    I find the Middle Ages fascinating and Rae does an excellent job of bringing them to life with her characters and setting. Lady Breanna is a strong and witty heroine. Her dialogue pulls me into the story. Royce is a worthy hero and who can find a patient man? He is a nice balance to Breanna's spunk and has a rugged handsomeness. The tension starts on the first page and continues throughout the pages. Rae crafts love-to-hate antagonists that amp up the conflict. This is one of my favorite Medievals. I enjoyed how the characters' faith grew throughout the story.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a pretty quick read. The plot moved quickly and there was some great snappy dialogue. The characters were great, especially Breanna. My only problem is that the romance happened really suddenly. Like all of the sudden they were in love and I'm not sure how they got there. It's a minor thing and I did really love the interactions of the two characters in question. Recommended if you want a quick, fun, historical fiction read! I'll probably be looking for the sequel at some point too.

    This is a wonderful story of love, acceptance, humility, and faith. I was pulled into the story from the first page and loved watching Breanna and Royce's uneasy alliance grow into devoted love. Oliva Rae made the Middle Ages come alive with wonderful descriptions and period dialogue that I could almost hear being being spoken. A fast read, I finished it in two sittings and have already purchased book 2!

    GREAT PLOTSThe author can be assured of gaining more readers if this is an example of her fine writing. The characters were exactly what you would expect of the age they were set in. Plots within plots made this an exciting read and one I would love to read more of. I do not want to give the story away and ruin your enjoyment of reading this book, but I for one cannot wait to read the follow on story. Great writing!

    I loved the characters in this book. Both the hero and the heroine were made very real to me through their passion and flaws; you root for them the whole time. I'll definitely be reading the next book by Olivia Rae.

    God's plans are perfectAmid knights, ladies and castles a sweet story is woven together that exemplifies the gracious, perfect love of God and a gentle reminder that God's thoughts and plans for us his children are perfect, far above that which we can even imagine.

    I didn't make it through this book - I found it really hard to get into, soldiered on until the end of chapter 6, and then put it down. It's entirely possible it gets better after that. I found the characters flat: Lady Durville is independent and determined, Canwell is... loyal?, and Lord de Beaufou is conniving and so obviously evil that it's hard to believe anyone doesn't see it. Also, Lord de Beaufou's plan, which he explains in chapter one, is to frame Lady Durville for adultery (with him) and witchcraft, forcing her to marry him so he can get his hands on her estate. This premise doesn't really make any sense to me - even if Lord de Beaufou succeeds, he'll end up married to a notorious adulterer and witch. Perhaps he just plans to put about that she is one if she refuses him, but he definitely says he already has been, so I don't really understand. The only really sensible angle is that he plans to murder her immediately after marriage, but in that case, why would she accept his offer instead of fleeing?Into the middle of this scheme steps Royce Canwell, who was sent by Lady Durville's (presumably dead) brother to help her. He is extremely obstinate sometimes, even when he's supposed to be winning her favor - for example, when she calls him out on not praying at Mass, and demands that he say his prayers in future, he flatly refuses and walks away, making her chase after him and eventually snap at him, when he could have just admitted up front that he didn't know them and saved everyone four pages of back-and-forth.Shortly after this point I put the book down, because I found the two protagonists so unlikeable and irritating that I was hoping Lord de Beaufou would murder them both.There's one other thing that made this book difficult to get through for me: It's written in Ye Olde English, so there's a lot of "mayhap" and "nay" and replacement of "it" with "'t", which makes the book read like a trashy fantasy novel. It's supposed to imitate the late old English / early middle English of the period, but it isn't anywhere close to it. A lot of the biblical references use the King James Version for the "historical flavor", including Lady Durville quoting Matthew 6:7 as it appears in the KJV, but the KJV is from hundreds of years later and a middle English translation of this scripture (if it had existed, which would have been strange, since Latin was the liturgical language of the time I think) would have looked nothing like it. In general, the use of language is quite ahistorical and distracting; I think the book would have been better off written in modern English, which would have been just as ahistorical but much easier to follow.Anyway, overall: I don't think I would recommend this book unless you're really into historical romances. The setting isn't particularly richly rendered, the story (as far as I read) is largely historical fiction set-pieces ((view spoiler)[non-fatal arrow to the shoulder (hide spoiler)], town composed entirely of a blacksmith and a farm, (view spoiler)[unexplained bandit raid (hide spoiler)], that sort of thing), and the characters seem somehow listless, like they know they're in a book and are plodding towards the conclusion they're already expecting.Caveat lector: I did not finish this book. I got about 25% of the way through. It's entirely possible that it gets much better afterwards, and there's no shortage of reviews that were perfectly happy with it, so take what I've written here with a grain of salt. It just wasn't working for me.

    This story has a strong, fiercely independent woman as a leading character. I liked her from the very beginning and my spirit chafed with hers at all the restricting influences she was up against in her time, culture and circumstances. This is a shorter story than I had expected and some of it was a bit predictable; nevertheless, I found it entertaining.

    Nice book for a quick easy read. Not much conflict, solution resolved too easily.

    This story was a very simple tale told in somewhat sentimental and dramatic language. I thought Brenna was a bit wishy-washy--one minute tough (hitting someone with a bench) and the next minute immobile with fear. I did not hate it but didn't love the story. I have NO desire to read further in the series.

    A Real Page Turner!I read this story n one sitting. It kept me intrigued to know how it would all work out to a HEA. Wish it was longer. Hoping the sequel will continue the story of Royce and Breanna. Love that Olivia is another great Christian author to follow.
