Thank you for signing up, fellow book lover! First of all Garwood’s writing is at times almost painful. An arrogant, macho ass who is domineering and just impossible.

Gentle Warrior 3 14 Apr 08, Just looking at what’s available on Google Books Tell us what you like, so we can send you books you’ll love. While Geoffrey isn’t exactly abusive like some heroes of that era in romance, he can get very intense and a couple of times he shook Elizabeth or pulled her hair in a way that was more than just a playful tug when he was angry.
So, he’s not all bad but I couldn’t fall in love with him or really connect with him. I did for the most part, and there was one part that really tugged at my heart, so despite the predictability of the story and the characters and the sex, I still liked it.
I mean, the villain conspired to kill the heroine’s parents. I believe even worse than that is her contradictory garwlod her motives are not entirely clear and her irrational outbursts serve no other purpose to annoy Geoffrey and the reader.

October Group Read: I was laughing for most of the book ,narrator’s voice for Geoffrey was the funniest thing!
I didnt really like this book, I dont even know why. Many, many times I had to go back and re-read to see what was thought and what was actual dialogue. Elizabeth, who warriod wolfhounds and a hawk at her beck and call because that’s the epitome of farwood for women in medieval times has just seen her entire family slaughter Now I love me some historical romance, particularly medieval romances I can probably thank some old bodice-rippin’ Johanna Lindsey books for thatbut this one just didn’t do it for me.
You can tell garwoo hasn’t quite hit her stride. Since then, she has branched into other genres including contemporary garwoor suspense. Geoffrey our gentle warrior Now I can’t read her one after another but spaced apart they are certainly an easy, enjoyable, quick read.
I didn’t feel that the hero and heroine had as much depth as they could have, but overall, they were both pretty likable. Now, I know that all of Julie Garwood’s highlander books are pretty much the same just with slightly different events and settings, but I absolutely love them!
