    5. First -- to correct the description: it is Aubrielle not Belle.Second -- I love Aubrielle! She is a forthright, young woman who can read, write, and knows more about the Arthurian legend than she does the latest fashions.

    7. Taming of the Shrew meets The Holy Grail"e was stubborn, belligerent, headstrong and opinionated, but she was also sweet, charming, intelligent, and compassionate.

It is a fun read where once upon a time the big handsome knight marries the beautiful lady yes, but with plenty of romance, I intrigue a d laughter along the way. There seems to be plenty happening at all times at least enough to keep you entranced and flipping page after page with excitement for the next paragraph all to find the answers to the questions that are burning hot A truly delightful boo [...]

    9. No!It may be a shock that I would rate this book four stars instead of five. I don't think I have ever given less than five stars to one of Kathryn s books, but it lost a star on the very last two sentences. No! This is not a way to end this wonderful book! Totally unnecessary! You just love to make me cry! See if you don't agree after reading this, or just skip that last two sentences and you will love it! For shame 'Ms Le Vewue! And I so loved it till then!

    10. Best of SeriesThis Medieval tale contains everything a great book should . Multi dimensional characters. An intimate knowledge of the norms of the time. Twists and scenes in which your heart will leap in your throat. It holds it's own and do not concern yourself that this book concludes a trilogy. Knowledge of the prior two is absolutely not necessary in this gem of a read.

    11. Secret of the Holy GrailI love reading about medieval times, knights and lords and ladies. I really enjoyed reading about Aubrielle and Kenneth and all the events happening in their lives. It was humorous, heartwarming and heartwrenching the way they handled each other. I look forward to reading more of your work.

    12. I enjoyed the story behind this book however the heroine ruined it for me. I could not come to like her at all and I truly felt sorry for Kenneth. Still I won't let this deter me as I have been thoroughly enjoying what this author has to offer.

    13. LOVE LE VEQUES NOVELS, WHY?I love the strong but sensitive menI love the love scenes, very intimateI love the story lines MOST OF ALL, the epilogue !! I love the fast forward to their future and their descendents. It totally rounds out the book.

    14. Great storyI have read most of her books in the last year and can say that I have loved all. If you love historically correct books then you need to read Kathryn Le Veque's books. They will give you many hours of pleasure and escape.

    15. As always greatAs always a great book. Kept me laughing and very drawn to reading forever. Always anxious to see what was next. The very last was a great shock and It made me crying be prepared!

    16. 4.5 starsI really loved this but the epilogue was a killer although historically realistic . I really loved the characters and the story was great. This author is fast becoming one of my favorites I already have the next one lined up to read.

    17. I loved Aubrielle & Kenneth's story so much that I rate it 4.5 stars. The epilogue was beautiful and touching but that last couple of paragraphs crushed me I went from aww to tears in a matter of seconds.

    18. Enjoyed this immensely. The heroine was somewhat annoying until her back-story unfolded and I came to understand her better. Once that happened, it became the can't-put-down story I so love LeVeque for!

    19. Wonderfulthere we have it t again another great readn't wait to read more favorite author !!! on to book 3 of drangonblade

    20. I hated this one. I can't stand what's her name and wished that she had died. I sort of liked Kenneth, he was at least a lot better than the other characters.

    21. This is the 2nd book of the Dragonblade series. As I loved the first book, the second one didn't disappoint. At this point, I can tell I will be reading the next book and thoroughly enjoying it.

    22. LovedLove reading Katherine LeVeque books and this one was another good one!! She writes her heroes with down to earth emotions. They are human just like we are.
