About the book
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.
Brithwin was such a fun character. Strong-willed, determined to get her way. The story starts when her father passes away. She is left in charge of the castle. She is forced to marry Royce, and he is supposed to take over things. She thinks he is against her.
The time period for this book is 1398. Set in England. I don’t read this genre very often, but I did find this book very interesting and suspenseful. I do recommend it.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit. This book review is my own opinion.
