A gilded cage is still a cage.
From the womb, she was owned. Shula Kelley was signed away before her first breath, just like everyone else in secessionist Texas. She was called beautiful like it meant something important. Like it would get her a kind husband, or one less cruel. She hoped Jared Agnesson was kind.
And the devil you know is still the devil.
As punishment for his son's rebellion, the patriarch of the Agnesson clan claimed Shula for his own. And she saw only one way out. Shula had a plan, but she didn't realize it would require a savior.
Suffer not the sins of the father.
First acts of rebellion open doors that are best left closed. Until Jared walked through it. Her savior. But how can she truly love when she only knows obedience?
Review by Lorena
This series really had me thinking about what times used to be like, because it sounded like this was based in the ancient times. The times when men ruled and women would just bow their heads and listen to their husbands. I sure as heck wouldn't have liked living in that era, but we get to see a glimpse of what it was like before.
This series focuses on sins of James and his sons. He ruled his sons' worlds and he dictated who they married and when they married. I certainly would have loathed him had he been my father trying to tell me what or who to marry. You definitely can't control who you love and it sucks when a family member picks your mate.
You will be intrigued with these stories and you will fall in love with the Agnesson brothers. We learn a lot from these boys and what they are capable of and what they push their limits to.
I can surely tell you that you will highly enjoy this series. It's sinful beyond belief and things like this do happen in real life. I'm just glad it didn't happen in our era lol!
This author weaved these stories so well that you will keep going and going and going until you reach the end and you're going to wish there was more. I can definitely tell you that I fell in love with Jared, he seemed to be the strong brother and how he treated his wife was unbelievable. You would think that he and Jude would turn out to be like their dad -- far from it actually. They were both such caring and loving gentlemen when it came to their wives.
Total 4.5 star read!
