heart wrenching. When they first meet, she's married to an abusive husband.
Those scenes, while not graphic, were well-done and had my heart racing near
the end--would Bernard save her from her husband, when he had no right to?
I enjoyed this story immensely, and wish it had been longer. I look forward to
reading A Whisper of Rosemary, about Bernard's brother who meets up with
another character who was introduced in this book.
There is no sex in the book, but there is a lot of brutality. While the reality of a woman's position in Medieval socity is fact, I'm not sure I want to subject younger members of my family to it.
What really peeked my interest is in the sequal. When the Bernard's brother meets the healer. I hope that will be a better read.
I loved this tender love story about Lord Bernard and Lady Joanna. Lord Bernard falls in love with Lady Joanna the first time he sees her. She is married to an abusive man and Bernard wants to rescue her from this horrid marriage and marry her. There is action, suspense and true love which makes this a lovely love story. The story moves swiftly with a wonderful ending.
I can't wait to read A Whisper of Rosemary, the story of Bernard's brother Dirick and Maris, the Lady of Firmain and Cleonis, the next in the series.

Bernard is a young man, heir to a great holding, and under persistent pressure from his father to marry. However, when Bernard finally discovers the woman he wants, he finds that not only is she already married, but she is wed to an abusive monster. Joanna has been living in hell for the past year since being wed to Ralf. She has spirit, but sadly, most of that has been beaten out of her as she fears for her life. Upon meeting Bernard, she feels a spark of life and a desperate hope for a different future.
This was only 70 pages so you can predict where the story was going and what would happen to the villainous Ralf. Despite this predictability, I still enjoyed the story and thought that Gleason did a nice job introducing new characters for her other books in the series, while also crafting a nice romance that felt complete in the short page length.
The writing style had a lot of medieval flavor and I enjoyed the chivalry theme that wove throughout. I will definitely be trying out the next story!
You will find a love story here with a gentle man who will kill to protect the one he loves and a woman who needs rescuing. But that is about all you get. It leaves the reader wanting more but of a deeper quality. Everything was too quick and abrupt. It is a book with potential to be a great book but at the moment is just okay.
The husband of Johanna was a real sadistic bully. One wonders way her father would have wed such a beauty to this monster. Was Daddy one as well, or just a careless, heartless product of his time, when a chatel was property and could be abused without recourse.
In any case I liked the story. It was a very short read. It probably only took me about an hour if that, but there was a lot packed into it.
Would recommend it, especially if you are looking to fill up an hour or so.
