    Fiery haired Gilliane de Lacey was as proud as she was beautiful She defied the King of England himself when he commanded her to wed a lord she despised The one man she did want she could not have as a husband Richard of Rivaux's passion for her had ignited her burning need but he was honor bound to wed another Yet as he defied death to rescue Gilliane from royal wrath and as he drew her into the perilous swirl of conflict between England and Normandy Gilliane and Richard knew that nothing would ever stop them from risking all for love and giving all to desireWe jump another generation and now follow Catherine and Guy’s son though his adventures This book is somewhat different in tone from the two previous books Richard is not yet a leader of men like his father and grandfather were and he feels he is always under his father’s shadow He doesn’t have an easy relationship with him as both like to have their own way and is thinking of supporting a different claimant to England’s throne Richard wants to support Robert of Gloucester and his father feels duty bound to honour his oath to the Empress Matilda Richard’s defiance of his father has even leaded him to negotiate a betrothal between him and another noble house against his father’s wishesGilliane de Lacey has just lost her older brother who was attacked by a neighbour who wants their lands She mistakes Richard’s approaching forces for her brother’s killer only to realize her mistake Richard was her brother’s friend and can’t help feel a bit responsible for Gilliane and her family since England is at the time a lawless place without a uniform authority and likely they will be attacked by Stephen’s men soon He also feels very attracted to her and makes that fact knownRichard is unable to offer Gilliane marriage even after he realizes he would like to make her his wife because he bound to another and is next to impossible to dissolve betrothal bonds Even despairing of their happily ever after I thought Mills introduced them importance of church and it’s power in society very well in this situation Gilliane struggles with her situation of being Richard’s leman she is a young lady of good family and her moral code goes against what she feels In fact on two occasions she is publicly humiliated for being what she is to him and on the second situation she is attacked and almost killed for it Although she is accepted by his family who treat her like a daughter she feels bitterly that she can never be his wife When she finally becomes pregnant she refuses to have the stigma attached to her child and chooses to runaway and marry another to give her child a nameGilliane and Richard’s life apart is not easy for any of them and sometimes it felt that Gilliane might have made the wrong the decision she made her child legitimate but her actions brought heartache to others as her new husband was never happy and that reflected on others In a way both of them Richard and Gilliane are a stark contrast to the previous two generations They are not loud determined to get their way against all odds They wait and resist till they find a way to get their heart’s desire It surprised me at first to find them so different and it took me a while to warm up to them and understand them but I guess now I doGrade B

    My first book by this author And what a lovely novel set in medieval times Beautifully written and with such passion it is difficult to let if go 4 stars because unfortunately I did not care for a certain part of the book But still it is wonderfully written and I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series

  3. Joano Joano says:

    The third novel in the series this is the story of Guy and Catherine's son Richard from the second novel and Gilliane de Lacey This was a great follow up after fire and steelThe novel began with a misunderstanding and love began to spark immediately afterThe author continues to do what she does best well drawn characters with depth great secondary characters and description of 12th century Europe She has shown how limited the options for women are in that time Without family husband or money it is difficult for a woman to survive on her own without harassmentThe forbidden love between Richard and Gilliane was well written and made me feel sad The way it was written was well done and didn't make me feel anybody was cheating on anyoneWarning strong level of domestic violence in the last 25% of the novel It's not pleasant but necessary to get the story moving

    35 starsGood plot good characters the story has everything it needsBut every conversation started with words nay aye and tis I know it should have been like that because it was talked about at that timeIt becomes so confusing at some point it was hard for me to concentrate what I was reading literallyBecause it started to annoy me and with that it distracts me from the bookAnd because of that I awarded less stars otherwise the book deserves

  5. Angelyn Schmid Angelyn Schmid says:

    The background of this book is very complex rich and conflict oriented The hero living in the shadow of his noble father's glory the heroine trapped in ignominy of her status She might have ended her days as his concubine under any other period of English history but these were disturbed times in the late Norman periodRandom note the very best cover in historical romance I wish I knew who the artist is
