Medieval Historical Romance book summary
Princess Elwytha wants revenge on the monster who murdered her brother. In a false exchange for peace, she offers herself in marriage to the enemy Prince. The plan? Kill the Prince’s battle-scarred Commander—the man who ended King Thor’s life with one filthy sword thrust through the back.
To her horror, the Commander agrees to take Elwytha as his bride. Worse, the wedding date will be sooner than expected. Not all is lost, however. Now she has more opportunity to be alone with him--and exact justice. But the deed is not so easy now. Fighting her innate sense of honor, she begins to see the ironclad integrity of the man behind the scars. And with this knowledge comes doubt. Did he slay her brother? What exactly is the new king's plan? Whom can she trust?
Elwytha must decide well, for more than her life is at stake. Soon she must betray either allegiance to her kingdom--or the man who is quickly claiming her heart.

"The Commander's Desire is a historical novel that reaches you deep down to your soul....Simply stated, I loved this book. No matter what genre you read or what heat level you enjoy, you will be enthralled with The Commander's Desire. You will feel their emotions, understand their sorrows and celebrate their victories. It definitely stays on my shelf." – Cindy K. Green, WRDF Reviews
"Ms. Green's portrayal of the Commander was refreshing. He was kind and caring without being wimpy, and it takes a talented author to bring that out in a character without losing the effect of being a strong alpha warrior while keeping the reader's interest at the same time. And not to leave out Elwytha--she's
a warrior princess. She gets out there and fights with the men.... THE
COMMANDER'S DESIRE is definitely a keeper--you won't want to stop reading
until you get to the end. And even then, the story is still exciting."
– Sheila Smith, Romance Reader at Heart
"Jennette Green's THE COMMANDER'S DESIRE is a quick paced romance read.... Jennette Green is an author whose career medieval romance readers should watch with interest." – Merri, Medieval Book Reviews
"I really enjoyed reading this tale. Elwytha's character was richly written. Her spunk, toughness, and her love for her people stood out. No matter what happened to her she cared about her people's welfare. The dialogue and scenes flowed perfectly. Anyone looking for a great historical romance would love to read
The Commander's Desire."

“An exciting and interesting historical, this book kept my attention and is one that I enjoyed reading. The murder and mayhem are very well written and are excellent “page-turner” aspects of the book. …[T]he building love and care that Elwytha has for her commander is palpable. This is one of my favorite parts of the book. It was, however, Elwytha’s sense of self that made the book most interesting to me. The royal machinations and subplots are great, but it is Elwytha’s strength that makes her empathetic to readers….While I love good “trashy romances”, The Commander's Desire, a more gentle romance, is one of my keepers.” – Anya, Coffee Time Romance
This sweet (rated PG-13) historical romance takes place in 715 A.D. in Galwyddel, which is modern day southern Scotland. The 6th to 8th centuries were a time when many small Briton kingdoms warred for preeminence in this area, although Northumbria, a giant power to the east, ruled them from afar. In this book, Elwytha's kingdom and the Commander's land have been at war for almost a century, and distrust of the enemy has been bred deep into her soul.
