Reveal a noble spirit and a Natives: Race and Class in the Ruins of Empire - The Sunday Times Bestseller gentle heart beneath the virile warrior's rough exterior kindling the flames of Jennet's womanly desiresand firing a magnificent soul stirring love that would triumph amid the treachery and perils of Er Read for the URR 2017 New Year s Reading Challenge prompt Medieval Romance 1911 The historical details were far interesting than Hacon and Jennet s romance I veot a whole list of I assume and they had better be or I m coming back to lower my rating even further historically accurate as in not just that Howell The Perfect Child got the fact that the battles happened and who the winning side was but I also want to know that the date and some of the strategic details she included were correct too battles to look up Perth Boroughbridge Berwick et alFriday night night before last I watched Season of the Witch with Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman and I was really annoyed to find that the battles Cage and Perlman s characters supposedly fought in as Teutonic Crusading knights during the 1330s were either complete fabrications or borrowed from different eras What s so hard about having the characters set in the correct time I know the movie s crap what was I expecting Well I wasn t expecting fantastic acting or a completely logical plot but for some reason I did expect some historical accuracy Anyway the point of that story is to say that I will be very disappointed if I find that Howell fudged any of her battle dateslocationswinners etc especially since they were my driving force for continuing to readI found Jennet a bit too na ve for my tastes For the first three uarters of the book she uestioned the fact that she might be in love with Hacon because how could she love a man who went off to w 35 stars I enjoyed the book I was even able to handle the dialect What I did find frustrating were the typographical errors and the fact that whoever was typing couldn t figure out what the name of the Keep was One time it s Dubheilrig another time it s Dahhielrig then again it s Dabhielrig I enjoyed the story even if it was very similar to the other book I read The romance runs the same line but the stories are different And then the resolution is predictable But all in all it was a pleasant read The Mon claimed the wee skinny lassy as his plunder35 StarsI have just finished Conueror s Kiss and while I enjoyed it I really struggled with the writinglanguage Nearly every sentence with dialogue had to be translated Ok maybe I m slightly exaggerating but there were definitely words that I struggled with the meaning My enjoyment of the story decreased because I had to re read passages to clarify or work out what was being saidJennet lived in a convent It was a peaceful existence for her especially after leaving service as a handmaiden for an ill tempered employer She did not plan to become a nun but was happy to live there England was at war with Scotland and she felt safe within the convent walls Unfortunately the Scottish soldiers did not follow the rules of sanctuary and attacked murdered and stole from the occupants Hacon one of the The Bruce s soldiers comes across Jennet and likes what he sees She admits to not being a nun so Hacon decides to keep Jennet as his plunder Jennet is Hacon s property and moves with him while he is fighting for his liege At first she is treated like a cleaning woman but once it is known that she has healing abilities she becomes valuable to theroup Hacon is a ood man Even though he has to kill and fight in a bloody war he always acts with honour He never forced himself on Jennet and while she is He never forced himself on Jennet and while she is it still surprises her They soon start to have feeling for each other and can t deny the attraction I enjoyed watching their connection row and their intimate scenes were fairly steamyI don t have a True Prosperity great understanding of the history at that time but if half of the stories are true there were a lot of people who died for the wrong reasons A lot of the soldiers followed with blind obedience because if they didn t they would be accused of treason You could either die on the field doing what you re told or die because you didn t This story proves how senseless war is and obviously we still haven t learnt from those mistakesBesides the love story Hacon s life is in danger One of his kinsmen wants him dead We learn pretty early on in the story the name of the perpetrator Unfortunately the evilness can t be stopped because Hacon can t find proof of his evil intent So while Hacon is fighting the English he also has to watch his back in case his allies attack Luckily his cousin Dugald is there to help protect himI did enjoy Conueror s Kiss and the love story that developed between Jennet and Hacon was sweet The language was my biggest problem and while one or two words wouldn t have concerned me I felt like I
