3.0 out of 5 stars Discord Reigns. 26 Jan 2005
By MaryGrace Meloche - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Talk about hostility and mistrust, it is in full abundance in MY GALLANT ENEMY. And if ever, there was a more spoiled, childlike heroine than Lady Lilliane of Castle Orrick, I have yet to discover her!

In 2005, Rexanne Becnel is considered a personal favorite, her books are a must buy for this 'poor' reader. However, in 1990, when Becnel released this medieval romance, she certainly hadn't attained her future expertise.

Corbett of Colchester is a robust, arrogant knight. He returns to England a veteran of the hard-fought Crusades. Corbett is regarded as a favorite in the King's court. His assigned duty: to keep peace in England's volatile northern territories. To achieve his goal, he weds his enemy's daughter: Lady Lilliane.

Lady Lilliane of Orrick, the eldest daughter of Lord Barton, is not happy with her arranged marriage. Definitely, not happy - until she hits the marriage bed. Ah, then she is stroked and pacified . . . until the morning light . . . and then . . . I hate you, my lord . . . And . . . Bed me, my lord . . . I despise you, my lord . . . AGAIN . . . Bed me, my lord . . . And . . . so goes MY GALLANT ENEMY . . . Good grief! Grief: deep mental anguish, annoyance, or frustration - exactly!

The book's friction is hung right around Lady Lilliane's pretty little neck! Becnel created a 'child' in this heroine. This confused, impertinent, young woman consistently scoffs at sound advice regardless of the ramifications. On the other hand, the reader REALIZES the consequences, consequences which create an uncomfortable read.

The years have been good for Rexanne Becnel; she has sharpened her skills nicely, developing into a very good author. To fully appreciate this rewarding author, check out: "The Bridemaker", "The Heartbreaker", "Christmas Journey", or "The Maiden Bride". These books shine with Becnel's talent; on the other hand, MY GALLANT ENEMY is dim in comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Things Were Just Meant To Be. 30 Sep 2000

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lilliane never expected the unexpected; that she would have to honor her father's wishes and marry Corbett of Colchester. Ha! I loved the hero, Corbett had me in suspense. I never knew what he was thinking or feeling - definitely kept me on my toes. Aside from being her enemy - he turned her world upside down and gallantly made her fall in love with him!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for Rexanne's first novel... 17 Jun 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase was her first, so it's not exactly up to par with her later novels. Kind of slow, with a somewhat boring plot. It was worth reading, but was ultimately not a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this book! 29 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was surprised at the previous bad review - I wonder if she has the right book because this is not a Regency! If you love Medevils, don't miss this sweet story. He is a wonderful hero and she was a spunky heroine. This book is a keeper that I love reading again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Unforgettable, a rare find 6 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought this book was wonderful!! It is about a very strong young woman, Lillian, who was once in love with a man, William, that her father forbade her to marry. At that he, married someone else and she was betrothed to Corbett. Then something happens and a battle breaks out and Corbett's father and Lillian's cousin are killed fighting against each other. At that, Lillian leaves town. Upon her return three years later, to attend her two sisters' weddings, her father is very ill and his castle is to be left in the hands of Lillian's sister and brother-in-law when he dies if Lillian does not marry. Her father does not want this for he wants his home to be left in the hands of his oldest daughter Lillian. And Corbett needs Lillian to be his bride so he can have possession of both places. At that, he pays her father a visit and, in result, she is once again betrothed to him. And she hates him for she blames him for the death of her cousin. From there, this book is full of heartache, happiness, anger, loss, mistrust, and jealousy. I highly recommend it. It is one of the best Historical Romance books I have ever read. Not your boring typical romance. She is strong and he is fearless. They have each met their match and this makes the perfect book.
