He’s a veritable god of beauty, position, and talent. She’s a lady of sweetness, wealth, and compassion. When gorgeous Cassius de Wolfe falls for a plain but sweet lady, the woman who hoped to have his affection doesn’t take kindly to it.
Cassius has set himself up for retribution of the female kind. As the old saying goes, there’s nothing like a woman scorned…
Or a de Wolfe protecting his mate.
Welcome to a de Wolfe Pack Generations tale!
Cassius de Wolfe, second son of Patrick “Atty” de Wolfe (Nighthawk), has made a name for himself as the Great Protector of Edward I. Cassius is the beauty of the family—handsome, skilled, built like the statue of a Greek god. He has no problem getting women into his bed, and in London, they follow him around in droves.
Cassius is a Medieval celebrity.
But all of that is secondary to the fact that Cassius is a truly skilled knight. He’s a de Wolfe, and that means the knighthood lives in him as surely as the sun lives in the sky. After two years away, he’s finally earned the chance to return home to see his father and mother and family, so on the eve of returning home, Fate has something else in mind for him.
Dacia of Doncaster is the heiress to a massive fortune. With both parents deceased, she is an only child, living with her elderly grandfather, the Duke of Doncaster. The old duke descends from an ancient royal line, and Dacia is the very last of her kind… and a hugely sought-after bride. There’s only one problem—she’s not what men would consider traditionally beautiful.
When Cassius the Handsome comes face to face with Dacia of Doncaster, a chance meeting turns into something more. Cassius wasn’t looking for a bride, and Dacia wasn’t looking for a husband, but when Dacia saves Cassius’ life, it’s more than a debt of honor he feels towards her.
Sometimes the most beautiful woman in the world isn’t the obvious one, and Cassius must find that out the hard way.
Join Cassius and Dacia for an unusual—and truly beautiful—love story.
**** My Review ****
Since my Literature teacher forced me to read ‘Pride & Prejudice’ , historical romances have become my weakness and greatest pleasure. I enjoy traveling to distant worlds, to other times when other rules and principles applied. And believe me that Wolfe Sword is a journey that checks all the boxes when it comes to historical romances.
An unexpected order from the king brings our brave hero to the household, where the quiet Dacia lives- the woman marked by the devil and evil spirits. A chance meeting arouses unexpected interest and excitement. But what will happen when his experienced eyes spot her unique and extraordinary beauty? When the feelings start becoming overwhelming and pull them towards each other? Will they have enough strength and faith to defend their chaste love from the evil tongues, malicious intentions, and envy?
With battles, fighting, and pure love, this novel has lots of elements that will keep your attention to the very end. The storyline is quite interesting and compelling, though a bit far-fetched in several parts. The characters were very well-developed. Cassius is a remarkable male species, hot-as-sin, loyal, proud, extremely attentive, and emotional. I was amazed by the fact that he’s unafraid to show his emotions and cry when the grief and emotions strike. Dacia is a lonely young woman whose self-esteem was shattered during her childhood. Instead of self-pity and bitterness, she wears her generosity and kind heart with pride. Her journey from a silent, meek mouse to a brave woman felt rushed as she changed from one moment to the next. I believe this process deserves greater importance and more profound elaboration. The secondary characters were nicely developed and well-integrated into the story, each one perfectly fitted in their role.
Wolfe Sword is a fascinating story, filled with humorous and witty dialogue. Beneath the swoon-worthy romance dwells a skillful exploration of the impact of childhood, emotional trauma, the setbacks of being an orphan, and envy as the culprit of many misfortunes. This novel emphasizes the healing power of love and acceptance. A great getaway for every historical fiction lover.
