This is the first Liz Carlyle book I've ever read (I know, I know, where have I been all these years?), and I liked it. Anais and Geoff were 3-dimensional characters whose romance felt real. Anais was a strong heroine and the fact that she was a fighter who was trained to be part of the militia was really interesting and unique. Rohan was a great character as well, but I personally found Anais to be more real and relatable. The only reason I gave this four stars was because I am not at all a fan of paranormal, so I didn't really appreciate that aspect of it. Save for a few, I can't stand paranormal books , let alone paranormal aspects in what I thought would be a completely historical romance. This stuff about people having special "gifts" isn't really my thing. I prefer books that are grounded in reality. That being said, the paranormal aspects were done well.
Overall, the writing style was beautiful as were the characters. Those who like paranormal would really love this book. As for me, I simply liked it because of the strong characters (especially heroine) and the mystery plot.
