Review for My Beloved
Author: Karen Ranney
Date of Review: 02/12/04
Reviewed by: Marilyn

Reviewer Comments: One thing about Karen Ranney - her storylines are always interesting. Sebastian and Juliana were wed 12 years prior to the story - he being about 12 and she the age of 5. The previous 5 years had seen Sebastian fighting the crusades, being imprisoned and finally ransomed out by the Knights Templar. His ransom price was highly inflated for that time because the Knights Templar were not, as portrayed here, the good guys in this book.

Having been finally summoned from the convent she had lived in for the last 12 years, Juliana was pretty much terrified of having to finally assume wifely duties. It was quite a shock to her to find that her husband would ask her to perpetuate a lie and say they were married without ever consumating the marriage bed. Here we have the real core of the love story. No, there was no sexual interaction between Juliana and Sebastian - but yes, you will see how a love, pure and selfless, is built on compassion, understanding and caring. But don't despair, because when you get towards the end you will definitely be in for some very HOT and STEAMY love scenes.

The story was a real eye opener - mostly for the historical value and any lover of history will definitely be thrilled with it. This was a good read, at times slow, but well worth the time.

I will quote from the book, one of the most amazingly beautiful passages Sebastian quoted telling of his love for Jualiana ....."Aristotle was once asked the definition of a friend. He answered that it was a single soul dwelling in two bodies. What is love? I think it is the same. Be my soul, my dearest Juliana."

God, get out the kleenex!!!!

Review for My Beloved
Author: Karen Ranney
Date of Review: 03/05/03
Reviewed by: MaryGrace Meloche

Reviewer Comments: An Extraordinary Achievement Ranney's masterpiece transports the reader back to the thirteenth century with electrifiying ease. The gripping, forbidden love scenes, between Sebastian and Julianna, will hold the reader spellbound with a heavy heart. Caution, set aside your time, for once you begin your journey, you will not put down this mesmerizing book. A must for your "desert island" keeper shelf.
