Présentation de l'éditeur

The remarkable Lindsey magic is stronger than ever! The spectacular #1 bestselling author returns with a glorious tale of passion and duty set in medieval England. A betrothal has been announced that will join together Britain's two most powerful families , a union of wealth and influence to rival even the King's himself. But not only does the dangerously ambitious King John oppose this wedding, but Milisant and Wulfric : the intended bride and groom , are equally unhappy with the arrangement. Two passionate, headstrong people, they resent being thrown together for purely dynastic reasons. But fate's many twists and turns , and the unpredictable predilections of two unconquerable hearts will turn an unwanted marriage of convenience into a true and eternal joining of desire and love.

This the sequel to Defy Not the Heart.
Set in 1200s in England under the rule of King John. Milisant Crispin is a nineteen year old tomboy betrothed, since she was born, to Wulfric de Thorpe who is now 25 years old. The match was made between their respective fathers who are great friends. Milisant and Wulfric have only met once previously when she was 6 years old and he 13 years old, an unpleasant meeting that neither of them could forget. Given one month to get to know each other before the wedding, sparks fly when Milisant and Wulf are thrown together but there is a hidden danger lying in wait for Milisant.
A sweet story. However, I didn't find the relationship between Wulfric and Milisant very convincing. Milisant is so unpleasant to Wulfric I can't see what made him fall in love with her. Still it's a good read. I prefer the prequel though, Defy Not the Heart, Ranulf and Reina's story. (JL, how about a sequel for their children? Roland's story perhaps?)

So-So Romance Set in the Medieval Times 3 août 2004
Par Dakota - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I had to reread "Joining" twice before I rated it, simply because I couldn't make up my mind how I felt about it. I finally decided it was "alright" approaching "lackluster," especially in comparison to its marvelous prequel, "Defy Not the Heart."

A medieval romance, "Joining" is the story of tomboy Milisant and the knight Wulfric, betrothed since babies, who hate each other but are to be married in a month. With the ability to befriend any and all animals, Milisant desperately wishes she were a boy, and dresses that way. She loves to hunt with her bow and run around with dirt on her face. Wulfric is dark and brooding, and has a penchant for ordering Milisant around. At first, he prefers Milisant's most ladylike twin sister, Jhone, yet somehow he ends up falling for his uncouth bride-to-be.

I loved the relationship between Jhone and Milisant. In fact, I think this novel would have withered and died without it. There's real devotion between the two sisters; plus, wise Jhone gives excellent, witty advice to her wayward sister. Actually, I think I liked Jhone better than Milisant, which is sad. You're supposed to like the heroine. But Milisant as a heroine is an eyeball-rolling experience. She reminds me of a drama queen twelve-year old.

It's hard to feel much for Wulfric. He doesn't get too much story time, as most of "Joining" revolves around conversations between Milisant and Jhone.

The hatred between the two lovers-to-be is based on an experience that occurred when they were kids. It's an argument gone bad, with a dead bird and broken ankle thrown in. Most of it is just dopey. More hard feelings revolve around a distracting subplot with famous King John and a visit to the home of Reina & Ranulf of "Defy Not the Heart." I wish I could say Reina & Ranulf were fun to see again; unfortunately, they were so little used it's silly to call "Joining" a sequel.

All in all, "Joining" is fine is you've never read a Johanna Lindsey novel. It has its moments, with witty dialogue here and there and some interesting situations, but it's not great. It's way too women's lib (in the medieval times?!?) for me to stomach and lacks real passion (they don't even get it on until page 320).

I personally would prefer to read "Defy Not the Heart."

tripey trite 14 janvier 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

I thought this book was absolutely hopeless. Despite the description that Mill was supposed to be strong minded, I thought she never demonstrated this and especially at the end where she allowed herself to be bullied into agreeing with that bossy and self-important hero. Not very dignified, let alone romantic at all! J.L. has managed to maintain the dignity of her heroines in other books having a similar premise, such as "You Belong To Me" but "Joining" didn't allow this. Mill and Wulf only seemed to be obsessed with arguing about each other's habits in a flimsy attempt to substitute for plot. Lastly the word "joining" was used about every 5 pages for some reason. I found such repetition unnecessary and very annoying. If you must read this, get it from the library like I did. Not worth the $.

Not Johanna Lindsey's best work 9 mars 2000
Par "kathids" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Although I'm a big fan of JL, I would suggest waiting until the paperback is out. Don't spend the money on the hardcover version, it's not worth it. It's a pleasing story, but without any bite, and very little romance. On a scale of 1-10, Joining is a 5. Did Johanna actually write this?

Disappointing 29 juillet 2004
Par Stephanie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I have been a fan of Johanna Lindsey's work for over a decade, and I can honestly say: If stranded on a desert island, the only two books available were "Joining" and "The Art of Watching Grass Grow", I would be using the pages of "Joining" to kindle a fire while tending to the lawn I've grown on the sand!

This was Ms. Lindsey's poorest effort to say the least. The characters were uninteresting, the plotline thin, the love unconvincing...and I found myself struggling to complete the story in hopes of finding some redeeming feature. Alas, there was none to be found.

I would still recommend Lindsey's work, just skip this title.

Poor effort... 3 juin 2000
Par Tracy Talley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I am a HUGE Johanna Lindsey fan, I have every book she ever wrote and I love them, but this is a waste of effort to have wrote or read! This book is the follow-up to "Defy Not the Heart". They don't even compare. The heroine in this book Milisent was weak and did unbelievable things in this time period(1214) which would never have been tolerated! The plot was dumb and the hero and heroine lacked any spark of romance or fire Johanna Lindsey usually has for her characters. The plot calls for this "danger" to threaten them! Please! If you read it you'll know what I mean. The "danger" plot never took off and was gone before you knew it. Left me wondering why it was there in the first place! And the reason she doesn't want to marry the Earl(Wulfric) is a stupid one. Lindsey could've come up with something better in my opinion. I was sorely dissapointed in this book. Her writing lately is much to be desired. I don't want to sound so critical, but come on! If you are new to this author, I would NOT recommend this book to you as a first, try instead her Malory books, starting with "Love Only Once", "Tender Rebel","Gentle Rogue", "Magic of You", "Say You Love Me"& "The Present"(in this order). This way you can judge for yourself how well she writes normally. "The Joining" had some humorous parts in the beginning, but seems to lose steam midway through and then took a nosedive. I hope this helps anyone out there.... =)
