By Linbe
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Landless and disgraced Sir Connor of Llanstephen finds himself at the castle of Montclair in search of a rich purse. The last thing he expected was to be attracted to the lady Allis.
Allis is all but engaged to Baron Rennick de Frouchette, a close neighbour, who has increasingly encroached on the family while Allis' father is lost in grief.
Allis has had to become strong for her brother and sister against Rennick's constant pressure to take over her and her family. In Conner she senses a kindred spirit, a light in her darkness and they are inevitably drawn to each other. As their love grows they are tempted to throw off their responsibilities to be with each other but through the plotting and machinations of others they are torn apart and forced to put others welfare before their own. Their love seems hopeless but a we all know true love always finds a way.
A strong quietly confident hero, a beautiful caring heroine,and villains you can really hate all add up to all the ingredients for a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful romance 1 Oct 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Earl of Montclair never recovered from the death of his beloved wife six years ago. He depends on his oldest daughter Allis to run the castle and his friend Baron Rennick DeFrouchette to oversee the estate. Although not up to it, Montclair hosts a tournament. On the eve of the event, Allis sees Connor of Llanstephan, a poor wandering knight whom King Richard sent home from the Holy Land in disgrace. Connor told His Highness that the slaughter of unarmed prisoners, even infidels, was wrong. Allis and Connor are instantly attracted to each other. Although she detests Rennick as a bully, Allis accepts his proposal because she fears for her siblings and her people.

Lord Oswald arrives and meets with Rennick to discuss the plot to assassinate King Richard. Oswald believes that Connor is the perfect pawn to kill the king while bringing the Welsh conspirators support to their cause if Rennick can keep Allis out of the way.

THE MAIDEN AND HER KNIGHT portrays a different picture of King Richard the Lionhearted through the eyes of a once believing but now skeptical Connor. The story line is exciting as readers wonder if Oswald is right that Connor is the perfect dupe to kill His Highness because of the horrifying Crusade. Allis is a brave sacrificing soul while Connor suffers from what he observed in the Holy Land. Margaret Moore, already known for strong tales like HIS FORBIDDEN KISS, A SCOUNDREL'S KISS, and ROGUE'S EMBRACE, paints another winning historical tale.

3.0 out of 5 stars mmmm-not bad 20 Nov 2001
By ARLENE G BOISVERT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book started off with great potential. The characters were being well developed and the plot line was going to be exciting. However, after numerous chapters on reading about how lonley the main characters had been in their lives, and how desperate everything seemed to look, it started to get tedious. (...) This book circles almost entirely around "feelings" between the two people, with very little spice added in the form of intrigue and danger. (...) The grand finale was rounded up to quickley and could have been sprinkled throughout the book to liven it up some. I would more or less give this book 2.5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars A very predictable romance 28 Aug 2002
By Tanya L. Schaub - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book had a great synopsis on the back which pulled me in. But after the first few chapters it got "tiring". About the 4th or 5th time I read about Conners reasons for disliking the King and why he was discraced and sent home from the Holy Lands I no longer cared.
The story starts out showing the stuggle of a young woman who has had to grow up very fast and take on much of the rolls of both mother, father and nurse maid. He father it seems has never recovered from the death of her mother. She is town between doing what she thinks will save her brother and sister from hurt in that she will wed Rennick though he is a huge jerk.
As the story unfolds there is intrigue, attempted overthrow of the King etc...
The problem is there is to much repeat of information, and nothing that really hangs you onto the story I had predicted what was going to happen after the first mention of conspiracy.
I would have to agree with the other reviewer who gave this book 2.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Medieval romance. 20 May 2002
By Rebecca Herman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Allis of Montclair is a young woman struggling to run her family's castle and lands ever since her mother died and her father fell into the depths of despair. Overburdened with responsibility, she must be the lady of the manor and a mother to her younger brother and sister. To help her family, she is willing to enter into a loveless marriage to Rennick DeFrouchette, a man Allis does not care for at all -- until she meets Connor, a Welsh knight returning disgraced from the Crusades. Allis and Connor and instantly attracted to one another, and their feelings grow into love. When treachery threatens their happiness, Allis and Connor must fight to find a way to be together. This was one of the first adult historical romances I read, and I simply loved it. I'll definitely be reading more books by Margaret Moore, and more Medieval-set romances.
