I did enjoy this book but I had to give it 3 stars because I was totally disappointed and felt the author really copped out when 1/2 way through the book it's revealed ------ Don't read further if you don't want to know -- our heroine, Zahirah is not really Arab at all, but English! Not even 1/2 Arab. Not even a speck of Arab. In fact Sebastian doesn't even really declare his love to Zahirah until he suspects it...although I think it's clear he would have loved her regardless. I don't know why the author felt it necessary to do this. But it sort of wrecks the main premise and conflict of the book, that Sebastian and Zahirah can't help themselves and love each other despite their vast ethnic, religious, and cultural differences. The result: it just doesn't deliver the same punch (even though Zahirah doesn't know this about herself until near the end).

Sebastian and Zahirah are a refreshingly sweet couple. For once, the hero of the story does not spend most of the book denying his feelings. Sebastian falls true and hard for Zahirah, proclaiming:

"I love you. I don't care if you're brown or white. I don't care if you're English, Arab, half of each, or not of this world at all. I love you."

The entire book is filled with beauty like this. Tina St. John makes your heart do flip- flops with pure romance and steamy love scenes that never disappoint, nor do they get too repetative.
Both the hero and heroine are devoted to one another, enough so to turn away from their own people, and risk their own lives to protect one another.
When you sit down with this book, be prepared to stay in your seat. You won't be able to put the book down. You'll enjoy exciting sword battles, steamy love scenes, sweet romance, and a great base- story that keeps the book moving.

I am on a great reading roll lately with excellent books, most recently this wonderful follow on title to Tina St. John's WHITE LION'S LADY. The romance in BLACK LION'S BRIDE was even more than I hoped for! How can you top a story that has a great, dark and dangerous warrior hero and an elusive, deadly assassin (femme fatale) for a heroine? I don't think you can! It's a story filled with emotion, action, and lots of passion that we romance readers all love. I loved it!

This is another keeper read from one of my favorite historical romance authors! I loved Sebastian of Montborne, and Zahirah, the beautiful assassin, was tortured yet compassionate. I was never sure where the plot was heading, which kept me turning pages as fast as I could. Add on a very sensual romance element and you have a true keeper of a read! Brava, Tina St. John!

I'll be following her for now on. I read about an average of 4-5 books a week and I have to say that this book has really stuck to me.
Sebastian is loyal to his King, but ends up falling for the woman who is the daughter of his enemy and is sent to assasinate his king. Though Zahirah comes to love Sebastian and doesn't wish to assasinate his king anymore because she values Sebastian's trust so much, a new threat emerges that may break their love and causes a rift that must be forged.
The betrayals and the interaction between the characters made this story real for me. The internal conflicts that each of the main characters went through made it all the more emotional and a more compelling read for me. Finally, I've found a book that holds my interest, so much that I don't get bored and have to start skipping ahead to find interesting bits, but that I can read through and be satisified. I also agree with some of the other reviewers about Logan, Sebastian's loyal friend, who was a fun character throughout the book. I strongly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, heart-warming read. For someone who reads so much and is not always satisfied, this was definitely a rare find. I am now ordering the rest of Tina St.John's books and hope to be equally as satisfied, or more!

BLACK LION'S BRIDE is a riveting blend of passion, intrigue, and excitement. As I have come to expect from reading her other books, Tina St. John does an outstanding job of putting you right there in the story with her characters. Secrets, danger, forbidden love - this book literally has it all. My heart was pounding through all the scenes of danger (not to mention all of the passionate ones!) and several times I wondered how in the world Sebastian and Zahirah would find their happy ever after. The ending had me sighing and wanting an alluring,... man like Sebastian for myself!
This was a beautifully sensuous love story with a highly original plot and wonderful characters. I read it in one setting! I also loved the 2 other books that go along with BLACK LION'S BRIDE. They are WHITE LION'S LADY and LADY OF VALOR. The only trouble is I just wish Tina St. John could writer faster!!

Tina St. John blew my socks off with WHITE LION'S LADY, and when she introduced Sebastian of Montborne in that book, I thought he deserved a book of his own. In BLACK LION'S BRIDE, St. John delivers!!
The heroine of this book, Zahirah, is a Muslim assassin set to kill Richard the Lionhearted during the Crusades. But when she's unwittingly tied to Sebastian, a Crusader and one of her sworn enemies, the sparks really fly. The characters in this book are well-drawn, and the plot twists and turns are anything but predictable. The setting was well-researched and added texture to the already-spectacular story. I absolutely could not put this book down!
An A+ read from a not-to-be-missed author. Highly recommended!
