Book Description

Aug. 1 1994

A medieval age of passion and conquest -- a tumultous era of warriors and ladies... and noble hearts inflamed be desire and duty -- is brought to sumptous life through the storytelling mastery of Elizabeth Lowell, the New York times bestselling creator of incomparable romantic adventure.

Bewitched and betrayed. Simon the loyal has vowed neverr to love, for love has made great warriors weak. To bring peace to the disputed lands, he agrees to wed an unwilling Norman heiress who speaks only through the sad song she draws from her harp. Marriage is his duty and nothing more. Ariane has known only coldness from men -- and a betrayal so deep it all but killed her soul.And so she comes to Simon with resistance...and fear.

Yet marriage in name alone can never be enough -- for it is more than obligation that fires Simon's blood when first he sets eyes on his bewitching, reluctant bride. He must teach Ariane passion -- and she must teach him trust. For all that is good within them will surely perish unless they surrender their hearts to love...

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Simon the Loyal must marry Ariane the Betrayed in order to bring peace to the Disputed Lands. The catch? A brutal rape and her people's betrayal (hence the name) have left her unable to love and with a unreasonable fear of the marriage bed. This conflict drives the plot, but it is unnecessarily belabored during the first quarter of the book when it could have been cleared up by Ariane's simply explaining the situation to the seemingly understanding and compassionate Simon. This is not the only cause for confusion in this romance of 11th century England: Characters are hard to distinguish, having such similar names as Ariane and Amber, Dominic and Duncan and equally similar mystical powers--whether they be Learned, truth seers or witches. Lowell hones her writing skills in the second half of the book, finally displaying the talent behind the eight million copies of her titles in print. Her characters come into their own once freed from the mantle of a wearying plot device. The love scenes sizzle, motivations are plausible and the story becomes engrossing. Out of confusion comes a love story which will no doubt leave Lowell's loyal readers satisfied.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance Flourishes In 12th Century England! Oct. 26 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Elizabeth Lowell is frequently asked why she departed from the western and contemporary romance genres, which have been so successful for her, to write the medieval trilogy "Untamed,"
"Forbidden" and "Enchanted." She and her husband are both of Scots descent. On one of their visits to Scotland they had extra time to explore off the beaten path and, by chance, discovered the ancient ruins of a castle constructed in the 12th century. The castle had once belonged to her husband's clan, the Maxwells. Ms. Lowell and her husband then traveled to a town that had a museum devoted to the Maxwells and discovered that her family clan, the Charteris and her husband's, the Maxwell's, were linked through marriage for over nine hundred years. When Ms. Lowell found this out she decided to write a series based on medieval warriors and the women they loved.
Simon the Loyal and Ariane the Betrayed wed in order to bring peace to the Disputed Land, the border land between England and Scotland. Simon is attracted to Ariane, but does not believe in love. Ariane has suffered a brutal rape, a family betrayal and is deeply scarred. She cannot bear to be touched. The plot is driven by the conflict in the marriage, Simon's gentle wooing of Ariane and her refusal to tell him the truth about her past.
The novel brings back characters from Ms. Lowell's previous books: Duncan the warrior and his beloved Amber the Learned, Lord Dominic le Sabre, called the Glendruid Wolf, and Lady Margaret, Lord Erik, etc., but it is not necessary to read the other books in the series to appreciate this one. All the characters, their pasts and interactions are fully explained. There is mystery here, and magic, betrayal and deception, and tremendous chemistry between Simon and Ariane.

5.0 out of 5 stars a can't put down medieval romance! July 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have never read anything by Elizabeth Lowell before, but loving medieval romance books like I do, I started reading the first of the trilogy. OMG, these three books are WONDERFUL! You have got to read all three of the books(Untamed, Forbidden, Enchanted)! I am extremely picky about the romance books that I read. I could never pick a favorite of the three b/c they are all exceptional in their own way. I was assuming that they would all be similar since they are in a trilogy, but they are totally not alike at all. The first couple appear in the second book, and then the next couple and the first couple appear in the last book. It is so cool how they all interact w/each other.......I LOVED IT! I even loved the abilities that the women had in these books. Obviously, I cannot say enough good things! They are a must read. The only bad thing is when you've finished w/all three. But like the first review, Elizabeth Lowell.......you have got to write another one to this trilogy about Erik. He is awesome! He needs someone too! Please! And please keep writing medieval romances!

5.0 out of 5 stars INCOMPARABLE! July 7 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read a lot of romatic novels and so far this triology is one of my very favorite. But out of the three, Enchanted is my absolutely most preferred. And I think the reason of that is that in speaking of personality and character, Ariane and I are extremely alike. Even though I love all the characters Elizabeth has created, I still like Ariane above both Meg and Amber. Meg is, well, too innocent. She does have a fiercy fiber in her but is still far too simple-minded; Amber is, sorry to say, my least favorite herione in the triology, personaly I dispise a female who would bow down to the wrongdoings of her husband, especially the way Duncan treated her when he found out about his past, I would say that Amber is indeed desperately in need of some more backbone. And I think Simon is the most well-formed character of the whole triology except Erik. And the electricity that sparked between the two people with personalities and characters too alike is just more enthtralling than the soft surrender of seduction. And though personally I would choose someone like Erik, who is my absolute favorite character, I still love the way Elizabeth created Simon, a ruthless and unforgiving man who was finally taught to love by the "bravest warrior he's ever known". And speaking of which, I am biting my nails at waiting for the fourth book on Erik, I would love to see what kind of female could bring down his proud, wolfish head, and enthrall him into a love he totally deserves.
If you haven't read this triology, please do it. I have read almost all the New York Times Best Selling romatic authors and this triology is definately at the top of my list. I think it doesn't really matter which sequence you read it in, just do it, and I can guarantee you for 95% that the storied would completely seize your heart and won't let go.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a long-time fan Jan. 21 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been a long time fan of Ms Lowell and have read and collected every available book of hers I could lay my hands on. I have found each of her books to have a charm all its own and consider them as "keepers".
I have to agree with a lot of other readers though that "Enchanted" was the best of her three medieval romances. Simon and Arianne were in a class of their own. I have read and re-read their story at least 20x and I'm sure will do so at least 20 more times. It is a book that I can recommend wholeheartedly.
Message to author: By the way, I have just read that Ms Lowell has finally written Erik's story. I would just like to tell her that I, like countless others of your fans, have been looking forward to reading his story for years and I'm glad and thankful that you were finally able to "put him together". I can hardly wait. Thank you Ms Lowell for all the hours of pleasure you have given me through you books. You're a great and imaginative writer/storyteller. Good luck, always.
