When her abusive father sells her off to a man she's heard has horns and practices the Dark Arts, our heroine is understandably scared out of her wits but is also a bit relieved to escape her sire's tortures. Instead of finding the Devil, she finds a wounded, proud and wonderful man, a man who needs her love to become whole again - her soulmate. Set in medieval times, THIS IS ALL I ASK is a beautiful and emotionally rewarding love story for those who enjoy a believable tale about the magical healing powers of love. Kurland infuses her writing with a tender and often times humorous touch. Though the story lacks an explicit love scene (my only complaint!) it packs a powerful emotional punch and should not be missed for fans of well written medieval tales. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it again!
