S Baron Of Godsmere Baron of Godsmere and also held me captive in the morning thank goodness for lazy Saturdays to finish the tale A wonderfully woven story with a heroine who is feisty but not with that rebellious too stupid to live angle so many authors use today Reason and commonsense abounds along with hefty doses of danger intrigue and mystery that fueled my desire to read and the character s desire for ach other I give it five stars because it s been a long time since I read a story in under 12 hours. Vers he is ither much changed or much maligned And the real nemy is one who lurks in their midst One bent on keeping the feud burning NOTE BARON OF GODSMERE is a romance wrapped in an inspirational message true to the time period often referred to as “The Age of Faith” Due to an integral part of the plot that of a woman whose past causes her to fear Historical Evidences Of The Old Testament even a husband’s intimacy it isn't tied up with a bow too sweetly pretty to untie Hence due to the hero’sfforts to court his lady this romance is a “Clean Read” than an “Inspirational Read?. .
