From the start I liked Nessa. She is different from her time period and even though she is scared of the gossip she embraces herself. Sir Eirle is the male version of Nessa and he goes against the “norm” in this time period as well and accepts Nessa for who she is. These two are great together. They have so much passion for one another and I love that Sir Eirle does make Nessa feel like a woman without the dancing, dresses, and other womanly attractions in this time. I gave this story four stars because I wanted it a little longer or more of an epilogue. All in all a great twist on a fantasy romance!
