    An enjoyable addition to the Gisborne series! I was glad to get to know Owen and Izzy, but I was glad to see plenty of Guy and Cassia as well. They're my favorite couple in the books. One thing I enjoyed about this book, besides the central romance, was the father and son relationship. Guy's younger son is certainly a chip off the old block. :)

    This is the third in the Gisborne series (And hopefully, not the last) and if I had to rank the books so far, this would be the second on my list, just because I enjoyed “My Lady Gisborne” so much. “The Tempest” was lovely too, but I think I like the lighter tone of the sequel, mostly because of Evelyn Gisborne. She has become one of my favorite characters. But I digress…

    “The Baron’s Lady” is about Guy and Cassia’s younger son, Owen, and his love for Lady Isabella. Both characters were featured in “My Lady Gisborne,” but because that was Evelyn’s tale, we didn’t get to read enough about their love story. There were several questions I was left with after the last book, and at last I have my answers here.

    Owen is mostly a typical conflicted hero. He’s in love with a woman he isn’t meant to be with, and he spends a good portion of the story secretly pining for her. They form a friendship of sorts, which is temporarily broken when Isabella’s affair with Rene is revealed. (More on him in a few) Owen tries to convince himself that her wrong-doing is unforgiveable. After all, according to most of his peers, Isabella is a cheating whore who deserves to be punished. (This is a true medieval way of thinking – in those times, women were pretty much put into three categories: The virgin, the mother, and the whore. There really wasn't a middle ground.) Of course, Owen can’t deny that he still loves her, and like a true Gisborne, he makes up his mind to have what he wants. This is where he differs from his father. Guy was obsessed with having his true love, Cassia, in every way – even before they were married. In many ways, he was quite selfish. Owen differs from Guy because he is determined to defend Isabella’s honor, no matter the cost to himself. He wants what’s best for her. He vows to protect her and make her happy, and in my opinion, that’s the greatest kind of love.

    Isabella was a bit different in terms of a heroine. She’s a typical beauty, as most romantic heroines are, but I liked the fact that she had flaws. In “My Lady Gisborne,” we know that she has an affair with Rene, but we don’t get to know her very well. In some ways it was hard to like her, since she was a secondary character. But in this story, we learn more about her. Her husband is a disgusting pig who abuses her, both physically and emotionally. This isn’t her immediate reason for falling into Rene’s arms, but it explains why she’s so easily led astray. What I appreciated about her character was that she didn’t lose her knowledge of right and wrong, even when she was with Rene. She is tormented by her mistake, and even after she gets together with Owen, she is forever changed by what her mistake. I felt sorry for her, and I was glad that she found, as she says in the book, “A Gisborne of her own.”

    I rather liked Rene in “My Lady Giborne,” mostly because he was able to act with some sort of honor by the end of that book. But here, we see the naughtier side of him – the seducer. The one who swoops into a woman’s life, dazzles her, and then vanishes, leaving destruction in his wake. But in thinking about him, I realized that he's an important part of the Gisborne universe. If he hadn’t come along, would Simon have lived to return to Evelyn? (If you recall, Rene saved Simon’s life in the last book) Would Thea’s child have been rescued if Rene hadn’t been there to intervene? And if he hadn’t met Isabella, would she have found happiness with Owen? It's something to think about.
