Review: Adem and Corun had an affair when they were both young men. Then Corun went off to war and Adem found out later that Corun was dead. For next thirty something years Adem went on living and working for the crown. After a horrible attack, Adem is suffering what I would term PTSD. When he is forced to his country estate he learns that his lost love is not dead after all.

Adem and Corun have the chance to fall in love all over again. And it was sweet and really kind of adorable. Corun has lived a lifetime as a soldier and is able to help Adem begin to deal and heal from the trauma he suffered.

I this a pretty neat little story. It had political intrigue, some action, and a lost love found. It also shows that bravery comes in all types of packages.
