    "The Return!"

    This last in the Medieval trilogy more closely resembles the style of the first book, Untamed, than the second book. Which is good. If you liked the first book, you'll likely be satisfied with this book. Plus, Simon is one of the main characters, instead of some two-bit secondary character from the first book who we committed ourselves to hate, only to find that we're supposed to like him enough to care what happens to him for an entire book (I speak, of course, of Duncan in Forbidden, the second book.)

    Also, that instant, love-at-first-sight, super-duper, uber-sappiness that displays itself in the second book in the form of ridiculous love-talk is mostly absent here; when it does appear, it's appropriately placed.

    A note of caution, however: the ending is rather abrupt. Happy, but abrupt. And as this last book in the trilogy was written in, uh, 1994(?), it doesn't look as though there will be any more books in the series. No cliff-hanger endings or anything, but it seems like the epilogue raises more questions than it answers.

    For fans of Untamed, enjoy!

    "FULLFILLED"

    This is a good conclusion to the trilogy. You really want these two to succeed. The writer has built characters that you want to follow through to the end of the book. I would totally recommend this book

    Story
    "Written for the modern woman"

    The entire premise rings false: rape was a common practice in the middle ages especially after sieges, wars, and invasions. Additionally, women weren't "supposed" to enjoy sex as that was done for the creation of children and for the pleasure of the only thing of value in those days: the men.

    A high born woman may hate sex after being brutally attacked, but it wouldn't kill her soul for she would know that her true value was her bloodline and her husband to be need only wait until she bled to bed her. Even if she carried another man's child, more than likely, she would still be taken to wife if her family was wealthy and powerful enough. Eleanor of Aquitaine was considered a great beauty, but more than one scholar wrote that she could have looked like a ox and knights would have still lined up to marry her because she was the sole heir to a great fortune.

    The idea that Arianne would be killed for not being a virgin or that her father would give a handsome dowry that would have to be given back also makes no sense.

    But I suppose to a modern woman who may not comprehend a time when women had two purposes: to bear children and to pleasure and please men and that high born women had an additional value (unfair as we common folk do not possess it) of proper bloodline, the one "value" we women DO all possess, our viriginity, might be important.

    Enough for a man to die, to start a war, to end a prophecy, to begin a legend.

    To write a book.

    I am a singer and Celtic harper specializing in the music of Scotland, where I go often to study and perform. I love romance books because I like a light hearted story with a happy ending!

    "Kind of silly"

    The first book in this series was OK. The second I read in book form because I knew I couldn't stand that narrator. This book, the third, was pretty silly. Even a good narrator, Anne Flosnik, couldn't make this one very interesting. I would suggest you save your money!
