    Not the typical Medeiros novel, but still great

    This book is definitely different from Medeiros' other books, mostly in the actions of the hero and heroine. I guess in today's world, you could say Gareth was mean bordering on abusive toward the heroine at some points in the novel. But he also displays lovely acts of generosity, passion, and kindness to her as well. The beautiful blonde heroine, Rowena, is not like most romance novel heroines today-- the cliched 'fiery, stubborn woman'-- she was more complacent and accepting of the injustices Gareth presented her with. But this type of heroine is to be admired as well, as you can see why she acts the way she does when you learn about her upbringing. She has an optimistic strength that fits very well with Gareth's dark, brooding nature. When these two finally fall in love, it will make you sign with contentment. The chemistry and love scenes are definitely hot. And I love the Medieval setting of the story.

    Highly Recommended

    This one kept me hooked through the whole book. I normally do not like medival books, this dates 1292. But it really doesn't hit on the time period too much.
    It's about family loyalty and of course love.

    FelicityFictions

    Not at all what I thought. The hero was good but the heroine was not to my liking at all. She just reminds me of a little girl all the time, maybe it was the way the author described her. She also makes stupid decisions in the book. However I do love the dialogues in the novel; they were funny, cute, and very romantic. The plot was ggood but it is slow to begin with. If you like a book with lots of wit, charm, and a long plot with a child-like heroine this would be the book for you.

    A unique and wonderful romance

    I have to say, this is one of my favorite books of all time. Teresa Medeiros was at her finest when she wrote this novel. I loved her characters because they are unique. Rowena is beautiful, but also fragile and vulnerable. Gareth is very, very dark - almost like a Heathcliff-type character. The chemistry between the two is very strong. Medeiros's writing style draws you into the story. Plenty of beautifully descriptive scenes and memorable dialogue. I find that many romances are dumbed-down these days, but this is a complex story with a captivating plot. The love scenes sizzle. Truly a book to cherish.

    Okay

    I thought this book was going to be really good based on the reviews, but it was sooo slow!!! I just had to skip through some of the pages. I just couldn't take it. I mean it had a cute ending but it drags on.

    A reviewer

    This is the first Romance novel I've ever read. It's been years since I've started reading them and I have to say I dont think I have ever found another that I loved quite as much as Shadows and Lace. Every Novel I've read since has been compared to this one and none has ever topped it. For the longest time I tried, but couldnt remember who wrote this book or even what the title was. I'm so glad I've found it agian! I'm going to go out right now and buy it! I recommend everyone doing the same!

    A disappointing effort from Medeiros

    This was a surprising disappointment from Teresa Medeiros. There were many instances when the characters tried to reveal personal natures, but did not follow through. The age of the heroine was unclear until the end of the novel. There was never a true explanation for why the villains did whatever they did. Some of the characters had abiguous motives. The plot had promise, but the actual finished product needed to go through a another revision.

    An awsome read!

    I have always told myself that I would never read a book that contained 'Fabio' on the cover and basically that meant no romance for me. After a friend recommended me Medeiros and read Shadows and Lace, I was mesmorized. I was hooked on the book since the first page was turned until I finished it completely. I even recommended it to another friend who is now reading it!

    best historical novel ever!

    This was the first book i ever read of Teresa's but i assure youit will not be the last. The story-line was great, and the detailing of costumes and scenery was even better, you could almost envision yourself as if you were there hundreds of years ago. i highly recomend you read at least this one if not all of her books.
