It is always interesting to read a book about smart young woman. This book is great example of young women who have interests outside of the usual ones appropriate for young ladies and yet, they don’t let people’s opinions deter them. It is always wonderful to see a hero who not only accepts a woman’s brilliance but who encourages it and is proud of her for it.
Lady Theodora (Theo) Montgomery wasn’t necessarily a trouble-maker but she certainly was a free spirited blue stocking – a young woman w

Lady Theo made three very good friends when she attended a school to teach her everything a lady should know for polite society. They all loved archery, and Theo excelled at it. Now all of them are to have their first season; therefore, scandal is to be avoided at all costs.

The school that they love is in dire need of money for extensive repairs. They come up with a plan to get the needed money by using their archery skills and competing in an archery tournament. Will their plan lead to their o

Positivity. Such a big word, with a simple meaning that means so much. I am drawn to strong heroines. So many times, women are looked at as in need of a rescuer but Ms. McKnight has spotlighted the opposite with her Lady Archer's Creed series. Strength of character breeds strong friendships, fearless women and great storytelling. I can go on all day about Theodora and her band of courageous compadres but the greatest message of all within the pages of this novel is: There is no one mold for a pe ...more

A unique page turner! I am absolutely in love with the lady archers creed series. The story of lady Theo starts at her new school and brings the reader right into a new world of a young lady's experience of presenting talents in front of all the other ladies so they may be roomed with others similar to them.
Theo is a very intelligent, independent, and talented young lady who is set on waiting for marriage and duty. Theo calls on her former roommate and close friend Adeline and meets her brother

Although this is the first Christina McKnight book I have read, I have several in my TBR pile. I have read some Amanda Mariel (Christina's writing partner for this series) offerings and enjoyed them. Set in the Regency period, the storyline takes a different approach to the boy meets girl and they fall in love theme. Alistair Price is rather overbearing, however he is responsible for his eight brothers and sisters since their parents are unable to join them in London. His main attention is on Ad ...more

An entertaining read... Book One of the Lady Archer’s Creed series starts out in a most unusual way that will entertain the reader. This book involves four intelligent girls who meet at the School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality and become fast friends. I must admit this is the most unusual plot I have read in a while and it took me a moment to be fully present and enjoy the authors unique writing style.

Lady Theodora has two passions in her life, archery, a sport she enjoys with her three former school-friends and map making. Her brother unusually for the time, is supportive of her academic achievements, even going so far as to sponsor her in addressing gatherings at the British Museum. She has no intention of clandestinely taking part in an archery competition (regardless of the fact that the prize money would help with repairs at her beloved school) as the finals clash with her important meet ...more

I love historic romances. I love how Lady Theo will stick up for her friends. Lady Adeline older brother Alistair is so overprotective. Theo and Adeline met at school. They are both good at archery. Theo and Adeline enter a archery tournament to help fix up the school.

Alistair want to Lady Theo house looking for his sister. When he left Theo want to check on Adeline. Alistair followed Theo and competed against her.

I love Alistair and Theo together. I highly recommend this story.

Fantastic story, but.....

It became VERY difficult to read the farther I got into the book. You REALLY need a better proof-reader or type setter or something. The misspelled words or incorrect wording was so rampant in this book, as I said, it made it very difficult to read. That is the reason it only received 3 stars instead of the 5 I would have given it.

Lady Theodora Montgomery has a packed schedule before the start of her first London season. She and her friends are to compete in an archery tournament to win the funds needed to restore their beloved boarding school. She is also presenting her work on cartography before a crowd at the British Museum and meeting with a famous Italian mapmaker to discuss her ideas on identifying locations of future coastal flooding. Thankfully her older brother, the earl, is supportive of women striking out on th ...more

This story was so refreshing and I had a really hard time putting it down. I loved the strong female characters. Despite feeling like an outsider of the group, I really felt that Theo kept the group together and grounded. That was evident in the fact that she was willing to sacrifice her happiness for her family, friends and her love. Alistair was a true hero from the beginning. Although being viewed at times in a negative light, he really was a knight in shining armor and always seemed to be co ...more

Friendship, loyalty and honor above all!

Four young women become fast friends at Miss Emmeline’s School of Education and Decorum for Ladies of Outstanding Quality. This is not your typical schools for young ladies and Lady Theodora (Theo) is very grateful for that fact. Even at the tender age of 12 she appreciates the school and her family’s sacrifices to allow her to attend. She meets Miss Adeline Price, Lady Georgina and Lady Josephine and together they form the Lady’s Archer’s Creed. The women

Four friends formed a childhood bond through their school years that continues through their first season in London. Their mantra is friendship, loyalty and honor above all, but will their mantra carry them through the challenges of life into adulthood? Or will the challenges of adulthood leave their mantra behind as they face unforeseen obstacles?

*Thank you for the publishers for providing me with a digital copy via Netgalley. *

Although I loved the sound of this book, with it's almost female Robin Hood idea (without the whole outlaws side). However, this book didn't wow me at all, and I didn't feel any Robin Hood vibes when I sat down to read it.

I felt as though it was a pretty straight forward storyline with just the one slight twist in it. The main focus throughout the book has to have been the romance, which in itself was a

Theodora is a fun, sweet and romatic historical romance which I received a free copy of from Barclay and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Lady Theodora is a cunning, smart and independent girl who went to boarding school with her three roommates and friends. Her story is a first in the Lady Archer's Creed series. Each of them bumps against the norms and treatment of women during their time where it is against the "norm" for women to study anything scholarly. Even most women think that ...more

Christina McKnight is an Incomparable

This author knows exactly what she is doing when she writes a series about a group of four schoolfriends very different in nature but bound together by the common interest of a skill in archery. Theodora, the intelligent heroine of Book 1 of the Lady Archer's Creed series, is a lady it is easy to root for.

Alistair, the older brother of her friend Adeline? Not so much. At least, not in the beginning of the book. Yes, he's in a somewhat difficult situation wit

What a start to a sure to be addictive series! I stayed up to two in the morning reading the whole thing because I couldn't put it down. I loved having the little backstory at the start because it really helped with knowing the girl later on. When Theodora and Alistair meet you just know it's going to be an adventure with them. I loved all the archery and the girls' reason for sneaking around and competing is a great one even if they are putting themselves at risk. When Theodora was found out an ...more
