4.0 out of 5 stars A Bodice-Ripping Yarn! 23 Jan 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What attracted my interest to the book was the fact that its hero was Norman, and I am descended from the Norman invaders of 1066. Plus I am a great fan of romance, and all other reviews were extremely favourable of its romantic content!
I loved the way Sara Bennet sketched Lady Lily's character. She was believable and easy to empathise with- plucky, humourous, but at the same time vulnerable and aware of the restrictions placed on her gender. Many historical romances contain central female characters I just want to slap for being so sappy, but that was definately not the case here!
Radulf, on the other hand (a rather dubious name for a Norman) was chauvanistic and cruel, though Bennet cleverly demonstrated in his thoughts just why he behaved like that. Unlike many central male characters in romance novels, he leapt out of the page, muscles and all, and seemed very real (and gorgeous) to me. In the end I was rooting for him too.
The Lily and the Sword lost a star for me because it seemed to sag a little towards the end, (by then it was obvious they were going to stay together), but the journey was entertaining, the love scenes were hot, and the ending was happy, so I would definately recommend this novel!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 30 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The heroine was very sweet and the hero was kind. He was a real tough guy. The story is set in medival england. Get the book and you won't be disappointed. I was also glad when they found out the were expecting a child. To find out what happened to these characters read the rose and the shield. I gave the book 5 stars because I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Get your copy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lily and the Sword 7 Jun 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Radulf the King's Sword seeks the wife of a traitor believing her to be one too, to take before the Norman king for punishment. He finds a girl hiding in a church and takes her prisoner unaware she is the one he is looking for. Although he knows she is lying about who she is he has no idea she is really the one he seeks. He is furious when he realises her deception but there is an undeniable attraction between them...

I enjoyed this book so much I bought several more books by Sara Bennett and have enjoyed all of them.
