The Dragon and the Jewel by Virginia Henley
The Dragon and the Jewel by Virginia Henley
I received this book as a gift from a college roommate and I have read it over and over. It is one of my all-time favorites. And since I read this first Henley book, I have built a collection of about 11 of her novels. Simon de Montfort is my dream hero, and the most romantic leading man ever. He sees what he wants and he takes it!
My only warning is this, if you love Simon and Eleanor, DON'T read THE MARRIAGE PRIZE. They are here as an older couple and it is heartbreaking. I also highly recommend DREAM LOVER by V. Henley. There is a little bit of violence but if you love Simon de Montfort, you will also love Sean O'toole.
Nobody writes romances as well as Virginia Henley.

I especially enjoyed the section about how people felt when their subsequent children were born. I plan to try… Read more
