Product Description

Product Description

The Earl of Dentin excels in his position as Securer of the Realm. But the king’s order to pluck an orphaned child from a loving home unsettles Dentin. When a dark-eyed woman challenges his honor regarding the mission, Dentin finds himself unable to justify his actions or get her out of his mind. Something about her lack of fear intrigues him.

Lady Elsa Reeve attempts to avoid the marriage of convenience her brother and mother demand of her. She understands the need to pay off her brother's massive debt. She only wants her family to consider her wishes in the process.

As Elsa becomes further entangled in a snare of her brother’s creating, only one man defends her. But can she trust Dentin, her unlikely champion, and his motives? With a murderer on the loose, Elsa’s fate in jeopardy, and a traitor plotting against the king, Dentin finds his priorities shifting in an unexpected direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Duty 20 March 2015
By Sarah - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Age Appropriate For: 13 and up for romance
Best for Ages: 15 and up for romance

Since I really enjoyed Duty, I jumped at the chance to review Honor. After all, I love how Rachel writes her romances. Yes, maybe there is a little more pre-marital kissing than I would choose to have in my life, but they are clean and sweet stories with characters that you can really cheer for.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, as Elsa and Dentin deal with foes that come in many forms. I really hated every time I had to put down the book and work on a different task for any amount of time. It is one of those books that keeps you flipping pages to find out what is going to happen next.

Elsa was a sweet girl who is trying to save her family from the ruin her brother’s gambling has brought. She was such a well-developed character that felt very real. Her sweetness was what really stood out to me. So many female leads are I-can-do-it-myself type girls, and, while I don’t have a problem with that, it gets old. While Elsa did a lot, she allowed others to help her.

Dentin was pretty awesome himself. He was a man of honor (the title really does tell you a lot), who is a bit rough around the edges. No, he isn’t mean, he just isn’t sociable, but he finds himself drawn to helping Elsa and loses his heart in the process. I really liked what Rossano did with his character.

I cannot say enough about this story. It was just such a joy to read. It had an historical feel to it, even though it was really non-magical fantasy. It also had a faith element that wasn’t strong, but added a nice touch.

I highly recommend this to those who like romance, good writing, and books that keep you turning pages.

I received this book from author in exchange for my honest review. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are entirely my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love story that touched my old heart. 2 March 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I truly am not a huge reader of historical romance, I mean (speaking just for my self) how many power hungry King's, womanizing Duke's, Earl's and court politics can you read about and not fall asleep? Honor was different for me. It was truly about doing the right thing, following your heart, and falling in love. Yeah, you still had a King hollering in the back ground, but the story was focused on Elsa and Dentin. I truly enjoyed their story very much, and would recommend the book highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clean Medieval Romance 27 February 2015
By MedievalHistorian - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
13+ for mild to moderate violence.
15+ for pre-marital kissing and some adult themes.

When Rachel Rossano asked me to beta read her newest title, Honor, I was very pleased to do so. I had heard some great things about her books before and was very happy to peruse one of them myself.

Honor is a fantasy title centered around an authentic-feeling medieval country. While the story is not historical, many aspects of it closely follow true medieval traditions and modes of life. Since my usual genre is historical-fiction, I was pleased to find that (minus detailed descriptions) the story bordered more on historical-fiction than fantasy.

I have to say I really enjoyed the plot. The suspense kept me turning pages, but was not overly intense. I loved the protagonists and the antagonists really riled me! Elsa's predicaments and struggles at the hands of her craven brother; Dentin's struggles with finding himself in love and caught between his conscience and duty to a honor-less king; the overall picture of two people finding each other in the midst of their trials and a nation's conflict - everything tied together to create an enjoyable tale. Parts of it reminded me of El Cid and one man's commitment to honor. Without giving too much away, allow me to say that the story contains all of the trimmings of a good tale - romance, adventure, battles, danger, and just enough of the twists and turns of human emotion to cause one to really relate to the characters.

The one thing I was slightly uncomfortable with was the pre-marital kissing. Yes, they were betrothed, but, as this was not a real medieval tale where betrothal was basically marriage, I felt it went a bit far. However, Rossano's discretion with all other aspects of the marital relationship made up for it.

The vast amount of characters might confuse some readers, but this is easily remedied by referring back to the character list. Personally, I really liked many of the secondary characters, especially squire Reginald. I'd be very happy if the next title in this series was about him!

I enjoyed the story and am happy to finally find a fantasy I can endorse to others! I look forward to Rossano's next title with eager anticipation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance and Intrigue! 26 February 2015
By Kendra E. Ardnek - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading and reviewing Duty, the first novel of Rhynan, I was eager to learn what happened next, and was thrilled when the author offered me a review copy. It did take me a while to actually get to read the story, but that was not for lack of eagerness. I just had a VERY busy last two weeks.

Once I opened up the book and immersed myself, I couldn't put it down ... except that I had to go to bed. First thing the next morning, I was reading again, and was finished by noon. The plot twisted here and there, and while I'll admit that I could see where it was going by the time I was halfway through the book, things were just so convoluted, I still couldn't put it down!

Dentin, the hero, is not a young man, nor does he have many friends. As the Securer of the Realm, he holds many secrets, and has gained more than his share of enemies as he performs the king's bidding. And, as the book opens, he fears making an enemy out of one of the few friends he has, as the king desires to take custody of the child Sir Irvaine and his wife have been fostering, and thus gain a level of control over him.

Elsa, the heroine, is caught in a situation typical of medieval heroines. Though her father has promised her choice in her marriage, her brother wants to marry her off to pay his "debts of honor," and her mother is pressuring her to marry soon - after all, her younger sister has just been married, why hasn't she?

Normally, their paths wouldn't cross, nor would he take especial notice of her ... but she has taken interest in the young boy he must pluck from his foster parents and - though she doesn't know it - has become entangled in a plot involving the princess herself. Although he's just trying to keep her safe, he finds himself caring for her - as he has never cared for a woman before.

When her father's murdered, the game changes completely. Her previous marriage choices disappear as her brother promises her to one of the most despicable men in the kingdom, thus dooming her to a life of misery.

Compared to the previous book, this story had the better plot. As much as I loved Duty, there were a few moments I lost track of what was going on. With Honor, I was frustrated by the multitude of secrets, but I always had a firm grasp of what was going on. Part of this was the fact that we had narration from both the hero and the heroine. I would have preferred it if the author hadn't used first person for both of them, but it was well marked, and there were only a few times where I lost track of who "I" was.

I will say that I preferred the romance of the first book, however. Elsa and Dentin were sweet, but I think it went a bit too fast, especially for two people who didn't fall in love easily. Also, Dentin called himself "unmarriagable" because of something in his past, but I don't think we ever learned exactly what it was. I would have liked a bit more closure in that area.

Worldbuilding was well-done. It's set in a fictional medieval set of countries that, apart from the fact that didn't actually exist, could well be our own world. We see more into the politics and power-play in this book, and I enjoyed seeing how she built the laws of her country.

I loved the story, just as I have loved everything else of Rossano's work that I have read. I'm thoroughly looking forward to the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome romance with few dirty details 4 July 2015
By B. Mulder - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It is rated YA and really sticks to it. Yes, there is passion and the attraction between the hero and heroine is very much there, but the adult details are left to the imagination which is very refreshing. To me it was like oh my, he’s going to kiss her! Darn it they closed the curtain! I found that it did not detract from the story at all and actually left more room for the plot to hold me captivated. There are many layers to Elsa and Simon’s story and I find myself wondering about the full story of Simon’s past. I have not read the first book so this was my introduction to Rhynan and its people. I loved the way the author gave details about the characters’ pasts without making them big long paragraphs that interrupted the story. It was quick little tidbits that let you know what was influencing their thinking. It made the story flow nicely for me since I was new to the series. I also enjoyed the way the book went back and forth between the hero and heroines’ perspective on what was happening. While usually this means that the same story is shared twice this time it helped keep things moving and let you know exactly what was going on because of the various things happening in secret with each character. It is very well done. I don’t really have anything big to complain about. There are no major typos or grammar issues to bother the reader and detract from the story. The beginning of the story didn’t hook me right away as I had to wait a little bit to figure out what was going on, but once I caught on to the fact that there was secrets on both sides I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen. It is sad to think that family members would treat each other the way that is shown in some parts of the book but sadly it does happen. These moments are handled well, and with just enough truth to make an impression, but not make them the focus of the story.
