In order to save her home of Black Lynne Keep from the lengthy siege from the mercenary troops of Ian of Guilford (cleverly nicknamed Lord of a Thousand Nights for his bedroom prowess blah blah blah)Reyna decides to sacrifice herself by sneaking into the enemy camp, disguised as a courtesan, to seduce and murder Ian of Guilford. She fails in her mission and Black Lynne Keep is taken. Ian is intrigued by Reyna and her strange relationship with her late husband as well as the mystery surrounding his death. Reyna is the prime suspect in the man's demise and in order to save her from returning to her home and her abusive family, he decides to marry her. Thus ensues a bland and unpleasant courtship. Being a fan of Regency romances I was hesitant to start a Medieval novel, regardless of my love for Madeline Hunter's work. I see now that I should have trusted my first instincts. I was not entirely thrilled with the primitive setting of a rural Scottish fortress. It was not helped by the fact that besides the lack of imagination that went into the characters, it seemed that the Reyna and Ian just did not seem to like each other. Reyna was flighty and indecisive. She played an infuriating game of Yes and No in regards to her attraction to Ian. Each time she would come remotely close to sex with him she would utter the same irritating phrase.....'I Can Not'. Sooooooo frustrating. It was all I could do to finish this book.

This was my very first romance novel I read...and happy it was! This story has the typical romance, but there is this big secret you would never guess...well maybe if you read a lot of romance books... Anyways, I love how Lady Reyna's attitude is to the Lord of a Thousand Nights, Ian of Guilford! Plus you meet a lot of new characters you'll hate at first, but then fall in love at the end. I recommend this book if you like a Lady who goes undercover to save her people from a knight who can woe any lady. And if you like twist and turns in the last chapters!

I'd heard how great this author was and Lord of a Thousand Nights was the first book I could find to read. Although it wasn't the first in the series it was a magnificent story. Great characters, too. Ian and Reyna really loved each other and the plot held my interest throughout the entire book. I did love those friends of Ian's too; David and Morvan. Wow! I was really smitten with them. Can't wait to read their stories. I also found their wives, Christiana and Anna very endearing. This is still a typical romance novel, but the writing style of MH makes it different in a subtle, yet important way. Her heros are cool, a little inigmatic, and sexy.

I would have to say that this author writes excellent historical romances. Her writing is superb and suspenseful. You never know what will happen to her characters next, or what the characters' motivations are for their actions until later in the book.

I have read this book and it is so great there are no words to describe it. It shows how two people who hate eachother, overcome the obstacle of handling eachother and to learn to love and care for eachother. See what I told you. There are aren't many words to describe this book, the way it should be described. But here are some words that can relate to this book: fantastic, spectacular, great, endless, and excellent! Madeline writes books and her characters so good that we fall in love with them so very much. So I recommend this book to you and just watch, you'll be speechless!

In 1357 on the Scottish border, widow Lady Reyna Graham concocts a dangerous but necessary plan to try to save her people. The siege led by English mercenary Ian Guilford and his ally Morvan Fitzwaryn (star of THE PROTECTOR) is working so well that it jeopardizes her clan. Reyna dresses up as a courtesan to gain access to her enemy¿s camp so that she can kill Ian, known for his military and boudoir prowess as the LORD OF A THOUSAND NIGHTS.

However, Ian is not anything like Reyna¿s deceased much older spouse Robert and so she underestimates his intelligence while her efforts to protect her people intrigues him. However, he learns that her past is an enigma as rumors abound that she killed Robert. As Reyna and Ian bond in love, someone plans a different unhappy ending for this duo.

Madeline Hunter continues to provide reader with some of the best medieval romances on the market today. Her latest tale, LORD OF A THOUSAND NIGHTS, is a strong story containing two deep characters agonizing between love and responsibility. The story line contains much of the elements found in most sub-genre tales, but several twists and turns keep the reader guessing as to what happens next and who Reyna really is. The return of characters from the Hunter pantheon of novels provide a myth like depth that proves once again that when it comes to fourteenth century romance, readers should hunt down novels by this wonderfully skilled writer.

I would of given this book more stars if it had a better plot. Good characters but again the plot wasn't all that great. I recommend that if someone would like to read this book,to check it out at the library or something. This is one of those books where you'll read it once but no more than that.
