|Jisella had been hidden away in the so long she thought her family had forgotten her. Then a band of conqueror Normans arrived to take her to the husband chosen for her by her father and the king. A loyal Saxon, she intended to be defiant to the end. Just to spite her new husband, a man she had never met, she planned to choose her own first lover, the Ever Knight her mother had always told her waited for her. A man she would love every lifetime for eternity. Little did she know the real danger in the man she picked.
This short novella is set in 1078, after the Norman conquest of Saxon England. Jisella was typical of well-bred females at the time. She and others are kept locked away in a convent to keep them pure until they go to the husband's beds. I thought Jisella was an interesting character and she definitely deserved the surprise waiting for her when she met her husband-to-be.
"The Ever Knight" is the first of Georgia Fox's The Conquerors series. It's a bawdy tale and well worth reading with a moral that a girl should be very careful of what she wishes for, because she just might get more than she bargained for when she pitted one brother against the other.
