Honor by Rachel Rossano, Book Review
The Earl of Dentin excels in his position as Securer of the Realm. But the king’s order to pluck an orphaned child from a loving home unsettles Dentin. When a dark-eyed woman challenges his honor regarding the mission, Dentin finds himself unable to justify his actions or get her out of his mind. Something about her lack of fear intrigues him.
Lady Elsa Reeve attempts to avoid the marriage of convenience her brother and mother demand of her. She understands the need to pay off her brother's massive debt. She only wants her family to consider her wishes in the process.
As Elsa becomes further entangled in a snare of her brother’s creating, only one man defends her. But can she trust Dentin, her unlikely champion, and his motives? With a murderer on the loose, Elsa’s fate in jeopardy, and a traitor plotting against the king, Dentin finds his priorities shifting in an unexpected direction.
I loved this book! Rossano takes her time setting the stage and introducing each character. I especially loved the details and the characters! It was nice to really get to know who Dentin was in this book, to shed some light on the guarded exterior and look into what made the man. My absolute favorite character was Elsa. She was strong, brave, honest and forthright. If you love historical books then you will love Rossano's work. She writes books with substance and depth. I am hopeful for a third book in this engaging series!
