Another beautifully written, emotionally charged novel by Jennifer Blake. This is a complex story with an exquisitely written plot, well developed characters, and heart wrenching truth.
I know that I keep repeating this in my reviews of Jennifer Blake's novels, but I was taken aback after purchasing one based on the description and finding the story I received instead.
She is a realist, and writes stories about flawed characters who manage to squeeze some kind of happiness in the end. The hero are normally a-holes, who you want to punch in the face. There is always a redeeming and wonderful male in the story who I desperately want the heroine to choose, but alas she does not.
Basically, the heroine follows her brother to a war campaign that ends up putting her in an impossible situation. The hero, well he just wants her, so he takes her. The rest of the publishers summary happens after the first 3/4 of the book.
I enjoyed the story for what it was, a compelling and truthful insight into two very complex fictional characters. Life isn't always a fairy tale, and Blake certainly gets that across.
Worth a credit for me, but if you like a lighter read...skip it.

Would you try another book from Jennifer Blake and/or Judith West?
Jennifer Blake - most definitely
Judith West - NO
What didn’t you like about Judith West’s performance?
The dialogue was horrible. Eleanora sounded like a 45 year old smoker (she was probably 18-19) and Grant sounded like Dudley DoRight. Wow! I wish she'd just read the dialogue parts straight if she couldn't do a better job.
Could you see Notorious Angel being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Would be a great mini-series. The history alone is fascinating.
