    One thought on “Captive Rose”

    1. Wounded crusader Guy de Warrenne is held captive in Damascus and Leila Gervais assists in his care. When he finds out that she's Christian and manages to escape, he kidnaps her and brings her along with him. His only thought is that he's saving her from an infidel land and miserable fate. She begs to differ and wants to return to her home. But passions get in the way, as well as Guy's bad blood with Leila's Marcher lord brother, Roger. Guy has the friendship of new king Edward I, but that is no [...]

    2. "Soon he would be rumbling across a city swarming with soldiers in some sort of wagon with a drugged young woman who was none other than the sister of his worst enemy and the adopted daughter of the most renowned physician in the Arab Empire!"I'm not going to try and recap the storyline, you can get enough of that from the blurb. I'm just going to use a few quotes to reflect my reading experience. The story begins just prior to Edward Longshanks returning from crusade and being crowned king upon [...]

    3. Miriam Minger writes a romance with wonderful descriptions of Damacus and England, along with two main characters who are interesting in their own right. If you like exotic locations and a hero who is not afraid to admit his feelings, this book is for you. Guy, the hero is a prisoner in Damacus, Syria while fighting in the Crusades. He has been beaten and is being held for ransom. Lelia is a daughter of an English woman who was a slave and then became a third wife to an important healer/doctor. [...]

    4. Let me preface this review by saying that upon first sight of this book, I was biased against it because of mydislike of Fabio (the cover model for this edition). So it took me well over a year to actually want to read this book (and I solidly blamed Fabio for it). But after re-integrating myself into the world of Bodice Rippers recently (and I do love me some Bodice Rippers), I recalled that this particular book had been a gift from a wonderful, fellow Bodice Ripper-lover (and all-around Bodice [...]

    5. Oldie from 1991 resurrected as an ebook.Downloaded free for KindleGuy was the saving grace of this storyHeroine got annoying towards the end.Story dragged on about 50 pages too long.

    6. 4 stars simply for the enormous effort of writing a convincing, historical romance in today's day and age. The culture of the holy land, Syria in particular, very informative. Very spicy , nice !!The girl is a English born, brought up in a conservative Muslim household. No oppression, no regret of living away from her native land. She is a trained physician , looking forward to practicing medicine and marrying a Muslim relative. Sees her life cut out and set in front of her.Enter the hero , a va [...]

    7. The previous volume, Twin Passions was rather bad and typically I don't continue a series when that is true but this book was considerably better in writing, story and spelling.The Captive Bride's series caught my attention because the first was a Viking historical romance. I tend to like the Viking stories, though there aren't nearly as many as the Highland stories. However, this volume is about an English knight who discovers an English woman who was born in a Damascan Harem. See Leila's mothe [...]

    8. Guy's seemingly good intentions to honor Eve's request for him to smuggle her daughter, Leila, out of Damascus in order for her to be with others of Christian beliefs, quickly frustrated and sickened me. Although I'm all for freedom from oppression, the manner at which it was done ticked me off. Leila had no voice or control over the life she loved and was torn from. Guy's actions in Canterbury were detestable even though Leila relented to the pleasure. After making the journey successfully, the [...]

    9. 372pgs, With the sheer strength of his muscular body, Crusader Guy de Warenne overpowered his captors and fled the hell-hole of the Syrian prison. Yet he couldn 19t leave Damascus without rescuing the lovely violet-eyed 1Cslave girl 1D who had saved his life by tenderly caring for his battle wounds. Never did he imagine that his damsel in distress would become a hot-blooded temptress who would torment his days and nights with every move of her innocent young form.She is Leila, a raven-haired Eng [...]

    10. A beautiful romance between two persons from different world. As usual love overcomes all obstacles but this is not without difficulties. Leila is a beautiful woman raised in a different culture than her birth right. That she thrives under it is a proof that she is very determined and strong in her believes. Unfortunately her mother does not share her opinion on the state of things. I don't know how to feel about Eve. She wants what she thinks is best for her daughter but does so quite selfishly [...]

    11. I very much enjoyed this book. My soon to be husband bought me ten books at the local salvation army for $10. This was one of the books from his purchase. He knows how much I love to read and here where we live in parkersburg, wv we do not have a book store any more. Our local borders closed about a year ago. I can honestly say that this book is worth ten times more than the dollar he paid for it! It was so good I started reading it before bed and could not put it down untill I finished. I was u [...]

    12. When I first started to read this book I couldn't get into it, so I set it aside. After a few weeks I went back to it and was able to sink in. I've read almost all of Miriam Minger's books, I love her writing, but this one was not one I would classify as a must have, I would have given it 3.5 stars but the don't allow halves. The main character "Leila" in my opinion lacked the maturity a women who was an aprentice and was going to be a physician herself should have had.

    13. I had tears running down my face as I got further in the book. Eventually I was affraid it wasn't going to have a happy ending to I read the epilogue before I finished the book. I was soooo happy that it was a happy ending and they had twins. One thing though, why guy? Why did she have the main male character named Guy??? it just made reading it a little weird, but definately a good book! it holds your attention to the very last word.

    14. Meh It was a freeby on ITunes, glad I didn't buy it. It was sorta entertaining, but not much. Enjoyed the historical side of this story. It begins in Damascus during the crusades and was interesting to get a fictional glimpse into life in the mid-East may have been like, and then The main characters traveled through Europe to medieval England, but other than that-it was just sorta mindless.

    15. I actually got so bored with this book that I actually decided to put it down and give it a try a few days later. After picking it back up today, I realized that it is just too predictable. I could never fully get in to the correct time frame and over all decided to just flounce it.

    16. The book was entertaining enough, although sometimes a little predictable. At times the main character was a bit infuriatingly stubborn, but apart from that I enjoyed this quick read.
