Duty to King

Tomas Dyrease, the newly made Earl of Irvaine and the village of Wisenvale, owes his good fortune to his king and the recent civil war. When his benefactor demands Tomas marry the cousin of a noble, he obeys. However, no one warned him that she wasn’t a typical noblewoman.

Duty to Others

Brielle Solarius struggles to keep her village from starvation under the new Lord Wisten, her cousin. The men rode off to war and never returned. The remaining women and children face a dire winter if they do not find a solution soon. When she learns her cousin sold her into marriage to save his life, she isn’t surprised. However, she is taken aback by Lord Irvaine’s unpolished ways. Was this man a noble or a foot soldier?

Duty to Each Other

Bound by the words of their vows, they face a rough future. They must forge a marriage while battling betrayal, accusations of treason, and villains from the past. Survival depends on their precarious trust in each other. Failure could mean death.

***#NerdGirlSara’s Review***
Duty is one of those slow burn love stories where it takes time for our hero and heroine to live and trust for one another, I love these types of realistic stories where there’s no convenient insta-love. Instead in Duty, Brielle is forced into a marriage by her cousin to newly appointed Earl Tomas after a devastating civil war. They’re forced together by duty and drawn closer and closer together by the terrible situations they must overcome as a team. I really liked Tomas he was a very honorable man and Brielle was not your typical historical romance heroine.

Duty started out great! I sped through the first few chapters, completely enthralled but then Duty did start to drag for me around 20% through and it continued to do so until around 60% through, it took me a few weeks and putting it downvand coming back to it a few times but then it picked up again. The last 40% of the book really saved it though!

I give it 3.5 stars! If you like historical romance and a clean love story, Duty is definitely recommended!
