About the Book

Tomboy Alex Bonham has fought her male peers tooth and nail to prove herself worthy to become captain of the king’s guard. When her country is invaded by Danes, she is ordered to take the king’s younger son, a charming but irresponsible rake, away from the front lines for safekeeping.

Alex walks a difficult line, trying to balance her growing attraction to Prince Holden with her dedication to duty and her responsibility to keep him safe from robbers, Danes…and even himself. But when they are drawn into the struggle to defend East Anglia from occupation, both the prince and his captain must grow. Can spoiled Prince Holden evolve into a good man who could lead the kingdom–one Alex can trust with her heart?

Excerpt

“Attack me,” Alexandra told the prince.

“I couldn’t,” he demurred, and she put her hands on her hips, exasperated.

“Stop being a fool.” She stood up and shook out her arms, ready. “Come at me like you mean to knock me down.”

“It wouldn’t be fair. You know what we agreed about contests of strength.”

She rolled her eyes. “You weren’t listening. This isn’t a contest of strength, though what you’ve learned from Carl is mostly strength-based. What I have in mind is a contest of skill, wits, and know-how, none of which you have. Are you going to attack me, or are you going to give up on your training?”

The taunt sufficed to goad him forward. He lunged, a little half-hearted. She caught his thumb and turned it just so. In half a second, she’d pushed him up onto his tiptoes and jerked his arm up behind his shoulders. His skin was smooth and hot, slick with sweat. He smelled salty and musky, very male in her nostrils.

“What the hell did you do?” He gasped, shocked.

“That is how a woman becomes captain of the king’s guards,” she told him coolly.

Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy Her Heart’s Liege by Olivia Fields in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I went in to the reading of Her Heart’s Liege for the summer fun of days gone by. I grew up reading historical romance novels handed down by my mother and I learned to devour them by the brown-bag load that were traded amongst a group of her friends, and me, before they went out to the next garage sale. I learned to read without thinking, the mind-numbing sameness keeping me entertained when the world was too unpleasant to hold my attention.

I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the writing and the characters in the novel, Her Heart’s Liege by Olivia Fields. This is not the same old, fair maiden meet noble man romance. The story develops from a place that I don’t remember encountering before, and I love the way Alex and the Prince come together!

Hilarity and romance abound as Captain Alex is forced to remove Prince Holden from danger. Carl, Captain Alex’s second in command, and the Captain of the Royal Guard take Holden, the spoiled younger son, on a journey that ultimately makes him into the man Alex, or Alexandra, can love.

I highly recommend Her Heart’s Liege by Olivia Fields, along with a box of tissues for the laughter and the tears, and give Her Heart’s Liege five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee.

    I agree, seeing the depth of the character in a romance is so satisfying: being able to relate to them and feel they are as good as real, watching them grow and learn and fall deeply in love. Beautifully done in this story!

          • Olivia Fields July 14, 2015 at 9:00 pm

            I am! My publisher has quite a backlog, so it should come out sometime next summer. Here’s the short blurb:

            Fredric is a reluctant incubus with a traumatic past: the accidental death of his first lover as he fed earned him a powerful enemy among the shapeshifting naga.

            Forced to consume sexual pleasure in order to survive, Fred has spent centuries preying on women’s dreams from hiding, until he finally fell in love.

            Now the ancient vendetta resurfaces in the form of a curse, forcing Fredric out of the shadows. He must fight to save his beloved from the fatal consequences of his own admiration. Can he find a way for the woman of his dreams to survive their love?
