Anne Stuart ✓ 3 readI won t synopsize because I m feeling lazy just look at the blurb but immediately I liked the characters and the setting medieval probably my favorite historical settingof Hidden Honor by Anne Stuart and it uickly became a fast read There s a bit of a twist at the very beginning of this tale but it s not really much of a mystery as the author chooses to reveal the twist arly on Anyway the heroine Elizabeth is feisty and although the author does start off telling rather than showing us how intelligent and rebellious she is Stuart ventually gets down to business and completes the character development rather nicely The hero and side characters for that matter are just as ngaging and I think you ll fall for them just as I didOne glaring problem is the technical part of the book
I m not the best judge of s right or wrong grammatically obviously but this book had some big offenders One xample not only did she start sentences with AND she did it over and over To the point of serious annoyance I m guessing this was an arlier book for Ms Stuart and that the ditor was a bit lazy Other than that I did like the book and found it a nice distraction for a couple hours I think my last Stuart medieval had actually been the wonderful Lord of Danger a very long time ago before blog so I ll have to reread and review one of these days and so I was Infamous eager to start this one I liked it it s Anne Stuart in the bad boy hero in the secondary romance but thend had a lightness that disappointed me a bit I want those serious dark feelings she made me look forElizabeth de Bredon is a skinny redhead young girl who is too smart for her own good Since her father cannot marry her he has decided she will go the convent When they "Are Visited By Prince William Bastard Son "visited by Prince William bastard son King John and his men who are doing penance and pilgrimage because the prince known for his cruelty has murdered a young lady Elizabeth s father decides she will go with them From the beginning that there s something between Elizabeth and th B at AAR so 35 stars For this month s TBR challenge I found myself with an Walled embarrassment of riches in the TBR pile My stack of books is much Fabulous story fabulous characters It s a story of guilt penance and what happens when a cast of characters become caught between two men with very different ideas of what guilt is and what penance is reuired to atone for it Like all the Anne Stuarts I ve read the story itself is so rich that the characters just slot in soasily The book doesn t labor over ach individual s physical or motional attributes It doesn t need to and I love that I also love the medieval setting which is fairly well described but doesn t crowd the story nor the characters A classic Anne Stuart romance though the hero was less dangerous And Threatening Than Her threatening than her type I really liked it and the feisty heroine when she wasn t making comments about how good she was in judging men but the hero was a little too self procrastinating for my tastesA lot of action adventure a great secondary romance and some nice characters ntertaintment guaranteed 35 stars After reading and LOVING Lord of Danger I was looking for another medieval romance by Anne Stuart and came across Hidden Honor But this one didn t give me the same feeling as Lord of Danger nowhere near it TBH So there ll be no full review for this onePeter our H is a monk who went to Crusade He was a normal knight before that but now atoning for his sins done during Crusade And for that reason he d taken vows for the strictest order of monks he could find It intrigued me to know that the H was a monk cause I don t think I read another book where the hero was one Now Peter alongside. Independent and headstrong Elizabeth of Bredon wants only to become a nun but her journey to the convent of St Anne's threatens her choice It's not the scort of holy friars who tempt her but the man they are taking to do pen. A coterie of King s men disguised "as monks were accompanying a bastard prince to a monastery to be cleaned off of his latest "monks were accompanying a bastard prince to a monastery to be cleaned off of his latest Peter was disguised as the Prince himself while the Prince was masuerading as one of the monks This Prince really was uite a piece of work A cruel sadistic POS his history with Peter during Crusade comes to life later in the story which also xplained why there was so much nmity between them which was palpable Snowbound Seduction even to someone like our h ElizabethAt any case I liked Peter and thought he was a hot monk He actually was a very sexually active man but since his return from the Crusade he d been celibate On that one regard I agreed with Elizabeth But for the most part I could never connect with her She was uite young and impulsive But what frustrated me most about her was that though I didn t think she was horribly dimwitted or something most of the times her confidence was utterly misguided Misplacedven Which did make me facepalm a few times It led to some contrived misunderstandings between her and Peter that could ve been avoided otherwise IMO It might have to do with the fact that she grew up largely sheltered and had no idea of the horrors that lay on the outside world Whatever is the case I had a difficult time with her and I thought she wasn t a good match for Peter He needed someone matured In the Surgical Theatre even worldly Maybeven someone like Dame JoannaWith Joanna comes the part of the story that I actually loved It was the secondary romance between Joanna who was a courtesan and Peter s cousin Adrian who was a knight He was one of the men accompanying the Prince and they met while staying at one of the castles where Joanna was the mistress to one of the lords I really wished the author wrote pages on them rather then Elizabeth s shenanigans I still don t know why Hinterlands and Commodities: Place, Space, Time and the Political Economic Development of Asia Over the Long Eighteenth Century exactly Peter was so attracted to her I don t want to sound harsh but it must ve been that aforementioned celibacy Overall though I liked the story because it kept me hooked it wasn t a favorite of mine by Anne Stuart But I ll continue to check through her backlist for my next favorite I read this about three years ago Perhaps 35 stars I liked the redemptive theme of this book The only historical romance I have read by Anne StuartI liked this book wellnough ven though it is far from historically sound and chock full ofnow i m not the best judge of
