Left a bequest by a woman with rare psychic powers, Eada of Pevensey suddenly finds herself in possession of a box containing a mysterious document…and something even more extraordinary: the gift of second sight. Now she can actually “see” her chilling fate: a Norman invader with sea-dark eyes riding across the fields to claim her lands…and her love.

A reluctant soldier for William the Conquerer, Drogo de Toulon seizes the Pevensey lands as a right of conquest…and meets a woman who defies him at every turn—and arouses uncontrollable desire. Yet now, as war rages across a divided England, the two lovers must find the bond that joins body and soul…as they chart a course through battle and betrayal that could break their hearts—or seal their passion for all time…

Praise for Hannah Howell and her Highland novels…

“Few authors portray the Scottish highlands as lovingly or colorfully as Hannah Howell.” —Publishers Weekly

“Expert storyteller Howell pens another Highland winner.” —Romantic Times

A Romance story you cannot help but love! (Wednesday, July 4, 2012)
Reviewer: Kathy Jund

Hannah Howell delivers a definitely classic romance story even though it is coming to us for the second time! The re-release of Unconquered keeps you turning the pages with a smile on your face in this historical romance set in 1066 England during the time of William the (Bastard) Conqueror. Eada, the daughter of Lord Waltheof and Lady Vedette of Pevensey has no idea that life, as she knows it will soon come to an abrupt halt. Eada, running with her dogs makes her way to visit Old Edith, the friend she treasures most of all, who lives in the secluded hills outside of Pevensey far away from the danger that has just arrived on their shores. Old Edith, a woman now of advanced years, banished to the hills above Pevensey long ago by the very townspeople who feared the “sendings” she would receive and the truth that always came of them. Old Edith had much to say to Eada this day, of most importance, was the promise she evoked from Eada to heed all they had spoke of, for not only her future but the future of Saxon Pevensey itself, would soon become fatedly entwined with the Norman man who rode with William the Conqueror, their enemy.
