Reviewed by: Jennifer
His surcoat still bloody from battle, William FitzAlan comes to claim the strategic borderlands granted to him by the king. One last prize awaits him at the castle gates: the lovely Lady Catherine Rayburn.
Catherine risked everything to spy for the crown. Her reward? Her lands are declared forfeit and she is given this choice: marry FitzAlan or be taken to the Tower. Catherine agrees to give her handsome new husband her body, but she's keeping secrets, and dare not give him her heart. As passion ignites and danger closes in, Catherine and William must learn to trust in each other to save their marriage, their land, and their very lives.
I loved this book! I got hooked and wanted to stay up all night reading it. I was drawn into the character of Catherine. She had such a hard first marriage, and I enjoyed watching her blossom under someone who truly loved her. I love reading stories with a strong woman. Especially when it's a time where women weren't looked upon as independent. Catherine proves to be strong and capable. Of course there's also the good looking knight to fall in love with. I enjoyed all the little stories, involving multiple characters, going on in one story. The deception of the best friend. The kidnapping and rescue all made up a great story! That's the thing that makes this book worthy of reading. Ms. Mallory incorporated so many extra storylines, without overwhelming the reader, so you are left with a great outcome and action packed. I look forward to reading Ms. Mallory's future books. I think Ms. Mallory writes a great historical romance.
