I had a chance to read this in advance for an honest review. I love this series, and this book did not disappoint. This is the story of Helen and Eoin. Helen has been in an arranged marriage for five years to a cruel man. She does not give up hope that her husband will come to love her. The man that she had hoped to marry when she was younger is sent to train her husband's men, and she tries to maintain her dignity throughout her mistreatment. Eoin knows that he should not have feelings for Helen because she is married to another, but their love is too strong. Eoin will do whatever it takes to get her out of the trouble she is in. There are some harsh scenes in this book, but it proves that not all lives are rosy. I could not put this book down. I hope there are more to come.
