Product description

Product Description

A maiden to be saved . . .

During the murderous assault on the village of Vaux, little “Ana” lost all she knew. Suddenly, out of the burning wreckage, a young man appeared and rescued her from the horrors of the night. He proved to be a squire in a company of knights, on their way to join the Crusades. At a neighboring village, he delivered her into the care of a peasant couple who promised to love her. Before departing, he gifted her with something to remember him by . . . the silver cross from around his neck.

A wrong to be righted . . .

After a decade of fighting in the east, Sir Royce de Warrene returns to England a celebrated knight. But he soon discovers the terrible mistake he made on that long-ago night. The orphan girl was no peasant child, but an heiress of noble blood — Lady Juliana Mandeville — and he deprived her of her birthright. He is charged with a quest — to find her at once and restore her to her grandfather — by order of the king!

Love to be fulfilled, fated long ago . . .

Now grown to womanhood, the stunningly beautiful and saucy “Ana” refuses to believe the knight when he disrupts her wedding day, intent on taking her from those she loves and to deliver her to strangers at the English court. She grips the silver cross she wears, wishing her gallant squire could rescue her once more. Although she cannot remember his face clearly and never knew his name, she has not forgotten the night he saved her so long ago . . .

The synopsis covers the story fairly comprehensively, so I won't repeat it.
There were good and bad aspects about this book.
Firstly, the good:
Unlike a lot of HRs I have read recently, this author appears to know her stuff. I'm no expert on the mediaeval period, but I didn't pick up on anything glaringly anachronistic, and Kirkwood writes informatively and authoritatively of life in the time of the Crusades.
Mostly free of typos and formatting problems. (I feel I have to mention this in nearly all reviews now, because so many e-books fall down badly in these areas.)
Loved the hero Sir Royce de Warrene - definitely a chivalrous knight!
There is some sex in the book, but not a lot and it does have to do with the plot.
And now, the downsides:
The pacing of the book could be tightened up a great deal, and it could benefit from shortening in my opinion. At no point did I feel like I just HAD to read the next chapter to find out what happened; it was too easy to put the book down and return to it a day later. Too much of the story relied on lack of communication, a weak plot device at the best of times.
I loathed the heroine, Ana. It seemed like she spent three quarters of the book being a lying, whingeing, stealing brat.
Character development could have been improved upon.
To sum up, it was a bit of well-researched, light entertainment suitable for whiling away a few hours if you've nothing better to do. I'd probably give this author another go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid entertainment 3 August 2013
By Kilian85710 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm always relieved when a book written by a friend turns out to be a good read. Then I can post an honestly positive review for it. This book is well constructed, well-researched, and fun to read. I'm no medieval expert, but I'm interested in the period, play with the SCA when I have the time, belong to the Historical Novel Society and know enough to catch out a writer who is fudging the details. Potatoes in the stew and tomatoes in the pasta give me fits. This is known as 'potato rage' in some circles.

Kirkwood knows her stuff. All the delightful little details of daily life in the middle ages ring true from the description of dress to where to sit at a banquet. The people don't act like modern people plopped down in a different era. They behave in ways appropriate to their time/place no matter how annoying that may be to us. That being said, the universal human emotions that are never bound to time/place are richly depicted.

If you enjoy a good medieval historical, I recommend this. Kirkwood never puts a foot wrong throughout the entire book. Now I'm on to another of her books, a time/slip story called--ta-da! A Slip in Time.

Disclosure: I bought and paid for this book with my own money what I earned with gainful employment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 14 October 2015
By Deborah J. Andreasen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A young orphan is saved from the aftermath of the slaughtering of an entire village. The young squire who saves get entrusts her to the care of a childless couple who raise her as their own. Ten years later, the knight returns from the crusades to discover she was actually of noble birth, and now he must find her and return her top her family and position.

The story is interesting, unlike anything I've ever read. I found Ana to be slightly irritating in her constant attempts to flee and thwart Sir Royce. Because she was so immature, I found it hard to believe he was attracted to anything about her except her uncommon beauty. I liked Sir Royce well enough. This book does contain adult content.

2.0 out of 5 stars An okay read 6 October 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was so excited when I read the synopsis of the plot. It appeared to have such promise for a grand romance. Unfortunately, the author took it in a direction that was very disappointing, in my opinion.

In the beginning, although a very young squire, you can tell that the hero is chivalrous and honorable and his compassion for the traumatized young girl is sincere and genuine.

What I really hated was the antagonism, lying and fighting the heroine engaged in with the hero after he found her as an adult. I kept thinking he would reveal his identity to the heroine and things would have gone much differently for them . As it turned out, the hero kept trying to do the right thing anyway. The heroine was not very likeable for most of the book.

I hate it when authors utilize a lack of communication as a plot device to create unnecessary and obvious problems between the hero and heroine, which is what happened by having the hero's identity unknown to the heroine through most of the book..

For me, I would have enjoyed the book so much more if there would have been more of a romantic love story developing between the hero and heroine, rather than having a misunderstanding between them for nearly the entire book.

Also, the appearance of the villain and the ending felt like the author was just rushing to tie up the loose ends.

Bottom line? The book could have been a terrific book because it had a great plot line but the author failed on several levels, in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it but there was no reason for the sex ... 29 February 2016

I enjoyed it but there was no reason for the sex scenes towards the end. It could have been done differently. Also, Juliana was very bratty. It got to be annoying. All in all, though, I liked the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good romance 3 March 2014
By JOANNA BROCKHOFF - Published on Amazon.com

This was a good overall romance. It had a good storyline. It did not have a lot of steamy parts...which fit this book perfectly. I have read tons of books, many have not kept my attention. This is a keeper.
