I love Brenda Joyce’s books and this is one of her series that I stumbled upon when I was at Barnes & Nobles looking for new books to buy. The first book that I ever bought of Brenda Joyce was The Conqueror the first book in the de Warenne Dynasty series. I loved it so much that when I found out that there were more books of the delightful de Warenne family I just had to buy them. I loved reading all about the books of the beginning of the de Warenne family that started in 1069 and continued on to the present year in the series of the mid 1800. I have to say that I was very intrigued with this novel when I read it because it had some very intriguing characters that contect with the current de Warenne and O’Neil family. Brenda Joyce is such a talented writer and I have been a loyal fan since I found this novel at the bookstore and I’ve bought as many of her books as possible.

I love historical romances and I’ve read all types of them so it was a joy to read this novel for the first time. Torn from his Romany mother’s arms as a small boy, Viscount Emilian St. Xavier has spent a lifetime ignoring the whispers of gypsy that follows him everywhere. A nobleman with wealth, power and privilege, he does not care what the gadjos think. But when the Romany come to Derbyshire with news of his mother’s murder at the hands of a mob, his world implodes. And Ariella de Warenne is the perfect object for his lust and revenge. Ariella de Warenne’s heritage assures her a place in proper society, though as a radical and independent thinker she scorns her peers’ frivolous pursuits in the Ton, fashion and marriage. Until a Roma camp arrives at Rose Hill, and she finds herself drawn to their charismatic leader, Emilian. Even when he warns her away, threatening that he intends to seduce and destroy her, she cannot refuse him. For Ariella is just as determined to fight for their dangerous love.

I loved reading this novel because it is about the descendents of Rolfe and Ceidre de Warenne from the book The Conqueror. Ariella and Emilian have many issues in this novel that they have to get through in order to finally get together which is wonderful to read because Ariella and Emilian are such passionate characters. Again there is a the theme of fueding race in this novel that I’ve loved reading in the first three novels of this series centuries before. Now the English and the Gypsy are like mortal enemies but luckily not all of the English and Gypsy hate one another but there is bad blood between these two people. It is also what keeps the hero Emilian from truly accepting his love for the heroine Ariella and it was one emotional bump after another in their journey of love. I could hardly put the book down because it had me captivated from the first page with Emilian’s very hard past experience with the English people such as his father and his family members.
Throughout the entire novel I was rooting for Ariella and Emilian to end happily with one another because they had to struggle through many heartaches to be with one another. I haven’t been disappointed by any of her novels in this series or any of her other works and I don’t think I ever will because they only get better with each book that comes out. I’m very anxious for the next book to come out in this wonderful series because there are a lot of characters in this novel that I really want to know more about especially the complicated marriage of Ariella’s half-brother Alexi. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
