When the Normans conquered England, Deorwynn lost almost everything, including her family. Only one beloved brother survives. To rescue him, she must sacrifice her virginity in the enemy’s bed. She should be well prepared. After spending fifteen years in a grim convent, punished for every sinful thought, Deorwynn can withstand any torment at the hands of a merciless, Norman warrior.

But nothing, she soon learns, could prepare her for falling in love.

Guy Devaux is delighted with the amorous virgin waiting for him on his wedding night. There’s only one problem. The saucy-mouthed wench is not his bride. Oh yes, he knows the veiled woman in his bed is an imposter, but he’ll go along with the game. For now. The punishment for her deception will come later.

Just as soon as he conquers this foolish desire, this yearning to hear her say she loves him.

What a refreshing story! Deorwynn, the main character, is nothing like any other female heroine. She’s naughty, feisty, saucy, with a great sense of curiosity and daring. She’s not weak though she has a tender side that she tries to hide at all costs, mainly from the male protagonist, Guy Devaux.

Guy is a boy, turning into a man. He’s in his twenties and life for him is all about fun and taking as many women he can, until he meets Deorwynn in one of the most exciting scenes I have ever read. Guy falls head over heels for her but he resists his own feelings because he fears becoming an old respectable man, according to him “the hardest mission he’d ever undertaken”.

Ms. Fox has an incredible way with descriptions, making each sex scene unique and varied. The story has a quick pacing due to the clear attraction of the characters. I couldn’t stop reading, eager to know what Deorwynn would do to displease and arouse Guy.

The secondary characters, Thierry and Sybilia, are also worth mentioning. They're well drawn, complete and three dimensional and add meat to the plot.

The Virgin Proxy was a story that kept me hooked from beginning to end. I will definitely be looking for this author’s next work which happens to be all about Deorwynn’s innocent older brother, Wulf.
