Magnus is fascinated by this petite, bold beauty who has come to him for help. He cannot refuse her, for she has stirred fires within him as no woman before. Yet another reason impels him to keep the lady close -- a secret that could threaten everything she loves. If she uncovers his dark mysteries, will Reena shun the handsome devil she has bargained with...or will she surrender completely to a fierce and dangerous passion?
I know I would....
Not far from home, she would encounter a knight, totally garbed in black astride a charging stallion as Reena was struck with fear and unable to move. He swooped down and plucked her onto his saddle thinking her young lad. Not wanting to deceive him, she pulled off the concealing cap to show that she was female and not a `lad' as he had assumed by her slight and undernourished figure. Offering her mapmaking skills she bargained with him for his protection and assistance for the people of her village. Magnus, the "Legend", was impressed with both her courage, first in seeking him out, and her mapmaking drawing skills. He agreed never thinking that, this skinny, independent and brave slip of a girl would soon capture his heart. For Reena, it was a matter of accepting as a package the gentle man Magnus from the fearsome "Legend"
This was a romance in every sense of the word. The hero was divinely handsome, strong, brave and gentle, and the heroine wonderfully gifted, intelligent and selfless. It wasn't a love at first glance all-consuming passionate encounter, but a very deep and satisfying love story that took its time to develop as each came to admire and love one another for who and what they were. The writing was fresh, spontaneous and with enough mystery to keep you turning the pages to discover the `secrets' behind the Legendary Warrior. Readers will find this to be a lovely, comfortable and totally satisfying read. --- Submitted by Marilyn, Official Reviewer for www.historicromancewriters.com
There is absolutely no depth to this story. The repetition becomes such a distracting annoyance within the first couple of chapters and continues right through to the end.
Someone needs to hand this author a thesaurus, and take away her question mark key!
"Am i in love with him? Could it be possible i'm falling for him? Could he ever love me?" must have been said every other paragraph.
Not to mention the first scene with the Dark One, what a joke. "my friend" "my friend" "my friend" ... enough already, we get it! They're friends.
The characters and storyline had great potential but definitely dive bombed right in the beginning.
And since when do 16th century warriors constantly sit around with his buddies talking about love and romance? Pleaseeeee.. ridiculous.
You couldn't pay me enough to read another, a complete waste of time and money. So i have two words for those considering reading this book. "Don't bother!"
There is even a sub-plot love story between Thomas, Mangus's friend, and Brigid, Reena's friend that is just as sweet and loving as the main story.
This book is very refreshing and I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading other books by Ms. Fletcher
