I loved this book Eleanor s father takes her to a ival king as a peace offering The ival king Brac Goch has killed her beloved brother Richard so she is not happy about this She s constantly looking for a way to escape and make her way back home However the longer she stays the she ealizes that she may have been wrong about him after allThe pacing of this book is fantastic We get little bits of information at a time which kept me endlessly eading one chapter until I was done We know that Eleanor doesn t want to be Brac s wife but as she starts piecing things together she ealizes that she s never been given the true story of what happened in the past or even what s currently happening Her father has treated her poorly her entire life and she expects that treatment so she s pleasantly surprised by Brac s behaviorEleanor s a healer and is the only one who can see the ghost of Brac s first wife who leaves her messages advising her not to trust him Brac isn t thrilled with her healing abilities and it takes a while before she finds out why It was interesting to watch Eleanor adjust to a different culture and ealize that the Welsh and English were alike than she originally thought She met some great characters that helped her along the way and helped her see the truthI ve only ead a short story by Julie Daines which I enjoyed and since I loved this book she is an author I will definitely be eading of in the future and am already looking forward to her next bookI eceived a copy of this book to eview My opinion is 100% my ownMel s Shelves 45 starsWow this book eally took me by surprise I found myself glued to the pages and got absolutely nothing done for several hours because I couldn t put it down Set in times of knights and castles it is a marriage of convenience story with a creepy mystery paranormal twistEvery time I thought I had things figured out something else would happen Eleanor is practically sold off by her father to Brach the iron king to keep peace between their lands She only knows her future husband as a war hungry monster and murderer That is what she has been told of him and all anyone will tell her She soon learns that nothing and no one is who or what she thought or what they seemedWithout trying to.

Give too much away Brach uickly made his way to one of my top favorite heroes I adored his character A true knight in shining armor I was completely shocked by the spooky turn the book took and found myself having the hardest time setting it down It did end a bit abruptly and I was loving it so much I was wishing there was another 100pgs at leastbut I m REALLY hoping there will be a book 2 so we are eunited with some of the characters Hopefully they will have their happily ever after as well There were a few time period issuesnot that I m an expert by any means that bothered me a bit A few phrases here and there that didn t seem to uite fit along with some decorum problemsbut honestly all in all I loved ituick clean ead although there is talk of dark magic and evil spirits I eally enjoyed it and just writing this eview makes me want to ead it again I kindly eceived a copy of this book from Covenant Communications via Netgalley in eturn for an honest eview Is that a chicken you e stitching Odd choiceIt s a flower I just had to start this eview with this uote It made me giggle so much This book was unbelievable sweet clean and darn ight cuteLet s discuss the plot Eleanor de Lacy is the daughter of Baynard de Lacy earl of Wrexbury who has been ordered to be the sacrificial lamb of her peopleShe must forever be linked to a man whose name strikes fear in the heart of her father s staunches warriors She must forever be the source of a treatyShe must enter an arranged marriage with Brac Goch A great Warrior King The language is foreign the people foreign everything is bizarre and strangeBut one thing that stands out the most is the ed headed king who is nothing like Eleanor and the Iron King was a good middle of the oad historical omance with a mysterious paranormal twist This was a super uick ead that held my interest well Eleanor was a likable enough mc and Brac Goch was a decent love interest In case it wasn t obvious while I did enjoy this novel and found the story to be interesting overall I found the book to be a bit average It was nice and while I had no big complaints while eading this I also probably wouldn t bother ecommending this to anyone It just doesn t stand out but it was still a worthy contende.
