She bound him in chains, he repaid her in kind, now she is bound to him, in more ways than one.
Caden Maignart must choose a wife and sire a son - a burden weighing heavily upon him as the firstborn son of a high lord. Weighing even more heavily is the notion of impending war, which has become a near certainty thanks to the volatile feud brewing between two families entrenched in hate. Caden knows that the key to mending things between their families lies in Lady Gwendolyn Toustain, the daughter of his family's mortal enemies, but earning her trust will prove to be an uphill battle.
Gwen trusted Caden, a mistake that led to her becoming his prisoner. All hope is lost when it comes to forging peace between their houses; unless she relents and agrees to marry her captor. While passion and desire led her into Caden's trap, Gwen is not certain she can bring herself to become his prisoner for life - in the bonds of holy matrimony.
Yet, the kingdom of Alemere is at stake, as are the lives of people they both love. Caden and Gwen will be forced to forge a path toward peace - not only within the realm, but within their complicated and volatile bond.
When the line becomes blurred between captor and captive, who will be the first to bend?

EXCELLENT SEQUEL THAT PULLS ALL PARTS TOGETHER
I was given this book by the author, as well as book one, in order that I may experience the full story after receiving book three through Audiobook Boom for an honest review.
The cast of characters is large so it's important to listen to the books in succession. Elise Marion does a skillful job in tying together the intricate webs of betrayal and hatred from book one. I still applaud her portrayal of Gwen as her personal strength of character never wavers. Neither MC falls from their perfectly scripted personalities. I really enjoyed the playfulness between them once their union is solidified.
As in the first book, Eric Burns did a fantastic job rendering the male voices. And, as in the first book, his female voices weren't to my liking. He will be a force in the dual narration stories; count on it.
I love the world created and look forward to future books about the characters I've come to know. Thank you, Elise, for allowing me the full experience. I've already listened to the next book and am pleased to be about to write a good review on it, also!

I've never read the print version and it all depends on the person which is better. I am one of those people that is happy with both, but it would be a good read which ever way you want to read it.
One of the biggest moments in my mind is one of the biggest giveaways about the book so I won't say it i'll just say you need to remember the great hall and leave it at that.
I loved all the bantering between the different characters. I don't have any one favorite moment I just prefer the moments that make me smile
This is an awesome story from happy to sad and exciting to shocking. The entire time I was listening I could barely do anything else. I loved every moment of the story and at times it was hard to remember that it is supposed to be a historical romance instead of a modern day one. If you read this story and don't fall in love with it you don't know a good book when you find one.
