A provocative love story between a tough Kansas woman on a crooked path to redemption and her unlikeliest of champions, from the New York Times bestselling author of All the Ugly and Wonderful Things. Many things can bind two people: love, a common enemy, a dangerous promise. Zee is nobody's fairy tale princess. Almost six-foot, with a redhead's temper and a shattered hip, she has a long list of worries: never-ending bills, her beautiful, gullible sister, her five-year-old nephew, her housebound mother, and her drug-dealing boss. Zee may not be a princess, but Gentry is an actual knight, complete with sword, armor, and a code of honor. Two years ago the voices he hears called him to be Zee's champion. Both shy and autistic, he's barely spoken to her since, but he has kept watch, ready to come to her aid. When an abduction tears Zee's family apart, she turns to the last person she ever imagined-Gentry-and sets in motion a chain of events that will not only change both of their lives, but bind them to one another forever in one of the most moving and complicated love stories of our time. The Reckless Oath We Made redefines what it means to be heroic, revealing the strength, honor, and power that lie at the heart of love.

Compelling and utterly readable. Gritty, hardcore, and realistic. There are no punches pulled here; there are some graphic scenes of sex/masturbation. But Gentry will intrigue you, and Leon the dog will steal your heart. I'm glad I read this one.

Take a flawed heroine (Zee), an autistic young man who hears voices and speaks in Olde English (Gentry) and add in a prison escape with Zee's sister held hostage, Zee's hoarding mother aka The Dragon, Gentry's racially diverse adopted family, Ren Fair re-enactment and a dash of the KKK and out pops this unique novel set in Wichita, KS. Gentry has sworn an oath to be Zee's champion. What Zee wants most is to rescue her sister from her captors. Thus their quest is set in motion with unexpected consequences. This gritty romance will appeal to readers who enjoy Laura McHugh's books. If you like the gritty, unexpected duo that is Gentry and Zee you may also want to read "Two Girls Down" by Louise Luna.
