No, of course not, but in historical context it is accurate. He believed she was his property and he intended to look after her and protect her. He didn't really understand what her problem was with yielding to him, which was kinda funny at times. After the initial rape, though, he decides he wants to see her smile at him and doesn't want to have to force her.
So, he tries to be more gentle and patient with her. He courts her even though he believes she's just a servant. I found it endearing because Rowland was basically a brute who had never been to court or had much experience with "ladies". He was really out of his depth and so dense at times.
He courts her even though he believes she's just a servant. I found it endearing because Rowland was basically a brute who had never been to court or had much experience with "ladies". He was really out of his depth and so dense at times.
Normally that would really bother me, but I can see where he was conflicted. He warned her that was what would happen and any other slave would have probably been stripped and flogged without question.
Again, historical context.
I do not feel Brigitte was actually hurt. She was afraid, appalled, and not used to such treatment, but she didn't have scars, marks, etc. So he stole someone's son, from a town or sth over. Just fucking do a fucking adoption will you?!!!!! Woff was stupid because Stupidity is in the air peeps! View 1 comment. Apr 25, Zeek rated it it was ok. Brigette is forced to live as a scullery because her half brothers Aunt who has come to live in their household while her brother is away at war, has convinced everyone that is where she belongs.
Practically living as a captive in her own home, the French heiress has little recourse but to attempt to run. Take what he wants and damn the consequences. Forced together because of lies and an unfortunate incident exacerbated by her Aunt's lies, Rowland stubbornly refuses to believe she is anything more than what she appears to be.
Because of love she begins to feel for him, she will overlook that The beginning of their relationship is fraught with misunderstanding and one would say he forced her thru their first time together, but mostly because both were out of the minds- one with drink and one with pain.
She definitely changes him and her determination to keep her nobility even when everyone tries to make her into something else, endears her to the reader. Still, meh. Now I will. Nov 08, Elizabeth rated it did not like it.
This waste of siteian forest was not only awful, nonsensical and so bad it remained forever bad, but also exhaustingly, thunderously boring. One could not even seek refuge in the blessings of trashy imagery; evil females stripping the heroine bare to have her creamy flesh flayed, ancient Counts with BDSM chambers this sadly is only alluded to, we never get an invite to said Count's vices , or amuse oneself with the ridiculous modes of address, the dialogues, the rudimentary character sketches This waste of siteian forest was not only awful, nonsensical and so bad it remained forever bad, but also exhaustingly, thunderously boring.
One could not even seek refuge in the blessings of trashy imagery; evil females stripping the heroine bare to have her creamy flesh flayed, ancient Counts with BDSM chambers this sadly is only alluded to, we never get an invite to said Count's vices , or amuse oneself with the ridiculous modes of address, the dialogues, the rudimentary character sketches that never make it to the level of rudimentary character sketches, and the swift transportation of the heroine from one place to an other not bad for a girl who is, we are told, a prisoner who cannot escape -she constantly does, btw by some spectacular plot salti mortali assurdi so much so, you'd think there are pages missing in between chapters.
Given all the above, it'll be pointless to dwell on whether any of the demands of semblance are met, or try to assess the writer's ability to convey a 10th c. The book never reaches the level where the need to address the requirement that a world be built, a world in which to place the romance, ever arises.
I also fear my ears are badly damaged by the constant bickering, the trivial patter, the whining idiocy of the exhausting, zero-dimensional MCs. There was a point, rather early on in the book, where I wanted some knave to run them through with his sword this happens to the hero twice, but like Lazarus he keeps coming back.
As for plot twists, what can one say other than they were obviously made up as the constipated writing chugged along the path it failed to map. In a terrible mess such as this the only saving grace would have been an interesting, or even remotely engaging, romance.
Well, you won't find it in here, and there are no purple prose sex scenes to reward the effort of reading this book to the end either. I must say that I am shocked at the high ratings this book enjoys and coming from good, astute and worthy reviewers of HRs too.
I can only say that I found it truly awful and I'm glad it is over and binned for good. Now, I can only hope that it'll also be swiftly forgotten and won't leave some lingering sulfurous smell behind. View 2 comments.

Johanna Lindsey writes in a addictive way of her own where she drowns you into the historical medieval world and simply enchants you with her intriguing characters. Plot is simply amazi The blistering Epic Love-Tale about the hardened and fear-less Warrior Rowland of Montville who will mistake the Golden-haired and stubborn Lady Brigitte of Louroux for a slave, and he will take her away on a unforgettable journey where they both will find the rapture in falling irrevocably in love with each other.
They are both characters to die for and i simply rooted for their love that are also based on so many misunderstandings.. He craved her attention and acceptance of him-AND he was willing to change for her-this hardened man with a black heart.. This is romance after all.! The ending made me cry of improbable happiness!!!

His voice was tender. What a wonder you are! And how I love you, lady. Oh, God, how I love you! I will never let you go. May 18, Noelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: It takes place in France A.
I felt like I had a really nice mental holliday. I loved the mistaken i. The H belives the h is a serf and was given to him by her wicked aunt but she is really a lady. With no way to prove otherwise and needing to excape her aunt, she goes with the with him.
The scenes where she has to serve him and take care of him as a serf would do was fun to read, and the twist at the end with the H's family was really good too. Oct 05, Sue Lyndon rated it really liked it Shelves: This novel started out a little rough for me because I was a taken aback by Rowland's inital treatment of Bridgette. But considering the horrible childhood Rowland had, it was a wonder he didn't behave even worse than he did.
Really, it was a wonder he didn't just leave Bridgette to be stoned to death by her aunt at the beginning.
Bridgette challenged Rowland from the start and tried several times to escape, but he wss never as brutal with her as I expected him to be in these instances. Rowland, This novel started out a little rough for me because I was a taken aback by Rowland's inital treatment of Bridgette.
Rowland, who never before thought he'd desire marriage or having just one woman, becomes so attached to Bridgette that he can't imagine letting her go. This blinds him to the fact that she is actually a lady as she claims - instead of a servant.
In fact, it takes a whole army to show up as his fief to believe she's the lady she's been claiming to be all along. Bridgette is able to forgive him for the pain he's caused her, over and over again.
She is troubled by the truth of his childhood and aches for the little boy who knew no love. She even cares enough to help him discover his true identity and force him to face it down. When they are separated for months right before the conclusion, it seems that too much time has passed for Bridgette to forgive Rowland's absence. But Rowland risks imprisionment by Bridgette's brother to finally come after her a second time.
Her anger towards him is so strong, she lies and says she feels nothing for him - but with the help of her brother she realizes she still loves him. The end of this novel is actually very beautiful. Nov 20, Elle rated it it was ok. This is one of those stories where I just didn't think the heroine ever did enough to help herself. She starts the story virtually the slave of her evil, greedy aunt. Auntie Druoda what a name! Briggitte escapes her aunt, only to run into the "hero," Rowland, who decides to take her into custody--and he just happens to be heading back to her home, where e This is one of those stories where I just didn't think the heroine ever did enough to help herself.
Briggitte escapes her aunt, only to run into the "hero," Rowland, who decides to take her into custody--and he just happens to be heading back to her home, where evil Druoda waits. OK, she's wearing rags, so he assumes she's an escaped serf. If at ANY point in the first several chapters she had made ANY effort to explain her situation to him, a lot of misery could be avoided. All she'd ever have to do is mention her brother, and that would wake the hero up to the truth.
He, meanwhile, is basically TSTL throughout the entire story.
So Speaks the Heart
He doesn't much like or trust women, so he's not inclined to believe the heroine--but for some reason, he DOES believe Druoda who tells him Briggitte is a serf who gets above herself and pretends to be a lady. And for some reason, he asks Briggitte for her word more than once, and is happy to accept it when she gives it, but he refuses to believe her when she tries to correct his misconception.
FINALLY there comes a point where he admits she might be telling the truth and that he doesn't WANT to believe because then he'd have to do the right thing by her instead of keeping her as a slave and using her without benefit of marriage. What a guy. It's an OK story. Just OK. Sep 06, Beth McVeigh rated it it was amazing. Everyone loves a Lindsey! I am certainly no exception. This book in particular holds a special place in my heart as it was the very first historical romance I ever read.
Up to this book I was reading only contemporary series romances, such as Harlequin, Silhouette and Loveswept. My Aunt Jill lend me this one from her book shelf, and it was all over for me. This was my niche.
I read each and every Lindsey novel that had been published to date, and then began the agonizing wait for the next releas Everyone loves a Lindsey! I read each and every Lindsey novel that had been published to date, and then began the agonizing wait for the next release. Then the drooling over the hardcover editions I had no way of affording with my papergirl wages Hey, I was like 13 at the time.
Then finally the paperback would be released, and I would download, devour it in hours and the agonizing would start anew. I can still remember reading, rereading and then re-rereading my books over and over again while waiting for my favorite authors to get with the program, and feed my addiction. I remember the joy of discovering yet one more author that would take precious space on my bookshelves, after all only the greats made my "collection.
Especially now that a lot of them are being reprinted, but not with their cover art. The cover art on those books were the stuff of dreams to a pubescent teenager.
After writing this I realize it has been years since I last read this one, or anything from my collection case. The hubby is away this weekend, and I'm thinking it would be a great time to catch up with some old friends. Dec 28, Debbie DiFiore rated it liked it.
Why did I re-read this? I loved this book years ago when I read it and I should have left it that way.
Reading it again was disappointing and a terrible let down. Drouda, the Aunt, was an evil evil person.
So speaks the heart
Her machinations made me so angry. And then Rowland the hero was dumb as a rock. He believed her when he should have at least thought about it. That was frustrating and the way e treated the heroine was abysmal.
I just wanted to th Why did I re-read this? I just wanted to throw the book across the room several times. And the ending just didn't do it for me either. More misunderstandings and relative interference. Give me a break. I was ready to just scream. Just too much.
I took it down from four stars to three and promised myself I would not re-read another Lindsey ever. Well except for maybe that one about the slave girl, or one of the Mallory's maybe, or Oh who am I kidding. I will re-read her again but I hope it leaves a better taste in my mouth because this one was just a little too bitter for me. I really hate stupid people. And Rowland excelled at that. Tan horrible como lo esperaba. Desconozco completamente a esta Johanna Lindsey porque me consta que tiene buenos libros.
Es decepcionante que por culpa de estas novelas se critique a tod Tan horrible como lo esperaba.
Je me suis rendue compte avec surprise que cette romance prenait place en France il y en a si peu qu'il me semble important de le souligner! Sep 09, Su rated it liked it.

I will not stay away from you.
But he knew he wanted Brigitte's love. May 10, Janey rated it did not like it Shelves: I never thought I would read a book that would make me feels feel so many different ranges of emotions, all of them alluding to anger. I felt hate, dislike, disgust, and tbh by the end of the book I was just over everything. The number one thing that got on my nerve wasn't even the hero, but the heroine. She took too much from her aunt first of all, and then she wanted to act all big and bad in front of the hero.
Granted she hated him because he rapped her, but oh god did I strongly dislike her. I love strong heroines in my books, in fact most of the time I look for a heroine who can stand up for herself and fight, but there is a difference between being strong and just being a loud mouth.
The heroine's problem is that she spoke too much, and she yelled!But by God, is he really stupid not to realize his children when he sees them? Nov 20, Elle rated it it was ok. As for the rest of the book, i liked the second half of the book, but the beginning felt weak to me.

The redemption: After writing this I realize it has been years since I last read this one, or anything from my collection case. Lihat tokoh Drouda yg jahat, kejam dan manipulatif yg leluasa memerintah Brigitte untuk melakukan hal hal yg seharusnya dilakukan pelayan, sosok Brigitte yg penuh harga diri dan tak banyak berterus terang serta pemaaf, serta Rowland yg cukup bodoh untuk tidak melakukan peyelidikan terhadap kebenaran yg disampaikan Brigitte.
They believe her brother is dead, and hence the dipshit aunt has taken over her guardianship. She has even written a few sci-fi romances.
Just fucking do a fucking adoption will you?!!!!!
