  1. 3.633 Nottttttttt Enoughhhhhhhh Babe Stars no idiots were killed during the writing of this review wellwell since my reviewing skill is so low that it drops off the scale altogether, am gonna make this review pretty not short just to add another stuff to my worst review ever resume, so just bear with me and my luggage of nonsense The heroine, Miss Bri something was stupid.The hero, Sir Rowland was just as stupid.Her step Aunt, D something was stupid too.His father, Luthor was almost just as stup [...]


  2. This seems to be a love it hate it type of book I loved it Rowland had a vulnerability that sets him apart from the typical bodice ripper alpha Spoilers He does rape her once, but it s not brutal or described in detail He doesn t intend to hurt her, he just thinks it is his right since she s supposedly his slave Right 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 [...]


  3. One of my least favorite of JL s oldies, I still consider it just okay.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.When Rowland of Mountville happens upon what he believes is a peasant girl on his path to repay a debt to a gentleman who sa [...]


  4. So Speaks The Heart reminded me of why I love the older Johanna Lindsey books It takes place in France A.D 972 and she does a great job in her discriptions of the castle, keep , the knights and the serfs I felt like I had a really nice mental holliday I loved the mistaken i.d theme 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 serv [...]


  5. This waste of ian 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 nev [...]


  6. 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, who [...]


  7. 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 is trying to break her spirit and make her go along with a scheme to sell her in marriage to a creepy rich neighbor who likes to hurt women 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 Druod [...]


  8. 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 release Then [...]


  9. Tan horrible como lo esperaba Es tan caotica y pasan tantas cosas est pidas e innecesarias que ni s por donde empezar a criticar Desde personajes estereot picos hasta una ambientaci n completamente err nea y una representaci n de las costumbres totalmente alejada de la realidad Un caos de sucesos que simplemente sirven para llenar p ginas Desconozco completamente a esta Johanna Lindsey porque me consta que tiene buenos libros.Es decepcionante que por culpa de estas novelas se critique a todo el [...]


  10. C est toujours un plaisir de relire cette romance historique qui est l une des premi res que j ai lues Le caract re de l h ro ne m a toutefois un peu tap sur les nerfs, s emporter pour un oui ou pour un non 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.


  11. Es de esos libros que aunque tienen un poquito de cursiler a hacen re r, ayudan a pasar un buen rato y desconectar Yo los veo como un cuento antes de dormir o si se est triste y esta escritora es muy divertida.


  12. 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 lo [...]


  13. Get rid of the rape being justified by but your body wants me, and I would have given this one 3 stars barely A dominant man might be nice, but a rapist needs to be stabbed I d really get pissed at the author for this one, but I realized it was written in the early 80 s and apparently rape was considered sexy then so I ll move on since her modern stuff doesn t seem to have this theme Whomever started the idea of a sexy rape scene should be smacked I can t believe women let authors get away with [...]


  14. Bintang 5Arghhh Bacanya sambil jerit Kesal, sedih, marah, sebel, campur aduk 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.Ingin kasih tahu Rowland yg sebenarnya, tapi tak bisa Apadaya aku hanyalah seorang pembaca yg haru [...]


  15. my problem with the book stems from the poor character development, and the lack of any real agency in her characters until the end And for the big brash knight to suddenly decide he ll be nice for some slave Unlikely And his reasons for doing so are not really established You dont really get a solid feel for either main character The hero s dad come across as a much clearer and complex person than either of them I suspect this was her first book, though not the first one published, if you get [...]


  16. 3.5 rating, it was good for a medieval tale, had a few good twists But left important threads dangling a bit I find I need justice served not just implied Happened than once Not bad but not great.


  17. Now this is the type of book that makes Johanna s name a well respected historical romance author.I think that me saying I go over this book many times a year even though I remember and know everything that happens, speaks for itself, does it not


  18. Lagi lagi nggak connect dgn karya author Heran jg krn author kan salah satu author fave gw Pertama yg bikin ngamuk adalah cover terjemahannya Parah abis ngaconya Isi novel ini ttg historical romance era Medieval abad 10 Tetapi lihatlah covernya, seorang lady mengenakan gaun hijau berenda dan memegang payung yg jelas jelas dari era Victorian atau Edwardian Kutu kupret penipuannya.Kedua, lagi2 temanya salah paham melulu dimana heroine nya si Brigitte dikondisikan spt Cinderella malang yg dianiaya [...]


  19. talmente tanto ridicolo che non sono sicura meriti neanche una stella Assolutamente orribile Talmente tanti difetti che non so da dove cominciare Non so come si possa definire trama quanto ho appena letto, il complotto della famiglia paradossale, il cambiamento di lui infondato, lei assolutamente frustrante, la storia idem, drammi senza capo n coda, situazioni complicate che si risolvono senza una reale motivazione Lei che a momenti piange anche per dire ciao, la schiaffeggiano e subito dopo si [...]


  20. With a plot that tells of a hard warrior, who despite being a bastard will inherit lands and riches, you wouldn t think he d be so stupid to not see a lady when faced with one But ho A man of war having no doubts that he will sire bastards all over France to see him in such a state Boy, was I THRILLED to see him moping so.Now, it s not really my type of guy one who gullible enough to believe that someone as ladylike as Brigitte to be a servant But I can just imagine him Two stubborn main charact [...]


  21. Tan horrible como lo esperaba Es tan caotica y pasan tantas cosas est pidas e innecesarias que ni s por donde empezar a criticar Desde personajes estereot picos hasta una ambientaci n completamente err nea y una representaci n de las costumbres totalmente alejada de la realidad Un caos de sucesos que simplemente sirven para llenar p ginas Desconozco completamente a esta Johanna Lindsey porque me consta que tiene buenos libros.Es decepcionante que por culpa de estas novelas se critique a todo el [...]


  22. Ugh, I really really hated that hero Abusive rapist pig.Sure, it s probably true to the time it takes place in, but I didn t find it at all romantic.


  23. So far, my fav two Lindsey s have been Man of My Dreams and Captive of My Desires This one, pretty bad Very stilted dialogue No chemistry


  24. She was born a lady, heiress to rich French estates But when Rowland of Montville captured her, he saw only a beautiful girl garbed in peasant s rags a wench to serve his wants.



  25. The dialogues were horrible as well as the historical elements that were most of the time illogical But I still read it through the end so it was not that bad BUT it was not a good book either.


  26. Brigitte de Louroux, putri dari seorang baron dengan wajah cantik bermata biru dan berambut pirang Setelah berita tentang kematian kakak tirinya, Quintin, bibi tiri Brigitte langsung berubah dan ingin menguasai Louroux Druoda menyiksa Brigitte seperti pelayan, berniat menjodohkannya dengan Lord tua dan gemuk yang menginginkan seorang anak laki laki, kemudian menyingkirkan Brigitte yang merupakan pewaris Luoroux dan menjadi penguasa Luoroux itu sendiri Namun kedatangan Rowland of Montville ke Lou [...]


  27. ah bab 7 gak ada sebel banget yah terlepas dari itu aku cukup suka dengan para tokoh dan ceritanya walau diakhirinya seperti itu, aku mulai berpikir itu adalah ciri khas lindsey walau menyebalkan.tapi lindsey memang hebat dalam mengaduk perasaan pembaca, di awal cerita saja aku sudah kesel dengan Druoda yang memperlakukan Brigette dengan manipulasi begitu pula untuk Rowland dan Quinntin, dan membuat terenyuh dengan kata kata sang hero Brigette, apa yang ingin kau dengar dariku Kalau aku sanggup [...]


  28. Very enjoyableThe romantic story ofRoland and Brigitte was a lovely read It warms the heart and leaves you with everything an HEA at the end of a well written story should Loved every minute of this read.
