Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be sharing my review for Escaping with Her Saxon Enemy by Sarah Rodi as part of the blog tour today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
Her tempting enemy is a chink in her armour!
Viking shield maiden, Svea Ivarsson, would far rather face Saxon warriors than be on the run with the fiercely captivating Lord Ashford Stanton, protector to the Saxon King. Reaching Ash’s family castle, Svea must swap her chainmail for life as a Lady. She can wield a sword like an expert, but no training has prepared her for craving the touch of her greatest enemy…
Escaping with Her Saxon Enemy was a gorgeous slow burn romance with two wonderful and engaging characters!
Svea had such a heartbreaking back story, one that instantly made me want the best for her. She is strong but has a vulnerability that paired well with Ash. Talking of Ash, I think I fell for him a little myself. He was very much like Svea, determined and strong but there was also a sensitive side that was revealed perfectly throughout the story. In fact the way their story unfolded made it such a joy to read.
The romance was both heartfelt and emotional at times. This combined well with the dangerous situations the characters found themselves in. Which in turn helped to create a well rounded story. Everything worked in this book, from the romance to the characters. All of which captured my attention and charmed me from start to finish. I was completely whisked away to an era where there’s danger but also love and romance.
