Reading about Tearle slowly winning over Zared was a very enjoyable experience. As a lover of the 1st Peregrine book The Taming I very much enjoyed checking back in on Zared, Rogan, Liana, and Severn. I liked the mystery in the book that focused on the Peregrine and Howard family feud. There was good subplots going on with Severn and Anne. Tearle and Zared had plenty of adventures and obstacles to overcome. A really good conclusion to the Peregrine family story. Maybe one day we will read about some descendants? ( )

An old book. A bit more entertaining now than the first several time I read it. ( )

Heavily erotic and not especially historical. Less humor and imagination than in her time-shifting fantasy A Knight in Shining Armor which I enjoyed. ( )

An arrogant brat of a girl-woman abuses the genuine if inexplicable love of a good man -- all because she refuses to think for herself or stand up to her family. In other words, this is an annoying book, one that will leave you with a headache from rolling your eyes so much. If you haven't already guessed, the heroine of this particular story is a sniveling waste of ink, and there's no getting past that. ( )

No matter how honorable my intentions, I just can't seem to avoid the paranormal. I sat down today with every intention of reading a historical romance. Historical. Romance. Not a mention of vampires or werewolves or shifters (oh my!), not even a witch in sight of the back cover blurb. This was my literary effort to expand my boundaries. I didn't account for ghosts, though.

Book description
Lovely 17-year-old Zared Peregrine is the pride of her family, a treasure her rough-hewn brothers, Rogan and Severn, will strive at any cost to protect from their ancient enemies, the Howards. The Peregrines have suffered loss enough in this blood feud --- their mother, father, four other brothers, and very nearly Liana, Rogan's wife. Fearing they may lose their beloved little sister as well, Rogan and Severn train Zared in the arts of war and dress her in boys' clothing --- but refuse to allow her to venture outside their fortress alone. So no one knows that they youngest Peregrine is a girl. Yet when the magnificent knight Tearle Howard returns from a lengthy sojourn in France, it takes him but a glance to realize that Zared is most definitely female --- and beautiful. Handsome, dark-eyed Tearle knows he wants Zared from the moment he sees her. And Zared, foolishly, makes his conquest simple: a girl raised with a sword in her hand is not easily sequestered behind castle walls. So as the enmity between their families rages on, Tearle mounts a bold campaign to win the ravishing spitfire's heart --- and save her from the dark feud that threatens Zared's life.
