BOOK REVIEW: Of Love and Vengeance by Louise Lyndon

REVIEW by Alysia Minott
I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would, because I have not read very many historical romances. Of Love and of Vengeance is a historical romance set during the Norman Conquest. I enjoyed the main characters which were Laila and Aymon.   In this book, the characters face every day problems like secrets, stereotypes, and trust issues.  The two characters in this book are married and must learn how to overcome all this to get to know each other better.  I think the bad guy in this book needs more depth, but overall all not a bad book.

* I received a copy of this book from Flurries of Words in exchange for an honest review*

Forced to marry Lord Aymon to ensure her young nephew’s survival, English Lady Laila vows undying hatred for the Norman she holds responsible for the deaths of so many innocents. Discovering Aymon has committed an act of treason gives her the chance to seek vengeance he deserves. But can Laila let Aymon die at the hands of the king once she learns the truth?

A hardened Norman warrior, Lord Aymon has lived through atrocities no man ever should. With the invasion of England over, all he wants is a quiet life and a wife who will give him heirs and obey his every command. Instead, he finds himself wed to feisty and outspoken Laila. But when she learns the truth of his treasonous act, can Aymon count on her to keep his secret?
