    Lady Talon has all the guts I wished I could muster up! I really enjoyed the sweet story of Gareth helping her and becoming her friend when they were young. I think I find myself caught in these stories where the girl feels obligated to be a 'perfect, polite, and proper' woman because I think all women feel that way at some point in their lives, but dang it all sometimes we just need break out of it! And Talon did just that. :-)Gareth was every ones dream man (at least to me). Big, strong, manly, virile, feared by others, but with is woman thoughtful, kind, and treats her like the most beautiful woman to grace the earth. If someone could please make this type of man real?...SIGN ME UP! (Don't tell my hubby I said that...lolI gave this book fours stars because it did slow a bit in some parts and then fly in others. It was an easy fun read. I recommend it to all my friends. :-)

    Tanon Risande is a political football. William I may love her like a daughter, but he'll also marry her off to any jerk who has something he wants. When she was a girl, he betrothed her to Cedric, the creepy elder nephew of Rhys ap Tewdwr (geek alert: Rhys was in fact a contemporary of William's, though based on the ages of his children, I think he was a bit younger than portrayed here. He is also an ancestor of the Tudor kings and queens, and his daughter, Nest, bore the bastard of a king, was raped and abducted by her cousin, which nearly launched a civil war, and is the ancestress of, among many others, the Kennedys and Prince William.). When Cedric rebelled against his uncle and fell into disfavor, and his younger brother Gareth was killed, William betrothed Tanon to her childhood nemesis.Only Gareth isn't quite as dead as all that. He shows up and challenges Tanon's fiancé to combat--winner gets the girl. Which is how Tanon ends up married to Gareth, and William gets the promise of peace between him and Rhys (geek alert: William did in fact strike an agreement with Rhys and kept his aggressive marcher lords from invading the south of Wales until his death.)Intrigues abound, and, for the sake of peace, Gareth has to make a difficult choice, one that leaves Tanon in grave danger. When she realizes what he did, she's all(view spoiler)[And frankly, since the situation would have been a hell of a lot less dangerous for her if he had at least TOLD her what he planned, I'd have liked for her to stay that way longer than she did. (hide spoiler)]When it's all said and done, the romance is excellent, the intrigues exciting, and me, I'm always When I get to read a historical romance that has some actual history (even if I might quibble with a detail or two). Five stars..["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    kind of bland, I wouldnt recommend it but it's not poorly written. Gareth and Tanon just have little chemistry. If there was any, well, it isn't the kind that I pick up on. In truth I wanted to give 2 stars, but I do like Quinn's medieval stories. honorary one star so all in all, 3 weak stars.

Tanon spent the summer with Gareth when they were kids, and they both had lots of fun. Later on Gareth's older brother was killed in war, which means the betroth is off...but 12 years later, Gareth comes back and challenges Roger, so that he can claim Tanon as his wife.Gareth, of course, wins. and then the next day or so he marrys Tanon.the next day after the wedding, Tanon was taken by Gareth and his men for her to go to Gareth's villiage.On the way war occurs, because apparently noone likes a Norman to marry Gareth.Later on there are complicated matters dealing with Gareth's brother who wants to take over the throne, but in the end everything is revealed and everyone is happy.#48And of course you can assume that everyone lives HEA.

    At the rate this one became spectacular it slowed at just the same speed. The first half was a 5 Star...the second half was a 1 Star...so I met the rating in the middle and settled on 3. It was almost like the author just lost or gave up on her creativity halfway through and I hate that because this could have been one hell of a book. I would recommend Chapters 1 - 11 to all my goodreads friends but use your imaginations to finish it.

    Loved it! Author finished this series strong:) Really enjoyed Prince Gareth!! Not a very heady series...but fun easy reads. Finished all three on a long lazy weekend. Will miss the Risande's. Also wish Madoc had his own book....☺️

    PQ really know how to create strong but humble hero. Another enjoyable story, really liked the series. Really wish there was another!!! This book hooked me in the preview from book 2. Tanon -love the name - was very convivial and had a good balance of innocence and ardor. Gareth was like all of Quinn's heros, just about perfect. I loved the beginning when Tanon was just a little girl and how she came to know Gareth. I also love when Gareth was mistakenly lead to Tanon's room the first night he sees her again since childhood. Full bodied plot that progressed with definite direction. The story moved well, and I would even venture to say almost too fast. Certain little things could have been a bit more embellished, like the confrontation between Tanon and Madoc. She did some damage but it was never mentioned again, or his admission to his part in the charade. That relationship needed to be put right in my mind. And the final scene where Gareth and Tanon hit the "make or break" apex. I would have like to seen that more dramatic and emotional. Lastly, they never said "I love you" to one another. Granted sometime an author can make you roll your eyes with an abundance of the phrase but not once in a romance novel? None the less, the story worked and I was submersed, racing through, watch the end draw near with conflicted thoughts of not wanting it to end and wanting to see what was happening next. Really, really wish there was another!!

    I love this story between Gareth and Tanon. It's simple and didn't give me any heartache while reading it. As I read for leisure, this is perfect. I didn't have to worry my heart out with the overwhelming sadness in some books. The guy knows what he wanted and he took it. Simple, isn't it? Having dealing with guys with uncertainties all the time, heroes who are very sure of themselves are my weakness. And I love every hero's second in commands, though I wish Madoc is cheekier than he is. I recommend this book for those who want wonderful romance, but need to keep it simple. One thing bugging my mind is that, how old is William's son? He did send Roger to train under his son but he wasn't married when Brynna and Brand get together, was he? I tried to calculate but it's getting tangled in my head. Oh well, great read btw!

    The characters and plot were good, but there wasn't much steam. LOTS of build up towards steam, and then ONE so-so steamy scene (and a few implied sex scenes). If you're looking for a romance with a decent plot and not much else, then this would be a good book for you.On a side note that has nothing much to do with this story, I have a question. What is up with the word 'laved'? As in, "He 'laved' her mouth with his tongue.". Ewwww. The hero in this book did a little 'laving to the heroine, so I guess that's what made me think about it. To me, the word brings to mind those first awkward fumbling kisses in middle school, when boys had no finesse at all. You know, just randomly jabbing their tongues in the general vicinity of your mouth. Urk!

    Gareth... He rings perfect. Always a gentleman. And his winks...everytime I read about him giving Tanon a playful flirtatious wink, my stomach knotted :-PTanon is an awesome woman. The part where she's cleaning her room... She's so adorably innocent.Although... I thought the ending ended rather abrupt. I wanted Tanon more angry at Gareth for the choice he decided upon taking regarding her safety...just so it gives the "make-up" more exciting to look forward to. I also wanted Tanon to confront Madoc, about the incident between them two. Fyi, I don't do spoilers so my reviews are a bit vague. I just like to add my two cents without harm.

    When I first started the book I thought that it might not be my kind of thing to read. But the more I read it the more started to enjoy it.The two main characters Gareth & Tanon were actually made for each other the got on each other's neeves but they loved one another. When he took her to his homeland she wasn't too sure about it. She was used to the finer things but once she was there she got used to it.The plot was a good one. But things didn't work out the way a villian of the story thought that it would. The villian thought that he had it all worked out. But Gareth was a step ahead of that plot.But I love how the book was written and the way that it ended

    This was SUCH a sweet book filled with romance, a little bit of mystery, intrigue and some humor. I fell in love with the characters and didn't want the story to end! The author also included a couple of twists that kept me guessing along the way and made it that much more intriguing. This was my first Paula Quinn read, even though it was the third in a series. I didn't ind that hard to follow however, and I look forward to reading the rest in the series (:

    My first by Paula Quinn. Just one big build up and then anti-climatic regarding the steam factor. I hate books that tease and then let you down...that's a big pet peeve of mine. I blame it totally on the author. All talk and no action. Anyways, the plot did entertain me enough to finish the book. I doubt I'll be rushing out to purchase another by this author, but I will probably read her again....someday.

    I requested this book because I had read the first 2 in there series. I didn't realize I would be so disappointed. I mean it was enjoyable but not to the extent of the others. The description of the book makes Tanon and Gareth sound much like the men and woman of the other two books (Lord of Desire being about her mother and father) but you quickly find out that Tanon has never come close to having a relationship before so she doesn't have anything to compare this love unlike any she has known except to what she sees between her mother and father.Both Tanon and Gareth seem extremely young in this story despite they are probably close to other characters ages when they met and fell in love. Gareth doesn't seem like the man of every woman's fantasy and Tanon doesn't seem as headstrong as the description wants you to believe. In fact, you come to learn that Tanon is used to doing as she is told and does so for the most part.If you want to know about one of Brand and Brynna's children then you should read this book but if you can stop and Brand and Dante's stories... I would.

    Arranged marriage to keep the peace.... a romantic theme! I sinceriously believe that!!! I enjoyed the story, but felt the beginning was too much information, but I guess we would be complaining if there wasn't enough of a story, and they just jumped in to getting married. I liked the heroine. The Hero was swoon-worthy. But something just didn't grab my heart. I read it but it didn't really evoke any strong emotions.

    I really did like the book. I am torn between three and four stars, so I went with the three stars. I felt like it was hard to see the characters as adults, and envision how an adult relationship. Although there was one steamy scene, it almost felt like there wasn't enough sexy scenes or tension. Good book though, well written and worth the read if you have read the others. Curious if we will hear more of this family or Madoc?

    Even the main character herself admits its somewhat hasty to go from hating the "barbarian" she is promised to and, in less than two weeks, begging to stay in his bed when the shifting political scene offers her an out.

    I enjoyed this story. I liked the way Quinn weaves the history of the times with the story of the romance between the lovers. I liked learning about the Irish Princes and their pact with William the Conqueror. Nicely done.

    After reading the previous two in the series I had high hopes for the final one. But there's something missing in this one. A spark, or pull that just wasn't there. Having said that, this is still a 3.5 book for me. I enjoyed it, but I was also a little disappointed at the same time.
