It’s been a while since I’ve read a historical romance. When I’ve seen this book I couldn’t pass it. I’ve enjoyed everything that I’ve read from Nicole Locke so far and this one is not an exception!! I haven’t read any of the previous books but I had no problem reading this one.

Louve and Biedeluue are both at the fortress for their own reasons. Neither of them saw the other one coming and that’s what made everything even more interesting! I don’t want to say much about the book so I won’t spoil the plot. All I want to say is read it, you won’t be disappoint!!

Nicole Locke gives us romance, mystery, secrets and lies all wrap up into an amazing story that you won’t want to end!!!! I’ll be checking the rest of the “Lovers and Legends” series; I’m really curious about the rest of the characters’ stories!



Other reviews from this author:


Nicole first discovered romance novels hidden in her grandmother’s closet.
Convinced that hidden books must be better, Nicole greedily read them. It was only natural she should start writing them (but now not so secretly).
