There Your Heart Will Be Also
"A nagging wife was worse than constant dripping, or so he'd heard."
Since the death of her father, Sarra has been plagued with men the king has sent to marry her - and take her lands. But Sarra isn't interested in sharing her life with any of the greedy men who enter her keep. Scaring them off seems to be the best solution. That is, until one refused to be scared. But how does she go about convincing him that he could come to love her for herself if she won't tell him who she really is? And what will happen when she doesn't want him to leave at all? Cedric left Scotland and his clan to chase his dream. Now he has won favor with the English king and the right to gain land. But he must marry the mistress of Greenbriar first. But how can he win said lady's heart when he keeps being distracted by the alluring maid, Sarra. Will he be forced to decide between the woman and his dreams?
My Opinion: This was a great book! I loved being pulled into the story of love, land and pride. Sarra was a strong character with enough realism to make her very easy to relate to. She seemed a bit old for the time period, but that's alright. Cedric was a wonderful character - mixing goals and desires as he falls in love with the "wrong" woman. The side characters made for a full story and brings you into the world the characters are living in. I especially liked Duncan's character. The action was good and the plot went well. A light dash of Christian slant, while not overpowering seems a bit out of place. Altogether it was a fun book that I enjoyed reading and would recommend.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and review are 100% my own.
