Will she abandon Sir Theo to a miserable fate or will she give up her dreams to make his come true?
Book six in a series, but you don’t have to read the first books to pick this up and enjoy it. I’m always looking for a good medieval romance, and this didn’t disappoint.
Well, I’ll admit that I wish the ending had dragged on a little bit longer — I would have loved to see a little more during their profession of feelings. And sometimes the dialogue felt a little more contemporary than some medievals (I missed ‘mayhap’ and other such expressions). But overall, the author swept me right into the story and into the keep. I’d never heard of Olivia Rae before I picked up this book, but I’m going to have to check out the rest of her series now.
If you like Tamera Leigh’s Age of Faith series or Lord of Her Heart by Sherrinda Ketchersid, you need to pick up this book.
