When Aude goes to England to declare her land given to her by an old betrothed she runs into Hugh again. She decides to help him. They declare themselves married when Aude’s brother and Hugh’s best friend find them together in bed (actually nothing is going on). This is a fast paced, heartwarming story of love and justice. It includes a Wessex wedding where you only have to declare yourselves married in front of friends to be married in the eyes of the law. This is during turbulent times and does call for passionate measures. For Aude has loved Hugh for years. Their attraction only grows as does the desire to find the truth and bring it before King William before it is to late. I would highly recommend this wonderful, delightful Medieval historical romance set during turbulent times.This book was received for the purpose of review from Good Reads and details can be found at Harlequin Historical.
