About Glynnis Campbell

When she's not writing swashbuckling historical romances and playing medieval matchmaker, bestselling author Glynnis Campbell (also writing as Sarah McKerrigan and Kira Morgan) is a cartoon voice, the wife of a rock star, and the mother of two young adults. She's been a ballerina, a typographer, a film composer, a piano player, a singer in an all-girl rock band, and a voice in those violent video games you won't let your kids play. She does her best writing on cruise ships, in Scottish castles, on her husband's tour bus, and at home in her sunny southern California garden. Glynnis loves transporting readers to a place where the bold heroes have endearing flaws, the women are stronger than they look, the land is lush and untamed, and chivalry is far from dead!

From Glynnis...

I love writing "stories to keep you up all night"!

User reviews about this book

  • too long & dull

    By ajerzeygirl123
    long winded storyline, lacking in traditional realism, & a ridiculous, unlikable female protagonist made it extremely difficult for me to continue reading. the story had promise, but i had no desire to waste anymore time getting to the good parts (if there were any). pity really. i’ve liked other books by this author.
  • Love this author's books!

    By Ambrosia 5!
    Another fun story from Glynnis and I can't wait to read the rest of the series! I enjoy reading historical romances and escape back in time for a bit. Her characters come alive and pull you into the story. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
  • Loved this book!

    By R.Amrine
    I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed it so much I am going to start My Warrior immediately!
  • Horrible female lead

    By Tbernt
    The main female character, Linet, is ungrateful, mean spirited, and a snob. I found myself constantly wishing Duncan would dump her and find someone worthy of him.
  • Linet, linet, linet....

    By LucyMu
    I loved the story line, and actually found the book quite funny, super steamy and romantic... BUT the whole time I wished Linet would find herself dumped and alone. He deserved someone better & it rubbed me the wrong way that she was not humble and a complete idiot.
  • Amazing

    By Mary Pitinii
    Loved it!
  • Good except for Linet.

    By annoymous 123454323323
    I liked the main guy Duncan who is probably every girls fantasy guy-- humorous, can fight, and has good morale (well maybe not the best considering his 20 children...) but he was likable to the end. The main girl Linet was difficult to like. I mean after a while I figured this was going to turn into a tragic romantic book because she didn't like those below her and he couldn't be with someone so shallow. There were a couple of scenes where i just wanted Duncan to walk away and meet someone who was actual like him. And the ending wasn't that realistic with her all of a sudden changing how she has always felt about lower class citizens. She was just hard to like but all in all it was too bad and the author did make it an interesting story besides that.

    I love how Glynnis Campbell tells a story. I found that her funny thoughts seemed spontanious but we're well put together. The way she describes her characters tend to be so real, compassionate and extremely passionate. I wanted to skip a head to see when legit would find out who her beggar really was but I could not push ahead because I also did not want to miss any part of the story. If you are into historical romance this is one of the authors to read.
  • An otherwise excellent book:

    By KrashenBurn
    The "otherwise" refers to Linet, the primary lady of this tale. Since when does stubborn, willful, narrow minded, self indulgent stupidity qualify as "spirited" or "intelligent" ?. This character while initially intriguing quickly becomes a self involved bore so concerned with her personal perceptions that absolutely nothing can invade her own reality making the last two chapters and the epilogue the best part of the book. This book is well executed, well edited and the hero (except for his 20 presumed offspring) and his brothers and best friend are truly likable and heroic in nature. The villains are bad to the bone. If you are a reader who considers stubborn stupidity a female virtue...then Linet is your character of choice. If not,the rest of the story is well worth reading, just pretend she is a reasonable human being capable of learning even the simplest concepts.
