Let me start by saying, if you have any preconceived ideas of historicals, romance novels, predictable titles, you are dead wrong with this book.
Ms McKerrigan does a brilliant job with the characters in this book. More than equally matched, Nicholas and Desiree are a wonderful complement to each other. One thing that I loved is that the characters were thinkers. The author doesn't resort to standard solutions to solve their problems. Very refreshing. I never knew what was going to happen next.
There were believability issues with a few details toward the end, but it wasn't enough to spoil my feeling for the book.
I loved the point of view approach Ms McKerrigan used in this book. By using this method, I felt like I knew each character's thoughts and emotion without feeling the de-je-vue of a repeated scene. And it was all done without head hopping.
The pace of this book...my my my. Top dead center! Whenever a story slows down, I skim to the dialogue until the action picks back up. Not here. I read all of it. Although there is action throughout the book, during the quieter scenes, they were so well done, I wanted them to continue forever.
This was an excellent read and an author to look for.
What I like most about these books is that they all feature strong and sassy weapon-wielding heroines. Desiree is no exception. She's a thief by trade, with a quick tongue and light fingers. Nicholas is the local law man everyone fears. But he tries to be a just and swift lawman and on the eve of a hanging promises to take care of the victims granddaughter -- totally unaware of what he's just agreed to. Instead of an orphaned waif, he has just inherited a fiery, passionate thief. Quickly and in a humorous manner Desiree wins over his cat and takes over his house. Instantly the two clash but slowly they both find that they understand each other, since they are both misunderstood by others. Desiree is also on a quest to discover who really committed the murder that got her mentor/ "grandfather" hung and makes a powerful enemy. In the end the two of them have to work together to pull of the ruse of their lives if they are going to save theirs.
This Medieval historic is like nothing I've ever read. It's as much as mystery as a romance which makes it twice as entertaining. It has substance, it's compelling, and it captures the era in detail that leaps off the page. Their journey from enemies to friends and lovers is grounded and realistic but amusing.Read more ›

Easy read. Funny. Not very historical but all the characters were enjoyable. Understand the other reviews but still think it's well worth the read.Published on June 27, 2013 by LGM
