First in the Crowns Legacy series.

She isn’t a beautiful young maiden hoping to erase the Commander’s memory.
Opal Whilstead knows she has a reputation: a reputation as a bright, giving, upright woman—smiling and laughing her way through hopeless spinsterhood. It’s been so long since she’s had serious feelings for a man, but now she finds herself taken with the Commander Exemplar of Diachona’s army.

And she regrets it.

Not only is the Exemplar a widower still longing for his wife, but he’s the father of the reigning king. Even if a man of such prestige could find love again, he’d be unlikely to search for it among the kingdom’s old maids. Besides, Opal dreads being found, due to a grievous secret she carries…

This book is inspirational historical fantasy: fictional history that takes place in a completely fictional world. The background of this story comes further to light in The Movement of Crowns Series, which is great to read before or after this book.

My thoughts:

I enjoyed this quick read of romance blooming later in life.

Opal is a wonderful character full of life but doesn’t really believe she will find love. But then the young prince curls up on her lap and she finds a glimpse of it there.

Then Staid isn’t sure if he wants romance again, at least he doesn’t want it thrown at him and his eyes begin to open to Opal.

A nice read and a very quick one at that.

Grab your copy at Amazon or your favorite retailer.

A copy of this book was given to me by the author. All opinions are my own.
