When Aislinn discovers that Gwyneth is the traitor, she tells Bolsgar, Wulfgar's father, who goes to warn Wulfgar.
While the majority of the men are away, Ragnor's men attack, taking Aislinn and her newborn son, Bryce, with them as hostages. Gwyneth also goes, believing that Ragnor cares for her. Along the way, Ragnor grows tired of Bryce's crying, and Aislinn, fearing that Ragnor will kill the child, leaves him with an old crone they encounter along the way. Wulfgar and Bolsgar follow but become separated. Wulfgar battles Ragnor, but it's Gwyneth, mortally wounded herself, who kills Ragnor, apologizing to Aislinn and Wulfgar for her behavior toward them.
Aislinn and Wulfgar return to Darkenwald, fearful for Bryce's life, to discover that things at the manor are well. Aislinn's mother, Maida, has apparently recovered from her hatred of those who killed her husband - a process begun with the birth of her grandchild. Bolsgar - who had lived his life believing Wulfgar was fathered by some other man - is joyful and reveals that he "bought" Bryce from the old crone and that he is certain that Wulfgar is his son and that Bryce is Wulfgar's because of a family birthmark that appears on every other generation.
He mu. He must have the chaste, sensuous enchantress who is sworn to his destruction. And he will risk life itself to nurture with tender passion a glorious union born in the blistering heat of hatred and war. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

I have never met another Azlynn but many Aislings and Ashlynns. I wonder how Kathleen would have pronounced it? Aislinn My name is pronounce "Az-lynn". Any authors similar in the writing style to Woodiwiss, as far as the historical detail, but with a little more sizzle? Similar to Penelope Williamson's 'Keeper of the Dream? This was about as sizzley as it got back then and compared to most written then …more I read this, on the side, when I was in college studying English Lit.
This was about as sizzley as it got back then and compared to most written then I was totally stunned with the sizzle. I guess you could say this was the beginning of sizzle!

Aug 20, Misfit rated it did not like it Shelves: The worst medieval romance I have ever read. The Wolf and the Dove starts in as William has invaded England and the conquering Normans take control of the Saxons and their lands.
I'd go into the plot in detail, but so many other reviewers have already done so I don't see the need to rehash it again. Eighteen years old and unmarried when girls were married at fourteen and fifteen, and a spinster at By page I've lost count of how many times her bodice has been ripped and she's been groped. Maybe this was where the term bodice ripper came from! Worse yet, not once, but twice she's so carried away to hurry to greet new arrivals that she forgets to put her shoes on!!??
Potatoes and Velvet in the 11C? I don't think so. Worst of all, at least for this reader, was no chemistry at all between Aislinn and Wolfgar, a death knell for a romance novel. Aislinn was a spineless twit and Wolfgar was a pompous overbearing macho male chauvinist p The book was long winded and I found myself skipping many pages on my way to the final and painful ending.
I have read other books by Woodiwiss and while not high fiction I've found them a pleasant way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon. However, this book is not one of them, and I strongly urge other potential readers to consider all the opinions carefully before making this your reading choice. As quoted on some of her book jackets, the next best thing to time travel. View all 37 comments. Woodiwiss is well known for taking the romance genre into the bedroom in Still you will not find explicit sex scenes.
The Wolf and the Dove was first published in , two years after Eighteen year old Aislinn of Darkenwald becomes an object of the spoils of war and now belongs to Wulfgar, the Iron Wolf of Normandy.
And even though he may be the enemy, Aislinn is intrigued by this handsome stranger. Woodiwiss completely captures my attention within the first few pages and I enjoyed every minute of the tempestuous journey of Wulfgar and his Aislinn, captor and slave.
Again, not a problem for me. I found Aislinn to be a heroine that I loved. She falls hard for this sexy warrior, and while he may be satisfied with their relationship as it is, she wants commitment.

That was the case with Wulfgar in this meandering mess of a medieval.

Talvert The Last Carnival is in a romance so well-executed with nary a word wasted that it continues to blow my mind. Apart from an addiction to word count and a fear of plot, that is. The book started out well and I was getting good vibes from it. But about halfway through, I had to admit to myself that I was only reading er, well, skimming a bit here and there at a gallop, if I'm being completely honest because of Wulfgar. My commitment to continue sure wasn't for Aislinn, who is one of the more bipolar heroines I've come across.
KEW obviously liked writing about Aislinn smiling and giggling and being all giddy and winsome because she would have the broad flipflop in her moods all the time. It peaked when view spoiler [a pregnant Aislinn flees Wulfie because she's afraid he'll take the baby and send it away once it's born, but then when he catches up to her, she gets all giggly and snuggly and practically dives under the blankie.
Why are you happy to see him??? But Wulfie was worth the extra day or two it took me to skim through this one. If there had been less descriptive crap and stuck-in-neutral narrative, I might have been compelled to gobble up every scene he was in and read it more closely.
But both faults dragged the whole book down, Wulfie included. The poor guy did the best he could with what he was given. Despite being yummily alpha, he was unable to reach in through the window and shift the car into gear because Woodiwiss the Puppet Master was all too happy to bounce in her seat and grin at the unmoving scenery. Without the rather OK cast of supporting characters it'd be a 1 for the sheer and utter boredom of Nothing.
So 2 stars. But Wulfie put up with a lot from both heroine and author, so I give him an extra star. View all 18 comments. Jul 24, Inara rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Title in German: Woodiwiss and its still my most loved one. The story between Aislinn the daughter of a Saxon baron and Wulfgar a Norman and how they came to love each other in a time of war, conquest and upheaval makes me still sighing happily and my eyes suspiciously bright.
Wulgar is my epitome of a noble knight, kind and strong, tender and yet a great warrior and I almost fell instantly in love with him at the age of 17 Title in German: Wulgar is my epitome of a noble knight, kind and strong, tender and yet a great warrior and I almost fell instantly in love with him at the age of 17 when I read this novel for the first time. This book is in my opinion a "classic" in the medieval romance genre and a balm for my romantic heart.

For me, it was my junior and senior years in high school and my freshmen year of college. I had a friend in high school who actually had to hide such books in her underwear drawer.
Her mother would've flipped out. We pretty much read them because of the trashy romance novel sex scenes. Except for the Guardian Angel. He read Harlequin Romances; I'm not sure why. And then. And then I read one too many where th I think there is a point in most women's lives where they have read trashy romance novels.
And then I read one too many where the heroine was raped by the "romantic" lead. Admittedly these were books published in the late 70s and early 80s used bookstores sold them cheap. There was one called The Pirate's Doxy or something like that. Poor Miss Virgin gets mistaken for a prostitute when she is really a seamstress, gets taken aboard a ship because the captain needs a hooker to get over his ex.
He rapes Miss Virgin, believing that she was playacting. He's really sorry, and they fall in love. It's amazing how that can just turn your stomach. You can no doubt see why I stopped reading trashy romance novels. The fact that I minored in history also undoubtedly had something to do with it.
Except, I didn't really stop reading them. I just call it urban fantasy, and the heroine can turn into werewolf or a demon or whatever , so it has fantastic elements, though sometimes less sex scenes. The women tend to kick butt, however. I also re-read Outlander this summer. There has to be something about romance books that speak to women and at least one male.
Maybe it is the sex scenes, especially with the younger readers. Maybe it is the prefect guy, the romantic lead, though I doubt this last considering how many rapes seem to occur. I understand the whole "rape fantasy" psyche idea, but that is different than describing a real rape, isn't it?
Even in UF you can see this rape fantasy being overplayed and never really examined, for instance, in the later Anita Blake novels, though who is the victim and who is the rapist is sometimes unclear. Maybe these types of rape-romance books are written by men for men.
This would also explain Lifetime, the channel of women in trouble needing rescuing. Maybe women dig romance books because such books are our version of James Bond. This theory would also apply to soap operas. Think about it. Is James Bond really that realistic? Can he really drink and shot straight? Would all those women really want him and remember he wasn't always played by Connery or Craig? Would a bad guy really reveal his plan before trying to kill Bond, and walk out without making sure the super-spy is dead?
All those women and no STDs or screaming babies? Maybe romance books are a female version of Bond. Here is, the books say, a man who is tamed by the love of a good women. He becomes more understanding and sympathetic as the love story progresses. He's really good in bed. He pleasures her, not the other way around. They are the perfect match, at first sexually and then mentally and emotionally.
In romance books, at least in some, the woman does change the man; she does have some power to do this. Even in the Doxy book I cited above, the rapist became "nicer", more "emotional". She changes him by simply being who she is. Sovereignty, the Wife of Bath says, is what women want, maybe romance books offer a picture of that. It's true that there are books that play with the standard cliches of romantic fiction. Outlander , for instance, inverts the standard virgin and experienced roles, as well the ages, which is why I still like it.
While The Wolf and the Dove doesn't do this exactly, I still have my copy. I liked this book because there is no character rape. There is a near rape, and how this is not a rape is absolutely wonderfully explained. It sounds weird, but if you read the book, you'll see. The would be rapist is not the romantic lead, but the villain.
