Genre: Inspirational Historical Romance
He’s fighting for his future
—she’s running for her life.
Lady Jocelyn Ashburne suspects something is amiss at her family’s castle because her father ceases to
write to her. When she overhears a plot to force her into vows either to the church or a husband
she disguises herself and flees the convent in desperation to discover the truth. Malcolm Castillon of Berkham is determined to win the next tournament and be granted a manor of his own. After years of proving his worth on the jousting field, he yearns for a life of peace. Rescuing a scrawny lad who turns out to be a beautiful woman is not what he bargained for. Still, he cannot deny that she stirs his heart like no other, in spite of her conniving ways. Chaos, deception, and treachery threaten their goals, but both are determined to succeed. Learning to trust each other might be the only way either of them survives.
(After Malcolm has rescued a lad (Jocelyn disguised as a boy) from some ruffians.)
Chapter 2, p. 15
Malcolm laid the lad on the ground near his horse. Blood ran from a cut above the lad’s eye, and his swollen cheek promised a colorful bruise. Sitting back on his heels, Malcolm cursed his chivalrous self. What was he to do with this dirty, bruised pile of skin and bones lying before him?
By the saints, he had neither the time nor the energy to care for a scrawny boy. He had a se’ennight before the tournament, and he was not about to miss it on account of a malodorous halfling. This journey proved one ache in the head after another.
The boy stirred, groaning.
Malcolm gathered water from his supply and poured some into the boy’s mouth. Being chivalrous was not always convenient, but ’twas an oath he would not shirk.
The lad vaulted upright, sputtering as he whimpered. “Cease, please!” He rubbed his face, smearing dirt and blood across pale cheeks. As he looked up at his rescuer, his blue eyes grew wide.
Malcolm had to smile. Time spent in the lists honing his swordplay had made his shoulders broad and his arms well muscled. Boys stood in awe of him, men stood in fear of him, and women … well, women wanted him. He had long since been unaffected by the reactions his visage wrought.
Medieval Stories are usually not my cup of tea, but this book pleasantly surprised me. I started reading the book without even reading the book blurb (believe me, the surprise you get when you are oblivious to what the book is about makes the reading experience 100% better *winks*) and since the first page, this book captivated my imagination in so many ways! Author Sherrinda Ketcherside draws you IN the story in a fun and easy way that you will be laughing along with the characters before you know it! The plot of the story is very interesting, and what I really appreciate is the amount of action in the book that makes it a fun and enjoyable read. Everything about this book is pure ‘awesomeness’. The characters Jocelyn and Malcolm are hilarious in their own ways; you can’t help but want them as you best friends. This book is a fun, easy read that will uplift your moods and transport you to a land full of action, love, friendship, trust, and true identity! Can’t, wait to read Sherrinda’s future books
Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5
