Fires of Destiny by Linda Barlow
Love endures, even in the face of danger and death.
As a child, Alexandra Douglas adored her wild friend Roger Trevor, a troubled lad who turned his back on his family. Ten years as a sellsword and pirate have transformed Roger into a darkly handsome but enigmatic stranger. His return to his father's castle ignites a passionate uproar in the bookish and sensible Alix.
Dangerous to know...
Surprised by his unlikely desire for his childhood friend, Roger is determined to encase his heart in ice. Haunted by his past and trapped in a lethal web of intrigue, he fears entangling Alix in a mysterious plot that could doom them both.
But destiny has set them on colliding paths, and Roger can no more resist the fire in Alix than she can turn away from his increasingly ardent touch.
New, revised edition of a classic, award-winning romance
When the original version was published in 1986, Linda Barlow received the Romantic Times award as New Historical Romance Author of the Year. Fires of Destiny was also a finalist for the Rita Award from Romance Writers of America. This special new edition has been revised and edited by the author, but her beloved characters and their sensuous, suspenseful adventures remain the same.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really really loved this book. Ok, at first, I felt that it was starting to drag on. There are some points that it does. But I'm telling you, it's worth pushing through! This was one of the best Pirate-Historical-War Romances I have ever read! I loved Alix, and hot damn, that Roger sure did it for me. The majority of the characters are so well developed, you cry, you laugh, you really feel what they are going through. This book was just fantastically written! I loved it.
