The Knight’s Scarred Maiden (Lovers and Legends Series) by Nicole Locke

Knight's Scarred Maiden, The - Nicole Locke

From the publisher…

A maiden for the mercenary

Mercenary knight Rhain is living on borrowed time. With a vengeful warlord pursuing him, he has accepted his fate—though first he must get his men to safety.

When he rescues mysterious and deeply scarred Helissent from her attackers, Rhain soon wishes he wasn’t marked for death. He can never be the man she deserves—his scandalous lineage alone dictates that—but Rhain can’t resist the temptation to show this innocent maiden how beautiful she truly is…

Lovers and Legends A clash of Celtic passions

Gina’s thoughts…
I fell in love with Helissent and Rhain immediately and then I couldn’t help but root for them throughout the whole book.

Both characters are filled with self-hate from their flaws but are both so lovable, loyal, and courageous. They both fail to see the goodness in themselves but at least they can see that goodness in the other.

The plot is never slow and the secondary characters are quite lovable as well – even if they are mercenaries! I also loved the dialogue, especially whenever Helissent tried to use baking as a metaphor.

My only critique is that I was left a bit wanting towards the end. It felt like the end was wrapped up a little too quickly, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.

I am now hooked on Nicole Locke and intend to read every book in her “Lovers and Legends” series. If you like medieval romance, this will be a perfect read for you.
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
