Commanded by the French Duke The plot seemed interesting enough at first glance and being the sucker I am for historicals of all varieties I dove in I kind of wish I hadn t.The book wasn t bad, at least not outright It was pretty ok in the beginning, a bit confusing if I m honest with how it opened and honestly the way the heroine reacted to the knights went from understandable to ridiculous in no time And to have the Prince Edward hit her, even though she had turned hysterical by then really bugged me, but so that the hero just it brushed away like it was nothing even though he regretted not being able to move her away from Edward in time to soften the blow Him staying with her till she regained consciousness I guess was supposed to make up for that flaw, and although given the time era and the fact Edward was basically a temperamental little boy the whole book explained why he hit her it was still something that bugged me.Guilhem s sister felt like a flat character to me And the heroine Oh boy Half way through the book I was so frustrated with her childish antics or tantrums, or whatever she said to Guilhem By half way through the book she was feeling like one of th Non del tutto risolto La cosa pi divertente stata capire come mai i sovrani Enrico ed Eleonora avevano un figlio ed erede di nome Edoardo E questo perch , senza guardare le date, pensavo ad Enrico II ed Eleonora d Aquitania, ma naturalmente bastata una ricerca su Google per risolvere il problema.L iniz A broken axel on a narrow bridge put Lady Alinor of Claverstock and her cartload of abbey grain right in the path of the formidable Guilhem, Duc d Attalins Lady Alinor is not one to back down from a challenge, whether working at the nunnery, nursing the sick, or defending the abbey s grain against Prince Edward s soldiers Mastering her feelings around the strong and stoic Guilhem might be too difficult a task for even her strong will Guilhem is immediately drawn to Alinor s fiery spirit all the so after he happily learns she isn t a real nun but he daren t make her his own because of a secret shame staining his past The two are drawn together as Queen Eleanor and Prince Edward s political web closes in around them Finally, their mutual passion is too potent to ignore Medieval historical romance can be a tricky genre for the modern author to negotiate These days, the hero must be than simply handsome, strong, and rich He must also be intelligent, compassionate and, if not actually a feminist, at least willing to concede that women should be treated with unflagging respect This is a tall order for a thirteenth century knight, even a fictional one Similarly, A good story with a likeable hero and heroine Guilhem was strong and honourable and Alinor was courageous and loyal, even prepared to protect her friends in the face of impossible odds Prince Edward s display of violence towards the heroine was a little disturbing but I suppose it was in keeping with what is known of the Prince s sometimes short temper, and Guilhem came through for her The historical characterisation of the Prince Edward and the setting had historical accuracy, which was good The first 3 4 of the book consisted of a strong plot but a sub plot was introduced two thirds of the way through and was not explored fully to a satisfactory conclusion The book ended suddenly I do feel that other areas could have been explored fully For example, the come uppance for the wicked step mother and step brother Although we know they were called to account by Queen E It was okay Some parts moved along pretty well Some parts were lacking Not too crazy about the dialogue. Horrible Just horrible Incredible lack of characterization Current day language in the mouths of medieval people I finished it by skimming because I just couldn t stand it The ending was abrupt and I didn t realize for a moment that it had in fact ended Just ugh Passionate, poignant and pleasing best describe Fuller s newest medieval romance RT Book Reviews.
