    I will admit, I was at first disappointed that Lynne Marie's new book was not a sequel to The Seahawk's Sanctuary. I LOVE that novel! But when she released a very short sneak peek of Lion's Lair, I was intrigued. It sounded promising and I love the medieval period... Then, mix in a knight who speaks with a Scottish brogue, so much the better! Well, I was NOT disappointed!!! Katriona is a vibrant spitfire and Sir Morgan is the perfect match for her. The fiery passion that builds between them will keep you turning the pages.I also liked the way Lynne Marie introduced the main characters' horses and a dog - they were more like pets. I've been around dogs all of my life, and I immediately fell in love with the wolfhound, Goliath...And, as in her last novel, there's enough history woven into the storyline to get a real taste of the time period. I highly recommend this new novel as a MUST READ for everyone. I can't wait to see what she's going to write about next.

    The hero in this is the kind that I don't like - domineering, condescending, and manipulative. I understand that men were like this in the middle ages and the author wants to be true to the time, but I don't think a man would have tried to teach a woman a lesson by constantly threatening to have his way with her. If he was truly a man with these character traits, he would have just done it. This attempt to infuse sex into every part of the story made the story less realistic. And Katriona was often TSTL.

    This is the story of Sir Morgan, a knight who takes over a castle inhabited by Lady Katriona. As is often the case with romance novels, first they hate each other, then they love each other -- and they all live happily ever after.I had a really difficult time connecting with either one of the protagonists, to be honest. Katriona behaved like a brat throughout (and in ways that were unlikely at best, given the time period) and Morgan was just as bad. I wanted to slap both of them more and more frequently as the book wore on.This was a disappointment to me, because I enjoyed the author's other book (The Seahawk's Sanctuary) a great deal. I realize that this book came first, but I didn't expect to find characters who were so two-dimensional (like villains with no motivation except being bad ... and plot holes about them that are never satisfactorily resolved).The thing is this: Lynne Marie is a good writer. She knows how to create scenes that draw you in, and includes lots of good detail that is almost 100 percent historically accurate. She creates an interesting plot as well. I just could not connect with this story, right through until the end -- and it is highly likely that this has more to do with me than with the book.

    Pretty goodThis was a pretty good book. It has good characters that are well defined and developed, although I felt like the heroine is very immature throughout. Yes, she is spirited and lovely...but a true pain. She persistently and consistently pushed and causes problems that involve herself and everyone in her path. I have a hard time understanding what men see in her. The plot is good and the other characters are good...accept for the Raven and his camp. I dont know that I would recommend this book because it isnt great, but I enjoyed the read.

    I enjoyed the book a lot...Katriona drove me nuts and at times felt she was way to headstrong but the banter between her and sir Morgan was fun!! Really enjoy reading books by this author!! Highly recommend!!
