This "Wick" series was my first venturing out of American setting for fiction. I did learn from it and found I can enjoy good writing from another time period and country. Be sure to get all the books to this Kensington Chronicles series.
Megan was a sheltered young girl in a convent when she was notified that King Henry had arranged a marriage for her. Bracken , her fiance was told also that the choice was not his. The two agree to live together for 6 months to see if they will suit each other and then marry.
The story line of this wonderful book leads you through intrigue, laughter, tears and devotion to God. If you like reading medieval romance books, then you will certainly enjoy this one. What I really liked was that it was not too long winded on the history level.This book was a five star winner in my opinion.
