The Only King to Tame Her by Millie Adams started with a bang! What an exciting starting chapter and what a stunning cover.
This story matches the blurb 100% but it’s the style of writing and words that make it different. It has a feeling of darkness almost, with a touch of medievil royalty. The language was also out of the ordinary for a Presents.
The plot was on edge, I was curious to know who the threat was and I enjoyed the path the two broken characters took to find love.
I enjoyed this different style of tale. I couldn’t help but think I was reading a historical so I’m not surprised to see the author writes historical romances, of which I will look into.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes historical romances and to anyone who is looking for something different in the Present’s category.
