Publisher's Summary

The year is A.D. 1333. At the conclusion of the English victory of Halidon Hill, King Edward appoints Stephen of Pembury the Guardian Protector of the newly captured city of Berwick. To cement this victory, he orders Stephen to marry the defeated Scottish commander's daughter, the Lady Joselyn de Velt Seton. In a marriage meant to symbolize the English domination over the Scots, Stephen is nonetheless attracted to his new bride; a petite, raven-haired beauty with pale blue eyes. Joselyn is a lady with a horrific past and dark secrets of abuse. She is resistant to the marriage at first but eventually her attraction to Stephen proves too much to resist and the pair fall deeply in love. But even as their love blossoms, Scots insurgents counter attach Berwick and Stephen is taken prisoner. As the Guardian Protector of Berwick, he is a mighty prize for the Scots and his public execution has been ordered. Stephen's old friends, Tate de Lara (Dragonblade) and Kenneth St. Hever (Island of Glass) must plot Stephen's rescue even as Joselyn and unexpected allies launch their own rescue attempt. It's a race against time to save Stephen from the executioner's sword in this tale of conquest, dark secrets, and everlasting love.

    "Cornflower blue eyes..."

    This was a great story, and I enjoyed the narrator. HOWEVER, if I had to hear about the "cornflower blue eyes" of the hero one more time I'd have thrown my "listening device" at the author. Seriously, couldn't an editor have picked up the repetition?

    Story
    "Love thy enemy"
    What did you love best about The Savage Curtain?

    I loved the fact the Stephen, the H, was such a compassionate man and healer as well as a fierce knight. I appreciated the inner strength of his love, Jocelyn, despite her history.
    I also think that the setting, in the castle during an extended battle, was a fascinating setting for this love story!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Savage Curtain?

    I think that their less than auspicious begining was truly memorable! I can't imagine a more tragic first meeting. Well I could, but I wouldn't want one!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I truly enjoyed the plotting and bravery of Cade and Roman. Those two are memorable characters in and of themselves, but their courage, and the humour surrounding some of their actions really set them apart.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think it was when Kenneth realized how and why one of his two best friends, Stephen, had fallen for Jocelyn. He was so thoughtful toward his friend's wife and his loyalty to that friend was not the only reason he felt the need to protect her. I believe he grew to respect and admire her as well. When he placed his hands on the sides of her face and turned away- I felt his angst over the situation.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful story and Tim Campbell did another fine job of narrating. I especially enjoyed his use of differing accents in this one! I recommend this audiobook to anyone who wants a terrific story!

    I love how Kathryn writes her characters. She weaves depth, emotion, love and despair to the very end. Tim did a good job narrating.

    "cornflower blue eyes"

    This is the second time I've read this series but the first time on audible. I loved this story and would have really liked to give it 5 stars, the only thing holding me back was the overuse of the description of Stephens eyes. I know it sounds petty but it really dogs detract from my overall enjoyment of the story. I do enjoy the narrator and have listened to several of his interpretations and I will continue to and Katgryn le Veque is still up there with my favourite authors but please I get that his eyes were gorgeous.

    Story
    "Cornflower Blue Eyes .... ENOUGH"
    What would have made The Savage Curtain better?

    If the mention of the "cornflower blue eyes" could only have been mentioned a hundred times versus a thousand!


    If you’ve listened to books by Kathryn Le Veque before, how does this one compare?

    I really like Le Veques stories ............ the only thing that ruined this one was, have I mentioned them before? The cornflower blue eyes!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tim Campbell?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All three of the above........ because of those bloody cornflower blue eyes!


    Any additional comments?

    It takes a lot for me not to finish a book, especially one in a series. I could not do it. The mention of the cornflower blue eye, first made me roll my eyes, then I thought it was a funny mistake ................ I had to stop listening. The repeated mention of the "cornflower blue eyes" absolutely ruined a decent book.

    "Not as good... but entertaining"

    Not as good as some of the others I've listen to by this author, maybe I'm excepting top entertainment ever time I purchase an audio book by KL, but trust and believe I will listen to anything she writes.
    For some reason I feel her stories are more real than must. Narrator great as usual.

    "A whole new level of Awesome Author/Narrator!"

    I am so happy to find Katheryn le Veque's novel's . It's the first time in a while I have been able to listen all the way through a book without feeling anxious (due to boredom or there is to much inner dialog that never ends) Katheryn has so much in her books that keeps me listening or reading.
    Thank you Katheryn !

    Story
    "The Savage Curtain"

    My review is shy of a five star rating because I grew tired of the constant description of blue eyes, and butterfly kisses. I thought the author could have placed more story on the cousin, earlier days ,and relationship ties.
    JoJo irritated me to no end. She was always acting like she knew better, and by the end of the day she only made matters worse for her"beloved". All in all although unrealistic behavior for women in that time, I still think The author has a winning appeal on her story lines.
