This is definitely my kind of book! I love medieval romance, and this story was one of a kind. The mystery the author weaves throughout the story left me guessing until the very end. The romance was perfectly paced, the banter enjoyable. I really liked the matching bold personalities of both Ardyth and Hugh. They don’t play games. They confront people outright and they say what’s on their mind. That approach to their characters was refreshing.
I really enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for an incredible medieval romance!
My rating: 5 stars
His shoulders—richly clad in a teal tunic—looked even broader from behind. His shoulder-length black hair glistened in the sun.
Too handsome for your own good, she thought. Just like Henri. And Robert, for that matter, though he seemed to have found his bliss with Constance. Their brother William she hadn’t met, but if the family genes ran true to form, Lord Ravenwood must be drop dead gorgeous.
PhD student Ardyth Nightshade has renounced men and pursues her twentieth-century career with single-minded focus. When fate whisks her to medieval England, she meets her match in a man whose passions mirror her own. Can she sacrifice ambition for a love she never sought?
Hugh, Lord Seacrest confounds all who know him. He refuses to marry without a meeting of minds and hearts, and no lady has even approached his ideal…until Ardyth. But she’s an odd one, with unique skills, shocking habits, and total conviction she needs no man. She also harbors secrets, and in the midst of rumors, plots, and murder, trust is fragile.
A woman outside of her time. A man ahead of his. They must take a leap of faith to forge a bond that will shape history.
