Sweetest Erienne, how could I bu Esta relectura me ha pillado con Primer sentimiento: See 1 question about A Rose in Winter…. She isn’t too picky except for good characterization, settings she can imagine, and a story that flows logically The Day of the Duchess.

Woodiwiss was a pioneer in modern historical romance when she started writing her stories more than three decennia ago. I don’t read cheap novels that wonter could probably find at a grocery store check-out line often, but, even acknowledging that it was one, it had a well constructed plot, lots of useful personalities, and each doodiwiss was a legitimate installment instead of just filler. This is one that I read shortly after I discovered The Bride.

You are my own precious love, promised to me evermore. Lord Talbot Creepy man. Christopher Seton Annoying bastard.

Mar 07, Alejandra rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was beginning to seem clear he might be the “Night Rider”, too. Plot, characterization, writing style were all crazy annoying. Also, Erienne, our heroine, seems a bit selfish. In all, he presented a most fearsome mien for a young bride seeing her future husband for the first time.

When it came to protecting himself, his wife, and his staff, he was not hit or miss. Ayyyyyyyy pero woodiwiss historia mas boniiiiita!!! This is one of my favorite romances, but I still have to read the kath,een of the books by Kathleen Woodiwiss.

A Rose in Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss

He stood aside, not making any attempt to touch her, and Erienne moved past him into the great hall. Charming, spirited and exquisitely lovely, she is beset on all sides by suitors, any one of whom would pay a king’s fortune for a place in her heart.

And then Christopher Seton reenters Erienne’s world.

What is up with that cover, where is he leaning out from. Very few in this book weren’t perverts with one-track minds, and everywhere Erienne went, guys were peaking at her cleavage or hitting on her, all in ways that would merit a sexual harassment suit nowadays.

Ha sido una delicia leer este libro, me ha gustado y entretenido a partes iguales. Ford If you find a rose in winter, it is a sign that true love once found will be restored.

I saw one one star review that says the book starts with a rape. Near the hearth she perched rigidly on the edge of a chair, poised like a bird ready to flee at the first sign of threat. He really did stalk her everywhere, and yet, like he was some kind of Edward Cullen, all that was ever described was how hawt he looked and how he’d cock an eyebrow and make her shiver or some such bullcrap. Despite everything going on around him and having to deal with a whole shitstorm of issues as a returning lord who’s suspected of murder, he really wanted a woman to “save him from his solitude” you might say, and Erienne was beginning to realize that she might be okay with that.

She, in turn, vows to be a good and loyal wife to him. This introductory post may be helpful. Another amazing story of times love.

Erienne is shallow as hell. This meant one of them, I was sure it was my mother, was reading it. The prose and pacing of the plot just flowed so smoothly and effortlessly.

First I had my doubts as to how he was going to become the hero. Defy Not the Heart. Lord Saxton’s face and head were completely covered by a black leather helm. The boot of his right leg bore a thick, heavy, wedge-shaped sole, as if for the purpose of straightening a clubbed or twisted foot. Sometimes the two are met as one. Woodiwiss died back in Roes 19, Vivian rated it it was amazing Shelves: But when description is used without the slightest thought for occasion, thesauruses become the new human brain, the act of making pancakes is woodiiwss to a life and death experience, metaphors are utterly abused, and each tree in a forest is given an individual sentence of description – whether likening it to dark and gloomy skeletons or imposing statues – I draw the line.

It destroyed a scheme that I thought would be a sure success given what I like to read.

A Rose in Winter

One thing that I give Woodiwiss credit for, her decisions on plot aside, is that she has the ability to create brain candy for the reader, where you’re just happy to munch on it and have an escape for a few hours. She died in a hospital on July 6, in Princeton, Minnesota, aged 68, from cancer.

It really was like Beauty and the Beast, where she began with terror but came to realize, gradually, that the one she was stuck with was actually the best for her.
