Guess this might be a decent story if the paragraphs and puctuation were better. I could not tell who was talking and trying to follow the story was very difficult. It also dragged right from the beginning. I was hoping the story would get better but never did. Didnt finish it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am constantly reading new books and I found this one to be exceptional! This was the first Drake book that I have read and I plan to read many more of her books. She offers the perfect combination of history, adventure, humor and of course romance. It was hard to put the book down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the first Shannon Drake book I read. Afterwards, I developed an addiction. Her books are absolutely engrossing. Your heart is tugged in all directions of passion. No other writer satisfies me but Shannon Drake. I reccommend the Graham trilogy, and Bride of the Wind in particular. You may have to go to a used bookstore to find Bride of the Wind. In all, each of her books constitute a medeival masterpiece that I would highly recomend to anyone ready to enter an intense and enticing sub-reality of escape. Beware: do not read one of her books when you have things to get done. Trust me, they won't get done.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

By 1301, Lady Eleanor of Clarin knows she will do anything, even sleep with Lucifer, to keep her people safe. She has fought in war against the murderous Scots who killed her father. Now she is marrying an elderly, wealthy French aristocrat all for the good of her people and to thwart the plans to control her and her land by King Edward I, who selected a bestial knight as her spouse. <P> On the journey across the Channel to France, pirates take her ship and capture Eleanor. However, the victors have no time to celebrate as Scots led by Brendan Graham attack their ship and make Eleanor their prisoner. Each one hates the other based on prejudices that center on deaths of loved ones. However, loathing turns quickly into passionate loving, but they realize they have no future together as the machinations of King Henry and Robert the Bruce supersede even the noblest of aristocrats. <P> SEIZE THE DAWN is an exciting medieval romantic thriller that leaves the audience gasping for breath. The story line is fast-paced, filled with the era¿s intrigue, and loaded with historical tidbits and persona that make the plot feel authentic. The star crossed lead couple is a charming duet as the intrepid Eleanor wants nothing to do with love thy enemy and Brendan is a worthy Gibson-like hunk. Shannon Drake writes an appealing historical romance novel that readers will need more than the dawn to finish this one-sitting tale. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
