    "The Conqueror is worth the read! Well written, great characters, and one felt each persons emotions and the story grew. I held my breath, my heart ached, and I laughed at the banter between Ceidra and Rolf. If you're looking to get swept away--read this book!"

    "I was looking for something new and different and this book was just what I was looking for! Most stories feature heroins as being fragile and weak, but not this book. It shows a woman that is fierce and strong in a story that is as captivating as it is beautiful. 5 stars!"

    "This book is hilarious with tons of sneaky sarcasm from a tortured soul. I reread this book pretty often when I want to escape reality for a bit and it introduced me to the world of romance novels that are actually smart and not overly-cheesy...until the end, anyways. I like that the heroine is smart and funny. Overall this is a great vacation book."

    "The Black Lyon is an interesting tale of Lady Lyonene and Ranulf de Warbrooke also known as the Black Lyon. There is much drama to be hand in this novel, romance plays a role, but in this story there is much that is not as it seems. Without giving anything away, this is a story worth following through to the end. There were times I almost stopped reading it, but I pushed through and was happy I did. It's a good read."

    "I am a big Julie Garwood fan and romance novel fan. I always enjoy Julie Garwood's characters' sense of humor, and the dialogues in her books. She did add a lovely layer of additional depth to Ransom that made for page turning fun. This book truly focuses on a story. Not just two people lusting for each other but rather it hostess and entire cast of well written characters. Great read!"

    "This novel is not what I am looking for at all. This is not a romantic novel, nor set in medieval ages. This is focused on fantasy elements, and takes place in both modern Vietnam and ancient Japan. his is likely a decent book in its own right, but not at all what I want to read right now."

    "Caught: A Historical Romance is a romance novel by Christina J Michaels. It is available from Amazon for $14.99 in paperback. It is centered around love stories of people in London during 1772. That really isn't medieval times so I don't think it really fits the topic."
