More of a historical fiction than a romance
This wasn't at all what I thought it would be. Based off of the synopsis I thought it would be a historical romance but instead the majority of the book is about the two of them running between clans trying to warn everyone of a plan set in motion to over throw the king. But let me back it up a bit.
Mag has been held captive as a slave for a year and a half now. When he finally manages to escape he washes up on MacFarlan land and ultimately meets Andrena. Her father seeks a husband for Adrena and before you know it the two are wed. However, while being held captive, Mag heard about a plot to overthrow the king to take his crown. So once married Mag and Adrena set off to meet the king to tell him of the news. After meeting the king they go back to Adrena's father to tell him what came of the meeting and then to Mag's clan land to let his father know of the plot and to see whether his father stands with the King or not and then... well you get the point.
There is a ton of traveling, a lot of strategizing and a very minimal amount of romance, which is what I signed up for. I found myself really struggling through this. I couldn't seem to connect with the characters for some reason and even though the concept sounded like a win to me, I found myself not really getting into it. It would be perfect for someone looking for historical fiction but for someone like me who was looking for romance, I found it lacking in that department.
