The House of Baric: Widows and Weddings is Book 3 in the historical romance trilogy by Jillian Bald. While traveling to Thessaloniki with mercenaries and his fiancée, Ruby, Jero Baric is falsely accused of a crime and arrested. Ruby and the mercenaries leave, promising to get his brother Mauro’s help. Mauro, unaware of Jero’s dilemma, attends a wedding in Venice with his pregnant wife, Resi. Jero manages to escape with the help of Sasho and his mother, but his troubles have only just begun. Meanwhile, Bem’s determination to be reunited with his wife, Fatima, who was enslaved, comes with an ultimatum. Romance blooms for persons when they least expect it, but it sometimes takes more than Cupid’s arrows to make it flourish.

There is a lot of drama in The House of Baric: Widows and Weddings and it’s never dull. Most of the characters from the other two books are still prominent in this historical romance trilogy and new ones are introduced. The story has its fair share of ire, sadness, joyous moments, and amusement so my moods matched the drama in which the characters were involved. I didn’t read Book 2, but Jillian Bald included information throughout this story, which can be read as a stand-alone novel. A bit of history on the European countries during this era also interested me. Most of the women are outspoken and wily when using their charms on men. But the men compete so well against them. Widows and Weddings, Book 3 is a wonderfully written novel in The House of Baric Trilogy.
