Summary (from Amazon):
When her father died, she had promised herself no man would own her again, yet who could defy an edict of the king?

After the death of her cruel father, Brithwin is determined never again to live under the harsh rule of any man. Independent and resourceful, she longs to be left alone to manage her father's estate. But she soon discovers a woman has few choices when the king decrees she is to marry Royce, the Lord of Rosencraig. As if the unwelcome marriage isn't enough, her new husband accuses her of murdering his family, and she is faced with a challenge of either proving her innocence or facing possible execution.

Royce of Hawkwood returns home after setting down a rebellion to find his family brutally murdered. When all fingers point to his betrothed and attempts are made on his life, Royce must wade through murky waters to uncover the truth. Yet Brithwin's wise and kind nature begin to break down the walls of his heart, and he soon finds himself in a race to discover who is behind the evil plot before Brithwin is the next victim.

My Thoughts:
This book intrigued me more than I expected. I typically enjoy things set in a medieval time period and this one was one I didn't really know much about.

But when I (finally) started it, I was surprised at how quickly the story moved. Both Royce and Brithwin had a communication problem. But the way that they worked through their issues, I did find rather amusing. But I also found Royce to be a gentleman. And I liked him.

Overall, I think this was a good book. The cover is gorgeous and the story captured my attention.

I received the Kindle version of this book for free from the author to review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of medieval fiction, knights, Tamara Leigh
