The Saxon Outlaw’s Revenge by Elisabeth Hobbes is dark, intense yet vivid, and daring. Ms. Hobbes writes with insight and her research sheds light on an era where conflict and the battle for power have no limitation. The scenes in this book burst to life through edgy dialogue, hair-raising moments of violence but toned down with a strong bond between the hero and heroine…that steadily grows into a lasting and intimate reunion. The characters…especially the hero and heroine are likable, strong and determined in their own unique way. The secondary characters added depth to the story and helped moved the plot along on a tumultuous nerve-wrecking journey. Overall, a compelling novel that would definitely find favor with historical romance fans!
