I loved this book. It was extremely engaging and the mystery was truly a mystery. I had no guess what was going on. Etienne was the perfect hero, not jealous or arrogant but protective and confident. Mathilde was just borderline too insecure about her looks but she too was a wonderful heroine. She rose to many challenges without being haughty or argumentative for the sake of being "strong." I was hoping Therri would get his own story but he still works well as a side character.

A lot of medieval romances take place during this time period but not many take place in France so that is a cool change. Also interesting to see different authors bringing a new facet to the Plantagenet family.

This is also a wonderfully clean yet still romantic book. I will warn you that this has cross dressing as an important plot point. I wouldn't have read it if I had known.

Mathilde, a lady whose father has been accused of stealing from the king and is now impoverished, needs a champion to clear her father's name. She accompanies her brother to a tournament to look for one. While there she meets Etienne, a younger son who doesn't have the means to help her. Etienne,charmed at first sight, begs to wear Mathilde's favor in the tournament. The only thing Mathilde has is a ribbon in her hair, which she is keeping safe for her brother. Before she knows it, Etienne takes the ribbon from her hair and disappears. As it turns out, it's a very dangerous favor, indeed...

I loved Etienne, with his sparkling green eyes and sense of humor. I loved the way he wouldn't part with the ribbon and was so protective of Mathilde. Mathilde was the ultimate self-sacrificing heroine, determined to clear her father's name. The plot involved mystery, court intrigue, and romance.

Joyce DiPastena excels at writing clean (G-rated), sweet Medieval romances. She brings the Middle Ages to life. With her words you can see, hear, taste, smell and feel what it was like to live back then. Her research is painstaking, and so her books are all historically accurate. If you're a fan of the Middle Ages, you won't want to miss them!

The story about the young men from Loyalty's Web, Therri de Laurant and Etienne de Brielle resumes in this book. While most of the story is focused on Etienne and Mathilde, Therri also figures large in it. With brief appearances of Helene, Countess of Gunthar and her husband, as well as Sir Triston and Siri, this book unites both a suspenseful storyline and continuity with Loyalty's Web and Illuminations of the Heart.

I have enjoyed all of Joyce DiPastena's books. Loyalty's Web is my favorite, but this one is an enjoyable read, as well.

This was one of the best books I've read. It totally kept me turning page after page, and was very hard to put down. Very little driveling on about things that just don't matter. Very little talk about things I don't need to know... Just great story, exciting, and well written,

This is my first Joyce DiPastena book and I absolutely loved it!
I am always looking for good romances that are clean and this one did not disappoint! There were so many story lines interwoven into the book that this was hard to put down… Characters were Noble and valiant and were relatable. I also love the history in this book… It made me want to go research and find out more.

I am now realizing though that this is the third book in the series and I wish I would've known that before buying it first. Now that I've gone back and I'm reading the other two books I kind of know what happens but oh well I'm still excited to read them both :-)

Review If you love knights in shining armor and maidens in waiting then you will love this story. Joyce DiPastena doesn't disappoint. The incredible authenticity of this medieval adventure is outstanding. The story is a continuation of the original book of Loyalty's Web which is very intriguing and you are held to read to the very end of what will happen. A great read!

I always like these medieval romances by Dipastena. They are full of intrigue, lots of action and suspense, mystery, and love, of course. Mathilde is our heroine in this book. She was innocent, yet spunky. I loved her character. And the knights—Therri (The Vision) and Etienne (The Seducer) as Mathilde has come to call them—are awesome. The villain is chilling and the action never ending. Another great book that was incredibly difficult to stop reading.
Ms. DiPastena continues her prowess with sweet medieval romance. Dangerous Favor takes us into a world of knights, castles, customs, clothing, sword fights, tournaments, treachery, history, lovely clothed women and the list goes on. All this serves as a backdrop for the love between Etienne and Mathilde, the hero and heroine.
I appreciated the purity of Etienne and Mathilde and the value of marriage. The obstacles in their paths, preventing them from being together, kept me turning the pages. The passion, yet restraint of Etienne and Mathilde is well done. Characterization is vivid through the use of dialogue, description of expressions, outward actions and the use of all five senses. All characters, even minor ones, are fleshed out for us. The glossary was of great help. I highly recommend this third novel of Ms. DiPastena.
