Blurb: Heather expected things to be a little crazy at her first medieval reenactment. She didn’t expect to need rescuing—or to find a real hero.
PRETEND PRINCESS. REAL HERO.
After nearly getting lost on her way to her first medieval reenactment, Heather’s evening only gets crazier from there. Sparks fly between her and the handsome and chivalrous Roland, who’s not just a pretend knight in shining armor but an undercover army ranger on a dangerous mission. When he rescues Heather from a real—if fuzzy—monster attack, the pair is forced to spend the night in his safe house. And while Heather may no longer be in danger, her heart most definitely is.
This was a very sweet and interesting read. I just wish it were a bit longer and maybe didn't have the paranormal element.
It started off really funny and intriguing. Heathers gets lost due to her friends lack of directions. Her idea of telling Heather how to get to the place where the reenactment was taking place was turn at this oak tree. You'll know the one.
She gets to the place. Has some fun meets this sweet and chivalrous Prince Charming type, then ends up almost getting kidnapped by these creatures.
That's when the story lost some interest. The idea for the creatures was interesting but it was too rushed and needed a bit more work. The storyline could have worked better with them if the author developed it a bit more.
I really liked Heather and Roland. The romance between them was sweet. The feelings a bit rushed and I wish the book were longer so they could draw it out some more between them and feel more real.
The story has a lot of potential and the creatures were definitely new for me. So overall not a bad read just needs a little something more.
