    2. 'Gilliane' is the fourth installment in Roberta Gellis's beloved 'The Roselynde Chronicles.' First published in 1980, 'Gilliane' is now available in ebook format. It remains one of my favorite historical romance novels.Most of Gellis's medieval stories, particularly 'The Roselynde Chronicles,' could more accurately be called historical fiction. Gellis immerses the reader in the thirteenth century. The details of daily life: what people ate, how they dressed, spoke and thought are woven into her [...]

    3. [image error]★★★★½ Good Gravy Beans! I remember being spellbound by The Roselynde Chronicles when they first came out in the late seventies. With a couple of Doctoral & Masters Degrees under her belt – in something or other historical – Ms. Gellis writes what she knows. This, the forth book in this captivating series, was one of my favorites. When it popped up cheap on allromance a few months ago, I pounced on it.I must admit to being relieved that this one still holds up. I lov [...]

    4. From a life of cruel servitude, Gilliane is transported to England to marry her warden's prisoner. Her cruel existence continues until Adam Lemagne rides to her castle to claim it. Seeing no way to escape her life, she surrenders the keep without a fight and she discovers the man she has always dreamed of.Ms Gellis has based her Roselynde series upon the misunderstandings of strong, but insecure characters and until this fourth book, the plot works quite well. However, Gilliane is portrayed as a [...]

    5. I found it most entertaining at times that Adam interpreted Gilliane's actions as cleverly manipulative when that was totally not her intention or personality. Her character development was the best part of the book. (view spoiler)[I did find it a little off though that she seemed undisturbed about having been raped even if she had been unconscious while it was occurring (hide spoiler)] The historical background also seemed a little less rich than previous volumes, but I don't think that was a h [...]

    6. Gilliane is Book Four in The Roselynde Chronicles, published in 1979. I read my original paperback, with yellowing pages and cracking spine. But it held up for all 494 pages, and I fell in love with Alinor and her family all over again. Gellis goes into great detail with English politics and war in 1200 era. I have no doubt her history is accurate, and some of the political intrigue affects the romance, but I still skim through the descriptions of war and fighting.

    7. Was running out of interest n this series but felt committed. But I really, really enjoyed this one. I think it is as good as the first one. The characters were really interesting and I the slightly different perspective brought something new to the story.

    8. I just found this book at the flea market and recalled how much I loved it! I never read any of the others in the series. I pulled it out of a bargain romance bin when I was in high school and got sucked in. I'm exited to now read the others in the series.

    9. Pulled this out of a box of old romance novels my mother was recycling. I couldn't get into the book, not even to laugh at the typical romance tropes.
