Synopsis:
Lady Sabine is harboring a skin blemish, one, that if revealed, could cause her to be branded as a witch, put her life in danger, and damage her chances of making a good marriage. After all, what nobleman would want to marry a woman so flawed?

Sir Bennet is returning home to protect his family from an imminent attack by neighboring lords who seek repayment of debts. Without fortune or means to pay those debts, Sir Bennet realizes his only option is to make a marriage match with a wealthy noblewoman. As a man of honor, he loathes the idea of courting a woman for her money, but with time running out for his family’s safety, what other choice does he have?

As Lady Sabine and Sir Bennet are thrust together under dangerous circumstances, will they both be able to learn to trust each other enough to share their deepest secrets? Or will those secrets ultimately lead to their demise?
Review:
Jody Hedlund has done a phenomenal job with this YA series! It is fun, has adventure, appropriate romance, and some fantastic characters that pop off the pages.

This series has been great! Starting off with an Uncertain Choice, then moving into A Daring Sacrifice, and now closing out with For Love and Honor. I love how they all tied together, but they could all stand alone.

I really enjoyed Sabine. She was a great strong character, who also knew how to your her sass and spunk. This story starts off with a robbery, and she wasn't going to stand for it. She let her opinion known. The rest of the story kept going from there. Sabine, used her inner strength for many things, but she was also a wonderful charter in that during her time, she was considered flawed by people, due to a birth mark. Everyone has something that has made with a blemish, but not everyone can see it, but there are people that it can be seen on, and it is about how it is handled.

We also got to see Sit Bennet again. He was one of the three knights from An Uncertain Choice. These guys have been fun and have all offered characteristics that could be characterized as swoon worthy.

Sabine and Bennett were a strong couple and they played well with their strengths, but also were a balance for their weakness.

It has been a fun medieval adventure with this series, and I can't wait to see what Jody Hedlund does next! She is an author who has an amazing gift. I'm so glad she wrote a series for YA.

Too Read!
