She hates all Warstones.
Can this one win her love?
Balthus of Warstone secretly loved Séverine, even though she was unhappily married to his brute of a brother, then she fled six years ago.
Now her husband is dead, Balthus must find Séverine and reclaim her sons as his father’s heirs. Balthus’ desire is to claim her too, and despite his battle-maimed arm and her distrust of his family, he’ll prove he’s a suitor worthy of such a courageous woman…
Nicole Locke is one of the reasons I read historical fiction. The Knight’s Runaway Maiden is a dark, historical romance and the writing is beautiful. This is definitely not a light read and there is a lot going on, but Nicole Locke is an expert with crafting a well-written, intriguing novel that keeps your attention all the way through.
The characters are extremely fleshed out. I am very impressed with the character growth, especially Séverine. She is a great lead character to follow.
Overall, The Knight’s Runaway Maiden is an excellent novel. Dark, compelling, with excellent characters. If you enjoy historical fiction, don’t pass this one up.
