Ce is by exposing the true assassin Helne races against time and dark secrets of the past to unmask the killer before the kingdom plunges back into warFierce determination gives way to mutual attraction as Helne and Gunthar spar over the identity of the traitor But their blinding magnetism almost causes them to overlook an even deadlier threat from an entirely unexpected directi. I really enjoyed the historical fiction aspect of this book It seemed like the author did her research I wish there were books about the middle ages Actually I'm sure there are I just haven't read many This book took place in the year 1176 during the reign of King Henry II I think I love reading about a time when they had knowledge of herbs and other fun stuff that we have all but lost nowOverall the book was well written However the romance felt forced Which was annoying because the romance was the main point of the book and I felt like that was a mistake I think the whole book including the romance part of it would have been better if she hadn't made it the focal point of the book That's just my opinion though I would love to read from this author but her other books look really sappy and that's not really my thingThere was a huge cast of characters in this book so we didn't really get to know them all very well My favorite character though was Clothilde the main characters sister The book starts out with her being a widow at the age of 20 She was forced to marry at 16 and is now being used again for a marriage alliance At first she seems mild and submissive but throughout the book you see her suffering from PTSD for reasons you don't fully comprehend until near the end She is very complex and your heart goes out to her I can't imagine the things woman had to suffer during that timeSo there were some minor annoyances for me with this book but overall I did enjoy it and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in this time periodI bought this on my kindle and would be glad to loan it to any of my friends who are interested

If I had read this book 9 years ago when I first marked it to read I suspect I would have rated it considerably higher As it is I have very little tolerance for type of male hero presented in this novel He burns with jealousy forces kisses on the heroine and in general behaves like an alpha asshole It is a clean romance besides the kissing and not particularly egregious outside of his behavior but it was enough to consistently irritate me as I read The mysteryaction itself was awkward and predictable The identity of the spy felt like a Blue's Clues episode with author all but shouting A CLUE at various moments throughout A lot of drama centers around miscommunication and flagrant distrust stemming from little provocation And the heroine while gutsy also behaved irrationally throughout What finally put the nail in the coffin for me however was how most female characters come across They're all willing wenches or borderline witches with the exception of maybe the main character I suppose with a book set in Medieval times the characterizations fits to some degree with the language of the day but at the same time consistently pigeonholing every female character in or the other grew on my nerves This wasn't one of those 1 star books I really hated I feel half guilty rating it so low even But didn't like it sums up my feelings pretty well
