Blurb:

When twin boys are born, a servant with a grudge switches their birth order . . .

1366 A.D. – Kenric Fairfax is raised as the second son of the Earl of Shadowfaire. The day of his Knighting Ceremony, a tragedy takes place—and Kenric flees the north of England, putting his past behind him as he swears he will never marry. He becomes a trusted knight in service to Lord Michael Devereux, who asks Kenric to lead an escort party from London in order to bring his wife’s sister home to Sandbourne.

Avelyn Le Cler has spent a year as a lady-in-waiting to Queen Philippa and finds the treachery at the royal court not to her liking. She looks forward to a summer visit with her sister Elysande, who will soon give birth to her first child. While journeying from London, Avelyn discovers a secret about Sir Kenric Fairfax that could change his life—if he believes her.

But Avelyn is plagued with doubts since she has no proof to present Kenric. As the couple falls in love, Avelyn knows she must reveal to Kenric the truth she has learned about his birth—even if it costs her everything.

Join Kenric and Avelyn as the truth rips them apart—but their enduring love brings them together again.

ARC Historical Romance

Put on your seat belts, because this is going to be a bumpy ride! The next installment to the Knights of Honor is here! Journey to Honor by Alexa Aston was exactly what I expected. It’s an edge of your seat read that transports you to the medieval times full of knights, treachery, romance, and truly has a satisfying happily ever after.

 

 

And when I say happily ever after, it DOES. NOT. COME. CHEAP! Every time and I do mean every time I read a book in this series, my heart is put through the ringer. Forget about the characters’ hearts, MINE. Okay, I’m acting selfish, but seriously I bet the author giggles hysterically while writing her books because my heart also breaks along with the characters. This is why I love these books.

 

I love me some chivalrous knights, but when they are dishonored, they’re even better. Poor Alric. I felt bad that I knew a secret about him that even he didn’t know. It was a cruel thing indeed and the secondary characters involved are the worst kind of villains. Let’s just say it’s not a cozy familial environment. Tragedy follows Alric and leaving home dishonored finds him working for another (much nicer!) family.

So, although it’s not insta-love, Alric’s and Avelyn’s romance is realized early. But it’s not a fact that should ease any readers’ minds because there is always something that throws a wrench into their plans. It’s the feeling of a false sense of security that makes it feel like the calm before the storm.

If you love these kinds of reads, do pick up this book or series because it’s kind of addicting. It can be read as a standalone, but getting introduced to the key secondary characters from the previous books helps make it more entertaining. No cliffhangers, just HEA’s.

This sounds good. I love your review Aleen

Aleen has read all the books in my series (which can be easily read as standalones). Hope you’ll give this one a try, Kimba!

I wonder how many times that’s happened to twins back then and even now a days. They had to have gotten mixed up a time or two but to do it on purpose…that’s just evil.

But even evil people aren’t all bad, Mary. Sure, I wrote this character to be awful. Taking away the firstborn’s birthright and all it entailed back then really cheated Kenric out of everything – but this servant did it out of misguided loyalty to her mistress. She thought she did the right thing and went to her grave thinking that. She would think her actions “good” – while we as readers are aghast!

I’ll keep this series in mind when I’m in the mood for an emotional roller coaster read. lol

While I love a good HEA story, not sure my heart could take being put through the ringer over and over again! Glad you enjoyed it!

Hope you’ll give Knights of Honor a try, Karen!

Be brave, Terri! As an author, it’s SO hard to be hard on my characters – but the emotional payoff is so satisfying when they beat all the odds and come together in love. Give Journey to Honor a whirl!
