    This was a frustrating book, so full of contradictions. I neither totally loved it nor entirely hated it, and it did improve towards the end, but there were a lot of things which annoyed me. For a start the heroine Breanna. I think with hindsight that her characterization was inconsistent. She's supposed to be a strong and independent woman: in fact so much so that she does not even have an Steward, an official who was essential to the day to day running of a Medieval estate.

I neither totally loved it nor entirely hated it, and it did improve towards the end, but there were a lot of things which annoyed me. For a start the heroine Breanna. I think with hindsight that her characterization was inconsistent. She's supposed to be a strong and independent woman: in fact so much so that she does not even have an Steward, an official who was essential to the day to day running of a Medieval estate. Instead she does all the accounts herself, and takes a personal interest in the finer points of farming. Something which Medieval Aristocrats would not have been personally involved in. So she's stressed out an doesn't have much time: but doesn't need a man's help, thankyou very much! She's also supposed to be so 'feisty' that she punches people and hits them with benches (which would mean she also had exceptional physical strength): yet she was apparently 'ruled' by a husband for years, and is virtually helpless against the machinations of the villain. I don't accept that her helplessness was the result of repressive social customs which stripped her of power. As a noble widow, she should not have lost everything: she would be entitled to dower, her own inheritance. Contrary to what the characters thought if her child was a girl, she would also have been eligible to inherit: Eleanor of Aquitaine inherited the Duchy of Aquitaine from her father. The passage about the villain trying to undermine her with allegations of witchcraft really got to me: spreading rumours that she was a witch because she put benches in the chapel. Seriously? Like Medieval people thought chairs were of the Devil or something. Even the part about holding prayers in English did not entirely ring true, unless it was done for the benefit of the servants, since most nobles would have spoken Norman French as their first language. Yet for all this, a character very publicly announcing that he rejected the tenants of Christianity and making some rather profane statements was no problem (but putting benches in the chapel was WITCHCRAFT!) As another reviewer pointed out, this novel was given a 'historical' feel with the characters speaking a type of pseudo-archaic English: 'mayhap' and 'methinks' and 'ye'. I suppose that deserves some merit for effort, although the language was still peppered with modern Americanisms such as 'whomever' and 'smart'. As with other such novels the business of the characters was of such import as to warrant personal involvement by the royal family: which seems odd. Even if a claimant to the estate was a friend of the King, Henry II ruled most of England and a good proportion of France: you'd think he'd have more important things to worry about with than who the widow of a country baron married, and who owned a castle surrounded by a few farms. Yet for all that: I can understand why such content was included. It was necessary to build the story. Which was did have some well-written scenes with plenty of adventure. Even the romance between Brianna and Royce was interesting , if rather explosive at times. Their tempestuous relationship allowed for some comical moments, if nothing else. After about the midway point I cared enough to keep reading to see how it ended. So I suppose this book is a good choice if you want a vaguely romance which is vaguely historical and isn't too taxing. Its not bad for a first novel, either.

    I find the Middle Ages fascinating and Rae does an excellent job of bringing them to life with her characters and setting. Lady Breanna is a strong and witty heroine. Her dialogue pulls me into the story. Royce is a worthy hero and who can find a patient man? He is a nice balance to Breanna's spunk and has a rugged handsomeness. The tension starts on the first page and continues throughout the pages. Rae crafts love-to-hate antagonists that amp up the conflict.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a pretty quick read. The plot moved quickly and there was some great snappy dialogue. The characters were great, especially Breanna. My only problem is that the romance happened really suddenly. Like all of the sudden they were in love and I'm not sure how they got there. It's a minor thing and I did really love the interactions of the two characters in question. Recommended if you want a quick, fun, historical fiction read!

    This is a wonderful story of love, acceptance, humility, and faith. I was pulled into the story from the first page and loved watching Breanna and Royce's uneasy alliance grow into devoted love. Oliva Rae made the Middle Ages come alive with wonderful descriptions and period dialogue that I could almost hear being being spoken. A fast read, I finished it in two sittings and have already purchased book 2! This is a wonderful story of love, acceptance, humility, and faith.

    GREAT PLOTS The author can be assured of gaining more readers if this is an example of her fine writing. The characters were exactly what you would expect of the age they were set in. Plots within plots made this an exciting read and one I would love to read more of. I do not want to give the story away and ruin your enjoyment of reading this book, but I for one cannot wait to read the follow on story. Great writing!

    I didn't make it through this book - I found it really hard to get into, soldiered on until the end of chapter 6, and then put it down. It's entirely possible it gets better after that. I found the characters flat: Lady Durville is independent and determined, Canwell is... loyal?, and Lord de Beaufou is conniving and so obviously evil that it's hard to believe anyone doesn't see it. Also, Lord de Beaufou's plan, which he explains in chapter one, is to frame Lady Durville for adultery (with him) I didn't make it through this book - I found it really hard to get into, soldiered on until the end of chapter 6, and then put it down. It's entirely possible it gets better after that. I found the characters flat: Lady Durville is independent and determined, Canwell is... loyal?, and Lord de Beaufou is conniving and so obviously evil that it's hard to believe anyone doesn't see it. Also, Lord de Beaufou's plan, which he explains in chapter one, is to frame Lady Durville for adultery (with him) and witchcraft, forcing her to marry him so he can get his hands on her estate. This premise doesn't really make any sense to me - even if Lord de Beaufou succeeds, he'll end up married to a notorious adulterer and witch. Perhaps he just plans to put about that she is one if she refuses him, but he definitely says he already has been, so I don't really understand. The only really sensible angle is that he plans to murder her immediately after marriage, but in that case, why would she accept his offer instead of fleeing? Into the middle of this scheme steps Royce Canwell, who was sent by Lady Durville's (presumably dead) brother to help her. He is extremely obstinate sometimes, even when he's supposed to be winning her favor - for example, when she calls him out on not praying at Mass, and demands that he say his prayers in future, he flatly refuses and walks away, making her chase after him and eventually snap at him, when he could have just admitted up front that he didn't know them and saved everyone four pages of back-and-forth. Shortly after this point I put the book down, because I found the two protagonists so unlikeable and irritating that I was hoping Lord de Beaufou would murder them both. There's one other thing that made this book difficult to get through for me: It's written in Ye Olde English, so there's a lot of "mayhap" and "nay" and replacement of "it" with "'t", which makes the book read like a trashy fantasy novel. It's supposed to imitate the late old English / early middle English of the period, but it isn't anywhere close to it. A lot of the biblical references use the King James Version for the "historical flavor", including Lady Durville quoting Matthew 6:7 as it appears in the KJV, but the KJV is from hundreds of years later and a middle English translation of this scripture (if it had existed, which would have been strange, since Latin was the liturgical language of the time I think) would have looked nothing like it. In general, the use of language is quite ahistorical and distracting; I think the book would have been better off written in modern English, which would have been just as ahistorical but much easier to follow. Anyway, overall: I don't think I would recommend this book unless you're really into historical romances. The setting isn't particularly richly rendered, the story (as far as I read) is largely historical fiction set-pieces ((view spoiler)[non-fatal arrow to the shoulder (hide spoiler)] , town composed entirely of a blacksmith and a farm, (view spoiler)[unexplained bandit raid (hide spoiler)] , that sort of thing), and the characters seem somehow listless, like they know they're in a book and are plodding towards the conclusion they're already expecting. Caveat lector: I did not finish this book. I got about 25% of the way through. It's entirely possible that it gets much better afterwards, and there's no shortage of reviews that were perfectly happy with it, so take what I've written here with a grain of salt. It just wasn't working for me.

She is still talking to the man when her husband's cousin arrives and tells her he is here to marry her and take over the Keep. She introduces the warrior as her manager and tells the cousin she has no need of a marriage. She soon finds out her new manager has turned his life away from the Lord. Can she bring him back to faith? Royce Canwell leaves the Holy Land to go to Durville Keep. He is broken in spirit and in need of healing. He has sworn an oath to make sure all is well at the Keep and to protect the sister of his mentor. When he arrives he finds his lady is in more trouble than is expected.

    This book was an easy read. There's romance, intrigue, and danger woven throughout the story. As described, it is a medieval romance, so there is medieval elements, including some medieval language, and lots of romance elements, such as the broken hero and willful heroine unable to love because of class differences. If you're looking for a vacation read, this is probably a good one. That being said, there were several elements I didn't love. 1. Lady Breanna 2.

Royce Canwell You'll notice those are the main characters. So why didn't I love them? Lady Breanna I didn't love because she was stubborn and spoiled. Unreasonable to the max, she demands respect from Royce without knowing him. I don't know if the author wanted her to be the epitome of the romantic image of a Lady in the past, but she was. She softens slightly, which is why I can say I "like" this book rather than love or really like it. The same applies to Royce Canwell, who falls in love with Breanna almost upon seeing her. I'm really not sure why-maybe he enjoys being whipped? I don't know, but his story did give me a few more points in his favor. So, I left this book feeling mixed. I enjoyed the romance and the action. I enjoyed a few elements of the main characters. And I will admit I sat up late and read this book to the end, so it must be good enough for what I mentioned earlier: a light read.

You pointed me back to God who has given me Salvation. I am most blessed...”

    I forced myself to finish it I really wanted to like this book because I appreciate the emphasis on faith and scripture. But I did not like either the hero or heroine. I can’t understand how a supposedly strong Christian woman could be repeatedly physically harmful to the hero and he acted like that was just because she was so strong of character! What? How can the author justify her hitting & punching him? Also, it was very tedious— he kept saying how she could never love a unworthy peasant and I forced myself to finish it I really wanted to like this book because I appreciate the emphasis on faith and scripture.

I’m so disappointed this series wasn’t as I hoped and expected.

    I considered not finishing several times, but I'm a book finisher so I just slowly chipped away at it. I accepted the very heavy handed Christian agenda as just part of this particular story (though I felt a little beaten over the head by it). But even beyond that the story was just a disappointment. The characters were slow-witted (and the heroine was a hypocritical harpy on top of it), and the plot was painfully transparent. Subtlety and nuance are not its strong suits.

    Action & romance in a book that keeps the the plot moving! Enjoyable read. If you like a happy ending & a plot that close nicely, making for an easy read, then this could be the book for you. The characters are nicely drawn & have quite believable characteristics. An enjoyable historical romp with action & romance, a dastardly villain & last minute rescue. Of course there is the anticipated happy ending to round everything off.

    More romance than historical novel A lightweight novel, with a romantic view of medieval history. Modern attitudes are coupled with archaic speech, and the plot devices require you to swallow a substantial helping of disbelief. Enjoy it as a clean romance, but don’t expect to learn anything about the times or - in this first book in the series - about the Templars. For me it was a disappointment.

    This story has a strong, fiercely independent woman as a leading character. I liked her from the very beginning and my spirit chafed with hers at all the restricting influences she was up against in her time, culture and circumstances. This is a shorter story than I had expected and some of it was a bit predictable; nevertheless, I found it entertaining.

    Help comes from praying. I wasn't sure about the Templars and how all that would fit into a good story, but this was actually very good. It showed how he lost his way during the wars and how he found his way back to God. I like that, as I believe He always finds us and brings us back into His care. Help comes from praying.

    I haven't heard any Christian fiction for awhile. I chose this one because of the time period in which it was written. It was a quick read.. The story moved along well and the characters where enjoyable. I especially like the scripture reading at the beginning of each chapter. Editing could have been more thorough.

    Typical Christian Romance This novel is no more and no less than most romances. It is free of bad language and sex so it stays true to its description as a Christian novel.

    The book was okay to read as I think I am very critical in saying that I was hoping that the author wrote in the same style as Bernard Cornwell and Matthew Harffy (my two favourite authors). Overall the book was good so I would give it three stars. The author does have a very grasp on their writing style, I did like the book and the characters.

    Lady Breanna Durville is not happy when Royce Canwell shows up at her castle. However, she can't deny that he may be her only hope of escaping the clutches of the despicable Lord de Beaufou. I enjoyed this historical novel that reminded me how different times were in the days of castles and keeps, lords and ladies, and the precarious state of women during that time.

    Non stop adventure A smart and strong heroin, mystery characters, knights, and religion mark this early English novel which captivates interest throughout. A chapter from the next book in the series looks promising.
