About the Author
Author Suzanna Lynn is a full-time mom of three beautiful, energetic children and spends her days with them and her husband in a small town nestled in the deep rolling hills of Missouri. Growing up in the Ozarks, as a child Suzanna spent her days wandering the fields and woods surrounding her home. While most children avoided the dark corners of the woods, she sought it out, imagining them to be filled with fairies, dragons and all number of creatures. Having not lost her childhood imagination, Suzanna has written numerous poems, songs and short stories that won various awards in high school and college. However, in 2014 she decided to stop wishing she could publish a book and made the dream a reality when she released The Bed Wife. That first novella gave birth to two more books, completing the series, and stirred the embers of a new five-book series called The Untold Stories, which is currently in the works. When she's not busy writing or spending time with her family, Suzanna loves to draw and paint, as well as scrapbook. She also has been known to volunteer with her children's school, the local Ladies Auxiliary veterans group and even the local zoo!

I really enjoyed this. While it was novella-length, there was still plenty of story. It is set in a sort of medieval period and location (both fictional and never specified exactly when or where), so I was a bit reluctant to read it, thinking it would be too complicated to wrap my head around, but it wasn't. It's a great story--especially for a debut book, and you'll definitely be read to read the next two installments. The story itself is part historical, part fantasy, and part romance. I've read similar "bed wife" themes in sci-fi/speculative fiction and dystopian books, but never in this type of setting, so it took me into another world and genre, which was nice.
EEEKK!! I love this book! The Bed Wife is the first book of The Bed Wife Chronicles. From the start up to the last, I was addicted to this book. Anyway, the story and the characters of this book are amazing. The characters, Baylin, a prince who is looked up to and respected by his kingdom. He’s an amazing prince, a gentleman and will do anything for his kingdom. Luana, a woman who captured Prince Baylin’s attention. Both were childhood friends but with the circumstance, they were distanced with each other. When they cross paths again, things get more exciting! With the tradition, the royals will choose a bed wife. With this their friendship and trust will be tested. Ms. Suzanna nailed it! Love this! **Note: This book ends with a cliffhanger**
I love this book! It's a fast read with a great mix of steam, fantasy and romance.
