DREAMS OF LILACS
Genre: Historical Romance, Medieval, France
Moving from England to a castle in ruins and the whirlwind of the French court, this is a tale for lovers of feisty heroines, Cinderella fairy tales, amnesia, mayhem and a hefty cast of characters. The pacing is a bit slow and the large cast moves the focus from the hero and heroine to everyone else, detracting from the primary romance.
Tired of being the girl in a family of overprotective men, Isabelle de Piaget seizes the opportunity for adventure. She boards a ship bound for France, but is shipwrecked. Gervase de Seger rescues the amnesiac “boy” he finds on the shore and brings him home. Though Gervase realizes the lad is a lady, he tells almost no one and sends her to work in the keep’s kitchen. When Isabelle’s memory returns and Gervase discovers she’s a de Piaget, it’s nothing compared to the passion that sizzles between them. (JOVE, May, 336 pp., $7.99)
