3.5 stars I had mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I thought the author did a great job of giving it a real setting. There is no mistaking that this book is not only a medieval, but that it is set in England shortly after the Conquest. The romance sits nicely front and center, but the backstory of the Normans establishing their rule over the Saxons after having won at Hastings runs continuously through the story such that the romance and the rest of the story are inseparable.

And th
Émeraude in portugais! sorry u_u

Primeiro livro da excelente série Os cavaleiros da Bretanha, "The Conqueror's Lady", conta a história de Lorde Giles o bastardo bretão agraciado com terras e um título, além de uma noiva.
Já tive a oportunidade de ler os três livros da série, mas fiz um caminho inverso nessa ordem: 2,3 e 1. Sendo que o meu personagem preferido encontra-se no livro 3 (Soren <3), mas na minha opinião o melhor livro é o número 1, a história de Giles é muito bem trabalhada e d
Estou adorando essa autora! Ela escreve sobre uma idade média real, e não aquela aguinha com açúcar idealizada, com cavaleiros em armaduras reluzentes e moçoilas ingênuas trancadas na torre. Digamos que aqui o buraco é mais embaixo...

A historia se passa na época da conquista da Inglaterra por William, o Conquistador e da carnificina que se seguiu.
Giles é um filho bastardo, que junto com outros dois amigos, também bastardos, recebem de William feudos para defender. E Giles chega com a missão de
Beautiful cover has the promise of a great book, but it was anything but. By-the-numbers and uninvolving. The author could have benefited from a strict editor, as Brisbin seems infatuated with the phrase "once more" and the word "more" in general. The dialogue is stiff and Medieval 101, at times sounding drawn out to increase word count. The overall quality was run of the mill fanfiction with a vast share of the book concerned with groin-tightening and wet lady parts at the expense of any real c ...more
I really wanted to like this book, but it just did not deliver. I was really annoyed with the heroine, Fayth. She behaved in ways that I found unintelligent and lacking common sense. For example, she still refers to Edmond as one of her "dearest friends" near the end of the book and he had certainly proven himself to not be a friend at all. She made other decisions to withhold information from Giles that just didn't make any sense.

But what really killed the book for me was the fact that the read
Despite his illigetimate birth, Giles Fitzhenry fought with William the Conqueror and was rewarded with the lands of the Baron of Taerford, who died in the battle. Now Giles must marry the Baron's daughter Lady Fayth to unite his new lands.

Read for the romance writer's awards. I really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would.

This is my first introduction to this author and I found this a fun and compelling read.

This was more or less a solid read but there quite some things which did nothing for me.

I cared for Giles and could understand him and his motives. he was very honorable and honest but sometimes I wanted to kick him, as he let Fayth off the hook too easily.
Fayth could have been a great character but she lost some of my respect with her actions and although she tried to do her best in the end, I admire Giles for reacting as he had.

all in all, a good but not perfect read
This light, fun romance novel flows nicely and entertains thanks to Brisbin's trademark perspective shifting and clear, intelligent writing. Unfortunately, the heroine didn't appeal the way hers usually do, and the relationship between the two lacked an emotional heat that left the steamy scenes falling flat. Though not my favorite, since it's Brisbin, it's still good.
Ok... at first I was thinking that this book would get a solid 3 star from me.... but not by the end. There was too much "blah blah blah" Another reviewer described it as: "...Medival 101 to bring up the word count..." Pretty much spot on. If the two leads weren't having sex, then they were talking about sex/thinking about sex, or..... medival 101.... There just really wasn't a good enough story to suck me in on. Yeah, the basic romance story was there, I've read this type of story before.... an ...more
Can't think of anything I didn't enjoy about this. I liked the writing style and the setting was pretty cool. I never found myself annoyed with the characters, which is always a good thing. Will look for more of the author's books in the future.

Started out really great and had potential to be "not just another highland romance" but sadly toward the end, the author fell back on the tried and tired themes of trust issues and the female lead not listening to reason.
He's never been able to get over his illegitimate birth and she's forced to marry him. This was okay: characters and plot were okay but didn't suck me in as other Brisbin books have.
Having wanted to read this for a while, I was not disappointed. Well written I adored Giles. He is so noble and struggles so hard to find his feet as a suddenly elevated Lord.
Great historical. Really enjoy the differences between characters and how they came together and had their HEA.
