For Love & Honor
By Jody Hedlund
One had to marry for money. The other because no one else would have her.
Would they find love in such an unorthodox union?
Lady Sabine lived with the brand of a witch—a hideous blemish—all her life. Even though she tried to hide it, somehow it didn’t remain a secret. It will ruin her opportunities at love. Now her grandmother hears of a chance for her to marry, but will Sabine in her stubborn nature agree? Her grandmother devises a plan to get her to Maidstone under a false pretense hoping Sir Bennet can win Sabine’s heart.
Sir Bennet Windsor’s brother has squandered their riches and left Maidstone in dire straits and now the only hope to escape the evil clutches of Lord Pitt is an arranged marriage to get a wealthy dowry. When Lady Sabine arrives at his castle, he can’t help but be captivated by her spirited personality even though she isn’t what some would call beautiful. Can he set aside his guilt over having to marry for money and charm her?
Sabine and Bennet soon find themselves in a dangerous situation as Maidstone is under attack, but can they overcome the forces outside as well as the ones within their hearts?
For Love & Honor by Jody Hedlund is teen fiction at it’s best. I loved this story and read it in almost one sitting! It captivated me from the beginning and I couldn’t stop turning the pages. The plot line had me from the start.
This author has a way with words and is a great storyteller. The characters are solid. I loved both Sabine and Bennet. They have a way of getting into your heart.
The vivid imagery in this book had me picturing everything. From inside the castle to the art gallery Sabine and Bennet spent hours exploring.
This book has something for everyone. Love, humor, and suspense. It’s a great tale on how beauty is more than outer appearances. It’s what inside that counts.
I give For Love & Honor five stars. It’s a gem of a tale that will have you spellbound!
