What a fabulous story by author Jenni Fletcher! I've been waiting for this story since the author first revealed the cover a few months ago. It was definitely worth the wait! This story takes place during the Caledonian rebellion of AD 197. I can't recall ever reading any books set in the Roman era and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I'm hoping that the author considers writing more from this era. Our hero Marius Varro is a Second Centurian and first meets our heroine to escort her to her betrothed. Marius is a swoon worthy hero, a strong and honorable man. Livia Valeria is a widow of only two months with a four year old daughter. Livia has not had an easy life, once again she is being forced into another marriage by her evil step brother who uses her to gain money and power. I loved both Livia and Marius from the very beginning of this story. Great characters along with wonderful secondary characters made this a fascinating and entertaining story. Ms. Fletcher always does a wonderful job of pulling you into the story with her wonderful writing and fabulous detail of the time period. I found myself picking up this book frequently throughout the day to read just one more page.... I'd be more than happy to revisit this era and these characters at any time! I absolutely loved everything about this story and would highly recommend it!

This is a historical romance mainly set near Hadrian’s War in Roman times. Livia Valeria is ordered by her half brother to marry someone she’s never met just two months after her first husband died. Her brother had arranged her first marriage and ruined that but she has no other options . . . until fate intervenes! I hadn’t read any romances set in this era before and I have to say that the author has created a moving - and educational - story that I thoroughly enjoyed! I learnt much about the era as Marius Varro explained situations and the Roman Army structure to Livia. Livia was a strong, female lead, determined and fierce. I loved the meeting between her and her brother towards the end of the story! There are battles to be fought, secrets to be revealed and love to be won in this brilliant romance. I hadn't read anything by Jenni Fletcher before but I’ll be checking out her previous books and, if she hasn’t already, I really hope she will be creating more stories set in this era in future. I've a new-to-me author to look out for! I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.

The Warrior's Bride Prize is a fabulous story. I greatly enjoyed it, powering through the book in under a day. I just couldn't seem to put it down. The story is interwoven beautifully with day-to-day life that really puts you in Roman England. I wish we'd gotten more time with Julia, as she would have provided a great opportunity to reveal information or get a character to realize feelings, etc. as children are so often frightfully observant. It would have been nice to have Porcia be more of a character as well. The story starts out with her seeming as though she will play a large role, but then she disappears. Especially once you find out her history with Livia, I would think Livia would confide in her more. Livia and Marius are definitely hot-headed and temperamental, perhaps more than always makes sense. They seem to fly from one extreme to the other very quickly at times. But they also share an excellent chemistry. I highly recommend The Warrior's Bride Prize. It's definitely worth picking up.
