I want more and need more. The love, sex, passion and the characters are over the moon amazing. This is my first time reading this authors work and I have to say she does remarkable work. I truly felt like I was in Evermore and part of the Elders castle in every way that I could. I was so mad when I finished reading this story with tears down my face I wanted more hell I need more. Honestly the characters deserve an award the best paranormal story I have read in a long time. I really can't wait to read more from this author with the way she had all the details to what everything looked like and felt like was magic. MUST READ!!!
My Goodreads Review
What people are saying about Winter's Bride...."This is the lyrical, romantic and erotic story of two very interesting people, from two very different worlds. Can they bridge the gap between his reality and hers? Can love be the force that binds two people and changes two worlds forever? Can this awesome force change centuries-old traditions and culture? This is a wonderfully magical evocation of how two lives can come together and change destiny itself and it will keep you turning the pages to see what becomes of Dawn and her love for Audren and what it is that he feels for her ... the very forces of nature combine to weave this story of profound love in a tapestry of magic, intrigue, and passion." - Jennifer K. Brock
The world outside his window looked peaceful. Bellow the hill, in the distance from the castle, was the town Evermore. It flourished with life, beauty and good health. The people who lived there were happy and pleased. His kind always made sure of that. In return, the people obeyed their laws and received their protection from harm and poverty. No one from another town or another city was allowed to enter without permission. Traveling merchants could put up their goods outside the town on the marketplace. Only those who lived in Evermore were allowed to put up their goods for sale inside the high town walls. The marketplace was always a busy place during the day, and people enjoyed going there. His guards were always there, keeping an eye on everyone and everything, but it was rare that something happened.
From where he stood, on the balcony of his room, he saw people move around in the town. They headed in different directions, minding their own business, and he knew that he would soon change the life of one of them. A woman, who was still unaware of it, would soon become his. He didn't know which woman, but thankfully, he could choose this time.
He turned around and took a deep breath before he entered his room. He didn't want to think about it. He didn't want to do it, but there was no other way. Not for his kind.
His room was big but plain. Unlike the Lady of Spring, he preferred simple things. He didn't need every wall decorated up to the ceiling. He had a working area, a king size bed, a wardrobe and a few plants here and there to bring color to the bright room. That was enough. More wasn't necessary.
He stood in the middle of his room with his gaze fixed on the floor. He waited. He barely dared to think.
There was a knock on the door. He raised his head and prepared himself.
“Enter,” he said and the door opened.
A middle-aged man with a short, white beard, and white hair entered. He was dressed in a light brown robe with silver sleeves. A belt was tied around his waist, and several leather pouches were tied to it. He was the medic and one of the few humans who had been given an unnaturally long life. His job was to make sure that the Elders well-being was taken care of. In return, he received everything he pointed at.
“My Lord,” the man said and bowed.
The Winter Lord nodded and looked the man in the eyes. “How is she, Algar?”
Algar's short silence didn't promise good answers.
“The Summer Lady is dying, My Lord.”
When the Winter Lord heard those words, he closed his eyes. He knew what Algar's words meant. He remained still, and allowed it to sink in.
“How long does she have?” he asked while turning toward the balcony. His blue gaze fixed on the town in the distance.
“A few years, My Lord.”
An ounce of fear crossed his heart, but he didn't allow it to set. “That doesn't give us much time. Why wasn't this discovered sooner?” His voice was calm and gentle as usual, but his words were serious.
“The Summer Lady didn't want to worry you, My Lord.”
He sighed. “Of course not.”
The Winter Lord entered the balcony again. The chill was in the air. Autumn would soon turn into winter. That meant it was his turn to rule soon.
“What are you going to do, My Lord?”
The Winter Lord didn't look away from the town when he answered Algar's question. “The only thing I can do. I'm going to find a bride.”
