The Promise by Dee Dee Chant, Book Review
Blurb from the book:
I wish to tell you a tale that began with a promise destined to change the lives of many.
When only a child, Lady Adele of Berron lost her family during a dreadful battle and was betrothed to a stranger.
Lord Rafe of Valrek, only a boy himself when the battle of Calis raged, grew to be a feared warrior and trusted advisor to his King. But sadness filled his past and Adele served only to remind him of all he had lost.
However, the promise that bound these two together caused great anger to some.
What, Dear Reader, happened in those days of treachery and darkness? Incline your ear that I may whisper the secrets that you so desire to hear......
I really enjoyed this historical romance novel! It was easy to read, the characters were interesting and I felt like I really knew them by the end. I didn't want to put the book down when I had to, and I loved the premise of the story. Two people betrothed and they have never even met! And when they do meet, one decides to 'trick' the other to see their true character! There was just the right balance of intrigue, danger and romance! If you like a good historical novel with a little bit of romance, then this is the book for you! You will fall in love with Rafe and Adele, and Finan and Leofric too! The book would not be the same without those two! The characters truly make this story unforgettable! Four and a half stars! (I took a half off only because of the letter in the beginning of the novel, it was a bit confusing to me)
*This book is considered a clean or sweet romance! :)
You can pick up a copy of The Promise via Amazon or Smashwords.
