it was ok
bookshelves: romance-historical

This is a poor sequel to the historical romance novel Lion's Bride. It's been a while since I read Lion's Bride, but I remember it being rich with historical detail--the first book I read that included the Knights Templar--and character development. The Treasure reads just like Johansen's contemporary suspense books...chapter after chapter of clipped dialogue. She can get by with that style in contemporary books, but that is not the way to write historical books, particularly if you're going for romance.
