It’s an old fashioned historical romance and there is alot I like about it and some things I didn’t like. Do You Want to Start a Scandal. Set in Medieval times.
The Black Lyon (Montgomery/Taggert, #1) by Jude Deveraux
Lyonene raised timid eyes to Ranulf de Warbrooke, not sure what she expected but fearing the worst. Better World Books Condition: I don’t think I liked that. The shutters were closed tightly against the cold winter, and the devwraux light came from the small fireplace and the tallow candle on the tall iron stand by the bed.
Possible pet peeves view spoiler [ This was a bodice ripper The first two times the sex is basically rape She’s 17 and he’s older I DO NOT mind this in historicals The hero slaps the heroine after he thinks she cheated on him and her lips are bloodied The heroine doubts the hero when a villain convinces her she’s pregnant and leaves him whiles she’s pregnant too Both have trust issues We later come to know Ranulf knows it was Lyonene all along in the tent- but it’s deveraus he might have cheated if it wasn’t her??
It is not meant to be serious historical fiction because the characters are too typecast and downright exasperating to be taken seriously.
They were well written though and weren’t cliched villains which was appreciated. Soon they get married, but the shadow of their insecurities plague their vows and they are tested through difficult times.
Jude has also stepped outside her milieu, with mixed results. Jun 12, Ashley rated it did not like it Shelves: I thought that I might have liked it because it seemed like a nice medieval romance. Accidentally Compromising the Duke. When she takes an arrow for him on the field of battle, things change for them. Deveraux did a great job of portraying a winsome, clever and strong heroine and the dark, sometimes cruel and brutal lord. Overall, it was a thoroughly entertaining story and there was some nice suspense.
I like books set in the medieval times, I love to see how two strangers marry then have to get to know and trust each other. Like a lot of romance novels, a LOT of melodrama. Ranulf trauma terhadap istri pertamanya yang menikah hanya karena kekayaannya, dan berpikir Lyonene juga menikah dengannya hanya karena tertarik akan kekayaannya.

It’s why I have so many hardback copies of romance novels in my library and we swapped books by the truckload. Usually mothers with daughters were greedy for him, for his money and title, or else afraid of him on account of his reputation.
But I have to say I was disappointed. We went on book shopping expeditions, we all joined the Doubleday book club remember that? But Ranulf is going after them and finally – nearly a four month after the abduction – he find and save her. And want it that women be gone and dead! My freaking brain is fried from all of their drama but at the same time I enjoyed reading it! Melite turned to her husband and smiled sweetly.
Maybe I’d have appreciated them more. I’m not sure about it!
It had taken a long time for Lyonene to soothe the animal and gain its trust so that she could release the iron jaws of the trap, and all the while the dog had looked at her with just such an expression of wariness, pain and near-dead jde as did the man who stood before her now. She is a very good author. He is friend to my blsck I liked it, but there wasn’t anything especially special about the plot or characters. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
I got hooked up on some of the more humorous books but I am making my way through this series.
The Black Lyon : Chapter 1
It’s why I have so many hardback copies of romance novels in my library and we swapped b I got my first job in The first book I read by the author and obviously one of her first, since the writing is a bit simple and sometimes a bit off. Also, the Medieval period detail was to die for as well and is what I live frree. Meskipun sy tdk terlalu suka bagian tengahnya karena terkesan sedikit membosankan, tapi cerita buku ini juxe sekali tidak mengecewakan.
A great read, but reading this book is like digging my own grave. Ranulf’s a jerk and a hypocrite. The only redeeming quality she had was that she knew how to tame wild horses and eventually, her husband.
