Discover the first romance in New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood's beloved Crown's Spies series!
Christina Bennett has taken London society by storm but the ravishing beauty has kept her mysterious past shrouded in secrecy. When the arrogant nobleman, Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, steals a sensuous kiss, however, he believes he tastes the wild fire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swears to possess her.
But the feisty and defiant Christina cannot be so easily conquered. Mistress of her own heart and fortune, she resists Lyon's passionate caresses and refuses to surrender to his desire for if she does, she must also forsake her precious secret and her promised destiny. With her "straightforward style and brisk pacing" (Kirkus Reviews), Julie Garwood's classic romantic series is perfect for fans of Jude Deveraux and Julia Quinn.
Although this, like Saving Grace, is very much a wallpaper historical, Garwood at least did enough basic research into the culture and rituals of the Dakota Sioux to avoid being patently offensive.
Waterson:Carthy sing The Lion's Den Jacqui McShee sings The Lady of Carlisle; Down in St James's there lived a lady And she was a beauty fine and gay, She was determined to live a lady, No man on earth could marry she. Down in Carlisle there lived a lady And she was a beauty fine and gay; She was determined to stay a lady, No man on earth could her betray.
The humor which constantly arises due the the contrasting cultures made me laugh all through the book. Christina and Lyon are both intelligent, likeable and strong.
