Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Married to a perfect stranger
Reunited with her warrior husband
When Constance inherited her father’s lands she had no choice but to marry cold-hearted Matthew Wintour. He left her for the battlefield without even a wedding night. Five years later Matthew has returned—a valiant knight! But Constance is no longer a frightened girl. And this time she must reach out to discover the honourable man behind the armour and what pleasures await them in the marriage bed…
This is a historical romance set in thirteenth century England, I’m not particularly familiar with reading stories set in this era but I’ll definitely be looking out for more now – and others by this author!
Both parents of Constance died of fever when she was just fourteen years old. To protect the lands she then inherited, her Uncle arranged for her to marry Matthew Wintour. He arrived, married her and then departed for the battlefield with only their vows exchanged. Five years later he returned…..
This story gives an insight into the way women were treated as property during this era and the power men had. It is a story, however, that is also filled with surprises, great characters, loyalty, intrigue, love and greed. There are characters to love and at least on other to hate. Their motivations, reactions and machinations are developed, explored and explored are romances develop and danger threatens from those who should really love and protect. It is an enthralling read that I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who enjoys historical romance with plenty of twists to keep you guessing!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

She studied English at Cambridge and Hull University and now teaches Creative Writing at a small university in the north of England.
