Has anyone read her books? What did you think? They look really good, I've read great reviews!

I haven't read any of them, but I have her book Rivals for the Crown on my wishlist. It sounds like it will be a good one, but I'm wondering it is going to be more romancey than historical fiction. I'd be interested in someone's thoughts on her books too!

Valli,  wondered too if her books would be more romancey, but they do sound really good!

Here's her website:  http://www.kathleengivens.com/index.shtml

Several of the blurbs connected with the books are from romance review magazines or associations so, I would tend to think they are leaning toward the historical romance genre.

Thanks for the link Charlie! I didn't realize that Rivals for the Crown was the 2nd book in a series. I'm probably going to give this series a shot. I like the idea of a book about Edward I and Wallace. If I ever get it, I'll let you guys know about it.
