Bold in Honor
1381 A.D. – As the Peasants’ Rebellion spreads throughout England, King Richard counts on Sir Ancel de Montfort to restore order in Kent and Essex. The king commands Ancel to secure Highfield, an estate near London, and houses royal troops there to defend the area.
Lady Margery Ormond flees Highfield as the uprising begins and members of her noble family are slaughtered. Sir Ancel rescues her in the midst of battle and returns Margery to her home, swearing to protect her. Margery loses her heart to the dashing knight and is thrilled when the king decides to reward Ancel by gifting him with Highfield and marriage to Margery.
But Margery’s stepbrother, Thurstan Vivers, escaped the peasants’ onslaught and arrives unexpectedly to claim his inheritance—and control of Margery’s fate. Can Ancel find a way to wed the woman he loves, despite Vivers’ plan to sell Margery to the highest bidder?
Join Ancel and Margery as they seek an answer that will allow them to unite in holy matrimony.
I probably say this about all of the books in the Knights of Honor series, but Bold in Honor is probably my favorite of all of the books…so far. One of the main reasons being that the story started out with action. I love books that throw me straight into the story, no holds barred. Being a Medieval setting, one expects fighting and battles. With this one, key historical time settings sees the characters surrounded by the revolts of the peasants and the death of King Edward.
I knew I had to gird up my loins to read this story because I know that every Alexa Aston book will break my heart at one point and then reattach the pieces in the most surprising way. But I’m definitely not complaining about that. It’s addicting.
The Peasants’ Rebellion was one of the main driving factors in getting Ancel and Margery together. Theirs was such a sweet romance, true to form in Aston’s romances. The trials and tribulations that they have to go through are riveting but knowing that there always is a happily ever after, I wasn’t worried about it. Most of the other characters from the previous stories make an appearance and it’s always good to have them pop up.
Thurstan, Margery’s stepbrother, is one of the vilest characters that I’ve come across. I don’t think I’ve wished that a character would just die so everyone’s life could be a little easier. The hate is real, y’all.
Bold in Honor satisfied the historical romance fan in me. This fictional world is full of great characters and endless family members that deserve their own stories, so I hope this goes on for a long time.
