Usually I love every Hannah Howell book. This one I liked.

Ilsabeth is accused of murder and set up by her fiancée (although in his mind they were never really going to marry). She goes to Simon to find out the truth and obtains a couple of homeless orphans on the way. Simon works for the king and when she's accused of killing the king's messenger, he has to try to keep her from the king in order to find out the truth without the real murderer getting to her. The biggest gripe I have is that Simon tells the king that it is better if he doesn't tell him the names of the traitors until he has more evidence and the king is okay with that. This is 1450ish - I doubt very much he could keep or would have the balls to tell the king he was keeping this information from him. The romance was okay, but not as hot and steamy as Hannah Howell's usually are.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who is reading the Murrays series.
