About the Book


I thoroughly enjoyed this book, getting to know the Margrave introduced in the first book, and seeing more of that book’s main characters. Many of the relationships among characters were highly believable, from the pettiness to the fear of discovery. And I loved how the author tied everything up at the end so we can continue on to the next book with one of these characters in a different area. If you enjoy simple, historical romances with a bit of suspense, brave knights and a couple of fair maidens, then this book is a good choice.


What happens when a margrave realizes he’s fallen in love with a servant?

The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride, fast. He invites ten noble-born ladies from around the country to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks, a time to test these ladies and reveal their true character.

Avelina is only responsible for two things: making sure her deception goes undetected and avoiding being selected as the margrave’s bride. Since the latter seems unlikely, she concentrates on not getting caught. No one must know she is merely a maidservant, sent by the Earl of Plimmwald to stand in for his daughter, Dorothea.

Despite Avelina’s best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she can’t deny her own growing feelings. But something else is afoot in the castle. Something sinister that could have far worse—far deadlier—consequences. Will Avelina be able to stop the evil plot? And at what cost?
