An intriguing and well written medieval romance. The heroine Gwyn is a healer descended from an ancient line of healers through her mother and the Viking bloodline of her father. When a tentative truce between the Nord Vikings and the Scottish Highlanders is broken in a deadly skirmish, Gwyn, caught in her seer sister's prophecy, follows the enemy to heal the dying. She is held captive and ends up married to the Scottish warden's son Simon. These are the epic last days of the Viking hold over the Scots and the coming of the war with their new enemy to the south. A beautiful love story is entwined in the politics of these medieval days. I liked it! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

While not generally a fan of romance, this historical romance story sucked me in. It's a well written, character driven story with characters that feel like people you know. I had intended to read a bit, and then go for a run. I never made it for my run!

Don't let the status of "romance" keep you from reading this book. It is so much more. There is just such a good mix of history, thrills and the unknown to keep you engaged from start to end. Jean Grant has done her research and weaves a story of magic and greed for power around the facts, and if someone falls in love along the way, so be it. I found her descriptions of characters, looks and demeanor, to be complete enough that I could picture them. I love it when a book runs in my head like a movie! I had already read A Hundred Kisses, the book for which this is the prequel, so I appreciated now having the back story.

I loved this book. Perhaps even more than the first (second?) book. A Hundred Breaths is the prequel to A Hundred Kisses and Gwyn quickly became a protagonist I adored even more than Deirdre in AHK. She's feisty and fun and doesn't hesitate to threaten a man twice her size with a dagger. She's also in touch with her healing abilities and the paranormal twist is one I love! Grant has done another amazing job at weaving together historical, mystical, and romance to create the perfect combination read. If you're looking for a historical romance with a touch of magic, this is right up your alley!

A few years ago, I was delighted to discover author Jean M. Grant and her wonderful debut novel, A Hundred Kisses. It was a non-trashy romance with historical fiction and mystical elements mixed in, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I love a GOOD romance-- actual, believable love stories, and bonus points for not having embarrassing half-naked people on the cover, haha! That being said, I eagerly awaited A Hundred Breaths, which is actually a prequel to A Hundred Kisses. And it did not disappoint! Not only does it have a wonderful romance, but the story itself exceeded my wildest expectations. I was hooked from the very first chapter. As a prequel, this book is (obviously) set in an earlier time period, where the Scottish islanders are having run-ins with some, shall we say, less-than-friendly vikings. This book has one of the greatest antagonists I have read in a long time-- a character so disturbed and disturbing that you can't wait to see what he does next. In the middle of all the strife, the romance that develops is organic and believable. And the ending... I won't give it away, but I love how it ties everything together. In short, if you are looking for great reads, I highly recommend both A Hundred Breaths and A Hundred Kisses. Definitely read A Hundred Kisses first-- you will notice all sorts of references to it when you read A Hundred Breaths. These are fantastic books by a relatively new author, and I look forward to whatever she writes next!
