About the book (Goodreads):
Lady Sabine is harboring a skin blemish, one, that if revealed, could cause her to be branded as a witch, put her life in danger, and damage her chances of making a good marriage. After all, what nobleman would want to marry a woman so flawed? Sir Bennet is returning home to protect his family from an imminent attack by neighboring lords who seek repayment of debts. Without fortune or means to pay those debts, Sir Bennet realizes his only option is to make a marriage match with a wealthy noblewoman. As a man of honor, he loathes the idea of courting a woman for her money, but with time running out for his family’s safety, what other choice does he have? As Lady Sabine and Sir Bennet are thrust together under dangerous circumstances, will they both be able to learn to trust each other enough to share their deepest secrets? Or will those secrets ultimately lead to their demise?
I think I've read everything that Jody Hedlund has written. This is the third book in the author's young adult series.
I really enjoyed this book. It is helpful to have read the others first because that's where the reader is really introduced to Sir Bennet. I loved how he was determined to care for his family. I also loved Lady Sabine. I thought she was witty and a good match for Sir Bennet.
This was a fast read. I love to read about knights and their ladies. Since I knew that this book was written for younger audiences, that I shouldn't expect quite the depth that I get in the author's adult novels. Still, the characters were deep, and they struggled to overcome their challenges.
I received a copy of this book for free from the BookLook Blogging program. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of young adult, knights, Jody Hedlund, Melanie Dickerson
