About this audiobook

A hero of the crusades, Dominic le Sabre has returned in glory and in triumph to claim his reward: the beautiful Saxon bride awarded to him by the conqueror king. But Lady Margaret of the Blackthorne cannot yield to the bold Norman invader. The beloved daughter of a sacred tribe of the Celtic mystics, she fears an ancient curse that could bring further turmoil to her battle-scarred land...and sorrow to her marriage bed.

With a word, the lady could turn her wedding into war. But there awaits in the noble knight's embrace a promise of passion unbound - and a love that neither violence nor treachery can tear asunder, a love both invincible and...untamed.

    Okay, the ending was period apt but it did annoy me. She was a lion tamer working in a circus and he's just inherited it and isn't sure what he's going to do with it. When they meet sparks fly but they're not sure if they can come to terms with each other and the lives they want to lead.Not sure how this would be fixed today any better than the original end, alas.

    A weak story with unlikable characters.

    A nice little piece of fluff. I found some story lines a bit weak (the main male lead is supposed to be a master tactician, but to win the love of his wife he decides to gentle her like a hunting falcon with sexual seduction, rather than just get to know her, find out what she really wants/likes/needs, and give it to her) but they were necessary to add the spice to the story. I liked both main characters and enjoyed their story. I will continue with the series, but then I normally do.Under the name Ann Maxwell, Lowell wrote some of my favorite books (Fire Dancer & Timeshadow Rider). While this book was a fun little read/listen, it is far from that caliber.

    For his bravery during the Crusades, Dominic Le Sabre, a Norman Knight, is rewarded with a Saxon bride and the land that comes with her. Lady Margaret Blackthorne is willing to do her duty to keep the peace but fears that she will never have her husband’s love.

    While the plot and romance have potential, both suffer from the writing tropes and norms typical of the 1990s. Lowell uses flowery descriptions and euphemisms, which put a damper on Meg and Dominic’s sexual chemistry and the falcon metaphor results in Dominic coming across as imperious and overbearing rather than sensual and seductive.

    Dominic and Meg are engaging overall, although Dominic’s obsession with having a son grates on the nerves after a while and Meg is much too good and sweet to be a truly interesting heroine. Moreover, the identity of the Blackthorne traitor is obvious from the start.

    Nevertheless, the secondary characters are fleshed out nicely and it is actually my interest in Duncan and Simon’s stories that had me re-reading this installment in lieu of continuing with the series.

    This was a fun adventure with treachery running amok with a cold Lord, Dominic, who marries Meg, for her land and heirs.

    She is a healer and is cursed not to bear sons unless out of love.

    This is simply a love story about a cold knight who woes his lady against all the odds.

    I love stories that leave me feeling all warm inside and this is one of them.

    This is the story of Stanton Rourke, a mercenary, and his childhood friend, Clarisse Carrington. Amnesia, some suspense when one of the characters is targeted to be killed, and reconnecting with familiar characters in Jacobsville, Texas are all elements of what could have been an interesting story. Unfortunately, poor writing with a lot of repetition made this a book I did not enjoy. Review based on an ARC received from NetGalley.
