Format: Mass Market Paperback
Setting -- England/Wales/Ireland 1199 to 1202
The most interesting aspect of this book is the history element. It's set in the early days of the realm of King John - the king who was so bad that the barons forced the Magna Carta on him.
As for the romance, virtually every romance novel involves overcoming obstacles to finding true love. Usually the pair are from warring countries or he's killed a family member or something serious is in the way. In this book, there is no good reason for our heroine not to be willing, if not thrilled, to be betrothed to Falcon. He's young, handsome and even on the same side. Why he puts up with her running off to court and total self-centeredness is hard to understand.
Still, the pace is enough that I never doubted that I'd finish the book. It's the first of a trilogy (with The Marriage Prize and The Dragon and the Jewel). I doubt I'll go out of my way to read the other two volumes.

This was the first *romance* book I ever read and I have to say that I was hooked. I read this several years ago and have read many more since than, but the details of many of the others seem lost to me while this one, I do remember. Perhaps becuase it was the first of the kind i read, or maybe just because of how powerful a book it was.
I like this book ( and all of Ms. Henley's book) for a variety of reasons. First, they arent shy on length. Nothing is more aggrevating than getting into the story, falling in love with the characters and era and than having the story end. Ms. Henley write books on the longer side and also series *sagas*. I also like her discriptive language and her ability to make you feel for and like the main characters despite (or maybe because of) their sometimes obvious cahracter faults. Sometimes romance novels feel a bit *xeroxed*... like the writer is just changing the names, haircolor, and era and slapping a new cover on it. While I would have to say that this book fulfills a certain predictable romance *formula* (beautiful, willfull long haired heroine...brooding dark and head over heels in love on the inside, hero.... it really doesnt feel like a photocopy of every other book written in that form. It feels more like the original, that was emulated. The details are richer, the writing is better, the readers involvement is more than with many other books (even some of Ms henleys other books)
The love scenes that Ms Henly writes seem different to me than other writers too... while less timid than some other writers (maybe julie garwood?) they arent quite brazen either (maybe like some of joanna lindseys?)... And I am not finding fault with julie garwood or joanna lindsy...Im really just trying to place virginia henley in the love-scene-scale...

This is my second book of Virgnia Henley and once again, I was entertained and is impressed by her style. I am almost finished with The Dragon and The Jewel, the 2nd book of this PLANTAGENET TRILOGY. The last book is THE MARRIAGE PRIZE. Basing it on her books that I've read, Virginia Henley really knows her plot. She corporates history with romance in the most factual way. She is straight forward and doesn't use a lot flowery words even in the hero/heroine's story. I do enjoy flowery words from time to time but on this occasion, Her style was a welcome change to me that I didn't mind it at all.
The Falcon and the Flower affected me in the most bizarre ways. No doubt, I enjoyed this book. I find the PLANTAGENET interesting so the added history in this book thoroughly pulled me in. I love Falcon and Jasmine love story as well... but then I also felt guilty enjoying their story to the fullest because I don't like men hitting their wives. I feel if they did it once, they will do it again... and indeed, even towards the end of this book, Falcon did hit her again. ugh. Perhaps that is why I rated this book a four stars (4 1/2 if I could). That could have been omitted to proved he changed... I wanted to not like this book mainly for that reason but shamefully, i find my heart in spastic mode cuz I can see how much Falcon was drawn to Jasmine. He was VERY MUCH in love with her. It was a love at first sight. Jasmine didn't have a Title nor lands to offer, she wasn't trained to be a chatelain or a wife nor can she supposedly bore him sons or children... meanwhile, Falcon De Burgh could choose any bride he wants. There were many beautiful heiress who were fully trained to be chatelain and a submissive wife. There were many who could bring advantage to him but he chose Jasmine.

After reading this book, I sat back and wondered "Now what was that about?" Frankly, I got tired of all the sex, not that I'm a prude by any stretch of the imagination. What bugged me throughout this book was the constant "ache" Falcon had for Jasmine and how she continued to turn him down. And then, suddenly, when she gets pregnant she loves him. Please. It was so unbelievable. I'm all for a fiesty heroine and a dark, brooding hero, but for God's sake this was ridiculous. And the shenanigan's at King John's court were just plain silly. I only read this for the historical content and I was sadly let down with that too. This won't be one I repeat.
