This was my second read by Jackie Ivie. "A Knight Well Spent" has a good plot, but the pace was so rough, it spoiled my enjoyment of the plot. I always felt as though I didn't really understand either the characters or their actions.

Aislynn was a foundling and now spends her time practicing her healing craft whenever she can get away from the miller family who took her in. When she heals a massive knightly-looking fellow of a spear wound, he rewards her with a kiss. The next day she's abducted b

Sebuah kekalahan yang menjadi berkah, karena akibat dari luka yang dialami Rhoenne dalam perang ini lah yg menyebabk
A Knight Well Spent by Jackie Ivie is a heart pounding, mouth watering, finger licking fantastic read for all Historical Romance lovers. If you miss this one you have missed one of the Yummiest books of the century.

Aislynn who also refers to herself as the "Lady of the Brook" is gifted with healing skills and dreams of things to come. Petite, long dark trusses, brown green eyes with ivory skin, she is a sight to behold. She does not feel so pretty though as she is lanky and doesn't have all the
Ah, a good, cliche, romance novel. Sometimes it's just what a girl needs. Don't argue, it's true. And this one certainly fits the bill.
It's historical - accurate enough to get clothing pieces named correctly, and enough of the dialect down to be believably antique - which I appreciate.
So let's get down to the nitty-gritty. Yes, it's formulaic. Yes, yes, I know, I know, it has a half naked man on the cover. But let's face it girls, we don't get that kind of romance very often in the real world, r
I really, really really wanted to love this, but I just couldn't. The way people acted made little sense to me sometimes, and I know the H was hurt, but after what he did to the h, he should have to win some favor back. He didn't even really apologize and that pissed me off. Montvale was the best character in the book and he saved it for me to an extent. I just don't like it when women are doormats and men are douchebags.
The plot also saved it for me.

Versi Indonesia diterbitkan oleh Gramedia (kalo tidak salah sih...), itu sebabnya saya membelinya. Dalam pemikiran saya, buku2 terbitan GPU biasanya bagus. Sayangnya ini tidak termasuk.

Membaca buku ini kok jadi teringat buku2 "Harlequin" deh, hanya saja dengan plot yang lebih jauh kompleks. Bukannya saya mendeskreditkan buku2 Harlequin sih... tapiiii... bagaimana yaa?? Jauh dari harapan sih. Hehehe...

It was hard to get the hang of the language, but I was successful. The most important thing was the sassiness of the characters. ESPECIALLY Sir Harold! I just couldn't get enough of him. Also loved how he argued continually with everyone in charge especially Lord Rhoenne. GREAT JOB!!! ;-D
A Knight Well Spent by Jackie Ivie

Rhoenne Guy de Ramhurst wounded with a spear head still in his leg he stumbles into a forest glade in the highlands, Aislynn heals him.

In the end her magic touch heals more than his wounds.

Saya tergoda membaca novel ini karena judulnya dan ringkasan ceritanya yang rada-rada berlatar belakang sejarah. Ya I am fans of historical story ...and found myself dissappointed after reading this novel karena hm....too many romance than the history itself.
I'm not much of a romance reader, but I met the author at a local bookstore and she was so nice to chat with that I wound up buying this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's well written, and was pretty easy to escape into. I liked it.
sedikit aneh dengan tata bahasanya.
bingung dengan perpindahan setting-nya.
tapi ceritanya lumayaann.
Ntah mungkin terjemahan nya yang "jelek" jadi gak enjoy bacanya,capek ikutin jalan ceritanya...hiks...
Yenny toh
