Happy Medieval Monday! Having just finished reading this thoroughly enjoyable, medieval romance, I thought it a perfect time to share a little information about it, along with my review.
Friends becoming lovers in the middle of the Hundred Years War.
Catriona has been in love with Sebastian all her life. But the rakish future Earl of Whitley has eyes for every woman – except his best friend. Then one day, against all odds, he proposes to her to save her from marriage to a man who scares her.
Or so she thinks…
It will come as a bitter blow to realise that he only did so to gain back his inheritance. Can a woman deeply in love with her husband accept the fact that she has only been married to be used as a brooding mare? What will it take for Sebastian to realise that what he feels for his wife is love of the deepest kind?
His departure for war will precipitate them into a whirlwind of self-discovery and when secrets are revealed, Catriona and Sebastian will have no choice but to accept what they cannot change.
Wedded to Her Golden Knight by Virginie Marconato is a tender and unexpected romance. Set in England during the 100 Years War, the historical aspect is excellent and the medieval ambience lends a poetic beauty to the tale.
At the beginning of the story, our heroine Catriona loves her knight with an idealism and naivete that's a bit unfair to him. While Sebastian is a gentleman and has affection for her, he's completely oblivious to her feelings. He's full of energy and ambition and doesn’t have the time, expectation, or desire for true love in his life. Until he does...
The character development in the story is exceptional. Catriona and Sebastien are young and passionate. They both focus on their own, individual hopes, dreams, and feelings without giving the other's due consideration. It's realistic, and the ending is all the sweeter for it.
Life being life, everything changes. The characters grow in depth and maturity right before our eyes.
The love scenes are lusty and fun as well as tender.
Wedded to Her Golden Knight is a satisfying and deliciously medieval romance.
Available at Amazon. Free with Kindle Unlimited.

It's no secret that I prefer fat HEAs. Where better than in a beautiful romance?
