This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 11, Uvi Poznansky rated it it was amazing. Having an impulsive female lead, such as Cambria in this story, is a sure way to let you know this story is going to have its unforeseen twists and turns. In the normal run of historical romance books, the damsel is usually in distress. Not so here, which makes for a playful and refreshing experience.
Being a bit impulsive myself, I started the trilogy not on its first book, My Hero, but on the second, My Warrior. Why did I do that? Because I figured that if the writing was any good, you can go Having an impulsive female lead, such as Cambria in this story, is a sure way to let you know this story is going to have its unforeseen twists and turns.
Never miss a deal!
Because I figured that if the writing was any good, you can go in any order, visit each one of the three brothers and see their world, experience their adventures out of the prescribed order. I was not disappointed. This book presents the second brother, Holden de Ware, whose heartbeat quickens upon meeting Cambria.
She sparks love in him, and furthermore, she becomes a challenge which brings to mind the Taming of the Shrew: Without the hand of a mother to guide her, Cambria is wild and spontaneous. She hates him, she loves him. When her father dies, she becomes the chieftain in his stead, facing a Scotland divided by war.
It falls to Holden, appointed by King Edward to represent England, to try and negotiate peace amidst treacheries and mistrust. So the challenge is on the political level as well as the personal one, it is a challenge in love and war. A note about the cover art, where amidst the shadows you can catch a glimpse of Holden in his shining armor.
He is holding his helmet, which is adorned with a fancy feather, and seems to be biding his time, waiting for someone. I enjoy the fact he is standing with his back to me, so that I am waiting for him to turn around. It is the moment before action I enjoyed this book very much. It was interesting and a bit unpredictable, especially the ending.
I would recommend it to anyone. I was lucky enough to win this book through a Goodreads giveaway a month or so ago.
Please allow me to recommend this author. Her stories, as this one is, are lush with descriptions of the land, castles, clothing, and people of the medieval periods of her books. It's really interesting for me to try and imagine what it was like to live in those times. We are all products of our upbringing and I was lucky enough to win this book through a Goodreads giveaway a month or so ago.
We are all products of our upbringing and environment, so I can't fault Cambria for her, what may seem to us now, foolish ways.

The same can be said for the men in the story. The Knights of de Ware are exactly what I would hope them to be, handsome, dashing, and honorable, while still being human, with faults and sometimes questionable loyalties that make the story so engrossing. I ran the gambit of emotions while reading this book, which to me, makes it well worth my time. I'm pleased to give Cambria, Holden, Duncan, and Garth 5 stars! I love a happy ending! Oct 21, Kathy rated it it was amazing. What more could a girl want? Especially not to the enemy! Cambria is a strong, beautiful girl, willing to sacrifice herself for her clan.
Her father taught her her duty along with sword play and other knightly skills. A beautifully told story, well written and captivating and totally worth the read! Feb 26, Clarice rated it really liked it. Two very strong-willed people face-off.
Her father was slaughter by the English, who said that they came in peace. Her castle was being surrounded by his King's Army. This Wolf had brought treachery to their land. Cambria Gavin would make all of them pay. Lady Warrior Cambria called a challenge to the Wolf, on the field of honor, should the English have. Holden has to find a way to end the bloodshed. Marriage s Two very strong-willed people face-off. Marriage should, and could bring these two warring factions together, but can it. With treachery coming at them from all sides.
Not knowing who to trust. Trust will come hard for both Holden and Cambria. Can they make it work? Jul 21, Raylani Reis rated it it was ok. Rape can occur without penetration and there are several scenes where the characters are made to feel grateful for having received this non-consensual sex, which is all types of questionable.
Basically I wish the author would use her talents to create characters that are able to whoo other characters with their good looks and personality not by forcing themselves upon others.
