Product Description

Review

"The best in romantic fiction!"
"-Rendezvous"

From the Inside Flap

The Dove...
She'd been bought for a strip of land, then abandoned: a bartered bride, married by proxy, determined to wreak revenge. As innocent Sara Bishop she'd paid dearly for freedom from her cruel, mocking family. As flame-haired, jade-eyed Sabre Wilde, she would scandalize Queen Elizabeth's court as she set out to seduce her unknown husband, become his mistress--and make him her slave.
The Hawk...
The Queen's favorite, called The Sea God, his white teeth flashed in his bronze face as his deep, virile voice boomed orders to his men. He branded Sabre with his searing kiss and his masterful touch, not even aware she was already his wife. Captain Shane Hawkhurst knew how to command, how to subdue and ravage an enemy, but was he prepared to be caught in passion's merciless snare by a fiery beauty who ruled his heart and inflamed his senses?

I agree to a certain extent with the previous review. While I don't think this book is near as good as the other 3, (and I did like the Dragon and the Jewel) it definitely held my attention. Things were very hot in the bedroom and he did not cheat on his wife because his mistress was his wife. Virginia Henley is the incomparable queen of hot, exciting romance!

If you love reading about Medieval times then you will love this book, it quite authentic with the detail of the period The knight of course is the most Handsome and strong hero and its a bit long winded how he actually wins fair lady but it is only fiction and I enjoyed it a lot

After reading 'Henley's 'Pirate and the Pagen, Raven and the Rose, and the Falcon and the Flower', I found that 'Hawk and Dove' scored the same as 'Dragon and Jewel' on my 'read again only if on a remote island and there are no natives to talk to'. Virginia Henley is one of my favorite authors! I loved all the characters in the three novels mentioned above, however, as I stated in reviewing 'Dragon and Jewel', I was disappointed by 'Henley', but alas, I own 'Pirate and Pagan (disapproved of the adultery plot), Raven and Rose, and Falcon and Flower', and they are my cherished 'dime store purchases'. Maybe I disliked this novel because at the time I was reading 'Hawk and the Dove', I kept thinking, if that was my husband cheating on me with me, I would slip poison in his wine goblet.

This was a very disappointing read. The character of Sara (Sabre) Bishop started out so well and by the end of the book , I disliked her so much, such a brat, spoiled and immature. The best moment in the book was when Elizabeth 1 called Sabre a 'notorious trollop', brilliant. The Hero , Shane was no better for putting up with Sabre's behaviour and being so casual about the 'wife ' he married by proxy, awful

This is the first Virginia Henley book I read. I bought it one time in a bookstore, forgot about it and then a month or so later decided to read it because I was all out of others to read. Once I started the book I couldn't put it down it totaly captivated me!! I kept thinking to myself why hadn't I started this sooner? well since reading this book I've read all her others and never been disapointed!!!!I'd recomend her books too anyone!

This was awful! A complete waste of time and money. The characters were selfish and self absorbed. I do not know who is worse--Ms. Henley for actually thinking up these characters or me for actually wasting my time and reading about them. I think in parts of the book Ms. Henley tried to make it like Whitney, My Love. Not even close! Back to the drawing board, Ms. Henley!

I read an excerpt of this book in Joanne Redd's Chasing a Dream. I was young, impressionable and eager to see what happened to the promising heroine Sara Bishop (Sabre Wilde). It was a fast-paced read, but rather disjointed. Everything the heroine did seemed to be due to her desire to prove what a colossal brat she was, and the hero was worse! Henley, like almost all historical authors who have tried to tackle the personality of Elizabeth I, made her out to be a vain and vituperative woman. At least the historical innaccuracies were not as glaring in this book as they were in her others.
