I always look forward to a new Sisterhood Of Secrets book, and Knight Of Destiny met and exceeded all my expectations. Each book in this series tells the story of a young woman whose time at Mrs. Rutley’s finishing school is at an end. This is Miss Louisa Dunston and Sir Aaron Kirkwood’s story.
Sir Aaron has been knighted due to his service to the princess. Unfortunately, this has only increased Aaron’s feelings of self-importance. Aaron is arrogant, and his derogatory feelings toward women are outrageous. Louisa is an eavesdropper and a flirt. Aaron and Louisa are instantly repelled and attracted to each other. Aaron and Louisa find themselves in a contest with the fate of a theatre and their futures at stake.
Many times the enemies-to-lovers trope focuses on two people who are opposites. This story has a unique twist in that Aaron and Louisa are very similar. Many of Aaron and Louisa’s characteristics could have been off-putting; however, the author does a magnificent job of humanizing Aaron and Louisa. These are two lonely, lost, imperfect souls who find they are perfect for each other.
The plot was medium-paced, allowing the characters to breathe and develop fully. As always, the recurring secondary characters gave vibrancy and authenticity to the story. Aaron and Louisa’s rough romance was a sweetly passionate story that melts your heart and gives a couple of laughs along the way.
Knight Of Destiny is the fifth book in the Sisterhood Of Secrets series. This entire series is a joy to read. Jennifer Monroe breathes life into these malleable, vulnerable young women and takes us on their emotional journey of growing up and falling in love.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
