Publisher’s Description:

Seasons of Fortitude Series – Book 1

Spring has been raised as a warrior, always trying to please her father of Viking descent. Through the years she’s tried to be the son he wished her to be. At a young age she’s chosen the bow and arrow of a dead man as her weapon, and now she’s mastered the skill. Growing up without a mother, the only skill she hasn’t mastered is how to be a lady and someday a mother. But now her father decides to marry her off to their enemy, Shaw Gordon, in order to get inside the castle walls. Wanting to be a part of overtaking the castle, she goes along with the plan.

Shaw Gordon, chieftain and laird, is a widower with two boys and one unruly adolescent daughter. He decides it’s time to take a wife again, but never expects to be presented with his enemy’s daughter. The woman is fierce, and nothing like the mother he wants for his children. The Gunn clan has been an enemy of the Gordons for as long as he can remember. While an alliance would be good, he doesn’t trust them. As he’s about to reject the offer, he spots the coveted bow and arrows of his late father in the girl’s hands. In order to retrieve it, he does the only thing he can besides fighting – he marries her.

Can two enemies push aside their differences for the benefit of all? And can a woman draw strength from herself as well as from her new husband when she discovers the horrible secret of her past – that her entire life is nothing but a lie?

This series is about the sisters of the bastard triplets from the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. Spring is the sister that was stolen as a baby. It is recommended to read that series first, but not required, as this book stands on its own.

Watch for the other books in the series coming soon:

Summer’s Reign – Book 2
Autumn’s Touch – Book 3
Winter’s Flame – Book 4.
Also, be sure to read the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series: Destiny’s Kiss (Prequel)
Restless Sea Lord – Book 1
Ruthless Knight – Book 2
Seasons of Fortitude Series – Book 1

My Thoughts:

I really liked this first book in Elizabeth Rose’s new series.

Since I had just read another of her books that I found not to my taste and I did not care for the cover art of this one I was very skeptical about this read.
I was pleasantly surprised.

Spring has been raised as a warrior and can’t see herself as the wife of any man, much less her enemy. How can she be a wife and mother when she has no idea what is expected.

Shaw Gordon is the laird of his clan and a widowed father of three children, two boys and a precocious younger daughter.

When the children meet Spring the eldest son is intimidated by her warrior’s skills and takes an instant dislike for her. The other two children, however are totally enamored by her skills and attach themselves to her hip.

Will Spring betray her new husband or will she find herself so in love that she can’t possibly do the bidding of the man who she has thought to be her father for most of her life?

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5 flames.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the author’s publicist to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have read and reviewed voluntarily.
