More like 15 stars but I thought the overall rating way overestimated and the other comments too lenient with this bookI cannot say it is oorly written but neither is it nicely so Some sentences ringed out of time to me I never liked ANY of the characters and could not care for them Alys is a childish brat who finally realizes how she s been and hopefully will redeem herself in the future after the ending of the book however she s rather stupid and it s uite Dedication and Leadership Techniques painful to hear her whinge The so called hero does not have much for himself the only words that come to my mind thinking about him arelainer than 神様 [Kamisama] plain boring and lonely loner The overall story does not hold much and to my opinion is ratheroor I never understood where the blooming love between the Hh came from The feelings of the characters are never described which does not allow for a lot of emotions bonding What irritated me the most however were the regular inconsistencies stupidities done by the characters First Alys whinged she could not go home on her own as she truly did not know the way the author justified that However two days later when they were further away from her home castle she still knew the village where to go to get food Secondly in this village she begged for food and told a tale that having food would help her get back to her Mom and be forgiven however a few minutes later she asked the woman the way to London and thought herself so witty for having misled her into thinking she would be on the road to London Last one when Alys was rescued from the villains just before Piers was to see the King to get his rightful title and roperty she reluctantly agreed to leave but did NOT tell the information she learnt that would make the difference for Piers despite her claiming she loved him and would do anything for his wellbeing and happiness And the hero was not wiser than the stupid chit he also did something really stupid which obviously turned bad My major beef with this story was the use of the F word Now I have no roblem with using that word myself but then again I don t live in 1276 where I can only imagine such a word wasn t used According to Wikipedia the first known usage of this curse was in 1475 200 years after this story took The Full Experience place The overuse of this word by the hero and I use that word loosely just seemed wrong and inconsistent with the times Since superstition was alive and well in medieval times I understand the allure of the Foxe Ring and believe that true love would happen to those found together in the ring at midnight of the full moon So the fact that Alys Foxe fell in love with our anti hero Piers Mallory didn t surprise me What did though was Piers attitude towards Alys and her continued begging andleading to go wit. Nowhere in medieval England are three women so You Dont Have to Say You Love Me powerful or adored as the heiresses of Fallstowe Castle Sybilla the ruthless beauty Cecily theure hearted innocentand Alys the youngest sister whose wild spirit has yet to be matchedLady Alys thinks everyone knows the leg.
H her husband His continued acrimony and Voodoo Season plain old nastiness towards Alys should have had her running back to her sister regardless of said sisters behavior It was 1276 after all when women just weren t safe outside the home and honestly Piers looking like a homesless bum could have been anyone intent on harming Alys but did she give a single thought to her own safety Nope She clung to Piers like a darn barnacleWhen Alys found out who Bevan s father was why did she not tell Ira Piers grandfather when he rescued her before Piers saw the King This is information that would have been invaluable to Piers in his time of need So why did someone who loved him toieces not turn over this vital information especially since she was leaving with her sister I just didn t understand this behavior towards someone she l o v e dNow I do own the other books in this series but honestly I hated Sybilla and can t imagine enjoying her story and the other sister is so The Walking Dead Live! preachy and God fearing and headed to a nunnery that I can t even imagine reading her story never mind enjoying it So this being the best sister of the lot and her story was just so so I won t be continuing this series It s a shame since I ve loved every other Heather Grothaus book I ve read I ll definitely read this author again just not this series Never Kiss a Stranger by Heather GothausHistorical Romance March 1st 20114 stars Never Kiss a Stranger is a medieval romance which features a tortured and noble hero that romance fans will adore Alys Foxe is young and impetuous noble woman who is somewhat spoiled Alys rebels when her overbearing older sister tries to tame her by arranging a marriage for her Alys is determined to find another suitable husband of her own choosing But Alys is a bit romantic and believes in the magic of the Foxe ruins where herarents met and found love She visits the site in hopes of finding her own true love there too There she meets a stranger named Piers Piers wants nothing to do with Alys He was nearly killed by his murderous step mother and step brother Piers is the true heir to his father s small estate and is on a journey to see King Edward and Scotty Scotts Guide to Relationships plead for his lands returned However Alys sees her chance in Piers and blackmails him into taking her as his traveling companion to London But their journey has not gone unnoticed by Piers s enemies or Alys overprotective andowerful sister Although this story starts with Alys I really became involved with Piers journey to reclaim his rightful birthright Alys was initially difficult for me to warm up to because she was sometime hard headed and seemed spoiled and immature at times But as the book rogressed I admired her backbone and support in Piers Not just how she could use him to avoid her arra.
