Description:

A lady’s need for protection 
A knight’s chance for redemption

Exiled Knight William Geraint answers only to himself. Yet, a mission to find and reunite lost heiress Lady Isabel de Clancey with her family is Will’s chance to finally atone for the torment of his past. With every rushed mile, their intense attraction becomes dangerously thrilling. He swore to protect Isabel not seduce her, but their desire for each other could threaten the redemption he’s worked so hard to achieve…

My Thoughts:

There is so much intrigue around William Geraint and his troubled past that has kept him in exile for years. So when he is tasked with a seemingly straightforward mission of tracking down a lost heiress and returning her safely to her family, I was even more intrigued to see what lay ahead. Especially after such a fascinating first few chapters …

Whilst this is a historical romance tale, there is a fantastic dash of mystery thrown in which makes this such a thrilling read. As readers get to know Isabel de Clancey and watch as she tries to piece together memories from her childhood, they share in her frustrations at not being able to fully see the bigger picture that looms just out of reach. Why was she sent away? Why did no one look for her? What danger lies ahead of William Geraint and Isabel de Clancey on their journey, and will they make it back? The details that are woven into the narrative make this such an exciting read and I loved following William and Isabel as they darted down streets and alleys, or hid in plain sight. The developing attraction between these two characters allowed for great character development, and it was nice to see the way that William opened up, shared what troubled him, not just in recent years, but from his childhood too. This allowed readers a chance to try and understand why this character acted in the way he did.

The historical elements woven into the plot made this a great read, I found that there were bits and pieces I was keeping note of to look up once I’d finished the book (I didn’t want to interrupt my reading to fall down a rabbit hole on Google to research knights and crusades), and have since been scouring for more reads like this.

Vivid descriptions really brought the scenes to life, I loved imagining the landscapes William and Isabel rode through, seeing the tapestries and decorative touches of grandeur … what a perfect escape!
