Devil’s Moon (Border Nights, #2)

★★★

22675978[1]By Amanda Scott

A Warrior’s Promise

The last place Sir David “Devil” Ormiston expected his moonlight chase of a horse thief to end was in a lady’s bedchamber. He is shocked to find that the raider he has pursued is no man, but a defiant beauty in disguise – and the woman he’s vowed to protect at all costs. Face to face with a girl Dev thought he knew, the ever confident, marriage-resistant knight may learn that he is defenseless against the desirable woman she has become.

A Lady’s Secret

Lady Robina Gledstanes will do anything to keep her family’s land out of the hands of her greedy kinsmen – except willingly submit to the handsome, cocksure Devil Ormiston. Dev’s help may be just as dangerous as the threats lurking outside her castle. But when enemies scheme to steal the castle’s treasure, Robina must risk losing something even more precious – her heart.

My review

I don’t know why, but the writing style and I definitely didn’t click. It felt old-fashioned, I realize the story plays out in 14 something, but I had a hard time connecting. Kind of like reading Shakespeare in the original. I’m sure some people will adore this writing style and the frequent use of time authentic expressions. I tried and failed.
