The friends of Abrielle were one-dimensional and their side stories told as almost an afterthought and not worth inclusion in the novel. Net rated it liked it. The story seemed to drag on and I was hoping for more romance then action, but as I stated above, it’s an easy rea This book was a lighthearted tale of Medieval times where traditions were strong and power led to greed.

I hate when details are mentioned and then never referred to again. Mar 19, Linda Wallace rated it it was ok. For whatever reason her last few books just didn’t pay off like her earlier ones did. At age 16, she met U. Woodiwiss first published her seminal book, The Flame and the Floweryou can still feel the influences today when you pick up romance novels just published.

The heroine of this book was one of the most irritating and unlikable that I have ever read. I just love this book, haven’t read it in years but when I saw it was available as a kindle edition at my library I was thrilled!!!


With so many antagonists in their midst, Abrielle should have been under heavy guard. Rather than follow the advice of the rejection letters and rewrite the novel, she instead submitted kathlesn to paperback publishers. Se non ci fosse stato il nome della Woodiwiss sulla copertina, non l’avrei nemmeno finito, l’ho fatto solo per rispetto della sua luminosa carriera.

Colorado kathlfen Barbara Samuel is the author of several historical romances. It is not only a romance but a story of a fretting girl with a worried mother and protective step father who only want her to be happy.

Book review: Kathleen E. Woodiwiss’s *Everlasting *

I’m still drawn to her books and after reading this one have considered going back and rereading some others. Compared to other historicals, this one just wasn’t as good, but it was still enjoyable.

But when her stepfather—respected for his courage and valor during the Crusades—is denied his rightful title and the wealth that accompanies it, Abrielle finds herself suddenly disgraced, no longer a suitable match for any proper gentleman.

Woodiwiss redefined the historical romance genre, and every single book of hers I’ve read has become and instant favorite.

It has been awhile since I even touched a romance novel, but I couldn’t resist. To ask other readers questions about Everlastingplease sign up.

She was a winner and will miss her in the literary world! Abrielle has seemingly lost everything, her stepfather was shunned by the king for his bravery in the crusades and her finacee died tragically from a fall that is a questionable accident.


The novel sold over 2. She was survived by two sons, Sean and Heath, their wives, and everlastting grandchildren. And, worse, in order to save kathlwen family from ruin, she agrees to wed the evil and ugly Desmond de Marle who has lusted after her even before her betrothed was mysteriously killed.

And the kidnapping scenario made me want to roll my eyes. The setting, the prologue were promising, it’s Medieval times, I love that period of the history, I liked the name of the main character, but only that. It’s amazing he is so driven to succeed when she is nasty to only him when he never did anything wrong.

Everlaeting is drawn to her and knows he will eventually win her over but you don’t really feel a connection between them. It just made me want to shake Abrielle.


Tampoco la testarudez mostrada en todo momento hacia Raven. It was actually getting tedious. Raven SeabernAbrielle.

Dashing, handsome, tall, and kind—a black-haired Scotsman with vivid blue eyes—Raven Seabern is an emissary for his king, and quite unlike any man Abrielle has ever encountered. I’m glad her family allowed it to be released.
