Sir Renaud de Pierrepont, the Norman knight known as the Red Wolf for the beast he slayed with his bare hands, hoped to gain lands with his sword. A year after the Conquest, King William rewards his favored knight with Talisand, the lands of an English thegn slain at Hastings, and orders him to wed Lady Serena, the heiress that goes with them.
Serena wants nothing to do with the fierce warrior to whom she has been unwillingly given, the knight who may have killed her father. When she learns the Red Wolf is coming to claim her, she dyes her flaxen hair brown and flees, disguised as a servant, determined to one day regain her lands. But her escape goes awry and she is brought back to live among her people, though not unnoticed by the new Norman lord.
Deprived of his promised bride, the Red Wolf turns his attention to the comely servant girl hoping to woo her to his bed. But the wench resists, claiming she hates all Normans.
As the passion between them rises, Serena wonders, can she deny the Norman her body? Or her heart?

 My Review

Sir Renaud de Pierrepont, AKA the Red Wolf is no stranger to battles but his hardest battle has yet to be won.

Lady Serena will not stand by and let a Norman rule over her lands. She dyes her hair and pretends to be a servant. But what if the only person she is lying to is herself?

The Red wolf meets his match in the Lady Serena and one or both of them will surrender.

Serena’s life has been turned upside down. Her father was killed in the battle of Hastings and her brother is in Scotland. Then she gets word that she is to marry a Norman and not just any Norman, but the Red Wolf. I think any lady would have done the same thing she did, flee. I glad she gets caught. *gasp* I know, but Ren and his knights aren’t all that bad. :D They live by a code and Ren expects all of them to follow. Of course there has to be a bad seed in the bunch and that had you guessing throughout the book. When is he going to show up, is someone going to die? I’m pretty sure I don’t have any nails left. Lol  

Although most of the book rings true, it is not entirely true. The author explains all that in the back of the book which I thought was pretty neat. I’m not a real history buff, but I like my historical romances and I particularly like when two opposing side come together. Nothing makes me smile more than the surrender of two hearts. :D I thank the author for this wonderful story. I want to have it on my shelf. I can see myself reading this again and I recommend it to all my followers. You will not be disappointed.

Overall: The Wolf has claimed my heart and I’m sure he will claim yours as well. Battles of many kinds are in this book as well as romance and hard decisions. The Red Wolf’s Prize is a prize indeed. It has everything you could want in a book. : D

Serena: I always admire a strong and willful lead. Serena cares about her people and she does what she thinks is best for them. She is has a killer aim with a bow and she has a beautiful singing voice. Its no wonder all the men love her.

Red Wolf/Ren: He is loyal to William and intends to claim his prize, which is Serena. He is a fair man and has a bit of a soft side. He is all male, but when he is around Serena he can’t control himself. Has the mighty wolf been tamed? You’ll have to read to find out.

There are other memorable characters but it would take forever to describe all of them. So, I’m going to do a shout out. Sir Geoffroi, Cassie, Rhodri, Maugris, and Sir Maurin, you guys are awesome!


About the Author

As a child Regan Walker loved to write stories, particularly about adventure-loving girls, but by the time she got to college more serious pursuits took priority. One of her professors encouraged her to pursue the profession of law, which she did. Years of serving clients in private practice and several stints in high levels of government gave her a love of international travel and a feel for the demands of the “Crown” on its subjects. Hence her romance novels often involve a demanding sovereign who thinks of his subjects as his private talent pool. Regan lives in San Diego with her golden retriever, Link, whom she says inspires her every day to relax and smell the roses. For more information please visit Regan Walker’s website and blog. You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads.
