About the Book

Lady Sabine is harboring a skin blemish, one, that if revealed, could cause her to be branded as a witch, put her life in danger, and damage her chances of making a good marriage. After all, what nobleman would want to marry a woman so flawed?

Sir Bennet is returning home to protect his family from an imminent attack by neighboring lords who seek repayment of debts. Without fortune or means to pay those debts, Sir Bennet realizes his only option is to make a marriage match with a wealthy noblewoman. As a man of honor, he loathes the idea of courting a woman for her money, but with time running out for his family’s safety, what other choice does he have?

As Lady Sabine and Sir Bennet are thrust together under dangerous circumstances, will they both be able to learn to trust each other enough to share their deepest secrets? Or will those secrets ultimately lead to their demise?

My Thoughts on For Love and Honor

This book is sweet as can be.

Lady Sabine isn’t a beauty, and she has a large purple birthmark on her arm that labels her as a witch. Lord Bennett is as handsome as a man can be, but he’s also honorable, passionate, and loyal. When the two of them get pushed together by circumstances beyond their control, they’re surprised to find themselves falling for each other.

This is a good book to read if you like Melanie Dickerson’s YA novels. It has the same sweet feel to it. It’s the third book in a series, but it can be read on its own.

If you’re looking for a clean book for your teen or you enjoy slightly sappy romances where nothing too bad happens, For Love and Honor is a wonderful choice. It’s perfect for the teen crowd or anyone that enjoys fairy tale retellings and squeaky clean, sweet romance novels.

Definitely recommended!

Content: Mild peril and a few chaste kisses (boy/girl).

    I see the imminent romance from a mile away! She looks like a beauty on the cover but of course covers don’t have to be exactly the same as the character. I like the plot already and the romance. I will have to add this to my tbr list right now (:

      I think you’d like this one, Adriana. It’s very sweet. And even though there are some tense situations in the story, the tension is kept moderate.

    I’m glad you enjoyed this one! I loved the last book in this series, which I think will remain my favorite, but I plan on reading this one too.

      I have the first two books in the series, but I haven’t read them yet. Hopefully I can read them soon!
