A Richard Armitage fan on Pinterest highly recommended that I read this book The Tempest A Guy of Gisborne Story. Since the Kindle version is only $3.99 I decided to purchase it. I started reading it the next day and I literally could not put the book down until I finished the story. It is written by Charlotte Hawkins.
I really enjoyed reading this book. A couple of people on Amazon hated it but I don’t get that at all. I found the storyline to be very engaging. It was nice to see Guy of Gisborne find the true love of his life and I was glad that it was not Marian. It was also nice to see Guy’s transformation from a man who was wicked and cruel to a man who deep down had a good decent side to him and was really ashamed of the way he acted and the lives he ruined.
Cassia DeWarren is the woman who loved Guy of Gisborne and was able to see through him to his soul. She saw that deep down there was goodness in him and with her love she brought that aspect of Guy to the fore. At the start of the story Guy is still obsessed with Marian, but after he is injured and left unconscious, his body was found by Cassia and her father Robert DeWarren. Cassia and Robert managed to bring Guy’s body to the house and from there worked on his injuries which were very serious and life threatening. As Cassia’s unwilling patient Guy gets to know Cassia who is of peasant birth. Being in constant close proximity with Cassia, Guy is forced to get to know her better. The more Guy gets to know Cassia the more he is drawn to her as a person. Guy is also physically drawn to Cassia. She is a dark beauty just as Marian was but instead of having green eyes Cassia’s eyes are dark.
