3 Love Stories and a Linky


It's almost Valentine's Day and I've got 3 fun love stories to share with you today! These are all relatively clean romances that are between young adult and new adult appropriate with plenty of feel-good moments. Click on the titles in blue to learn more.



Pippa of Lauramore (The Eldentimber Series Book 1) by [Tapscott, Shari L.]

My Review:

Pippa of Lauramore is a fantasy romance with great characters and plenty of action and adventure. It's about a princess named Pippa who is hoping someone other than the man her father has chosen will win her hand in marriage at the tournaments. She interferes right from the beginning hoping to guarantee that the man she chooses will win. Things don't always go as planned and her man isn't up to speed. Unfortunately, the man that she really cares about isn't worthy enough in her father's eyes to compete for her hand. The worst part is that her father's original choice for her might just win after all!



Elissa Blue: Book One of The Winged by [Perry, T.K.]

My Review:

Elissa Blue is a love story through and through. If you're looking for plenty of giggles and sigh worthy moments, then you'll enjoy this book! Surprisingly, this is supposed to be a dystopian/science-fiction novel, but only mildly so. A genetically modified human race exists with new abilities, but also limitations. This was explained to some extent, but other things like why prayer was banned were not. The story focuses on relationships and avoiding the pitfalls of sexual desire. Euphemisms are not used, which can be shocking for some readers. Otherwise, it's a relatively clean romance and appropriate for mature teenagers and new adults.


Captive Rebel



My Review:

Captive Rebel is a fast paced adventure romance novella. I enjoyed the chemistry between captive and captor. I liked how the good guys and bad guys were on both sides of the conflict. It reminds me of a medieval story, but the setting is supposed to be dystopian. There are little nods to the world that once was, but these didn't fit well and felt contrived. I think it should have been set in an alternate universe instead. Overall, it was fun to read.
