Connie Mason has done it again - another great read. Connie Mason had always been one my favourite historical romance authors and she never disappoints:-
The arrogant Lionheart has been orded by Prince Edward to storm Cragdon Castle, while doing so he spots the White Kight, a slim young worrior on a pure white steed, leading the defending forces. Unable to reach the Kight he storms through the portcullis in search of him but all he finds is a beautiful maiden. Now a different battle begins, one that needs subtler tactics. But just as he thought he had the upper hand, his heart is taken hostage - by the power of love.
Once again a fantastic read full of chivalry, tournaments, lust and love!
If you liked The Black Knight by Connie Mason then you'll love this!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lionheart had been ordered by Prince Edward to take Cragdon Castle. That siege was where he first met the White Knight. However, once the castle had been claimed, the White Knight was nowhere to be found. Instead there was the lady of the keep, Vanora. The earlier battle had allowed cover for the escape of Daffid of Deverell and the White Knight. Lionheart soon had a vendetta against the elusive White Knight. In the meantime, Lionheart found himself obsessed with Vanora. His honor refused to allow him to simply claim her as the spoils of war. She was loyal to Wales and Llewelyn. He was loyal to England and Prince Edward. To have her, he would have to marry her.
Lord Rhys of Cragdon, Vanora's father, had died the Winter before. His warriors were now loyal to Vanora. But they were no match for Lionheart's forces. Through cunning, she helped her warriors escape, enraging Lionheart no end. Yet as she fought him, she could not stop herself from wanting him. To have him, though, would be a form of betrayal.
**** A steamy romance, wrought with betrayal, that will ensnare readers quickly. There are times the book seemed to slow down where romance is concerned. However, it overflows with battles and is historically accurate. It is immediately apparent that Vanora is the White Knight. No reader could NOT catch on to that fact before the castle is even captured. Yet the author kept the battle scenes of the White Knight realistic by making the allusive knight slim, wield a lighter sword, and not be as well trained as the men in that time frame. This is not Connie Mason's best work, by far, but I still found myself hooked in the story and unable to stop reading until the last page had been turned. Well worth your time and money.

Although it was a good read, it was nothing new. Same old same old. Lionheart an English knight was ordered by Prince Edward to take Cragdon Castle. And of course there's a female. Once the castle had been seized he eventually seized the lady of the keep, Vanora who is Welch and hates the English, for good reason since they're taking her country and lands. As usual there's an enemy(what's a medieval romance without one)Venora was promised by her father to Daffid and he of course wants the land and Venora who is part of the parcel.

In the meantime, Lionheart is sexually obsessed with Vanora, and the story goes on to her resisting and he lustfully pressing on, and she eventually caving in, acting like she didn't want him.. Meh!

Same rinky-dink foolishness. Lots a sex that became annoying at times.

Great, must read book 4 Nov. 2002
By Angela Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you love Connie Mason's writing, you will love this book! I would disagree with the previous comment, I think Connie Mason is getting better. She captured both Vanora's and Lionheart's emotions and personality perfectly. Lionheart appreciated and loved Vanora's bold, independent spirit which brought out his love for her in the end. Vanora fell in love with him after she sees how tender he is to her when in the past she has seen and felt the ruthless behavoir of men who tried to rule her land and herself. Connie Mason wrote this in a great historical time and place. I hope she writes more books similar to this book!
It's a worthwhile entertaining book to read and to keep as a collectible. Have plenty of time to read this book, it will have you glued to the pages! =o)

Smooth Romance Candy! You Go Connie :) 17 May 2003
By Tara A. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Connie Mason transports us back to Northeast Wales, 1258. While engaged in a battle and storming Cragdom Lionheart (Lionel de Couer) first sees the "White Knight". Enraged by the arrogance and sophistication of the White Knight's demeanor in battle, Lionheart dedicates himself to tracking down this knight and making him pay for besting him and his men on the battle field.
As he takes over Cragdom he is greeted by the Vanora, lady of the Castle. She is a stunning beauty with a confident air that he is unused to when dealing with women. He finds himself captivated, in fact driven to complete blind lust in his pursuit to bed her. Finding himself suddenly married by a Priest who demands that he make his bond with Vanora official before bedding her, makes for all sorts of interesting adventures.
The introduction of his former mistress Althea is entertaining and fun. Watching Lionheart squirm as he juggles his wife and former lover makes for some awkward moments.
Throughout the story, Vanora continues her disguise as the White Knight as her loyalty to her castle men drives her to warn them of Lionheart's pursuit of them. When Lionheart finds out, he is furious. What comes next, you'll have to read the book to see!
Connie Mason's story of love touches a chord, though this book is not far from the beaten path Connie writes, it is still one I enjoy taking. Ms. Mason's writing style is always smooth, the story always entertaining, and the hero and heroine ones you seek when reading a romance.
I have yet to read a Connie Mason book I have not enjoyed. Perhaps that is the sign of a masterful writer...
