A beautiful young woman Gytha is betrothed to one of three heirs – whichever one survives to claim his title and property also gets her.
Two heirs die in battle. She is left with the least inspiring of the the lot. However, one of the heirs, known as the “Red Devil” arrives just before her wedding. He has red hair and is heavily scarred from battle. She falls for him instantly despite everyone’s instance that he is too ugly to love. The Red Devil himself believes that the only way he can win a woman’s favor is by paying for it. He fatalistically believes the beautiful Gytha will cuckold him eventually.
It was entertaining enough. I liked Gytha. Despite having bridegrooms switched willy-nilly on her, she’s determined to make the best of it.
