"Lady of Valor" was my first book by Tina St John but not the last one. The author's writing style is very good, entertaining and easily followed by the reader.The story is set in medieval England during the rule of King Richard the Lionheart. The writer gives us a good glimpse into the historical background and into the daily routine of castle life. The leading characters are Lady Emmalyn and Sir Cabal who have both suffered in life.Emmalyn is a young widow who after learning about her cruel husband's death in the Holy Land wants to stay lady of the castle and look after her home and people. Cabal is a homeless knight the king's right arm and feared by everyone because of his bloody reputation in battle.He is sent to look after the holding for the crown until Richard finds a new loyal lord for the keep and a new husband for Emmalyne.The plot is fast-moving and there are many exciting actions happening fast enough to keep the reader's attention.I like the way the author writes about manual duties done in the castle or about its people's celebrations and their loyalty to their lady. Emmalyne is a strong character who slowly learns to trust and love Cabal. She finds out about his black past and wants to help him to find happiness together. Cabal is a man hardened by war, he thinks he can't live without it but he falls in love with Emmalyne's beauty , courage and kindness to her people. Together they fight for the future of their love and the wellbeing of their people. Both characters are very well described and you must understand them and like them. They are so alive you can nearly touch them. I liked many of the secondary characters as well.They come alive as you read page after page and make you read the book in record time.Ms. St John's sense of humour is very entertaining.
LADY OF VALOR is a beautiful medieval romance that has everything what the genre requires and most of all it has SOUL.
Tina St John is a very talented and promising new author of historical romance. She knows the time period well and you can see that she spends enough time on research. I look forward to reading her other medieval romances and I highly recommend them to all historical romance lovers.

This is a fantastic book of harden warrior male turned to mush by the love and strong will of a beautiful widow fighting to keep her land and castle. As king richard's best and most lethal knight Sir Cabel is sent to ensure the safety of the castle from the family of the lord killed in the battle field.

This has 2 very powerful emotional characters that can't seem to get along yet secretly burn for each others touch, with such a strong willed lady and battle bruised knight there r twists and turns throughout which keep you wondering just who will win the battle of the wills.

Great love story and the background and detailed characters through out book help you emerse yourself in the old english world of lords and ladys.

i have loved all of lara's knight series and am wishfully hoping she has more to re-release in the not so distant future x

Charming romantic tale, full of love and passion. A story about loyalty and two people who fall in love despite their differences.

A story of a man who though battle hardened and weary meets a strong woman, she makes him a better person, gives him hope for a future. The heroine too fights for her people and the right to control her destiny, to love the hero and spend her life with him.

Wonderfully descriptive of medieval times, the insight into a woman's place in that era, her helplessness at the hands of men, how a mercenary knight lived and was perceived, so well written.

Loved this book.

I have read all this series and would recommend them to anyone who likes romance and a few sexy bits thrown in. Try reading the Midnight Breed series as well. You wont be disappointed.
