Nothing will defeat his love…
Unjustly accused, four daring Crusaders have banded together in the Medieval Holy Land to clear their names and protect a kingdom in peril. With their unique gifts, the Brotherhood of Fallen Angels Abbey are prepared to face any challenge. But are they ready for love?
It is not the first time Roman Berg has escaped death, and it will likely not be the last. There is a price on his head, and his tall Nordic bearing makes him stand out in Damascus. The skilled builder has witnessed the destruction of his life’s work at Chastellet and the murder of innocent victims. But there is no question of retreat; he cannot rest until he rescues his allies and warns King Baldwin of a murderous plot against him. And he may need help from an unexpected ally . . .
Isra Tak’Ahn is an uncommon beauty. Part Egyptian and part English, she is as brave as she is alluring. Like Roman, she has been marked for death by her enemies and her vendetta is fiercely personal. Driven into hiding, Isra joins Roman at Fallen Angels Abbey. Within the walls of the centuries-old sanctuary on the Danube, they plan their daring return to Jerusalem—and discover that their greatest asset may be each other. But passion has no place in these dangerous times, and Roman and Isra must fight their feelings while the future of the kingdom hangs in the balance . . .
Roman is the 3rd book in The Brotherhood of Fallen Angels series penned by Heather Grothaus.
Roman is not your normal historical romance where you have a Soldier involved in a historical event that the author wanted to romanticize about. But a historical we did get and in this story romance took a back burner.
Roman wasn’t your standard soldier and/or warrior. You probably asking what was he then. Roman was an architect who built Chastellet. But circumstances beyond his control made him throw down the pen and pick up a sword.
Roman has witnessed personally the destruction of his life work be destroyed. Waking up after the battle at Chastellet, Roman just has one thing on his mind…to save his brothers or die trying.
With an aid of a falcon, a tiger and a mysterious beauty Roman must complete a mission to clear all of their names and by doing so, he must first save the King that put the bounty on all of their heads.
Being that this was the first book from the series and the first title I ever read written by Heather Grothaus I can’t actually tell you anything other than that Roman was an enjoyable book. There were a few slow parts but overall the story progressed without any plot holes that I could find. The romance between Roman and Isra was lacking but then again who has time for romance when there is a Kingdom to be saved.
