Reclaimed by her Rebel Knight
Sir Matthew Wintour/Lady Constance Lacelby
My Rating: 5/5
Married to a perfect stranger
Reunited with her warrior husband
When Constance inherited her father’s lands she had no choice but to marry cold-hearted Matthew Wintour. He left her for the battlefield without even a wedding night. Five years later Matthew has returned—a valiant knight! But Constance is no longer a frightened girl. And this time she must reach out to discover the honourable man behind the armour and what pleasures await them in the marriage bed…
Reclaimed by Her Rebel Knight is author Jenni Fletcher’s latest book set in England in 1214. I always get excited when Ms. Fletcher has a new book coming out! Whether it’s a Medieval, Regency, Victorian, or Roman story, Ms. Fletcher knows her time period’s well. She always does extensive research, and the reader always comes away richer in knowledge, along with the satisfaction of reading a fantastic romance story. Her books are a joy to read and this one was no exception!
Lady Constance Lacelby was only fourteen when she was forced to wed Matthew Wintour the eldest son of a neighboring baron, shortly after both her parents died. Although they’ve been married for five years, she has only met him once on their wedding day. She’s not even sure she remembers what he looks like…
Sir Matthew Wintour hasn’t been in England in 5 years. He’s been in Normandy fighting for the King. Like Constance, he was forced into this marriage and knows nothing at all about being a husband. He’d rather face a dozen French soldiers single-handed…
What a great couple! I absolutely loved their first meeting together after being separated for 5 years. They are strangers trying to get to know each other with lots of misunderstandings between them. Constance is a young, intelligent woman with a spark about her, who is self-conscious of her looks. Matthew has other concerns than to deal with a wife he has no idea how to talk to. But he’s an honorable man and feels a responsibility towards Constance. Both decide that they want to make their marriage work and they set off on their life together by traveling to Lacelby, Constance’s home. On the journey to Lacelby, they first make a stop at Wintercott, Matthew’s father’s home. As Matthew faces his family and ghosts of the past, Constance and he grow closer.
This was such a well written and perfectly paced story! Ms. Fletcher did a fabulous job of giving this couple time to get to know each other and to let their relationship grow. There were also wonderful secondary characters such as Alan and Adelaide that I wouldn’t mind revisiting at a later date. With the political drama of the time in the background, this was a perfect story of intrigue, suspense, and romance! I’ll admit from the moment I picked up this book, I struggled to put it down. It’s actually a common occurrence when reading a Jenni Fletcher book! 😉 I absolutely loved the ending and I always enjoy reading Ms. Fletcher’s historical notes. As I mentioned earlier in my review, Ms. Fletcher does extensive research and it always shows in how well the story is written. You don’t just read it, you feel it, you see it as if you were there. I highly recommend this book and author, you won’t be disappointed!
