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!

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!

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.

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.

Contains Spoilers... 4 mars 2014
Par RM King - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I'm not sure I liked this book. I'm thinking not really, even though it had a strong beginning.
PROS: Lyonene. Loved her. She's only 17 so I could easily forgive her immaturity at times. Yes, she was way too forgiving to her husband's brutish behaviour, yes she should have kicked his arse to the curb, but she was without her family and trying to do the best in the circumstances she'd been left in.
CONS: Ranulf. I wouldn't call him a hero. He's supposedly twice her age but you certainly couldn't tell that by the way he acted. His jealous temper just seemed to come out of nowhere (considering how different he was at the start of the book). I don't remember him apologising or being sorry for raping her on their wedding night, or backhanding her across the face, or his ill treatment towards her. Lyonene just seemed to pay for his trust issues over and over again. (You think the least he could do was say sorry!)
Sheesh!!

A very heart warming tale of learning to trust & love again. 10 avril 2009
Par R. Evangelio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
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.

Intense Passion and A Whirlwind Romance... 10 octobre 2002
Par Tracy Talley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Very intense in the passion department and filled with romance, 'The Black Lyon' was very good. My only complaint? I wasn't fully convinced that 'the black lyon', Ranulf, was madly in love with the heroine Lyonene. It was clear that she loved him to no end and would die for him, but all I got out of his feelings were intense passion for her and jealousy. I have to also remember that this was written in the time of bodice-rippers(the 80's, 1980 to be exact)when the male was the dominant character and often pushed the heroine around.
The plot was great and the characters very real and colorful, a true Deveraux novel. This is distantly related to the 'Velvet' series.
The fierce Black Lyon (Ranulf)was rich, devestatingly handsome and powerful. He was feared by men and women alike, until he came across a brave woman named Lady Lyonene with flashing emerald eyes and tawny hair much like a lion's mane. The only thing she feared? Not being able to snare him for a husband.
Being one of the King's Earls, Ranulf wanted to make a good marriage, even after his tortured past came creeping up on him and threatened to destroy what happiness he could find with Lyonene.
We are taken through a whirlwind romance and then deep into an intense and stormy marriage. Jealousy, lies and deceit threaten their love and try their trust. Driven across the Irish Sea, Lyonene is in grave danger, only one man is capable and able to save her...the fierce Black Lyon. Only he has the courage to destroy the ruthless plot to keep them apart forever.
Now Ranulf must believe in trust and love to bind them together once again. But is it too late?
