This was the very first romance novel that I ever read. I was a senior in high school and thought that it was the most heart throbbing story that I had ever read. This is the story of Wulfgar, a Noman knight in King William's army who have just marched into England to claim the throne, and Aislinn, a Saxon maiden who looses her father and home to the invading army. Aislinn has to adjust to her change in circumstances and with that decides that maybe Wulfgar isn't the monster she feared him to be. The love scenes are vague compared to today's standard so it may be a little tame for some, but Woodwiss will always have a place in this romance readers heart.
Noble Aislinn grieves as the Iron Wolf and his minions storm through her beloved Darkenwald. And she burns with malice for the handsome Norman savage who would enslave her. . .even as she aches to know the rapture of the conqueror's kiss.
For the first time ever, mighty Wulfgar has been vanquished - and by a bold and beautiful princess of Saxon blood. He must have the chaste, sensuous enchantress who is sworn to his destruction. And he will risk life itself to nurture with tender passion a glorious union born in the blistering heat of hatred and war.
