What I'm Reading Wednesday
I was given Rachel Rassano's new book Honor: Second Novel of Rhynan yesterday and I've had such a hard time putting it down! She creates this amazing world that is familiar, and yet not, with intrigue and treachery and romance. I really loved the first book in the series and the second one is just as good so far! I definitely will do a full review of this one when I finish.
***Edited to add:
I loved this book! It was layered with action and decision, romance and intrigue, and topped with treachery and treason. The author transports us to a somewhat medieval world with regency undertones, but grounds the reader so well, it feels real. I loved the depth of the characters and how their emotions intertwined with the events that shaped their relationship. It was easy to root for Dentin to find love after being so long denied and Elsa was his match in every way. So well done. I can't wait for more in this series!
Here's the back copy:
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.
