Warrior’s Revenge by Coreene Callahan

Warrior’s Revenge

I’ve limited myself to Historical Romance for the next few weeks while I finish up Book Three of my MacKay’s Series. Reading outside of the genre I’m working on has become distracting.

This week’s pick for Book Trailer Wednesday is Warrior’s Revenge. This was placed on my to read list a few weeks ago after finding the book trailer on YouTube.

Synopsis:

Sometimes the only way to love and redemption is to make a deal with the devil.

After the death of her parents, Lady Aurora de Marquise is left with no illusions and little faith. Stripped of her birthright and betrayed by her uncle, escape is her only option. With her life on the line, she narrowly avoids another murder attempt—only to run headlong into Lord Brigham de Mornay, a man most consider a monster.

With her uncle’s henchmen nipping at her heels, Aurora knows better than to trust a stranger—especially one as compelling as Brigham. Well-honed instincts urge her to flee before his abundant charm takes a nasty turn into aggression—and she ends up neck deep in trouble.

But when her uncle manages to track her, the game of fox and hound takes a perilous turn and she is left with the ultimate choice—risk everything trying to escape again or trust Brigham to keep her safe.

Set in northern England near the Scottish border, Warrior’s Revenge is a gritty, fast-paced medieval romance in which second chances are possible, and true love lies just a heartbeat away.

My Thoughts:

This is the first story I’ve read by this author, but I was impressed. This book was excellent from start to finish. I managed to read it in about a day and a half and enjoyed every minute.

Aurora – The heroine’s nickname is Rory. She loves horses and her lady’s maid is actually a man. She is strong and stubborn, a true fighter. Her secret longing is to be loved.

Brigham – A local Baron who has a bad reputation. He’s known as a monster by those who don’t know him, but beloved by those who follow him.

It had great character development and interaction. The chemistry between the Aurora and Brigham was sizzling hot. The dialogue was entertaining and the characters were actually likeable. I loved the way the scenes came to life with the author’s vivid details.

Favorite Character: My favorite character in this one was Brigham. I liked the way the author portrayed him. He was strong and commanding, but yet protective of those under his care. It was entertaining to see him win most of his arguments with Rory by seduction.

The only flaw I could find in the entire book was a few misplaced phrases, but I loved the story so much I easily ignored it. I do have to say I’m glad I was able to get the story in its entirety instead of the Kindle Serial version. Reading only a few chapters at a time before waiting for the next installment? That, would’ve driven me crazy.

I’m looking forward to reading more by this author. The Kindle price right now is $1.99, which is a steal for a 434 page novel. Highly recommend. I give it 4.5 hearts.

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)
