    Mila s father is a high ranking member in the royal court When Mila finds out that there is a plan for her to marry a baron almost three times her age she decides to run away from the castle Alone in the woods and with her horse injured she finds herself in danger from a couple of thieves Out of nowhere Marc comes to her rescue and gives her a ride on his horse back to the castle Mila is immediately taken by Marc but he is the son of blacksmith and a Protestant There is unrest between the P Mila s father is a high ranking member in the royal court When Mila finds out that there is a plan for her to marry a baron almost three times her age she decides to run away from the castle Alone in the woods and with her horse injured she finds herself in danger from a couple of thieves Out of nowhere Marc comes to her rescue and gives her a ride on his horse back to the castle Mila is immediately taken by Marc but he is the son of blacksmith and a Protestant There is unrest between the Protestants and the Catholic led royal court with rumors of an uprising being planned To thank Marc, Mila invites him to the castle for a party for the unveiling of the royal jewels What neither know though is that Marc s younger brother is in on a plan to steal the jewels to fund the rebellion There were a lot of things I really loved about this book and a few that I didn t It felt like the book got off to a somewhat slow start for me even with the immediate encounter in the woods But once it got going I really got hooked on the story and the relationship between Marc and Mila Yes, this is a book with a case of the old insta love but the relationship did develop over a week under intense circumstances so that really didn t bother me but be warned to those that despise it It s a typical connection between the sheltered girl and the commoner boy, Marc was the knight in shining armor and attractive rescuer when Mila was running from a horrible arranged marriage situation so the relationship made sense to me At times the historical aspect seemed to be really good but other times it seemed little details didn t feel quite as accurate For instance, Mila s character was obviously very strong willed since we start the story with her running away but it would also seem that she would worry a bitabout her virtue or actlike a proper young lady having been raised in a castle I did completely enjoy the story line of the opposing religions and the royalty versus the commoners aspect to it though When reading I found if I ignored the few flaws I was completely engrossed in the story and loving it At the end it ended up being one of those where is the next book moments when I d just love to continue reading on to see what happens next I really think for me this one turned out to beexciting and engrossing that I was expecting with an action packed plot along with the historical romance I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Forreviews please visit

    This was my very first ARC and the very first ebook I read Exciting I know I mentioned in my recap post that I wasn t going to be reading reviewing as diligently, but this is one of the ARCs I received before I made that decision, so I will still review it, since that s the whole reason I received it in the first place Thank you Netgalley and Kensington Books I wasn t exactly sure what to expect This isn t really the type of book I would pick up off the shelves and read, based on cover This was my very first ARC and the very first ebook I read Exciting I know I mentioned in my recap post that I wasn t going to be reading reviewing as diligently, but this is one of the ARCs I received before I made that decision, so I will still review it, since that s the whole reason I received it in the first place Thank you Netgalley and Kensington Books I wasn t exactly sure what to expect This isn t really the type of book I would pick up off the shelves and read, based on cover and blurb but that cover is really pretty XD I definitely enjoyed this book It gives a really good glimpse at the beginning of the Protestant Reformation and how it affected people of different social status and background It s not perfectly accurate the dialogue is modern, not historically accurate for 1610, but I was completely okay with that The author didn t try to straddle both worlds and have partly historical dialogue and partly modern day speech habits It was completely modern But I didn t have a problem with that at all because the author was consistent, and it made it very, very readable It didn t feel dried out or drowned just for the sake of authenticity.I don t think I d ever read a book set in this exact time period before I think it represented the Reformation very well, while still remaining interesting and readable Yes, the historical aspects fade a little in lue of the fictional part, but the fiction was well based and grounded in the historical setting I thoroughly enjoyed it.The characters were strong and I enjoyed the relationships and connections various ones had with others Again, it was realistic In the first chapter, there was a lot of telling vs showing and to be honest, I groaned a little, hoping the entire book wouldn t be like that It got better as it went along though It could have been better overall, but it wasn t cringe worthy.At one point the main female character is almost raped, which is very accurate for the time period and situation But it wasn t overly detailed, which I very much appreciated While in a dire situation, two characters also shared a bed, though didn t have sex Because of my personal beliefs, I wasn t happy about it, but I could understand the situation and again, historical accuracy That doesn t mean I agreed with it.Overall, it was a good read and I don t have any specific complaints.Lions in the Garden will be available March 1, 2016.I received this book in exchange for an honest review

    I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.A historical fiction novel with a great premise I did not know much about the history of this time before reading it, but after reading this great book, but it really intrigued me I am not a big fan when the main theme is romance so I was glad that there were plenty of other themes running through the book But there was a enough romance for romance fans.I loved the action and all the plotting and scheming The I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.A historical fiction novel with a great premise I did not know much about the history of this time before reading it, but after reading this great book, but it really intrigued me I am not a big fan when the main theme is romance so I was glad that there were plenty of other themes running through the book But there was a enough romance for romance fans.I loved the action and all the plotting and scheming The characters were great, really in depth, even found myself feeling for some of the smaller characters Because of this book I would be interested in readingbooks set in this time.Often when books deal with religion, I find that it can be preachy, samey or just feels like a sermon But everything about religion in this book was fact history, no long sermons, it was all integral to the plot.I am looking forward to the next book in the series and I think it will be evenup my allet with it beingfocused on rebellion, I hope.4 out of 5 stars

    The characters, the backdrop, the history it was all so wonderful I loved this story and Mila s journey was so much fun to read She was such a child in the beginning but she had strength of character that helped her overcome various struggles and her own naivet This was an amazing beginning to a hopefully a wonderful series.
