Synopsis

Elliot Allen has known nothing but loss in her life. Becoming an orphan twice over, she has no one and fills her lonely days living vicariously through the adventurous stories of love in the historical romance novels she adores. Little does she know that a trip to visit the Scandinavian lands once occupied by Vikings would catapult her back nearly one-thousand years in the past like a heroine in one of her favorite books.

Thorin is the newest chieftain of his clan after the unexpected death of his eldest brother. Used to life as the baby brother, he’s done nothing but chase skirts and glory in battle. Is he really ready to lead an entire village? And would anyone try to challenge his seat as the leader of the richest clan on Iceland?

Just as Thorin attempts to find his way as the chieftain, a mysterious woman with skin of bronze and hair as dark as night is dragged before him. Now as his captive, her beauty sets his blood on fire. Her spirit challenges him at every turn. And his weakness for her threatens his precarious place as chieftain.

Ellie’s fear of losing those she loves, jealousy and danger lurking around every corner, and being from two different worlds could rip them apart.

Will Ellie stay? Or will she be forced to return to her own time? 

Find out in the sweeping time travel romance, Bound Through Time: Past.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a wonderfully written historical romance! I absolutely loved Ellie and Thorin’s story. Ellie is thrown back in time where a hot Viking has her chained to his wall. Their chemistry is amazing. Ellie fears her love is cursed and Thorin doesn’t care if it is he just wants her to feel for him what he feels for her. This book gave me all the warm and fuzzy feelings and I loved it. I definitely recommend this!

When A Scot Ties The Knot By Tessa Dare!

Synopsis

On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shyly pretty and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.

A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter … and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.

Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He’s wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters… and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a nice historical romance. Madeline is horribly shy and has panic attacks in large groups. Before she’s set for her debut London season she creates a fake fiancé. Over the years she writes this Captain Logan MacKenzie like she’s writing in a diary since she believes the letters aren’t actually being received by anyone. But they are and he shows up to collect what he’s due…after she had given him a heroic death. Which she later comes to regret since it had such an effect on him. Logan wasn’t pleasant at first but it was understandable. He just wanted to give his men the peace and land that was promised them. Maddie just wanted to live her life the way she wanted but when what she wanted changed it was so sweet! I thought they had good chemistry but I did get tired of them almost consummating their marriage and then stopping.

This book was good but had some cringe worth references to lady parts(breeding parts) I had to reread the sentence to make sure I saw correctly😂😂.
