About the Book:
Holden has faced all manner of horrors on the battlefield. But marriage to “the tyrant of Tiernay” is still a worrying prospect—until he glimpses Helen in the flesh. What flesh it is…soft, lush, made for his touch. If she weren’t so intent on thinking up devious ways to prevent consummating their bond, Helen would see how perfect they are together, and that a marriage begun as enemies can turn to absolute pleasure.

More Blister Than Bliss
For a romance, it was more like romance lite. The sexual tension was non-existent. The hero--this supposed brutal warrior--was a physically large man who was really a beta in alpha disguise. He seemed more like bumbling idiot than an alpha warrior. I couldn't take him seriously as the hero because he never did anything heroic. He just got beat up a lot--by the heroine and his own brother. He spent more time laying in bed--recuperating NOT having sex--than he did being a 'hero'.
The heroine was a harpy who though chew garlic would get her fiance to back off and call off the wedding. She spent most of the book covered in a horrific stench. While this plot device was funny for the first three minutes, it got old quickly.
Overall, this book was more like a safe for work read for a 16 year old. I was bored out of my mind by the time the H/h finally got married.
I received this book because they wanted me to read it an review it. And so I have.
