About the Author

Elizabeth Kingston lives in Chicago, where she can be found gleefully subverting tropes and inventing new ways to make fictional people kiss. When there's time for it (hint: there's always time for it) she shouts loudly about the intersection of historical romance and white supremacist narratives. Lipstick, skincare, and baked goods all rank high on her list of Other Interests. She sincerely hopes you enjoy her writing, and that you'll share it with others.

Very strong charactors and an interesting story make for a good read. You feel as though you've gotten to know who these people are and why they are behaving the way they do. There are tender monents and fierce battle moments but never over the top unbelievable moments. Personally I would have enjoyed a more complete ending to this story. They literally road off into the sun. (The followup book seems to tell the mother's story and not finish this one. I have not read it so I can't say for certain.) The wording can be tricky at times and you'll find yourself going back and re-reading a sentence, but it isn't going to stop you from reading. Some have questioned the disfigurement of the main female charactor, wondering exactly what is wrong with her. To me the question is answered in the description given. She is tall and lean, very physically fit with dark hair and gray eyes. At the time fair haired girls with blue eyes were considered beautiful. Because she was so opposite, she felt disfigured but in reality she was beautiful in her own way just as her husband told her. My advice to you would be to just sit back and enjoy this book!

Very boring. The writing was jumpy and all over the pace. The author was trying to hard to write in old English but clearly couldn’t.

Always appreciate finding a new author who writes more than just dialogue. I want to be immersed in a book, and she did it, she sucked me in LOL. Good job, I am returning for more.

I loved the writing style and the story in general. I have grown tired of typical romances, reading the same thing over and over. This book had me hooked from the first page. A strong female who is multifaceted and a man whose demons has caught up to him. I enjoyed it and will be buying the next one.

I was a bit confused about the references that were made about her looks. The writer made it sound at times like she was disfigured. I would have liked an epilogue to tell a bit about what happened after her brought her back home and what about the baby?

So much tragedy, hatred, envy, and love. Couldn't put it down until The End. Gmas

Often, when reading a period piece, the attempt to use authentically accented language can occasionally be successful but is more often than not an annoying failure. The Kings Man was successful at using a pre Victorian style of speech that added an authentic atmosphere to the story. I liked the writing style and the history seemed well researched and believable.

I had not read a book based on this location or time period before and found it quite interesting. Even more so that a mother would groom her daughter to be a soldier.
