I won't spoil the plot in a review, because I believe that when you're truly interested in reading a book, reading reviews might affect your enjoyment of the book. But I devoured this book!

Format:Poche
Ce que j'aime chez Jude Deveraux, c'est qu'au delà de la romance, il y a un vrai travail d'historien. Elle nous décrit pour notre plus grand plaisir les us et coutumes de la vie au Moyen Age en Angleterre: ses banquets, ses tournois, ses vêtements.. L'histoire, malgré quelques longueurs, est bien construite. Les personnages, bien trop obtus et fiers à mon goût, aiment les complications!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 One of Deveraux's earliest efforts -- a great read! 2 mai 2006
Par CoffeeGurl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This novel is set in Medieval times, during Edward I's reign, when the English were at war with the Welsh (no specific year is pinpointed, but I assume it is some time during the mid 1200s). Ranulf de Warbrooke, Earl of Malvoisin, is known to everyone as the Black Lion because of his big, dark and rugged good looks and for his fierceness as an unbeatable warrior. He is also known for his dark moods, for he's never smiled after his awful marriage with his first wife. However, his life has new meaning after he meets Lyonene, daughter of a lowly baron and the only person who has made him smile in years. They fall in love after two days and he asks for her hand in marriage. Things aren't easy at first though. Ranulf hasn't gotten over his first wife's treachery and thinks that Lyonene will betray him as well, especially after a childhood friend of hers lies and says that he and Lyonene are lovers. Lyonene goes out of her way to prove her faithfulness and love to Ranulf, but soon other things get in the way and Lyonene ends up a prisoner in Ireland. Will the Black Lion be able to rescue his damsel in distress? There are various twists throughout the novel.

This is Jude Deveraux's second novel and it shows. The writing isn't quite as good as her later work, but she already showcased great skill and ability as a storyteller. I love this short Medieval story. The plot sort of reminds me of The Taming (though TT was published a decade after The Black Lyon) -- about a fierce and independent woman who tames the brutish warrior. The second part of the novel is also somewhat similar to the one in The Taming, but this one has its own entertaining story to tell. Jude does have a similar taming-the-brute theme in many of her novels. And I love the time setting. Even in the beginning of her career JD was able to bring the time period to life. I love her ability to describe Medieval times so well. The scenes during the mock tourneys were wonderful. The protagonists are great if kind of frustrating. Ranulf upset me a great deal in the beginning. His lack of faith in Lyonene was quite painful to read at times. However, he redeems himself in many ways. Then Lyonene ticked me off as well. I couldn't believe her stupidity during the second part of the novel. Amicia is disgusting and I wish I could have beaten the manipulative wench down. I am disappointed with the way everything is resolved in the last few chapters. I wanted to see more battle scenes and see the villains go down. Everything is so rushed. Ugh. Other than that, I loved The Black Lyon. I loved reading about the beginning of the Montgomery dynasty. It is so great to read a family saga that goes back all the way to its sire. Despite some rookie flaws by Deveraux, The Black Lyon is an awesome read and I cannot recommend this novel enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is the first of the Montgomery clan where it all started! 9 juillet 2005
Par D. Lane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This book is the first of the Montgomery clan where it all started! If you love the Montgomery's like I do then this is a must have for you,such a classic!!! I love how Jude Deveraux tells the story of the pain of Ranulf De Warbrooke who was deeply hurt by his first wife and how true love was able to heal that pain. Ranulf is handsome, sexy, intelligent, but embittered by life. I am always a sucker for stories with "heartless" heroes who find their souls through the love of a good woman. The dialogue that ensues between Ranulf and Lyonene is just fast paced and very enjoyable. The plot and characters seemed fresh, the pace was quick, and it was a totally engrossing read. It was written with an amazing level of intensity and feeling that my heart was pumping furiously with palatable passion. This book has lots of drama and the characters are colorful and unforgettable. The reader will feel the despair, the heartbreak, passion and the joy of Ranulf De Warbrooke and Lyonene in this very excellent character driven romance.

This book is a MOST if you have read Velvet Song. A truly remarkable book that is a must read for any fan of Jude Deveraux or any fan historical romance.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very heart warming tale of learning to trust & love again. 10 avril 2009
Par R. Evangelio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In The Black Lyon we meet Ranulf de Warbrooke, the Earl of Malvoisin, who is the champion knight of King Edward I. He is dark, powerful, wealthy and, of course, incredibly handsome. At the tender age of 15, he was married to a woman, Isabelle, who only wanted him for the wealth and power that his earldom brought. Although she came to the marriage carrying the child of another man, Ranulf was so in awe of her that he worked day and night training to be a knight in order to please her.

However, Isabelle had no use for Ranulf, saying that his black looks revolted her; she continued her adulterous behavior after she gave birth to the other man's child, a daughter, whom Ranulf grew to love. When Isabelle lay dying from a fever, she professed her hatred for Ranulf and told him her greedy reasons for marrying him. Out of hatred and spite, Isabelle was determined to take away any shred of love that Ranulf had for anything. The cruel woman made sure that her little girl died of the fever along with her. Her hateful words and actions on her deathbed closed Ranulf's heart and made him even more determined to be the most powerful earl and strongest knight in England and he eventually does becoming The Black Lyon.

Sixteen years after the death of Isabelle, Ranulf meets Lyonene, the beautiful, seventeen year old daughter of a baron who named her for a lioness because of her mass of tawny hair and emerald eyes. They decide to marry after a whirlwind three-day courtship, but do not actually marry for another three weeks. It is during this waiting period, during which they are separated, that Ranulf has more than enough time to dwell on his decision to marry again. He recalls all too well the emotional pain inflicted on him by his first wife. Because of his reflections on Isabelle, he falls into a black mood, which he displays on his wedding day and wedding night. Lyonene is left to wonder where the Ranulf that she grew to love over those glorious three days went.

Ranulf accuses Lyonene of conspiring with a boy from her childhood and threatens to cast her aside. Lyonene is determined to save her marriage/ She disguises herself as a serf so that she can hide in Ranulf's entourage as he travels to Wales, where the king has sent him to thwart plans of a Welsh uprising. Lyonene discovers the truth of her husband's past and understands the hurt and mistrust he has suffered. She knows that mere words will not convince him of her sincerity. During a Welsh attack, Lyonene proves her love by her deeds, which nearly kill her. Her response to Ranulf when he asks why she acted as she had is a two-hanky moment. Ranulf finally appears to have come to his senses about his relationship with Lyonene and he vows to start their lives anew.

Of course, Jude Deveraux fans know that this is not the only trial by fire these two will face. Sure enough, amid the announcement of Lyonene's pregnancy, we learn that a jealous plot is being concocted to tear the two lovers apart. How their love triumphs will appeal to all lovers of romance.

The Black Lyon is a joy from start to finish. I especially loved the secondary characters - Berengaria, the friend Lyonene made at court; her younger brother Brett who is sent to foster at Ranulf's castle; Dacre, Ranulf's friend and comrade and especially Ranulf's seven knights, his "Black Guard." I loved how Jude Deveraux gave each of them his own unique personality. I love this book so much I am now on my second copy because I read the first one so much the spine split.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Black Lyon and his Lioness 14 février 2002
Par Tami Brandt - Publié sur Amazon.com

Jude Deveraux's second book! I've read this book so much I've worn out the spine, it's taped together now! ...
It's a book and story about a Lyon and his Lyoness. A tumultuous love affair that has it's ups and downs, just like any marrriage would. Lord Ranulf being much older has demons to deal with (just like all heroes) and in fighting those demons, he thinks that his new wife, the beautiful Lyonene is like his first wife from years and lifetimes ago, so in thinking that he accuses her of cheating (like his first wife cheated).
Even after a huge fight between them, she followed him into the thick of battle to make amends with him, as well as a kidnapping that takes them both across the Irish Sea!
Ms. Deveraux did VERY well on her second adventure!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Four Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies 11 février 2008
Par Natalie S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Lyonene's life is forever changed when Ranulf de Warbrooke, the Earl of Malvoisin, asks for her hand in marriage. What began as a political alliance between two families becomes so much more. With each passing day, Lyonene falls deeper in love with her husband.

When reality and war invade their idyllic world, Ranulf has no choice but to fight for his lands. Unforeseen by Ranulf, leaving behind an alone and bewildered Lyonene will have terrible repercussions. With sinister outsiders doing their best to tear the lovers apart, even resorting to abduction, can the Black Lyon save his lioness, or will he believe the falsehoods told to him by others?

I had forgotten how much I loved THE BLACK LYON. I remember reading this book over and over and simply swooning at the thought of having a brave knight for my very own. Whether I am 18 or 42, this novel never becomes dated. It's timeless quality and ability to keep me enthralled has never wavered. From the first time I read it until the last, THE BLACK LYON remains my favorite novel by the talented Jude Deveraux.

A new generation of Deveraux fans are sure to enjoy THE BLACK LYON. It was released once again by Avon in January, 2007.
