It's an amazingly good book. I quite enjoyed the story. And all the characters are really well-written, as well as, interesting. Angela and Konner are of course the best, since it's their story, but all other characters are just as likable. I especially loved Prince Richard. I hope we get to read more about him in next book of this series.
Angela is pretending to be a man. She is the strongest in her family and she must protect her family's honor no matter what. So here she is training with the a

Wow. This book is great. Angela and Conner have to remember that he was born to fight and he can't get distracted by love. But will he keep his head straight enough to fight without getting killed ?

A war is brewing. Tensions rise between opposing kingdoms. Warriors prepare for battle.

Konnor, one of the greater warriors of Hoyts, has never been more excited. He can't wait to put his incredible fighting skills to use.
While for Angela of Rom this is an unexpected but necessary fight, to protect her younger brother and honour her people as a successor to her father, the great Gregory of Rom.

Angela and Konnor are to be wed. But due to some circumstances, the first time they set eyes on each ot

I received a free copy from the author for an honest review.

I have always been a fan of strong female leads supported by a fascinating male character. Konner and Angela in the beginning were like water and oil, but slowly they began to come together. I loved how strong Angela was for her family, their own guardian angel. Konner was the giant bully that became her personal shield. It was hard not to fall for him as she did. I was very impressed by the secondary story following the first and wond

It's amazing how two different people can be so right for each other. When the book first started out, I was actually thinking that maybe Angela and Richard would somehow get together. Konner just seemed so opposite of Angela. But then time went on and Grace M. DeLeesie drove the two characters together in such a beautiful way that I was so grateful towards the end that they finally got to be together.
I hope there is going to be a sequel to this book. If so, I look forward to it. Five stars all

His RightHand Man is a five star book all the way. I truly enjoyed reading this book. I was told it was a Young Adult book that adults will enjoy, but it just didn't seem like a Young Adult to me. It was rich with characterization and I found myself not putting the book down. I enjoyed that her characters were believable and yet there was this air of fantasy that kept me on my toes wondering what could happen next.

I found her prose to be smooth and very readable. Although her story stretched out

I was given "His RightHand Man" as a gift from a friend. At first I didn't think it would be a book I would enjoy because it's audience base is supposed to be YA. However, I was instantly entranced by Angela's bravery. She reminded me a lot of Disney's Mulan, which is one of my favorite childhood movies.

I was also captivated by the developing relationship between Angela and Kon. While a part of me feels that he should have known sooner, the other finds it hopelessly romantic that he didn't. I d

I think I fell in love with Konner! If he wasn't fictional, I'd want him for myself.

Angela and Konner are both fighters, and I think that is one of the reasons they fit so well together. Both are willing to stand up for what they believe in, no matter what. That strength brings them closer as warriors but even more so as a couple. They are likely two of my favorite fictional characters.

I can't wait for book 2!

A friend recommended this book because I love historical romances. I loved the story and the characters. Angela and Conner were wonderful together.
The 4 star vs. 5 star was because it was a cliffhanger ending. Still, a very good read and I would recommend it.

I loved this book! It was funny and romantic. Even though it took place during a war, it still was uplifting and kept me interested. I was rooting for Angela and Konner from Day 1. They just had that chemistry.

I received a free copy from the author in the hopes of an honest review.

Another great read from GMD! I was sucked right in and held to the end. I wish the sequel was out so I could know the conclusion but will have to wait impatiently.
Angela and Konner were so great together and I want to know what happens between Philipa and Richard! I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.

Angela has always wanted to be trained as a warrior, but it is unheard of for women to be involved in combat. She is an excellent archer. She decides to became a man and fight. She succeeds for a while. She does run into Konner, her betrothed, and becomes friends with him, as Phil. As they get to know each other, Angela finds she really loves Konner and he feels the same way. Now all she has to do is tell him her true identity.
