Ms. Lawrence's Lords series is definitely a keeper. I read Lord of Swords first since it was the most recent in this series, but it was so good that I bought Ms. Lawrence's back list of the Lords series and started with the first one...this one. OMGosh! I am flabbergasted by this author's depth of detail and historical description! I truly feel like I am in the medieval era and witnessing everything in the story firsthand. What an exciting experience it was to read this book! I liked that Gilles, although a swoon-worthy hero, was an aging warrior with self doubts and insecurities. He was so realistic to me I fell in love with him myself. And I loved feisty Emma who, despite the put-down attitude toward women in those times, still fought for her integrity and self worth. I admired her so much! I lost sleep over this story as I couldn't put it down once I started it; stayed up way past my bedtime two nights running. :-) But now I can hardly wait to dig into my next book in the Lords series as I know I have another treat awaiting me.Was this review helpful?
