Lynet Giffard's mixed blood has made her a foreigner among her own people. She has spent her entire life striving to appear quiet, demure, and subservient in an attempt to keep from drawing scrutiny. All that changes when she encounters Sir Jarin Maignart. He is an enemy of her people, and a treasonous murderer - yet those facts mean nothing when she uncovers the complex man inside. Her people scorn her for caring for him, yet no other man has ever seen her as more than a half-breed oddity. With him, she blossoms into the kind of woman she always wished she could be.
Jarin knows he has done nothing to deserve Lynet's love. A traitor and usurper, he has taken lives unjustly and committed treason against the realm. Yet, in Lynet he sees redemption and dares to hope he can become a better man. When a deadly plot against his family is uncovered, Jarin will face a choice between saving his own skin, or suffering the consequences of disobeying the terms of his banishment by returning home to set things right. Can the sullied knight atone for his sins and become worthy of forgiveness and love?

A LESS COMPLEX CAST AND A SUPERB STORY
I received this book from the author for an honest review through Audiobook Boom.
I was pleased to have Jarin's story continue with a HEA ending. He was so misunderstood and mislead by circumstances that I liked him despite his previous actions. Family love is strong and these books hail that message. I hope to learn more of the strong family bond between the three (bastard) brothers of different skin. Elise?
Narrator does excellent male voices, keeping them distinguishable even though there are many. Female voices, not so much. Maybe it's just the haughty inflection he gives them. We women don't sound like that!
All in all, 2 THUMBS UP!

Great addition to the series
Another fantastic addition to the series. Once again the story is well written, interesting, entertaining and very enjoyable. This story is a bit less complex than the full length novels but it is just as addicting. My only complaint is that it was to short. Love the world the author has created. This is one of those series that once you start you your hooked and can't wait for the next installment.
The whole series is absolutely worth your time and credit. Normally I don't listen to novellas from a series (under 5 hours) I wait for them to be compiled into one longer book, but Elise Marion knows how to write one heck of a story and I would make an exception for these novellas.
Eric Burns does a fantastic job once again with the narration. Nice vice. Great character voices. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Narration flowed smoothly. Very enjoyable listen. He is the voice of this series.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.
