I GIVE THIS BOOK:
I loved reading a story with a love story where the couple is in their 40's & 50's, haven't read many of those and it was a nice change. Some parts of the story were kind of slow, but the story on the whole was just so sweet and once I got into it I didn't want to stop reading until I finished it.
Lucianna was definitely a character that took me some time to like. She was loyal and caring to those that she loved, but because she was keeping a secret her actions sometimes seemed harsh and cruel - even though I knew why she was behaving the way she was.
Sir Balduin was such a lovable character! From the moment he is introduced in the book he is so sweet and caring toward Lucianna that it you can't help but love him. I loved all the things he did throughout the story to woo her and kept hoping that she would finally give in and accept him.
Loving Lucianna is the first book I've read by this author, but I really enjoyed it. This is the first book in a new series but I found out while reading this that the main characters, as well a some minor ones, are from a different book - Illuminations of the Heart. This didn't hamper my enjoyment, as the author did a fabulous job giving many details about their past, but I wish I had known beforehand so I could had read that book first.
I recommend this to fans of historical romance.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.
