Castles by Julie Garwood

From Julie Garwood, the undisputed queen of romance, comes her classic historical romance of princesses and noblemen!

Orphaned and besieged, Princess Alesandra knew that only a hasty marriage to an Englishman could protect her from the turmoil in her own land. To the amusement of her makeshift guardian, Colin, younger brother of the Marquess of Cainewood, the bold raven-haired beauty instantly captivated London society. But when Alesandra was nearly abducted by her unscrupulous countrymen, the fighting instincts that won Colin a knighthood for valor were kindled.

Deceiving himself that he wanted only to protect her, Colin swept her into a union meant to be a marriage in name alone...yet Alesandra's tender first kiss and hesitant caress ignited a wildfire in his soul. As the lovely princess dashed headlong into unforseen dangers, Colin would follow, knowing he must claim her as his own forever. Now he would risk life itself before he would lose this sweet, tempestuous angel...

Because I find that I am put off by reviews with spoilers, I want to begin by saying that ALL  reviews with spoilers should begin with "SPOILER ALERT" AS THE BEGINNING STATEMENT!  With that said, Julia Garwood's Castles is a wonderful story with great characters, plot, and themes (I WON'T EVEN SPOIL THE THEMES FOR YOU)!  But I will recommend curling up with this wonderful, smart book for an afternoon' s entertainment.  Two thumbs up!

I couldn't put this book down I finish it within one day.Even if I had school the next day I kept on reading. Read this book and you'll understand why gentlemen don't like to show there soft side. You'll laugh at the way collin treats Alesandra. Go buy the book and find out whether or not collin would admit he love Alesandra........ ENJOY..........

I picked this book up randomly in Hawaii (the cover caught my eye!) to read on the airplane ride home - and I was spellbound! I stayed awake the whole flight and finished by the time we returned home. This book was fabulous! I read another Garwood book, Ransom, and was thrilled to find out that they are all just as wonderful! I suggest reading Lion's Lady, Guardian Angel, and The Gift respectively before picking up Castles (easier to follow the characters) but they are delightful in any order! Enjoy. :-)

I have read others by Garwood and this was my least favirite so far. Had to force myself to finish it. Borning and predictable. All of Garwoods stories have the same basic plot. Beautiful women in danger and strong handsome man saves her with varying struggles inbetween.

You can't go wrong with a Julie Garwood book. She hasn't written anything I didn't love.

This book has turned out to be one of my favorite books of all time! It was so incredibly charming, romantic, sweet, funny, captivating and endearing. I was hanging on to every last word and couldn't set the book down for the life of me. The characters were so realistic and instantly captured my heart. It truly is a book to treasure and cherish.

I really loved this book. I wasn't into romance novels, until I read this book. It had me gripped. It was funny, sweet, and erotic. I loved the story of Alesandra and her spy.

I love to read Julie Garwood books they are lighthearted and easy to read. everyone who I have lent the book to has all said the same thing. My Sister who does not read very often finds them also entertaining. Although they are similar to other books all novels be they romance or not are similar. I would not have a book ant other way. I like the way Julie has of writing her books, with opening one liners. they get you interested straight away. I also enjoy the way she has mad a series of them.

Although I thoroughly enjoy Garwood's books, I feel that she's lacking. In each of her books, the main characters are always beautiful and gifted w/ handsome looks. This is not very realistic.

This one was okay but got very tedious and, well, boring. The princess was a great character, however. And Colin, fine as he was in other stories, didn't shine at all in his own story. I expected this one to be great, but I was disappointed.

I loved this book. I've probably read it at least four times. Every little girl dreams of being a princess, and Alesandra is the most wonderful princess of all. The sparks that fly between Colin and Alesandra inspire the reader to turn the pages as quickly as possible. A story full of humor, danger, and, above all, love; in the end I was left satisfied, yet yearning for the story to continue. Congratulations, Julie! It was wonderful.

This was the first Julie Garwood I read and I absolutley loved it! I would reccomend it to anyone and everyone. I have read so much of Julie Garwood because of this book and 'Gentle Warrior'. I encourage you to read both of them and other ones of her because she is a very good author.
