He’s her enemy…
…and she must not fall for him!
When her mistress is claimed as an enemy knight’s betrothed, handmaiden Aelfhild knows it would be too dangerous for her lady; she must go in her place. But there’s more to the scarred knight than she first thought—she isn’t expecting to fall for him! As the line between friend and enemy blurs, Aelfhild realizes she might be protecting her mistress, but not her heart…
There is a gorgeous chemistry between Aelfhild and Gui that makes reading this book such a pleasure. Elisabeth Hobbes sets the scene perfectly and shows the reader some history along with creating two wonderful characters. Gui has a sensitive side that I loved then when you pair him with the strong and feisty Aelfhild it really is a match made in heaven. Their first meeting is heated, tense and brilliantly written.
I loved the premise for this book with some secrets between the characters that made for some entertaining moments. Along with fabulous chemistry and fiery interactions that will make you smile. I also really enjoyed the friendship that Aelfhild shares with Sigrun, how she protects and looks out for her.
A wonderful combination of romance, friendship and I loved the journey these characters went on. A gorgeous medieval romance!
Five stars from me!

I grew up in York where I spent most of my teenage years wandering around the city looking for a handsome Roman or Viking to sweep me off my feet. Sadly it never happened but I developed a love of the past and went on to read History and Art History at university before venturing into the world of teaching.
These days I hold down jobs as a teacher and mum and have strong views on SPaG and the National Curriculum.
I live in Cheshire with my husband, two young children and two cats with ridiculous names because the car broke down here in 1999 and I never left.
I love historical fiction and have a fondness for dark haired, bearded heroes. When I’m not writing, I spend a lot of my spare time reading and have become something of a pro at cooking one-handed while holding a book!
I’m fond of ginger mojitos and Thai hot and sour soup, though not at the same time.
