Lady's Ransom (The First Argentines Book 3) Kindle Edition
In kingdoms at war, alliances are made to be broken in a thrilling novel of magic and dark conspiracies by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Warrior’s Ransom.
Ransom Barton and his wife, Claire de Murrow, have arrived in Legault to reclaim the title that was Claire’s birthright. Claire intends to rebuild a war-ravaged palace to its former glory and to teach Ransom about the magical history of their new home. But when Ransom is summoned to return to King Benedict, his loyalty to Claire is tested. Fealty prevails, however questionable the king’s motives.
The ambitious Benedict, who controls his late father’s dominion, must prove his might. The warriors of the East Kingdoms have disrupted the trade routes, weakening every kingdom in their path. Benedict’s plan is to fend off a coming war through strategic alliances. But it’s Ransom’s post to keep the king’s allies—as well as his poisonous enemies—in line, even as Benedict’s defense may be inviting further chaos.
As the king’s power grows and Ransom’s rise in the council is secured, a shadowy conspiracy threatens to destroy everything Ransom has worked to build. Now torn between allegiance to the woman he loves and duty to king and country, which will Ransom choose?

Book 3 doesn't disappoint. Treachery abounds but so does loyalty, love and honour. I also love all Mr Wheeler's books because he is not loathe to speak of a higher power. I think this brings another dimension to his stories. In his acknowledgements in this book, he refers to an email from a lady who found comfort in words taken from a previous series while coping with forest fires. I have saved many notes I have highlighted from his books too, as sometimes they just resonate so much.
As for this story, I can't say much without spoiling it but the action, the tension, the misinformation, the machinations and of course our ensuing worry for the characters we have come to care about are all there and I cannot see how a reader could be disappointed.
Roll on 04/01/22 when Fate's Ransom (The First Argentines Book 4) will be released. I hope there won't be too much anguish but I'm ready to read it all the same. I believe this will be the final book in the series but, as with all Jeff Wheeler's series, they are very rereadable, so I know they will continue to entertain me.
I read this with Kindle Unlimited and I am grateful that this author, and many other excellent authors, allow us to do so.
Can't wait for the fourth in the series.
