Présentation de l'éditeur

THE WARRIOR MAIDS OF RIVENLOCH:

Damsels in shining armor...riding to the rescue! Deirdre, Helena, and Miriel, three kick-arse Scots wenches known as The Warrior Maids of Rivenloch, aren’t about to become any man’s chattel, until they meet heroes who are strong enough to tame their wild ways and worthy enough to win their wayward hearts.


LADY DANGER:

Born to the blade and raised to fear no one, Deirdre of Rivenloch never shies away from a fight and never turns her back on a threat to her land or her family. But she’s never met a man like Sir Pagan Cameliard, the bold and powerful knight who comes at the king’s command to make a marriage alliance with Rivenloch. To save her younger sister, Deirdre tricks Pagan into marrying her instead, and now she faces a new kind of enemy who crosses swords with her by day and lays siege to her heart by night.

Glynnis Campbell, writing as Sarah McKerrigan

Book Description

DESCRIPTION: BORN TO THE BLADE... Raised to fear no man, Deirdre of Rivenloch never backs down from a clash of steel or a threat to her lands and family. But when she tricks Sir Pagan Cameliard into marrying her in order to save her younger sister, she's faced with a new kind of enemy: a husband who would turn her resistance into a fire that heats her blood...and who would use all his cunning to make her cry his name in ultimate abandon. For Pagan has made his own wedding vow. He will best his sword-wielding bride in the field by day and make her surrender in his arms by night. Her heart will be his...even if it means being conquered by hers.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good read 28 février 2014
Par Anabella
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Interesting story about a strong female character falling in love with her perceived enemy. Captivating, but not entirely - but I could not pinpoint what is missing... maybe a few more twists and turns to the story?... The book was free, I liked both the cover and the synopsis, but at the end felt a bit let down. Worth your time if you don't have another book more highly recommended next to you.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 3 and 1/2 stars - Lighter Scottish Historical with Three Warrior Sisters 3 mai 2013
Par Regan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I suppose I should say at the outset that I prefer the deep historicals, the ones that reflect the history of Scotland with characters that could have lived then experiencing believable hardships and challenges on the way to love. I knew from the first few pages this was not one of those. So, I readjusted my thinking and accepted this is lighter fare.

Set in the Borderlands between Scotland and England in 1136 (the year Stephen of England and David I of Scotland entered into a peace treaty), this is the first of a trilogy of stories about three daughters of a senile Scottish border lord. Known as the Warrior Maids of Rivenlock, the sisters do their best to maintain their failing keep without their father's leadership until they learn that King David has given both the keep and one of them to a Norman knight, Sir Pagan Cameliard. The youngest sister unselfishly offers to marry the knight, but Deidre believes she is the only one who can handle the man, so to protect her younger sisters from an unwanted marriage, Deidre (in disguise) takes her youngest sister's place at the wedding. However, Pagan, who was instantly attracted to Deidre and not her sisters, is no fool and is well aware of which sister he is marrying. Thereafter ensues a battle for control, as Deidre wants to call the shots and so does Pagan.

It's a clever, well-written tale with witty dialog that captures the medieval feel, albeit somewhat fancifully. For example, clans didn't just rely on the chieftain to take care of the castle, but had many senior men who had various roles and could be left in charge when the need arose. However, in this story, it's the three young women who make all the decisions. In addition, there were virtually no differences in the speech of the Normans (not a word of French), the Scots, and the Chinese servant, which seemed a bit odd.

If you like lighter fare and don't mind some unrealistic plot developments, and a story set all in one place, you will find this entertaining.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprised and impressed. 21 octobre 2006
Par Emlyn54 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Seems like I've been reading a lot of really poorly written period romances lately while I wait for the next offerings from Mary Balogh, Lisa Kleypas and Stephanie Laurens. I'd about given up trying anyone new after so many disappointments. But after reading the blurb about this book, I couldn't resist and boy, am I glad I didn't. Great original characters, great stories, great writing, great everything! I quickly bought the follow-up book, "Captive Heart" (Colin and Helena's story), and liked it just as well, if not better than Pagan and Deirdre's story. The only downside...having to wait until next spring for the final book in the trilogy, the last sister, Miriel's story.

These sisters are totally unique to so-called romance fiction, at least in my experience (which is fairly considerable), especially Helena. They are warriors all, and as written by the remarkably talented Ms. McKerrigan they are totally believable. God, it's so nice to have truly strong and capable female protagonists for a change. Add to that the fact that the author managed to create men who come to value their ladies strength, bravery and sense of honor as they would any other true warrior, and to my mind you have the perfect love stories. Ms. McKerrigan also manages to write very sensual love scenes without going over the top. They flow so naturally and carry a true visceral punch. She's done absolutely everything right, except making us wait so long for Miriel's story.

I'm not going to go into storylines. Read the books. I promise you will not regret purchasing both "Lady Danger" and "Captive Heart". If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would. And I'm not one to gush over books. Most of those I read (30+ per month) I don't bother to review because I can't find anything nice to say about any of them, especially when others seem to like them so much. I'm from the old school...if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

Thank God Ms. McKerrigan has allowed me to say so many nice things. Happy reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great, Independent Heroine who Stands Up For Herself 13 avril 2006
Par Lisa Shea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This is exactly the type of story I adore. The woman is not a shrinking violet that screams and waits for a guy to rescue her. She doesn't pine away in a tower, watching the world drift by because she's too feeble to actually take control of her own life. Instead, she picks up her sword, grabs the dagger out of her boot, and takes a stand for what she believes in.

The heroine is Deidre, eldest daughter of a Scottish Lord. She and her two sisters have been managing the castle as their father slips into senility. Along comes Pagan Cameliard who has been given control of the castle and a sister's hand in marriage. The girls don't like this, but Deidre accepts it as her fate. She may have to marry him for political reasons, but she doesn't have to like him - or yield to him in bed.

What follows is the kind of story I love. She's a bit arrogant, having had control for so long, and has trouble realizing Pagan is actually a match for her. He's a bit arrogant too, thinking women are brainless twits. Both of them get a rude awakening that at first bothers them, then intrigues them. She realizes that Pagan is actually an amazingly good fighter and worthy of her respect. He realizes that Deidre does have a sharp mind and a well toned body, and that he is drawn to both. I love the combination of verbal jousting and physical swordplay. It's like watching scenes from Conan or Alias come to life.

I really do enthusiastically give this book five stars, as it is so much in the style that I appreciate, but I will call out a few minor items that nagged at me. Pagan is a man of honor and shows it in several ways - but on the other hand he quickly attempts something DIShonorable that really, really bugged me. It really had an impact on how I felt about his character. Also, it irks me that often in romance stories the guy has slept around with every girl he's met, is comfortable and well skilled in love as being "normal". The woman, on the other hand, is a frigid ice queen that has never even been kissed. It's the whole "new car smell" stereotype that the Victorians concocted and still affects teenagers in modern times! It really concerns me that we perpetuate these ideas that women have to be pure and chaste while guys are only "real guys" if they've slept with anything that moves. Why would sex be natural for a male, but unnatural for a female?

In any case, these are issues I have to face in most romance novels so I was able to get past them here. In general the book was brilliant, was a quick and fun read, and I'd love to see more stories come out in this style.

UPDATE:

Another reviewer suggested The Wolf and the Dove was far better than Lady Danger. WolfDove was written in 1974 so I tried to give it some leeway - but I was *really* upset by much of it. The woman is raped by one guy. Then she is CONTINUALLY raped by a second guy who is the "hero"!! Her solution is to nag this guy literally every day until he marries her. His reward - she now actively participates in sex instead of just laying there!

Her only "drawing feature" for these guys - mentioned repeatedly - is how beautiful she is. Other women are actively scorned for being "not curvy enough" or infertile. I'm not even mentioning the many technical writing issues - just the characters themselves were very upsetting to me as a modern reader. I really hope women don't think that a guy who continually rapes them in any era is someone they should nag into marriage. She should have run. Immediately.

Lady Danger is FAR far better than that book. Deidre stands up for herself, she protects her people, she is intelligent and respected for her skills. Pagan actively refuses to take her unwillingly because, as a knight, he swore an oath! Knights did actually take those oaths seriously most of the time. If one didn't, he wouldn't be the guy I'd want as a hero in a romance novel.

Deidre is exactly what I would want to be in a woman in that time period - and Pagan is exactly the man I would want to stand by my side.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I Really Wanted To Like It! 23 février 2013
Par Sheila - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The premise of a strong warrior type woman who can take care of herself and stand up for herself was wonderful. It started off good and there were humorous parts to the story as well.

About midway through the story she gets to be just plain annoying. Even having sex is viewed as some kind of a control issue. You're a grown woman for crying out loud - really! You have to know when to stop the silliness and move on. Speaking of sex, there just wasn't any heat/sizzle to the story. (Maybe I was so annoyed by her, I missed it but I don't think so).

This should've been such a good read. Sorry to say I was disappointed.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 "Hero" anything but 11 avril 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The main guy character started out really unlikeable, and was really ready to break his new bride and get her to obey him at any costs. Then of course he falls in love with her, so that all changed. Kind of. He still spends a good part of the book trying to completely change her and take away the things that she cares about most, because it's not ladylike. I mean, he breaks her beloved sword in front of her and all her men, hurting and humiliating her. Though of course he doesn't see his behavior as a problem at all. But what if he hadn't decided he loved her or she wasn't attractive? Then he would have gone ahead and been even more horrible and abusive and it would have been ok?

The rest is a pretty standard romance, but I always think the way someone treats their enemies or people they DON'T like says a lot about their character, and it says nothing good about the hero. The main female character is fine. One of her sisters is a little hard to deal with (drunken idiot) but I don't have a major problem with the heroine. I kind of wish she had not fallen in love with the hero, but obviously that's just the genre. Eh. Unless you think men have to be dominant and women have to learn to be submissive, this book will likely infuriate you.
