    1 thought on “Loyalty's Web”

    1. Such a lovely romance filled with mystery. I really liked the book and I enjoyed reading it as the plot was well built and intriguing and kept me reading it all night!! So I surely recommend it to anyone, especially to those who like historical romance like me. I hope to read other books of this author as I like her style.

    2. A month or so ago I entered my name in a bunch of book giveaways. I was surprised when I received an email telling me I had won this book. I have now finished reading it, and it looks like I may be the only guy on that has done so. Loyalty's Web is partly a romance book, and is mostly advertised that way. I honestly didn't realize that fact when I signed up for the giveaway, and after receiving it I kind of wondered why I had won. But since I won the book I felt like I should at least try to r [...]

    3. Wonderful! Engaging characters, believable conflict, heartfelt emotion, and lovely romance without graphic sex. This book has earned a spot on my keeper shelf. It was truly a joy to read and hard to put down. Now all my housework has been shamefully neglected:o)

    4. This book was given to me by Santa Claus for Christmas. When I first saw it I was of course very excited, I love reading and this book seemed interesting. The first line was extremely intriguing I wanted to start it right then but of course I had to finish the book I was reading before starting this one. When I finally finished The Lost Hero and I came back to Loyalty’s Web I wasn’t as interested. I almost stopped reading when I found out it took place in twelfth century Europe, but then th [...]

    5. I really enjoyed the historical fiction aspect of this book. It seemed like the author did her research. I wish there were more books about the middle ages! Actually, I'm sure there are, I just haven't read many. This book took place in the year 1176 during the reign of King Henry II I think. I love reading about a time when they had knowledge of herbs and other fun stuff that we have all but lost now.Overall the book was well written. However the romance felt forced. Which was annoying because [...]

    6. I admit it, I'm a total sap for the time of knights, ladies, warriors, kings, lords and castles. But with that in mind, it took me a little while after buying this book to actually start reading it.That's okay, because from that moment I was hooked. I even stayed up past my bedtime to finish it. I just had to know what Clothilde's mother had done to her. And she's not even the main character.I sympathize with a younger sister who is constantly compared to the beauty of her older sister. It's bee [...]

    7. March 2012: definitely changing this to four stars. I enjoyed this so much more the second time around. I love Helene and Hugh, the best parts of the books are when they are together. A great medieval read, I look forward to reading the rest of the series! July 2010: I just want to start with a little disclaimer. I had a major headache and a million other things on my mind while reading this book. I will have to give it another try when there isn’t so much going on.I had read a ton of great re [...]

    8. Okay this book has been on my wish list for like a year. I was so excited to buy this book it was like Christmas! Worth every penny. Loyalty's Web is a clean romance with tons of mystery a few murders and forbidden love. What more could you want?I thought I had things figured out in this book and I tell you Joyce can spin a tale and did an excellent job of the unexpected. Once you open this book be prepared not to close it till its done! This is story did have some abuse it in that was tastefull [...]

    9. This book was well written and a thrill to read. The characters are well developed and easy to relate to with a depth you don't always find in side characters. It was really a whole story that was richly filled out rather than just a telling of the main two characters' story. The mystery and plot are fantastic and involve you so well that you won't be able to put it down. I love the way the author weaves the many layers of loyalty each person has and how they have to decide which loyalties to pu [...]

    10. Loved this book. Joyce's knowledge of the medieval period brings to life the characters and the setting in a vibrant masterpiece of storytelling at its finest. One of the best in her genre, Joyce DiPastena will leave you breathless with the budding romance between Gunthar and Helene as they battle against an unknown enemy while uncovering a treasonous plot. I know. You can't wait to get your hands on it. Happy reading.Loyalty's Web

    11. Loyalty's Web hooked me from the first page and held me captive to the last. Joyce DiPastena has done a masterful job weaving a passionate romance between Helene and Guthar that is anything but typical and enhanced it with a gripping story rife with twists and turns, suspense and danger. I could not put this book down! I even read it while I cooked, and I went to bed late on work nights just to read a little more. All of Joyce DiPastena's books are incredible. I think her writing is second to no [...]

    12. Great research! Overall I really enjoyed this story. About half-way through I flipped to the front, hoping there was a character chart. I was lost on many of the names since there were so many characters to try and keep track of. Some of the description was heavy-handed and repetitive, but it's been a long time since I've read this genre, so it might be par for the course.

    13. Joyce is such a great writer! Her characters were engrossing, her dialogue believable and the plot was intriguing. She has a way of explaining the history and traditions while making those descriptions feel organic, instead of like she was showing off her knowledge. And the woman really knows how to write a kissing scene!

    14. Very nice novel with a stronge female lead; it's something I would have enjoyed more in my early teens.

    15. There were so many different characters introduced so quickly that I got confused there for awhile. But I did really enjoy the storyline.

    16. It was actually surprisingly quite a Good read. The aftermath of a battle has everyone involved (victims and victors alike) wanting to bury the hatchet preferably on one anothers' heads or hearts. This story is a slice of the scenario following a siege and surrender, betrayal of a tenuous peace, plot upon plot of intrigue conceived to deceive those who have something to hide and expose the vulnerable to blackmail and embroil a king and his son into another costly war; with all these going on, th [...]

    17. This is my first read by Ms. DiPastena and I can tell you this - OMG, what a great book. I keep me enthralled with all the twists and turns. Excellent writing I might add. I love medieval history and this, even partially fiction, kept my interest. I would say that Joyce DiPastena and Kathryn LeVeque are my two favorite novelists of medieval romances. I read this book in one day and couldn't put it down until I finished. I cannot wait to start the rest of the series. The characters are all very s [...]

    18. Received the e-book free for signing up with an e-book service. The setting was interesting, the tension was good between the main characters until the first kiss. Then I hated it, overly dramatic, history background started to bore me with the back and forth posturing of characters and the kissing was too hot and oddly placed or with roughness (ex: pushing after). Trying to solve the mystery of who was really behind what was intersting. Skim read. Don't recommend but nothing offensive

    19. I voluntarily submitted this review after reading an advanced copy of this story.I love medieval novels, and this is a very good example of why I enjoy them so much. There was drama and romance, nail biting suspense, along with a great plot that kept you guessing right to the end, Al set in a medieval backdrop of the time and customs.Yes, I believe this is a book I would highly recommend and an author I will looking at, for more of my reading material.

    20. A absolutely brilliant storyline, set at the troubles of king Henry and his three sons. Very strong characters, can't wait to read the next one

    21. I read this book because I know the author. I liked it. The romance was a bit cheesy, but the plot was entertaining. Clean romance, murder (not graphic).

    22. SYNOPSIS:"In twelfth-century France, King Henry II of England has just finished crushing a rebellion by his power-hungry sons and now seeks to tame the lawless barons who supported them in this corner of his “Angevin empire.” To this end, the king has sent the Earl of Gunthar as his royal representative to ensure that Prince Richard and his former cohorts faithfully adhere to the terms of the peace treaty.Far from being welcomed with open arms, Gunthar no sooner steps foot in the county of P [...]

    23. I really liked this historical fiction romance/mystery. In the early 1100's King Henry the 2nd of England had just won the battles that his son's waged against him in an attempt to win over the kingdom and rule for their mother. However,Prince Richard was slow to conform to the peace treaty and taming the lawless barons who supported the "Angevin Empire" and so Gunther an Earl was sent to see if progress was being made and was commanded by the king to marry Clothilde of Merval once of Laurant to [...]

    24. I received this book as a part of the First Reads contest. I thought it was an okay novel. As a fan of historical fiction, I enjoyed the author's foray into the middle ages. But not being a fan of the romance genre, I didn't really love that aspect of the book. Don't get me wrong, I am a devoted chick-lit reader (mostly due to the humor in the books), but this is far from chick-lit. I also don't mind when romance serves as a backdrop in novels, but my enjoyment wanes when it is the focal point [...]

    25. Do you enjoy medieval stories? Romance? Intrigue? Sinister plots? Than "Loyalty's Web" by Joyce DiPastena is a story you will want to read.King Henry II of England has just finished crushing a rebellion his sons have started. Peace treaties have been signed and barons whose loyalty were to the Princes have been pardoned-for now.To make sure princes and barons are following the terms of the treaty, the King has sent the Earl of Gunthar to stay with the Laurants. Not many are happy to see the king [...]

    26. Reviewed by Joan Stradling for TeensReadTooThe Earl of Gunthar has been sent by King Henry II of England to assure obedience to the terms of the peace treaty with Prince Richard and his rebellious followers. Because eighteen-year-old Heléne de Laurant's father was one of Richard's supporters, King Henry believes an arranged marriage between Gunthar and Heléne's sister is the only way to assure Laurant's loyalty.But loyalties are questioned when several assassination attempts are made on Guntha [...]

    27. I won this book from a giveaway and never expected to be so engrossed with the medieval life. I felt like I was there with Helen and her whole family. I wanted to jump in and help figure out who was doing what. The author does an excellent job painting an accurate picture of the times and lives of the medieval times. The mystery involved in who is trying to kill Gunther, the marriages Helen's mom tries to put together, the beatings from the which Sybil and what she is really up to. The list is e [...]

    28. If I could, I would give this book 3 1/2 stars, not just three, mostly because it was an enjoyable read with good, clean (hard to find these days) romance. The drawbacks were that it was a very predictable story - stereotypical characters with a typical suspense undercurrent. I was disappointed that the characters weren't developed to be more believable. It seemed to me that the characters changed personalities based on how the author wanted the plot to unfold. Additionally, there were several p [...]

    29. I finished it and absolutely loved it all the way through. Next step: see if author has written anything else!I picked this book up on the clearance rack at Deseret Book and I am loving it . It is so well written for the time period it takes place. The author obviously knows this time period well. I don't know how well the book sold, but I hope lots of people were able to enjoy it. If it did poorly, its probably due to the cover. Of course I've never liked painted covers, and even worse when the [...]
