I am so excited to start this new section of the blog. Throwback Thursday Book Reviews! What is TTBR you ask? Well this is where we will reviews for already published books, so not a new release and not an ARC.
I am also very excited because we have added a reviewer here at A Bit Smutty Book Blog, Dana, and she is up for first for TTBR.
Today’s review is for Bride of The Traitor by Hayley Faiman. This is the first book in the Prophecy of Sisters series. Book 2, Bride of The Sea releases August 31st, 2020.
This is some out of this world kind of love story!! I used to love historical romance, but sort of strayed away from it in the last few years. This book really reminded me why I loved that genre so much. With that being said, this is not pure historical romance, it also has a lot of fantasy elements. “That” I have never been into, but I loved it so much!!! You want time travel? You got it! You want time travel to a parallel universe where you may or may not get a flying horse talking to you? You got that too! You want a badass, Viking like hero? Check! Badass heroine who goes from talking on her cellphone in present times to waking up in a stone castle back in unknown times? Double check! There’s a love story at the center of this book for sure, a great one at that, but there is so much of the back story that I enjoyed as well, the secondary characters were so interesting and well developed. This was such an awesome surprise from Hayley Faiman, and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
