    An Unforgettable Hero & Heroine

    The Blades of the Rose series, over time, has truly given readers some of the most unforgettable heroes and heroines that exist in literature, and this new novel is no exception. This time it's the heroine that will blow you away. Astrid was a Blade of the Rose and spent her existence protecting and shielding the magic of the world from cheating, vile men (the evil Heirs of Albion, to be exact) who wished to steal the power. Although fantastic at her responsibilities, Astrid did have a rough time, heart-wise, having loved and lost. She even removed herself from the Blades when her poor husband died in a horrific battle with the Heirs over five years ago. Since his death, her heart feels as bitterly cold as the harsh Canadian frontier that surrounds her. She never speaks with her family anymore and has chosen to live a lonely and desolate life. However, when a man named Nathan Lesperance appears in her world, things begin to change for the tough, independent woman who had thought she'd seen it all. Nathan Lesperance is what most people refer to as a Lone Wolf. He's an outcast to some, which doesn't exactly upset him. He's the very first Native attorney in Vancouver, causing neither white society nor tribe society to accept him at all. Growing up with a white family after being taken from his birth home, Nathan has never really fit in anywhere. When he finds himself standing in front of Astrid Bramfield - sent to find her in order to complete some legal business - he can almost sense that she has a sprit much like his own. The instant connection between the two reverberates off the pages. The reader can see - at the same time as Astrid does - that a certain unidentifiable magic surrounds Nathan, and that he is completely unaware of the strange power that seems to follow him wherever he goes. Nathan soon finds himself longing for the open spaces.adventure fills his heart and soul and he finds himself desperate to explore the mountains and cliffs that loom in the distance. He soon gets his wish when The Heirs of Albion appear in search of Astrid. They need the woman's help with a new very powerful object that they've acquired. Nathan can feel the fear inside him grow as he practically kidnaps Astrid in order to save her, and runs for the treacherous landscape that he's been dying to experience. Not only is this a book filled with adventure but, as always, the romance is beautifully written. The heroine, as I stated before, is strong, independent, spiritual, smart, and a perfect match for the daring, handsome hero. Action and passion at its finest! Enjoy! Until Next Time, Amy

    The latest Blade of the Rose historical romantic fantasy is another super thriller

    When Nathan Lesperance was a child, the Canadian government took him away from his tribe. By 1875, the adult Nathan has become an attorney practicing in Vancouver, but feels outside of both the Anglo and tribal worlds. Likewise both societies treat him like a leper.

    Several years later his law firm chooses Nathan to travel to the wild Northwest Territory because of his heritage as the assumption is he will feel right at home unlike the all white rest of the staff. His task is to pick up the belongings of the recently deceased Douglas Prescott. On the trek the malevolent Heirs of Albrion kidnap him, but he escapes. Former Blade of the Rose Astrid Bramfield finds him wandering lost near dead. Whereas the heirs want to use magical objects to dominate the world; the Blade wants to prevent magical abuse. With her Blade late husband as her partner, Astrid studied the Primal Source, but the Heirs killed her spouse and stole the artifact. Now the Heirs stalk the pair to obtain her knowledge and his untapped magic, Astrid and Nathan trek to the expected safety of an alleged tribe of shapeshifters.

    The latest Blade of the Rose historical romantic fantasy (see Warrior and Scoundrel) is another super thriller as the suspense never slows down while the romance simmers nice and slow as each has a history filled with doubts that desire is not enough. Fast-paced once Nathan goes north fully understanding why him and never takes a respite as Zoe Archer hits a bulls-eye with this winner.
