Review of How to Marry Your Wife by Stella Marie Alden

How To Marry Your WifeHow To Marry Your Wife by Stella Marie Alden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Highly entertaining – The author captures the era and you really feel like you are there in medieval times. I read the first book by this author. How to Train your Knight, and I really enjoyed it. The main characters Marcus and Ann do make an appearance in How to Marry your Wife and it is nice to see how they have moved on with their lives. I didn’t think that this book would be able to match the first but I was pleasantly surprised as it exceeded my expectations. You can read either book as a stand-alone novel, and there are no cliff hangers. How to Marry your Wife is funny, heart-breaking at times and depicts the era very well! You are taken on a journey through time which the author captures in vivid detail. It centres around a Templar Knight, Thomas and Merry the maiden he falls in love with, prior to leaving to go on assignment for the King. Six years later he returns to find that thing are not how he left them. I must say that this is an excellent read even if you don’t normally follow this genre.

Review of Born of Defiance by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Born of Defiance (The League, #9)Born of Defiance by Sherrilyn Kenyon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The League series is addictive, and this book is no different.

It focuses around Talyn and Feliciea, and is true love at its finest.
Talyn is lonely but certainly not helpless. He has to fight for everything he has and wants. He constantly suffers by the hand of the Andarian Royals.

With the love of a strong willed, caring women Talyn battles to overcome the brutality of his life.

For those who have read other league stories. Nykrian’s story links in with this one. The storyline is heart breaking and really does get your emotions going. Swapping from teary eyed to angry, Ms Kenyon successfully keeps you enthralled throughout. Another outstanding example of her work.

Review of Lions Share by Rachel Vincent

Lion's Share (Wildcats, #1)Lion's Share by Rachel Vincent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Firstly I loved the Shifter books. They are an outstanding series around, a were-panther pride, and the lead female Faythe Sanders.

Faythe is the only female enforcer and a real tough cookie. Her adventures stole our hearts as she battled with the antiquated beliefs of the male run society.

The lions share is the first book in the Wildcats series and takes us back to those familiar characters we know and love. Ms Vincent didn’t disappoint with this action packed novel. It is highly entertaining and I didn’t want to put it down. The Jace and Abby characters have grown and moved on with their lives. I don’t want to spoil it for you so I won’t elaborate but one thing I will say is that you can read this book, without reading the previous series. Although it is a shame if you miss out on the excellent shifter series.

I cannot wait for the next book in the series. I fell for Jace all over again in this series.
