Loved it it was my kind of thing, fast moving, strong characters, alpha male, passionate love, jealousy that tears them apart, a perfect match It drew me in immediately from their first meeting Ranulf, the Black Lyon, named for his fierce look and black features, is a feared warrior and English Earl that never smiles or laughs Lyonene perfect name for his lioness is just as strong She is a baron s daughter, even though she has been protected and sheltered by her family she is happy, darin Loved it it was my kind of thing, fast moving, strong characters, alpha male, passionate love, jealousy that tears them apart, a perfect match It drew me in immediately from their first meeting Ranulf, the Black Lyon, named for his fierce look and black features, is a feared warrior and English Earl that never smiles or laughs Lyonene perfect name for his lioness is just as strong She is a baron s daughter, even though she has been protected and sheltered by her family she is happy, daring and fearless AND she makes the Lyon laugh Their love story in the beginning is so sweet I love how Lyonene s mother plots to bring them together as she recognizes the strong character and honor of the Black Lyon hidden behind his gruff exterior as the perfect match for her wild and free daughter Their attraction is so strong that Lyonene throws herself at the Lyon and he fights her off to protect her virtue They are betrothed after two days even though she is below his station he wants her Then the Lyon leaves for 3 weeks and thinks too much which causes too much trouble She anxiously waits everyday dreaming about him, their wedding, and future and he returns a different person He treats her horrible and shows her no love or tenderness in his return all because of remembering his previous marriage that broke and hardened his heart His jealousy is over the top and because of a set up by a jealous previous suitor of Lyonene he is brutal to her and wants no love from her She fights him every step of the way, never backing down even though she fears him I love how she fights to find the love and connection they had when they first met especially with all obstacles put between them It really is a beautiful love story.I wasn t to sure about starting this series because I have seen some bad reviews there is a scene where he slaps her it didn t put me off , but yet it

in tact with all of it s old Skool, un politically correct charms I liked the hero and heroine for most of the book There was a part of the story where things got really stupid and I nearly stopped reading at 75%, but worked through it and finished the book.I guess I d say the overriding theme of this love story is a lengthy process for the hero and heroine to learn to trust each other as a married couple as they hadn t known each other but a day or two before they became betrothed Because of the very short duration that the couple had known each other, some of their misunderstandings seem possibly logical but YMMV.Also, the Medieval period detail was to die for as well and is what I live for If this book were written today, I think the editor would force the author to remove these details of Medieval life More is the pity.NTS HRBC February 16 28, 2017 BOTM This book was written like it may have been one of the author s first books It was kind of choppy and lacked flowing

About the Author: Jude Deveraux

Jude Gilliam was born September 20, 1947 in Fairdale, Kentucky She has a large extended family and is the elder sister of four brothers She attended Murray State University and received a degree in Art In 1967, Jude married and took her husband s surname of White, but four years later they divorced For years, she worked as 5th grade teacher.She began writing in 1976, and published her first book, The Enchanted Land 1977 under the name Jude Deveraux Following the publication of her first novel, she resigned her teaching position Now, she is the author of 31 New York Times bestsellers Jude won readers hearts with the epic Velvet series, which revolves around the lives of the Montgomery family s irresistible men Jude s early books are set largely in 15th and 16th century England in them her fierce, impassioned protagonists find themselves in the midst of blood feuds and wars Her heroines are equally scrappy medieval Scarlett O Haras who often have a low regard for the men who eventually win them over They re fighters, certainly, but they re also beauties who are preoccupied with survival and family preservation Jude has also stepped outside her milieu, with mixed results Her James River trilogy River Lady, Lost Lady, and Counterfeit Lady is set mostly in post Revolution America the popular, softer edged Twin of Fire Twin of Ice moves to 19th century Colorado and introduces another hunky man clan, the Taggerts.Deveraux manages to evoke a strong and convincing atmosphere for each of her books, but her dialogue and characters are as familiar as a modern day soap opera s Historicals seem to be all I m capable of, Jude once said in an interview, referring to a now out of print attempt at contemporary fiction, 1982 s Casa Grande I don t want to write family sagas or occult books, and I have no intention of again trying to ruin the contemporary market Still, Jude did later attempt modern day romances, such as the lighthearted High Tide her first murder caper , the contemporary female friendship story The Summerhouse, and the time traveling Knight in Shining Armor In fact, with 2002 s The Mulberry Tree, Deveraux seems to be gettingcomfortable setting stories in the present, which is a good thing, since the fans she won with her historical books are eager to follow her into the future.Jude married Claude White, who she later divorced in 1993 Around the same time she met Mohammed Montassir with whom she had a son, Sam Alexander Montassir, in 1997 On Oct 6th, 2005, Sam died at the age of eight in a motorcycle accident Jude has lived in several countries and all over the United States She currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and has an additional home in the medieval city of Badolato, Italy.
