Master of Desire (Brotherhood of the Sword/MacAllister #1)
A Dream of Desire Awakened . . .
Beautiful Lady Emily dreams of the rapture of love and the joys of marriage. The youngest daughter of an English lord at war, she is shaken by the arrival of a mysterious stranger to her father's castle. Could this breathtaking man be Emily's yearned-for lover? Indeed, Draven de Montague, Earl of Ravenswood, has come for Emily . . . but roma...more
To start, this was really insta-lovey. GAH! Insta-love is the worst, am I right? I didn't get why Draven and Emily were so enamored with one another after just a short period of time. Please, more relationship buildup next ...more
Oh how I enjoyed this one! Yes, it’s got the tried and true romance cliché of a brooding, tortured hero who doesn’t believe himself worthy of happiness or love fighting his intense lust for the spirited maiden who’s determined to convince him otherwise. But Master of Desire manages to standout splendidly with its endearing, unforgettable characters, witty dialogue, and the perfect mix of angst, humor, sweetness, and heat.
Draven is such a sigh-worthy hero. ...more
I loved everything about it: Draven (a tortured hero I just wanted to hold and never let go), Emily (a spunky heroine determined to win the heros heart), Simon (the most adorable second character Ive met) and, last but not least, the story (it made me laugh and it made me cry, what more could I ask for?)
I loved Draven! I thought he was an honourable hero who could park his shoes under my bed any time! His tortu ...more
It's a must read to those who loved Highlander and medieval story.
** SK, I love you but I love you more as Kinley MacGregor **
It was a good read but I want ...more
Maybe it is me being in a rather unromantic phase right now. I can't seem to feel the chemistry in any romances I have read recently. Dr ...more
Someone has been pillaging his lands and he suspects his neighbor, Hugh. The same thing is happening to Hugh and he suspects Draven. So they take their grievances to the king. His majesty decides to send Hugh’s daughter to live with Draven for a year. Th ...more
The basic set up is that Emily, the female protagonist, is forced to live with Draven (Yes, I know, the names scream 1990’s, but go with it) to stop the fighting between their two families. It’s a cliché, but Kinley Macgregor aka Sherrily ...more
Ahora sabiendo que se trata de una serie (me leí primero “Nacido en pecado”) ya voy rellenado huecos y creo que el comienzo de la misma es un poco flojo.
Enrique Plantagenet, rey de Inglaterra le concede a Draven de Montague, Conde de Ravenswood la custodia por un año de la hija de Hugh de Warwick, un escoc ...more
All Emily wants to do is find love and start a family, but overprotective Daddy won't let her out of the castle, or allow any suitable suitors inside, since his wife and two daughters died years ago while in the family way. Instead, Daddy has started a feud with his neighbor, the noble ...more
Mi gran problema con este libro tiene nombre y es EMILY. No lo dice de manera explícita, pero sentí que como personaje no aportaba nada en ningún lado. Una completa inútil que no hace nada de nada, salvo acosar a diestra y siniestra a Draven. No es señora de la casa, no es señora de sus habitaciones, no ha levantando un dedo en todo el libro y difícilmente hace algo. Cose, pero nunca se dice qué exact ...more
Едно нещо признах на Кениън/МакГрегър още при първата ни среща - умее да заплита страхотни завръзки. Тази книга не е изключение - като майсторка сватовница авторката събира двамата си герои и оттук нататък започва да плете тяхната история.
Не съм чела много любовни романи от този исторически период, и това допълнително провокира интереса ми. (Особено след като изградих в ума си преграда, която да спира в съзнанието ми въпросите относно хигиената ...more
Draven, Earl of Ravenswood has had an extraordinarily difficult childhood and carries the emotional and physical scars. He believes himself cursed and, with the exception of his brother Simon, does not allow anyone to get close to him.
When the King orders Draven to take in Emily, the daughter of hi ...more
Draven and Emily's father are enemies, and by decree from the king, Emily is to live under Draven's roof for in one year in order to stop the fighting between the two lords. Draven is not to touch her (in violence or lust). It is Draven's belief that he will have no problem keeping his hands to himself until he meets Emily!
Emily wants Draven, (in the biblical sense), from the first moment they meet. I love this twist because so ofte ...more
En realidad, no se sale del tópico: héroe atormentado pero bueno, heroína valiente, decidida y dispuesta a guiar su vida y conseguir aquello que quiere, que en este caso viene siendo al héroe.
Pero a pesar de no salirse de los tópicos está tan maravillosamente bien contado y con un increíble sentido del humor que hace que disf ...more
“Milord?” she asked Draven. “Know you how many Byzantines it takes to light a fire?” His look hovered between boredom and skepticism as he reached for his goblet. “I cannot imagine.” “Two,” she said simply. “One to start the fire and one to confuse the issue.”
“How many Norsemen does it take to light a fire?” “ ...more
O Rei ordenou: a filha de um na companhia do outro, para proteger de todo o mal, por um ano!
Quem ousasse desobedecer o Rei, seria enforcado, esquartejado, etc... hahahaha
Mas, ninguém imaginava que a Filha do Hugh, Emily, estaria obstinada a seduzir e se casar com Draven.
Este, porém não pode cair na tentação. Por um lado o rei o matará por isso, e por outro, tem a maldição dos condes de Ravenswood.
Mas Emily não está de brincadeira, diz em alto e bom som: Drav ...more
