When you're enemies, does love have a fighting chance?
For Amiria of Berwyck, defeat does not come easily as she watches her home and clan being ripped asunder. When the very enemy who has laid siege to her home demands her fealty, she will do whatever it takes to protect her people including a hastily concocted ruse that quickly begins to unravel. All too soon, she starts to question whether she can forgive herself for betraying those she has sworn to protect.
Dristan of Blackmore, champion knight of King Henry II, has a reputation to uphold as the Devil's Dragon. After his invading army conquers Berwyck castle, he sets out to manage the newly claimed estate by training its knight in the art of proper defense. At first, everything appears as it should be, or is it? Betrayed by those he believed he could trust, he must first set aside his anger before he can make room in his heart for love.
Together they are tied by an unspoken bond. As they begin to rebuild the land and unite their people, forces beyond their control attempt to tear apart their fragile truce and only time will tell if love will forever bring them together.
Entertaining historical read. Intriguing and interesting story full of drama, lies, secrets, and romance. Wonderful characters to follow through the story. Good read.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
First I’d like to say that I really love the cover of this book. Sherry Ewing is a new author to me. And while there were some things in this story that were not plausible the overall story and storyline was very good. I would certainly read other books by this author.
Both Amiria of Berwyck and Dristan of Blackmore were interesting characters I found myself liking. Amiria is is strong and brave and her goal is to take care of her people. Dristan is an honorable, strong yet capable of gentleness knight in service to his king, King Henry II. Their journey to happily ever after was frought with anger, fear, passion and emotions.
I enjoyed the story but it did have some editing issues that were a bit distracting but was still an enjoyable read.
Thank you Sherry for this wonderful story.
You Must Read This Book!
Not everything is how it appears. You will understand what I am saying when you read this book and you must read it! If My Heart Could See You by Sherry Ewing is book 1 in The MacLaren's series. To be honest this is the first book I have read of Sherry’s but I can tell you it won’t be the last and I am so looking forward to reading book 2. Sherry has such an amazing way of writing the littlest details so that you get the full picture and story. Her characters are just wonderful and you can’t help falling in love with them as you travel back to 1174 Scotland’s border. This story has betrayal, evil, greed, death, battles, capture, jealousy, kindness, duty, understanding, rape, forgiveness and yes love. What a great read! I highly recommend this book you won’t be disappointed.
