Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're back again with another Rachel's Random Resources tour, and this time around, we're back with a new Historical Romance that's ready and waiting for you to adventure through via Harlequin Books and Mills & Boon! It's set in Medieval times and though I've said it before, it bares keeping in mind, that I don't venture into this particular time period too often. However, the ones I have, penned by the author's I've read, I can honestly say, I wouldn't want to miss...and I don't want YOU to either (in more ways than one, so watch for the giveaway before you go)! So, without further ado, let's get between the pages of today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...
The Knight's Convenient Alliance
About the book...
The only man who’s tempted her…
...now poses as her husband!
When an injured knight arrives on Brida O’Conaill’s doorstep, the village assumes he’s her long-lost husband. But her only previous connection to Sir Thomas Lovent was an intense shared moment at a tournament years ago. Brida maintains the pretence while she nurses him, yet once he’s back to full, virile health, she cannot reveal Thomas is not her husband—or that she’s unmarried!—when everyone is expecting them to act like husband and wife…
Brida O'Connaill and Sir Thomas Lovent...
...two hearts thrown together by circumstance...
...but two souls that were meant to be..
...whether they can admit it or not!
The thing with these particular stories from author Melissa Oliver is that while there is a bigger picture going on all around them...you know, plots against peace, the king, and what have you...it doesn't take away from the romance at its heart. I loved Brida and Thomas' spark. Their witty banter and constant need to annoy each other to no end was delightful! It added a dose of fun, of humor, of something much needed to brighten the darker things that surrounded and haunted them both. The chance Brida took on living a lie to gain a modicum of freedom was understandable. The "unfortunate" assumption that the knight in poor health was the seed of that long held lie, story building. The dash for their lives, the near misses at meeting their maker earlier than planned, and the potential for a bittersweet ending to arrive unwanted, all went into making those tethers in your heart pull tight again and again. But by book's end, the fruit of their labors, however unintentional they may have been, see the light of day...and readers get something they could only truly hope for...with a side of entertainment to boot!
All in all, another great pair in the making from an author who spins the story round her characters with care, knowing that even though danger was at every turn, love, light, and laughter should rule the day...and the heart!
