Lord Henry of Montevoy is summoned by his childhood friend, Lady Jenova. Jenova had married a man whom Henry considered one of his best friends, but who also had betrayed his vows. Lady Jenova had found out years after her husband passed away and had vowed not to remarry. However, and despite the fact of having the protection of King William, Jenova is reconsidering, but she would like Henryís advice about her suitor. Henry is not too happy about having to abandon the court, but he can not ignore his friendís call.

When Henry arrives to Gunlinghorn, he suddenly realizes that he is looking at Jenova not as a friend, but as a woman. One afternoon, they go riding together, but a snowstorm catches them unawares, and they are stranded. It becomes rather obvious that the attraction is mutual, an attraction that is too tempting not to explore ... and their fate is sealed with a kiss ...

Kissing the Bride is the first of Sara Bennett historical romances that Iíve read. This nicely written medieval tale is a passionate story about two friends that suddenly realize that their feelings run deeper than they originally thought. Henry, who has some secrets that he is ashamed of, is reluctant to admit the depth of his feelings for Jenova, not considering himself worthy. Jenova, after having been betrayed by her husband, is reluctant as well. She is not willing to give herself completely to any man again. The cast of characters matches this nice tale. With plenty of intrigue and passionate interludes between Jenova and Henry, this historical romance will please most lovers of historical romance in a medieval setting.
