Medieval romances are my favorite books and Margaret Mallory didn't disappoint. The damsel in distress wasn't completely helpless and was more of a helpmate to her Knight rather then a goddess on a pedestal. Another feature of romances that bores me after a while is virginity and the inevitable loss of it by the heroine. However, in this novel Isobel has already been married (to a jerk!) so "loss of viginity scene" is skipped. Also Stephen's love of Isobel makes him want to be a better man which is something you don't hear a lot in romances, but you hear a lot in real life romances. It was sweet and believable. The rest of the supporting characters have flaws of their own and learn from their mistakes, specifically Isoble's father. Finally I liked how Mallory incorporated history in her book which peaked my interest in reading non-fiction books about the same period.

I will definitely be reading the rest of this series.
