The year is 1390. Lady Rosemarie Montfort is one month away from her eighteenth birthday. Her parents died four years earlier and upon their death she learned that they had made a sacred vow that stated she must enter the convent upon turning eighteen.
On her eighteenth birthday she would also take on full leadership of running the lands she had inherited from her parents. For the past four years she had been running the lands with the help and guidance of Abbot Francis Michael. She was more than ready to do away with his assistance since they often disagreed, especially when it came to her determination to be a kind, compassionate and generous ruler. He did not like that she spent so much money assisting the poor and that she forbade the sheriff from torturing criminals.
With only a month to go before entering a life of celibacy in the convent Rosemarie has accepted her fate. However, a visit from a dear family friend may change everything. He has discovered that there is an exception to the vow. If Lady Rosemarie is able to find true love and marry before her birthday, she will be released fron the vow. To that end, he has brought his three most noble and trust-worthy knights with him. He proposes that the three men spend the month vying for her affection in the hope that she will fall in love with one of them.
A month to find true love? It seems impossible. Or is it?
This is a fun read. What young woman could resist the attentions of three handsome young knights? The fact that all three are trying to win her heart makes it seem like a medieval version of the television show The Bachelorette.
This book would be the perfect March Break beach read. It’s light subject matter and romantic theme make it the ultimate vacation book. Maybe it will even inspire those vacationing readers to take a chance on a holiday romance. Who knows, they may even find their own true love.
I rate this book as 4 out of 5 stars.
