Love wins out
Reviewed in the United States on March 22, 2019
As an avid reader of this series I waited a long time for Broch to have his story. He started out as a secondary character who grew throughout the books, almost like he was calling out for his HEA. Thankfully Julie heard him and has written a story worthy of him and as always given him a heroine who is bold, fierce and brave. Broch has spent his life trying to prove his worth not realizing he is worthy, he has also been searching for a sense of belonging. In this book his mission for the King takes him to a place he never thought he would find. Katreine, our fearless heroine is determined not to marry the man she blames for the death of her sister and forever be tied to the family she hates. Enter our cocky hero, as you can imagine sparks fly instantly between these two. Together they fight to find the truth while resisting their attraction to one another. Ultimately the truth is revealed and love wins out. What makes Julie’s stories so good is that although they are set in medieval times her characters are believable and you become immersed in their lives. Her females characters are always strong, independent women who may want love but lose nothing of themselves in the process, which is so true of us Scots. I love her use of language and attention to detail. I cannot recommend her series enough. Even if this is your first read you will enjoy it and want to go back and read them all.
