My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Same old same old but still not the same😊
Heroine disguised as a boy, used in many books
compromised and forced to marry, of course again used in many books
misunderstandings and not taking openly about feelings, again have read it countless times.
But in spite of all this, the story is charming and fun. The chemistry is excellent and both Joan and Cam are endearing characters, the small mystery element added layer to the story and love scenes were incredible. There was no gradual falling in love, it was instant attraction followed by love, forced wedding and then the realization of love and respect between them. I loved how the heroine is ignorant in many ways expected for a noble lady but she’s a great healer and thus able to save Cam’s life when he gets injured trying to save Jo’s life.
In all, an enjoyable fare in this genre.
