Unlike this author book Stormfire, this book does not have a hero who cheats, beat or abuse the heroine. Its been ages since I read this so the plot is mostly vague to me now, but I thought I would mention this here for the people looking for some info about this book. When I read this, I thought the story refreshingly new and unusual like most of her books. I didn't find myself being bored by the plot or the characters.


There is a very detailed and dragged out scene in this book where
*sigh* DNF @ page 89. It was just a hot mess. Great Big Terrible Misunderstandings are not my cuppa and this one started with a doozy. Our medieval heroine meets up with her betrothed before her arranged marriage. He pretends he is her fiance's bastard half bro. She pretends she is betrothed to another. They have a one night stand during which they both fall in luuuurrrvvve. Whatever.

The next day, the bride to be gallops to the castle where her impending marriage is to take place. She meets her

Not Monson’s Usual

Let me begin by saying I am a fan of Monson’s romances. To her others I’ve read, I gave 5 stars. STORMFIRE is on my “top 20” list. That said, this one is a bit hard to review and even harder to slog through. I’m giving it 4 stars because it was ok at the outset, but I could not finish and in fairness to the author, I could not rate it lower.

There was so much back and forth with the hero and heroine, so much of them missing each other in communication, that it fairly wore me ou

3.5 *
The first part maybe better but all in all a very passionate and entertaining reading. Memorable protagonists as always.
Viva Monson!!!

Hmmm. I don't know how to review this book. I knew going in that it would be much more "romantic" so to speak than Stormfire. There is no rape or abuse by the hero. And I loved the hero. Alexandre was everything a romance novel hero should be - tough, deliciously hot, and brave. The heroine was the aspect that I didn't like so much. She went against the wishes of Alexandre so many times that I myself felt like strangling her. I think her willfulness (to the point of stupidity) deserved the abuse ...more

It's a hit n' miss with these old bodice rippers. I skimmed through 70% of it. DNF as a result.

I'd suggest reading this first before going into Stormfire, not the other way around.

Could have skipped this one. Extra flowery. Drawn out. She mucks things up over & over being dumb-strong. M i s s conceptions.

Born Judith Christin Clevinger, the author gained a love for romantic adventure tales during her childhood in a grim West Virgina mining town. Her career as a writer was jumpstarted by her self-identification with the character of Joan Wilder in the movie "Romancing the Stone." Soon afterward, her debut novel "Stormfire" was published, and Monson became well-known in the genre for her extreme stor ...more
