    This is the first book I have read by this author, but it definitely will not be the last!! Alexa Aston has a way of pulling you into the story with her great descriptions and history while bringing the characters alive. This is a tale of Edward de Montfort, a fierce knight that has been sent on a secret mission by the King. He comes from a strong, large family and he hopes that after this mission he will be able to return home and settle down.

Alexa Aston has a way of pulling you into the story with her great descriptions and history while bringing the characters alive. This is a tale of Edward de Montfort, a fierce knight that has been sent on a secret mission by the King. He comes from a strong, large family and he hopes that after this mission he will be able to return home and settle down. Our heroine Lady Rosalyne Parry is on a secret mission of her own! Living with her uncle who is an artist sought out for his paintings, she is forced to paint in his stead as his health is failing. Of course nobody knows it is Rosalyne completing the paintings because of course, she is a woman and in these times would not have been accepted as a great artist. Edward and Rosalyn meet by chance and of course at first, each has a secret that eventually comes to light. I encourage you to read this wonderful story of two people who are meant to be together but have some obstacles in their path. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series!!

    The Knights of Honor series is always true-to-life, and the seventh book is especially believable. Many actual occurrences are skillfully interwoven into the fictional imaginings of Alexa Aston, and the result is a story that transported me to a time in history which is truly fascinating. Daily lives of people were so different back then, but I feel sure they still dreamed of being happy and even finding a good person to marry. Though the moving romance created by Ms. Aston is not based on fact, The Knights of Honor series is always true-to-life, and the seventh book is especially believable. Many actual occurrences are skillfully interwoven into the fictional imaginings of Alexa Aston, and the result is a story that transported me to a time in history which is truly fascinating. Daily lives of people were so different back then, but I feel sure they still dreamed of being happy and even finding a good person to marry. Though the moving romance created by Ms. Aston is not based on fact, I just hope her scenario of finding true love was a reality for numerous couple during this period because I am such a romantic. LOVE AND HONOR is entertaining with realistic situations and engaging characters. When the French and Scots united in war against England in 1385, Edward de Montfort was excited for the chance to finally fight for his country. Though this was his first battle, his courageous and clever actions resulted in him not only being knighted but asked to be in King Richard’s royal guard. After faithfully performing any tasks required of him, Edward is sent to Canterbury so he can check on the progress of a large wall being rebuilt. While carrying out this important undertaking by pretending to be a worker, he comes in contact with Lady Rosalyne Parry, an intriguing woman who assists her uncle with his paintings. Although the two are attracted to each other, both are hiding secrets about themselves that could affect a possible relationship between them. Alexa Aston is an expert at combining real historical events with her own inventive concepts. Whether a circumstance was something that really did take place or was just an incident envisioned by the author, I never had doubts related to the likelihood of the event occurring. In LOVE AND HONOR, quite a few individuals from the time period make appearances or their names are mentioned. Also, certain factual conflicts or a specific happening is referred to on occasion, thus making the story seem even more convincing. There are a number of innovative ideas in the story, and the ones about Rosalyne and her unique talent as an artist are particularly interesting. Since Edward was always the quiet child in the previous books in the series, I was thrilled to see his true personality shine through in his own story. He is a wonderful man who is very compassionate, yet he can certainly take care of himself and those for whom he cares when the need arises. His interactions with Rosalyne had me often smiling, as their budding relationship is filled with genuine responses and plenty of heartfelt feelings. When I think about LOVE AND HONOR, I will fondly recall the many captivating moments.

The King then sends him on a covert mission to Canterbury and Edward hopes his success will allow him to win his freedom so that he can return home to a quieter life. Lady Rosalyne Parry looses her parents when she is a baby and is wisked away from Shallowheart for he own safety to live and be raised by her uncle, an artist that is rather well known. Due to her uncle's failing health, Rosalyne takes over Templeton Parry's commissions, painting in secret while he still receives the credit since she believes no one would accept a woman as an artist. Rosalyne and Edward meet while he is disguised as a peasant looking for work on Cantbury's wall, and they fall in love. When Edward reveals his true identity to Rosalyne, he convinces her and her uncle to come to London and step out of the shadows in an elaborate plan in order to be recognized as an artist in her own right. Edward and Rosalyne now need to navigate the political waters at court and find an deep, abiding, and everlasting love. Each book in the Knights of Honor series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order. Alexa Aston is a new author to me and I really enjoyed reading her book. She takes a tale of Love, Honor, and Chivalry and infuses it with just the right amount of mystery which makes for an enjoyable reading experience. I definitely would like to read more from this author.

This is the story of Geoffrey and Merryn de Montfort's youngest son, Edward. He is the most sensitive of their six children. Edward and Rosalyne's story flowed very quickly, but not because it was a short book, but due to the fact that it was a very good story. Edward has been knighted on the battlefield due to his bravery. This secures his and his brother, Hal's spot as Royal Guards to King Richard. Edward really did not want the honor of becoming a Royal Guard. His father had just warned him of the change in the political climate surrounding them. Unfortunately, he has to accept this honor because there is no way of bowing out gracefully. He is hopeful, he and his brother will be able to fulfill their duty to the King, then be released of service and return to their home one day. Therefore when an opportunity presents itself to serve his King on a special mission he jumps at the chance. While going undercover on this mission he meets a beautiful woman who lives with her Uncle who is a talented painter. Rosalyne Parry is a humble, smart and talented young lady. She is a Lady by birth only. Her uncle, a talented painter, has raised her on his own and has taught her everything about his craft. Rosalyne realizes his health is failing and she decides to rent out a space in their home to a peasant who is going to work in town. This man intrigues her very much, and she must keep her and her uncle secret. I can tell you, you will love this story! It is very well written. You can read it as a standalone or if you have read the entire series you will love to revisit with previous characters. The epilogue was good. I only wish it was not as far out as it encompassed. It made me think harder about characters then I really had wanted to. Other than that it was truly wonderful.

    What a wonderful book this was from the first page to the last. The story had so much going on and characters where so well developed, I felt their joy and their pain. In the prologue we are introduced to Benedict Bowyar and his not so lovely wife Amicia, what a horrible person she was and that’s putting it mildly. In the beginning we meet Rosalyne our heroine in the story as a baby, born to Lars, Benedict’s brother and Lara the woman who Benedict really loved. Both parents have died and Rosalyn What a wonderful book this was from the first page to the last.

Both parents have died and Rosalyne is sent from Shallowheart to save her life. Edward de Montfort is the youngest son of the Earl of Kinwick and they are helping King Richard fighting against the Scots. As the story unfolds he is sent to Canterbury on a mission for the king, and there he meets Rosalyne now a beautiful grown woman and for him it’s love at first sight. She has been raised by her mother’s brother Temp who is a great artist, a gift she also has for as we find out she surpasses him as a painter. The author left me in awe at the detail she went into as far as the history of the time, and all that went into making the frames and colors that artists used in their work in those days. The love between Edward and Rosalyne was beautiful you could see and feel all that they were going through, some of the things he said to her were enough to make a girl swoon and sigh, of course we have some greedy villains to keep us on our toes, but overall everyone else who made this such a great read were pretty likeable characters. I am so pleased to have been introduced to Alexa Aston’s work I know I will be buying more of her books. I highly recommend her.

They grow closer together as their romance blossoms they navigate the political waters at court and find a deep, abiding love and their HEA!!! This is my honest opinions after I voluntarily read a copy of this book that was provided to me with no requirements for a review.

Rosalyne Parry, the Complex female leading character lived with her uncle, Templeton Parry, a well revered artist, live a modest life supported primarily by the sales of Templeton’s paintings. There are many twists and turns in this love story that will keep you turning page after page. The characters are developed with depth and complexities, the males exhibit both warrior skills as well as the gentle skills as the patient, loving skills needed to reassure a strong, independent woman to come to see the truth her offers. In this series all of the books can be read as stand alone, but I recommend you read them in order if possible them. I highly recommend this wonderful 5 Star read, as well as the others in the series.

There are a lot of very interesting historical facts about the painting process to go with the lovely romantic story. Wonderful characters you can't help but fall in love with.  This is from a series of books that can each be read on their own,  but are better read in order.  I have read and loved all of them.

They must keep secrets during his investigation for their own safety as they face danger as a result of their discoveries. The plot is interesting, it has some colorful characters, and it has a sweetness and heat between the two that made it all the more enjoyable. I am also hoping there’s a story for Hal in the works, as his character was especially fun. I read this as an arc which affected my review in no way at all.

It made me yearn to visit Europe again to see such works thru adult eyes after being awed seeing them as a young teen. The artistry she describes whether about the art or the building of the wall was respectful and well done. She brought to life the past and the hard work of the artisans who built things without all the equipment we now have at our disposal today. This, along with a story that is consistent, well written and engaging made this a very good read. I received an ARC of this book. All opinions are mine without outside influence.

    What to do when your protege is much better than you, but is the wrong sex? Set in a time period where women were just "decoration", the tale of Rosalyne and Edward is one fraught with hidden identities, betrayal, but above all, loyalty and love. Rosalyne paints beautifully, but allows her Uncle to receive the credit and accolades. An agreement which benefits both. Unfortunately, when Edward arrives in town incognito for the King, he discovers not all is as it seems, and not just with Rosalyne.
