The same rebellion that left Clarence of Summerbourne dead also left his castle and his daughter, Claire, forfeit to the king's champion. Renald de Lisle arrives at the castle gates as a warrior, takes possession of Claire like a conqueror, and sets her heart racing as her lover. Amid moonlight and velvet, she becomes his bride; atop tangled bedclothes she discovers passion. Then she learns Renald's terrible secret-and vows revenge against this man she had wed, this man she loves with all her he ...more

This one put me off of Jo Beverly.
Jo Beverly builds a medieval romance in Lord of Midnight set on the premise that a loving daughter must marry her father's killer. Will love win over these over whelming odds? Renald de Lisle is King Henry I champion. Renald is chosen to fight against Claire's father who has supported a losing cause against Henry I and in favor of his older brother Robert. Claire's father believes that Henry is responsible for the death of King William II, who died in a hunting

Partendo dal presupposto che i romance medioevali li digerisco poco, mi è piaciuto più di altri.
La storia è interessante, ben scritta, e sicuramente la Beverley ti fa immergere con maestria nel medioevo, così come nella vita di quei tempi, ma continuo a rimanere spaesata alle prese con l'ambientazione medioevale. Sarà forse perchè ho letto troppi romanzi ambientati nel 1800, ma rimango sempre un po' disorientata di fronte ai costumi, alle usanze, ai linguaggi tipici del medioevo, e non riesco ma
Enjoyable medieval romance. I disliked the heroine for the beginning of the book, but liked her once she decided to wed Renald and make a go of it. I liked the hero all the way through, despite virtually no POVs. Overall, I cannot rate higher than 3 stars, but I saw enough potential that would read another Beverley medieval from this series. This particular story had a difficult barrier to overcome, one that was just as difficult for the reader as for the heroine. (No spoilers!)

a very enjoyable read
I thought the dialogue and writing skill were quite impressive, however the fact that the hero killed the heroine's father, was not something I could ever view beyond. It was not to my liking, and I could hardly view the hero as anything more than the man that killed her father. I don't consider it as murder, it was an honorable fight and whatnot...but the fact that the hero took on this pristine characterization, despite the killing, was just too much to find plausible. He simply was not redeem ...more
Clearly not a favorite medieval romance - the characters were insipid and flatly drawn, and I really didn't care one whit if our hero and heroine got it on. And the book started with a sword through the chest and ended with a beheading. Not that this is necessarily bad, as I am quite okay with violence, but it seemed as if the author herself didn't really seem to care for her main characters either. Pass on this.

I love this story from Jo Beverley. The hero appreciates the character and talents of the heroin. He is a favorite kight of the king. The castle is his reward and she is one of spoils of war. The hero attempts to woo her but she learns of his part in murdering her gentle father. Beverley allows us to slowly understand the hearts and mind of both. I love stories of redemption and this one is on my eeper shelf.

Again, Jo Beverly puts us in the middle ages and shows what little choice a woman really had in life back then. Eventhough the heroine is very idealistic, the choices she had to make could have been real! I also enjoyed the insight into the guilt and innocense of the period. If you like history and romance and a good story, read this.

I LOVE Jo Beverly books! She has a way of writing that just sucks the reader in and I dare you to try and put her books down once you start them! This was the first of her books I read. She has become an addiction of mine.

King Henry, you should be ashamed of yourself. So should I, for forgiving the hero (view spoiler) and for wanting him to have an HEA.

L'inizio è interessante ma poi la protagonista si rivela una cretina ipocrita,e la trama diventa noiosa,non succede niente...un romanzo insipido e scontato
