For blacksmith Hal Danby, marrying Joanna makes his lifelong dream of entering the Smiths’ Guild possible, even if the secrets in his past mean he’ll forever keep his distance. But everything changes with one stolen night, and in the arms of his new bride, Hal wonders if this loveless arrangement could transform into something real…

Blacksmith's wife cover
I love this cover.  Such an intense expression on their faces.

‘The Blacksmith’s Wife is a beautiful love story that transports the reader into another time, where men were strong and women had to be even stronger. Like a painter, Elisabeth adds layers to her setting and characters until the reader can’t help but be carried along with the storyline, and root for that happily ever after.

I highly recommend this book to discerning romance readers. You will fall in love with Hal and Joanna, as well as with Elisabeth Hobbes’ writing!’  Goodreads review.
