Frostmourne. It was caught in a hovering, jagged chunk of ice, the runes that ran the length of its blade glowing a cool blue. Below it was a dais of some sort, standing on a large gently raised mound that was covered in a dusting of snow. A soft light, coming from somewhere high above where the cavern was open to daylight, shone down on the runeblade. The icy prison hid some details of the sword's shape and form, exaggerated others. It was revealed and concealed at the same time, and all the more tempting, like a new lover imperfectly glimpsed through a gauzy curtain. Arthas knew the blade -- it was the selfsame sword he had seen in his dream when he first arrived. The sword that had not killed Invincible, but that had brought him back healed and healthy. He'd thought it a good omen then, but now he knew it was a true sign. This was what he had come to find. This sword would change everything. Arthas stared raptly at it, his hands almost physically aching to grasp it, his fingers to wrap themselves around the hilt, his arms to feel the weapon swinging smoothly in the blow that would end Mal'Ganis, end the torment he had visited upon the people of Lordaeron, end this lust for revenge. Drawn, he stepped forward.

My Thoughts

I love my WoW loar so of course I will love this book. This book is more or less a written novel of the game Warcraft 3. If you have played the game you recognise it but that didn't really bother me. the book is very well written and I like how we get to follow Arthas from a very young age and see how he changed and became the Lich king.

The only thing I do not understand is that, Jaina is "telling" the story to a friend most parts of the book. This is not possible because the story is from different persons view and she was not their. She can't know what Arthas and Sylvanas and Kael Thas and everyone else were doing and feeling. This is a big flaw according to me and this is the part that take one star away.

Otherwise a very interesting book that I enjoyed reading. Now I just want Arthas to drop Invincible to me in ICC... but why would he do it now when he hasn't done it for the past years... :P

After making a wager of marriage to settle her father's gambling debts, Ella Bowen-Thorn Renwick escaped the husband she foolishly began to fall for and disappeared into the Scottish countryside carrying a secret. Four years later, and the owner of her own bakery, she is still not free of the demands of men when a violent and anonymous blackmailer threatens her, her livelihood...and her daughter. And then, there is him... Viscount Renwick still mourns the wife he began to love before her untimely death--that is until he discovers her alive and well living in Scotland. Now, Devon's face to face with the wife he thought he'd buried and the daughter he never knew existed. He'd like nothing more than to welcome Ella back into his arms, but mysterious and troubling incidents and a history with an unloving father have Ella trusting no one. But, if Renwick convinces his wife he's the husband she always dreamed of and the father their daughter deserves, will the scandalous secret the blackmailer is holding threaten their future together once more?

My Thoughts
I really enjoy reading historical romance book. The only think I do not like is that so many women are weak and cant really do anything on their own. When I started reading “Dealing with the Viscount” I was afraid it will be like any other book but I was wrong .The story and build-up is perfect and we have a strong female character who can take care of her and her daughter, both financially and literally. When you have great characters in a book you tend to like the book better and so is the case for me.

I wish I would be able to write a long review but pain makes it hard and I dont want to retell the story as in so many other review. I hope I will one day to be able to go back and write a longer review.

I will end it will that I really enjoyed reading this book and I really hope Clair Brett  will write more stories like this, in this world because I really enjoyed it, and love this story! A really good read that I can recommend.

Volatile times engulfed 1715 Scotland. Threats of a Jacobite uprising hung in the air. Lady Juliet Kingston traveled to Glenhaven with her entourage to meet and marry Laird MacLaren’s son with the hopes their union might help calm the rumblings of war—an Englishwoman weds a Scottish Highlander. Juliet longs for home and the man she left behind, until she meets Ross MacLaren. Both are stubborn and strong, but find love. Now a threat comes from a different front, one Juliet cannot fight. She gives up her husband and home to protect those she has come to love and returns to England with John, her former beau. Will she ever find her way back?

My Thoughts
The story is very well written and it captures the reader straight away. The good think about this book is that it feels so real and that made it fun to read. The length of the book was perfect, some historical romance books are either too short for the story or too long and have a lot of emptiness. Here we have a story who fills out the entire book without being too much or too little. You can feel that the Author has spent a lot of time to make this story perfect in every possible way.

I absolutely love the characters and how we get to know them. They are funny, smart, sexy and helps to bring the story forward and make it deeper and more worth reading. What I do like is that the story is so different from a lot of similar books and that Lady Juliet is a strong female character who dares to do her own things and risk things for what she loved and believe in.

If you love historical romance novels, then this one is a must read.
