Fabulous Historical Romance!
Abandoned & Protected: The Marquis' Tena... Abandoned & Protected: The Marquis' Tenacious Wife (Love's Second Chance Series Book 4) - Bree Wolf

Abandoned & Protected: The Marquis' Tenacious Wife is a phenomenal historical romance by Bree Wolf.  Ms. Wolf has once again impressed me with her story-telling abilities.  Abandoned & Protected is a well-written book furnished with a stellar cast of characters.  Five-year-old Henrietta is in the home when her abusive father murders her mother and then himself.  Connor is the future Marquis of Rodridge and the new chief of clan Brunwood and meets Henrietta on his way to London to claim his father's titles.  Connor and Henrietta's story is packed with everything a historical romance should have, drama, action, humor, steamy sex and suspense.  I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next book by Bree Wolf.  Abandoned & Protected is book 4 of the Love's Second Chance Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Structure felt cobbled
The Highlander Who Protected Me - Vanessa Kelly

You know I don't flirt,” he said. Then he titled his head, as if considering. The late afternoon sunlight caught the red in his burnished mahogany hair, making it glow like fire. “Except with you.”

 

This is the first in the series but there felt like a lot of background I was missing. What I felt from our hero Royal was insta feelings and “ok, sure” from the heroine Ainsley. They seem to have met in a previous book where Royal abducted her, which she liked, didn't like? I really felt like I missed them bonding or getting to know one another.

 

The story structure of this felt off and cobbled together. The first half is Royal sad because he thinks there is no future for him and Ainsley, the middle is Ainsley lying while Royal is a mary-sue, and the last half is Ainsley lying, arguing with Angus (Royal's grandfather), and Royal wanting to sleep with Ainsley while being in pain with his leg injury.

 

This just didn't flow for me, it was a little over four hundred pages and whole sections dragged for me as we went round and round with Ainsley keeping some big secret from Royal, leg pain, and arguing. For Royal having such a large supportive family, I forgot some brothers even existed as their names were mentioned only a handful of times, I do know the twins were little devils to raise though, as it was mentioned over and over. I liked Ainsley's Aunt Margaret but after appearing in the middle part, she is never heard from again. Angus and Ainsley's relationship could have been a nice secondary addition if the fighting didn't last so long and feel so acrimonious and skim over their eventual starting to like one another finally.

 

Since it seemed some of these two's story started in another book, I missed their bonding; there didn't feel like any romance in this story. The pacing was slow and the structure had this feeling like three sections not melded together and characters spinning their wheels for four hundred pages.

Holy smoke, that prologue was on fire.

Hero unabashedly jonesing for heroine, heroine trying to keep the jonesing for hero covert. 

Banter, flirting, and Misunderstanding.

The Highlander Who Protected Me (Clan Kendrick #1) by Vanessa Kelly

There are no victims only survivors. Kelly dreams up a stunningly, captivating tale of heartache, bravery and romance. Royal and Ainsley are a little bit broken but no less heroes. Both are looking to find their place in a world judgment, cruelty and war. They find that place in each other's hearts. The Highlander Who Protected Me is a slow burn. Love kind of sneaks it's way into your heart. The battle is hard won, but the fire is never-ending.
