I love Janny Wurts anyway, but the premise of this book is really fun. Elienne's beloved husband has just been killed, she is less than a day pregnant with his child, and a sorceror from another land appears just as she is about to be condemned to rape and death, offering her a choice - stay here, or come with him to marry another man and claim the child as his, to save a kingdom and his life.

Not only is Elienne a really fun, vibrant character, but the slow romance between her and her betrothed - Prince Darion - really works, using her grief to build the tension between them. Their enemies make sense, too, as do their allies. The prose is always engaging, and there is genuine pain and joy in the book. I only wish it wasn't a one-off novel.
