Lips Lillyth was just as terrible as Guy She was so nstable as a character The Twenty-Third Man (Mrs. Bradley, innocent then seductive na ve but then manipulative she loves no other but Guy but she cheats on him constantly She was so deeply unlikable as a character I d only just started this novel when my husband asked mef The Handbag Book Of Girly Emergencies it was a good book and I actually said I don t think that I m going to liket and I ll probably stop soon I did make t to the end because I found the writing compelling and while I didn t like either Guy or Lillyth I enjoyed the telling of their storyOverall I was a little sadistic with this novel hating the characters but enjoying the telling of their story I genuinely do not think that this should be classified as a romance novel just Medieval Fiction The romance was undermined so often that even the characters didn t seem to want to be together It was just a really brutal very sexual novel set n Saxon England Let s leave Sweet Liberty it at that Premise Lillyths married against her will to a buggering rapey son of a female dog who leaves her bleeding on their wedding night then rides off the next day to meet the Normans who have Smack invaded Guy de Montgomerys a Norman knight Night of the Living Dead Christian in service to William the Conueror who comes to Lillyth s family estate after they get the news that all their men are dead The women see the wisdom of surrendering and Guy claims Lillyth Natch she comes to love him even though he s a rapey bigamist who hits her Three stars 3 12 stars As far as Henley books got was ok to good This was not really a happy story But I m sure The New World Order its hearts and flowers compared to whatt was really like when the Normans conuered England Re read of one of my old favorites.

While I enjoy Virginia Henley I just didn t understand Lilith as a character It was like she went from King Solomons Carpet idiot to woman to seductress to temptress todiot again It was like the lines just didn t match the character It was my least favorite henley book so far but a uick read even though this wasn t the edition I read Halflings (Halflings, it was a red cover and longer than 285 pages but still the same book maybe longer version not sure This Virginia Henley books shorter than most of her others but t s still fantasticI enjoy the connection between the two main characters I like the tension the slow build to trust the fragility of the loveWith each reread I find myself catching my breath and eagerly devouring the words like Too Close for Comfort (Jo Birmingham it s the first timeA full five stars To met has been just one of the worst romance I have ever read I hated Lyllith so much that I was desperately hoping that when she returned to Guy after having spent weeks Trauma in the bed of another man he would have had the spirit to slam the door on her faceConsidering that Henley wrote one of my favorite book The pirate and the pagan plus other beloved books such as Tempted and Enslavedt was astonishing to read such a book I ve read a lot of Henley s books before GR Her style The Dark Lord Trilogy (Star Wars: The Dark Lord Trilogy, is to the point and seems almost barbaric after reading a lot of the modern fluff historical romances The men are ALWAYS ALPHA SEXs graphic and Speech-making and Presentation Made Easy in abundance VILLEINS are swiftly taken care of even though they shadow the plot You ll always come away very SATISFIED I was very shocked towards the end of this book It s a first for me that a heroineyou have to read the story absolutely loved this one though Happiness the Mindful Way i readt 2 years ago and dislike.

D t love a besotted hero when The Dig i see one and guy was than dat he loved lilyth madly she was one stunning heroine and men fell over her left and right she was divine dilsiked the fact dat guy did not tell her he was married before making love The Bully it shud have been her choice the book lost one star for me when she whored herself to robert der was a difference wid guy bcoz she loved him she did not love robert and felt disgusted each time he wud tell her she shu I have read so many Regency Romances that they ve made me overly sensitive to Medieval Romances I ve been conditioned to think that t s scandalous for a woman to remove her gloves before a man so reading about a man sodomising his poor wife on their wedding night was uite a shock I don t think that there The Kingdom (Fargo Adventure, is much to say about the plot It was simple enough butt undermined Johnny Came Home itself constantly and so madet hard to really enjoy It was a romance novel but the constant affairs and the sleeping around just really undermined the main relationship between Guy and Lillyth I certainly didn t champion Guy and Lillyth throughout the novel they didn t seem to want to be together anyway and they were genuinely horrible people Guy de Montgomery seemed like the perfect hero Tall dark and handsome A brave commanding warrior But throughout the novel his chacteristics changed and he turned out to be a bigamist who fake married his new English girlfriend hit her when she didn t please him and whose general mantra was If she doesn t let me then I ll just force her You can read this next line with as much sarcasm as you d like What a man 3Should we therefore feel sorry for his English Rose girlfriend No old Loose.
