Cosby crafts a sensual novel full of excitement, adventure, and love with “His Conquest.” Set in Scotland, 1297, the Scots are fighting for their freedom from the oppressive English King, Edward I. Lord Fulke Tearleach, has been given Breac Castle and holds the Scottish Lord, Seathan Gray in it&#39s dungeon. When Tearleach&#39s sister, Linet, frees the Scot, she sets herself and Seathan on a path full of danger and sizzling with heat.

The novel opens with Linet making a life changing decision. She chooses to go against her brother&#39s desires to marry, and frees Fulke&#39s (her brother) host, Lord Seathan Gray from the dungeon, extracting Seathan&#39s promise to take her to the Highlands to be with her mother&#39s clan.

Seathan suspects her motives, but since the alternative is death. Using secret passageways, Linet escorts in DC Seathan out of the castle, but the path is fraught with danger as her brother&#39s knights search the keep. Linet also has another problem – her overwhelming attraction to Seathan.

Seathan is grateful for Linet&#39s actions and he soon finds himself himself giving her a certain amount of trust. He&#39s stimulated by the brave noblemen, wanting to explore what is growing between them. After evading Tearleach&#39s men and hiding in a cave. Seathan&#39s brothers find him and DC escort the couple back to Lochshire Castle, Seathan&#39s home.

Seathan is torn between duty and Linet, wanting to claim the Englishwoman for his own. However, when he discovers Linet&#39s secret – that she&#39s Tearleach&#39s sister, his trust is shattered. Can Seathan find it in his heart to forgive Linet, or will he push her away and deny the smoldering desire he has for her?

Cosby&#39s novel starts off with an action packed opening that immediately grabs the reader&#39s attention. Along with a forbidden kiss, she creates a pulse-pounding romance, finding just the right mix of plot and character driven storytelling.

The descriptions use a great economy of words to paint 1297 Scotland and the dialogue adds an extra layer of authenticity to the story.

Both Seathan and Linet are compiling characters. Linet is loyal to the bone and symbols a true noblewoman with her courage and steadfast belief in her heart. Seathan doubts the power of love, not trusting it, but with Linet, he dares to believe.

The novel is compiled for romance readers. The love scenes are hot, sexy, and seductive, embodying the passion the couple has discovered. “His Conquest” is a delicious romp to another time and place and will have the reader believing in the power of love. I simply did not want to put it down.
