Lord of Her Heart

Lord of Her HeartLord of Her Heart by Sherrinda Ketchersid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love a good medieval read! What’s more romantic than knights, fair ladies, and castles? Sherrinda Ketchersid nails all of that, plus a bit of mystery, a dash of danger, and a hearty sprinkling of humor. This is not a dark, gothic read. It’s an engaging story with characters who’ll stay with you long after you’ve closed the book. If you’re new to the medieval time period, this is a great book to start with! (Beware: this time period can be addicting.)

The Princess Spy

The Princess Spy (Hagenheim, #5)The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another medieval story with that fairytale feel, but I have to admit that I’ve no idea what fairytale sparked this story. A fun read with some returning characters from previous stories by Melanie Dickerson. It’s best to read the Hagenheim books in order. And read them all! They might be labeled as “young adult,” but hey … we’re all young at heart.

The Captive Maiden

The Captive Maiden (Hagenheim, #4)The Captive Maiden by Melanie Dickerson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another delightful medieval fairytale from Melanie Dickerson. This is a retelling of Cinderella and it’s beautifully done. I especially love how she did this without the mystical element to it. It’s entirely plausible and will keep you reading if for no other reason that to see how she did it! No spoiler, you have to read this one for yourself. 🙂

The Merchant’s Daughter

The Merchant's Daughter (Hagenheim, #2)The Merchant’s Daughter by Melanie Dickerson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this story. It was a good twist on Beauty and the Beast. The characters were likable and there was more to the story than just the attraction between the hero and heroine. Love the medieval setting!
