Risking her life
To save a knight!
Disguising herself as her late twin brother keeps Avva Carpenter, and her family, safe. Until Sir William Devereux arrives in her town. As the castle’s stable master, Avva can’t avoid the knight—or the desire he instantly stirs in her. He’s everything she never knew a nobleman could be: honest, kind, brave. When danger surrounds them, the only way to help William is to reveal her true identity, but can she trust him enough?
Totally brilliant and fabulous
Avva is masquerading as her dead twin brother Aven as the stable master for Baron Caerden and things are thrown up in the air when William, one of the Kings Knights, arrives to inform them of a royal visit but things aren’t what they seem
Avva is pretending to be her brother because of the inherent danger of being a woman near Caerden and pretending to be Aven means that she can be relatively safe whilst also protecting her younger brothers. Avva is strong, determined and brilliant at what she does. She would do almost anything to protect those she cares about even if it puts her in danger, especially as being seen with William does. I loved Avva right from the start, she is an amazing character who I couldn’t help but adore
William is surprised by his attraction when he first meets Avva, believing her to be Aven and he had never liked men before but the more he got to know Avva the more his suspicions about her gender got stronger and he found out her secret. He is one of the Kings Knights but he also has a vulnerable side, he would give his life for the King and very quickly Avva becomes to mean a lot more to him than he expected. William is the kind of person I would want to spend time with, he is loyal, determined and dangerous whist also being so loveable
I totally loved this book, I was hooked right from the very beginning and unable to put it down. Their story is full of danger and drama and each page had me holding my breath and hoping that they would be ok, even if things seemed stacked against them
Both Avva and William know they have no future together, they are from different worlds, but it doesn’t stop them from being drawn to each other and between them they start to realise what is important in their lives, even when reality forces them apart
I was hooked by this book from the first page and I couldn’t put it down. The writing style and the characters drew me in and had me so embedded in the characters lives that I could feel each thing happening as if it was real. As you can probably tell by now, I adored this book and as such I would recommend it to so many people but especially those who enjoy a romance full of danger, drama and friendship that will keep you on your toes and unable to put it down
