This one should be retitled My Cherished Enemy: Emotional Abuse of Loved Ones in Medieval Times. A full 3/4 of the novel our hero and heroine spent reviling each other with all sorts of dastardly names and accusations - how does love grow from such hatred? Regardless, it was a fun read for me (not that I condone bad behavior) and I'll continue to read more from this author.
May have slight spoilers.

My Cherished Enemy by Samantha James introduces us to Kathryn of Ashbury and Guy de Marche, Earl of Sedgewick.

Guy has returned after three years from the Holy Lands after having been on the Crusade and captured. In the dungeon that is were he learned of the birth of his son, and the death of his wife. He vows to have revenge of the man who raided his lands while he was away; Richard of Ashbury. Without wasting time, Guy quickly sets about retaking his lands and then goin
Also known as One Thousand and One Big Misunderstandings: The Tale of Two Lovers Who Would Have Solved Their Every Problem If They Had But Sat Down and Talked Once. Still, I enjoyed it. I recommend it for anyone looking for a typical angsty read that's not to be taken too seriously.
This book followed a well traveled path for romance novels. A fiery love-hate relationship between a dominate male and a feisty female. I found myself fairly easily distracted from the book - especially after the first half or so. Most of it was fairly predictable, and the last 25% was that annoying theme writers over-use (I love him, but I refuse to tell him. Oh, I so wish he could only love me. I love her, but I'll go to the devil before I admit it to her... etc.).

Also, I would like to note th
Ok, this was very difficult to read. The emotional roller coaster the story drags you through is just plain tiring! The book is fine but the endless self-talk that leads to numerous misunderstandings on both parties was just too much! I was literally exhausted by the time I finished it. Literally exhausted!!

What a fight of wills. I must say I am glad to be born in this era for women owning their own and not being barter or cast aside at a father's, king's or Husband's whim
A very enjoyable book.
Set in Medieval England around the year 1152. This has the love-hate relationship between the hero and heroine. I didn't care too much for the characters. Hero was a major jerk. I can't see giving it more than 3 stars.
5++ stars!!...definitely one of my favs. now;)
really liked the plotline and character depth portrayed in the book.

Overall a great, awesome read;)
another good book by this author! Great story line with strong willed characters!
so much angst, i became frustrated frequently but read straight through beginning to end.

Growing up in Joliet, Illinois, Samantha James had many childhood aspirations--being a writer was never one of them. When she was ten, she was certain she was destined to be an astronomer. That soon changed (happened a lot during those pre-teen years!) when she decided archaeology was in her future. Detective work was her next goal, thanks to the Trixie Belden mysteries she was reading, and before ...more
