Meet the Author

Author of 17 Historical Romances my first book, China Rose, was published in 1984. Since then my historical romances have consistently appear on the USA Today list. I have been honored to be the recipient of multiple awards from Romantic Times, including 2 Lifetime Achievement awards, Storyteller of the Year, Medieval of the Year, Swashbuckler of the Year, as well as having been awarded one of a very few five star reviews handed out by Kathe Robin for The Blood of Roses. The Iron Rose was also named as one of the seven best Fiction books of the year by Publishers Weekly. With the advent of Self Publishing, it has been truly wonderful to be able to reissue my backlist in digital format. Some, like China Rose, Bound by the Heart, and The Wind and the Sea, have not been in print for twenty five years. I love writing in all time periods and have been dubbed "The Queen of Swashbuckling Romance" by Romantic Times for the action and adventure in each of my thrilling, award-winning novels.

It was beautiful...the romance, the struggles between the character's, the scenery and the history. I need to start looking for the sequel, this one is one you will want to continue on reading into the next novel.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful romance novels I have ever read. I do enjoy reading Julie Garwood's novels, but her books are more of the breezy kind of lighthearted read. Canham's style is quite different. This novel and the sequel 'The Blood of Roses' are so emotionally riveting that it takes your breath away. It's historically enriching and very moving. The sequel picks up right where the first book left off. Her main characters, Alexander and Catherine are real people, and that fact makes it even more wonderful to read if you love historical romances. My all time favorite romance novel quote came from this book as Alexander tells Catherine'...I can admit quite freely that I love you...With my body if you will have it, my heart if you will trust it, my soul if you will take it into safekeeping.' This book will leave you breathless! If you are interested in the history of Scotland and the Jacobite rebellion in the early 1700s...pick this up now!

Really enjoyed this book. Just the right mixture of romance and history. Immediately upon finishing this book tonight I purchased the next book in the series.

If you're looking for a heated-mind-blowing-one-night-stand smut, where there is a new sexual encounter every five pages; you've come to the wrong place. The Pride of Lions is a masterful creation where Marsha Canham brings you in, makes you care about the characters and their motivations as she brings you into a world, not of her creation, but set around historical events. Her action scenes and battlefields are descriptive and tangible. You can taste the gunpowder in her words and hear the roar of battle. Her ability to raise goosebumps as her characters discover a passion for each other is no less thrilling. Read this. Then read the sequel. Then go find her other books. If you appreciate excellent writing as well as romance, any of her novels are not to be overlooked.

Sadly, you must buy the other book to see what happens, better writing and characters in Outlander. The main charcter went from spoiled and hateful to won over by love in a single paragraph.

I have read all three of the trilogy and they are all wonderful. The Pride of Lions and the Blood of Roses are by far the best of the three. The love story between Catherine and Alex is unbelievable and I was hooked from the very beginning. Wow, is all I can say! If you enjoy a really good love story with lots of history thrown in, you will not be disappointed.

I loved the main and minor characters and the historical events that formed the backdrop for the story added to the realistic aspects of the romance.

I really enjoyed reading this book a lot of action and spark between the characters. There were some things left unfinished which I realize is due to the fact there are two more books. I would definitely recommend this book. Not as good as her Robin Hood trilogy but I did enjoy it.
