Forbidden Vow by Diana CosbyForbidden 3I really enjoyed this book Why I think it was a believable historical romance than some and I really liked the characters Aiden MacConnell takes on the guise of a fallen enemy warrior so that he and his two companions can easily scout out a castle for Robert the Bruce He knew he would be pretending to be another man betrothed to the woman in charge of the castle but the surprise and rather immediate marriage that ensued did throw him a bit As a man of honor he managed to maintain propriety butjust barelyand he is definitely attracted to her Gwendolyn Murphy is no shrinking virginal violet Nope she is adept at many things and handy with weapons of war She wants what is best for those that serve her and ready if not eager to marry again Aiden is not what she expected and as she gets to know him she begins to like then love him This story has a slow growing love a fight some running for their lives fighting and two marriages before the hero and heroine finally get their HEA The main male characters appear to be Knights Templar who were not killed in France but instead made it away to protect the treasures of the Templars I am not sure how many books there are in this series but look forward to reading the next one 4 5 Stars I really enjoyed this story I think the author captured the chivalry and honor a Templar would possess and placed him in a very tempting situationAiden watches as a friend from his youth dies and promises to deliver his missive to Gwendolyn of Latharn Castle But he decides to take his friend s identity since she had never met her betrothed to obtain information on the castle for Robert the Bruce They must take over Latharn Castle before Comyn s men arrive to do the same The strategic location of this castle was important to the Bruce and the future of ScotlandThere were many surprises along their journey to their HEA and just when you think things have calmed another stumble crosses their path I love stories of witty strong fierce women and Gwendolyn fits that bill Aiden immediately won my heart and proved over and over again that his word was his honorMy favorite line in the book wasYou canna kiss me like that and then stop Gwendolyn speakingI can and I did he grunted At least we will both suffer this nightI was given an ARC for an honest review I would rate this book 48 stars and recommend it What will you sacrifice for a future filled with loveLady Gwendolyn Murphy of Latham Castle has had to fight for every ounce of freedom she has gained since the death of her father and

lots of action secrets and betrayal The chemistry between Aiden and Gwendolyn is apparent but the love scenes are mild and few and far between I enjoyed the book but a couple of things seemed off first Aiden is a Templar Knight and has been since he was little than a boy but he seems very knowledgeable about intimate relations and second the cover of this book is decidedly not medieval normally I don t really care about the covers but if someone was to look at this cover there is no way they would know this book was a medieval the gown the lovely model is wearing makes the book appear to be a regency era storyI did enjoy this story and would recommend it it is the third book in the series but it could be read as a stand alone title with no problemI am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC that was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher Forbidden Vow by Diana Cosby is the first book I have read by the author I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading of
