Maya Banks delivers once again.
In this new historical romance story by Mrs. Banks we have Eveline Armstrong-a gentile lady who has being wrong by those that love her-and her clan's archenemy Laird Graeme Montgomery.
After a decree from the king to unite the clans in marriage, to starve off impending war between the two strongest clans under his rule, Eveline has her opportunity to have a happy normal life if she has the courage to take it.
Mean while Graeme fights his attraction to his daft wife, only to discover the she is not daft but deaf and that he can have a real marriage and wife. Soon passion ignites and feelings start to surface. But as more time passes it is apparent that the Montgomery clan is not as accepting of their mistress as Graeme is. What will he do and will he do it before is too late?
It is here that lies the true test of love, and I think that Mrs. Banks developed this book to reflect the deep emotions running rampant between the characters. I cried like my heart was being rip apart for poor Eveline. Specially when she was telling Graeme the story behind the rumor that she was daft.
This book has depth in conveying what the characters were feeling.
What I have left to say is that I can't wait to read Bowen's story!
