Bitterness from a past rejection has shaped him into the callous man he is. His self worth took a beating at the hands of a woman. Lyonene is a beauty, an innocent who quickly wins his heart and brings laughter to this hardened man.
The chemistry sizzles and Ranulf is amazed at his response to her. After only a few days spent together they are betrothed. Shortly after, Ranulf must return to his home. While there, the doubts and insecurities start to plague him, and by the time he returns for the wedding, Lyonene encounters a stranger, one who is harsh and brutal.
This story is filled with jealousy, angst and even though you must be able to suspend disbelief along with a fair amount of cheesiness, I still found this to be one of my all time favorites. This is an older written book, I believe ? There are no explicitly written sex scenes and no deeply written historical content.
Many of the character's thoughts and actions are as they would be for the time period. Women are treated harshly and this is portrayed in the story. I first read this many years ago. I immediately fell in Love with Deveraux's writing. This is the prequel to her Montgomery Series and their Taggert cousins. Deveraux has given me many hours of pleasure with her books.

What started off as a sweet and intriguing love at first sight romance quickly devolved into a melodramatic absurdity featuring a naive doormat of a heroine and an irrationally angry, and I dare say abusive, hero.

I hate to say it, but I don't think she'll top mine. I read this book three weeks ago, and have forgotten most of it already.
Hate to say that, but it's true, and I'm guessing that means that I should have read these books a very long time ago like most people. Maybe I'd have appreciated them more.

As it is, the thing I remember most is that the Black Lyon is not shy about abusing the heroine.
A sign of the times, I know, but it was still a standout couple of moments, and not very endearing that he did it so casually. Thing is, I can usually just accept a moment or two like that in HR because I know that's how it really was back then.
The Black Lyon
If rape is a trigger for you, don't read this book! Once on their wedding night, and once again a few days later. It was too blatant for me. No shades of gray here JD's writing definitely feels dated.
Aside from the obvious bodice ripper themes, the heroine had that too-innocent thing going on. Now, I've never lived in the Dark Ages, but I'm assuming that people had to grow up fast back then, and her uber innocence didn't feel genuine.

I think that this use of a naive heroine goes sort of hand in hand with the age in which this was written, so I did expect it to a certain extent, but I've also read it much better done.

It drew me in immediately from their first meeting. Ranulf, the Black Lyon, named for his fierce look and black features, is a feared warrior and English Earl that never smiles or laughs.
Lyonene perfect name for his lioness is just as strong. She is a baron's daughter, even though she has been protected and sheltered by her family she is happy, darin Loved it- it was my kind of thing, fast moving, strong characters, alpha male, passionate love, jealousy that tears them apart, a perfect match.
She is a baron's daughter, even though she has been protected and sheltered by her family she is happy, daring and fearless AND she makes the Lyon laugh. Their love story in the beginning is so sweet. I love how Lyonene's mother plots to bring them together as she recognizes the strong character and honor of the Black Lyon hidden behind his gruff exterior as the perfect match for her wild and free daughter.
Their attraction is so strong that Lyonene throws herself at the Lyon and he fights her off to protect her virtue.
They are betrothed after two days even though she is below his station- he wants her. Then the Lyon leaves for 3 weeks and thinks too much which causes too much trouble. She anxiously waits everyday dreaming about him, their wedding, and future and he returns a different person. He treats her horrible and shows her no love or tenderness in his return all because of remembering his previous marriage that broke and hardened his heart.
His jealousy is over the top and because of a set up by a jealous previous suitor of Lyonene he is brutal to her and wants no love from her. She fights him every step of the way, never backing down even though she fears him. I love how she fights to find the love and connection they had when they first met especially with all obstacles put between them.
It really is a beautiful love story. View all 5 comments. Feb 14, Chelsey rated it did not like it Shelves: I thought that I might have liked it because it seemed like a nice medieval romance. Not the case! I found the heroine to come across like a giggling teenager of about 13 whilst the hero came across as an extremely abusive man and a complete jerk. Not to mention two rape scenes, potential affair and multiple cases of abuse towards the heroine due to paranoia the word jealousy is too subtle for the hero's behaviour.
I probably shouldn't call him a hero either he was more a villain, or at least had a multiple personality disorder. It obviously must get better due to the good reviews I saw on here, but I could not tough it out! Considered the first book in Jude Deveraux's Montgomery series but reads as a stand-alone. Set in Medieval times. Ranulf is a great warrior who meets the gentle and beautiful Lyonene and is betrothed very quickly.
Beautiful beauty tames the beast story. An old favorite. One that has stood the test of time for me. Ranulf is an alpha jerk but I couldn't help but love him. View all 3 comments. Excellent period detail and vocabulary I read the kindle edition. Sometimes or often when old Skool historical romances are retroactively converted to eFormat, the author do some "fixing" to the text to bring the book in line with 21st C sensibilities. I am happy to say that is not the case here.
The eEdition of this book is in tact with all of it's old Skool, un-politically correct charms. I liked the hero and heroine for most of the book. There was a part of the story where things got really st Excellent period detail and vocabulary I read the kindle edition. I guess I'd say the overriding theme of this love story is a lengthy process for the hero and heroine to learn to trust each other as a married couple as they hadn't known each other but a day or two before they became betrothed.
Because of the very short duration that the couple had known each other, some of their misunderstandings seem possibly logical but YMMV.
Also, the Medieval period detail was to die for as well and is what I live for. If this book were written today, I think the editor would force the author to remove these details of Medieval life. More is the pity.
Betty rated it did not like it Aug 13, Dec 26, Daneesha rated it it was ok. This book was written like it may have been one of the author's first books. It was kind of choppy and lacked flowing details. I don't know that I really got a clear picture in my head while reading.
The hero Ranulf sucked in a major way. I understand many medieval heroes are pigheaded and are given lethal names because of their warrior prowess. This guy was not only insanely jealous, but he actually slaps the heroine. I don't think I liked that. He and Lyonene our fair heroine fall in love tw This book was written like it may have been one of the author's first books. He and Lyonene our fair heroine fall in love two days after meeting. Then, the ghost of Ranulf's first wife, who was conveniently horrible to him, intervenes in a big way.
So much so, that he somewhat rapes his heroine on their wedding night because he doesn't believe that she is a virgin. Um, hello! So begins their struggle to find happiness. I don't think they are ever really happy until the last page. The heroine Lyonene was too weak for my tastes. She allowed herself to be tricked and walked all over. Lyonene allowed some jealous chick to come into her house and drive her out of it!
No way! I have read other books by this author and enjoyed them. This wasn't one of them. View 1 comment. So far he raped her twice, one time while he was drunk and doesn't even recall it.. Then he smacks her face to shut her up her lips were cut and started bleeding when she mentions the name of her male childhood friend that he thought was her lover..
Am I suppose to like the hero? I can't believe that after all this, she runs after him! I don't know why I finished reading this novel. Read the following quotations if you're still not convinced: He leaned his head back again So far he raped her twice, one time while he was drunk and doesn't even recall it.. He leaned his head back against the tub. He dropped her abruptly and winked at the staring Brent. You are a slug compared to her. View 2 comments. Very few times you come across books that leave a lasting impact.
For me The Black Lyon was such a book. I remember reading it as a young kid- and adoring it then. Soon I got sidetracked by other books and completely forgot the name of the book.
Recently I asked about it in a group from the scenes I remembered and was instantly reminded of it. It was time for a reread. This is the story of Ranulf and Lyonene. How the misgivings of the past shape your present and future.
When the acclaimed warrior Lion Very few times you come across books that leave a lasting impact. When the acclaimed warrior Lion stops at Lyonene's house, who is a baron's daughter- sparks instantly fly.
They are smitten by one another and the match is encouraged by their relatives. Soon they get married, but the shadow of their insecurities plague their vows and they are tested through difficult times.
I really liked the angst and passion between the main couple. Both were insanely jealous and insecure- and thought that got cumbersome at one point- still the tender love scenes made up for it.
Possible pet peeves view spoiler [ This was a bodice ripper The first two times the sex is basically rape She's 17 and he's older I DO NOT mind this in historicals The hero slaps the heroine after he thinks she cheated on him and her lips are bloodied The heroine doubts the hero when a villain convinces her she's pregnant and leaves him whiles she's pregnant too Both have trust issues We later come to know Ranulf knows it was Lyonene all along in the tent- but it's hinted he might have cheated if it wasn't her??
I'm not sure about it! They had issues, yet they shared many laughs and tender moments. Also, to be mentioned- historical insta love! Many side characters to love, equally many to loathe. This reread of wild romance between Lion and His Lioness leaves me happy. Lyonene is the most stupid heroine history has ever created…Throughout the book I was pulling my hair like a mad-woman, I fear Beauty Salons will refuse to let me step in their salon let alone re-style my hair… I have read some great reviews about this book but I must say that I am terribly disappointed with this one.

The only thing interesting in this book is the language and dialogues and nothing more. The story is CRAP. You have Lyonene who falls in love with Ranulf and are betrothed. Before Lyonene is the most stupid heroine history has ever created…Throughout the book I was pulling my hair like a mad-woman, I fear Beauty Salons will refuse to let me step in their salon let alone re-style my hair… I have read some great reviews about this book but I must say that I am terribly disappointed with this one.
Before the betrothal they are both happy and sincerely want to marry each other. Then after the betrothal, Ranulf starts thinking of the betrayal of his ex-wife and thinks that all women are the same and thus, Lyonene is cheating on her. When she disguised herself as a dancer and danced in front of Ranulf, Ranulf starts kissing and caressing her all the time believing that she is a dancer and not his wife.
After all this she still loves her husband and is ready to dies for her and all about the dance is forgotten. Then the worst part, when Amicia arrives; during her first meeting with Amicia she knows that is a vile woman and has got poisonous intention.

Damn he was bordering on sick-ass stalker syndrome. Her pink tongue darted out, sweeping over her lips then disappearing. Still I loved both the hero and the heroine can't re This is the first book I've read by Jude Deveraux and I really liked it.
He wrapped his hands around her waist. The guy is an angry, anxsty man, because of his deceitful, unfaithful first wife and unable to let himself believe how much a good woman stands before him- until she sacrifices her life for him.
I could never tell how much time passed until it was spelled out for me. But Ginny spoke first.
