Overview

To Conquer the Heart of a King by J.S. Laurenz

A woman who knows the future but not her own past. The son of a king who must fight for his crown. They will come together to get what they each desire. Their pact will turn to passion...just as intrigue threatens to tear them apart.

Before Lukas of Falkenberg returns to the Black Forest to take the throne from his dying father, he pays a visit to the nameless and sightless Seer at the Cloister of Mariendorf. He takes her captive to use her intuition to establish his reign. She willingly trades the punishing confines of the cloister for a palace prison in the hope of gaining her ultimate freedom. Although blind, she can see what the future king cannot-the needs of his subjects. She will win them over, but can she conquer the heart of a king before his half-brother Magnus separates them in a plot even she cannot foresee?

Gives you a feel for that time period. Since it moves along at a good clip, sometimes it leaves you wishing for more. Like the author left out a whole battle scene. But I guess if I wanted to read about battles, I’d be reading non-fiction. The plus side is the romance was always in the forefront and the characters had good chemistry. They were adversaries in a way and he refused to give her her freedom, but there was a trust there that made the whole relationship tantalizing and appealing. I enjoyed the thread that ran through this about truth and how easy it is to manipulate it. Like does the Seer really see the future, or does she make her own future by knowing how people will interpret what she says? I liked that she was clever and courageous, despite her blindness and captivity. But fate also plays a role. It was a good balance.

I liked this book, but it was short. 153 pages long. It was romantic, and had a stirring plot.

Well written story (although here and there some of the plot twists felt a little rushed) with interesting characters and intriguing plot. My biggest beef with it would be that it felt throughout like it was supposed to be a medieval story, but was actually set in the late 1700s, which was a little disorienting.

It was a good story mostly but the plot needed some serious fleshing out, I felt like I read an outline rather then a full story, otherwise I enjoyed it I suppose.
