April 15 1976 Troubadour Books
The Wolf

Noble Aislinn grieves as the Iron Wolf and his minions storm through her beloved Darkenwald. And she burns with malice for the handsome Norman savage who would enslave her. . .even as she aches to know the rapture of the conqueror's kiss.

The Dove

For the first time ever, mighty Wulfgar has been vanquished--and by a bold and beautiful princess of Saxon blood. 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.

Product Description

From Amazon

When the Normans invade and sweep across Saxon England in 1066, lovely Aislinn of Darkenwald watches her father murdered outside her home. Wulfgar, the Iron Wolf of Normandy, arrives to rule Darkenwald, and one look at Aislinn leads him to claim her as his own. She hates the Norman conquering forces, but Wulfgar awakens a consuming passion in her that she can't deny. As she struggles with her growing love for Wulfgar, she does what she can to aid her conquered people and her bereaved mother. But a jealous lord conspires with Wulfgar's spoiled half-sister and Aislinn's very life is threatened before Wulfgar can admit that the woman he conquered has in truth, conquered his heart. This beloved historical romance deserves a special place on the shelves of millions of romance readers and shouldn't be missed. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Heart Melts! Feb. 19 2005
By Randi
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read The Wolf and the Dove so many times, I can't even keep track of the number! Everytime I read it, my heart just melts as the drama unfolds for Aislinn. Her stoic calm, pride and bravery is heartbreaking. I love this book! This is by far Kathleen Woodiwiss's best piece ever. Bravo!

3.0 out of 5 stars long winded June 30 2004
By nitpick
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Enjoyed the story very much, but pages dragged on that could have been summed-up in paragraphs. I'd like to try this author again, have another of her books in my to-be-read pile, I just haven't found the time yet.
If you're looking for an interesting historical romance (though frustrating at times) try this on a raining day.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best I have ever read. June 8 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book I believe is one of the best that's if you like love. I read this book and I fell in love with it. It's a story of getting over but not forgetting the past and going on. Through tough times and feelings that confuse she fights for her people and her mother and herself. Never giving in even when the impossiable comes she keeps her faith! The new lord of the land will fall in love with her and her with him for a story for the books!
You don't have to believe me but what I write is what I feel and if you feel as though I do I would suggest that you read this because I know you would be very pleased and would want to buy it as I have.

5.0 out of 5 stars KW always writes ten star books!!!! April 16 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is no exception! KW is truly a gifted writer and I know that when I sit down to read one of her books, I am not getting up until it is finished. Wulf and Aislinn had it all. The love and the sexiness, the humor, even the tears. They were well suited in every area and I loved how Aislinn came through her horrible ideal as such a lovely person. This book is a treasure and is now residing on my keepers shelf along with all the rest of KW's books!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wolf and The Dove March 25 2004
By Lee C.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the best historical romance I've ever read. The cover is worn bare because I keep reading it over and over. Aislinn is the most incredible heroine but Wulfgar is by far the best hero I've ever read. The characters of this book have awesome depth and the history is perfection. I was wrapped around her finger in the introduction. I've read hundreds of historicals but there's just something about this one... It's steamy and passionate but it's logical and sensitive at the same time. I could so visualize Wulgar rescuing Aislinn from her falling horse in the streets of London. I could smell the smells and hear the sounds. They just don't get any better than this!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was incredible from start to finish! March 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first K. Woodiwiss novel. I was a bit hesitant to read it after reading the negative reviews here. I just finished the book and found no justification for the complaints written. Yes, there is a rape in the beginning. Yes, the Saxons were treated horribly by the invading Normans. But, people! It was the year 1066! Frankly, the reality of the Norman Invasion was probably much more disturbing than what was described in the novel. And at least (unlike in Catherine Coulter's "Devil's Embrace), it's not hero of the story raping the heroine. Now that book was disturbing. But I digress...
This was a fabulous historical romance. I only have two complaints: the love scenes were EXTREMELY tame. I mean, most of the time the author just says they did it and leaves it at that. Secondly, the author gets a little wordy in the war scenes. I understand she wanted to provide a little background and maybe the story would have suffered without them, but I just skimmed those pages.
I cannot say enough about this book. I want to recommend it without giving away too much of the plot. If like medieval romance, you won't be disappointed!
