By A Customer on 7 April 1999
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There were many parts of this story I loved, and many others I disliked emencely. The two cancel each other out, which is why I rated this with a three star. First and foremost, I loved the time period in which this story was written. So few writers choose to write about Parlimentary England. Ms. Feather does a wonderful job in depicting the time period, the thoughts of the antagonists, the clothing, and everyday life. The story was filled with rich details and smooth writing. Life was so much different then, as compaired to today and this is wonderfully shown in the story. Our characters are well formed and very likable. Virginia and Alex mix well together.
I did not like, however, the 'I-hate-you-becuase-you-are-the-enemy,-but-can't-help-but-loving-you' storyline. I realize that is the title of the book and the whole premise of the relationship, but I didn't like it. The pretext Virginia keeps putting up, just didn't seem believable. If she hated Alex so much she could never have done what whe did, if she loved him, she could never have done what she did. I felt that you couldn't have it both ways, or atleast not the way THIS story was written. I also didn't appreciate what happens with Virginia's personal life. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but I felt that the second half of this story went WAY beyond credibility. After Virginia leaves England, there is not too much of the story I found redeming. It was an enjoyable read becuase the writting style was so fluid, but I had a pretty hard time getting into the plot.

This book was so very good that I hated to see it end. The characters are vividly drawn, beautifully written and unforgettable. Beloved Enemy is so much better than any book I have read by this author. Ms. Feather was truly inspired when she wrote this. Alex will live on in my daydreams.

It all started promising...but the story is just to simple...there's no sophistication at all...everything's happening to fast...from the moment they saw each other they're in deep love...ehmmm...c'mon...I really missed the anticipation, that moment of waiting for the story to develop,the whole climax thing that makes everything worth waiting for,that makes you spend all night reading,brings characters a bit closer...so sorry, but it is just not worth your time...

This book was the perfect combination of historical narrative and romance. Alex and Ginny are well developed characters whose conflicting emotions of love and hostility make for a great read. You should definitely buy this book if you enjoy historical romances spiced with lots of action.

4.0 out of 5 stars English civil war1645 30 Nov. 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unusual to find Cromwell vs. Charles Ist. However this develops in the rural islands and you witness the cavalier under the control of a known parliamentarian General come to seize the estate of a long established family... very real. I know it happened to mine. Widows are fair game but the romance was understandable. What I object to is the American Civil war costume on the cover... poor choice... two hundred years off track. Publishing
Should be scolded roundly. Henrietta Maria's court dresses are gorgeous including her riding habits. Miss Feather writing deserves accurate eye candy covers.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book amazing 13 Jun. 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This author is excellent when it comes to details. They are never tedious but color the scene with emotions and clarification. This story was interesting and believable. Tears and laughter were experienced during the course of reading this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars In Love with the Enemy 22 Jan. 2017
By Christine McDaniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When Colonel Alex Marshal of the Rebellion forces takes as prisoner Virginia Courtney, daughter of John Redfern, Royalist, of the Isle of Wight, widow of Giles Courtney, he feels an immediate attraction to her defiant grey eyes and slim figure. Against their will, they fall deeply in love, feeling each has found his soul mate, but each is convinced his political cause is the true one.

This author is a master when weaving plot twists, characters, and events leading to a final battle to determine which government will reign. The reader is introduced to family members, learns of their disputes, and becomes attached to two remarkable personalities. Their final obstacle is a real doosey and involves moving to a new continent. By book's end, our lovers are happily united and looking forward to a peaceful future.

My only criticism of this book is its length. By dividing this book into two sections, the reader would know that the first half is political and the second half personal.
3.0 out of 5 stars Too long (2.5 stars) 26 Dec. 2016
By Georgia Blue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I appreciated the setting of this book; the English civil war is not a common backdrop for many historical romances. Having said that, though, I didn't think this book would ever end! I got to the point where I really didn't care if Alex and Ginny got their happily ever after. Ginny never grew on me--she seemed stubborn and childish. I didn't see what her attraction was for Alex, other than her easy virtue. I realize this was war time, but she seemed almost too willing to basically become a camp follower. I'm puzzled by all the 4 & 5 star reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely loved every page. So many twists and turns. Jane Feather is one of my favorite writers. 23 Sept. 2014
By Betty Wilson - Published on Amazon.com

This historical story is one I've read in other novels. Jane Feather immediately had me enthralled with the true love of General Marshall and Virginia Courtney. I loved this book and will re-read in the future.
