This is one of my favorite Julie Gardwood's histroicals,Its so hard to choose because I love almost all of them . She writes so magnificently and passionate for this era not its hard not to get goosebumps.I could feel Everything the characters were feeling,the female leads were strong willed and do it themselves kinda women ,which is very hard to place in historicals. She really make me fall in love with all her characters,she has such an amazing writing gift . Lyon and Christina were just Puuurfect !!!! I reallly don't have anything to bad to say about the characters.They were all put together and molded together to give this book the right flavor of awesome. They loved each other,they supported each and when they both stopped being stubborn it was like the first majestic days of Camelot. I really can't stop saying how much I love this series and I love Julie Garwood's historicals, 5 stars xoxxo!
