I had a chance to read this before it was released for an honest review. This is the second book by Madeline Martin. I had a hard time putting this book down. Brianna is a strong woman and does whatever she needs to in order to protect her people and home. She does not want to give up her freedom as she witnessed between her own parents. That is until she falls for Colin. There are many times that she questions his honesty and his plans for her until that moment when she recognizes her love. Colin plans to marry Brianna no matter what from the beginning. He takes the time to seduce her but then things get rushed. Together they learn how to compromise and how to love fully. They both give their all for the other. I smiled and cried while reading this book and look forward to Ms. Martin's next.
