I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review. I’m also using affiliate links.
Have you ever began a series of novels, and read them one by one as each was released by the author? Or do you wait to binge on an entire series after all of the stories have been released? I do both, but when I wait and read them as they’re available I tend to forget what happened in the beginning. Am I the only one?
I may forget a character here or there, or not quite remember why someone did what they did. However, the YA series An Uncertain Choice by Jody Hedlund, I remembered everything in clear detail, although I read each as they were released over the last few years. She is a brilliant author who doesn’t overcomplicate her stories with unnecessary details or over produced characters. Every book in this series is memorable and smooth, and it’s one I’d recommend to anyone who loves clean medieval romance.
The final book, For Love and Honor, is the icing on the cake. It’s a truly a beautiful ending to a series I didn’t want to end.
About For Love and Honor
Lady Sabine is harboring a skin blemish, one, that if revealed, could cause her to be branded as a witch, put her life in danger, and damage her chances of making a good marriage. After all, what nobleman would want to marry a woman so flawed?
Sir Bennet is returning home to protect his family from an imminent attack by neighboring lords who seek repayment of debts. Without fortune or means to pay those debts, Sir Bennet realizes his only option is to make a marriage match with a wealthy noblewoman. As a man of honor, he loathes the idea of courting a woman for her money, but with time running out for his family’s safety, what other choice does he have?
As Lady Sabine and Sir Bennet are thrust together under dangerous circumstances, will they both be able to learn to trust each other enough to share their deepest secrets? Or will those secrets ultimately lead to their demise?
For Love and Honor is an easy read that transports you to the world of knights and noble ladies, medieval castles, and of course danger. The characters are well developed and personable, both perfectly imperfect, and easily relatable. This story is clean, but still holds true to a romance appropriate for a YA reader. Sir Bennet and Lady Sabine both hold strong moral convictions, and both are very intelligent. At no point was this story boring or juvenile, and the flow of the plot was seamless. The danger that they face together was a real concern, and I wasn’t quite sure how they would even overcome the situation, but the solution was brilliant.
While I know all good things must come to an end, I would love revisiting the world of the three noble knights and their ladies that we met throughout the three novels and the novella prequel. But if that never happens in a spin off or cross over series, this was a solid finish and great way to say goodbye.
