    It mostly sucked me in with the plot and then it let loose with the throbbing members and round white heaving bosoms I stopped reading at the first hint of a pulsating penis, because if I wanted to read a romance novel, I would go read one Not a romance novel masquerading as...

    I was reluctant to read it at first because some of the reviews mentioned throbbing members and heaving breasts and that was really off putting as it reminded me of those really cheap novels But, after realizing this was an historical novel and the author was an archaeologist I decided to give it a go.And I m glad I did The story drawed me from the first page and I was delighted with the descriptions about the Scottish Iron Age strong holds and about the roman formations The romance is so I was reluctant to read it at first because some of the reviews mentioned throbbing members and heaving breasts and that was really off putting as it reminded me of those really cheap novels But, after realizing this was an historical novel and the author was an archaeologist I decided to give it a go.And I m glad I did T...

    Risi Reading Challenge 2013Sometimes a book sits on your bookshelf and you keep on saying to yourself that you will get round to reading it one day My lovely book friend, Elaine, always insisted that Eremon would give Jamie Fraser from the Outlander series a good run in the macho male stakes, well, I always doubted that bit, but I have to admit that Eremon does have a certain male arrogance that is rather appealing.The story is set in the distant past, when the Roman invasion of Britain is well Risi Reading Challenge 2013Sometimes a book sits on your bookshelf and you keep on saying to yourself that you will get round to reading it one day ...

    More of a 4.5 for me The storytelling was as good as it gets Jules Watson is definitely on my top list of great authors who know what they re doing.The White Mare had many things that I look for in a novel well described setting, development in romance, and dialogue that touches the heart There was a moment where I felt the story tug at my heart and that s a very rare occurrence If such an occurrence happened in any book that I read, I would probably automatically place it in the 4 5 star More of a 4.5 for me The storytelling was as good as it gets Jules Watson is definitely on my top list of great authors who know what they re doing.The White Mare had many things that I look for in a novel well described setting, development in romance, and dialogue that touches the heart There was a moment where I felt the story tug at my heart and that s a very rare occurrence If such an occurrence happened in any book that I read, I would probably automatically place it in the 4 5 star range.Rhiann is ...

    This is a book set in Scotland at the time Agricola and the Romans had been charged with making Scotland part of the Roman empire.Rhian is a priestess and Eremon is an Irish prince in exile since his uncle took up arms against him and chased him out of Ireland Reaching Scotland, Eremon s goal is to gain renown and make allies and return to Ireland to claim his kingdom.There is no mention of a seannad ever having elected Eremon, whic...

    I was disappointed in this book I had read several reviews and most complained about the sexual scenes I wasn t even bothered by those What bothered me was the lack of depth in the characters Rhiann isn t endearing and Eremon seems like all he does is think about himself and his penis I realized that I was over halfway done through the book and nothing really had happened The characters are only developed surface level and the book includes plenty of fluffy filling I will not be reading a I was disappointed in this book I had read several r...

    If you like historical fiction set in early Scotlandthen you will love this book If you like books like The Mists of Avalon then you will like this book.I could say this book did leave me with little frustrationsthe relationship between the two main characters is aggravating It just seemed like they would not talk to each other and find out what the heck was wrong with one another There are too many secrets and too many lies They eventually grow to love one an...

    It started well and I thought I was onto a winner.as the cover said, it was an ambitious novel to write as a first I allowed a little extra latitude for suspension of disbelief etc and ploughed on Then somewhere around p200 I realised that the author had clearly read The Eagle and the Raven and lifted a main plot from it but with different characters I also began to realise that the dialogue had become wooden and the characters were not developing.It had promised so much not least,...

    Quite interesting Always difficult with such a book, as historically it has to be a lot of guesswork, but read quite convincingly Always found it interesting that the Romans made it as far north as to set up the Antonine Wall, and that they retreated to Hadrian s Wall and gave up on the north...
