Once, Abrielle's name was on the lips of every unwed nobleman in London as a proud exceptional lady coveted for her bearing, her breeding, her wit, and her beauty. But when her stepfather—respected for his courage and valor during the Crusades—is denied his rightful title and the wealth that accompanies it, Abrielle finds herself suddenly disgraced, no longer a suitable match for any proper gentleman.

His dark and scandalous reputation is legend, and Abrielle has heard rumors that his first two wives perished by his hand. Dashing, handsome, tall, and kind—a black-haired Scotsman with vivid blue eyes—Raven Seabern is an emissary for his king, and quite unlike any man Abrielle has ever encountered. From the very first moment their eyes meet, he intrigues and mesmerizes her—and dancing in his arms at a royal banquet leaves her weak with the desire to surrender.

But their love can never be, for Abrielle is betrothed to a monster. And the well-being of everyone she cares for demands that she honor her promise. Still, the fire lit that night will not be doused. Raven knows he has found the true one and must never let her go—though secrets, deceptions, dishonor, and unimaginable peril will surely be their fate if they follow the dictates of their hearts.

Start your review of Everlasting. Feb 24, Regan Walker rated it really liked it Shelves: medieval , scot-highlander. While I did not rate this as high as her other medieval romance, The Wolf and the Dove, I truly enjoyed this story of Raven Seabern, the handsome black-haired, blue-eyed son of a Scottish laird the father reminded me of an older Sean Connery , who is a messenger for King David of Scotland and trusted by King Henry.

He meets Abrielle, a red-haired Saxon beauty, in Henry's court just after her stepfather, a faithful Norman knight, is passed over by Henry for the reward he justly deserved. Suddenly Abrielle is no longer pursued by the eligible young suitors for she will have no dowry of land or title. And, worse, in order to save her family from ruin, she agrees to wed the evil and ugly Desmond de Marle who has lusted after her even before her betrothed was mysteriously killed. Raven watches from the sidelines as all this is happening for he is already in love with the fair Abrielle and will not leave her.

This is a tale of the time when there were still difficulties between Normans and Saxons and also between England and the Scots.

But against that background, there is the prospect of true love conquering all. And so it does. This was Woodiwiss' last romance, published in , and while not as sweeping or detailed in scope, nor frankly as good as her others, it is still a fine medieval love story and I recommend it.

I didn't hate it. It was not as good as her earliest works but not as bad as The Reluctant Suitor. For whatever reason her last few books just didn't pay off like her earlier ones did.

But she will always be counted as a favorite author of mine anyway. View 1 comment. Jan 29, becky rated it it was ok. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Okay, another heroine I didn't like and whose choices I didn't agree with on any level. The friends of Abrielle were one-dimensional and their side stories told as almost an afterthought and not worth inclusion in the novel.

They didn't lend anyt Okay, another heroine I didn't like and whose choices I didn't agree with on any level. They didn't lend anything to the story - in fact, they took away from it because they were distracting in how bad they were.

If as an author you're going to introduce a maniacal evil witch, use that character to its utmost potential instead of having her flit in and out with minor disruptions to the story; otherwise, she could have just been an unhappy, jealous old women - she didn't need to be a witch.

I think the thing I disliked the most was that once again, we've got a heroine who is simpering and stupid and instead of using her brain to think things through, just jumps to the most ridiculous conclusions about everything around her and we're supposed to go along for the ride, somehow feeling empathy toward her and her situation.

No can do. She should have been falling over herself in gratitude the first time Raven what a stupid name! No thanks. Nov 09, Lorena rated it did not like it Shelves: sci-fi-hist-fiction. A historical pain in the neck! I love historical fiction and when I saw this in the bookstore's shelf I didn't think two times.

Before I started reading it I saw the reviews on the flaps from Library Journal etc. The setting, the prologue were promising, it's Medieval times, I love that period of the history, I liked the name of the main character, but only that.

I know it was , but was it usual for a lady to be 'lifted A historical pain in the neck! I know it was , but was it usual for a lady to be 'lifted over strangers's shoulders' just because she happens to be without a husband? I really tried to enjoy the plot but I couldn't. Every event was predictable, the relations among the characters and especially the romance between the two main characters which was kinda lame, so I often caught myself skimming pages.

Spoiler alert: They lived happily ever after! Apr 07, Jennifer rated it did not like it. I knew going into this book that it was primarily a romance, but I never expected a disgustingly trite bodice ripper.

Maybe I expected too much, like a heroine overcoming all odds despite the lack of power women held during the Crusades.

Instead, we get a lifeless, helpless, spineless damsel in distress waiting for a raven-haired Fabio to save her. Very disappointing.

Abrielle's mother is a warm, sweet woman and her step father is a kind man - how does she get to be so bitchy? Raven is drawn to her and knows he will eventually win her over but you don't really feel a connection between them. It's amazing he is so driven to succeed when she is nasty to only him when he never did anything wrong. Cedric, Raven's father is very entertaining and really stole the show.

Mar 28, Carol Spradling rated it it was ok. Miss Woodiwiss' books were the first books that I remember enjoying as a teen, well adult books. I admit, I enjoyed some of her books better than others, and I have mixed feelings about this book. From posts from her son, Miss Woodiwiss passed away before completing Everlasting.

I don't know how much of the published book is her work, but her touches are missing.
