    Spoilers 3.5 StarsMuch better than the first book There is a little conflict and excitement The pace was faster, and the characters likeable.I enjoyed it.The beginning starts out great Gripping Then it kinda dipped down a bit and remained steady I did not skim.My main complaints is the hero seemed to wimp out on the heroine He should have tried harder to get her back and stop the wedding I seriously don t even know why he shows up at the weddng feast just to turn around and walk away This is love Then the heroine has to come to HIM after her husband dies Ok anyone reading this may be confused Lry mr clarify The heroine is captured on her way to a convent. after meeting the hero who is now a monk He was injured and in an infirmary when she was escorted to the convent.He finds out she s gone and sends his brother to intercept the escort but is too late and she is taken by her evil stepfather back home ands forced to marry and old abusive fat guy The hero knows who took her, and where, so he leaves the abbey and the monk life, gathers some people together and goes to the heroines rescue only to find she s already married and looks miserable It is her wedding feast So what does he do Nothing he goes home, and sulks that he lost her.She on the other hand avoids bedding the old guy and fortunately he ends up having a heart attack and dies This is when she runs to the hero.The good thing is the hero s past isn t thrown in our face There is only one part in the beginning where it is mentioned he is not a virgin but never pursued women and never love one before the heroine of course.Overall it was pretty good action wise I just wish the hero had a little backbone.Safety Hero Experienced but not overly Past not thrown in our face Not arrogant.Heroine Virgin and remains so until she is with the hero.Cheating NoOM OW Om but unwanted Heroine is forced to marry an old man He dies before consummating the marriage.Violence mildCursing NoAdultry NoRape NoAbuse noHEA ILY s yesMarriage YesBaby yes in the epilogue we see the H h s far future They have 12 kids.

    Little bit better than the first one I gave it an extra star due to the ale making process, which fascinated me When I read the first book I was pretty much disappointed and bored, but I thought of giving the second book a shot and maybe get to read something better I did, I read something better, but still not enough to make an impression on me.
