When A Man Is Torn Between Honoring His Country And The Woman He Loves, The Best Option Might Be To Choose Both
When Maggie du Woernig willfully ignores her parents' admonitions and entangles herself with Nik Koenig, she is certain he's the only man who will make her happy. Blind to Nik's real intentions, she throws herself recklessly into a situation that could not only destroy her life but compromise the safety of her country.
Han Heinrich has resigned himself to working in the castle stables, mostly as an excuse to have contact each day with Maggie. His aspirations for a more fulfilling career seem fruitless, in spite of his father's position as the duke's highest advisor. But when Han learns about Maggie's precarious situation, he is willing to sacrifice everything to protect the woman he loves, and to save the country he would die for. He only hopes that someday Maggie will forgive him.

5 STARS This book is a Saga that you won't want to put down till you have finished reading it. For Love & Country is book 3 in the Horstberg Saga. It is the only one I have read and I thought it stood alone fine. Of course now I wish to have read the first two books in the series sometime. The setting is 1840 in Bavaria. The Duke is ruler of the land. His eldest daughter is Maggie du Woerning. At first glance she is a spoiled princess. She has agreed to a Royal Wedding. The Duke tries to get her to marry for love but she is determined to have her way. Then she meets her cousin Nik and wants to break her engagement. Han Heinrich is a a castle stable hand. His best friend is Erich heir to the Duke. He was raised with them and schooled together. His father George is the Duke's highest advisor and best friend. His mother is the Duchess maid and friend. I really liked Han. He has loved Maggie for years. He is honorable and funny. The Duke asks him to take a risky mission and he accepts it. Hans uses humor to hide his true feelings at time, he also uses it to make others feel better. This is one long drama with lots of action, romance and sacrifice. It is also a clean book. I laughed, rooted for Han, laughed and cried with these characters. I do want to see more of them. I will be on the lookout for the next two books. I thought this was the first book I have read of Elizabeth D. Michaels till is saw about the author and realized I have enjoyed many of her books. I was given this ebook to read and agreed to give it a honest review and be part of its book tour in exchange.
When I'm ready for a nice, long, leisurely escape with fabulous characters who feel like friends and family I want to spend time with, I grab one of Elizabeth D. Michaels' Horstberg Saga books. I truly enjoy the kingdom and characters I've grown to love, and I hope this series lasts at least a few more books! The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars was that I was slightly disturbed by some of the main character's tactics, but many of the tender scenes between the couple later on helped me get over it, and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the book. I love how Michaels is able to craft each book in the series with very distinct romances between each couple yet meld their stories together so well that I find I can't wait until the next one! Clean romance, charming royalty, and exciting adventure--what more could you want?
This is an outstanding series and this volume is particularly excellent. The story line with it's surprises is very rewarding to read and keeps the excitement alive through the whole story. Highly recommended.
Han is probably my favorite character. He has a loving family and can do what he likes, but stays where he is for love. He has been in love with Maggie for a long time. Maggie has decided to take her love life in her hands despite what her parents say. She meets Nik and decides that she is going to marry him. The problem is she will not listen to anyone about who Nik really is. He is someone who could hurt her, her family and her country. Han's sacrifices everything to save her. It was a sweet clean romance. I love historical romances and I enjoyed that this one was not all about the sex. It was a great romance. I found out that it was part of a series but it did not read like it. Which I liked because I could easily get lost in the story without being confused. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
