My Lord's Desire King John #1She had sworn never to marry never to allow any man to claim her or her lands Nevertheless Lady Adelaide fended off fortune hunters aplenty when she arrived at the king's court Yet when dark whispers in castle corridors thre This book was primed to be a perfect one for me It's set in 1204 a period I adore It features a strong independent woman who wants to stay that way and a knight who feels strongly about honor and duty Both are uninterested in politics and gossipThe plot is that Adelaide a ward of King John's court is seeking to keep herself and her sisters unmarried because they don't want to be ruled by a man Armand has just gotten out of captivity and is still trying to free his brother He desperately needs money and marriage is one of the few remaining ways to get itThis is all fairly good but then suddenly a series of completely outrageous things happen Armand says Oh well I guess I'll go along with these ridiculous uick choices Adelaide says Oh you're doing this to me? OK sure And then in the next scene she's raging about how she'll never do what anyone else tells her to do because being independent is the only thing in lifeYou get a shallow blurb about her being the eldest of three sisters and therefore she is the Ultimate Independent Woman Also their father was a drunk Still it doesn't flesh out the character and make her live and breathe The way she acts is completely unrealistic for a woman in her time period I'm not saying we want to read about women who were doormats Medieval women weren't doormats either But it reads as if a woman from today teleported back into medieval wear and even than that that this woman rates incredibly high on the keep men away from me scaleBut this being a romance novel you know that she's going to change her mind by the end and that mind changing is also fairly unrealisticIn general you get the sense that things happen for plot reasons not for character reasonsThere are a few side characters who generally fall into the shiny good or nasty evil categories I like to see depth in the world I'm reading aboutA uick read and the book sets the scene to have the second and third sister go through the same conversion process so I'd be curious to see if the writer improved as she created those subseuent books I would count this a good first start I did read through the book after all and would be willing to give the next book in the series a tryOne final comment there are only a few romantic sex scenes in the book and they are fairly mild So for some people that might be perfect and for others it might be disappointing I think romance novels should have some sort of a steaminess rating so that readers of all types can know in advance what they're getting
