Publisher’s Description:

Book 7 
With a heart as cold as ice, Lady Eira Koldottir claims her late father’s throne and the frozen island of Skol after her enemy has killed off her entire family. Preparing for another attack that is sure to come, she needs every able-bodied warrior to fight with her. When two strangers appear on the island, she realizes it is an English knight and his squire. But Sir MacKay de Bar has no desire to help her. He only wants to find his way home.
MacKay is the last of the de Bar siblings to be cursed by the evil witch, Hecuba. Stranded with his squire on a frozen island with a ruthless ruler he calls the Snow Queen, his only desire is to return to England. But when his curse takes hold, he starts seeing good as evil, and anything bad looks good in his eyes – including the cold-hearted Snow Queen. 
The meaner Eira treats him, the more MacKay likes her. She wants his allegiance in her army, but he only wants her in his bed.

Can a cursed man and a hardened warrior woman come to terms when dark magic threatens to ruin their lives? Or will a curse turn into a blessing and turn enemies into lovers?

My Thoughts:

I have read several of these Tangled Tales retelling of famous fairy tales.

I’m sorry to say this is my least favorite of them all. It is the end of this series and the characters did not appeal to me.

Eira is just plain mean and nothing seems to change her demeanor.

MacKay doesn’t realize due to his curse that she obviously doesn’t like him nor is she willing to help him find his way home.

What can end MacKay’s curse and will Eira’s frozen heart ever thaw toward the final de Bar sibling who has not found his love?

I gave this book 4.0 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames. Intimacy with MacKay is the last thing on Eira’s mind as she much prefers war to love.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

The heartbroken knight. The runaway bride. A love between them that is Forbidden! 

The Heartbroken Knight: 
Frenchman Sir Claude Montague returns to England still in love with Lady Rose after she has broken his heart eight years ago. She is now married and wants him by her side in her husband’s absence, as she is about to give birth to her first baby. He would do anything for Rose, but can he let go of the thoughts that bind him to his past, making him wish he were her husband?

The Runaway Bride: 
Lady Evelina Du Pont escapes France and travels to England in disguise, running from an unwanted betrothal to an evil lord. She wants time to find a husband on her own and is looking for a man who will be loyal, protect her, and treat her kindly. Evelina is looking for love! First posing as a nursemaid, she is accepted at Briarbeck Castle where she hunts for the perfect husband. But with the suspicious Sir Claude getting in her way, she cannot restrain herself from pointing out his flaws.

With Claude’s attention taken by the boisterous but beautiful Evelina, he finds a new home for his misplaced love. However, Claude is a knight and she is naught but a servant. Falling in love with a woman of a different status is highly forbidden. 

Will a woman searching for a man to love, have her secret identity exposed by a knight who is living with a broken heart from the past? Or will the past and the future collide, causing both Claude and Evelina to change their ways before they realize the present isn’t always as it seems?

Forbidden:

Claude, is the story of the son of the hero and heroine from The Baron’s Destiny – Book 3 of the Barons of the Cinque Ports Series. While it is recommended to read that book first so that no surprises will be ruined, it is a standalone book that can be read by itself without prior knowledge of any other series.

Publisher’s Description

Brody, Captain of the Sea Mirage finds himself a victim of his mutinous crew. When he’s thrown overboard, he swims to an island. His vengeance of wanting to kill Old Man Muck, the pirate responsible for the upheaval, is what keeps him alive.

Gwendolen Fisher is the daughter of a fisherman, trying desperately to fill the shoes of her three brothers who have abandoned the family business and disappeared. When she spies a man adrift at sea, she convinces her father and the crew to help him. Once aboard the ship, the man is recognized as a pirate. Before they can address the situation, a storm at sea washes Gwen overboard. The handsome pirate named Brody jumps into the water to save her.

Hanging onto wreckage, Brody and Gwen fight nature as the sea washes them toward the legendary lovers’ caves of Cornwall. Can a pirate and a young maiden find love together or will trouble continue to follow them from both their pasts, making it impossible to be together?

This story was first seen in the Mists and Moonrise multi-author boxed set that is no longer published. However, this is the extended version with a new cover, and never-before published scenes, as well as an epilogue with a surprise ending. This is the story of the secondary character, Brody from the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. Brody’s story picks up where it left off in Reckless Highlander – Book 3 of the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series. It is best to read the Legendary Bastards of the Crown Series first. Also, it would be good to read the Seasons of Fortitude Series before this, so it doesn’t ruin the surprise in the epilogue. Either way, the book can still be read as a stand alone.

Watch for more stories in the Second in Command Series to follow.

Each will be a stand-alone book featuring a secondary character from one of Elizabeth’s many series.

My Thoughts:

I liked this well written short read. I finished it in just over one hour yesterday. I had put it aside and almost forgot it was releasing as a single title today. I noticed it on my Kindle App. on my tablet and checked to see if I had missed the publication date. I was happy to see that was not the case.

Brody has been a pirate for several years after being abducted by a group of pirates when he was ten years old. They actually had their sights on his friend, but Brody stepped in to save the day by distracting them while his friend made his escape to get help. Unfortunately he was unable to make it back in time to save Brody from his fate.

Gwen is the daughter of a fisherman and since the death of her mother she has sailed with her father disguised as a lad.

After the crew of the Sea Mirage led by scalawags Old Man Muck and Lucky force Brody to walk the plank into the sea and almost certain death, Gwen spots him afloat and saves him. Then as fate would have it due to a violent storm both she and Brody end up back in the sea.

How will this interesting first book of the Second in Command Series end?

Will Brody and Gwen find their Happily Ever After in this quick but convoluted tale.

I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.0 of 5.0 flames. There are only kisses in most of this story with one intimate encounter. You will find many familiar characters if you have read other books by Elizabeth Rose, in the epilogue.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this title from the author via Google Docs. This in no way affected my opinion of this novella which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
