#BookReview + #Giveaway: Sword of the Matchmaker by Debbie Lynne Costello

25 Jun

Sword of the Matchmaker is an enchanting tale! Filled with action and adventure, Debbie Lynne Costello captures the medieval times and brings the story of Penelope Beatty and Thomas Godfrey to life. I enjoyed Penelope’s strong, determined personality which contrasts with Sir Thomas’s protective nature and heroism. Their story delighted me, as did reuniting with Lord Royce and Lady Brithwin from Book 1, Sword of Forgiveness. I loved this beautifully written romance and am eager to continue the Winds of Change series!

I received a complimentary copy of this novella. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

About the book:

Penelope Beatty made up her mind long ago she would live and die a Scottish warrior not a wife. But when nearly all her clan is killed and she is betrayed, she loathes doing the unthinkable, but must seek the help of an Englishman who owed her father his life.

Thomas Godfrey never married, but when a Scottish warrior lass shows up needing his aid, he finds her both annoying and irresistible. But the last thing he wants is to marry a woman who fights alongside him. If he was going to marry—which he isn’t—it would be to a soft, submissive woman. But when the Lady Brithwin meets the Scottish lass, she’s sure she’s found the perfect match for Thomas and nothing is going to stop her from seeing a summer wedding.
