Rachel Rossano
Medieval Romance
Fantasy Romance
Book 2 in Rhynan Series
Duty, Honor

"I doubt my mother would care, my lord. She has grown calloused in her despair of me."

The Earl of Dentin has never had a problem doing his job for the king, nor has his rather caustic reputation bothered him much in the past.  So why does he find it so irksome now?  Is it the callous orders to remove the adoptive son from his old friend's home?  Or is the lovely Lady Elsa Reeve who holds him in low regard?  Either way, he finds himself more and more entangled with her and the problems that seem to surround her.  Lady Elsa knows she had a responsibility to her floundering family, but an unwanted marriage is not something she is willing to do.  Additionally, she wants nothing to do with a man like the Earl of Dentin, but when circumstances push her toward him, will she see the man under the image?  When murder, treason, and intrigue get involved, will she find in him a man to trust, or will her heart lead her down a road with more disappointment?

My Opinion: This was another wonderful chapter in the imaginary medieval world that Rossano is meticulously weaving.  Though to be honest, I'd recommend reading or re-reading the first book again before starting this one, as I felt like I had forgotten some details that took a while to remember about the characters and world.  The plot is intricate, but eventually all falls into place and tells a wonderful tale of love and intrigue.  Some good surprises and twists kept me reading all night.  The characters were relate-able and the romance grew naturally and splendidly.  I loved all the characters and am left satisfied with true love being found once again in Rhynan, but anxious for more characters to find their own happily-ever-afters.  And perhaps a selfish desire to someday see a crossover between various of Rossano's series storylines.  Definitely a good read.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
