Review- Masquerade Marriage by Anne Greene

I did not intend to commit my entire Sunday to this book (after all, it's Nano month and I'm supposed to be writing). But when I picked up Masquerade Marriage this morning, the first chapter hooked me and the following pages propelled me toward the end!

Anne Greene crafted two irresistible characters (one of which was a hunky highlander), threw them into a heap of danger, and ratcheted up the tension with each passing chapter. The romance in this novel is pitch perfect and though it's based on a marriage of convenience, I didn't find the storyline predictable at all.

In fact, my stomach was clenched right up until the last page wondering if Brody and Megan were actually going to get their happily ever after. I won't tell you if they did or not, you'll just have to read it to find out. :P

If I could change one thing about this book, I would choose something that has nothing to do with the writing. I wish that the cover more accurately portrayed what a compelling story this is. Even for e-books, covers are what catch my attention first and I think this one was just a little too dark to do justice to such a fantastic story.

Want more info? Here's the publisher's blurb:


A SECRET LIST
To protect his loved ones and escape the dark fate of his brothers, a noted warrior abandons his identity. Hiding from relentless soldiers who want him dead, Brody MacCaulay vows to protect the woman he loves more than life, more than freedom, more than Scotland. But his presence throws her into danger.

A VOW HONORED
To escape an arranged marriage to an abusive noble, a Lowland Lady weds a stranger to save his life. But vows spoken do not make a marriage, especially when Megan MacMurry holds a different love inside her heart.

A SACRIFICE MADE
Outlawed, and with a price on his head, Brody condemns himself to a life of heartbreak without Megan. Wanting her desperately, knowing he can't have her, he heads alone to certain death...

Challenge to my book blogging peeps:

Don't you hate it when your favorite books go unnoticed? I've read two White Rose Publishing titles this year and both will make my list of Top Ten reads of 2010. I really wish they had gotten more attention by our book blogging community. If you review Christian fiction and you haven't read either Masquerade Marriage by Anne Greene or Rodeo Redemption by Teri Wilson, I challenge you to give them a try, you will not be disappointed!

What books do you wish I had read this year?

  2. Ooooo sounds good. It's amazing how some books from little publishing houses never get the support they deserve. Yay to you for reaching out :)
