Adam Quintin, a man for hire has some secrets to hide, and some things to prove. Not only to himself, but to the people around him. Banished from his home, Ravenswood at a young age he returns to win back his home and unearth a wood be traitor to the crown. Joan Swan, daughter to the Master of the Hunt at Ravenswood is self reliant, clever and on a mission to make sure that her father does not get thrown from his position.

“For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo” William Shakespeare wrote it first. Forbidden love. Hard not to enjoy a fascinating tale of two people who can’t help but fall in love. Even when all odds are against them, and everything tells them not too.

This was a well thought out story, that took a few chapters to get into the swing of things. Joan was a stunning character. Determined to prove herself and protect her father. She is not only beautiful, but rather clever. I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her through out the entire book. Especially when she fights her feelings for Adam.

Adam on the other hand, was a bit of a rogue. I couldn’t fall for him as I normally do for the male leads. Obstinate, stubborn and sometimes out right stupid. I did however, respect his command over his men at arms and the respect he governed from them.

I loved their scenes together. I loved the way I was able to, after awhile immerse myself completely into the history of it all. All in all a pretty lovable book.
