Description

I ended up disliking Konrad much more than I thought I would and that affected my enjoyment severely. Betrayed by the man she loved, Lady Willa of Wakefield is left a young widow with a reputation in tatters. He's been in love with her forever though he can't even admit it to himself, and he shows his devotion with the old 'pigtails in the inkwell' type of tricks. Helena Reynolds crossed the floor of the crowded taproom, her carpetbag clutched in her trembling hands. Some not all of the intimacy scenes drag to where I don’t feel what it means for the characters instead it becomes an awkward novelty.

Even though they sometimes messed up (especially Konrad), nothing done was unforgivable and the reasoning behind their actions was at least somewhat understandable. A decade of famine has taken its toll on the splintered kingdom, but it is the merchants who suffer most. Overall, I enjoyed this story, but I can't find myself to give more stars since it was a bit predictable in its formulaic premise and plot.I do agree with a lot of reviews here that this book is a little formulaic (but I still do love it tho), and sometimes, I would be a little more interested in other characters' little cameo, such as Roland, Garman, and Lenora (even de Crecy and Sabina), but that may be because I miss them. But there were a lot of things in this book that made me doubt, was my appreciation of her previous books a faux? So if you’ve enjoyed this series, I’d recommend reading this one, and sticking it out past the humiliation.

I'd put it off because I knew from other reviews that Konrad would mess up and that some aspects of both their personalities would sometimes frustrate me and I should have just read it earlier.

Any idealistic dreams of youth Kentigern once had were lost long ago in battle, when he was disfigured and blinded in one eye. She was a strong character who went after what she wanted (in this case, marriage to Lord Kentigern), and she stuck with it even when things didn't turn out exactly like she thought they would. I enjoyed Konrad's character development, he was quite grisly in the beginning, he thought the worst of everyone and everything but he realised that he'd been keeping people at arms length and not allowing anyone in.

I always enjoy Alice Coldbreath's storytelling (even though I skip all the intimate scenes) because she's really good at writing a grumpy hero with a kind heart. Although the road to them sorting out their marriage and feelings to get their HEA had some complications, it made for a good story with some angst but not too much. Aimee falls in love with Konrad at the beginning of this book because he wasn’t a dick about losing once?There are a lot of misunderstandings, miscommunication and dress shredding, but also forgiveness, love and a lot of hot sex scenes. Generally I love men who are serious but sweet (UGH THE VAWDREY BROTHERS I miss them so much), but I found myself agreeing with Konrad that he didn't deserve Aimee. It's a grumpy/sunshine trope so it just seemed to go with her young and earnest, sunshiny character. It's a rude insult when lowly and headstrong servant Edna comes to marry Duke Eli, instead of the noble daughter he expected.

But now she’s adrift in the high-society world where there’s only one person she can depend on: broodingly handsome Jeremy Norland.SB Sarah: thank you—the video ads are no longer appearing on my iPhone (which is where I usually view the site).
