I will admit that I won this from the author herself on a blog contest but as a major fan of the series 1NS, I knew that it would be a good read. Good read doesn't even do the book justice. It was an awesome read. Casea hit all the major buttons for me, medieval, time-travel, comedy, chemistry beyond combustible and clear, crisp dialogue. As with all 1NS books, the plot and pacing are fast and honest. Yes, honest. I was immediately in Marianne's head and I never left it.
I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to know if the fairy tale of a night in shiny armor will come to the rescue of the damsel in distress. :)
