    1. Lady Robyn is the sequel to Knight Errant is back in 1460, getting into plenty of trouble, still in love with Edward, Earl Of March. Her sense of justice and fair play goes against the medieval mind of battle for power. She knows the common people want only peace but the aristocracy continues their scheming for more power and riches. Edward's father wants the crown. Robyn only wants to marry Edward, retreat to their own home to raise their children in peace and fears it won't happen. As winter b [...]

    2. The best -- the most fun -- of the trilogy. I agree with other reviews claiming that Robertson's writing is uneven, but it's also lovely and lyrical in spots, so chalk it up to poor editing. Historywise, I learned quite a bit I didn't know before, which is half the fun.(I usually have 's "Kings of England" page open, and jump around to other historical figures.)BUT -- This was the most exuberant of the three books. I loved it. If it were a movie, they'd call it "a romp."

    3. I love this type of novel. Time travel into interesting historyis set are not quite comparable to Diana Gabaldonbut close. This series are fun, written with the modern viewpoint and espressions inserted I hope there may be a @4 in the seriesgoing to explore that.

    4. Just your typical time travel novel, except its in Medieval England. After reading the first novel, Knight Errant, I had to continue the series, just to see how things work out. It is just entertaining enough to want to see it through to the end of all 3 novels. An entertaining read, the magic thrown in is interesting, and I always like stuff that deals with British history, even in a cheesy, romance novel kind of way.

    5. I liked the previous book in this series, Knight Errant, and this one is almost as good. It's an historical romance based in the time of the War of the Roses (before Shakespeare). It has witchcraft and supernatural occurrences as well, much in the vein of Gabaldon.

    6. This series is a set of historical novels masquerading as time-travel fantasy romance. I'm going to avoid reading my histories of the Wars of the Roses"," until I've finished reading The White Rose"," the concluding volume of the series. I may not be able to resist pulling out my old “Kingmaker” board game and setting out pieces"," to try and figure out the movements of characters and factions.

    7. This book had the worst ending of any book I have ever read in my entire life! I am so mad at this author, I cannot believe he did this! Who ends a book like this?? Is he writing a 4th? Why would he do this?? Unbelievable!! I loved these characters and feel 110% betrayed by this author!

    8. A light, fun interesting story. I loved the historical aspect - I've read a lot on the war of the roses and I love how this story is intertwined with that. I wish the Library had the 3rd book, as I can't wait to read it.

    9. I liked the storybut I had to do a lot of skimming and speed reading as all the details of scenery is too much. I also don't like when the character's thoughts are the same repeated thought over and over. I don't mind skimming and speed reading though. I liked the time travel.
