9780060565435: Return of the Warrior (Brotherhood of the Sword, Book 2)

Fearless men, their allegiance is to each other, to the oppressed, and to the secret society known as the Brotherhood of the Sword -- and they must never surrender to the passionate yearnings of their noble hearts.

Fiercely devoted to her people and her land, Queen Adara refuses to let a power-mad usurper steal her crown. But the only way to protect what is hers is to seek out the man she married in childhood.

A proud, tormented warrior, Christian of Acre owes allegiance only to the mysterious Brotherhood -- and has no wish to be king over anyone but himself. Now a bold and beautiful stranger has appeared in his rooms, tempting him with an irresistible seduction and demanding he accompany her back to their kingdoms ... or, at the very least, provide her with an heir to her throne. Though he cannot abandon the brave regal lady to her enemies, Christian dares not give in to his traitorous body's desires. Yet how can he deny the passion that is rightfully his and the ecstasy that awaits him in Adara's kiss?

About the Author:

New York Times bestselling author Kinley MacGregor lives a life of extraordinary danger...as does any woman with three sons, a husband, a menagerie of pets, and a collection of swords that all of the above have a major fixation with. But when not running interference (or dashing off to the emergency room), she can be found chained to her computer where she likes to play with all her imaginary friends. With more than ten million copies of her books in print, in 26 countries, she certainly has a lot of friends to play with, too.

Writing as Kinley MacGregor and Sherrilyn Kenyon, she is the author of several series including: The Dark-Hunters, Brotherhood of the Sword, Lords of Avalon, and BAD. With an international, cult following, her books have appeared in the top three on the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestseller lists.

From Publishers Weekly:

Plenty of passion can't save this weakly plotted second entry in MacGregor's Brotherhood of the Sword series (after Dark Champion). Queen Adara must find the husband she hasn't seen since they wed as children if she is to save her small kingdom near Byzantium. Unfortunately, Adara's quest reaches an obstacle in Prince Christian himself, who not only has forgotten their marriage but wishes to avoid anything restricting his freedom. Raised in a monastery after the death of his parents and recently released after having spent six years in a squalid prison, Christian wants only to avenge wrongs done to fellow knights who shared his sufferings as a captive of the Saracens. While evidently set during the Crusades, the book has only a perfunctory sense of time and place. The trite, simplistic dialogue ("Fine, Adara. Whenever you decide to grow up and act responsibly, I shall be in our tent") as well as Adara's ability to say good-bye in several anachronistic languages ("Bon voyage. Auf Wiedersehen. Vaarwel. Arrivederci") show that MacGregor, who scored highly with her MacAllister series (Claiming the Highlander, etc.), has really stumbled here.

She has to find her wayward husband and either return home with him or return home pregnant. If she fails, her beloved country will be overrun by her husband s uncle who seeks to murder them and steal both their thrones. Christian of Acre has no desire to be king of anyone except himself.
