I've given this a C for narration and a D for content at AudioGals.

I suppose I should have known what I was letting myself in for when I read the title and synopsis of Bold Angel:
“Saxon beauty Caryn of Ivesham longed to escape the chill gray cloisters of the convent to which she’d fled-but not in marriage to the towering, feared Raolfe de Gere, the Norman knight they called Ral the Relentless.”

It goes on to tell how the

This one was below the radar but turned out to be a pleasant surprise. There was lots of excitement and angsty moments. The hero made some horrible mistakes based on false premsises that hit hard. I actually cried during many of the scenes. The very end could have been fleshed out a bit more but overall, definitely one of my recent favorites.

Caryn has always longed to free of the cold surroundings....she years for freedom and the outdoors. But doesn't know if she could ever leave her sister, who suffered a form of brain damage and has finally managed to find peace after being rape
H and h have an MOC. He sleeps with his mistress during the early part of their marriage until consummation. Then, at a later point, H cheats on the h--because he ~can't handle his feelings~ or doesn't want to be controlled by them or some BS--with his previous mistress.

He also hits the h at one point.

He struck her such a blow that she reeled and slammed into the dirt. The salty taste of blood filled her mouth but Caryn welcomed it. She wished for its like and more, for in truth, she knew she de

Historical okumayı özlediğim için bir hevesle başladım..
Konuyu, anlatımı, karakterleri falan da çok beğendim.
Ama var bir eksiklik işte :(

Hikayeyi gerçekten sevdim. Kitabı alırken çok fazla kararsızlık yaşamıştım; okuduğum yorumlarda kimisi çok beğenmişti kimisi hiç beğenmemişti...Ben beğenenlerdenim. :)

Çoğu arkadaşımın tavsiyesine uyarak, hikayenin geçtiği dönemin koşullarının, yaşayış biçiminin ve düşünce yapısının bilincinde olarak başladım kitaba. Ama elbette bu, başta Ral olmak üzere, karakterlere çoğu yerde kızmamı engelleyemedi.Evet, Ral'in Caryn'e davranışlarına ve umursamazlıklarına çok kızdım, Ral'e lanetler okudum. Ama

Kitabı beğendim,güzel bir hikayeydi,bir çok yerde kitabı fırlatma isteğime rağmen yinede devam etmek yazarın kabiliyeti işte dedirtiyor :)Tarzı bana biraz Henleyi anımsattı tek farkı tarihle bağlantılı yazmamasıydı.Hop oturtup hop kaldırmasıysa kesinlikle aynıydı ,bir çok yerde acaba neler olacak diye heyecanlandım.

Yer yer erkek karakter çileden çıkarttı ama bayan karakterin intikamları okunmaya değer doğrusu.Kitabı okurken unutmamak gereken önemli bir detay var ortaçağda geçmesi,bazı şeyleri si
