      The good:- The characters are attractive and believably fleshed-out. Geraint especially, he is a darling.- The ambiance feels authentic and true to the period.- Same about the language, it's not too faux old-fashioned as to be tiresome or hard to understand.- The plot also is believable, as it does sound like something people of the time could've resorted to doing given the restrictions imposed on women in the era. That this was inspired by a real case, as the author explains at the end, makes i [...]

      So I snagged this one at (shameless plug) 2nd and Charles, my new favorite used book store, because the word "Knight" grabbed my attention. I do love medieval stories. The premise: Johanna FitzHenry is married to a man who beats her. When her father has a stroke (they didn't call it that back then but you'll recognize the symptoms), her mum can finally call her home. And hubby lets her go, cuz he's still waiting on a big chunk of her dowry and he expects her to make sure daddy coughs up before h [...]

      I was about two-thirds of the way through this book, when I thought, "Wow! This is is like the "Gone of the Wind" of medieval tales". In actuality, we just have star-crossed lovers, an unlikely and reluctant pairing. With all of the twists, turns and drama it equals medieval soap opera. t always predictable and it takes a bit of reading in the beginning to become fully engaged in the characters and be drawn into the continuing saga.This book is not for everyone. Written by an Australian (therefo [...]

      this was one of the first romance novels I read when I was in high school and I remember falling so madly in love with Gervase de Lavel - to a point where I'd like to think he ruined my love life for a good while because I couldn't find a guy like him ha ha.I only remember good things about this book, so will read it again and let you know if it was as good as I remember!

      There were moments when this book went too slowly for me, but by the end, I was desperate to figure out the hero's secret! I was surprised.

      EnjoyableI found the language and the history quite captivating and enjoyed the book on the whole. For me it lost pace about three quarters of the way through and did border on a little too long and too slow. This was a shame as the romance was beautifully set up and the portrayal of women was excellent.

      Great historical romance with the emphasis on historical. I just love the medieval images Isolde Martyn is able to conjure with her wonderfully written characters, settings, and historical facts. I loved the use of real historical facts and figures woven with the fictional storyline. I haven't read this in quite awhile and forgot some of the really unique twists in the story and some plot devices that I don't think I've seen in any other "romance" books that I've read. It is well written and a v [...]

      I loved this book! it was castle time (come on , who hasn't thought about living in the medevil days?) and awesome! There are pretty scandolous love scenes, so if that bothers you, you may not want to read some parts but I loved this book! I intend to buy it. It made me cry at the end, not very end, but close to the end awesome.

      In audio This style of writing really appeals to me. I find myself drawn in by the characters and even though it is fiction, the knowledge that many of the characters actually lived and historical events did occur within the story makes it seem so real. The authors notes are also quite interesting especially on the languages spoken and research into acts of divorce during these times.
