Series: The Prince of Whispers, #2
Release Date: July 12, 2022
Two months after marrying Crispin, Ruby is still having a hard time fitting into her new role as Queen of Meradin, especially since she hasn’t seen Crispin since their wedding day. And her stress and worry increase when her maid Ivy says she believes Ruby is pregnant. Upset and feeling lonely, she leaves the castle to visit her adoptive mother and finds her at the monastery with her friend Brother James. She is on her way back to the castle when Crispin finds her and escorts her home.
Crispin has been searching for answers about Ruby’s past and the murder of her parents, but after two months and no answers, he was eager to get back to his bride. But his reunion is not what he expected and he cannot understand why Ruby seems to have hardened her heart against him, yet seemed so comfortable with Brother James, irked and jealous, he sends Henry to investigate the monk and ends up getting the shock of his life when Henry uncovers the badly scarred monk’s true identity!
What follows is an incredibly well-written tale of shocking revelations, secrets, betrayal, steamy love scenes, sigh-inducing love, heartache, and ending with a cliffhanger that leaves the reader desperate for the next installment! Seriously, I cannot even remember the last time I was so invested in a series – seriously, this series has been amazing and I cannot wait for the final installment! This story picks up where the last book ended, so I would strongly suggest reading “His Wicked Whispers” which is the first book in the Prince of Whispers series, before reading this book as it is an ongoing serial intended to be read in order.
