Eu já havia lido esse livro duas vezes, quando foi editado pela Nova Cultural (, e estava morrendo de medo de ler de novo.
A história é ótima! Mas a trama cheia de intrigas, traições e maldades me dá um pouco de dor de barriga. O tal do João Sem Terra me dá engulhos. Oh homem mais insuportável! Por causa dele a Inglaterra teve de modificar suas leis e limitar os poderes dos reis. A ganancia e vilania do monarca não tinha tamanho.

I wasn't sure if I would like this one, but I really enjoyed it. I found the conflict of how the hero would accept another man's baby believable and not annoying as I feared it would be.

I don't think I've ever read a historical romance, especially a highlander book, that has the hero so weak physically in the beginning. (he has just been released from a long stay in a prison). Sure, heroes get sick or have injuries, but this guy was really in a weakened state. I wasn't sure if it would affect hi

Les deux frères Dumont, déchus de leur domaine aquitain en raison des mauvais choix politiques de leur père, sont proches de la mort : emprisonnés, à moitié morts de faim et de maladie, ils survivent tant bien que mal au fin fond d'une geôle. Aussi est-ce une chance inespérée pour l'aîné, Christian, comte de Langier, lorsque le roi Richard lui met un marché en main : il devra, sans tarder, et en dépit de son état de délabrement physique, rejoindre l'Anglet

Li este livro hoje e posso dizer que adorei e me prendeu da primeira à última palavra. Não estava à espera que fosse tão bom. Gostei de tudo, do romance, da intriga e do afecto.
Vou passar ao 2º volume da série.

There was something I just didn't like about this book. I think it was the fact that he believed he couldn't win, not really a hero's thinking.

I am in a Terri Brisbin phase and I think I will be spending my time hunting her backlist down.

I really like this one - it was well balanced.

I recently discovered Terri Brisbin and I'm really loving her medieval storylines and complex characters. Good stuff!
