A Stormy Knight by Amy Mullen, Book Review
In twelfth century England, Gemma de Vere and Nicholas de Reymes find love at a young age. Too naïve to truly understand what is happening, their fledgling relationship is torn apart by political games and scheming minds. Nicholas and his family disappear into the night and Gemma is left with a shattered heart.
Seven years later, Gemma still harbors a broken heart, and retreats into a life in which she will not be foolish enough to fall in love again. Mysterious deaths and accidents begin to plague those living within the walls of Blackstone Castle, and her father falls ill. She has no choice but to seek the assistance of King Henry.
Help arrives in the form of her childhood love, the handsome and imposing Nicholas, who is now a fierce and loyal knight bent on revenge. The pain and anguish he feels over the fate of his family casts Gemma as his enemy. To him, she represents all the misfortune in his life as he tries to keep her at arm’s length and far away from his heart.
Their journey towards truth is riddled with treachery and danger from an unlikely source. Will they find their way back to each other, or will his need for revenge outweigh the love he feels in her arms?
I love medieval romances and A Stormy Knight did not disappoint me! Mullen drew me into the story from the beginning and I found myself enthralled with the story. I loved Gemma for her strength and courage; yet at the same time she frustrated me with her lack of caution for danger. Nicholas was definitely the picture of a stormy knight! His anger and wrath one would not want to find themselves on the other end of it! I was captivated by the mystery surrounding Blackstone Castle and the way it all resolved itself. I wish there had been a little bit more information at the ending, but that is just me liking everything all tied up with a bow! Overall this is an excellent read and I can't wait to read more from Amy Mullen!
