My Champion 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 62 reviews.

Overall this was a good read. I had some issues with Linet. She is more than just "spirited". She shows a frequent complete lack of common sense and absolutely no sense of self-preservation. Her shallow and misplaced pride also get frustrating, as do the overabundance of weaving analogies. Also, Duncan has dozens of by-blows which are written in as passing reference which is kind of unsettling to the storyline. I get it- different times, different cultures, but it still puts a check mark into the Irresponsible Dumb-A$$ column of his qualities.Other than these few peeves, it had plenty of action and romance and kept me engaged.

The book had good characters with sparkaling personalitys. It is a fairly simple book, but is at the same time very colorful and interesting since it includes quite a bit of adventure and romance.

I had a very difficult time trying to finish this book. The heroine is probably the STUPIDEST character I have ever had the misfortune of reading about! Absolutely no common sense! Every time she did something deadly stupid I wanted to scream! It made this book difficult to finish!

I dont know if I want to take a chance and buy another book for the story was good but linet was driving me nuts. Please dont mess up a good book with a silly women. You have the making of a good writer and could have done so much more with that silly child. I will give your book another shot. For maybe this was a bad mistake in Linet. He deserve a woman.

It's a shame that I really couldn't stand the heroine in this book - because all the other characters were very well written and "fleshed" out. Alas, I couldn't understand why our hero would even be interested in such a b#tchy woman. But no, he pursued her ad nauseam. This is what I'd call a "romantic" level of sex - not a whole lot and not very graphic; just right for those of you who prefer that the sex doesn't eclipse the story. I might try to get through the next one, as I'm curious to find out what happens to our hero's brothers, but the thought of having to put up with another heroine like this one totally turns me off. Maybe if it's free . . .

This is the Best Book I have read by; Glynnis Cambell. I love to read stories like this. Sword Fighting,medieval stories,Cruise ships ,Scottish Castles, and especial Swashbuckling Historical Romances.I couldn't put the book down. It was so exciting I was afraid I would miss something by putting it down. I loved Linet..she couldn't trust a common person. I loved the Sir Duncan de ware. The sword fight was wonderful. I felt like I was there. THIS is my kind of a book to read. It keeps you excited and waiting for the next thriller.I am looking for more of her books. She is a very good author.I got to get another of her exciting book. Love you Glynnis....

not captivating Enough to keep you turning the page. Over descriptive drag! I suppose its an insight into those times where the guy spreads his seed and the woman's raised to be a chauvinist The hero does not seem responsible and the heroine is arrogant. Just when you think its over, the author wants to tie up storyline loose ends. And drags on

3.5 STARS!! I liked Duncan as a hero, but really couldn't understand WHY he liked Linet. He was for the poor and common person. Linet really upset me - she was very hard to like, and I didn't care for her until the last 1/4 of the book. What did Duncan see in her? She didn't like the poor, nor the common people, as Duncan did. But the last 1/4 of the book was worth the read. They must be read in order to fully appreciate the knowledge you learn of the 3 brothers in this book. The lovemaking is a little descriptive, but not vulgar. (ljb)

Too drawn out but overall good story. Too many bastard children and he cant tell them from the strays he brought home. And who is attracted to a beggar? Ever??

I like this writer and was pleased that I remained interested through out the entire book. I also have read the next book in the series with the same contentment with the story plot, depth of characters and romance. A Good Read.

My co-worker met the author at the Irish Fair this year.. being male he did not enjoy the book at all. I took it up, and could not put it down. Glynnis has a vivid imagination, Duncan and Linet are a crazy match, even though it is hard to believe that a man would endure such pain (physically and emotionally) for his betrothed. Anyway, I have ordered My Warrior and My Hero to finish the series of the De Ware brothers. Good solid enjoyment!

The H was alpha and the female was determined. Lots of adventure and intrigue. I enjoyed the read. The romance was good.

What would have been an awesome story was ruined by a pathetic, whiny, self-righteous heroine who was just too thick-headed to grow up. Loved hero, who albeit was blinded, was also an endearing nutcase. Advice: keep the storyline but smarten up the women!

It is a bit long but it was worth it. I would have been mad to spend $ on a series of short stories. This is really good. I cannot wait to buy the others.

Oh Glynnis! This book was really an enjoyable read from beginning to end! My Champion had so many twists and turns my head was spinning but through every page turn you had me yearning for the next chapter. Sir Duncan's disguse as a beggar was odd at first...I couldn't understand why he would deny his nobility to guard the cloth stand of Lynet. But as the story gained momenum and the plot thickend, I was in for the adventure! Great characters and steamy romance! I can't wait to findout what has happened to Duncan's brother in Scotland now! Five stars from Marianne C in WV...

Nice story. It was like watching a good movie. Just a little daunting; some parts felt like communication between the characters was not realistic.

Not a bad story. Linnet drove me crazy since she couldn't decide if she loved Duncan or not. Based upon the preview, I might give the second book a try.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Linet is incredibly annoying. Duncan deserves far better than to fall in love with her. Nonetheless, the story is a good read due to its supporting cast and many amusing turns in plot.

Loved this storyline . Can't wait to read the next book, My Warrior.
