Pages: 150

The Beltane Choice is a Novel by Nancy Jardine which details the growing relationship between Nara, a princess of the Selgovae and Lorcan the second eldest son of the leader of the Brigantes. On a revenge expedition into Selgovae territory, Lorcan stumbles across Nara, after rescuing her from a tree he finds out that she is a Selgovae and after a hot encounter he discovers that she is a virgin. As they travel together their relationship grows and grows. Nancy does an excellent job of portraying the growing emotions of the two main characters. The book was set in a very interesting historical period and the author used this to her advantage. The one negative that I really found whilst I was reading was that at times I found the plot hard to follow and had to read over sections to make sure I understood the situation. That aside it was a good read. To summarize this is not the type of book that I would normally pick up but ……

I give this book 3.5 stars

Bah, Humbug!

Bah, Humbug! by Heather Horrocks

Date Finished: 18/8/12

It is described as a romantic comedy novella and as the title suggests it is centered around Christmas. Yes I know its not christmas yet but I couldn’t give up the opportunity to read this short free ebook with its cute cover. As this book is short I will not include spoilers in my review. However I will mention that it is about two people who thought they would not find love again and I do not want to say anymore than that as the characters themselves are so likeable that you will just have to read it yourself! I loved the tale of this romance and adored the adorable main characters. Heather Horrocks writes well – I have read a few rubbish and and boring chick lits in my time, but this wasn’t one of them.
