Overview

Astride her white palfrey, surrounded by a nimbus of silver-blond hair, Jasmine was a vision to strike a man mute with desire.  But the violet-eyed love child of King Richard's half brother had vowed that no man would ever rule her heart.  Until she saw the face of the Devil himself in her crystal ball--the dark, brooding knight who would kill to make her his own.  She would risk a dissolute court and a maddened, lustful king to keep destiny at bay, anything to keep her from the hypnotic eyes and burning caresses of...The Falcon.

A wickedly handsome warrior who lived by blood and the sword, Falcon de Burgh wanted to wed no woman--until he laid eyes on the exquisite Jasmine, and he vowed to possess her, to teach her all the wondrous ways a man could love a woman, no matter what it might take to conquer her fiery, unyielding heart. Falcon knew only blind, reckless passion as he swore to tame, at the risk of his life...The Flower.

Raised in a world without men, alluring Jasmine vows never to surrender to any man. Yet suddenly she finds herself caught between a king's penchant for virgins and a 13th-century warrior's oath to conquer her unyielding heart. Original.

    Truly a good story

    I have been a big fan of virginia henley since i was a child. in this story it opens up various characters to carry on a wonderful legacy of a continuous rotation of a historical time. In this story there is a man that falls for a women but it is an ongoing battle between the two of them. It will keep you intrigued till the very end. I highly recommend this book because if you get the books that follow it all circulates together quiet well. Truly a wonderful story for romance.Virginia Henly is a wonderful inspiration for me:)

    Very Disappointing

    This is the first book I've read by Ms. Henley and I found it disappointing. The male character of Falcon was great and portrayed strength and intelligence, but the female character was horrible. Jasmine constantly contradicted herself and rarely showed any strength of character; she gives a bad name to all women characters. Then there was the lovemaking. It seemed like rape and sexual abuse. I regretted my choice of buying this book--it is trash. DON'T judge a book by its cover!

    Waste of money

    This is really long, horribly written book! I made myself speed read the whole book because I spent $8 on it. I'm not saying the author is bad but this is the first and last book of hers I will read.

    Poor choice in Jasmine as the flower, little development of character

    This book had so much potential in terms of the historical persective, the hero - but got stuck with a superficial, immature character as Jasmine. Only 3/4 through the story is there any movement on the character development. It was a struggle to continue reading the book - a pity.

    My inspiration to write romance novelties

    The first time I ever tried to write a romantic story I remember I was merely 11 years old;that was back in 1993 when I was still living in Cuba.After I came to the U.S the hard work and the short time kept me away from my pens and my notebooks. This story from the so talented Mrs Virginia conquered my heart at a point that it became my inspiration to try and start again.I think it's fascinating the way she describes averything and most of all the way a shy,frigile,young girl conquers the heart of a relentless rogue like Falcon.At the end she ends up discovering the true woman inside her.I don't like violence but that's more close to reallity than any other fair unharmed romance.Nothing in this life is perfect.This book is a treasure I'm always going to keep.Thank you so much Mrs Henley for The Falcon and the Flower.Thanks for being my inspiration and for giving me back the desire to dream again.

    Love does not need Violence

    I may be a highschool student but I know a good book when I read one and this one was not the best. Yes sure its a romance but i did not like the way the main character, Falcon, would slap Jasmine and make her feel like it was her fault because she angered him. He would say some really mean things to her and she would slap him and he would slap her back so hard it would make her fall to the ground, then he would run up to her and cuddle with her, saying how much he loved her, and she would say SHE was sorry!!! He even slapped her when she didnt want to make love to him. I just did not appreciate him hitting her and it having no moral behind it like him being sorry instead she would feel she upset him so it was her fault.
