    More like 4.5 stars. Great story!

    I've always enjoyed historicals from the era of knights, castles and ladies in waiting. This story began with danger and treachery and escalated until I thought for sure there was no way the mess Tahn found himself in could get any worse. The author did a fabulous job pulling me into the story, making me care about the characters, and giving me just enough info to get a feel for the two previous books in the series without telling me too many boring facts (This is book 3.) The author also brought the story to a satisfying conclusion without leaving loose ends that make you want to hurl the book at the wall. The love story was great, the abuse--brutal, the villains--evil, and the resolution believable, yet miraculous. Wonderful story. I just wish I'd read the first two books first because I can see from Tahn's transformation that he suffered a lot and I would've enjoyed getting to know him better before finding out how it all ends. This can be read as a 'stand alone' title, but I think it would be even better as the true conclusion to the series.

    Great finale

    Tahn Dorn is a happy man because he is marrying the love of his life Lady Netta Trilett. Sold into slavery as a child and forced to commit all kinds of heinous crimes including murder, Dorn can¿t believe that a noblewoman like Netta forgives him just because he turned from evil and embraced the Lord. He makes sure her carriage is well guarded when she goes to her bridal party hosted in honor of her by her closest friends.----------- A feeling of foreboding comes over him as he watches the carriage drive away and when she fails to return he goes to find her. He finds the carriage empty and the guards dead he can¿t track her because rain washed away all other signs of an attack. When he arrives at the meeting spot arranged by a young boy the bandits he defeated in Alastair led by Burle torture him to near death and only a miracle saves Netta and Dorn from Lord Trent who wants them dead. Trent knows Dorn is the rightful heir to the legacy he stole.------------------ The saga of Tahn Dorn comes to a close in THE SCARLET TREFOIL, a trilogy that takes the hero from the occupation of a criminal to the beloved of the powerful and Trilett family. Netta sees the changes in her beloved as he grows closer to God with each experience. L.A. Kelly has given her audience an enthralling tale of action and redemption as she uplifts the spirit by delivering the message that forgiveness for sin is never beyond reach of the person when true repentance occurs. This book and the two previous novels in the series come highly recommended.-------------- Harriet Klausner

    Great

    This is actually the third book in the series even though it says second on my nook. Great love story about forgiveness and mercy. Also about forgiving oneself.
