Review taken from my Blog Post #382 in July 2013.

Even though this is Book 4 in the Series, without a doubt it can still be considered a standalone read.

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it, and it had all the essential elements.

The plot was well paced, the characters interesting, honest and believable. What was nice to see was how well the Author wrote not just about historical detail, but human frailty in all its good and ugly forms.

I will certain seek out the remainder of this series.

4 star read - Highly recommended by me if you want characters you can engage with, and a love story to warm your heart.

There were a few tiny errors, but my note book is not to hand, and it's nearly midnight .... so I will edit them later on the Blog.

Other than that Kudos to Ms Domning for such a quality piece of work.

I had no great expectations from this book. I like to make up my own mind. Well, nothing got done that I was going to do once I picked this book up. From the first line to the last my emotions went high and low with the characters. Lovemaking scenes were done sensitively and not to shock and there was more story than lovemaking so you did not get desensitized and bored with it. Humour, Action, tragedy, love, secrets and all set in a period of history that I find fascinating. I have put it in my read again section on my kindle and am going hunting for the other books in the series.

I awarded this story with 3 and 1/2 stars.
This was an entertaining, quickly read, well edited romance which begins in the England of 1194 when rules governing what a woman could do were very strict. It might have seemed the ideal time for some women when a detested husband died, but not so. If pregnant, the widow had to be the ward of the local sheriff till the babe was born- the Normans having their finances, and potential heirs, at the forefront of importance! This aspect of Norman law was new to me; I must have missed reading about this before though medieval England has never yet been my main study area. The plot doesn’t vary much from other Medieval romances that I’ve read, but the writing was engaging enough to keep the interest going throughout the story.
I warmed sufficiently well to Geoffrey FitzHenry, Lord Coudray, the maimed yet still devastating hero - though I was a bit confused about who were the legitimate of the four sons of the father/mother in this story and brothers to Geoff. It didn’t matte though because Geoff’s brothers are all lovely with very non-traditional wives.
However, I found that the ‘firebrand’ Elyssa, heroine of the story, takes a bit of getting used to. Her smothering mother hen nature and ready tendency to weeping for me didn’t quite match with her desire for independence. There were many instances when I thought that something was a bit difficult to swallow, like the transformation of Jocelyn from complete wimpy mother’s pet (though already a devious manipulator) to a strong and wonderfully competent page boy who becomes one of the heroes of the siege of the tower house where Elyssa and her women have taken flight- after taking up arms to defend the walls.

I usually enjoy Denise Domning's books (although I think the men are truly awful to the heroines at the start). But I could feel no sympathy or empathy with the spoilt, petulant, selfish, moaning and forever crying "heroine." And he called her strong at one point, What? She must be the worst heroine in fiction, awful and the "hero" was no better threatening to beat a pregnant Elyssa (the so-called heroine) yet she falls for him. Hum.

Having read the Warrior series and enjoyed them, I was keen to read another novel by dd. And I wasn’t disappointed. Once again, medieval life is revealed in all its shortcomings against a backdrop of the pageantry and romance of that era. Not only is the period portrayed with stunning realism, the authors eye for detail paints a vivid picture of life and countryside in medieval times. I am always amazed that despite an era known for its chivalry, the men indiscriminately brutalised the women. The women in turn use every available means to keep their independence. This reality is exploited and woven by DD into a spell binding tale or two. Her heroines, feisty independent gals who struggle to accept their situation undoubtedly rouse the ire of even the most chivalrous medieval men in a time when they would appear as cuckolds if they concede to a woman. As with her other books once I started, I had to finish. I read the entire book in one sitting. Get 1 clicking for this book & you will not be disappointed. This author is definitely on my favourite list and I will be reading more of her books.

From start to finish I loved this book and found it hard to let it finish. The main characters are equally complicated and endearing and cleverly matched. Elyssa and Geoffrey embark on a frustrating, complicated and at times humorous road to love and eventually loving bliss and both of their stories are intriguing and tragic. If you haven't read the other titles in this series then make sure you do as they tell the intriguing story of Geoffrey's 3 other brothers and will fill in any gaps of information about them. Although this is a series, each of the books in this series can be read as stand alone books. Enjoy this book.
