The opening chapter of this book is just hilarious as medieval housewives fight in the street to get hold of some dirty poems. When Kathryn le Veque decides to write humour, she is very good at it. There is nothing funnier than her deadpan tone as she recounts some truly crazy scenes.
The author of the rude words is the book’s heroine Cadelyn, a women who fights her fate. The man dragging her along to an arranged political marriage is Kress, a tough guy knight who does dirty work for the nation’s kingmakers. I normally dislike political thrillers but I ate up every plot turn in this truly entertaining novel.
If you are looking for a unique kind of hero, look elsewhere. Kress is a standard le Veque leading man with big muscles a square jaw and a sense of duty. But his clashes with spirited Cadelyn are full of growing emotional intensity. This is good reading if you want some history, a splash of romance and a few belly laughs.
