Meet the Author

When she's not writing swashbuckling historical romances and playing medieval matchmaker, bestselling author Glynnis Campbell (also writing as Sarah McKerrigan and Kira Morgan) is a cartoon voice, the wife of a rock star, and the mother of two young adults. She's been a ballerina, a typographer, a film composer, a piano player, a singer in an all-girl rock band, and a voice in those violent video games you won't let your kids play.

She does her best writing on cruise ships, in Scottish castles, on her husband's tour bus, and at home in her sunny southern California garden. Glynnis loves transporting readers to a place where the bold heroes have endearing flaws, the women are stronger than they look, the land is lush and untamed, and chivalry is far from dead!

    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.

    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.

    Please

    I dont know if I want to take a chance and buy another book for the story was good but linet was driving me nuts. Please dont mess up a good book with a silly women. You have the making of a good writer and could have done so much more with that silly child. I will give your book another shot. For maybe this was a bad mistake in Linet. He deserve a woman.

    Excellent work

    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. <P> 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. <P> 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. <P>Harriet Klausner

    This is the Best Book I have read by; Glynnis Cambell. I love to

    This is the Best Book I have read by; Glynnis Cambell. I love to read stories like this. Sword Fighting,medieval stories,Cruise ships ,Scottish Castles, and especial Swashbuckling Historical Romances.I couldn't put the book down. It was so exciting I was afraid I would miss something by putting it down. I loved Linet..she couldn't trust a common person. I loved the Sir Duncan de ware. The sword fight was wonderful. I felt like I was there. THIS is my kind of a book to read. It keeps you excited and waiting for the next thriller.I am looking for more of her books. She is a very good author.I got to get another of her exciting book. Love you Glynnis....

    Not captivating

    not captivating Enough to keep you turning the page. Over descriptive drag! I suppose its an insight into those times where the guy spreads his seed and the woman's raised to be a chauvinist
    The hero does not seem responsible and the heroine is arrogant.
    Just when you think its over, the author wants to tie up storyline loose ends. And drags on

    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)

    Enjoyed immensely, would recommend both books in the series.

    I like this writer and was pleased that I remained interested through out the entire book. I also have read the next book in the series with the same contentment with the story plot, depth of characters and romance. A Good Read.

    Just Wonderful

    My Champion is a wonderful book for anyone who loves mid-evil, Scottish romance stories. Glynnis Campbell is a fantastic writer and demonstrates it in this book. I have read the book itself multiple times and love it. I recommend it for ages 14+. It contains a few sexual scenes, but is still an awesome book.

    Met author at Irish Fair - loved the book!

    My co-worker met the author at the Irish Fair this year.. being male he did not enjoy the book at all. I took it up, and could not put it down. Glynnis has a vivid imagination, Duncan and Linet are a crazy match, even though it is hard to believe that a man would endure such pain (physically and emotionally) for his betrothed. Anyway, I have ordered My Warrior and My Hero to finish the series of the De Ware brothers. Good solid enjoyment!

    I can't stand Linet!

    I had a very difficult time trying to finish this book. The heroine is probably the STUPIDEST character I have ever had the misfortune of reading about! Absolutely no common sense! Every time she did something deadly stupid I wanted to scream! It made this book difficult to finish!

    No

    I wanted to like this book. Duncan was the usual amazing hero and his relationship with his brothers made for a fun (but all too short read), but Linet was so unlikeable it eas hard to finish the book!
