Product Description

Duty to King

Tomas Dyrease, the newly made Earl of Irvaine and the village of Wisenvale, owes his good fortune to his king and the recent civil war. When his benefactor demands Tomas marry the cousin of a noble, he obeys. However, no one warned him that she wasn’t a typical noblewoman.

Duty to Others

Brielle Solarius struggles to keep her village from starvation under the new Lord Wisten, her cousin. The men rode off to war and never returned. The remaining women and children face a dire winter if they do not find a solution soon. When she learns her cousin sold her into marriage to save his life, she isn’t surprised. However, she is taken aback by Lord Irvaine’s unpolished ways. Was this man a noble or a foot soldier?

Duty to Each Other

Bound by the words of their vows, they face a rough future. They must forge a marriage while battling betrayal, accusations of treason, and villains from the past. Survival depends on their precarious trust in each other. Failure could mean death.

About the Author

Rachel Rossano balances her time between the chaos of raising and homeschooling her three children and the world of drama and high adventure in her head. With her faithful husband and chief consulting editor by her side, she dreams of many more adventures to come in both of her double lives.

HASH(0x99b46a74) out of 5 stars Still thinking about this one days later!!! Feb. 11 2013
By Tifferz - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Duty is a story that consumed me from the get go. I liked a story when two people have to marry and don't necessarily like each other. Brielle and Tomas have great chemistry and both seem to be levelheaded. I found that Brielle is a strong leading lady and has her wits about her. Tomas is a soldier who has many battle wounds yet is tender and caring with Brielle. I felt like Tomas and Brielle were equally matched and had to learn to trust one another. I felt Ms. Rossano did a impressive job with Tomas's character flaws and all. I liked him a lot. I really like when the character seem real and they felt that way to me in Duty. I kinda felt the story was a little rushed. I would have enjoyed a little more foundation for Tomas and Brielle's relationship before they were separated. This story has a lot of movement in a short amount of time. It would have been nice to be in one location longer than a night. That being said I still found Duty to be a beautifully written story, filled with romance, mystery and some unexpected events! I will be looking forward to Ms. Rossano's next stroy! I hope you all enjoy this read as much as I did!

Just FYI~ This story does contain some violence, but no sex or swearing

HASH(0x99b46cc0) out of 5 stars Action, Romance, Danger, and Faith Feb. 13 2013
By Roseanne Wilkins - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Duty reads like a historical novel, but it's set in a land called Rhynan. After a brutal civil war, Tomas is ordered to marry Brielle to strengthen the allegiances in the region. Brielle does her duty and accepts the arranged marriage, but Tomas has to earn her love and respect. Their journey to a satisfactory end is interrupted by deceit and violence. Duty was everything I expected from Rachel. I love her characters. I love the action. I love the kissing. I love the romance. The only thing I hate about Rachel's books is finishing one...and waiting for the next one. I hope it comes fast, because I'm already anxious to read it.

HASH(0x99924d44) out of 5 stars Fast-paced, Exciting Romance Feb. 15 2013
By Shanna Hatfield - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Duty had me hooked from the first line right to the last. I seriously loved the opening lines and it just got better from there. This book has everything: action, adventure, romance, mystery, hope and love.

The story centers around two strong, duty-bound characters who have to learn to trust each other. Brielle and Tomas have great chemistry, were well-matched, and their adventure kept me turning pages to see what would happen next. The author brought the characters to life and made the settings in the story seem vividly real.

If you haven't read any of her books before, make it a point to check out Rossano's work. She has my admiration for her cunning writing and wonderful talent for immediately drawing the reader into the story and keeping their interest throughout the book.

HASH(0x99b469cc) out of 5 stars A Favorite! May 31 2014
By Laurie Penner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fast-moving, clean read, with well-developed characters. I like this one the best of Rossano's books that I have read. I had trouble putting the book down. Nobody could get bored reading this book, unless they need more graphic details in order to get excited about something. Plenty of action, suspense, and subtle romance in Rossano's books make me want to read more by this author. These characters get thrown together and then become way too busy protecting others and each other to get self-focused over their arranged marriage. If you like characters with a strong faith and purpose, you will love this book.
