1385 A.D. – Knighted on the battlefield for extreme bravery, Edward de Montfort accepts an invitation to serve in King Richard’s guard at the royal court. When the king sends him on a covert mission to Canterbury, Edward hopes success will allow him to win his freedom so he can return home to a quieter life.

Lady Rosalyne Parry loses her parents when she is an infant and is raised by her uncle, an artist of some renown. Due to his failing health, Rosalyne takes over Templeton Parry’s commissions, painting in secret while permitting him to receive the credit since she believes no one would accept a woman as an artist.

Rosalyne meets Edward while he is disguised as a peasant working on Canterbury’s wall, and they fall deeply in love. When Edward reveals his true identity to Rosalyne, he convinces her to come to London—and step out from the shadows in order to become recognized as an artist in her own right.
Join Edward and Rosalyne as they navigate the political waters at court and find a deep, abiding love.

ARC Historical Romance Series

What more can be said about the Knights of Honor series? Every book takes me on a Medieval journey full of sweet romance and chivalry. Alexa Aston has the perfect formula for coming up with endearing characters that make you root for them.


I’ve read every book, so far, in the Knights of Honor series and it’s fun to see Geoffry’s and Merryn’s children grow up and find their happily ever afters. In Love and Honor, Edward comes front and center. He becomes a Knight (naturally), and finds himself serving a young King who has surrounded himself with questionable advisers. While this story does not take place in the court setting, Edward still encounters shady characters and he must serve his King and country as best as he can.

There’s always that one heartbreaking factor and that one character that you love to hate in an Alexa Aston Knights of Honor book.

Heartbreaking factor: Rosalyn’s back story.
Love to hate: Rosalyn’s uncles’ wife.

I was so incensed as I read the opening scenes but I was kind of relieved to get that over with because the rest of the book, I knew, would be worry free. (It’s that formula I was talking about). Except for that one admission towards the end which made me a little sad.

Insta Love: Not a fan, but somehow it works out in Medieval’s. It’s a sweet romance with a little touch of heat.

Rosalyn and Edward are the perfect couple for each other and I just love their easy going temperaments. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and totally look forward to Hal’s story.


This book can be read as a standalone.

not really a fan of instalove, so kind of glad to hear you felt it worked in this. Sometimes it’s grating, I love slow burn. great review, I still want to get into this series when I am out of my apparently – very – long romance slump


I was aiming for instant attraction, Lily, which did grow more quickly into love. Although I do love a slow burn, I wanted to get some good historical events and action in. I wanted to make sure Edward and Rosalyne let each other know of their strong feelings. They did love deeply and had one another’s backs. They needed to in order to navigate the political waters at the royal court!


I absolutely love the sound of this book and the time period sounds so interesting. I am putting this series on my wishlist. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

Oh my gosh. This book sounds so good! I really enjoy a medieval setting, but never purposefully seek them out. I think I need to start doing that. And reading more historical in general, as it’s a genre I love.

Great review! 🙂

Alexa Aston

I hope you’ll give this one a try, Angie. It’s a little different than some medieval because I’ve incorporated 14th century painting into it since my heroine is an artist. I also pull from Canterbury’s history and what was going on with the wall reconstruction and cathedral at that time. Give Love & Honor a try and let me know what you think!
