    Hi everyone!
    I need ur help. There´s a book or a series of books that i cant remember the name of. I read it maybe 10 years ago and dont know the author or anything like that. So, here's what I think Ii remember:
    There´s a boy/man that lives in a medieval world (in a castle?) and somehow he comes to a new world where he becomes a slave or a servant to a powerful woman (prinsess or queen?) If i remember correctly the men in this world has a lower status than the women.
    I'm not even sure if im mixing different books.. I remember something about the the servant/slave teaches the woman that he serves about love and in the end i think they got married(?) or something like that..
    I would rellay love to read these books agan if someone can help me remember!

    Actually there are many similar medieval romances like the one you seek.

    ... such as? Could you name titles? Even if that is not what @lynnlella is looking for, I'd be interested in what romances you're thinking of.

    I was thinking specifically in Her Warrior Slave by Michelle Willingham but there are others medieval-like romances that I have read like: Betrothal: Tales of Lady Guinevere By Mande Matthews, The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, How to Train Your Knight by Stella Marie Alden... Most of the Medieval romances are Scottish/Irish, when I was in Ireland I saw a lot of this kind of books.

    It reminds me of the Daughter of the Empire and the rest of the trilogy by Raymond Fiest.

    oh yes, Magician R.E.Feist, seems very similar to the Pug and Cattibrie story
    Pug is an orphan boy, on choosing day he gets made an apprentice wizard, he ends up being ordered to escort the princess Cattibrie on her riding day since her brothers aren't available. trolls attack, pug kills trolls and the princess falls for him.
    the men having a lower status doesn't fit though, even in daughter of the empire.

    Yes, I was thinking of Raymond Feist's 'Magician' because of the young boy in a castle scenario and the amount of time since you last read the books. I think it's going to be eithr a fluke or a miracle if you find what you're looking for with such little info. I think we all need a bit more info to go on if I'm honest :)
