Scotland, 1141. A Norman king's attempts to rule the Highland clans is making his favorite knight's job difficult, indeed--and that is before a woman of mystery lays siege to the warrior's heart...

SHE LIVES TO HEAL...
He's a giant of a man; what's more, he's the enemy. These truths should be enough to send Aislynn running far and fast from the wounded stranger in the woods.

Novel ini benar2 parodi dagelan dr novel "The Wolf and the Dove" The Wolf and the Dove (Gairah Sang Serigala) by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, dan mungkin sedikit-sedikit dari "Prisoner of My Desire" Prisoner of My Desire - Jerat Hasrat Sang Lady by Johanna Lindsey. Mengambil nama tokoh heroine sama persis dgn The Wolf, Aislynn yg profesinya jg sama, tabib penyembuh, Aislynn disini adalah Drama Queen sejati. Karakternya tidak konsisten, antara penyembuh, penggoda (bisa menjadi nymphomaniac layaknya kepiting yg berahi, berusaha terus mencapit "anu"nya Rhoenne), victim player (jelas2 kebodogannya bisa terhasut oleh taktik busuk si Haro ...more

This was my second read by Jackie Ivie. "A Knight Well Spent" has a good plot, but the pace was so rough, it spoiled my enjoyment of the plot. I always felt as though I didn't really understand either the characters or their actions.

Aislynn was a foundling and now spends her time practicing her healing craft whenever she can get away from the miller family who took her in. When she heals a massive knightly-looking fellow of a spear wound, he rewards her with a kiss. The next day she's abducted b

Saya berpikir ini adalah novel fantasi sejarah yang penuh peperangan atau paling tidak usaha satria untuk mendapatkan pujaan hatinya. Ternyata novel erotika...

Bagian awal, susah sekali untuk membayangkan cerita dari edisi terjemahan ini. Nah, karena ada karakter Harold jadi lumayan masuk plot cerita. Walaupun plot hole di mana-mana dan bertele-tele. Akan lebih menarik kalau novel ini dipangkas, sih. Kecuali sindiran Harold yang menarik itu.

Kedua protagonis terlalu mary sue. Ganti saja pemeran u

A Knight Well Spent by Jackie Ivie is a heart pounding, mouth watering, finger licking fantastic read for all Historical Romance lovers. If you miss this one you have missed one of the Yummiest books of the century.

Aislynn who also refers to herself as the "Lady of the Brook" is gifted with healing skills and dreams of things to come. Petite, long dark trusses, brown green eyes with ivory skin, she is a sight to behold. She does not feel so pretty though as she is lanky and doesn't have all the

Sir Rohenne is a Norman night who is trying to maintain his keep. He frequently leaves his bastard born, half-brother in charge while defending his demesne. Each time he returns he faces serfs who are angry at how tough his brother has been, angry fathers who demand recompense for their stolen daughters and a general mess of a home. He needs someone strong to handle his home but does not necessarily want a wife. He is convinced there is a curse on his family that causes the death of any woman wh ...more

Ah, a good, cliche, romance novel. Sometimes it's just what a girl needs. Don't argue, it's true. And this one certainly fits the bill.
It's historical - accurate enough to get clothing pieces named correctly, and enough of the dialect down to be believably antique - which I appreciate.
So let's get down to the nitty-gritty. Yes, it's formulaic. Yes, yes, I know, I know, it has a half naked man on the cover. But let's face it girls, we don't get that kind of romance very often in the real world, r

Udah baca banyak review yang bilang terjemahan buku ini amburadul, tapi aku tetep nekad meminjamnya. Dan hasilnya emang nyeseeeeeeel banget. Baru dapat 40an halaman udah gak sanggup nerusin lagi, saking bikin puyeng terjemahannya, bener-bener blank soal apa yang diomongin/diceritain buku ini. Kendala bahasa ini juga bikin susah memahami karakter Aislyn. Pas pertama nongol kayaknya dia galak bener, ngusir Rhoenne dari air terjunnya, tapi gak berapa lama karakternya udah berubah lagi. Duuuh...bing ...more

Versi Indonesia diterbitkan oleh Gramedia (kalo tidak salah sih...), itu sebabnya saya membelinya. Dalam pemikiran saya, buku2 terbitan GPU biasanya bagus. Sayangnya ini tidak termasuk.

Membaca buku ini kok jadi teringat buku2 "Harlequin" deh, hanya saja dengan plot yang lebih jauh kompleks. Bukannya saya mendeskreditkan buku2 Harlequin sih... tapiiii... bagaimana yaa?? Jauh dari harapan sih. Hehehe...

A Knight Well Spent by Jackie Ivie

Rhoenne Guy de Ramhurst wounded with a spear head still in his leg he stumbles into a forest glade in the highlands, Aislynn heals him.

In the end her magic touch heals more than his wounds.

It was hard to get the hang of the language, but I was successful. The most important thing was the sassiness of the characters. ESPECIALLY Sir Harold! I just couldn't get enough of him. Also loved how he argued continually with everyone in charge especially Lord Rhoenne. GREAT JOB!!! ;-D

Saya tergoda membaca novel ini karena judulnya dan ringkasan ceritanya yang rada-rada berlatar belakang sejarah. Ya I am fans of historical story ...and found myself dissappointed after reading this novel karena hm....too many romance than the history itself.

I'm not much of a romance reader, but I met the author at a local bookstore and she was so nice to chat with that I wound up buying this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's well written, and was pretty easy to escape into. I liked it.

It was just okay. The main characters where a little to dramatic for me but great writing and not a bad story line.
