    One thought on “The Crusader's Kiss”

    1. Young Bartholomew, who recently earned his spurs and was a squire at the beginning of the Champions of Saint Euphemia series, has learned honor at the feet of brave and righteous Templar knights. He fought in Jerusalem and was a man at arms in all but name. He was utterly devoted to Gaston, the French hero from book one. So I was very, very surprised when Bartholomew's story took us to northern England with a variation of the Robin Hood and Maid Marian tale. It was an exciting, new twist to a fa [...]

    2. Claire Delacroix created another story I could lose myself in with The Crusader's Kiss. This was the third novel in The Champions of Saint Euphemia series. While it is helpful to have background knowledge of the characters and the relic, overall, I believe if you understand how the series is put together, you could read this book as a standalone.This tale is about Bartholomew, the squire of Gaston (Book 1), who was recently knighted. In the first two books of the series, I really didn't get a go [...]

    3. With each book I read from this series I think it is better than the last. Truth is, every one of them are outstanding. Each book could be stand-alone reads but I would recommend beginning with "The Crusader's Bride" since it is the very beginning of each Knight's journey.This book was Bartholomew's story. He leaves the Knight in book 1 after being knighted himself to travel to the castle of his birth. He is the rightful heir but the castle was taken over years prior by a spiteful neighbor. Bart [...]

    4. The Crusader’s Kiss by Claire DelacroixClaire’s wonderful third in her Champions of St. Euphemia series is about loss, treachery and reclamations. Its stars a foe to lovers, ill-fated couple a potty mouthed, thieving by necessity heroine and an honorable, without reproach knight who have great chemistry and witty repartees. Her period perfect dialogue delivers an exquisite era fact-packed tale that gives readers a genuine peek into the past, character catch-ups and sweeping vistas. The inten [...]

    5. 4.5 stars.Yet another excellent installment in this series!I have been looking forward to Bartholomew's story since the first book. He seemed much older and much more mature in this book than he did in the previous books. He has such a good heart and is really a wonderful hero. In fact he is so honorable that I found it almost impossible to believe that he would agree to do what he agreed to with Lady Marie - that he would even agree to it in the first place knocked my rating down by 1/2 a star. [...]

    6. This was a well-written, entertaining book. A medieval romance, Bartholomew is a knight returning from Jerusalem to avenge his parents and reclaim his holding. Anna is seeking justice and isn't really concerned about the law. They meet in conflict, and warily decide to work together for a period of time. They find themselves drawn towards each other. It was so much fun to read about their journey together and I was sorry to see the story come to an end! This book can be read as a standalone, tho [...]

    7. I absolutely loved this installment in the series. Each story reveals more and more about the people and their histories. This story really comes to life with Ms. Delacroix's vivid descriptions and wonderful character development. After each story I'm excited to read the next and find out more about the cast of characters. Wonderfully written and filled with enough intrigue and suspense to keep you turning the pages. The copy was gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    8. The knights guarding the St Euphemia reliquary continue their journey but lose the prize to thieves. This book is full of action, adventure and surprises. I do love how Ms Delacroix weaves her stories!
