Another fantastic book in this series!
The story pulled me in from the beginning and I was definitely hooked. Louise has a real talent for storytelling and the book flowed smoothly from beginning to end.
Louise included one of my favorite romance-novel-scenarios; when the hero and heroine are forced to get married and then develop feelings for each other.
I really liked Troy and his moral compass. Once he decided what his duty was, he stuck to it no matter the consequences.
Availine was progressive, given the time period, and that made for some interesting interactions with the other characters.
Throughout the book, I was teased with the secret Troy was keeping. Bits and pieces were revealed along the way, but it was NOTHING like what I thought it would be. Add in a jealous pseudo-husband from Aveline's past and that completes the formula that makes this incredible story!
I truly hope Louise writes more books in this series, because I want to read every single one!!!
