Review

Johanna Lindsey Outstanding...wonderfully unique in plot and characters, and beautifully told...delightful.

Judith McNaught A beautiful love story. One of the best books I have read in a very long time.

From the Publisher

Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past untily the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching sensous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wild fire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to posess her...

But the fiesty and defiant Christina would not be do easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses. She dared not surrender to his love...for then, she must also forsake her precious secret...and her promised destiny.

Christina Bennett has come to London to avenge her mother's death. She uses her European title of Princess Christina when she is presented to London society. Christina hides many secrets - particularly that she was raised by American Native Indians. At times, her presentation to and acceptance by London society seems a little stretched but it is such a great story that you overlook those little bits of non-reality.
Lyon, The Marquis of Lyonwood, is a cynical and hard man. He has the usually rakish views of English historical romance in that he does not believe in love or even expect to meet a woman that could mean more to him than the physical side of a relationship.
Christina and Lyon meet at a party and from the first glimpse, they know their attraction to each other is certainly unique. Although Lyon doesn't want a relationship with a woman beyond a mistress, he finds himself seeking out Christina again and again. Christina is unlike any woman he has ever met, she is rather blunt and does not fear or hide her fierce attraction to Lyon. Since Lyon has a lot of experience solving mysteries, through his secretive work for the English government, he senses when something is not truthful. And he senses Christina is not being entirely truthful when answering questions about her past. Lyon becomes almost obsessed with finding out about Christina's past and finds himself wildly attracted to her. Christina, in turn, is very attracted to Lyon but will not tell him her secrets because she must maintain her Princess front and knows she will return to America eventually.
This is my third Garwood book. I would have rated them all 5 stars but this is the best one yet. The humor is subtle but at times makes you laugh out loud.

"Lion's Lady" is my favorite Julie Garwood novel, and I have read them all. The love story is great, the sensuality is charmingly warm, and the various characters just seem to come alive on the page. The humor which constantly arises due the the contrasting cultures made me laugh all through the book. Christina and Lyon are both intelligent, likeable and strong. The lurking sense of danger which threads through the book makes the plot satisfying, and Christina's mother's journal entries (which start each chapter) are very poignant. I just love this book and would encourage anyone who loves the Regency genre to read it.

While I generally enjoy Garwood's Highland-based stories, this one, set in England, was pretty good. Christina has been raised by indians, but is now back in England to claim her heritage. Lyon is the man she marries, to keep her devilish father from getting his hands on the money. This is one of the cases, where the couple is already in love before they marry, but she fears she will lose him, if he knows that she was raised with an indian family. The story and character development wasn't as strong in this book, as they are in other Garwood books. However, the journal entries that begin each chapter, are very interesting, and I found myself looking forward to reading those, more than the actual story.

My first book by Julie Garwood turned out to be one of my favourite romances of all time (that includes books by Woodiwiss and Lindsey. The best thing about the book was its unique storyline, with Christina starting off as a child in the Indian territories of America and ending up a star in London's high society.
The book was both amusing and moving, with fast paced dialogue between the characters. I have since read nearly all of Julie Garwood's books. This one is for keeps.

This was a reread for me. I liked it this time as much, if not more than I did the first time.

It's the start of a series... (the next being Guardian Angel).

Princess Christina is the main topic of gossip with everyone in London. The mysterious Princess is beautiful, warm and friendly. The people of London no virtually nothing about her.

Rumors grow and eventually reach Lyon the Marquis of Lyonwood. Lyon is a somewhat bitter man who has chosen to close himself off from society. While he is physically and financially attractive, he usually scares off potential loves. He likes it that way.

While escorting his sister to a party he hears of the princess. Men are lusting for her and woman want to be her best friend. He can't believe the hype is warranted. Then she walks in to the party. He is blown away by her beauty.

His interest in her starts off as a curiosity. He wants to know where she came from and what she is about. Christina isn't giving any answers.

As they get to know eachother, Lyon's not sure if her answers are truth, but he is determined to get to the bottom of her mysterious past. Christina is just as determined to hide it.

This is a fun romance that is trully beleivable. Both characters are great characters. You really like them from the start. You sympathize with their pasts and admire their strenghts.

Christina is a strong heroine with just the right mix of femininity, independance and vulnerability. She is tough with out being stand offish.

Lyon is a strong leading male with an extraordinary sensitivity and wit. He is smart, handsome, loving and protective. A little arrogant and very worth the read.

Both characters have some issues, Christina more than Lyon. But it is great reading them falling in love while everything comes together.
