Sierran Morgan is a man living on borrowed time but Anna Celeste Allen is the key to keeping him alive.

Thrown into the dungeon of a madman, Commander Sierran Morgan does not expect to survive his encounter. Tortured brutally, he knows he is living on borrowed time. When he is rescued by his men, Sierran will garner his revenge on the dungeon master by taking the man and his innocent daughter hostage. The last thing he counted on was Anna Celeste Allen’s willingness to help him heal from her father’s vicious abuse.

Anna Celeste had been a virtual prisoner in her own home all her life. She was never to know a home and family of her own though her fevered dreams were filled with daring knights coming to rescue her.

Falling in love with Anna wasn’t something Sierran planned but he falls hard for the beautiful young woman. On board his ship, he takes Anna as his bride amd vows to give her all her father had denied her. But when he returns home, he is stunned to learn his family had married him by proxy to his father’s mistress so they could gain an inheritance Sierran never wanted.

With one wife he’ll fight to keep and another he would rather die than touch, Sierran’s life will never be the same.

Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, violence, graphic torture.

Heroes come in many forms. So do monsters. Some people rise above their station while others sink to new depths. In The Wyndmaster’s Lady, the characters do this and more.

Ms. Boyett-Compo’s work is intriguing. Her characters are intelligent and captivating. Her antagonist is brilliantly evil, while the protagonists work together to bring about the climax. Although there were many characters to follow, the story never waned. I liked the unique mix of historical and fantastical. That mix drew me into the story and held my attention to the last page. I also liked that the antagonist wasn’t always clear and that the evil characters were truly evil.

My favorite scene was the initial love scene on the boat. What could’ve come across as contrived or silly was written in a very human fashion. Who was honestly suave the first time they made love?

If you like historicals, then The Wyndmaster’s Lady is for you. If you prefer fantasy titles, again, grab this book. I give this unique novel 4 ½ cherries.
