This story is just stunning I never thought a romantic historical fiction could be written to rival Flowers From the Storm by Laura Kinsale but if anyone could do it then it would be Kinsale And she did For My Lady's Heart is stellar on so many levels We have probably the most wonderful hero ever written a tortured heroine for a change incredible seamless use of medieval dialogue and terminology and imagery so vivid the reader is transported She manages to challenge as well as entertain the reader We have mystery adventure humor and a survival story as well There are so many fascinating characters to love and hate and fear There are English French and Italians and even majestic animals that play critical rolesKinsale creates a wonderful dance of attraction and repulsion between the hero and heroine and very slowly builds their connection beautifully over time She never uses any gratuitous intimacy I laughed was brought to tears and was riveted at many points In fact her writing transcends any genre I would probably have to say at this point I have not read a better author

READ For My Lady's Heart (Medieval Hearts, #1)

For My Lady's Heart Medieval Hearts #1First time readers can choose between two versions of the story Both are included in this same ebookThe first is the original published novel filled with authentic Middle English dialogue and deep period detail The second included only here in the ebook version had been painstakingly reworked by the author to include a tighter read and modern words for dialogue Whichever you decide to read you’ll be richly rewarded with a story of love and honor for the ag. This is one of the best Kinsale romances I've read and an instant favouriteI loved the language especially which isn't usual in my reading experience but that was perfectly comprehensible without the need for a dictionary And the plotline has clear Sir Gawain and the Green Knight undertones which I think was the author's intention The hero Ruck is uite compelling and the heroine though at times she can raise eyebrows is complex Their romance developed by stages was entertaining to read mostly because the woman is the one taking the lead because the hero is a monkish man at first a teasing nickname that ended up being a term of endearmentI highly recommend this novel as all of Kinsale's books too
