Lovespell is yet another great romance by the eclectic Deana James. Gillian is an English fletcher who poses as twins, the male Gil & female Gillian. The hero, a Norman knight named Brian, is badly beaten and his armor has been stolen. He is rescued by Gil who heals him. Although too proud for his own good, Brian repays Gil by helping make arrows. Eventually Brian figures out Gil's true identity and falls for her. To finish repaying Gil for saving his life, Brian must help Gil arm the English, the enemies of his own people. However there are many misadventures along the way, as a cast of secondary characters soon take stage and add more drama, romance and a tragic elements to this story.Also causing trouble in Gillian and Brian’s relationship is a gay quasi-villain, Ranulf, who desires boy Gil. He beats Brian and captures Gil, practically raping her, but is so excited he finishes prematurely and then is angered to find out she's a girl. Eventually Gil & Ranulf become pals, march through battle together and it's strongly hinted Ranulf loves both versions of Gil/Gillian.But it's Brian who is the very intense love of her life. Brian is a conflicted character, a knight in a time where the methods of war were starting to change, a time where the common man was able to obtain financial power. Brian must question who he is as the world around him transforms into something he doesn’t recognize and he becomes disillusioned. In the end, the hero gives up his knighthood to stay with his beloved, a lower-class arrow-maker who will still on occasion pose as a man. Good stuff.4 1/2 stars
