When Tish Thawer messaged me to ask if I would beta read her final book in the series, I jumped at the opportunity. When I read Scent of a White Rose, I was a blogger and was thrilled with the first book in the Rose Trilogy. Now, three books and a novella later, I’m an even happier camper. I cannot help but feel a tinge of sadness now that we’ve reached the end of this series though, it’s bitter sweet for sure. I’ve grown attached to Rose & Christian and now they are all “grown up”/ “evolved”, if you will, into the people they were always meant to be. Rose has really been through a lot and thankfully Christian loves her enough to navigate them through it all. He risked everything to keep the one person he can never live without…Rose.
Tish Thawer did an amazing job of pulling this story together and giving us the reader the ending that not only we deserved, but that all of the characters deserved as well. I’m not and never will be about spoilers. I love the notion that a story unfolds for each person differently and I have no intention of spoon feeding anyone my perspective. You’ll just have to buy the book or the series if you have not yet discovered Ms. Thawer and find out just how remarkable her characters and stories are for yourself.
Bravo on another job well done! Can’t wait to read what you are writing next and oh, I’ll always clear my schedule if you need someone to read your books. *wink*

Grey.; I think her novels are well written with fantastic characters, steamy scenes, and strong females to stand up to the pure alpha males she creates. The latest and I do believe final book in the Bellum Sister series, The Fallen King, was a great conclusion. I know that like many others, I felt a longing to know what happened to Alrik at the end of Ties that Bind and thankfully, T.A. Grey read my mind and wrote his story.
Alrik is broken and damaged by the many wicked things his mother did to him but he finally has a chance to free himself and find absolution. The only problem is–– he’ll have to kill someone to do it. Normally this wouldn’t affect the hardened warrior but that was before he met Abbigail. She appears to be weak and unable to handle herself but nothing could be further from the truth. Abbigail has strength that cannot be measured and she makes certain Alrik knows it at every turn. Oh and did I forget to mention that Abbigail is connected to Chloe, Willow, and Lily? *Huge cheeky grin*
Another fantastic book, T.A.!
If you pick up the Bellum Sisters series, you won’t be disappointed! Chains of Frost (The Bellum Sisters #1) Bonds of Fire (The Bellum Sisters #2) Ties That Bind (The Bellum Sisters #3) The Fallen King (The Bellum Sisters #4)
A special note for T.A.: *Fans self before typing* If you ever get a whim; I wouldn’t mind knowing more about Aidan. His vampire sexiness was, *grin* well…hot! :P (less)
