4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By SusieQ on January 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is in its way a remarkable book -- like all of Christine Monson's romances, it is very original. She had a way of expressing herself that is quite unlike any other romance writer I've ever read. She wasn't the greatest romance writer in the world, but she had a unique voice, and sometimes her dialogue is stunning.

That said, there are times when this novel's plot drags a bit, yet there's always a thread of interest that keeps you reading.

This is a very unusual romance novel; particularly when you compare it to any historical romance being written today. For one thing, it's set in the time of the Crusades, and the heroine, Liliane, runs away to join the hero, Alexandre, when he's compelled (through his promise to the King of France) to go. Alexandre's furious with her, but circumstances dictate that he can't send Liliane back, so he disguises her as a man and she stays to fight by his side. The passion between the hero & heroine at this juncture is quite something. One reviewer said here that the hero has a trust issue until the end of the book --I wouldn't put it quite that way. They both admit they care for each other fairly early on in the story, but each is too stubborn; neither one will do what the other one wants! So they keep fighting & then making love, but it's not quite that they are unwillingly attracted/in love and fighting it inwardly until the very last page.

The section in the middle, when the hero and heroine are away on the Crusade, is compelling, page-turning reading. The novel has many interesting subcharacters, beginning with the King of France, no less. (There's the tiniest homosexual hint in his feelings for Alexandre.) And Liliane's horrible relatives are wonderfully evil.
