BUY EXILE'S RETURN
"...There are lots of things I liked about this book. A heroine who grows in strength and confidence to demand what she deserves and hold out for it. A hero who started as a hardened man but gradually thawed when he saw what could be his and didn’t allow himself to sink to the level of his enemy. A country weary of wars, death, destruction and loss. Old wrongs are – for the most part – righted and justice is done. But everyone has suffered and some will live with things that will haunt them. Thanks for not buffing everything to a rosy glow or all the heartaches that had gone before would have been trivialized. This is a great return to the historicals I fondly remember with plots and meaning and emotion. B+" Jayne Dear Author
