Review: For Love and Country by Elizabeth D. Michaels

When A Man Is Torn Between Honoring His Country And The Woman He Loves, The Best Option Might Be To Choose Both. 

When Maggie du Woernig willfully ignores her parents’ admonitions and entangles herself with Nik Koenig, she is certain he’s the only man who will make her happy. Blind to Nik’s real intentions, she throws herself recklessly into a situation that could not only destroy her life but compromise the safety of her country.

Han Heinrich has resigned himself to working in the castle stables, mostly as an excuse to have contact each day with Maggie. His aspirations for a more fulfilling career seem fruitless, in spite of his father’s position as the duke’s highest advisor. But when Han learns about Maggie’s precarious situation, he is willing to sacrifice everything to protect the woman he loves, and to save the country he would die for. He only hopes that someday Maggie will forgive him.

My Review:

When I'm ready for a nice, long, leisurely escape with fabulous characters who feel like friends and family I want to spend time with, I grab one of Elizabeth D. Michaels' Horstberg Saga books. I truly enjoy the kingdom and characters I've grown to love, and I hope this series lasts at least a few more books! The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars was that I was slightly disturbed by some of the main character's tactics, but many of the tender scenes between the couple later on helped me get over it, and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the book. I love how Michaels is able to craft each book in the series with very distinct romances between each couple yet meld their stories together so well that I find I can't wait until the next one! Clean romance, charming royalty, and exciting adventure--what more could you want?
