With her “straightforward style and brisk pacing” (Kirkus Reviews), Julie Garwood’s classic romantic series is perfect for fans of Jude Deveraux and Julia Quinn.
I’ve had The Lion’s Lady no my shelf for years and never read it. It’s said to say, especially since , I loved The Lion’s Lady! I don’t recall the last time I laughed so much.
What I liked: I thoroughly enjoyed how Ms. Garwood pulled The Lion’s Lady together. Bringing two people from completely different cultures together in this sweeping romance is inspiring. I loved how Christina and Lyon often misunderstood each other, we all do that so frequently & we’re from the same culture! While there is plenty of drama and a bit of suspense, The Lion’s Lady is a relaxing, fun read.
What I didn’t like: It was a bit steamy for my tastes. There are only a few detailed encounters and were easily skimmed.
Ill absolutely be keeping The Lion’s Lady on my shelf for the future, I know I’ll want to read it again!
