4.5 stars for Hugh: Pirates of Britannia Connected World by @RuthACasie #medieval #bookreview

Title: Hugh: Pirates of Britannia Connected World (Sons of Sagamore Book 1)

Author: Ruth A. Casie

Genre: Medieval Romance

Book Blurb:

Family secrets filled with intrigue, treachery, and a 30-year-old murder must be resolved or he'll lose her forever.

Hugh Talbot is a self-made man who built his fortune one coin at a time. One of the wealthiest men in England, people vie to be his client. He is a loyal man who is instinctive and decisive by nature and bases his business on honesty and trust. An eligible bachelor sought after by every mother with a single daughter, he has no interest in a relationship, until he falls wholeheartedly in love with Charlotte.

Lady Charlotte Eden and her father recently from France have taken up residence at their long-neglected family estate in England. A methodical well-organized archery champion she is introduced to Hugh by a mutual friend. His support of her archery endears him to her, add his honesty and good humor and she is doomed. Theirs is not a budding romance. It is in full bloom.

When Hugh introduces Charlotte the daughter of Lord Miles Eden, the Earl of Sagamore to his family, a decades old scandal filled with intrigue, treachery, and murder comes to light. Hugh’s family is turned upside down when his father announces he is the true Earl of Sagamore who had denounced his title and legacy and that his uncle Lord Miles Eden, was killed in a duel three decades ago.

His world in shambles, Hugh’s loyalty to his family will be tested when he must decide if blood is thicker than water.

My Review:

Lady Charlotte Eden meets Hugh Talbot at an archery tournament and it’s an immediate attraction. Neither of them is looking for love but love finds them, almost like Cupid shooting arrows in their direction. When Hugh introduces Charlotte to his family, Hugh’s father reveals a decades-old secret that drives these newfound lovers apart. Torn between family honor and Charlotte’s love, Hugh must choose a side. Is he willing to lose the love of his life over a deadly secret, all for the title of Earl of Sagamore?

Hugh is a continuation of the Stelton Legacy by USA Today Bestseller Ruth A. Casie and a good addition to the Pirates of Britannia Connected World. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the parts with Lady Charlotte. She is a fantastic heroine and her love of archery, not seen often in historical romances, adds a new dimension to the story. The suspense and the intrigue behind what happened thirty years ago kept me riveted. The plot moves at a good pace with a slow build to the exciting conclusion. Overall, this is a great medieval romance and one I recommend, especially to fans of the Pirates of Britannia Connected World series.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
