    1. Very good, I love almost all of Shannon Drake's historical romance books. If you like the type of book where the hero is angry at the heroine for a while- you will love it!

    2. I don't seem to take to this writer's heroines. They always seem so impetuous and act like mother hens worrying about everyone else. *This review is for an ARC from the publisher on NetGalley.

    3. This version of The Lion in Glory is a 2016 re-release of a Scottish vs English historical romance previously published under the pen name Shannon Drake in 2003. If my research is accurate, it has been shortened from 560 pages to 356. Most people will likely consider that a positive thing since both are ample time to tell an intriguing tale.Starting off with the Scotts descending upon Hamstead Heath, an unwalled English fortress ,known for its prized horses, cattle, and sheep, expecting their tr [...]

    4. The Lion in Glory is the 5th book in the 'Clan Graham' series by Heather Graham. I haven't read any of the other books in the series, so can say that the book is easily read as a stand alone one. The story is set in the early 14th century. Robert Bruce King of the Scots is fighting to gain all of Scotland back from King Edward the 2nd of England. Some of the castles and lands in England's possession aren't afforded guards from their king, but they are expected to refuse the Bruce's demands for m [...]

    5. This was definitely a romance novel set in the early 14th century, rather than historical fiction with a touch of romance, so if you're picky about accuracy (view spoiler)[like timeframes for children being weaned, the care of horses and consistency with needlework skills (hide spoiler)] and anachronisms (view spoiler)[like the over-prevalence of books (hide spoiler)]irritate you, either switch off the validation part of your brain or put this book down right now.Robert Bruce has been crowned Ki [...]

    6. This is a shortened re-release of an older book. I liked the romance but the 3rd person POV jumped so much that I had difficulty following and it covered mostly thoughts rather than action which I found boring.

    7. This is a very good series

    8. I enjoyed the story, it was a good historical romance. It was interesting to learn about the 1300's and the English and Scott's being at war. The romance between Christina (being an English captive) and Jamie (being Scottish and her captor) was not your average romance. But in the end Love conquers all. This book can be read without having read the previous ones in the series. I didn't realize it was the 5th book in a series until I finished.

    9. I was given this by the most Scottish person I know - who thought I might enjoy it. It's not only a fun read, but gave me an understanding of the Scottish / English tensions of that time period. An enjoyable page turner.

    10. A detail rich ride through historyMy second historical romance for the week is The Lion in Glory. I didn't immediately realize that this is in fact, a re-release. The original was published under the pen name Shannon Drake. Back in the day, Shannon Drake was one of my for sure go to's for medieval historical romance. The books are full of adventure, battles, historical detail and pageantry. On the other hand, back in the day, books written under Heather Graham's name were contemporary or paranor [...]

    11. The Lion In Glory "A Graham Novel" by Heather Graham /Shannon Drake. *2016 version. A re-release with a new cover, from the previously released version in 2003. Also has been shortened*.Well written, steady paced, Scottish vs English Historical Romance set in the 16th century. A Graham Novel. I've never read these before. The heroine is hard to like and sometimes difficult to connect with, due to her "my way or no way" attitude. She believes her way is right and the better way, no matter the con [...]

    12. This was my first time reading a book in the Graham Clan series though the author set it up in a way that I could follow along easily without feeling that I'm missing a lot by not starting from the beginning. This story takes place in the time of Robert the Bruce when he was a force not to be messed with and many of the English were paying tribute to him.Christina is an Englishwoman who is desperate to find a way to get her brother back, including trying to drug a group of Bruce's men, who is a [...]

    13. I remember reading this book many years ago when it was released under Heather Graham' s alter ego, Shannon Drake. I did not remember much of the story, but remember devouring all of her books. They are a good part of the reason why I love this genre. The setting is after King Edward I dies, having laid waste to much of Scotland. His successor is not the hard warrior Edward I was and so Scotland under Robert the Bruce is taking back its country. Now the English border areas are paying tribute to [...]

    14. This compelling historical fiction novel takes place in England during the 1300s.Lady Christina Steel of Hamstead Manor was beside herself. Sir James Graham, the emissary for the king of Scotland, was at her door. It was time to pay, to keep peace. King Edward would never allow such a thing to happen, but King Edward was gone, and his son now reigned. King Edward II was not the strong, ruthless leader that his father once was, but he did possess a cruel streak. He was also subject to immature ta [...]

    16. This was a pretty good read which I enjoyed by Heather Graham/Shannon Drake. The author is a story teller of many novels. This one told about a woman who only wanted to live her life, but circumstances have made her take her fate in her hands. Lady Christina needs the help of the warrior who has taken over her lands. Her brother has been taken hostage by the English King for treason. She will do anything to accomplish her goals. She gets Jamie Graham who has seized the lands she has called home, [...]

    17. A rerelease of an early Heather Graham historical romance, The Lion in Glory, while strong in historical content, suffers from the same maladies as many of the tales from this time period. Issue #1: the hero is generally unlikeable for much of the story, particularly in the way he treats the heroine. She is treated like the stereotypical helpless/treacherous beauty (while she is emphatically NOT, written overall as a strong, admirably feisty character). Issue #2: while Christina is portrayed as [...]

    18. I have read just about every Heather Graham books ever written. If I read this book it’s been awhile since I picked it up. This book was pretty interesting. The Lion In Glory is an historical romance set back when England in Scotland were at odds with each other. But then again when aren’t they at odds. However, this time it’s the Scots that has the upper hand and now that the tables are turned the Scottish are looking for a little pay back. The form of payback is basically what we call pr [...]

    19. Buy and read.The only negative I can say is there are some areas that are padded in writing and should of maybe been edited. It felt like duplicates or the same thing said but in a different way.Now for the review. I loved the book. It touched my emotions and made me think and I admit be very glad I was not there during those hard times. The writing is clear and the characters are strong. It held my attention and kept me reading. I think it is a good read, perhaps due to some slight problems not [...]

    20. 3.5 starsFirstly this is re-release, there was no comment about that so I was thrown a bit. I knew I'd read the story and kept thinking the author had stolen someone else's work. No just re-releasing.I loved the character of Jamie, he was great. I wasn't that keen on the heroine, she fussed a lot and was slightly annoying. I kind of felt that this was between a romance and a historical romance - not one or the other, but if you just like romance that won't bother you. It's less strong in the his [...]

    21. Shanon Drake does more than bring characters together in a book. She tells believable stories without romancing the past. Her characters make sound judgment true to the character's beliefs, ideals, and feelings, and while it may not be the ideal, it certainy calls for some very dramatic scenes! Christina and Jamie are both very strong characters. Thier pride, very cliche, stands in the way of what they really feel and want to say. Of course we see throughout the entire book that attraction and l [...]

    23. 3.5 stars 'The Lion In Glory' by Heather Graham is book five in the "Graham Clan" series. This book was first released in 2003 under the name Heather Graham pin name of Shannon Drake. I was glad to see this book come back into circulation with the new cover and giving me the chance to read this book this time around. This was pretty much a traditional Highlander romance with some dram thrown in. This story kept you involved in their story. The hero was of course was a true hot highlander. The he [...]

    24. 4 stars. What I love about this book: 1- Sir Jamie Graham is a likable character, and a familiar one if you've read the earlier Graham novel 'Knight Triumphant' - he is Sir Eric's lute-playing cousin. We see castle Langley again and a lot of the people in KT, including the horses! 2- it's cool to have a female (Lady Christina ) as an accomplished swordsman, although she can embroider as well 3-King Robert the Bruce is a compelling historical figure and appears throughout the book. Highly recomme [...]

    25. I liked Christina and I thought for the time period she was a very progressive heroine. Battling the invading Scots, fighting for her brother's life, saving her brother's fiancé's virtue She wasn't always correct in the means to achieving her goal but she tried. What she suffered from was being in the wrong damn century. All her actions caused her was pain and humiliation. I mean the poor girl couldn't get one up on the hero. Who just seemed like a jackass but really all he suffered from was be [...]

    26. Has some interesting writing, and it's an interesting topic, but the story gets very, very repetitive. And not just the story, but literally, the lines get repeated over and over again. The same thing, give or take, without changing the sentences or sentence structures. Sometimes there are entire repeated paragraphs just phrased a tiny bit differently. Definitely padded and padded and padded to get to a 500-page mark. I could have easily lopped off half the book in editing. Had I not been sittin [...]

    27. I loved this book. It was the perfect mixture of realism in a dark time and historical romance. She understands the nature of the issues between England and Scotland and has an excellent undertaking of how this shaped the historical figures. The pace of the story was good. Heather Graham really knows how to set up the scene and tell the story. I was very engrossed in this story. I plan on reading other novels by her in the near future.

    28. I thought it was well-written. I don't read that many romance novels but it was obviously well-researched. The only thing I had a problem with was that it didn't feel like a quick read. I found, a few times, that I had to go to the Chronological notes at the end or reread a place where it was mostly history, instead of story, if that makes any sense.

    29. Enjoyable historical romance. Jamie Graham has come to seize Hamstead Heath and is surprised when Christina, the manor’s chatelaine demands she be held hostage and ransomed. Christina only focus is to rescue her brother and will do anything to do it, even being taken hostage. I liked the characters and the historical information and the story flowed seamlessly. I really liked it.

    30. I enjoyed this book but it was hard to understand the relationship between the two charters. It was like the main character's failed to communicate only argue so it was hard to understand how they even hooked up.
