I've read most of Leigh's books and enjoyed all of them! I've never read a medieval book before, however, so this was a new experience for me. I really liked this book. It was obvious that a lot of research went into it and, not only did I like the characters and storyline, but also, I enjoyed the things I learned about this time period. Nicholas, the hero, grew up in horrific circumstances that would make most people turn evil but he has a goodness in him that only a couple people can see. The heroine is a feisty gal and at the beginning of the story is being wed to an awful & old man but Nicholas and his brother burst in & kidnapped her. Although she's grateful to an extent, she doesn't really like these two men either! She's heard the rumors of how warlike & vicious they are! They terrify her! I loved getting to know all the characters and learning about medieval medicine, castle warfare, weddings, etc. it was fascinating! I would recommend this book!
