Robert the Bruce sends me of his most trusted warriors on a mysterious mission for an desired ally. He’s sent to protect Lady Isolde, but the mission quickly becomes more mysterious and urgent once he meets Isolde. What is her secret and who is the real enemy here?
I’ve been a fan of stories about Robert the Bruce since I saw Braveheart. Now that I know more about the real history of the man, I’m even more intrigued by story pies about him and his trusted inner circle. This book was well researched so that the story fits well into the historical details. By setting the focus of this series on the lesser known members of the inner circle, there is plenty of room for the author to fill in the blanks with her imagination.
This story was full of danger and plot twists. The main couple have plenty of alone time for their relationship to develop. As they grow closer, secrets are gradually revealed that make for a novel that is highly satisfying as history, suspense and romance.
Another series to follow! Well sleep is overrated, right?
