Rhianna is forced into a marriage with a man she is not sure she can trust or if she should.  What she doesn’t expect is for her feelings to change towards him.  Rhianna knows that her husband’s father killed her mother but is her husband like his father or is he a completely different man?  As she gets to know Robert better she finds him to be a man that she can love until what Robert feels is her betrayal threatens the happiness the have found with each other. 

Robert feels that Rhianna and he have had enough bitterness in their lives due to his father killing her mother.  Robert is drawn to Rhianna and he is determined that the past should be just that the past, but he is afraid that his father’s curse now lies on him and that he may never get away from it.  There are those that say Rhianna is a sorceress but can she free him from his curse and more importantly will she be willing to after the past? 

Now Robert and Rhianna are going to have to find their way back to each other if they are going to have the happiness they both want and that was theirs in the beginning.  While working through the obstacles that stand in their way Rhianna is finding out that the power that her mother had is now hers to command if she can just figure out how to control it.

This is the start of a trilogy that will have readers eagerly waiting for the next book.  The story brings the time period to life for the reader and the reader will have a hard time putting down the story as it pulls the reader in and refuses to let go.  While this has a nice ending this story is definitely open at the end so hopefully the reader will find out more about Rhianna and Robert in the next book.  There are scenes in this story that may disturb some readers but it is one book that is worth picking up and reading. 

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
