Book Review-Shadows and Lace (Brides of Legend Book 1)-Teresa Medeiros

Friday, August 14, 2015


Do you love Historical Romances as much as I do? It is my absolute favorite genre and Teresa Medeiros is definitely one of my favorite authors of this genre and has been for many many many years. I actually read this series (for the second or third time) out of sequence but that doesn't matter-they are totally stand alone. I don't know where my original copies are but now they are on my Kindle and I will be reading them again and again.

You may find yourself routing Rowena on out loud and grumbling at Gareth. The side characters are all pretty well fully developed and you will love or love to hate them as well. I don't want to tell you too much or I will give it all away and you know I won't do that willingly! You will just have to read it for yourself.


About the Book: (from Amazon)

If a knight captures a lady, can she steal his heart?
With one careless roll of the dice, Baron Lindsey Fordyce gambles away his beautiful daughter Rowena. Spirited away to an imposing castle, Rowena finds herself pressed into the service of a dark and forbidding knight accused of murder…and much more.

Handsome, brooding Sir Gareth of Caerleon has spent years waiting for his chance for revenge. But when he seeks to use the fair Rowena to slay the ghosts of his past, he finds himself ensnared in a tender trap of his own making…a trap he can only escape by surrendering his heart.

Book 1 in the “Brides of Legend” Series, which includes:

I can't imagine having been captured and falling in love... But I guess that it would be a bit flattering...back then. Now we call it kidnapping :)
