Product Description

The Conquerors, 6

Lady Amias has a bad temper. She's been rejected by four husbands already and Stryker Bloodaxe could be her last chance to escape spinsterhood. Unfortunately he has the civility and refinement of a randy bull, and his remote manor on the wild, Cornish moor never housed a female unless she was a servant or a whore.


Amias knows Stryker doesn't want a wife, but he needs her bride purse and he's just desperate enough to take her on, reputation and all. Whatever is required to claim the haughty lady's dowry, this ruthless warrior will do it.


Except one thing.


He'll never give his heart.


Undaunted, Amias strikes a bargain with her barbarian. After all, he has other parts to share, even if his heart is out of bounds. He may think he's unlovable, his manor uninhabitable for a lady, but she hasn't earned the name "Ami the Unbreakable" for nothing.

 

Be Warned: anal sex, public exhibition.

Excerpt:

     Her abductor bellowed to his band of brigands, "Save the horses first as they're of most value."

    Ami's teeth rattled as they picked up speed. "You ignorant warthog, put me down at once."   

    "That's fine thanks for saving you, wench."

    "Wench? Wench?" She could barely breathe, fury scorched her throat. "You flea-ridden animal, let me go at once!"

    His heavy hand came down on her buttocks, roughly pulling the cloth of her gown further up all the way to her waist until she felt the brisk air on her skin. While his horse kept the rapid bouncing pace that rendered her dizzy, he slapped her hard on her bare bottom. She felt the worn leather of his gauntlet and heard his laughter, as a series of quick, hard slaps vibrated though her body and pressed her down even harder across his groin. She cursed, warning he would pay for this scandalous treatment of her person.

    At that threat her kidnapper had the audacity to laugh harder. "Oh I will pay your price, wench. Just as agreed. Worry not, I keep to my bargains."

    She could scarce believe her ears, but in the next breath his gloved forefinger slid down the crack of her exposed backside, forced its way between her clenched thighs and found her pussy lips. There he exerted pressure of a sort she'd only ever experienced with her own hand. Heat flooded her sex and Ami knew her face —and her arse—must be blushing scarlet.

    "Get off me, cruel fiend!" she cried, struggling with renewed determination. He ignored her, but forced a second finger between her legs and then rubbed with both, trying to squeeze them between her labia. To her shame the motion soon made her moist. Her mound was pressed down in his lap and she felt a stiffening there, protruding upward, further increasing her discomfort—and also, most strangely, the waves of wicked pleasure now coursing through her.

    What was he doing to her? What did he mean by a bargain and getting his money's worth?

    "Your writhing makes me hot and hard, wench," he grunted. He took his hand from between her legs and then she heard him give a soft, low whistle. "You're wet for me, eh?"

    "Yes, I am wet," she exclaimed. "Soaked through in this miserable rain. Now let me go."

    He spanked her again and returned his fingers to the molestation of her pussy which, try as she might to prevent it, blossomed under the attention. "I've paid for you for three nights of entertainment, wench. But I appreciate the act." He chuckled and the hard protuberance in his breeches twitched again, pushing at her mound, grinding against her wet heat. "A little maidenly reluctance whets the appetite, but you needn't continue with it. I've no fancy for rape. Save that performance for other customers."

    "Customers? Are you a madman? Set me down now and I shall see to it that no retaliation is taken against you."

    They were leaving the wintering field and entering a clump of bare trees, dead leaves soggy under the horse's hooves. He slowed his horse and his hand swept up to caress her arse, almost as if he soothed a frightened animal. "I don't think I can wait to get to the manor," he muttered huskily. "I'm likely to spend in my breeches.”

    Barely had the horse stopped moving before Amias was on the ground, wet and rotting leaves beneath her. She cursed at him, but those words apparently rolled off his skin along with the sweat and the rain. He had both her wrists in one of his large hands and hauled them up over her head. The worn leather gauntlet was rough and damp, his fingers like manacles. His heavy body laid over her and with one knee he forced her writhing legs apart.

    "Don't you dare," she cried, arching her back, trying to buck him off.

    "I told you to stop the act, my saucy vixen. You've got me nicely roused already."

    Discarding the other gauntlet in the leaves beside her, he used his free hand under her gown and shift, parting her thighs wider. She looked up into his face then for the first time and found eyes the color of steel, his lips parted by harsh, moist breaths. Speckles of dirt and blood liberally dusted his rugged features. His mouth was hard, his nose long and slender. Damp, sun-kissed hair stuck to his brow and his chin was rough, unshaven. She caught a gleam of strong teeth, like those of a snarling beast ready to devour its prey. But his eyes drew her back again. They held her as firmly as his left hand held her wrists to the soft, wet ground.

    And then his bare hand slapped up between her thighs and cupped her sex. His palm was callused, hard, the skin warm from the leather gauntlet he'd just removed.

    Although he claimed to have no fancy for rape, what was this? "Do you take all your women by force?" She hissed. "I suppose you can get them no other way." Her body might be helpless, but her tongue was not.

    He gave no reply. His broad hand squeezed slowly, the heel of his palm exerting pressure on her mound, his long fingers rubbing her labia. The flames flared again inside Ami, much to her indignation. How could his touch do this to her? She was familiar with the slow smoldering caused by her own hand on her sex, but when this man fondled her it sparked much quicker. She felt her body melting, her own dew dripping onto his fingers, further humiliating her. And when one corner of his mouth lifted in a knowing smirk she knew he felt it too.

  1. The Romance Review

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Jan 2013

    THE BARBARIAN is a delightful, sexual retelling of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. I love the humor, sensuality and unique leads. Any historical romance reader should read this.

    Lady Amias is bad tempered and tired of being a pawn to witless men. Now she's off to the castle of her fifth and hopefully final fiancé, Stryker, but with low expectations. Upon meeting the uncivilized Stryker, Amias is worried she'll be sent back to her abusive uncle so she strikes a deal with Stryker: her dowry for him being tolerable to her. But Stryker and Amias are incapable of keeping their relationship strictly business.

    This is a delightfully witty retelling of Taming of the Shrew. Amias is blunt, angry, foul-mouthed and strong. She's a unique romance heroine but even more unique in a medieval historical and I loved her for this. I suspect some readers will nitpick that Amias is too modern in her independence but I found her character pure fun. Stryker is a good character in that he starts off clueless how to be kind or tender and stumbles his way into love with Amias. I love both these strong, opinionated characters attempting to form a connection together when they're both trying to protect themselves and figure out how they feel. The sexual intimacy mirrors their emotional romance and is steamy and heartfelt. The romance forms the plot of the novel and had me invested from the moment Amias first appears.

    I do have to mention a modern day beginning and ending that doesn't really fit the rest of the story and I'm not sure of the point. However, I acknowledge that this is book six in a series and I haven't read the previous five so maybe this modern day storyline makes more sense in the series context.

    THE BARBARIAN is a wonderful read with a spicy and emotional romance and plenty of humor to make it all pure fun.

    Why deny it? I’m addicted to Georgia Fox’s Conqueror series. The Barbarian, her latest release, does not disappoint.

    Reminiscent of the Taming of the Shrew in some ways, The Barbarian turned out to be an excellent read. I swept through the 120 page novella in just a few hours, liking both brutish Stryker and “Ami the Unbreakable“. Although, I must admit that at first my feelings toward the hero were conflicted, see-sawing between both hate and love. After all, submitting the heroine to cunnilingus while being watched by another man is not very gentlemanly! Then there was the fact that he did come off as brutish and a bit dumb but as the story progressed I easily felt myself falling for his charm, for as he himself says: “[…] however rough his manners, Stryker was not stupid. His wisdom was merely of a different kind to the sort she recognized.”

    The plot of this story is not complicated. The love between Amias and Stryker happens fast, but Ms. Fox has a way with words that makes it believable that two such opposing characters could fall for each other so quickly and not sound fake or forced. As usual, the erotic scenes were first rate. Unlike other stories where the characters might have tried out different things such as toys or ménages, here, the love scenes turned out to be both tender and hot. It was easy to feel the chemistry between the barbarian and the lady form the start.

    However, the only thing that puzzled me and left me a bit disgruntled was the two contemporary chapters at the beginning and at the end of the novel. Set apart from the bulk of The Barbarian, they felt like a message from the author, though to me it was not clear if it was a farewell or simply her way to tell us that there was really no end to her stories.

    That aside, The Barbarian is a fun read for anyone with a passion for short, quick historical romances.

    Stryker Bloodaxe had lost his first love, his neighbor's daughter, and the land that came with her, to a Norman knight. He had to settle for the Lady Amias of York, a by-blow of King William, to be his wife to prevent any action against one of the king's favorite knights. With her came a fat bride's purse that Stryker needed for his remote properties. What he didn't need was the lady wife to go with it, especially one who had been promised to four other men before him. Outspoken and “Unbreakable,” Ami wasn't going to let this Barbarian conquer her even if marrying him was her last chance to avoid the madhouse or a convent.
    I was pleased with the character of Stryker Bloodaxe. A man of Norse descent, he was born to rule his land. Yet even this strong man had a conscience, common sense and a strong sense of responsibility. When he does something, like locking his argumentative bride-to-be in the drunk hut, he does think about what he's done and whether he was right or not. Amias is a strong character. She knows this is her last chance and she must commit to Stryker, but she is determined to make the marriage a situation she can live with. She's willing to work with her barbarian husband but she needs him to compromise as well.

    The Barbarian is book six of The Conquerors series by Georgia Fox. Unlike the other books in the series, there is a story within a story here, and the outer, present day story doesn't work in my opinion. The Barbarian story starts half way through the first chapter. Because the present day story is unnecessary and confusing, I suggest you skip it and only read The Barbarian, otherwise you'll have to make a jarring mental switch. I would give the main story of Stryker and Amias a higher rating but the outer, present day story is no more than a two. It's really a shame to end an interesting series with this secondary story supposedly about the author herself. Stick with The Barbarian part of the book and you'll enjoy it as much as the rest of the series.


  5. Night Owl Romance Reviews

    I found "The Barbarian" it be an enjoyable read. Apart, the characters are hard to relate too and hard to warm up too. Once they're together though, Lady Amias and Stryker Bloodaxe are truly likeable characters. Amias's and Stryker's personalities mesh so well together that once the characters meet, they become personable, and I found myself liking their harsh attitudes.

    Fox keeps this book clipping right along, and it is a short and to the point romance. This is the sixth book in Fox's Conquerors series, and if you, like myself, haven't read the first five, you will still easily be able to read "The Barbarian." This is a book all its own.
    I liked the marriage of convenience story line. Amias's maid, Villette, ads some light comic relief and I found myself laughing at her antics. I would have liked this story more, if it hadn't felt so rushed. The characters didn't have any challenges to test their beliefs in each other, and Fox seemed to be leading up to a conflict that never happened. The climax is hard to find and uneventful. The biggest problem I had was the beginning and ending with the strange, unpleasant author in the twenty-first century. I thought the modern day story line unnecessary and wished Fox had just written more about Amias and Stryker. All in all, I found the majority of this book to be a very pleasant read.

    Lady Amias has been rejected by many suitors because of her heated temper and cold demeanor. Stryker Bloodaxe could be her last chance to escape spinsterhood, or even worse. Only Stryker isn't at all what Amias had been expecting. His manor is located in the isolated moors, and his manners are lacking in refinement and civility. Stryker doesn't want a wife, but he needs money, and he's desperate enough to marry Amias, even with her reputation, for her pride purse. The two make a decision to marry for convenience, but will love find a way into their marriage, or will their quick tempers keep them from finding happiness?
