When she finds out that she has been engaged to Colin of Berkhamshire, a man with the fiercest of reputations, she knows her stepmother has set it up so momenh she will be miserable. At no time does the author pretend Colin is anything but what he is. It’s very funny, but also touching.

Lady Isabeau was protecting her right and left and almost everyone saw through her lame-ass attempts. One of the few non-paranormal Kurland stories. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. She feels safe for the first time in years and finally starts to see what all we readers knew about Colin: He thinks the smooth-talking men who woo women with pretty words and flattery aren’t being very masculine.
Not that he isn’t better off without joment wife – not like he could find one who’d prefer practicing swordfights over gowns and manners. There were twists and turns that I was not expecting and really enjoyed. Where did that come from? I really enjoy her as an author overall. The story of Colin of Berckhamshire and Alienore of Solenge with no time travel. Set at some unspecified time in the Middle Ages though if you are looking for historical purity, look elsewherethe book has everything I like, cross-dressing included: Oh, I so wished I could have slapped some sense I honestly have no idea how to rate this book, so I won’t.
Through a bizarre twist of fate, she ends up journeying with her charge–Colin’s latest intended–to England, where Alienore finds herself not only in the Butcher of Berkhamshire’s garrison, but being made over into a knight by him personally. Admittedly, running away could only be a positive move as it would get her out from under Marie. Never tried to deepen her voice. Warning to some romance enthusiasts: Colin was an unusual, intriguing hero.
The Cover and Title It’s a lilac background with a book enhanced with a ribboned cover of interwoven pinks and oj, tied closed by pink silk ribbons and topped by a pink velvet flower and ruched velvet leaves. Also, Alienore’s inability to just speak up for herself and tell the truth was just so frustrating!
Oct 09, Frezanda rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: My favorite bit was after she accepted his proposal of marriage but asked to be wooed first.
Once Marie had married her father, life went downhill rapidly. The very funny thing is the arrogance of him. Colin comes across as stupid to some, bu I really do enjoy Lynn Kurland’s style Also, the evil characters had no hint of goodness to make them seem more real. The main male character is a kick.
Colin was an entertaining hero. It just seemed like a stupid and illogical thing to do when the truth would have saved all of them many troubles, especially the most stupid thing of all, the trip to France. I mean, the woman squeaks every time she’s frightened. I think this is my favorite if the series so far. There’s something about Kurland’s writing that I like She isn’t much good with a sword, but good at keeping watch and eventually she is tasked with escorting a daughter of the house she is now working for, to her betrothed – The Butcher of Berkamshire.
Colon also ended up with his most perfect mate, the very one he was supposed to get two years before. Jul 30, The Window Seat rated it really liked it. But because of his fearsome reputation, she ran away disguised as a boy.

Yet as a knight in disguise she constantly fears discovery. Add a huge, fierce, and rather pungent knight whose intended brides keep finding ways to avoid ffom with him, including one tall and clever lord’s dau I’ll be honest. But, the playground became more oft annoying than fun: Not surprisingly, she doesn’t want to be his bride either. His soft underbelly was there for me to see and now it is showing even more, but only to those that really know him.
I love this books. Nov 27, Ruth Ellen rated it it was amazing. And also like Christ A great improvement from the way things were going with this series! Very cute but a lil long. One of my favorites of the series, mostly because Colin is so amusing in his single minded devotion to the art of combat. No trivia or quizzes yet.
