I picked this one up at the dollar store, and I gotta say, it was well worth the dollar I paid for it. I'd never even heard of this author before, but I'll definitely keep my eye out for more by her on future shopping trips. The writing style was really good, vivid and somewhat poetic. The characters were unique, Clare being a writer and independent in the time period, and Jordan being sweet and loving and honorable, and still a kickass warrior. They meshed together very well, the frustration an ...more

OK, this was one of my first romance novels, found on the free swap shelf at the library where I was working at the time. Maybe there's some sentimentality there, but it's one I still enjoy rereading every so often. Like a lot of romance novels, it can be kinda purple-prosey.

The H is strong and honorable, pretty standar ...more

I was torn on whether to give this 2 or 3 stars. It had some good parts but not so great more so. It was too busy. There was so many names and places thrown out it could be confusing. Also two characters had two different names which was very confusing until I figured it out. I also pride myself on having pretty good vocabulary but there was at least 3 words on each page I had to look the meaning up on. I eventually gave up. Also the I want you can't have you, want you can't have you, got old. I ...more

This book had a 3.88 rating so obviously some people liked it but it was just not the book for me. I found it so boring. It was so hard for me to move forward in it (and it took forever for me to finish...I began it May 17, finished it June 9th! I just never had the desire to read it), it never caught my attention & the pace just seemed so slow. I was hoping it would get better if I could just get past the first few chapters but it never did. By the end I was barely skimming over the text fo ...more

I love this book!!! I went through all my books and donated most of them to a cancer center. I could not let go of this one! If you like a classic romance with danger around every corner, this is the book for you!!!

I loved how medieval England is shown here, along with the play of power and of course, love.
