Sinossi

A Common Lady
For years she had thought he was dead. Yet when Addis de Valence strode into Moira Falkner's cottage, there was no mistaking the sharp planes of his face, and the scar she herself had helped to heal. The young squire who had once been her hero was now her lord, a hardened man who returned to claim the son she had raised as her own. But Moira couldn't deny that Addis roused a passion she never thought to feel--and a perilous hope for a future that could never be....

An Uncommon Love
Addis returned from the Crusades to find his lands usurped by his stepbrother, and his country on the brink of rebellion. Determined to reclaim his birthright, Addis could not afford to be distracted by a woman--even one as tempting as Moira. Yet the only living part of his contented past lay in Moira--and his desire for her was more dangerous than his deadly battles with the king's men. By law, Moira belonged to him...but possessing her heart might be far more difficult.

Like many reviewers, I read Madeline Hunter's first historical, By Arrangement. I really enjoyed that book and looked forward to the next two books - By Possession is the first of the two, and is truly exceptional. Ms. Hunter does her research on the period, so the political and social backdrop is realistic. But more importantly, she creates characters that we (as 21st century readers) can relate to, but are not 21st century people. I know that sounds rather convoluted...I've read a lot of medievals in the last few months, and many have characters that are quite contemporary. Moira and Addis seem to be very much a product of their times - which means you may not like how they act all the time (especially Addis), but it makes for a more realistic story. I actually wondered (at points) how the book would end - and lets face it, you rarely do have questions about how romance stories are going to end, do you? Ultimately, the story was incredibly powerful. Addis and Moira create such a synergy. I look forward to the next book, By Design, where we get to see how things turn out for Rhys, a character that was introduced in this book. This book is a great read!

5.0 su 5 stelle Entranced from cover to cover... 28 settembre 2000
Di Julianne - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I've been waiting patiently for the release of BY POSSESSION after I read BY ARRANGEMENT and the wait has been worth it. (Only if all waiting have this kind of reward!) Madeline Hunter has to be this year's best new writer. Her writing is compelling, strong and very heartfelt. This is not one of those easy-going, lighthearted romance novels. It's brutal sometimes, it's painful to read at times and it's full of excitement. And, it's one of those books where you just have to stop and close your eyes to savor the moment.
Madeline Hunter is trying to corner the noble-born & commoner love story market and I think she is doing that rather well. The 14th century was never so romantic with a story of a knight and a bondwoman truly in love. Addis de Valence and Moira Falkner make what seems like an impossible relationship work. After all, she is the daughter of a bondwoman and he is a knight who's just returned from the Baltic crusades... who has also been presumed dead for the past 6 years. Of course, there is the bit about his ancestral home, Barrowburgh, which is Addis' by right, is over taken by the greedy and cowardly stepbrother in his absence. And while the country is in turmoil because of a weak king, Addis fights for the home that is his and a woman that makes him feel at peace. She fully realizes the consequences of loving this man, who owns her. And knows that she will lose her chance of a good marriage if she does. Her mind might be fighting against their relationship but her heart is saying something completely different. And I can't say much more because I'm going to be giving the plot away. Wow... this was a good book. I loved every part of it.s
Now, only if 2001 comes a little faster... BY DESIGN seems like another winner.

5.0 su 5 stelle A love that knows no bounds 30 gennaio 2001
Di C. M. Chen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
When Addis de Valence returned to England from years of slavery, it was to find his birthright usurped and his son being cared for by his late wife's friend. Moira is a bondwoman who claims Claire's father gave her and her mother their freedom prior to his death. Drawn to Moira for her generous heart and the link she represents to the past, Addis refuses to accept her claim for liberty. Initially Moira decides to let Addis have his way for the sake of his son, whom she raised as her own. When it becomes clear, however, that Addis will never let her go, Moira must decide whether she should yield to the love she bears him or hold onto her pride which demands her freedom.
Madeline Hunter has written an emotionally powerful story about a man who returns home to find all is not as it should be. His one ray of hope is Moira whose love has helped him more than he knows. Addis is determined to reclaim his place as the lord of Barrowburgh and Moira is willing to help. She knows, however, that she will pay a heavy price for the love she bears him, but she refuses to let history repeat itself by serving as Addis's leman no matter how great his need for her. Moira is perhaps the strongest part of this story because she is forced to endure so much. And yet, she is never a victim. All she does for Addis to help him is done in the hopes that she will eventually realize her own freedom though her heart will always be tied to Addis through the years they shared as children. Hunter also successfully integrates a plot of political intrigue as a means for Addis to reclaim his title. In addition, Addis proves to be a hero in the end. When he first appears, though he understands Moira's plight, he refuses to sympathize. But as his attraction for her deepens into love, he belatedly comes to relate to her feelings on the issue of individual freedom. This is a wonderful story filled again with rich, historical detail and the flavor of this period really stands out through Hunter's incredible use of perspective.

4.0 su 5 stelle This one is a B+ for me! 13 settembre 2000
Di Laurie Gold - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
As a romance reader with "peasant" tastes, I looked forward to reading By Possession, the second in a trilogy of stand-alone medieval romances with some trepidation. The reviewer who raved about the first title (By Arrangement) at the site I publish, All About Romance, has far more sophisticated romance taste buds than I - what if I wasn't "up" to the book? Well, that worry was for naught; author Hunter makes 14th century England come alive in a manner few authors have done for me. For all the historical richness of the story, the romantic aspect is never lost, and the poignancy of the seemingly untenable love between scarred knight Addis de Valence and serf-born Moira Falkner is truly touching. By Possession is a medieval romance brimming with romance, intrigue, and excitement. It should well satisfy not only readers who demand a high level of historical accuracy, but readers who look to historical romance to learn about history.

5.0 su 5 stelle Another Winning Medieval Romance 8 settembre 2000
Di Jean Mason - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Madeline Hunter's second book shows that BY ARRANGEMENT was no fluke. Her new romance contains the same strong characterizations, accurate historical setting, interesting plot, and marvelous love scenes that made the first book one of the most widely praised first novels in a long time.
Addis de Valence arrives home after an eight year absence to find the world he once knew completely gone. His father is dead; his estates have been seized by his step brother with the approval of the weak King Edward II; his wife is dead; and her son is missing. But these are all outward changes. The greatest alteration lies within Addis' soul. For four long years, he had been a slave of the pagan Lithuanians, having been captured while on a crusade with the Teutonic Knights. Addis can no longer see the world as he once did, can no longer feel that he belongs.
Indeed, only in the presence of Moira Falconer, once his wife's maid and now a widow twice over, does Addis enjoy a strange sense of peace. Moira's mother was the serf-born leman of Addis' father-in-law and she herself was born a serf. She claims that she was set free at her master's death, but Addis refuses to believe her. Something deep inside him needs this woman who is linked to his past. Moira had loved Addis from the shadows but she will not be his mistress. She knows too well the slights such women suffer.
This, then, is a story of two people from vastly different social classes whose love cannot be. But it is more as well. It is a tale of the political intrigues that led to the downfall of the unhappy Edward II. It is a portrayal of English life in the early 14th century. And it is the story of a man who is forever changed by his experiences who must forge anew his sense of self.
Read BY POSSESSION for the wonderful love story, but read it also to see a perfect melding of historical detail into a romance.

So easy to misunderstand the meaning of passion. A woman's soul yearned to do so. Men had probably exploited that since time began. &quote;
