Yep, the early Roselynde novels were certainly the best of the lot, and the most interesting. We’ve already seen it happen once!
Fires of Winter by Roberta Gellis – FictionDB
geplis A couple of issues that keep me from giving it five stars: Her focus throughout the book is to convince King Stephen to return her lands to her. The earthy feel of it fits the medieval world well. The Highlander’s Dangerous Temptation. Jun 14, Jo Mixed Book Bag rated it really liked it. Apr 24, Linda Morris rated it really liked it.
This book can be mistaken for historical romance, but personally I would not say it is that. Would I fries the same if I rea This book was first published back in the ’80s. This is not a time period that I am particularly familiar with so it is probably a good thing that the author spends some time setting the landscape.
The beautiful, cherished daughter of Scottish nobility, Melusine of Ulle had all the privileges of rank. They both know they have duty and that they can’t say no.
Three stars, only recommended for die-hard Gellis fans.

This one is about Bruno and Maud. Ratings and Reviews 0 3 star ratings 0 reviews. Besides that, the author just went on and on about battles and kings. Refresh and try again. No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! Egllis, they had Tiffany in the 12thc!! The writing style was just so profoundly different than most historicals that I’ve ever read, that I’m wondering if it’s an author thing or a medieval romance thing, because I don’t think I’ve ever read too many of those.
The biggest issue I had was with the plot and writing. Gellis is really good at delivering interesting, true to their period, characters and in immersing her story in history. I wanted to know what was going to happen, not what had already happened! Melusine is the only surviving daughter of nobility and has gelliw allowed more freedom than most robfrta of this time period.
As for the romance, so much of Bruno’s service to Stephen keeps him on the battlefield and not sparring and making up with Melusine, so I suspect romance readers will be bored to tears. If it had not been a book I had promised to review, I would never have finished it.
This book puts the “historical” in historical fiction. Overall, I ggellis like. Her father turned traitor to the King of England by siding himself and his sons with the King of Scotland thus leaving his lands and beloved daughter unprotected and in dire danger. How to write a great review.

For who knows what reason I never got itStephen decides to knight Bruno and marry him to Melusine, who is half mad with grief over the loss of her family and home, and when she recognizes her new husband as the man who took her from Ulle she attempts to kill him while he’s sleeping. The King and Queen Maud decide a marriage of convenience for them and one could say that this more romantic side of the story continues till they come to terms with each other. Furthermore, each scene started off from the past.
I didn’t pick this book to read about historical battles.
