DNF @ 32%.
This was a bit too historical for my liking, set in the time of jousting and the like--or so it feels--and I prefer my historical fiction/romances to be set in the time of balls and chaperones and poofy dresses, aka Regency.
I didn't really like the plotline too much with this either. I got really confused at the beginning and this didn't help me later on. I quickly lost interest until I finally decided to give it up as a DNF.
For much of the story it's unclear what Garrett's feelings for Beatrice are - in fact at the beginning his intentions towards her are dishonourable to say the least. The author conveys his ambivalence well.
Beatrice's kindheartedness comes through more and more as the story progresses as she rescues waifs and strays during the course of the story. I felt empathy towards the characters who crop up and join the group along the way. The characters Ivy and Newt, who Beatrice rescues, each have a part to play and I thought the author handled their stories well as she wove them into the tale as a whole. There are some well-written villains too who commit dastardly deeds against the main protagonists, yet help to develop the plot in unexpected ways at the same time.
Throw into the mix a hasty journey to London through perilous countryside, add some fights with near misses for our heroes along the way and you have an edge-of-the-seat, will-they-won't-they love story that will keep you guessing almost to the end.
This novel couldn't have been more romantic. I loved how the two main protagonists each changed and matured as people along the way and how their feelings for each other change and develop. Without giving too much away, the ending is hugely satisfying . So I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a witty, fast paced love story.
Bea leaves her castle in Anglesea in search of her father in London, to try and prevent an invasion that threatens her family. She travels with the help of Tom (her childhood friend) and Garrett, a local blacksmith who happens to be the secret object of her affections. What she doesn't know is that Garrett has an agenda of his own; a revenge to extract that involves taking her prized chastity.
What follows is a journey not just of the physical kind, but also one where their characters develop and deepen, leading to an emotionally satisfying conclusion. It's beautifully written, with all the historical detail I'd want in a book set in medieval England, and characters that take on a life of their own.
An all-round excellent story - I'm looking forward to reading more books by this author.
