Centuries ago, valiant men and courageous women engaged in daring adventures as they helped their fellow man. In the country of Cordovia, the people enjoy their new-found liberty, but all is not well. A group of powerful men plan to take over the small country and replace the leader with a king.
With the help of a bold highwayman and a pastor’s daughter, they try to save their country from being taken over by a power-hungry leader. As they strive to stop the Kingmen and thwart their plans, Christine finds herself falling in love with Austin Knight. The only problem with their relationship is that she thinks he is her knight in shining armor instead of a highwayman. If she finds out his trade, what will her reaction be? As a pastor’s daughter, will love override her values?
I enjoyed this second book in the Rebel of Cordovia series with Austin Knight and Christine Griffiths as the main characters. Austin is the proverbial tall, dark and handsome hero, while Christine is a strong, independent, no nonsense, and multi-tasking pastor's daughter. She is a journalist exposing corruption in the government. Both of them are interested in justice for all in their country of Cordovia and have a growing interest in each other.
Some of the characters from the first book appear again, so we get to catch up with developments in their lives.
The story is a fight for right and justice that moves along quickly. There is intrigue, kidnapping and at the heart of it all a tender love story.
The author's notes about women journalists in history, plus the history of the waltz adds interesting tidbits to this historical romance. The author has a wonderful way of creating strong, independent women characters in all her books.
I wholeheartedly recommend this clean read.
