This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to. The narrator was able to give each character a distinct voice and bring about the emotions that each character was feeling as the went through different situations. Some of Lespada was typical, for example the arranged marriage, the bride and groom despising each other and pregnancy shortly after marriage.
I started out thinking that this was typical medieval romance, but that was not the case. This story surprised me with all its twist and turns. I especially liked how the author was able to show, and the narrator was able to capture, the emotions of Devereux when she found out disturbing information about her husband’s past.
This is not Christian fiction, but I love how the author showed that past transgressions can affect you and your spouse. And Kathryn Le Veque did an excellent job of showing how love can grow from an arranged marriage and how being honest and vulnerable with your spouse can be painful but also bring joy and freedom. I thought the love scenes between Davyss and Devereux were beautiful.
