Since her husband’s untimely passing, Lady Natalia has resigned herself to a quiet life as a young widow and perhaps one day as a nun. But her world is turned upside down when her adopted home is conquered and she is taken captive by Duke Stefan of Richtenholst. Almost from the moment he sets eyes on her, Stefan cannot imagine allowing Natalia to languish behind the walls of a convent, and he makes no secret of his plans to take her as his bride. The duke is more than ready to compel his new wife’s obedience when it is necessary, but he wants much more than that. Can Stefan ever truly make Natalia his own, claiming her heart as fully as he has claimed her body, or will she forever see herself as no more than the spoils of war? Publisher’s Note: The Widow Is Mine contains spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
