    Yay I love Medieval romances, and now that I ve gotten through most of Patricia Ryan s back list, I m happy to have found another author whose writing talents and historical knowledge I can appreciate I love this book and all of its characters, and it was a good introduction to the world of this series.I especially liked this heroine, because she was strong willed and intelligent, and yet still behaved in a manner that was realistic for her time period I knew I was going to like her early on Yay I love Medieval romances, and now that I ve gotten through most of Patricia Ryan s back list, I m happy to have found another author whose writing talents and historical knowledge I can appreciate I love this book and all of its characters, and it was a good introduction to the world of this series.I especially liked this heroine, because she was strong willed and intelligent, and yet still behaved in a manner that was realistic for her time period I knew I was going to like her early on in the story when she said thisI know nothing of being a wife, but have learned much about the running and maintenance of an estate It may be that you will find my manner too straightforward for your tastes, but, my Lord, it is just that my manner Would that I die before I give up that part of me This is a story about an arranged marriage b...

    This book was recommended by Mary from the group I spend most of my time in with Goodreads, the Romance Refugees forum I m so glad she did I enjoyed it a lot This book was first published in 1994, so it s far from new, and I m thinking 1994 was a pretty good year as so many books I ve loved just happened to have been published in that year It s so hard to find a good medieval romance, so many of them set in that period don t follow life as it was then which takes away a lot of the enjoyment This book was recommended by Mary from the group I spend most of my time in with Goodreads, the Romance Refugees forum I m so glad she did I enjoyed it a lot This book was first published in 1994, so it s far from new, and I m thinking 1994 was a pretty good year as so many books I ve loved just happened to have been published in that year It s so hard to find a good medieval romance, so many of them set in that period don t follow life as it was then which takes away a lot of the enjoyment This book, as far as I could tell, was pretty ...

    This was a hard book to rate There s so much about it that s really first rate The author is a very good writer and story teller And she has done her research The book is set in England at the end of the 12th Century, and feels very authentic I really love to see the history get equal time with romance in my historical romances, and I feel that here it certainly does.This is an arranged marriage between Rowena and Rannulf They re both nobility, and as is so typical of the period the marria Thi...

    Genre Medieval RomanceI tend to avoid Medieval romances the main characters especially the heroine usually have modern attitudes that make me gag in a medieval setting This one was a very pleasant surprise Rowena is a 12th century noblewoman she may not want her marriage, and while she could refuse it, her father would only find someone ...

    While I love historical fiction and appreciate that the author spent 12 years researching the period, her writing leaves something to be desired The plot was simple and predictable The number of grammatical and spelling errors was unacceptable.
