Fires of Winter is a journey through 12th-century England as seen from the perspective of Bruno, the son of the Lord of Jernaeve and a castle whore, who clawed his way up from nothing to become a Knight of the Body to King Stephen; and Melusine, the coddled daughter of a Scottish nobleman loyal to Stephen’s rival, the Empress Matilda.
Gellus really all about the history here. I almost gave up on this book several times. Her noble name made her a threat to the new king. This is a book to lose yourself in.
The events that bring Melusine and Bruno together are tragic to say the least and my heart hurt for them. But what makes this more than ju I am a big fan of Roberta Gellis medieval romances. Gellis is really good at delivering interesting, true to their period, characters and in immersing her story in history. The only real highlights of the book wintef the few times Bruno and Melusine are together, although robera did get a bit corny and outdated at times, ROFL the constant references by Bruno to his “standing man” Sir Jehad and no I’m not going to explain what that means, if I did I’d get censored.
Melusine of Ulle is from Cumbria in the North and when the last of her family dies fighting against King Stephen she is brought to geellis as a lady in waiting to Queen Maude. If it had not been a book I had promised to review, I would never have finished it. Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. Oct 13, Sherry rated it it was amazing. Folks picking up this winrer for smut tend to be disappointed as that is only one aspect of a multi-faceted tale.
Melusine and Bruno are great together even though they were forced on each other. You can read this item using any of the following Kobo apps and devices: A bastard son of an English lord, Bruno of Jernaeve was born with nothing.
Both she and Hugh had flres attention when they were in the oof line. The wedding night scene in this book is a bit disturbing and hard to get through, but after that the “standing man” bits were priceless and worth it just for that. Want to Read saving….

Ratings and Reviews 0 3 star ratings 0 reviews. Fires of Winter Volume 2 of Tales of Jernaeve. He doesn’t want to force his wife, feeling terrible about the wedding night. The romance aspect of this novel was dramatically oversold.
As for romance, the love that slowly grows between these too is a fiery passion, a love for home and the man or woman who might be right for you.
I tell you this to explain that while the book alternates view points, they also go back in the story line to explain the same event from the opposite point of view.
Three stars, only recommended for die-hard Gellis fans.
We’ve already seen it happen once! Thanks for telling us about the problem. The writing style is straight to the point, not flowery. I posted a few quotes on that thread we have about worst sexual terms.
I will admit, however, that my rating in part has to do with the role this book played in my life. This one is about Bruno and Maud.

Besides that, the author just went on and on about battles and kings. Near the end of the book, Bruno tells Melusine that he hadn’t touched witner woman since he’d been with her.
Lord of the Wolves. This is a really nice story that shows we can have an honest romance with a history lesson thrown in without the sexual prominence overtaking our story line.
