I loved Bernard! He was a gentle giant, and the story of his heroine Joanna, was
heart wrenching. When they first meet, she's married to an abusive husband.
Those scenes, while not graphic, were well-done and had my heart racing near
the end--would Bernard save her from her husband, when he had no right to?

I enjoyed this story immensely, and wish it had been longer. I look forward to
reading A Whisper of Rosemary, about Bernard's brother who meets up with
another character who was introduced in this book.

An interesting quick read. There is no romance here. Boy (17) meets married woman (18) for no reason falls head over heals. But finds out here husband is a brute but what husband isn't in Medieval times). He looks for a way to get her free from her husband.
There is no sex in the book, but there is a lot of brutality. While the reality of a woman's position in Medieval socity is fact, I'm not sure I want to subject younger members of my family to it.
What really peeked my interest is in the sequal. When the Bernard's brother meets the healer. I hope that will be a better read.

Lavender Vows by Collen Gleason

I loved this tender love story about Lord Bernard and Lady Joanna. Lord Bernard falls in love with Lady Joanna the first time he sees her. She is married to an abusive man and Bernard wants to rescue her from this horrid marriage and marry her. There is action, suspense and true love which makes this a lovely love story. The story moves swiftly with a wonderful ending.

I can't wait to read A Whisper of Rosemary, the story of Bernard's brother Dirick and Maris, the Lady of Firmain and Cleonis, the next in the series.

A sweet story where the hero is a stud - who has zero interest in settling down - and sees a girl and is entranced by her - then realizes (1) that she is married. Super bummer. Then (2) he sees bruises on her arms, puts two and two together and realizes her husband beats her. Chest thumping ensues and eventually love conquers all (including the nasty hubby. Deep sigh of relief.

This was free on Amazon and introduced me to a new author and a new series so I gave it a try. This was a very short novel and I read it in under an hour. Overall, I really enjoyed this and will be checking out the other novels in this series.

Bernard is a young man, heir to a great holding, and under persistent pressure from his father to marry. However, when Bernard finally discovers the woman he wants, he finds that not only is she already married, but she is wed to an abusive monster. Joanna has been living in hell for the past year since being wed to Ralf. She has spirit, but sadly, most of that has been beaten out of her as she fears for her life. Upon meeting Bernard, she feels a spark of life and a desperate hope for a different future.

This was only 70 pages so you can predict where the story was going and what would happen to the villainous Ralf. Despite this predictability, I still enjoyed the story and thought that Gleason did a nice job introducing new characters for her other books in the series, while also crafting a nice romance that felt complete in the short page length.

The writing style had a lot of medieval flavor and I enjoyed the chivalry theme that wove throughout. I will definitely be trying out the next story!

I enjoy reading historical fiction and romances. So, I was excited about reading this one. I was very disappointed. The story concept was great. Yet, as others have noted, there was not much development of the characters and everything happened so fast. In fact, much of it was not accurate for the time period. This bothered me.

You will find a love story here with a gentle man who will kill to protect the one he loves and a woman who needs rescuing. But that is about all you get. It leaves the reader wanting more but of a deeper quality. Everything was too quick and abrupt. It is a book with potential to be a great book but at the moment is just okay.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I quite like a nice short story. The author does a good job of it and I think a full length novel would have been too much. I certainly wouldn't want to read a full length novel about the h being abused by her husband. I enjoyed this story so much that I'm going to go back and re-read the other Medieval Herb Garden books (I bought them some time back).

I liked the story a lot. It has a real sweet hero, Bernard and a beautiful, abused heroine, Johanna.

The husband of Johanna was a real sadistic bully. One wonders way her father would have wed such a beauty to this monster. Was Daddy one as well, or just a careless, heartless product of his time, when a chatel was property and could be abused without recourse.

In any case I liked the story. It was a very short read. It probably only took me about an hour if that, but there was a lot packed into it.

Would recommend it, especially if you are looking to fill up an hour or so.
