In this ebook historical romance novella by Jody Hedlund, young Rosemarie finds herself drawn to Thomas, the son of the nearby baron. But just as her feelings begin to grow, a man carrying the Plague interrupts their hunting party. While in forced isolation, Rosemarie begins to contemplate her future—could it include Thomas? Could he be the perfect man to one day rule beside her and oversee her parents’ lands?
Then Rosemarie is summoned back to her castle in haste. The disease has spread, and her family is threatened. And the secret she discovers when she returns could change her future forever.
This novella also serves as a prequel to Jody Hedlund’s An Uncertain Choice.
For novellas, shorts stories, and other short novels I will only be doing my thoughts from now on.
My Thoughts: I read the main three book in this series last year or the year before, and just found the short prequel on Hoopla, (I may do a post on Hoopla another day.) and borrowed it. This book felt like the author threw it together and didn’t really focus on character development. The writing also felt juvenile, but it was still an enjoyable book. In all, it is a good hook for the rest of the series!

Indie-publishing her first short story on January 31st, 2019 while working on the first draft to three full-length novels that she hopes to one-day indie-publish. One a spy-thriller, another a sequel to Rooftop Sanctuary, and the last is a secret!
