5.0 out of 5 stars a magical Medeiros medieval tale!, 5 July 2004
This review is from: Shadow and Lace (Mass Market Paperback)
Teresa Medeiros has written books about every period in Hstorical Romance from Westerns to Regency to Faerytales. But one of my favorites is Shadows and Lace. Sorry, a well-written Medieval tale always captures my imagination. I read this book when it first came out, and just re-read it again, and found I was as thrilled the second time around. Maybe more so since you see so few TRUE Historical Romance currently being done. If you are hungry for a strong Medieval tale don't hesitate to snatch this one up. It will make a Medeiros fan out of you if you aren't already.
Nearly twenty years ago, a teenage Gareth of Caerleon held his two-year-old stepsister and felt protective of the child. But that same night, he learned his father had been killed in Wales fighting for Longshanks, his stepmother was murdered and that blue-eyed babe went missing. Since then, Gareth has been tainted with tales of murdering his step-mother in a jealous rage after catching her with her lover and disposed of that child.
Rowanne has lived in poverty as her father wasted money are little provided for her all her brothers. Baron Lindsay Fordyce returns home and explains he had lost one of his children to Gareth for the term of one year. The whole family, including Rowanne, are shocked with Gareth chooses her. Gareth takes her home to Caerleon, and it's soon evident the dark knight is using Rowanne to provoke her father into action, but little does Rowanne understand the full extent of Gareth's designs upon her.
Revealing any more of the plot would spoil the wonderful tale. Medeiros has a good sense of historical detail, the dynamics of characters tortured by their past, and blends all her magical touches to give you a novel that will linger long after that last page it turned. One of the best Medieval Historicals written.
