GRAVE MERCY, by Robin LaFevers

Grave Mercy: His Fair Assassin, Book I (His Fair Assassin Trilogy)**** Loved it!

Lots of intrigues, spies, deception and also love.

This story takes place in the beautiful Brittany of 1485 when the Duchy of Brittany still remained independent from France. Although the characters  travel  through " la Bretagne", there are little or no descriptions of the cities they visit, such as Guerande, Nantes, Rennes, Quimper, Amboise, fougeres, Brest, Guingamp, St. Malo...   A pity.

Grave Mercy is written in the first person of  Ismae Rienne who was raised as  the daughter of a turnip's farmer but was in fact the daughter of Mortain, the god of death. She was brutally beaten by her father until he sold her to Guillo as his wife, but he was no better.  She was saved by a herbewitch who took her to the Convent of Saint Mortain.  By the way they had to take a boat to reach the Convent, I imagine it was Mont St. Michel. A convent in a small island, very near the beach which is now a tourist place and a convent.

Ismae is fourteen years old when she learns to serve Mortain in any way he asks her. She is not only very clever but also an excellent assasin.  She despises  all men, for how they had treated her all her life, but then  she meets Duval...

A Dixie Christmas***

The first story: Clayton Jessup III is the new owner of The Blue Suede Suites and the vacant lot where  the Fallons had set up their Nativity scene. Annie Fallon and her family where all dressed up as characters of a fifties movie retrospective.  Still, a strange heat pulsed through Clayton's body as he gazed at her.  And just as he was about to kicking them off his property, he fell broke his ankle and bumped his head. And Annie took him to her farm and took good care of him....

The second story: Lance Caslow, her exhusband and NASCAR superheroe was once more trying to convince her to forgive him.  He probably thought she would take one look at him and melt, and she did, but she didn't forgive him.  So he decided to take drastic measures...

Forbidden Fantasies**** I enjoyed this short story!

Jessica Meyers has been married to  her handsome husband for fifteen years.  They have two children of seven and five years old and their sex life is a bore.  But then Jessica bought some bdsm books and she started yearning for more.

Alex Meyers is a state trooper and is a master uncovering the truth but cannot understand what is happening to their marriage. So when his wife tells him, he prepares a special weekend in a b&b (bondage and breakfast)

This story is nice, is a bdsm, but is not kinky.  I enjoyed it.
