Sooooooo. Last year I read The Unveiling, which I loved, but for some reason I didn't read the rest of the series right away. Last January I decided it was past time I remedy this, and devoured all four consecutive books one after the other. Me got busy with school then and me didn't have time to review them, but now that book 6 has just been released and I'm taking my sweet time savouring every page, I thought I could come back here and try to piece a little something of a review, because readi ...more

Sigh. I have no idea how she does it--but yet another fabulous read by Tamara Leigh.
When I first started reading historical romance, the intimate scenes were the best. So the more sex scenes = better. Now, I'm not so inclined. I grow weary of all of the sex, I want to see more love and character development. Not to say that all of the naughty scenes should be cut out but not one on every other page as some book are. After reading the first book in the series and enjoying it despite how vanilla (clean) it was, I didn't think that the author could get any cleaner.

Well she did an
I'm going to say from the outset- I don't like 'forced marriage' stories. They annoy me, they're usually historically innacurate, and its about the oldest cliche in the book.
So I was rather disappointed to see a mention of this at the beginning. The Wulfrith girls get into trouble when they run away from thier home to escape the King's command that one of them has to marry a neighbouring Lord whose family has long been thier enemy.

I did feel the characters' attitude towards command this was ve

Another great one by Tamara Leigh. Seriously, she is my new fave. I just can't seem to put her books down! I mean, I have to...since I have two boys at home. :) But, there wasn't much else besides reading this getting done during nap time today. Her writing is just so beautiful and I am completely pulled into the stories.

I usually skim "action" parts, but these stories are just so perfectly woven, that the action stays connected to the love story all throughout the book--which is exactly what I

The Yielding is the second book in the Age of Faith series by Tamara Leigh. So if you haven't read The Unveiling yet, I would highly recommend that you read it first. The Yielding is a wonderful continuation of the story of the Wulfrith family. While the first book focuses on Garr and Annyn, this second book focuses on his sisters, specifically Beatrix. I loved getting to know her character and by the end of the book I felt like I knew her. She was so stubborn and determined to defend herself at ...more

When it comes to medieval romance, Tamara Leigh is a delight! She successfully creates the setting of England in the 1100's with such vivid detail that I believe I'm there. This is the second book in her Age of Faith series, and I enjoyed it every bit as much as The Unveiling. In this book, Lady Beatrix Wulfrith is convent-bound and satisfied with her chosen vocation. But her family was deeply involved in the conflict between Stephen and Henry for the throne of England, and now that Henry has wo ...more

Well not my favorite Leigh book. I disliked the leading man so much I almost put it down. If I had, had anything better to do I might have. This was also not as clean as the other books by Leigh I have read and that was a disappointment. The main problem in the book has to do with an attempted rape and unfortunately that topic is brought up over and over. The leading man is also lets just say it, a blind jerk who treats woman like something for his amusement. Of course there is a reason why and ...more

This is another wonderful addition to the many great books by Leigh that I have read. Continuing with the Wulfrith family, we get a glimpse at more of its characters and dive into another wonderful story. The characters were great, being realistic and engaging. Beatrix and Michael's romance is fun and sweet and slow and enticing. I loved the way they both grew and changed together. Their interactions and romance was enthralling. The story was exciting and kept the whole thing wrapped nicely toge ...more

I felt like the book was dragging. We already knew how the story was going to progress and how it was going to end. That was not the problem. The problem was it took too long to get there. If this is your first Tamara Leigh book you'll like it. Personally I loved the first book in the series (The Unveiling). I don't think I have the patience to read Gaenor's story (the third book) though.

Another difficult to put down read from Tamara Leigh! I think my only disappointment was that the man on the cover didn't really match the descriptions of Michael (he should have gray eyes!!).

Book one was so, SO good I didn't think any could be as good. This second book was maybe even better and I will be starting book three as soon as I finish this post. . .

Great series

I like this series a lot.
Content: mostly clean. These books do talk about the men having slept with serving "wenches" in the past. But the men change and don't do that further.
Religious: Does have religious content as this is inspirational. This book is definitely preachy. Just talks about God helping the characters to change.
Overall story: Great characters, interesting story, and love the song. A plus.

I give this book three out of five stars for being an entertaining read with action and fight scenes reminiscent of the first book in the series. I enjoyed the non-typical protagonist of Beatrix and the hate to love plot she had with Michael. I kept comparing this book to the first. The romantic conflict and resolution was stronger in the first book, even though the plot in this one was just as engaging.

What I liked:
1) I like the plot, and how Beatrix was set on proving her innocence. This becam

Another fun addition to the Age of Faith series. I have come to really love Ms. Leigh's medieval stories, I can't seem to put them down.

Lady Beatrix Wulfrith is helping her sister run away from an unwanted marriage. They are separated when they are pursued by the King's men. Cornered and left alone with a Knight with intent to ravish her, she fights back and he ends up dying. She is soon captured and her attackers brother, Michael D'Arci, wants her tried for murder.

This is book 2 in the Age of Faith series about the Wulfrith family during the Medieval times. It takes place 4 years after book 1, The Unveiling. This can be read as a stand-alone but book 1 shows the political pressure that the Wulfrith family endures under King Henry and why the Wulfriths and Lavonnes are at odds with each other; both themes carry over into this book. Beatrix is a strong, devout woman whose desire is to join the convent. She helps her sister, Gaenor, escape marriage to Christ ...more

All in all, I thought this was another great read. Unlike some of the other reviews, I thought the hero was very likable. Yes, his swearing was tiresome, but that was the point. It got to the heroine, too. If there was one thing I might have changed, it would be to play up his role as a physician. Despite the numerous wounds he healed throughout the course of the story, he still came across as more of a warrior. Then again, I like the studious type, and maybe fans of medieval romance don't go fo ...more

She is attended by a physician and then she is able to get away. She hides out, but is found.

I really enjoyed this book. It is the second one. I can't wait to read the third!
I have officially become a fan of Tamara Leigh! I thought the first book, The Unveiling, was good, but The Yielding is even better. Beatrix Wulfrith has a beautiful, faith-filled, courageous spirit. Accused of murder, she stands up for the truth even when it could condemn her. Michael D'Arci is embittered by his own past mistakes and over his brother's death. Though he has gifts of healing he rarely feels compassion and his faith in God has long faded. He longs to see Beatrix suffer for the crim ...more

Tamara Leigh is my new favorite author. I can't recommend her books in this series enough. This is a series but each book stands on its own and you're not left hanging and must buy the next to see what happens. These are full-length books rewarding you with a nice long read that isn't filled with a lot of filler fluff and nonsense. It's a book that's appropriate for all ages and has a nice Christian undertone that is encouraging without being preachy, cliche, or even holier than thou-- rather it ...more

full of unnecessary angst, far too far-fetched, ridiculously historically inaccurate, way too preachy

Unfortunately the only interesting book was the first in the series (despite the ending where the heroine made a spectacle of her herself for no logical reason).

The other books in the series are full of unnecessary angst, far too far-fetched, ridiculously historically inaccurate, way too preachy (I don't mind Christian romance but not preachy), melodramatic and silly.

I got bored and quit reading

I devoured The Yielding in about 24 hours! I couldn't put it down. The sequel to Tamara Leigh's The Unveiling, The Yielding picked up with our previous hero's sister. This book is filled with romantic tension, action, and our heroine's desire to do what's right in the midst of her own physical suffering. The hero in this story is not such a nice guy...he has a dark side and he does not like our heroine in the beginning of the novel. In fact, they are enemies. The resolution is more than satisfyi ...more

If you like reading the era of Knights and Lady's and enjoy a good read I recommend The Yielding. The main characters were so well rounded, their banter kept me entertained and how their love blossomed out of tragedy and hate was so sweet. It was also nice that the first book characters intertwined, I really fell in love with them in the first book.
This is the second book in the series and enjoyed as much as the first. I look forward to reading all the books in the series.

Second book in the Age of Faith series. Set in medieval England, my most favorite time period, this book follows Beatrix Wulfrith, sister to the fierce Garr Wulfrith and Michael D'Arci, physician to the loathed Lavonnes.
When Beatrix has the chance to allow Michael to die, does she take that chance? When Michael would soon see her dead?
Will they allow faith in God to overtake their own jealousies, murderous tendencies?
Read it and find out. You won't be sorry.
