Product Description

THE KNIGHTS DE WARE:

From a long line of legendary warriors come three brothers to carry on the rich and powerful de Ware legacy: Duncan the Champion...Holden the Warrior...Garth the Hero...

MY WARRIOR:

Fierce and fearless Sir Holden de Ware has been sent to Scotland to ally with the Gavin clan and secure the border—an easy conquest, he assumes, until he discovers that the impassioned warrior defending the castle is a woman. Fiery Cambria Gavin is not about to surrender her land. She blames Holden for her father’s death and—as proud and capable as any knight—she vows vengeance. But her sworn enemy proves gallant, courageous, and irresistible, and revenge becomes a double-edged sword as Cambria finds her blade...and her heart...hopelessly entangled with his.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a warrior! 21 May 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What a hero! Holden de Ware is a giant of a man, unsurpassed as a knight. He has taken all his childhood tales of heroic knightly deeds and made them into reality. Scornful of love Holden accepts a soldier’s task in the far north of Edward’s Kingdom. Supported by his gentler more philosophical brother, Garth, the Wolf of de Ware searches for a traitor to the King. The Wolf finds himself in battle with Cambria, the Gavin, a lady loyal to her clan at the sacrifice of her own happiness. Her demeanour is one of a warrior but her skill is puny beside that of Holden the Wolf. As the tale unfolds it is Cambria that softens the hard Knight’s heart and enables him to find his true courage. The hero is unforgettable, the dialogue witty and the love scenes are sensual and passionate. The second in a trilogy it is advisable to read My Champion and meet the memorable Duncan de Ware who reappears with his wife Linnet in My Warrior and again in the third book My Hero. I shall be keeping these on my shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb historical romance 3 Oct 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1333, King Edward assigns a difficult task to one of his most trusted warriors. Holden de Ware must forge an alliance with the Scottish border clan Gavin. Holden and Angus Gavin work out an agreement, but a jealous lieutenant Sir Roger Fitzroi thinks otherwise and murders a stunned Angus. This devilish act leaves his daughter Cambria as chieftain.

Cambria hates Holden for his betrayal of the pact with her father and wants him dead in an eye for an eye belief that he killed her beloved sire. Cambria, a remarkable swordswoman, vows vengeance, but Holden tries his best to stop her from arousing more ire and spilling unnecessary blood. Though she detests him, Cambria and Holden fall in love, but treachery still lingers as Roger plans to eliminate what he perceives as his obstacle for Edward's blessing, de Ware.

MY WARRIOR, the latest de Ware tale (see MY CHAMPION), is an exciting medieval romance starring two enticing lead charcaters. Though the story line adheres strictly to the typical sub-genre basic theme, fans will enjoy this novel because Holden and Cambria are a delightful duo struggling with betrayal, mistrust, and love. Glynnis Campbell entertains her audience with this exciting fourteenth century novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars my warrior - an adventure of the heart! 3 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Cambria Gavin is a proud Scot and the only child of Laird Angus Gavin. She grew up with a sword in her hand, a bow and arrow she can shoot straighter than any knight and chain mail for her code of dress. She doesn't know, or care, how beautiful she is. She cares only for ber beloved Scotland, Blackhaugh Castle, the Gavin land and the Scottish way of life. Laird Angus knows the only way to ensure their future is with the support of the English army. He agrees to meet with one of Kind Edward's knights, Lord Holden de Ware, a man known to be just and honorable and trustworthy. Bah! Cambria believes no Enlishman can be trusted!
There is much jealousy and treachery going on inside the castles walls. Blackhaugh is crumbling and Holden de Ware cannot believe the strength and courage of this Scottish sprite. Cambria is brave and breathtakingly beautiful. She is also strong, stubborn and opinionated; the perfect woman for him! Winning her heart feels more glorious than any victory he's ever won on the battlefield. Holden has been conquered; the mighty warrior has fallan and is a willing prisoner of her heart. For the first time in Cambria's life she feels like a woman. In Holden she sees a mighty warrior, a protector and the promise of a future. They love each other beyond reason, beyond understanding and more than life itself. This love is tested many times over. They are captivating.
If you like castles and kings and knights in shining armor, whose legs turn to mush when they fall in love, don't miss this truly marvelous adventure of the heart. Ms. Campbell has gifted us with a wonderful sequel to MY CHAMPION, de Ware brother #1's adventurous tale. One can only hope that de Ware brother #3 has his own story in the near future. Rare treasure, these brothers three; gifts for your heart. Don't miss them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Childish heroine brings down good story 12 Nov 2001
By Nicole Miale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm a long-time romance fan with a particular affinity for the medieval period. I liked Duncan and Linet's story last year and was looking forward to the continuing adventures of the de Ware clan. I really like the hero of this story - Holden de Ware, who is everything a medieval warrior hero should be. I am however, deeply disappointed with the heroine - Cambria Gavin - who is no match for Holden in any way, as far as I can tell.
As a young Scots woman charged with either maintaining a fragile truce with the English (brokered by her father) or destroying it, Cambria makes every self-righteous, immature choice possible, and does everything she can to ensure ongoing trouble for herself and everyone around her. She has no sense of diplomacy, no sense of restraint. Every impetuous comment or action that occurs in her fevered little brain pops right out, and it becomes maddening to the reader as she falls into one scrape after another, or causes injury to others because of her thoughtlessness.
Throughout this, Holden, with long-suffering patience and amazing temperance, does not beat her or lock her up (except for briefly). Instead, he sets out to make her trust him and fall in love with him. Why he thinks she's worth having is not clear to me. That he succeeds and they fall in love is a given, since this is a romance. But I was left unsatisfied, thinking that Holden definitely got the short end of the bargain. I hope the other de Ware brothers fare better in their choices of mates and the HEA endings to come.

2.0 out of 5 stars Never warmed to the heroine 12 Sep 2012
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
There's a strong heroine and then there are heroines who are beyond strong to unbending and headstrong, which describes the leading lady of My Warrior. She is way too stubborn and tends to have one standard for herself and another for her leading man.

Cambria Gavin is no typical woman. She is the only child of the laird, she trains for combat with her clansmen and she never wants to marry so she can be the next chief of her clan. Her father plans to enter a truce with the English but when he is double crossed by an Englishman, he dies and his child becomes the laird and she is filled with hatred and revenge.

Holden de Ware is in service to the king and when he must take over Cambria's castle he is intrigued by the angry young woman. He finds her beautiful and is interested in pursuing her even though she never encourages him and basically blames him for her father's death. Holden is a bit over confident here.

Cambria joins a rebel group which kidnaps Holden and almost kills him. She realizes he must remain alive or things will deteriorate even further with the English. She has little leadership ability with these rebel clan members. Cambria almost always reacts to situations, rarely thinking through her actions and she finds herself in hot water many times. She does not listen to others; even trusted clan members cannot make her see reason.

Cambria insists she is right and she takes foolish chances. Holden also can be arrogant, believing he can persuade Cambria to fall in love with him. This turns into a battle of wills that got tiresome. Cambria is loyal first to her clan but she resents that Holden is loyal to his king.

Holden, who seemed so stable and honorable becomes entirely too demanding and taciturn in the last few chapters of this book. I barely recognized him and Cambria didn't either. Both leads are obstinate, and I just did not find myself overly excited about their romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story of an Impetuous Lass 1 Oct 2007
By Lisa Shea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's funny how different people relate to different types of heroines. I hear that some people loved the blonde heroine in the first story, and disliked Cambria in this story for being too impetuous. That was the whole point :) Each brother has a very different personality, and is drawn to a very different type of girl. I give Glynnis great credit for not just churning out the same story with the same characters. Glynnis is as different from Linet as can be. For me, this is a VERY good thing.

My Warrior is the second book in the trilogy, about the second brother, Holden de Ware. Where his older brother Duncan is the consummate knightly eldest son, Holden has to fight for what he wants. He is a well seasoned warrior and looks down on the average woman with a mild eye. It's only when he runs into the feisty she-warrior Cambria that his pulse quickens.

Cambria is raised to be impetuous. She's an only child. She's raised to become Laird of her castle, a thing accepted in Scottish society. She's indulged, and has no mother to guide her. She grows up wild. So yes, she's extremely hot tempered and quick to react. She never did learn the patience and rational thought skills. If you think Cambria is wild, read the next trilogy about the Warrior Maidens of Rivenloch to see what true wildness is :)

Anyway, Cambria's father dies, and Scotland is being torn apart by war. Holden is the representative of England and trying to bring peace. Other Scots - if you think Cambria is impetuous - are doing suicidal runs against the English, dying by the scores. There is treachery within Holden's ranks, so he has to deal with Cambria trying her best to stay independent, his own forces, and the wild Scots.

But Holden loves a challenge - and has finally met up with a woman who puts a spark in his heart. He is very intrigued by Cambria and her hell-bent desire to do what she feels is right. I can definitely see the attraction there, and understand why he feels she is worth taming. I can also really see Cambria's gradual attraction to the power and skill of the man who woos her.

I read the book straight through, and was caught up in the storyline the whole way through. The only thing that seemed a bit forced was how Holden behaved near the end to her - I won't mention the specifics so that the plot isn't ruined. However, he is so straightforward with her up until then that it seemed a bit unreasonable for him not to explain then what his concerns were. Also, if he did have concerns, it seemed unreasonable that he did not take steps to address them, instead just abandoning the situation.

In any case, a great read, and a storyline I enjoyed greatly!
