The Wise Woman by Juliet Cardin

The Wise Woman by Juliet Cardin
* I received a copy of this book from Breathless Press in exchange for an honest review*

Belinda Cordrey, the village wisewoman, has loved Lord Balek Grey for as long as she can remember. Despite her devastation over his betrothal to another, Belinda rushes to his side when he sends for her aid. To her surprise and delight, Balek asks her to cure his impotence. Though solving his little problem may prove to be an enjoyable task, Belinda knows that she will surely lose him forever should she succeed. Despite the consequences, she decides to put forth all her skills and efforts to heal him. But as she sets to work with her special herbs and oil, Belinda hopes to show her lord that it is she who his heart truly desires.

The Wise Woman is the story of Belinda the village healer and Lord Balek, whom she has been in love with for years.  She was orphaned as a teenager but has been allowed to live on the property of the Lord.  She became known as the village wisewoman because of her skills as a healer.

Lord Balek had to step into his father’s shoes as Lord of the Manor at an early age.  He and Belinda were friends growing up but his father has promised him to another and he intends to honor his father’s dying wish.  He is unable to satisfy his betrothed so he calls for Belinda to help him “rise” to the occasion. 

With the help of some herbs and encouraging words from Belinda, Lord Balek thinks he’s ready to take on the world.  When he goes to his betrothed, he is still unable to satisfy her needs.  He can’t understand why he and Belinda have no problems being together.

The characters are interesting and have chemistry between them.  They have a history, which gave the story meaning and credibility.  I like Belinda’s character, she is determined and knows what she wants but worries that she has gotten it by being devious.  There is a twist at the ending that added a nice touch. 

Overall I enjoyed the book and would like to see more of Belinda and Balek.  I give The Wise Woman 3 Flaming Hearts.
