Review

“Tina St. John lights up the middle ages with fire and passion.”
Romantic Times

From the Author

Dear Reader,

I hope you enjoy WHITE LION'S LADY, my third medieval romance for Ivy Books. Like my other two titles, LORD OF VENGEANCE and LADY OF VALOR, I've taken an emotionally scarred hero and matched him with a woman he cannot afford to love. For Griffin of Droghallow, the hero of WHITE LION'S LADY, that woman is convent-raised heiress Isabel de Lamere, betrothed to Sebastian, Earl of Montborne, one of King Richard's most powerful vassals.

Griff never dreamed that the lady he is hired to abduct for his liege could be the same sweet girl he rescued a decade past--nor could he guess at the dark secrets surrounding his ignoble task, secrets that would brand the pair fugitives and send them on the run for Montborne. While their lives depend on reaching Isabel's betrothed, they know that their love is doomed if they do....

If you enjoy Griff and Isabel's story, I hope you'll watch for the sequel, BLACK LION'S BRIDE, coming Spring 2002! (Read a sneak peek at the back of WHITE LION'S LADY.)

How can you not like Tina St. John's medieval romance adventures!?
WLL is another winner with Isabel on her way to her betrothed, an Earl chosen by her guardian, King Richard, only to be kidnapped by none other than Griffin of Droghallow. Her childhood hero. He has changed though; there is no more heroic and gallant behaviour from the once golden boy. Now it's only raw passion and disillusionment from a fallen angel, a lost soul. Sounds good? You bet!
In her third book, Tina St. John perfects a hero so courageous, dangerous, protective and sensual, I couldn't help but fall for him. Not only that, she toped it with a heroine who matches him in all actions and emotions,creating a perfect balance of exciting action scenes and loving tender ones. Nothing pretentious about Tina's style or her characters.
I highly recommend White Lion's Lady to all you medieval romance fans out there!

Prepare yourself for an exciting medieval romance you will not want to put down.
WHITE LION'S LADY is the 1st in a 2 part series.
Eighteen year old Isabel de Lamere, ward to the Crown, is on her way to her betrothed, Sebastian Montborne (who you will read about in BLACK LION'S BRIDE). On her way to the Montborne's she is abducted by Griffin, the White Lion. She does not realize at first that this is the man who she met first as a boy, the boy whose medallion she carries everywhere she goes. The boy she remembers represents honor and chivalry.
Unfortunately Griffin has become a hardened man, made to carry out tasks that are distasteful and each day wear at his soul. His evil step-brother now sets him out on the task of kidnapping Isabel. Upon returning Isabel to his step-brother, and being denied the bounty promised him, Griffin and Isabel escape and continue on to her betrothed. During this time, they fall into a forbidden love.
Tina St. John weaves an enchanting tale of love, acceptance, and high adventure. The chemistry between these two characters sizzles, and it is a delightful read that you won't want to miss.

What a smart, sexy, heart-warming story! I *loved* these characters! From the first page, Isabel and Griffin were so real and multi-dimensional. The heroine is strong, steady, and endearing. The hero is a knight with a tortured soul. He's lost his way in life, but "Izzy" has the strength to save him, and when he starts coming around, letting his true heroic side show, he is just adorable--so protective of her and willing to sacrifice everything for her. (I guess the reviewer below just didn't pick up on the nuances, but after all, Tina St. John is not a simplistic writer.) I am VERY picky and I could not put this book down.
Tina St. John has a silky-smooth writing style that makes you feel like you're there in the medieval landscape she creates, and you never know which way the plot is going to twist and turn. I was also impressed with the very believable situation she sets up which is grounded in real history. If you love top-notch romance, you need to read this book!
St. John has a true romantic's insight into the mysteries of love. Plus, few authors can balance fast-paced adventure with such deep, poignant emotion, but St. John pulls it off flawlessly. Her books are an auto-buy!
I can't wait to read Black Lion's Bride, the companion novel to this book...

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on August 11, 2001
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Several years ago in England, King Henry II accused and executed several lords including the father of eighteen year old Isabel de Lamere for rebellion against the throne. Everything the nobles owned became forfeited to the crown, which meant that Isabel and her younger sister were now illegitimate. Their humiliated mother returned to France until word reached Isabel that she died.
In 1189 King Richard realizes that Isabel has inherited an estate in France and decides the heiress must marry an aristocrat of his choice. His highness chooses the Earl of Montborne. In spite of not trusting males, perhaps since Griffin of Droghallow saved her life a decade ago, Isabel sees Sebastian Montborne as the only hope for her much younger sibling so she agrees to wed him. However, as she travels to her wedding, her childhood hero Griffin kidnaps her and a companion, killing their escorts. Someone is willing to pay a bounty to insure Isabel does not marry Sebastian. When Griffin fails to receive his booty, he refuses to hand over his prisoner to his foster brother. As he awaits payment, Griffin and Isabel fall into a forbidden love.
WHITE LION'S LADY is an exciting medieval romance starring two strong lead characters whose love appears worthless due to the intrigue swirling every where in aristocratic England. The story line is fastthough it remains inside sub-genre guidelines. The cast makes the tale as readers will empathize with Isabel and even Griffin the kidnapper while hissing at several other players. Tina St. Johns has written an enticing twelfth century tale of star-crossed lovers that sub-genre readers will fully delight in their tale.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Long story short, the novel takes the reader to 1189 England in which Lady Isabel is kidnapped by Griffin, a knight working for another Lord to keep her from getting to her fiance. Griffin finds out there will be no forthcoming reward for this deed and hence decides to steal Isabel and take his chances with her fiance for a hefty reward for 'saving' her. Blah blah blah and they are in love...

There were a couple of things that really bothered me about Griffin, our 'flawed hero.' For starters, he's portrayed as a gallant youth in the novels prologue but in the coming chapters, it's as though he's a completely different person. The author tries to make it seem as though he was shaped into this evil man by others. But quite frankly, he had a choice throughout. His abandonment of the village folk, watching the rape of the women after he has killed her husband to defend her raper is just not winning him any ribbons from me. I was completely disgusted. For gods sake, this man worked for the villain in the novel (he was the one who actually carried out all the dirty deeds the villain assigned him!). Later on in the novel, (much too late in my opinion) he finally sees the monster he's become and how does he redeem himself? He just saves the heroine. I don't know about the other readers, but after doing all those acts, all he does is send the heroine to her fiance, it didn't seem like he redeemed himself to me. Even the process in which he saves the Isabel (by giving her away to her fiance because she will be safer-although he did have his merry way with her before he gave her away) left a bitter taste in my mouth.

Now that i've harped about Griffin enough, i'll move along. Although to give the novel some credit, I actually liked Isabel.
