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.

I usually really enjoy reading Julie Garwood's books. Even her lesser works are enjoyable to read, as she depicts her characters so well that you really want to know what happens to them. The Lion's Lady started out well with the heroine, Christina, getting adopted by the Dakota Indians. Her real mother had escaped an abusive husband, the king of some unnamed tiny European nation. The mother leaves behind a journal for her daughter, explaining the mystery of her evil father's ways - which the reader gets snippets of with each chapter. Christina's adoptive mother, Merry, had agreed to raise Christina after her real mother saved the life of Merry and her son. Merry has every intention of returning Christina to her "people" when she is older.
The story then jumps ahead to England, where Christina has just been introduced to "polite society." She meets Lyon, the Marquis of Lyonwood and is immediately attracted to him. She learns from her grandfather's attorneys that she will lose control of her inheritance to her evil father if she hasn't married by her next birthday. Her nasty Aunt Patricia wants the money, so she devises a scheme to get Christina married off to someone she can control, someone who will sign over a huge chunk of the inheritance to the aunt just to be able to have the "prize" of Christina. Christina decides to take matters into her own hands and proposes to Lyon. The main plot deals with whether or not they will marry.
Unfortunately,I felt the story took off in too many different directions, leaving many loops in the story and getting "facts" as established by the author mixed up. It was so hard to follow along - lots of bits and pieces didn't add up.

This was a really good romance with a mysterious and captivating story to it. I found myself pulled in right from the prologue and wanting to know how the story would end all the way through.

I especially enjoyed the hero (Lyon) and the heroine (Christina). There banter was funny and extremely entertaining and their love story was sweet and steamy. Christina was so funny I really loved her, she's one of the best heroine's I've read in a long time.

My main complaint every time I read a Julie Garwood book is that her narrating style isn't my favorite. I prefer a first person POV story, or if it is third person I like it to be a limited POV. Garwood tends to write in third person but it's not limited POV. I find it jumpy at times when I'm getting so many characters different thoughts. It definitely affected the flow of the story more than a few times for me. My other small complaint has nothing to do with writing style but the wrap up of the story, and as unrealistic as this is, I really wished Christina and Lyon could've gone back to see her family :(

Overall this was a very entertaining and good read, I would definitely recommend it to any historical romance fan.

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.
