Tomas Dyrease, the newly made Earl of Irvaine and the village of Wisenvale, owes his good fortune to his king and the recent civil war. When his benefactor demands Tomas marry the cousin of a noble, he obeys. However, no one warned him that she wasn’t a typical noblewoman.

Brielle Solarius struggles to keep her village from starvation under the new Lord Wisten, her cousin. The men rode off to war and never returned. The remaining women and children face a dire winter if they do not find a solution soon. When she learns her cousin sold her into marriage to save his life, she isn’t surprised. However, she is taken aback by Lord Irvaine’s unpolished ways. Was this man a noble or a foot soldier?

Bound by the words of their vows, they face a rough future. They must forge a marriage while battling betrayal, accusations of treason, and villains from the past. Survival depends on their precarious trust in each other. Failure could mean death.

    Overall it was good, but not great...

    I received this ebook through in exchange for an honest review. If it were possible, I’d rate this book 3.5 stars. This book is about Brielle, who has to marry the new Earl after a war. The book does follow their relationship as it evolves, but it mainly follows what happens to Brielle. Because of her cousin treason, there isn’t peace in the kingdom yet. They have to fight and protect the people they love. I liked the book. I thought the story was good, but I thought the fact that it was Brielle who narrated the story made it harder to get to know the other characters. For example, there is some events about the other characters that I would have liked to know more about. I also felt the author forgot to develop on some events that might have been interesting in the book. Overall a good book, but not one of my favourite. Unfortunately, I feel there are some other books that have some similar plot lines and that I would prefer to this one. I might still look up the others books of the series though.
