Synopsis
A legendary warrior. A mission to tame the rebellion of the Welsh Borderlands. A wild Welsh beauty. Teleri of the Woods was shunned by superstitious villagers, so for years she has lived her solitary life in a hidden cottage deep in the forest. But when she discovers a man in the wood, hanged and left for dead, she must try to save him with her tender healing skills. She does not know he is a knight charged by the King of England to establish a stronghold and build a castle. Sir Roger FitzAlan awakes without the ability to speak and to discover that none of his fabled diplomacy and skills of war will help him with his most immediate problem--a wild woman who has tied him to stakes in a small woodland cottage and is forcing vile brew down his throat. Teleri is his match in wit and will, but she opens his eyes to the wonder of a simple world he has never known. As Roger slowly heal, he fomulates his plan for catching his would-be-murderer, and he realizes something else: his real challenge won't be taming the borderlands but winning over his wild Welsh healer.  He understands that he cannot live in her world and she may not survive in his.  He teach her to trust him, even though he is the one person who threatens all she holds dear.
Amazon.com Review
Wales is a wild place in 1280. Sir Roger FitzAlan is there by order of the King, commanded to build a mighty walled castle to defend England's borders. But the site the King has chosen has a strange circle of massive blue stones and when Sir Roger and his men arrive, a beautiful young woman is praying within the ancient circle. Even more arresting, the young woman flees from Roger's men astride a sleek black Arab stallion stolen from Roger's best friend nearly five years before. Roger gives chase and before long, the black Arab and Roger's mount leave his men-at-arms far behind. When the woman disappears into a thick wood, Roger follows her alone and quickly loses her. But someone else is in the deep woods, and that someone is intent on killing Roger.

Teleri of the Woods is delighted to have lost her pursuer and it isn't until the following day, when she returns to search for her lost pouch, that she discovers Roger, barely alive, and struggles to rescue him. Roger awakens in her bed, cranky, furious, and too ill to leave. Forced to remain with the beautiful young woman, he slowly becomes aware of the world about him in a way he has never known. Despite Teleri's lack of gold and possessions, she is rich in knowledge and appreciation of life. As Teleri teaches Roger about her life, he's forced to confront his lust for her and his prior beliefs about love. But their time together in the magic woods must come to an end and when it does, what will Roger do about the forbidden love that once ruled him? How will Teleri cope with life beyond her enchanted woods? And how will they solve the dark mysteries that swirl around Roger and threaten both their lives? Filled with Barnett's trademark humor, wit, and wonderfully warm writing style, readers everywhere who have anxiously awaited Wild won't be disappointed. --Loise Faye Dyer
