ISBN 10:


Bastard daughter to the king, Rosamunde was raised in a convent and wholly prepared to take the veil... until the good King Henry showed up with the reluctant husband in tow for her. Suddenly, she found herself promising to love, honor, and obey Aric...
But Rosamunde's eduction had not covered a wedding night, and the stables were a poor example for an untried girl. Would Aric bite her neck like the animals did their mates? The virile warrior seemed capable of such animal passion, but his eyes promised something sweeter. And Rosamunde soon learned that while she may have trouble with obeying him, it would not be hard to love her new husband forever.
Always was originally published on July 2000.

Excerpt for
Lynsay's newest book proves she is a writer to watch. When I am reading anything by Lynsay, I am always smiling or laughing out loud!! So many times when someone tries the light touch with historical, their heroine comes out like an idiot. Lynsay deftly walks that fine line between jest and joke, with intelligent resourceful characters that often do silly things - but for good reasons!! Most especially, her books are never contrived. In Always, her Rosamunde is a gently raised fartherless daughter of King Henry, and just before his death he arranges a marriage for her to Alric. He is coming off a bad engagement and has little trust for women, but sees no choice in the forced marriage. While Rosamunde is not totally against the idea of a husband, she brings a vast lacking in knowledge to the marriage bed due to the concepts instilled in her by the nuns . Rosemunde is an adorable, charming, witty character and one you will long remember. I read a lot, so often books tend to blur together. Years from now I will think of Rosamunde and remember her well!! Pick up Lynsay Sands and you are guaranteed a good time!! By Debra MacGillivray on Amazon. The relationship between Rosamunde and Aric is a little tension filled at first. Aric was betrayed by his last love, so he has trouble trusting women and keeping her wedding vow promise to obey her husband becomes more and more difficult for Rosamunde. What she was told to expect in the marital bed by one of the nuns from the convent.. had me laughing so hard tears were streaming down my face. The connection these two shared was always there, but as they spend more time together it becomes a beautiful bond. This story has lots of humor, which is always a plus for me. I found myself quickly invested in this story and I turned the last page with a smile on my face. I am a sucker for a good happily ever after and it the ending was perfect! I gave Always 5 STARS! If you are looking for a heartwarming story with humor, love and some heat pick up Always by Lynsay Sands, she never disappoints! Save Your Money For Books review at Goodreads. From the laugh-out-loud moments right from the start to the tender moments between Aric and Rosamunde I was completely captivated. I really didn’t know what to expect since I’ve only read Lynsay Sand’s Argeneau series, but goodness was I pleasantly surprised! The opening scene between Aric and Robert, then King Henry, Aric and Robert, had me so engaged with these characters that I readily knew that Always was going to be an entertaining read, if not added as one of my favorites.
