This book was a strange one Love at first sight followed by long periods of no contact Characters for claiming they had suffered for months thinking of the other, but as a reader, we did not get to participate in any of that The scenes shared by the main characters were eagerly anticipated and often satisfactory, but the main character s reluctance to enter into the relationship was puzzling, and I struggled to understand the strength of her resistance I enjoyed reading about the time period, but found myself frustrated and confused by the romance Perhaps if I read it again, I would have a better understanding.There was also a bit much in the religious area, a bit focus on the main character s conversion to Christianity than I cared for. Clean romance set in medieval England containing a smart brave heroine and an attractive chivalrous hero What s not to like Cute story Okay, I hated the feeling of being strung along with the male protagonist when the female protagonist kept refusing him And I honestly don t think that some of the things that happened in the story would have been plausible in that time period But whatever, she writes well, especially since this was her first book. IT WAS AMAZING it was a bit cheesy, with the guy spouting his feelings every time they were alone, guy, a little subtly never hurt not that i minded that much it was so ROMANTIC there were than enough kissing scenes which were so romantic the one thing i dont like was that there wasnt enough of the guy s point of view, and they spent too many long periods of time apart but you know what they say Absence makes the heart grow fonder. I ve basically always loved CP s work, so I got this with total confidence that I would love it I was surprised, then to find it a little cheesy By the time I got to the end and saw in the note from the author that it was her first novel, I felt vindicated in my opinion It isn t bad But it isn t good, and CP has definitely become a better writer with time. I liked the story, but I think that it s a little hard to believe how many times the male protagonist coincidentally arrives Also, I got a little lost regarding the passing of time There were a few instances where I thought a week or two had passed when in reality many months had gone by Other than this, I very much enjoyed this historical romance I found that I actually enjoyed all the mushy scenes Felt bad for the hero always getting rejected But despite the flaws of a first novel, I did like it Also, it was unique in trying to get inside the head of a premodern noblewoman whose first duty is to her heritage, not her heart There was a good sense of disparate groups Briton, Viking, Saxon, Norman learning to all live together and except the reality of post conquest England.
