    Unique medieval tale

    This was a unique twist on a medieval tale. With rumors swirling that the mysterious lord of Montsalvat was a beast by day and a man by night, what was Alienor supposed to do when she found herself promised to marry the man? In order to fulfill an ancient heritage and keep the line of royal succession going, Alienor and Dagobert were betrothed even before her birth. It doesn't help matters that everyone at the ceremony seems to be in on some secret except for her. How can this marriage hope to succeed when there is so much deception? And that's what keeps the story going. Even when the major secrets are revealed, Dagobert and Alienor fail to confide in and trust each other, so of course, misunderstandings abound. While they feel great passion for one another, they aren't sure it can ever be real love. I did like the love story, but I'm always in favor of telling the truth sooner! There is a bit of bloody sword-fighting and genocide going on, so the themes can get serious at times. It was interesting learning about the persecution of the Cathars at this time in history. There is also adventure and intrigue as the story shifts to Paris and back again. I enjoyed this tale. It moved along at a good pace, the romance was satisfying, and the secrets and intrigue kept me reading to find out more.

    A great read!

    Unicorn Bride is the first in the Unicorn Trilogy series by Claire Delacroix. The series was originally released in the 90's so this is not a new book, but it is the first time it has been released in ebook. The author has edited this version prior to re-release but she has stated that the story itself has not changed much. I have not read the original edition, so I can't make any comparisons there. Unicorn Bride is my first Claire Delacroix book, although I have a bunch on my ereader, and I have also read some of her work by her alter ego, Deborah Cooke. I thought Unicorn Bride was the perfect introduction to the historical world of Claire Delacroix, and it makes me wonder what has taken me so long to read her! The story had a bit of a fairy tale quality to it, that I enjoyed. It's full of action, romance, and intrigue, which begins on the very first page and doesn't really stop until the end. There were times when I was unsure how the author was ever going to pull of a happy ending, but somehow she managed it without abandoning all reason. I was so invested in the characters, and their story, that I found myself unable to put the book down until I finished. I am very much looking forward to reading more by this author, and hope that she re-releases the next book in the series in ebook, or that I can find an old copy of the original.

    This story has it all!

    Alienor de Perpignan is betrothed by her adopted father to a mysterious man who she will meet for the first time on her wedding day. The legends of Montsalvat which whisper of Dagobert, Count de Pereille, as a purported man/beast, don’t begin to prepare her for her horrifying nuptials nor for her blissful nuptial night. The duality of her husband is only the beginning of the terror that stalks this couple, but as problems beset them, they begin to appreciate and trust one another, ultimately forming an unbeatable team which triumphs over the evil that threatens them. As always in Ms. Delacroix’s books, the story is told in language and sentence structure which, though easily read and relatable, gives a feel for the time the story is set in. Not many authors can accomplish this so beautifully (how many times do you find modern language or idioms sneaking into “historical” romances?). This story has it all, secrets, pledges, deception, betrayal, misunderstanding, trust, political intrigue, a unicorn (!), and finally, love. I highly recommend! A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
