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

An otherwise excellent book:
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.
My champion by Glynnis Campbell
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.
