What Am I Reading Now?

Well, I'm sorry to say that Frontier Wolf by Rosemary Sutcliff will not be living on my keeper shelf. Ultimately, it was just too grim for me. If you read the reviews on Goodreads you'll find I'm in a minority with that opinion, but nevertheless, for me personally it's not a keeper. You can read my review on Goodreads if you want, but be forewarned: It's full of spoilers! (It's marked with a spoiler warning, though, so you can't read it unless you want to.)

My new read is called The Unveiling, by Tamara Leigh. This is an inspirational medieval romance. Here's the back cover blurb:

12th century England: Two men vie for the throne: King Stephen the usurper and young Duke Henry the rightful heir. Amid civil and private wars, alliances are formed, loyalties are betrayed, families are divided, and marriages are made.

For four years, Lady Annyn Bretanne has trained at arms with one end in mind—to avenge her brother’s murder as God has not deemed it worthy to do. Disguised as a squire, she sets off to exact revenge on a man known only by his surname, Wulfrith. But when she holds his fate in her hands, her will wavers and her heart whispers that her enemy may not be an enemy after all.

Baron Wulfrith, renowned trainer of knights, allows no women within his walls for the distraction they breed. What he never expects is that the impetuous young man sent to train under him is a woman who seeks his death—nor that her unveiling will test his faith and distract the warrior from his purpose.

Stop by on Tuesday and I'll share a Tuesday Teaser with you!
