Book Description

Owen Gisborne is a knight in training. He vows not to lose his heart to a woman, but only to dedicate himself to the prestige of his warrior's class. But to be a Gisborne is to love with a great passion, even if it goes against the rules...

Lady Isabella is a woman with a heart that is desperate for love. Denied the happiness that she sees in so many others, she makes a choice that changes the course of her life...and puts her very existence in danger...

Can love survive the adversity of an unforgiving world? Or will the mistakes of the past destroy any hope of happiness?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another splendid serving from Ms Hawkins! 11 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book after falling in love with the author's writing style when reading The Tempest. She has clear, defined characters who move along ever developing, but uncontrived plot lines. The wonderful Sir Guy of Gisborne still makes an appearance within these pages, mellowed but the fire not gone, but it is his son that we follow in this adventure. It is a finely developed tale of unrequited love, accepting what life gives us and also being willing to fight for what we want. It is written as part of a series but stands well on it's own. Congratulations to the author for such a compelling read!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in Gisborne...AGAIN! 17 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the third offering from the talented Charlotte Hawkins which delves into the life of Guy of Gisborne and his family this time with the focus being on his son Owen. As a loud and proud 'bookworm' one of my greatest joys from this series is Hawkins relationship which her readers and she is always on hand (through Twitter) to discuss her stories and in particular our shared love of a certain Gisborne... Yes if you are a fan of Richard Armitage and his portrayal of Gisborne in the BBC series 'Robin Hood' you will love these stories but it has gone beyond that for me- I have fell in love with the family that Hawkins has created for him. Right from the start Cassia was my favourite and Owen was always the annoying younger brother I was glad I didn't have myself. However,after reading 'The Baron's Lady' I now do have a soft spot for him.

I love that she produces such strong and complicated female characters too, I have always loved Evelyn (having started the series with her story) but Thea who I previously dismissed (like her younger brother) in the previous stories came into her own in this and she was not even the focus of it! Isabella too is a worthy addition to the Gisborne fold. I have found that I get so engrossed in the family I forget that I started reading them because of Guy- this is a testament to how well Hawkins weaves her story.

Hawkins writing has a clever way of leaving you imagining how the familiar story will continue only for her to take you in a completely different direction which is far far superior to your own imagination (well my own imagination at least)! I started in the middle of the series and I would urge you to read The Tempest first if you are looking at reading Hawkins for the first time, but if you have read the first two already- all I can say why are you reading this review and not The Baron's Lady already? BUY!

Please please Charlotte do not leave it here- more please! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The imperfections of H/h made them come to life! 30 July 2013
By bookworm2bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In this, her third book of the Gisborne saga, [The Tempest, My Lady Gisborne] Ms. Hawkins tells the tale of Guy of Gisborne's son, Owen. However, this is not a story that comes after the last book, but rather a parallel to it, and told mostly from Owen's point of view.

Owen is only seventeen when he gets infatuated by Lady Isabella, a beautiful young and married woman that is clearly out of his reach. As he gets to know her and her story better, he gives into his feelings more and more, finally admitting to himself that his heart belongs to this woman and no other.

Charlotte Hawkins manages to paint a picture of two individuals that are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. Both make many mistakes before their love is given a chance to blossom, and that's what made them more real to me. Their imperfections were dealt with as they grew closer together and it's what made them come to life.

As in her previous books, Ms. Hawkins takes the bones of a TV show `Robin Hood' and gives it her own muscle and sinew to bring the Gisborn's to life as we've never seen or read about before.

Each story is an original, well told tale of love found, lost and then found yet again.

The women in her medieval tales are strong and are not much relying on their knights in shining armor to rescue them, but are willing to work hard and sometimes rescue their knights instead.

But most of all, her books are about a family that loves one another through thick and thin.

The Baron's Lady is one medieval story you should try and read this summer, especially now that's FREE on Amazon. I hope you'll like it as much as I did.

1.0 out of 5 stars and generally poor grammar in some parts 4 July 2014
By Theresa Robertson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Aside from the misspelled words, misused words, and generally poor grammar in some parts, it wouldn't be a bad book. The premise is plausible, but the language is too modern. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this book, or any of the series to a serious reader of historical romance. I couldn't finish reading it. The characters were too liberal and 21st century to be believed in a medieval setting.

I liked the idea of the story but it lacked something. I found myself skipping through many pages in boredom.

I had a hard time connecting with the characters' emotions but did enjoy the story line. It was well written, no grammatical or other editing errors.
