Okay this is set in Brittany in the 1400s and Brittany is in a war with France, it’s Ismae’s Rienne job is to find out whose loyal to their duchess Anna and to stop those who aren’t. She’s also there to spy on Gavriel Duval the duchess half brother who she trust more than anyone. I enjoyed the war aspect and how it seems when things are going to finally go there way it gets stopped. However they don’t stop looking for salutions or Anna will have to marry D’Albret,and there’s a lot to hate about him. First off this man been married six different times and grown more rich with each of their deaths. Also he say’s things like “No? is that not a women’s role, to act as a broodmare to a sire?.” So yeah I was not rooting for him to marry Anna.

There was romance in this book and it’s my favorite kind slow and steady. Oh man watching them go at it each other, and Ismae not knowing what to do with him. See Ismae has never trusted men thinks to being abused by her father and her husband that’s why she loved being at the convent. So she’s total out of her element when it comes to Duval. Both are strong characters and both are loyal to there causes that sometimes don’t mix. It was all buld up and with a finish line like “whenever you ready, or if you never are, my heart is yours, until Death do us part. Whatever that may mean when consorting with one of deaths handmaiden’s.” The biggest part of the book was based on the poltical side, and how no one should be trusted. Also that anyone can be payed off. I loved this and never got tired of reading and rooting that for the A team and hoping that Anna wouldn’t have to marry D’Albret.

Okay so i believe I’ve ranted enough for now and if you didn’t know I highly recommend this book. Also I really wished I had the next book for each book is set on a different person. So I’ll hopefully pick it up soon, but I always have more book to read so happy reading.
