My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the second book by this author that I have had the pleasure of reading. Once more, there is a lot to love in her work.
If you are looking for an historical adventure with a healthy dose of romance, this is a good place to start.
I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters. The female lead is sassy and strong and the type of character that you want to root for. Although she is not portrayed as a helpless damsel in distress, she still has worries, fears and her range of emotions come through well in the writing, particularly in her struggle to get closer to her intended.
The plot moved along at a good pace and there were unexpected events to keep my interest.
This book has everything you could want in an historical romance. There is danger, a bit of mystery, romantic tension and a great resolution at the end.
I highly recommend this series. I’m looking forward to the next book from Olivia Stocum.
