Genre: Romance
Book Type: Mass Market Paperback

Helpful Score: 3


It was an enjoyable book as a whole, but one I will not keep. The first third of this book is amazing. It was love at first site for the fearsome Black Lyon and his Lioness, the woman who tames him.

HOWEVER, Jude Deveraux has unfortunately written a book about misunderstandings, and mistrust. A writer can write about those things, but very few can nail it with a crafty tale and overlook those individual things and mold them into a story. At times the book went too quick, then too slow. But I did enjoy the love that was shared between the two while the big misunderstandings were not the head of the story. This medieval does not compare to a Julie Garwood.
