Evensong is the sequel to The Black Earl. The hero, James, is the bastard brother of Richard, from TBE. This book left me frustrated for a good portion of the book.(view spoiler) ...more

Probably my favorite romance novel. It was one of the first I read too, in high school. I was enchanted by it. I can't say I've read one since that I've enjoyed as much.

On the other hand, romance novels tend to be fairly formulaic, so it's possible that it sticks out as better than the others because it was one of the first I read.
Camp, Candace - standalone

Although James was determined to improve his status by marrying well, he fell genuinely in love with Alyce, a traveling dancer. Although she returned his affection, she could not resist one last act of betrayal.

It was entertaining.

An entertaining read.
Though I would have preferred Aline our heroine and a dancer with a group of entertainers,who was masquerading as a Duke's niece to come clean about the whole thing earlier than she did. And the tortured hero to come to his senses earlier but for all that a well crafted story

Just what I was in the mood for -- a sexy little romp medieval times.

Nice, sweet story. It's your typical medieval romance. I enjoyed it for a quick read. Not one of those outstanding stories that will be memorable. Very common theme, but likeable hero and heroine. Just your average romance, good for those medieval fans. I'd put it closer to the bottom of my "to read" list.
