I found Bridget to be a very appealing heroine who struggles to find her proper place in the world. Her duties—both given and chosen—often conflict with her evolving desires. Who can’t relate to that? Gregoire is a hero who will leave you drooling! He’s the perfect mix of strength and compassion. But he still has a few things to learn, and that’s where Bridget comes in.
The author’s writing is positively lyrical, and she has some interesting historical touches that give the tale a realistic flair.
If you like historical romance, I think you’ll find this is an exceptional read.
This was a lovely story. I don’t read that many historical stories, but from time to time I found one that catches my eye and this one definitely did.
On one hand we have Grégoire, the new Earl of Shyleburgh, who has just arrived to take his rightful place as their Lord. He also came to this place to marry one of the daughters of the former ruler of this place, as per contracted. Anyway, even though he finds his fiancée suitable, he also wants to win her heart, and for her to want to marry him, not just out of obligation. The bad thing is that he speaks French and she speaks English, so they find it really hard to communicate. That’s where Bridget enters the scene. She’s there to be the translator between these two, her sister and her new lord.
Things don’t go as planned and more and more the both of them start to grow feelings for each other, which makes Bridget feel guilty. It doesn’t stop the attraction, though, lol.
I really enjoyed this story. We get so really see what Grégoire is all about, and not just a warrior, but a man longing for a place to call home and a family of his own. I also really felt for Bridget, how she deals with her troubled heart, her sense of obligation and her faith. Poor girl was confused as hell! We also learned about her past, and I REALLY wanted to punch that Samson guy in the nether area. Gah, what an ass.
The story had a little bit of everything, not just romance, but also a few battles, some mean people (Good God her aunt), and some cuteness here and there. It was a lovely read, and the author’s writing really made me feel like I was right there with them in that period. I’ll check this author for future stories.
*Thank you to Entangled Publishing for providing an ARC in exchange of my honest opinion*
This was an absolutely beautifully written story! It is Bridget that Grégoire finds himself drawn to; her earthly, natural charm & intelligence rather than Aislinn’s pallid, remote beauty. While Aislinn finds Grégoire's maleness intimidating, Bridget has been secretly idolizing him since meeting him 5 years ago when he was made the Earl. But her decision had been made before then to give up her position as her father’s heir & join a convent after suffering abuse at the hands of her 1st betrothed.
Bridget does her utmost to bring Grégoire & the somewhat detached Aislinn together but gets her own emotions very much tangled into it. The romance is amazingly intense, as Bridget speaks supposedly of Aislinn’s feelings to Grégoire, what are her own feelings. She pours out her own wants & yearnings to Grégoire as “Aislinn’s” to convince him that he is winning Aislinn over but you can feel the heat curling off the pages between Bridget & Grégoire with every word she speaks.
This was my 1st time reading a book from this author & I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review.
After a horrible engagement to the rebel Black Hand she longs for the simple life of a nun. So she abdicates her role to her younger sister. Now her sister is engaged to the man meant for her and she can't help but realize that this might me a mistake. Being roped in to being Gregoire translator between him and his betrothed she finds herself falling for the Lord that was meant for her.
Soon between love letters and stolen kisses Bridgette realizes that giving up Gregoire will be the biggest mistake of her life. Watching him and helping him court her sister tears her apart and makes her fall more in love with him by the day.
This book was heartwrenching and endearing. I loved it from the beginning. Being able to watch the relationship grow between Bridgette and Gregoire even while they battled their chemistry with each other made for a nonstop read. I didn't want to put this book down once started. I loved the complicated taboo romance that blossomed between Gregoire and Bridgett.
