LOVING LUCIANNA is a sweet romance like a medieval ballad. It stars a heroic knight with courtly manners and his worthy lady.
Sir Balduin and Lucianna are middle-aged, and past the time they ever thought they'd be married. But they find each other, fall in love, and become engaged. And then Lucianna's secret past catches up with her. The noble Lucianna feels she must leave Sir Balduin and break their hearts in order to protect him. But Sir Balduin won't let her go without a fight.
LOVING LUCIANNA is full of history, mystery, humor, romance, and wonderful surprises.
A hallmark of every DiPastena book is the rich, accurate history. In LOVING LUCIANNA, she even included a fun tidbit from her own family history.
So read LOVING LUCIANNA, and enjoy it for the history, mystery, humor, romance, and surprise ending. And have fun guessing which bit came from the author's own ancestor.
Ms. DiPastena knows her history and the right way to write romance. I loved reading what she terms an 'Autumn' romance meaning the characters are more mature and experienced in their lives, and also set in their ways.
There were so many obstacles to this love match that I sometimes wondered if there was going to be a HEA. Family issues, protective hearts, the other's happiness at stake. A wonderfully winding tale.
I loved the secondary characters and how they were tied to other novels she's written. It was nice to see familiar faces I've already come to love.
As always, I will certainly be happy to read more by Ms. DiPastena.
Whenever I find characters that I like right away, I'm a happy reader. From the start, I adored Lucianna and her spunky nature. The way she dealt with a threat was believable to me, though I silently rooting for her to make different choices. And Sir Balduin was a perfect gentleman, trying so hard to win her heart by any means necessary.
The details included in the story of the era were fascinating and something I always look for when reading any historical novel.
I would definitely recommend this one to any reader who enjoys characters who have some years on them.
Readers of the past novels by the author will recognize Lucianna and Balduin from Illuminations of the Heart, so some familiarity will already be present on the onset of our story. But the author has created a whole new set of scenarios for our leads to overcome to culminate their budding romance. I, at times, found the whole slimy brother idea a bit eye-rolling, but I know I was nibbling on my fingernails with everyone else to see if our two lovers could overcome the odds for each other.
The only thing I felt annoyed at was the overuse of Lucianna’s “passionate” nature and how it impacted the story line. Her being so subsumed by fear at her past and what her brother could reveal I could understand. But I gotta say that some of the “excuses” that she uses to push Balduin away were just stupid and eye-roll worthy after a while. And she just kept at it right up till the very end! It seemed like either the author or the character was stuck in a characterization rut and just couldn't get out of it until the very end.
But besides that, I found this book incredibly sweet and romantic. I think the idea of two older leads finding love just wonderful, especially in a time frame in history where they had actually reached the expected age before death struck. The author has created another wonderful romance, and I for one can’t wait for more in this series.
Overall, Loving Lucianna was an enjoyable and sweet romance. I appreciated that it was clean. I enjoyed the historical setting, the feeling of finding home and family where you may not be looking for it and that a bond could be found stronger between those not related by blood. I would definitely recommend this to those who enjoy sweet historical romance or romance in general.
