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!

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.

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...

*SPOILERS*

It took me a while to figure it out, but this book reads a lot more like a regency than a medieval romance. In a time period where women were literally chattel, for a woman to "change her mind" about a marriage, especially one arranged by royal decree, is just ridiculous. The Big Plot Twist was also fairly obvious early on, and also to the level of ridiculous.

I am a stickler for accuracy - and this book just escapes the realm of believability. We are supposed to believe that our beloved heroine has such acute hearing that she can hear a crossbow fired from behind her as she gallops away on a horse. Not only does she have super fast reaction time, but she is able to react fast enough to move her horse (and therefore herself) into the path of the flying bolt. The injury she sustains is enough to knock her from her mount, gush blood, and she loses consciousness, yet the wound is a "graze". Is she the most delicate heroine ever? Then her lover, the good boy turned bad man with a good heart, who has so much experience treating wounds on the battlefield, pours wine over the graze to stop infection. Wine does not have a high enough alcohol content to accomplish this, which he should know from experience anyway. Naturally she gets an infection, which is then treated with herbs. Her survival is not necessary outside the realm of possibility.

Our Heroine is also, sadly, not very smart. She routinely makes decisions that would (in a medieval world) lead to her death or at the very least, a fall from grace that she would never recover from.

I found this book the be fairly tedious, the characters wooden, and overall very predictable. The characters are all one dimensional, with no other motives than "because I can".
