1586 – London, England
Sixteen-year-old Mercy Hart is the daughter of one of London’s richest – and strictest – cloth merchants.
Kit Turner is an actor and the illegitimate son of the late Earl of Dorset. A chance encounter finds Kit falling for the beautiful Mercy’s charms, but their love is forbidden. A merchant’s daughter and a vagabond – it simply cannot be.
If Mercy chooses Kit she must renounce her family name and leave her home. Will she favour duty over true love, or will she give Kit his heart’s desire?
Every time I review these books I say the same thing, and I’m afraid I’m going to again. I LOVE this series! Set in Tudor England and following the stories of the delicious Lacey Brothers and the girls they love, Eve Edwards’ novels are rich, fun, accessible historical fiction and a treat to read.
If you’ve yet to pick up this series, then don’t hesitate any longer. Every book leaves me with a smile on my face and has me enthralled throughout. With one last brother to hear from I’m hoping it won’t be too long before we get the next installment!
Thanks to the publishers for providing a copy for review.
