The Yielding (Age of Faith #2) by Tamara Leigh, Book Review
Blurb from the book:
The Unveiling, the first book in the Age of Faith series, introduced readers to the formidable Wulfrith family during Duke Henry’s battle for England’s throne in 1153. Now, four years later, Henry wears the crown, but the Wulfriths are no less defiant—and no more amenable to forging alliances through king-decreed marriage.
SHE HAD KILLED A MAN. OR SO IT WAS SAID…
Convent-bound Lady Beatrix Wulfrith is determined to aid her sister in escaping marriage to their family’s enemy. Unaware of the sacrifice that awaits her, she leads their pursuers astray only to meet with an accident that forever alters her destiny and takes the life of a young knight whose brother vows he will not rest until the lady is brought to justice.
Lord Michael D’Arci is a warrior and a womanizer whose foul mouth and impatience bode ill for all who trespass against him. Falsely accused of ravishment years earlier, he refuses to believe Lady Beatrix’s accusations against his deceased brother. However, when he finds himself at the mercy of that same woman who clings to her convictions and faith even when it threatens to prove her undoing, his quest for justice wavers.
The Yielding is the second book in the Age of Faith series by Tamara Leigh. So if you haven't read The Unveiling yet, I would highly recommend that you read it first. The Yielding is a wonderful continuation of the story of the Wulfrith family. While the first book focuses on Garr and Annyn, this second book focuses on his sisters, specifically Beatrix. I loved getting to know her character and by the end of the book I felt like I knew her. She was so stubborn and determined to defend herself at all costs! I truly loved Lord D'Arci! What a war he had within himself trying to decide if he should follow his heart or his mind concerning Beatrix's innocence. This story was amazing and I lost a lot of sleep while reading it! It is captivating and the way that Tamara Leigh writes kept me intrigued throughout the entire book! A brilliant read, you do not want to miss The Yielding! Five stars!
(There is a sneak peek at book number three at the end and I cannot wait for it!!!!)
You can pick up The Yielding via Amazon.
