This is the part of her that I would have loved to have seen in the first half versus foot stomping and running off into storms with no food, no horse, nothing.

A Dove At Midnight by Rexanne Becnel
I have always read romance novels and the Medieval period of history has fascinated me for as long as I can remember.
A Dove at Midnight is a wonderful Medieval romance which pits two strong characters against each other in a classic battle of fierce will and passionate emotion. I’m all about having control over my own destiny, but it seemed out of place that the heroine had such a modern mindset regarding a woman’s place in the world. As in many Medieval romances, there is a distinct difference in both the age and experience of the hero and heroine.

Swearing eternal vengeance against a royal enemy, Sir Rylan Kempe, Lord of Blaecston, had ridden out in search of the Lady Joanna heir to Oxwich Castle and the only woman who could help his worthy cause. The sin would be to resign yourself to that godforsaken priory!
Rylan Kemp is one of the Yorkshire noblemen who is up in arms against King John of Robinhood fame for undue taxation and other atrocities. She lived at the priory chiefly because of witnessing something horrible in her childhood that convinced her she did not want to be under the control of a man or anywhere near her cruel father.
I enjoyed the first half of the book, but in the second half Joanne just annoyed me. But not this time. Plus she also has her childhood trauma to deal with.
Of course, Joanna is anything but cooperative given her extreme aversion to marriage and men. She is far from the plain, biddabledemure nun wannabe he expected. So that’s the crux of the “big misunderstanding”. She shook her head, not wanting to admit her cause was so hopeless. I kept waiting for the fabulous Sir Hiss from the Disney Robin Hood befnel to make rexwnne appearance, but was sadly disappointed.
He suspects something sinister,but Joanna will not confide in him.
