In 1332 Dorwich, Duncan de Ware and his brothers observe the guildswoman waiting at the dock holding letters of marque signed by King Edward. When Spanish Captain El Gallo, a notorious sea reiver, arrives, the woman challenges him for his cargo since his country stole her wool. Seeing the de Ware brood nearby, an irate El Gallo gives the woman his wine. She simply spills her new cargo out on the ground.

Duncan worries about the woman Linet de Montfort and decides to keep an eye on her in order to protect her from El Gallo. In spite of an immediate attraction between them, she wants Duncan to leave her alone feeling the gypsy is bad for business especially for a first year 'sole femme'. However, when the Spanish abduct Linet, her only hope for rescue lies with the gypsy.

MY CHAMPION is an exciting medieval romance that provides readers with an in depth look at the fourteenth century. The insider's view enhances a non-stop action plot that engages the audience from first page to last. The squabbling but charming and brave lead couple adds alight touch to a powerful historical romance that deserves sequels starring other de Ware siblings.

Overall this was a good read. I had some issues with Linet. She is more than just "spirited". She shows a frequent complete lack of common sense and absolutely no sense of self-preservation. Her shallow and misplaced pride also get frustrating, as do the overabundance of weaving analogies. Also, Duncan has dozens of by-blows which are written in as passing reference which is kind of unsettling to the storyline. I get it- different times, different cultures, but it still puts a check mark into the Irresponsible Dumb-A$$ column of his qualities.Other than these few peeves, it had plenty of action and romance and kept me engaged.

    3.5 STARS!! I liked Duncan as a hero, but really couldn't under

    3.5 STARS!! I liked Duncan as a hero, but really couldn't understand WHY he liked Linet. He was for the poor and common person. Linet really upset me - she was very hard to like, and I didn't care for her until the last 1/4 of the book. What did Duncan see in her? She didn't like the poor, nor the common people, as Duncan did. But the last 1/4 of the book was worth the read. They must be read in order to fully appreciate the knowledge you learn of the 3 brothers in this book. The lovemaking is a little descriptive, but not vulgar. (ljb)

    A nice book to read

    The book had good characters with sparkaling personalitys. It is a fairly simple book, but is at the same time very colorful and interesting since it includes quite a bit of adventure and romance.
