4.0 out of 5 stars A great beginning of a great series! May 15 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lion's Lady is very entertaining and enjoyable. The aspect of an English child raised by an American Indian tribe and returned to England stirs the imagination. The embers between Christina and Lyon glow to a red hot fire. Suspense and humor are a bonus Ms. Garwood adds to her writing.
Be sure to read the entire series: 1. The Lion's Lady 2. The Guardian 3. The Gift 4. Castles.

I love all Julie Garwood books. I have all of them and I've read them so many times. My favorite books are RANSOM, THE SECRET, THE WEDDING, THE PRIZE. All of them are so romantic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, I recommend it. March 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
O.k., first let me start off by saying that Julie Garwood cannot write a bad novel. I have read almost all of them and have enjoyed every single one. This book was no exception. But, (you knew this was coming) this book was not at the top of my list. I just couldn't connect with these characters like I have with other characters of Julie's. I did not relate to Christina at all, but that is more my problem than the character's. I also felt as if the ending was very rushed. It went so fast, I had a hard time keeping up and wished for the sake of the characters, we could have had more conversation and interacting rather than just a quick third-person, matter-of-fact narrative. I don't want anyone to think I disliked the book. I enjoyed reading it, but just wished I had gotten more involved with the story-line as I have with almost all of Garwood's books. In the end, I do recommend this book. If you buy it, you won't be disapointed. I also HIGHLY recommned any of Garwood's mid-evil novels. Those are my favorites.
Also recommended: Honor's Splendor (Garwood), The Gift (Garwood) The Prize (Garwood), Castles (Garwood), Princess & Lady of Desire, by Galen Foley.

5.0 out of 5 stars very funny...another Garwood great June 7 2003
By S. Lin
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story is about a girl named Christina, who was raised by the Native Americans. Her mother died when she was 2 while trying to escape from her evil husband. She kept a diary and Christina would read it when she got older.
Lyon is a jaded man whose dead wife had cheated on him with his brother. He is enchanted with Christina and her strange way of thinking.
They meet when Christina is forced to go to England with her aunt. All along Christina avoids telling him about her past for fear of putting Lyon in danger because her grandfather left her a whole bunch of money and both her real father and her aunt wants it.
I thought that the way she started most chapters with an entry from Christina's mother's diary was very nice. There were lots of witty conversations between Christina and Lyon, although I did find it a little annoying that Christina waited so long to tell Lyon about her past. And I love the ending! I think it was her best ending out of all the books I've read.

Christina Bennett has come to London to avenge her mother's death. She uses her European title of Princess Christina when she is presented to London society. Christina hides many secrets - particularly that she was raised by American Native Indians. At times, her presentation to and acceptance by London society seems a little stretched but it is such a great story that you overlook those little bits of non-reality.
Lyon, The Marquis of Lyonwood, is a cynical and hard man. He has the usually rakish views of English historical romance in that he does not believe in love or even expect to meet a woman that could mean more to him than the physical side of a relationship.
Christina and Lyon meet at a party and from the first glimpse, they know their attraction to each other is certainly unique. Although Lyon doesn't want a relationship with a woman beyond a mistress, he finds himself seeking out Christina again and again. Christina is unlike any woman he has ever met, she is rather blunt and does not fear or hide her fierce attraction to Lyon. Since Lyon has a lot of experience solving mysteries, through his secretive work for the English government, he senses when something is not truthful. And he senses Christina is not being entirely truthful when answering questions about her past. Lyon becomes almost obsessed with finding out about Christina's past and finds himself wildly attracted to her. Christina, in turn, is very attracted to Lyon but will not tell him her secrets because she must maintain her Princess front and knows she will return to America eventually.
This is my third Garwood book. I would have rated them all 5 stars but this is the best one yet. The humor is subtle but at times makes you laugh out loud.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed!! Feb. 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book by Julie Garwood that I have read. I was sorely disappointed with it. At first it was OK. The idea of a white child being raised with Indians was good. Once she gets to England it gets boring. I felt the book just dragged and dragged. It's obvious that Christina and Lyon are attracted to each other from the beginning. OK, then what???? We don't reaad of her father until the very end. All this build up about him and he has only a few pages in the end of the story. And what about her Indian family?? She could've at least gone and seen them. She sure had enough money to. So much for loving your family as she proclaimed to. I just couldn't get into these characters. I'm glad I took this book out of the library rather than have spent hard earned monry on it.
