ELEANOR AND THE IRON KING by @juliedaines — #books #reviews #amreading

ELEANOR AND THE IRON KING by Julie Daines. This was a quick, fun read. I loved the characters and the plot. The twists kept the pages turning, and when I thought I'd figured out the ending I couldn't turn them fast enough to see if I was correct. I did feel like Eleanor was to naive at times, which did bother me. But in the end I really enjoyed this story. I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance with a bit of a mystery, however, since murder is involved it may not be a good fit for younger readers.

Eleanor de Lacy has been bartered: her hand in marriage in exchange for a truce with her father’s sworn enemy. Now the headstrong beauty must leave her ancestral home and the man she secretly loves to become the wife of the infamous Welsh King Brach Goch. Tales of this cruel leader paint a chilling picture of a ruthless warrior—all Eleanor knows for certain is that he is the villain responsible for the vicious attacks on her people and the death of her beloved brother. Though she must marry against her will, she vows Brach Goch will never possess her heart.
Her arrival at the inhospitable castle Bryn Du confirms her worst fears—a ghost walks the halls of the castle, and Eleanor receives an ominous warning from the uneasy spirit: Brach is not to be trusted. Though resigned to a life of misery, Eleanor soon realizes all is not as it seems, for Brach is not the monster she dreaded but is a handsome and charming man whose gentle ways soon undermine his bride’s resolve to lock her heart. Clinging desperately to her pride, Eleanor finds herself trapped in a web of murder and deceit. And as the lines between good and evil become blurred, Eleanor must decide for herself who is to be trusted—and loved.
