We recently received a romance novel titled The Warrior’s Bride Prize written by author Jenni Fletcher to review on our blog. In a nutshell, here is the synopsis : 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…… If we have got your gripped so far and you are yearning to find out more about the book then read on as we share our review of the book here.
What We Thought of the Book ?
The book follows a nice path and at times has you gripped but equally is often quite predictable – not that this is necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately, the first few chapters are let down by the fact you already know what’s going to happen as it has been given away in the blurb at the back of the book. I actually found this quite odd that they would give away such a crucial moment away, you don’t know ‘how’ it happens, but know it will happen as you have already ready about it! Once you get past this important moment, you are then taken through another few chapters where you get to know more about the characters, and then the final few chapters have you gripped. I found that Fletcher’s description of the fight scene really thrilling but other times in the book I was just reading to get onto the next step, hoping the other pages might capture my imagination. I loved learning about the Roman era and the descriptions of the clothing were great. I really got an idea of how the fabric flowed and what the armour on the men looked like. Overall, I think its a lovely book, with a nice story and an interesting outcome. The book would be a great easy read to take on holiday and can easily be picked up and put down without too much bother. It is not complicated so makes it a relaxing read.
How much is the book sold for?
