Don't get me wrong, I'm a Christian woman and am all about praying and praising when you feel the need. But reading it redundantly in a book your hoping for some adventure and romance with a side of religion, was disappointing. Tamarah Leigh books have the right amount of hutspuh. This failed like a lead canoe for me!
Right up until that ending I would have given it 5 stars. If you enjoy a rousing good story that ends in the middle then this is the book for you! If you expect the plot development to draw to a logical and satisfactory conclusion, then this book only rates 1-2 stars. Because I was thoroughly enjoying myself until the moment I realized the end of the story was premature, I have split the difference between expectation and enjoyment to give it a 3 star rating.
Without many words, Rossano stirs emotions and describes the unfolding relationship. Though a soldier, Darius is a gentleman. He does not rush his new wife, but shows affection to her carefully and gradually. Brice eventually starts to open up to him. There are so many sweet moments! One of the most moving scenes is when Brice loses her slave collar. And so much feeling when Darius first kisses her!!
But there is not just romance. There's a bit of intrigue taking place in Jenran's kingdom, and Darius is about to get to the bottom of it. Enjoyed the strategizing scenes. Action scenes are described well without getting bogged down in details. The story keeps moving. Some of what was going on got muddled towards the end. Would have liked more answers about what the `bad guys' had been plotting.
Compliment or critique, this story left me wanting more details! Who are Ratharians? What is their culture? Does their darker skin mean an olive complexion? What does Darius' accent sound like? I wanted more about Brice's background. It's hinted that she suffered at her father's hand. What happened? Others urge her to trust Darius, but why are they so sure that he is trustworthy? I would have liked more conversation between Karyn and Brice. And what happened during that four hour gap? Did that one guard turn out to be a good guy? What was Jarn's story?
The ending did seem anticlimactic. It was as if the story should have ended a few pages earlier, or else have gone on longer with more detail. But I love this story. Clean read with romance and action. I've read it twice and could read it again.
