The woman shoved the crock into her apron pocket. There are just teeny tiny tidbits that I myself would have interpreted differently that I just don't quite enjoy as much.

Possible ex library copy, thatâ ll have the markings and stickers associated from the library. If I had known you were in town, I would have waited for you. But can she trust a man like Rath Talward…or will he prove an even greater threat to her quest? A sex scene and the book ends, for the important they-love-each-other has been proven true! So it is, Uncle…but the message? I believe she died of a broken heart. It's not the 100% most original plot to go by, but it definitely has some twists and turns that keeps one interested in the story. We are told things again and again.
The book revolves almost exclusively around Maura and Rath--and their quest to find the Waiting King--for the overwhelming majority of the story. I have only read the authors Christian stories so I guess I was surprised to see it. But how much is she willing to sacrifice to win their freedom? What she truly wanted was a little time, peace and privacy to absorb everything Langbard had told her about her past…and her future. Together, they will reclaim and restore his kingdom.

The constant bickering between the heroine and hero in the beginning was a little tiring, but I enjoyed watching them come to understand and trust one another.

Only the reader and a select few knew that they were the fulfillment of the prophecy. She headed for the door. This book has received mixed reviews, but I guess it was what I expected and what I was looking for when I picked it up, so I thought it was enjoyable! A bedtime tale like all the others he had told her over the years.
Maura could not keep a tender, dreamy note from her voice. Legend claims the mystical warrior will deliver Embria from its conquerors and Maura will be his consort.
