Gentle Warrior – Julie Garwood

Julie Garwood. Gentle Warrior. (New York: Pocket Books, 1985). 0671726986.

Main Characters: Elizabeth Montwright and Geoffrey Berkley.

Description of the book:

In feudal England, Elizabeth Montwright barely escaped the massacre that destroyed her family and exiled her from her ancestral castle. Bent on revenge, disguised as a peasant, she rode again through the fortress gates . . to seek aid from Geoffrey Berkley, the powerful baron who had routed the murderers.

He heard her pleas, resisted her demands, and vowed to seduce his beautiful subject. Yet as Elizabeth fought the warrior’s caresses, love flamed for this gallant man who must soon champion her cause . . . and capture her spirited heart!

My Thoughts

I really like the characters of Elizabeth and Geoffrey. However, the feudal period is not my favorite time periods – and as such, this isn’t a book that I read as often as Julie Garwood’s other historicals. My favorite character might be Elizabeth’s Saxon grandfather Elslow – who I think steals the book.
