In this medieval tale of knights and castles, Matthews (The Knight’s Tempting Ally) shares a story of alliance, passion, and betrayal. Lady Johanne, recently widowed, is under the constant threat of attack from enemies near and far. One day, she stumbles upon an injured knight and helps him convalesce for the price of his protection. Sir Alewyn is hiding something, of this she’s certain, but her need for safety and her attraction to him convince her to trust him, at least for the time being.
VERDICT Matthews is a master of atmosphere, diligently researching the medieval era and making it easy for the reader to envision the setting and characters entirely. This title is full of lush prose and delicious suspense that are sure to entertain and ensnare readers, especially fans of the fake-engagement trope.
