I enjoyed the first in this series and looked forward to this one. I was not disappointed. Beatrice is trying to leave behind a hard life and meets Raynor. The attraction is instant, but lies keep them from giving in. Raynor is a caring, brave, protective knight who tries to follow his code. Beatrice is used to hard work and wants to give back to Raynor for rescuing her. Her determination to help restore Raynor's home shows her true spirit. I enjoyed this story and recommend it. I received a copy through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.
