Set in a fantasy world, “Love in Two Acts” is the story of two people who seem to be one thing but aren't, as three kingdoms collide in long-held disputes and life and death hang in the balance. Marigold has been the companion and protector of Princess Rozabela since they were children. When Rozabela’s entourage is attacked on her way to her own royal wedding by those wanting to take her captive and marry her to the son of a different king. Who else can step in to save her except confident courageous Marigold even though it may mean her death if she’s caught in the act?
Not one to really get swept up in romances whether they are books, movies, or music. I have to admit Ronnda Eileen Henry swept me away in her charming royal court fantasy adventure romance tale “Love in Two Acts.”
Set in a medieval fantasy setting Love in Two Acts is a refreshing sweet romantic read. Henry’s heroine Marigold is brilliantly written. I just loved her. She is ever the kind polite lady but doesn't take any BS reminding me of a medieval version of Princess Leia with the smart witty tongue to boot.
Henry’s writing flows flowery and eloquent reminiscent of the time period the story takes place in, with a couple of hiccups at times. For instance, Andro’s calls Marigold by her true name in one scene to which I think this was just a typo on the author's part, not a jaw-dropping plot twist for when Marigold gets discovered…well do not want to ruin the book for you all. Thanks to Henry’s strong driven characters they override these little nit-picky details.
Love in Two Acts is a pleasantly pure, yet alluring romantic adventurous tale perfect for young and old readers alike. I love books that can totally sweep me away making me forgot life's problems for a moment and take me on an adventure, stirs things in my soul I had forgotten totally about. Henry did just that. I think I just might read it again.
