Era uma batalha de poder. Ela devia render-se a ele... O forte, valente e honesto Giles Fitzhenry era um guerreiro que nunca tinha conseguido livrar-se da vergonha de ser um filho bastardo. Para salvar a sua gente e as suas terras, lady Fayth devia casar-se com aquele poderoso cavalheiro bretão contra a sua vontade. Ela desejava acima de tudo desfazer-se daquele esposo, ma ...more

Well...review in portugais! sorry u_u

Primeiro livro da excelente série Os cavaleiros da Bretanha, "The Conqueror's Lady", conta a história de Lorde Giles o bastardo bretão agraciado com terras e um título, além de uma noiva.
Já tive a oportunidade de ler os três livros da série, mas fiz um caminho inverso nessa ordem: 2,3 e 1. Sendo que o meu personagem preferido encontra-se no livro 3 (Soren <3), mas na minha opinião o melhor livro é o número 1, a história de Giles é muito bem trabalhada e d

3.5 stars I had mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I thought the author did a great job of giving it a real setting. There is no mistaking that this book is not only a medieval, but that it is set in England shortly after the Conquest. The romance sits nicely front and center, but the backstory of the Normans establishing their rule over the Saxons after having won at Hastings runs continuously through the story such that the romance and the rest of the story are inseparable.

Estou adorando essa autora! Ela escreve sobre uma idade média real, e não aquela aguinha com açúcar idealizada, com cavaleiros em armaduras reluzentes e moçoilas ingênuas trancadas na torre. Digamos que aqui o buraco é mais embaixo...

A historia se passa na época da conquista da Inglaterra por William, o Conquistador e da carnificina que se seguiu.
Giles é um filho bastardo, que junto com outros dois amigos, também bastardos, recebem de William feudos para defender. E Giles chega com a missão de

Beautiful cover has the promise of a great book, but it was anything but. By-the-numbers and uninvolving. The author could have benefited from a strict editor, as Brisbin seems infatuated with the phrase "once more" and the word "more" in general. The dialogue is stiff and Medieval 101, at times sounding drawn out to increase word count. The overall quality was run of the mill fanfiction with a vast share of the book concerned with groin-tightening and wet lady parts at the expense of any real c ...more

Despite his illigetimate birth, Giles Fitzhenry fought with William the Conqueror and was rewarded with the lands of the Baron of Taerford, who died in the battle. Now Giles must marry the Baron's daughter Lady Fayth to unite his new lands.

Read for the romance writer's awards. I really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would.

2.5 stars.
An okay book, not bad, not great. Just okay!
Diandra Fernandes
Sempre leio algum romance de época, as vezes acho uns ótimos, mas não foi dessa vez. Quero entender a necessidade de ter sempre um personagem bem burro na história, nesse caso Fayth está de parabéns. Muuuuito lesada. A história também não é das mais empolgantes, os confrontos por terras e títulos poderia ser melhor trabalhado. Ficar o livro todo atrás de um vilão e no final deixar ir embora é covardia.

Avis tiré de mon blog :

Lady Fayth de Taerford n'a pas le choix, si elle veut conserver sa vie et ses terres, elle devra épouser Giles Fitzhenry et le laisser prendre sa place.

Je ne m'étais pas aperçus quand j'ai fait la liste de mon challenge ABC, que j'avais choisi deux livres si proches. Ce roman et Le Maître de mon Cœur que j'ai chroniqué aussi, se déroulent la même année, au même endroit, dans les même circonstances et avec des personnages similaires.

Ok... at first I was thinking that this book would get a solid 3 star from me.... but not by the end. There was too much "blah blah blah" Another reviewer described it as: "...Medival 101 to bring up the word count..." Pretty much spot on. If the two leads weren't having sex, then they were talking about sex/thinking about sex, or..... medival 101.... There just really wasn't a good enough story to suck me in on. Yeah, the basic romance story was there, I've read this type of story before.... an ...more

This was more or less a solid read but there quite some things which did nothing for me.

I cared for Giles and could understand him and his motives. he was very honorable and honest but sometimes I wanted to kick him, as he let Fayth off the hook too easily.
Fayth could have been a great character but she lost some of my respect with her actions and although she tried to do her best in the end, I admire Giles for reacting as he had.

all in all, a good but not perfect read

This light, fun romance novel flows nicely and entertains thanks to Brisbin's trademark perspective shifting and clear, intelligent writing. Unfortunately, the heroine didn't appeal the way hers usually do, and the relationship between the two lacked an emotional heat that left the steamy scenes falling flat. Though not my favorite, since it's Brisbin, it's still good.

Great historical. Really enjoy the differences between characters and how they came together and had their HEA.
I loved that Giles see himself as a bastard and not worthy but willing to make every effort to see his marriage work.
I also like that lady fayth isn't a weeping week noble women but strong and know when topick her fights. Great end HEA.

Some thing I found half entertaining and bored out of my wits. The friend of the groom seemed more interested in the bride than the groom did not to mention how arrogant the groom seemed at how he seemed to reign over forigen lands and how he's illigitimate. not the best book I've read.

Can't think of anything I didn't enjoy about this. I liked the writing style and the setting was pretty cool. I never found myself annoyed with the characters, which is always a good thing. Will look for more of the author's books in the future.
SheLove2Read
Started out really great and had potential to be "not just another highland romance" but sadly toward the end, the author fell back on the tried and tired themes of trust issues and the female lead not listening to reason.

Having wanted to read this for a while, I was not disappointed. Well written I adored Giles. He is so noble and struggles so hard to find his feet as a suddenly elevated Lord.

He's never been able to get over his illegitimate birth and she's forced to marry him. This was okay: characters and plot were okay but didn't suck me in as other Brisbin books have.
