I am on chapter five and finding this a bit heavy going. It's well written, the language and historical details are brilliant, I'm just very confused. Will persevere.

Difficult to read 13 Oct. 2013
By Preppy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ysabella comes across as an insecure, immature woman which is contradictory to the character the author paints of her. The continuous harping on the fact that Merlyn lied to her, that she could not trust him got so bad that it was difficult to keep on reading. At one stage Merlyn shared information with Ysabella, and she "realized" that she have been judging him unfairly - but she keeps on with the same song and dance. While the story line had great potential, it was not realized due to this focus on the insecure and nagging Ysabella. There is little character development, and I ended up pitying the poor Merlyn...

Not Her Best 1 May 2013
By Stephanie Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Usually, I like Claire Delacroix, but I could not get into this book; I am at page 76 and have quit reading. I did not like the heroine and the hero was practically absent (at least up to this point). Because, as others have pointed out, the main hero is a peasant, she is illiterate and superstitious; this is very accurate for the time, but between her ignorance and her obstinateness, I did not find her to be likable, admirable, or anyone with whom I would want to spend 4 hours of reading. Again, I usually like Claire Delacroix and will not quit reading her books, but I am putting this one away.

Interesting and exciting 23 Dec. 2003
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Setting - Scotland 1371 --- The story opens with our heroine, Ysabella, who was once married then left the wealthy Merlyn Lammergeier, laird of Ravensmuir, five years previously after only a fortnight of marriage. She is shunned by the townspeople after they believe she had been cast off and set aside by her husband. In order to support her sister and brother, she is forced to brew ale under the auspices of another due to arcane local ordinances. It is a meager existence but one of her choosing since she rejected and abandoned the husband she could not reconcile herself with once she believed that he dealt in stolen religious artifacts. Now, Merlyn has returned to reclaim her and though she certainly feels the passion he elicits in her she spurns him again.
The next day she is informed that Merlyn has been murdered and she is his heiress, inheriting Ravensmuir which she promptly moves her family into. Her first night in her solar and she dreams of making quite passionate love to Merlyn, only to discover the next morning that it wasn't a dream but reality. Merlyn is alive, having survived an ambush, and he asks Ysabella to continue to play a grieving widow to help him discover his assailant.
The intrigue and mystery of the book is very clever with a couple of surprises, though somewhat predictable. The reader should find the historical aspect of this novel very interesting highlighting the illicit religious artifact trade that was prevalent in that period. Ysabella's illiteracy, figuring prominently and another source of conflict in the marriage, was also an interesting historical aspect to discover in how it was dealt with during that period. Of course, Ysabella's continued obstinacy did begin to grate on my nerves as I found Merlyn to be quite charming and most deserving of a second chance and her `secret' was really quite easy to figure out. All in all, I would definitely recommend this first book in the Ravensmuir saga, and though I was introduced to the series by reading the third book first, they both stand alone and are engrossing and fabulously exciting reads by this very talented and gifted author.

Exciting? 17 July 2012
By JR Gardener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I borrowed this ebook from the library thinking it had action, adventure and two lovers finding their way back to each other. Maybe the book just starts slow but I got to page 117 and the only action is Merlyn faking his death.

Ysabella goes on and on, repeatedly, about how terrible Merlyn is, how he tricked her. Her reason for leaving him revolves around how pious she is but she makes the most of her reputation as a witch. At this point in the book she is not a very likable character and I can't bring myself to listen or read more.

I think I could really like Merlyn for all that he is a deceitful devil. I want to know more about his side of things instead of the constant harping from her.

The action has to increase as the plot moves on but waiting well over a third of the book is too long for me.

Come back to Ravensmuir, come back to romance, come back to The Rogue 31 Mar. 2011
By Deborah Haupt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Five years ago Ysabella gave her love to Merlyn of Ravensmuir, she knew the rumors, she heard the whispers but he somehow just moved her, it didn't take long for him to show his true colors, his true nature so Ysabella left Ravensmuir and left "The Rogue". Merlyn has always had to live down the reputation set by his father, he wants to be known as an honorable man, but it's hard to do especially when your own wife doesn't believe you. Well it's been five long years without her, and now he needs her, he still has deep feelings for her and it's now or never because someone wants to silence "The Rogue" forever.
You know there are so many great contemporary romances out there that I sometimes forget just how passionate historical romance can be, and this author is the Queen of historical romance as far as I'm concerned. It takes a certain kind of magic to describe to a media savvy world the interior of a 12th Century keep, to make her readers use their imagination when picturing characters of that era and no one does it better than Ms. Delacroix. So it's very fortunate we are that her Ravensmuir series is being re-released for the Kindle right now with the cover that shows Merlyn as the rogue he truly is. She takes us to her imaginary castle in a real Scotland at a long ago time, she gives us a history text book worthy plot, with Oscar worthy characters. The first thing you'll notice is the antiquated dialogue that fits right in with the times and which shows off effectively her history background. She introduces us to her historically accurate men, women and children she showcases the hard life, the cruelty but she shows us that even in the mean old middle ages love still not only survives but conquers all. Her hero and heroine are head butting, one moment and cleaving to each other the next, does it work, you bet it does. Her romance is of second chances, my favorite, it's sweet while at the same time heady and innocence mixed with potent sexuality. The love scenes are daydream like and impressionistic and then she'll hit us up side the head with in your face earthy, visceral action, but she does shade it with innuendo and adult language and it won't offend any true romance lover.
If you've forgotten the allure of historical romance or if you just want to fall in love again with the old fashioned kind of knight and lady then come back to Ravensmuir, come back to Scotland, come back to "The Rogue" and come back to Clair Delacroix. You'll be glad you did.
