would be interested in reviewing her novels Enchanted Warrior and Enchanted Guardian Of course, I accepted and was so excited that an author reached out to me to review, not one but two of their novels So I received these two books for free in exchange for my completely honest review My review of Enchanted Warrior will be coming soon, so be on the lookout for that as well.Now, overall, I was extremely impressed with the book It was really actiony at times, which doesn t make it a bad thing just different from what I normally read This book definitely took me out of my comfort zone, which I really loved The word choices in this book are also very well chosen Even if action and books with a tie to Medieval times doesn t seem interesting to you, I will still urge you to give this book a try It s waythan it seems and has a little bit of something for everyone I really enjoyed this book and I m definitely looking forward to reading the second book in the series ProsI just have to start with saying THAT PROLOGUE THOUGH OMG, was that thing amazing It definitely drew me in and it made my expectations for the book skyrocket I really enjoyed the underlying premise of the book The idea of forbidden love with a lot of family drama thrown in is part of what kept me interested in the book during the slow parts Tamsin and Gawain s mistrust of each other is a major concept in this book This mistrust stems from nothing other than Gawain s background because he can only see Tamsin for what she is instead of who she is This is a huge frustration for me and its extremely sad, but I think it was necessary for the storyline.I loved that Ashwood didn t just stop at including witches in the book, but also included many other supernatural creatures as well demons, gargoyles, fae, dragons, etc It really made the story interesting for me I also really, really loved the tie to Camelot and King Arthur because it made this book unlike anything I ve ever read before.I really enjoy books that are told from multiple points of view and this one was set up that way switching between Tamsin and Gawain.One of the most admirable qualities that Gawain possesses is his undying loyalty to something or someone he has pledged himself to Over the course of the book, you can slowly see Gawain s loyalty shifting from one person to another even though he tries to fight it It was amazing to see Gawain s love force him to face the realities of who he really is I know this seems silly and a little insignificant, but I really liked the names of the main characters Tamsin and Gawain.Best part of the book was watching reading Tamsin and Gawain s relationship grow and blossom into something that is beautiful and envy provoking It was such a relief to see Gawain finally open himself up completely to Tamsin.ConsThe beginning of the book seemed like it was making no progress at all and the same things just kept happening over and over again Like I mentioned in the Pros section of this review, the book is told in 2 points of view The reason I m bringing it up here is because I prefer when the chapters are told in different POVs and this one wasn t like that Instead, when the POV switched it would just start a new paragraph So my mind would have to switch gears and realize who was talking.Sometimes, things can get a little carried away in books As I mentioned in the Pros section of this review, I really loved that supernatural creatures were included in the storyline However, I think it was taken a little too far when zombies made their appearance Luckily, they didn t stick around very long because it was a major turn off I just want to make it clear that my dislike of the zombies being included is not because I despise anything to do with zombies I love The Walking Dead I just felt like it wasn t necessary.Gawain s inner struggle and stubbornness when it comes to Tamsin was extremely frustrating I found myself telling him out loud how stupid he was and to just get over it LOL To top that off, he struggles to trust Tamsin who proves herself time and time again and then trusts his worst enemy for a split second that proves to be a bad decision I mean, come one You can t be that stupid GRR.The ending was slightly confusing to the point I couldn t really understand exactly what was happening until it was all over That s the only time I feel the articulation in the book was a bad thing In this stretch of the book I m talking it, in my opinion, it became a little too wordy for the amount of action that was happening So it made it hard to follow.Most disappointing part of the book was the fact that King Arthur was NOTHING like I was expecting My mind set about how great King Arthur was and the way he was talked in the book had me expecting this great king Once we meet him in the book, he seems like nothing they have described.Yet how could he love someone who would be his downfall Gawain I don t usually read King Arthur type books but this sounded good so I started it about 11 00 last evening and read until 2 00 then got up today and started it again I enjoyed this so much I hated to have it end Mostly I think it was because of Napoleon Ryan s reading He is totally awesome When a woman talks it sounds exactly like a woman And he reads with such emotion He has become my 1 favorite narrator There s other books in this series but they aren t on audible so I think I ll pass I don t usually read King Arthur type books but this sounded good so I started it about 11 00 last evening and read until 2 00 then got up today and started it again I enjoyed this so much I hated to have it end Mostly I think it was because of Napoleon Ryan s reading He is totally awesome When a woman talks it sounds exactly like a woman And he reads with such emotion He has become my 1 favorite narrator There s other books in this series but they aren t on audible so I think I ll pass on them Without Napoleon Ryan I don t think I d enjoy them as much.This was about Merlin putting King Arthur and the knights of the round table in a deep sleep Unfortunately, something went wrong and the slept for centuries The first one to wake up in this century was Sir Gawain and he met Tamsin, who was an historian, to help him find King Arthur s tomb because Arthur s evil sister Morgan LaFaye and her just as evil son Mordred were about to try to take over the mortal realm Gawain had a hard time with Tamsin at first because Tamsin was a powerful witch and Gawain s mother was a powerful witch who saw nothing wrong with killing someone just for the sake of killing, and his mother was the sister to Morgan LaFaye, so he thought all witches were evil but he really needed Tamsin to find Arthur and the knights I was surprised by this book I had never read a Harlequin Nocturne before and I thought it would be a clean story I couldn t have beenwrong There were 2 or 3 explicit sex scenes However, there was no swearing I guess authors think there s nothing wrong with describing everything sexual going on BUT don t swear Crazy As to the narration Napoleon Ryan is awesome Whatcan I say An ancient evil rises An ancient warrior awakensIn an age clouded by legend, Gawain was one of King Arthur s greatest knights When he awakens centuries after the fall of Camelot, he faces his most daunting quest yet the search for his missing companions His hope is that Tamsin Greene, the alluring historian at Medievaland Theme Park, can help him Then he senses the magic within her Gawain will now have to trust a witch and his own heart to rouse the knights of the Round Table and save humanity from a faery onslaught This was a fun and enchanting spin on Camelot and King Arthurs court A sexy adventure with fae, demons and witches oh my A good lesson in giving someone a chance despite old fears and prejudices Hope to seefrom this world as there is muchto explore. I have to admit, I m not usually a Mills and Boon reader In fact, I read this book for academic reasons yes, really I was told to read any M B and this is the one I picked after nearly two hours of scrolling I didn t expect much from the plot or world building, considering the central theme in the book is the romance, but I was wrong I was so wrong This is going to sound prejudiced and limited but for the sake of reputation this book isn t just good as a romance, it s a good book I have to admit, I m not usually a Mills and Boon reader In fact, I read this book for academic reasons yes,

worlds of medieval romance and the fantastical within the modern day and the plot was fast paced and action based, with interesting characters and settings and a fantastic main character As a non romance reader, the romance still wasn t really my cup of tea, but if you do enjoy romance then you ll love it and even if you don t there is still a lot of value in this book I really enjoyed this book I will admit that I don t know too much about Camelot I know the basic main characters.But of this story took me out of the story and characters I know I loved the way Sharon took the characters and pulled them from the past and put them in the present I loved the way the magic mixed with the story line and also the mystery of where the king and knights of the round table are hidden It is a hunt through out the book with twists and turns You never know what their I really enjoyed this book I will admit that I don t know too much about Camelot I know the basic main characters.But of this

uncover or what is going to await them I know that something big was coming, but what it was, I didn t know until the the final fight in the book This book also has secrets hidden though out it It is also about trust Can a knight trust a witch after Merlin did so much wrong with his powers Can a witch trust a knight that distrusts witches so much Also can the he over come the troubles of his family past with magic to learn to love the witch whom seems to have taken his heart I actually finished this last night but forgot to rate it It was actually a 3.5 rating The story was interesting

Greene s help Tamsin is searching for the spell books of Merlin She is a witch and healer but Gawain doesn t trust magic users Tamsin discovers that not only is she looking for the grimours but she is also looking for her father, Sir Hector.Together Gawain and Tamsin find King Arthur s tomb and awaken him Sure, it s not great literature, but for a romance novel attempting the fantasy spin, it was pretty darn good Heck, any romance novel that doesn t use the terms member , shaft , or lady flower to describe body parts is a win for me Once upon a time, Arthur and his Knights, the witches, fae fought a war against demons One of Merlin s spells had an unfortunate cost It took the fae s souls and left them emotionless husks and power from the witches, reducing their power Of course this lead to them becoming enemies.Interesting take on the popular Arthur and Knight of the Round Table Arthur and his knights were frozen turned to stone and are awakened in the modern age to fight again The difference is there are no longer in Once upon a time, Arthur and his Knights, the witches, fae fought a war against demons One of Merlin s spells had an unfortunate cost It took the fae s souls and

and his knights were frozen turned to stone and are awakened in the modern age to fight again The difference is there are no longer in England They are in the US Washington to beprecise Gawain at first was not a likable character for me I thought he was rude, demanding I was also annoyed at the explanation for his adjusting to the modern age magic I like him by the end, but it took me the whole book to get there I did like Tamsin she was able to defend herself and showed her strength, kindness Gawain whole thought process where witches bad got old I also thought it interesting that modern day covens had strict rules ie need permission to travel, they arranged marriages Men have roles and women have theirs Tamsin would be the first Loremaster This was never dived into and was nothingthan a few paragraphs A blend of Arthurian legend and witchery, this modern day improvisation lends itself well to the world of the Knights of the Round table Tamsin is the perfect heroine and Gawain a swoonworthy hero I enjoyed the updated twist to this legend and the idea that knights could be frozen in time until they were needed to be of service Combustible scenes between the two MC s rocked it This was the first book I ve read by Sharon Ashwood, but it won t be my last.
