    1. This book was a rich and fascinating rendering of university culture. I totally became immersed in it. The characters were three dimensional and believably rendered - especially considering that the heroine has to pull off the disguised as a man trope and the hero is an academic, unusual for historical romance!The romance was deeply emotional and sensual. I loved where this book went and extra kudos for the unique academic setting and depiction of city life.


    2. Rated 3.5 on the blog.The cover and the blurb really depicted something different in my mind before I started delving into this interesting read.I really have no other word to describe it other than interesting. Maybe unique? Even a little odd? This doesn't have a true typical trope that defines it, but rather loosely pulls on others, keeping the plot line and characters just shy of typical.For one, the heroine is described as a 'tom boy', loathing dresses and the compartmentalization of a women [...]


    3. Jane de Weston is sick of life as a woman. She wants nothing more than to have the freedom that men have. Never been very womanly she always felt as it would have been better had she been born a man. During the birth of her sister's child Jane keeps making mistakes, panics, and flees the manor. Disguised as a boy she intends to go to Cambridge and study to become a clerk in the kings court. On the way to there she runs into a "northerner" man. The man falls for her disguise as "John" and offers [...]


    4. "L'indomani Jane allattò i figli attaccandoli ognuno ad un seno mentre Duncan, accanto al letto, strimpellava con la cetra accomodata. Lo strumento, al pari di lui, era stato maltrattato, ma poteva ancora essere utile" Duncan non riusciva più a pizzicare le corde, ma con pazienza otteneva qualche accordo per canzoni che Jeanne riconosceva e che intonavano insieme: Corichiamoci insieme Lascia che io ti possieda per sempre. Amiamoci l'un l'altro sino a quando ci rimarrà fiato. Un rosa medievale [...]


    5. I really enjoyed this book, the first of Blythe Gifford's that I've read. I liked that there was so much thoughtfulness in this story--it wasn't just a silly girl-dresses-like-boy-to-get-her-man book. Jane has truly got to face some inner demons to get comfortable with herself. She learns to fight for what she wants and needs and she learns well what true love is. Besides all that, it's just a fun read!


    6. How come this rating scale doesn't go below 1? I could not get into the Medieval times setting and the fact that the heroine/romantic interest was under 18 was a HUGE problem.



    7. 1.5/5C'est mon deuxième essais avec un bouquin de cette auteure et elle me convainc toujours pas. Elle en est même très loinJe me suis ennuyée en lisant ce livre. L'histoire est à peine crédible, la romance est surfaite, les scènes de sexes lamentables de retenus et les propos misogyne, même si ils sont soit disant "d'époque", restent franchement choquants. N'oublions pas non plus que l'héroïne n'a que 17 ansEt que dire de cette fin des plus conventionnelles ? A quoi bon nous vendre u [...]


    8. 1.5 stars. It was an okay story, if somewhat boring. Bland narration and poor description. I don't get a feel for setting or have any idea what it's like there. I know it's set in medieval times, but the author put no effort into the setting, aside from telling us we're in Cambridge. Right. I've never been to or seen medieval Cambridge. You have to tell me more than that.  I've read enough good writing and excellent description to know not to settle for less.Very confusing beginning. Who is the [...]


    9. Cette romance historique se situe en Angleterre au XIVème siècle. Cela se passe sur une année de 1388 à 1389.Jane ne veut pas être une femme car les femmes ne sont pas libres et elles dépendent forcément de la volonté d’un homme. Alors elle décide de se faire passer pour un homme afin de pouvoir étudier à Cambridge.Elle est du Sud de l’Angleterre. Elle va faire la connaissance de Duncan un anglais du Nord avec ses a priori sur les femmes comme tous les hommes de cette époque.L’ [...]


    10. The characters are well-drawn, and Jane's secret isn't revealed right away. In the meantime, the reader is given a descriptive & involving portrait of medieval scholarly life, with the conditions that Jane has to contend with. Her cross-dressing isn't a ploy, but part of who she is, and Duncan's confusion & anger over the deception is paired with grudging admiration that women aren't the one-dimensional creatures he's been instructed to believe by Very Serious Men. Surrounding the romanc [...]


    11. Medievalexcellent read! To live the life of independence she craves, Jane de Weston disguises herself as a young man. She doesn't foresee her attraction to Duncan, who stirs unknown but delightful sensations in her highly receptive, very feminine body.When Duncan accidentally discovers her true identity he knows he should send her away—but he agrees to keep her secret! For Jane brings light into the dark corners of his heart, and Duncan fully intends to teach his willing pupil the exquisite pl [...]


    12. As always, Blythe delivers! This book is no where near the level of cheese the cover and tag line ("He would teach her the art of sensuality!") implies. Instead, this is a deeply satisfying read into the politics--gender and otherwise--of medieval England through the eyes of a woman who doesn't want to be treated like property. Gifford doesn't gloss over the realities of the time, but manages to make her people live and breath.


    13. I liked the beginning until about 150 pages in and the concept of the idea of the story I really liked but I just think it's about 100 pages of repetitiveness and nothing goes forward until the last 40 pages I gave this book 2.5 to a 3 stars as it was a fast read but not to much happens in the middle


    14. The book has historical depth and a view of what it felt like to be a woman and a man in that time. It raises some questions that are things that we still think about in the present. The characters are well formed and it is generally a solid book. The only thing i can say is it was missing a little more wow factor in the plot department.


    15. Eh It was all right. I did not feel really any connection to the two lead characters for a long time and that did not happen until they finally did the dead. I think the ending was wered or somewhat off. It read well and the flow was good. I just don't see me giving this story a second time around.


    16. Romance étonnante. Jane et Duncan emportent dans une jolie aventure. Le secret de l'héroïne n'est pas dévoilé de suite. Il permet de voir la condition de la femme dans l'Angleterre médiévale. Intéressant et à la plume addictive. A lire si vous aimez les historiques.


    17. Une romance historique assez inhabituelle. C’est l’histoire d’un vrai garçon manqué qui va découvrir ce que c’est que d’être une femme dans les bras d’un homme.Ma chronique : songedunenuitdete/2016/04


    18. One of the first books that got me back to reading it was capturing and I loved every word of it :) I can't believe that I haven't added this before!


    19. Quick read. Charming and stubborn characters. Impressions and preconceived notions are often wrong and strength can come in adversity.


    20. Jane got a little annoying at times(it's all about me - spoiled attitude), but besides that I enjoyed the book.


    21. Um livro fofo, gostoso de ler, mas que peca na descrição histórica. Se o leitor não se incomodar com isso, pode ser uma excelente leitura para passar o tempo :)



    22. i am not too taken by this book the whole John Jane is too confusing What she wants and where she ends up I guess best left as a period romance


    23. Enjoyed listening to this one. Loved the university setting for the story and the determination of both characters.
