Mystique is a charming tale that Amanda Quick tells that takes place in the Medieval period.
Lady Alice was left with nothing of her brothers inheritance until the meeting with Lord Hugh who was called Hugh the Relentless. Together there mission is to find the stones that have been taken each claiming ownership. Hugh offers for her hand as a scheme to have her help find the stones but he wanted a marriage he just had to let Alice know.
The story delivers a great twist at the end that you didn’t see coming which gave the story even more intrigue.
The characters are fantastic. I love how Alice holds a lot of the cards and does not back down when Hugh issues an order. And even though Hugh is the lord he does compromise with his lady.
