However, I had a few issues with this book, thus my 4 Star Rating. This author writing style is very descriptive of even minor details (sometimes exhaustively so) and yet we are never told the eye color of the heroine, unless your consider a one time mention of her "pale gaze" a description. Yet more than once we are told, not only the eye color of the hero, but the exact shade of blue his eyes are. Furthermore, we are told the eye color of just about every male, in this story, regardless off how minor the character is. This oversight only happens with females. The only female character that has an eye-color description, is the little girl in the epilogue. In the earlier books I have read from Ms. Le Veque, she gives wonderful and vibrant descriptions of the heroines' looks, but in her more recent books (at least the ones I have read) no so much. To me this a terrible shame, I missed those vivid descriptions, I know some readers do not like them, but I personally love them. However, I'm grateful that she still describes her heroines as very beautiful.
I had a big problem with the explanation (or lack of) as to how Lily was forced into marriage. It is ludicrous to think that Dash with all his power and influence over the Duke could not have put and end to the scheming of Clayton and his father, before said scheme could come to fruition. And this brings me to Bentley (the hero in the secondary romance). I don't particularly like secondary romances that take too much page space, mainly because I like the focus to be in the main couple. But in the case of "Godspeed", I did not like the secondary romance itself. I just could not get past the fact that Bentley stood by, as virginal Lily, the woman he loved and who loved him was forced to marry a despicable man. And then he lived in the same household for two year (passively seeing her suffer) before he finally took action.
And although I would not have down-graded my review for this reason, SPOILER TO FOLLOW, I hated reading about Ajax's death. I know that a writer has a right to take his/her characters in which ever direction he/she wants, I also know that all characters (like the rest of us) will eventually have to die, I just don't want to read about it (a matter of personal taste). Especially when it came to a character that I did not want to like, but ended up loving: the hero from "The Dark Lord". END OF SPOILER
And finally unlike many (perhaps most) of Ms. Le Veque's fans I do not particularly want to read about heroes from other stories. I have two reasons for this aversion: First Reason, sometimes I have not read their stories, simply because I know by the book description and/or reviews that I would not like to read about them. Secondly, for the most part all the catching up, is only with the men, the women never figure prominently, if at all, in all these reunions. Which brings me to my last point. I prefer my historical romances to concentrate on the romance. For my taste this book had a little too much of male bonding, and prolong discussions of political/war strategies, etc.
The characters are always colorful and by the time you are into the second or third chapter it is hard to put the book down unless you absolutely have too. I must admit that William de Wolfe and his family have always been my favorite as I love William and Jordan but Dashiell Du Reims and Belladona have won me over, sorry William. But I will always read any and all de Wolfe and stories of the Pack that I can find.
This is such a beautiful love story. Dash has loved Bella since she was a young girl and as she grows into a young woman he fears he is too old and has no idea that Bella is just as much in love with him. So the story begins. The humor of how the girls were named puts a fresh perspective to the story as well as they are all named after deadly plants. Belladonna, Lily and Acacia. Lily is the oldest and is married to the villain Clayton Le Cairon who we all love to hate nor can we wait for him to meet his end. The girls father Edward the Duke of Savernake is suffering from a tragic case of dementia and Dash is not only his protector but Edward has always loved him as a son. Clayton has also taken advantage of the middle sister Acacia and has her believing his lies that he loves her and will eventually find her a husband but in the mean time he is showing her how to please a man so that when the time comes she will be a good wife. While all along the family and all that know her think that she is going to commit herself to the Abbey and devote her life to God. As you will find out this comes to a tragic end as the story evolves.
Clayton however tries very hard to kill off Edward and does put Edward into many harmful situations but Dash and his knights always find a way to protect him and when Clayton finally makes his move to eliminate Dash he takes out another knight who is and was loved by all.
He also tries to contract a marriage for Bella but Dash is on to him and crushes his every move.
I feel as though I'm giving to much away and to see how this beautiful love story transpires you will need to get the book and read for yourself. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Kathryn is such a great author and she never lets you down.
