*Reread Review*
In the past this was one of my favorites in this series because I loved Raine! I find that during my reread of this series that though, I still liked Raine through most of the book, he was quite exasperating! The arrogance and the pride.. OMG eye roll worthy! Yet another thing about Jude Deveraux's books that I like is that the males are far from perfect. Even if they seem that way for a bit.. just wait they are going to do something ridiculous soon lol. This book continues the love to hate, hate to love, give up and love momentum lol. The biggest adversaries really in these books are the characters and their flaws! That is just so real to me because in life it is also true!

Raine Montgomery has been declared a traitor to the crown after becoming enraged finding out that Roger had taken Stephens bride Bronwyn, and taking the kings soldiers down to wage war on Chatworth! Raine finding nowhere to go and refusing to own up to his mistakes is now living in the wood with a group of other cast outs! Alyx raised in a small village has spent her whole life on a pedestal due to her uncanny vocal and musical talent. Treated like a saint because of her "gift from god." That is until slimy Lord Pagnell happens by one day during her voice practice and decides to take her for himself.. Little does he know Alyx doesn't put up with no crap, and after putting him in his place her world turns upside down as she battles the system serf vs lord for the first time and realizes she can never win. Her only choice is to run away into the forest to Raine and his camp. Posing as a boy her and Raine immediately begin their relationship of constant bickering as each character is incredibly stubborn and neither will bend an inch.. That is until Raine discovers there is more to this "boy" in his tent! Sparks fly, as a battle of wills ensue which may actually pull them apart...

This book is happening simultaneously with the 4th book so its kind of odd but there are some tiny spoilers there if you can catch them! I also love that there are multiple references to The Black Lyon in this one. Including Alyx's Lion belt which was a big part of that story! On to book 4!
