The Crusader’s Kiss (The Champions of Saint Euphemia #3) by Claire Delacroix
Synopsis: His dream of becoming a knight achieved, Bartholomew heads home to avenge his parents—only to find himself hunted and in need of the assistance of a most unlikely and unpredictable ally. Anna seeks justice with a disregard for the law that shocks Bartholomew, but the bold maiden’s tactics are as effective as her kisses are seductive. Does she truly wish to aid him in achieving his dream, or is she using him as a pawn in some scheme of her own?
Review: I think this one is my favorite of the series so far. Everything seems to have come together well for a great story; strong characters, complex conflict, highs and lows, strong dialogue, and great adventure. It lacked some of the weaknesses I found in the character development of book one, The Crusader’s Bride, and though I enjoyed book two, The Crusader’s Heart, this one just seemed to be a stronger well rounded story with the elements that make for a great romance. I enjoyed it a lot. I loved how strong Anna was, how noble and honorable Bartholomew was, how well they worked together, and their story was so enjoyable and entertaining. The villain was strong, the conflict was believable and was a good match for the two main characters. They really had to work together to overcome their obstacles. Definitely a very enjoyable story with all of the aspects I look for in a epic romance. So good!
