I enjoyed MacGregor's Fellowhip of the sword series the best so far of her works. A Dark Champion is full of intrigue with vivid characters. Great read.

Kinley MacGregor aka Sherrilyn Kenyon is such an amazing author! This is book #2 of her "Brotherhood of the Sword" series, which also ties into "The MacAllisters" series.

Stryder is one of my favorites, and I recommend this book to anyone with a heartbeat!

Stryder of Blackmoor is a legend among men, and the man every woman wants to tame...except Lady Rowena. The exquisite beauty shuns the powerful knight, as she does all warriors, for their world is madness. And yet, the pain in Stryders eyes fills her with tenerness and desire. Does Rowena know that noble Stryder, duty bound to live a life without love, is constantly challenged by her sensual allure?

I enjoy all the Kinnley MacGregor books...if you like historical romance novels...this is a good one.

The beautiful Rowena detests war and all who fight it - and would never allow a knight like Stryder of Blackmoor into her heart. But even the renowned Lady of Love needs a champion...

Excellent book! Stryder of Blackmoor, the ultimate hero, is unwillingly paired with Rowena, the Lady of Love and ultimate medieval hippie. LOL! While he's out making war against all who would take advantage of anyone weaker, she's making music and singing out against knights and war, and trying to rally everyone to make love not war.

Beautiful but naive lady Rowena has developed a reputation as a man hater for denouncing war, and especially the knights that fight them. Until she meets her hard-headed match Stryder, and learns the true meaning of the price that has been paid for the freedoms that she unthankfully enjoys. Stryder, tormented by years of imprisonment during the crusades is sworn to never open his heart again and spend the rest of his life with his brotherhood defending those who can not defend themselves. Until he meets Rowena and the ice around his hears slowly begins to thaw. You slowly learn the haunted past that makes him so cold towards Rowena in the beginning and that he actually has a much deeper side than anyone knew. This is a well-written book, with plenty of unexpected twists and turns and well-developed characters and story lines. The tension between Rowena and Stryder keeps your attention and even throws in a little humour here an there. All in all a very well written story.

King Henry, Queen Eleanor, and Rowena's uncle plot to throw the two together (without their knowledge, of course), in hopes that they will marry. Rowena being the heiress to lands strategic to England, and Stryder - who is one of the few deadliest knights strong enough to hold the lands in the name of the King.

In the beginning Stryder and Rowena resist their attraction to each other, but spending more and more time together, they eventually become intimate and admit their feelings. Along the way are several murders, attempts on Stryder's life, a tournament, and a singing contest.

Fearless men, their allegiance is to one another, to the oppressed, and to the secret society known as the Brotherhood of the Swordand they must never surrender to the passionate yearnings of their noble hearts.

A Lady of Love

Beautiful, peace-loving Rowena knows that Stryder of Blackmoor is a warrior, and is therefore a man to be shunned.

But something burns in the eyes of this powerful knight that she has never seen in others of his kind: a tenderness, and a need to love and be loved. Yet to enter his world would be madnessagainst every principle by which she has lived her lifeso she must resist the yearning that would draw her into his arms.

A Man of War

Duty bound to battle for right, Stryder has never desired the comforts of home and hearthuntil he gazed upon the exquisite face and form of the incomparable Rowena. He dares not succumb to her sensuous charms, for Stryder is a man sworn to know no love. But when treachery and danger threaten, the noble knight must stand as the unsuspecting lady's championthough his actions could cost him his honor, his heart. . . and his forbidden dream of happiness.
