Format: Paperback
Lord Wolfram (Wolfe) and Lady Ginevra were betrothed to each other as children. This knowledge of their inevitable marriage causes a mixture of resistance as well as interest as they mature into young adults.

Despite her outward antagonism, Gin develops a crush on Wolfe and starts attempting to remake herself into what she feels he wants in a wife, but Wolfe merely shrugs her aside each time.

Wolfe and Gin live separately as the eight-year older Wolfe waits for his child-bride to grow up. Wolfe buries himself in wars, tournaments and women while Gin allows her mother to groom her into a wife, worthy of Wolfe. She thinks she's certain to please him --- until she arrives at Wolfe's family home and sees him again for the first time in years.

Emerald Knight was a difficult one for me. I'm a big fan of Michelle Pillow's books but so far have read only her paranormals and this is the first straight historical I've read from her. The book was very well written with excellent characterization and depth. The plot was intricate and thorough. Yet I was left with a slight feeling of dissatisfaction that required some thought on my part to understand.

My only problem with this story is that some actions of Wolfe are, to me, un-heroic. Although completely period correct for the setting of the story, I had personal issues with them and it made me less sympathetic to Wolfe overall.

I think it's a great book and will especially appeal to people that like historical romances. Michelle does her research very thoroughly and I didn't find much of anything that set off my alarms of being inaccurate. Overall, a great story by a great storyteller.

Ginevra Southaven was betrothed to Wolfe Whitshire when she was a baby and he eight years old. She only had seen a couple of times when she went to Whitshire Fortress to marry him at the age of 15. He did not even meet her when she arrived he was up on the tower roof having sex with a serving maid.She had gone up there and heard them. She was very upset. They married right away and on the wedding night he got fall out drunk .He went to the same maid on their wedding night and this time she found then in bed together. He was gone the next day.He might have a flash of quilt but did not last long She had not seen him for 3 years she was now 18.He was either at war, or going to tournaments to earn money. He of course was still having one woman after another.Ginerva goes to a tournament thinking he will not be there.She is the admired by all the men they called her the Sparkling Emerald. Wolfe even admired her then realized it was his wife. He still had the women fawning all over him she had to throw one naked woman out of his tent.They consumed their marriage then .He could not be honest with her and tell her he was leaving again on the crusades and she could not tell him how she felt. They had a lot of misunderstandings because of this They spent a lot of time apart really only a few days up till now. I kept reading right through till I finished the book . I do not want to give away any spoilers so much more going on in the book.I have read the author before only the historical ones and liked them all.

I loved it. It was great to be transported back through time to meet her characters. A childhood crush, playful pranks, and a promised marriage all payed off in one great story. I found myself wanting the hero and herione to consumate the marriage as badly as they did and really enjoyed descriptions of their marriage bed. I recommended this book to many friends and they were not let down.

I liked how they fought a lot and her quick wit and humor. I also loved the passion that they have and how they are so fall so in love with eachother. The action makes it exciting to match the romance head on.

the love story is sweet. And M Pillow is a good writer. It's about two people who were destined, since infancy, to wed to unite two aristocratic families. They got married about 1/3 of the book if I am not mistaken, and the story ends with them being happily married, Finally. I really like the opening chapter where Wolfe meets his infant bride to be. I don't really have a problem with his cheating,it was done before they consummate their marriage. (but I don't have a problem with cheating in the books in general, if I can still see that the hero loves the h regardless.) Neither with the relationship development or the pace, as other reviewer has mentioned. What really bothers me is that there were so many misunderstandings like in the old bodice rippers. The kind of misunderstandings that make the characters look stupid or immature. Just one example - how can he not know or be certain that she loves him, seeing her anguish and sufferings? It's not that she tries to hide it, well maybe a few times (which is also stupid), but she shows it most of the times. I understand that authors need to create conflicts to keep readers interested or to lengthen the story. But I appreciate real problems, let him be the jerk because he is a jerk or he at first didn't love the heroine. I don't care about PC, I can take the mean or cruel hero. But I can not stand stupid hero. Don't let it be that he is this way, she is this way because of some stupid misunderstandings or because of someone's meddling. Here comes the most meddlesome brother I have ever encountered in all romance novels I have read. He interfered with their wedding night which leads to the biggest problem the couple encountered. even some few years later, he meddled in a very horrible way with their marriage.Read more ›
