Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: The Warrior’s Bride Prize by Jenni Fletcher
Author: Jenni Fletcher
Publisher: Mills and Book
Published: October 4th, 2018
This is a historical romance mainly set near Hadrian’s War in Roman times. Livia Valeria is ordered by her half brother to marry someone she’s never met just two months after her first husband died. Her brother had arranged her first marriage and ruined that but she has no other options . . . until fate intervenes!
I hadn’t read any romances set in this era before and I have to say that the author has created a moving – and educational – story that I thoroughly enjoyed! I learnt much about the era as Marius Varro explained situations and the Roman Army structure to Livia. Livia was a strong, female lead, determined and fierce. I loved the meeting between her and her brother towards the end of the story! There are battles to be fought, secrets to be revealed and love to be won in this brilliant romance. I hadn’t read anything by Jenni Fletcher before but I’ll be checking out her previous books and, if she hasn’t already, I really hope she will be creating more stories set in this era in future. I’ve a new-to-me author to look out for!
I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Daughter of a slave…
…wedded to the warrior!
Livia Valeria is furious when she’s ruthlessly gambled away by her intended bridegroom. Luckily, it’s tall, muscled and darkly handsome Roman centurion Marius Varro who wins her as his bride! Livia must hide her Caledonian roots, but when Marius faces a barbarian rebellion at Hadrian’s Wall she must make a choice: her heritage or the husband she’s falling for…
