"Due to her parents' promise at her birth, Lady Rosemarie has been prepared to become a nun on the day she turns eighteen. Then, a month before her birthday, a friend of her father's enters the kingdom and proclaims her parents' will left a second choice. If Rosemarie can marry before the eve of her eighteenth year, she will be exempt from the ancient vow. 
Before long, Rosemarie is presented with the three most handsome and brave knights in the land. But when the competition for her heart seemingly results in a knight playing foul, she begins to wonder if the cloister is the best place after all. If only one of the knights the one who appears the most guilty had not already captured her heart." -

This was kindly sent my way from the publishers via Netgalley for an honest review.

This is your typical find your true love before this date at midnight or be forever alone. Rosemary was promised as a baby to convent on her 18th birthday. Her godfather finds a loophole in the arrangement, if Rosemary can find her one true love before midnight of her 18th birthday then she doesn't have to live her life as a nun. 

Although I knew who was going to be her pick right off the bat, it was a very enjoyable book. It was a quick read, beautifully written, and just all around a solid book. There is action, mystery, twists and turns, but comes together in a very beautiful ending. I picked this book out because of the cover, I love this time era - of kinds and queens, courts and castles. I can't get enough of it. I loved the flirting and the courting in this book between Rosemary and the three men. It was fun to go through her journey of falling in love with one of the knights. 

Don't think this is just a sappy romance novel though, there is death, there is mystery, and most of what always happens in court - backstabbing. I enjoyed this book very much.

4 out of 5 stars!!
