Borderland Bride by Samantha Holt
This is the first book I've read by Samantha Holt and the first "medieval times" book. I wasn't sure how I would like it, but as I kept reading it, I loved it. Isabel is found by Jake beaten within inches of her life. Jake takes her back to his brother's villa to have her looked at by a doctor. Isabel is left deaf and mute from the beating with no idea if she will regain either sense. I fell in love with Jake just as quickly and easily as Isabel did. I loved how he took to her with such "love" even though he says that he will never love again do to pain from the past. The story is so romantic. I would love to read more of Samantha's writing.
