Traitor's Knot by Cryssa Bazos
England 1650: Civil War has given way to an uneasy peace in the year since Parliament executed King Charles I. Royalist officer James Hart refuses to accept the tyranny of the new government, and to raise funds for the restoration of the king’s son, he takes to the road as a highwayman. Elizabeth Seton has long been shunned for being a traitor’s daughter. In the midst of the new order, she risks her life by sheltering fugitives from Parliament in a garrison town. But her attempts to rebuild her life are threatened, first by her own sense of injustice, then by falling in love with the dashing Hart. The lovers’ loyalty is tested through war, defeat and separation. James must fight his way back to the woman he loves, while Elizabeth will do anything to save him, even if it means sacrificing herself. Traitor’s Knot is a sweeping tale of love and conflicted loyalties set against the turmoil of the English Civil War.
Traitor's Knot is available in eBook & Paperback at Amazon
Overall I loved this book and I loved the complexity of each character, seeing their backgrounds helped me understand who they were. A true love story with some serious struggles along the way to get back together.
With historical novels I find they are much more interesting when the author uses phrases and words from that specific time period, and this book had that. "A pox on your family" meaning curse your family was probably my favorite from this book. When you read a historical fiction book you should be transported back to the time and place in every way, and this book did that for me - I was amused and saddened and finally ... well I won't give away the ending! But if you love historical fiction and an English setting then this is a great book to read! And of course this will be a series so I can't wait to read the other books.
