My Review of

Summer’s Reign

 Seasons of Fortitude Series Book 2
(Medieval Romance)

Publisher’s Description:

At a young age, Summer has sacrificed herself for the sake of her family by marrying the evil and abusive Baron Mowbray of Suffolk. A few years after birthing him a son, the baron mysteriously dies, leaving her toddler heir to his estate. When Summer’s abusive husband is found dead in his bed, the rumor is on everyone’s lips that he was murdered. The king grants Summer one month to find and marry a man of her choice. But Summer would never consider marrying any relative of her late husband, especially not his domineering nephew. 

Sir Warren Mowbray returns from battle to find his uncle has died and with him went the man’s promise that Warren would inherit his holdings. Now, to add insult to injury, the king has assigned him as the widow’s guardian and advisor while the woman chooses a husband. Once he arrives at the castle, he discovers Summer is a beautiful, smart, determined woman but with a mind of her own. He plans to woo her, but she wants nothing to do with him. 

Can a strong, determined woman and a controlling warrior find love between them or will they destroy each other first? 

My Thoughts:

What starts out as a serious story of an abused bride turns into a delightful mixture of mystery and love with a decidedly comical nature.

Summer chose to marry the baron in the place of another. After all he only wanted a bride to give him sons. After three unsuccessful pregnancies, she has given birth to a stillborn son.

The cruel man states she is to report to his chambers the same night after giving birth to submit to him once again in an effort to again conceive. Summer falls asleep and fails to appear until the next morning. When she goes in search of her young son who had been taken from her by the baron after she gave birth to the stillborn babe she finds her husband dead. He is thought to have died in his sleep until the arrival of his nephew who suspects foul play.

Sir Warren is the baron’s nephew who has been assigned the duty of being Summer’s guardian by the king. He doesn’t immediately suspect that his uncle’s death is not just what it seems, but he soon begins to think otherwise.

Can Warren and Summer get past this inauspicious beginning and find love?

This story takes a comical turn when Warren begins to desire Summer and due to stress and a lack of sleep acts on his desire by sleepwalking.
Summer constantly finds him in her room and in her bed. Although nothing untoward happens she decides to make him think otherwise by planting a story of love making in the mind of Warren’s manservant.

This is a story filled with mystery and the search for a murderer but still has a comical nature.

I liked this book more than I did book #1, Spring’s story, Highland Spring.

Both are well written but to me this one was more compelling.

I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5 flames.

Most of the scenes that could have been really heated turned comical because of our hero’s habit of sleepwalking.

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

I reviewed this book as a single title, July 03, 2017

With a letter in her hand and a Highlander at her back, what could go wrong? When his clan convicts Cameron Robeson of thievery, kidnapping, and treason in 1598 Scotland, the last thing he thought his cousin would do was banish him to the future. With revenge against Laird Kirkwall Gunn fresh on his mind, and the image of a woman left behind weighing on his heart, he passes the time doing an old woman’s bidding. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the New England Highland Games, he dreams of returning to his time, alone. His plans go awry when a comely lass wearing the Mackenzie plaid lands at his feet. Worried about her friend lost in the past, Iona Mackenzie searches for answers among the tents and vendors at the New England Highland Games. She needs help, but who can she trust? Her father? The handsome blacksmith? Or, the Viking look-a-like. The tall, golden-haired Highlander makes her legs turn to jelly. Too bad she’s shoved romance to a back seat.

When danger, intrigue, and threats surround them, feelings between Iona and Cameron grow hot and steamy.

His ancestry is a mystery. When Skye falls into his bed—beaten, bloody and beautiful—Jake must choose to trust her, or turn his back on the only woman he’s loved across time.
