    Weeeeeell, this is a fabulous novel ! There are quite a few deeper layers in this story and I found it very interesting. Wulf was taken prisoner by the Normans at a young age and only just released after 15 years. As such, he is a virgin. Emma was sent by the king to be his bride. She was married before and loved her husband but he died. She is therefore experienced in the bedroom. He taught her how to please him and as a dutiful wife, Emma complied. Wulf 'the barbarian' Saxon might not be refined in manner or speech but he is the only one who has ever cared what Emma wants and needs and cares enough to provide her with these things. A really lovely story with a very endearing hero. Oh, and the wedding night was soooooo not what I was expecting!!

    Originally posted at: Fox does it again! Having recently read “The Virgin Proxy” I was eagerly awaiting the story of Deorwynn’s brother, Wulf. The Craftsman is a superb read that stands alone in the Conqueror series. Ms. Fox is a master craftswoman when it comes to descriptions. The tale begins with a vivid depiction of Raedwulf working in his shed, awaiting the dreaded arrival of his bride to be. Soon she arrives and confusion ensues. I never thought it possible, but I felt sorry for poor 29-year-old virgin, Wulf. My heart went out to him and I was more than willing to teach him a few things myself. However, he soon learns to take command and becomes a bit too primitive and rough for my taste. Emma on the other hand was surprising. I enjoyed seeing her transformation from a contained, proper, and quiet maiden to a lusty wench. Oh, that wild thunderstorm! I never knew rain could be so arousing. The only sin that The Crasftman commits is that at times it can come off as more just pure erotica than erotic romance. Ms. Fox draws picture after picture of lustful encounters: from public masturbation to voyeurism (from both a male and female point of view) to male on male, trios, anal play with a specially crafted toy, anal sex… But, love does surge between the characters. It is a sweet love that appears little by little in the small little things and ends happily. One of the things I particularly loved in this book was the reappearance of Thierry, a character which I already liked from before and which I was glad to get a little more insight about. I’m hoping that Ms. Fox gives him a tale of his own. He definitely deserves it! The Craftsman by Georgia Fox is a great, very vivid, very exciting read, recommended for any hot night.

    Georgia Fox has written one of the hottest novella's I have read in awhile. This story has no paranormal elements, it's a love story.It fits the historical period and attitudes. Wulf is a simple man and former Saxon slave/hostage. The King liked him and gave him his freedom with the added bonus of an arranged marriage that he doesn't want. The Bride, a Norman named Emma is a widow who understands all she can offer is duty not love. Both characters come to the marriage with the wrong attitude but soon the sparks fly. There is every manner of naughty goings-on in that bedchamber and a few other places.I loved this couple and the way they communicated. I laughed out loud many times and almost blushed a few times too. Wulf was so rough around the edges that I cringed more than once when he bluntly spoke his mind. He had no edit button on his words. Emma was no wilting flower and was full of unexpected depth. Wulf had been a virgin that quickly discovered that the sex thing offered opportunities for more than fulfilling a husbandly duty. Oh yeah, he got bit hard by the love bug.Erotica fans will enjoy everything about this story. It's not very expensive in ebook format. I will read more of Ms. Fox for certain.

    Surprising read. I was not comfortable with some parts of this story and that affected my overall enjoyment.

    Phew, if you're looking for a hawt - and I mean HAWT ! - little number, this one's for you. I didn't expect the wedding night to proceeed in this direction, lol ! I tagged it "menage", but let's just say it ranks from 2 to 5 partners. There's M/M among other things. And Wulf's unfiltered manner of speech is funny.If you think it's cold outside and want to warm up, The craftsman is perfect !

    Taken prisoner at age 14 by the armies of William the Conqueror, Raedwulf of Wexford had spent over half his life in captivity. Now, through the assistance of his sister and her new husband, Guy Devaux, Raedwulf is freed with the caveat that he would wed a Norman bride three days after arriving home. Wulf (as he was now called) was really an artisan who loved working with wood. He wasn't interested in political gain or rebelling against the Normans who now held power in England. He just wanted to be free to pursue his craft, enjoy his freedom, and get on with a quiet life. Yet when his bride arrived--a widow whose appearance surprisingly captured his attention and interest, Wulf began to realize that there were some pleasures to be had that had long been denied him. This third story in Ms Fox's trilogy furthers the stories of this brother and sister whose inheritance had been stolen by the conquering forces, whose future would be inevitably linked to the Norman interests in that part of England, and who somehow had to come to peace with their own hurts and old prejudices. It is a story of love that grows quietly and very erotically, of a man who "keeps his own counsel" and who is willing to be led into the pleasures of the marriage bed by a woman who knows more about it than he does. This story is well-written and beautifully researched, and is very much rooted in the politics and social norms of that period. There are also some surprises that, while they may seem to be created by the author, were far more common in that day than contemporary readers may realize. There are also tidbits of the continuing characters and how their lives are moving on while Wulf and Emma are finding their stride as a married couple. A very good novel and one that certainly captured my interest. As an Anglophile, this was right up my alley.

    4 Stars ~ The hero in this story is the brother of Deorwynn from The Virgin Proxy. Having been captured by the Normans when Wulf was 14, he'd never had the pleasure of making love to a woman. As so now 15 years after his release and return to his homeland, he's still a virgin. Emma is a widow and she's glad the King has arranged her marriage to Wulf. These two have tremendous chemistry. There's a scene at the beginning of the book where Emma's eating cherries and Wulf is just going nuts. I laughed out loud. Wulf, of course, is a quick study and soon he's eager to make up for all his lost time in the bedroom. I enjoyed visiting with Deorwynn and Guy again, and hope we have glimpse of Emma and Wulf too in future stories.

    3.5 stars.Taken prisoner by the Norman's at 14 Raedwulf has spent the last 15 years in captivity. His sister got the okay for his release but now he is forced to marry a Norman lady. Wulf is a Saxton, a virgin, a craftman, and quite. He doesn't want to be married but it is something he has to do.Emma is a widow and was on her way to a convent when the letter from the king arrived telling her she is to marry Raedwulf. They marry. Emma teaches Wulf a few things in pleasure and he in turns unlocks hiden desires in Emma. Sex in a storm with 2 helpful guards, a "honey spoon", and another hott night with a fellow friend. Those 100 or so pages went by quick. Overall I enjoyed it. Loved Emma's wild side and how open she was. Wulf was sweet and had that hidden Alpha male thing going on.

    What really engaged me in this book were the characters and how well the author set up the character chemistery. Emma is a woman of her time, very compliant. Meeting Wulf changes this for her and we get to watch her grow into a woman of passion. At first Wulf comes off as the stereo typical 'I Am Man' character but he really is much more complex than that. He is very dominate yet he has a bit of innocents about him due to being imprisoned at such a young age. Getting to see the world through their curiosity was fun and fascinating.

    Georgia Fox returns to the Conquerors series with the story of Raedwulf, a Saxon noble who's finally released by his Norman jailors after years of imprisonment. Surprisingly enough, Wulf is a pacifist and isn't intent on revenge like his sister in the second book. Rather, Wulf's major malfunction is his virginity, which is quickly taken care of when the Norman king gives him a Norman widow to 'settle' him.Things heat up quickly from there. Repeatedly. And often. In the rain. With multiple partners. Did I mention repeatedly?Great story, very well written. Georgia Fox is an author to follow if you enjoy historical erotica.

    Enter contest here: the plot at times took a back burner to the eroticism it was well written and steady enough that it never felt off point. I truly enjoyed everything about this story. If I could have asked for anything more it would have been for it to be longer. While it ended quit well, I was left with a few questions but It's done in such a way that the reader knows we haven't heard the last from these characters. I look forward to the next installment in this series.

    This book was seriously HAAAAAWWWWWTTTTT!!! My crystal ball says, "there are many cold showers in your future if you read this book", lol! Georgia Fox knows how to write her a** off when it comes to steamy scenes! Lookin to reignite your fire or to keep the blaze burning bright? This book will surely do it! The story and characters were easy to follow as well, seeing that the story is set in a different era.

    A good book that just missed being a great book!I purchased The Craftsman after reading a great review at Love Romance Passion. Whilst I wasnt disappointed by the read, it did leave me thinking Ms Fox missed the opportunity to make a good book into a great book. I felt the end was rushed and I would have liked more tension between the H/h. That said, it was a book I couldnt put down and I would read other work by the same author.

    Good read but somewhat predictable - except for the M/M sex scene. That's just not my thing and I'm not too fond of authors who "spring it on" readers. Or maybe I didn't read the small print close enough. I don't know. I knew there was menage sex but not M/M. This slightly deterred me from wanting to read the next book in the series. Yet I've already downloaded it to my Kindle so read it I will.
