Duty by Rachel Rossano
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed this fast paced, action packed, medieval romance. Tomas Dyrease, the newly made Earl of Irvaine, is tasked with the duty of strengthening the allegiances of the region by marrying Brielle Solarius, the Lady of the village of Wisenvale in the fictitious land of Rhynan. I loved the chemistry between the two. In spite of being reluctant to enter into this arranged marriage, both Tomas and Brielle quickly find themselves falling in love. Even though he holds the title of Earl, Tomas is a rough around the edges warrior who quickly makes inroads into Brielle's heart with his patience and gentleness to her and his complete loyalty and dedication to her and to his family. Brielle is strong, determined and courageous and complements Tomas really well.
While there is no mention of God in the story, there are several instances where the characters pray to Kurios. I'm assuming that in this fictitious world, Kurios is God. I wouldn't label this as a Christian book but it is a clean read.
*I received an eBook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
