Fox Conquers The Virgin Proxy
The Virgin Proxy (Conquerors #2)
by Georgia Fox
When the Normans conquered England, Deorwynn lost almost everything, including her family. Only one beloved brother survives. To rescue him, she must sacrifice her virginity in the enemy’s bed. She should be well prepared. After spending fifteen years in a grim convent, punished for every sinful thought, Deorwynn can withstand any torment at the hands of a merciless, Norman warrior.
But nothing, she soon learns, could prepare her for falling in love.
Guy Devaux is delighted with the amorous virgin waiting for him on his wedding night. There’s only one problem. The saucy-mouthed wench is not his bride. Oh yes, he knows the veiled woman in his bed is an imposter, but he’ll go along with the game. For now. The punishment for her deception will come later.
Just as soon as he conquers this foolish desire, this yearning to hear her say she loves him.
The Virgin Proxy was an enjoyable historical romance. Light and funny more often than not, the story read fast. The banter between Guy and Deorwynn was fun and my head spun keeping track of the lies woven by each of them. It was a light take on an unlikely pairing with clues along the way that actually made these two make much more sense as a couple by the end. Readers will watch the lies they tell and the games they play slowly turn into love. And the sexual tension simmers, making readers wonder when the couple will move to the next step. The romance was both sweet and hot.
