This is definitely one of Lindsey's better medieval romances. The only complaint I can make is that the hero's ex-mistress in "So Speaks the Heart," which is an earlier Lindsey medieval romance, is also named Amelia. Are they related?!? Hah.
All in all, I highly recommend "When Love Awaits." Other superb Lindsey medieval romances, if you are interested, include "Prisoner of My Desire" and "Defy Not the Heart."
Perhaps I've read too many historical romances already cuz I find this book somewhat a combination of Elizabeth Lowell's UNTAMED, ENCHANTED and Jude Deveraux's VELVET PROMISE. Of course, there is also a lot in this book that is of it's own originality and identity... but from time to time, I get this Deja Vu feeling... What's so ironic about this though is that I actually loved the combination added to it's originality. The three books is actually one of my favorites. Lady Leonie remined me of Judith in the Velvet Promise while Rolfe reminded me of Dominic in Untamed... Judith is one of my favorite heroine as well, so is Leonie now too... She's independent, intelligent and strong-willed. She is proud yet humble when the need arise. She fights for what she believes in but will also give-in when she sees it needed. She is a LADY through and through...Read more ›
This is one of my favorite stories by Lindsey. Leonie is warm and giving, although rather prideful. Rolfe is dark, dangerous, and handsome. Together they sizzle. A delightful love story.
The story of Leonie and Rolfe is truly amazing. Although Leonie's stubborness got to me at times... I still admire the strength and determination she showed in her marriage to Rolfe. Rolfe seemed to be the perfect hero. He had the strength and the gentleness that every woman craves. He never gave up on gaining Leonie's love and affection.
The book was full of misunderstandings which of course made it all the more exciting to read. It focuses more on their relationship with a little less action then some of her stories... but that's ok! It was kind of refreshing. Classic Lindsey!!
I've gotta have all her books... and I'll keep collecting 'till I do. Don't miss this one.

When Love Awaits is hard to put down. This is one of Lindsey's earlier works. As so, it's riddled with secrets and misconceptions that I could not wait to see unravelled. Read morePublished on June 9 2003 by K. Hill

What makes Ms. Lindsey's medieval romantic tale so compelling is her character development. Some of her novels have incredible storylines that supersede the characters. Read morePublished on Sept. 8 2001
