Review: One thing I adore about Amy Jarecki’s writing, she takes a very scary and real problem from history and weaves it into a gorgeous romance.
Lady Meg wants to join the nunnery. I take that back, she NEEDS to join the nunnery. Believing herself deformed, she knows that no man will ever marry her, what’s the point in getting her hopes up? So the fiery redhead tries to join the church, only she’s very nearly killed until Sir Duncan storms the small monastery and steals her away into the night.
He had no choice but to go after her, and cares nothing about the ramifications if he’s caught. He’s a knight for the Scots and has been given money in exchange for saving Lady Meg’s life. As he tries to return her to her brother, he slowly falls under a spell. This highborn redheaded lass isn’t what he expected.
And the love story that blooms between them is tangible.
I loved their interactions and I truly appreciated the way that Duncan fights for her. Especially when his mother and everyone else is semi disappointed in the way he handles the situation.
In true Amy Jalecki fashion, the story’s only just begun. Duncan, I believe, has the most heart out of all of her heres she’s written in this series. I love that he KNOWS what he wants and goes after it. There really isn’t any serious internal battle, once he tastes, he wants, and he gets it. Period.
I also love how brilliant Lady Meg was, she took a handicap and turned it into a way to believe in herself, and mainly it was because of how Duncan treated her. He gave her confidence and I loved that.
Once again a beautiful tale.
