Tributary by Lisa T. Bergren takes off one year after the chaotic events in Bourne. Things are going somewhat well for the Beterranis and their lives in medieval Italy. While, Lia struggles to live with the events of the past, such as the gory battles, their lives are settling in. Until Lord Greco accidently wounds a young woman from the "enemy's" side of Italy. Yeah, big no-no. Castle Forelli seeks any way to smooth over this little bump, but a few of the bad guys have no intentions for creating peace. Other smaller crises pop up that hit the girls and their family and friends with troubles as they juggle with this new guest of theirs.
First, look at that cover. Isn't it just stunning? It made me all the more excited to read this book!
It was a very compelling read, like the others. The medieval settings, descriptions, and such are just marvelous. While the characters stay in the confines of the castle for at least half the book, it wasn't boring. The events in the book were both surprising and cleverly created. They kept me on my toes, and I was forced to read it in one afternoon. It was that good.

I can't talk about these books without mentioning Lord Greco. (*sighs*) He and the other medieval boys were as enchanting as ever. Between their valiant fighting to stand up for their ladies and brothers and their chivalrous manners, they are going to steal the hearts of any girl who reads this book. Luca's quirky attitude had me laughing, and Marcello is the ever strong leader that has an air about him that says he's the boss. It's quite cool. And finally, I got to see Lord Greco genuinely happy. It was wonderful.
If you enjoyed any of the other books in this series, I am most certain you will enjoy this book too. And if you haven't any yet and you are this far, well go read all of them. They are some of the best books I have ever read. And I sincerely hope Tributary is not the last book. Especially not with that ending. :D
Tributary can be bought as an e-book on a number of retailers:
