The moment I finished the prologue of the story I knew I was in for a good time.
From the start it seems these two are cursed. Their first joining to the many years apart and miscommunication has set Merry and Thomas in opposite directions. It seems that Merry, once timid and shy is now more vocal. She's not afraid to speak her mind. Although she has had to bare so much from a young age she is still a delightful person and I love her character. Sir Thomas has me on an emotional roller caster. One minute I love him, then love becomes hate, then laughter, just when I thought all is lost with him he redeems himself. These two are great together and their dialogue is so good. I did enjoy that the story doesn't only focus on their re-connection but of the plots and ploys that involve them. I really like Nicholas and I hope to read more about him in a future story.
This was an excellent historical romance that kept me on the edge throughout the story!
