Rendezvous With A Romance

I love paranormal and historical romance novels. I love talking about books and finding out about new authors and books to read. I also love supporting and promoting my favorite authors.

Once Upon a Rose (La Vie en Roses Book 1)
Laura Florand
Shadowbound (The Dark Arts Book 1) - Bec McMaster

I did enjoy the story and I will most definitely read more from it, but I don't yet love it like London Steampunk. Initially, this series didn't grab me like McMaster's London Steampunk series. It starts out a bit slowly but it does pick up. There was something about the characters and conflict that didn't have the spark and flair and depth that Blade and Honoria and their crew had. Except for Sebastian and Cleo. They stood out more than Lucan and Ianthe.  The story does pick up and gets interesting the more Cleo and Sebastian come into play. Ianthe and Lucien also grow stronger as characters and as a couple when they begin to share secrets and trust. Throw in a demon, the Prime discovering that the son thought dead is alive and that he loves a woman who risks her very life to help him, and the story definitely picks up and gets stronger. By the end of book 1, I am definitely ready for more. The conflict and villains were well thought out and strong, they are formidable and daunting enough to make the battle to win believable. The final battle is big and dramatic. Lots of pieces moving in tandem and all coming together to make an enjoyable story. The series has potential.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
