it was amazing

Fortune and love favor the brave. - Ovid

Lord Lyon amassed a fortune. He even lent some of it to Prinny. But he is not brave enough to love – he fears a century’s old curse:

When a Chattan male falls in love,
strike his heart with fire from Above.

Yet Lyon desires children and his solicitor recommends the matchmaking services of Mrs. Martin. Lyon does not realize until he meets the widowed Mrs. Martin that she is his childhood friend. He abandoned her when his father revealed the curse. Lyon asks Thea to find him a bride that he will not like but will give him children. This kicks off the adult relationship between Lyon and Thea – a business partnership that succumbs to passion, love, and hope. Along the way, their growing attraction has a pinball effect on others who must also find courage to face their own fates.

Maxwell is known for delving into relationships and she is in top form with LYON’S BRIDE. Maxwell delivers the whole package – families and friends who work through their fears to find happiness within their lives. I am a slow reader yet I read LYON’S BRIDE in two days – it is a compelling story that quickly drew me into the characters’ strengths and struggles. Maxwell’s writing flows from chapter to chapter as she reminds readers why we read romance – that love can conquer all. Maxwell treats us to a unique twist of the HEA, one that you will have to read for yourself!
