Review: Stolen Promise by Kimberly Nee

~ Genre ~ Romance, Historical, Romance, Fantasy

~ Blurb ~ 
Kristian could see the future, but she never dreamed of what hers held...

Stefan Vanechka has no choice but to accept the bride who has already been chosen for him, although he’s never met her. As the Crown Prince of Mordainia, he has his everyday duties to contend with, but must also secure his legacy by siring an heir as well. Not only will his bride be faced with that task, but the woman chosen to be his queen has the gift of second sight. He will do what he must in order to protect his people and his throne, even if it means taking a wife he doesn’t want.

Kristian Petroviya never knew she carried royal blood in her veins, or that she was betrothed at birth to the future King of Mordainia. Spirited far into the wilds of Mordainia as a child, she grew up knowing nothing of her heritage, or what was expected of her in regards to her gift. Rather, she was raised as being only one step above a peasant, reared by an aunt who used that gift for her own advantage, until Kristian was able to free herself and begin her life anew. Marriage to anyone, least of all a future king, was the furthest thing on her mind and the last thing she wished to do.

Left with no choice but to accompany Stefan and his men back to Mordainia’s capital, Kristian is forced to accept a truth she’d never dreamed possible. As they journey on, neither can deny the growing attraction between them. But when Kristian discovers the truth as to why he has come for her, and what her gift means for the future of his reign, it threatens to destroy not only lifelong friendships and growing trust, but Mordainia’s existence as well.

~ My Review ~
What an enchanting tale! I was enthralled with the weaving of the story as I got to know Stefan the Crown Prince of Mordainia and feisty Kristian his unwilling chosen bride.

Finally a girl who likes her life and who doesn’t want to marry a prince. Kristian is independent and happy with her neatly organized, hard earned life. Her character is one that all women can relate to and cheer for.

Gorgeous, sexy Stefan is a rather interesting character throughout the book. I truly didn’t like his aura of entitlement in the first part of the book but the author did a commendable job of showing his personal growth through interaction with Kristain and letting his guard down.

Every story needs a villain and some drama and this one was not short on it. I don’t want to spoil the plot so all I can say is this is entertaining with some intrigue, trust issues and falling in love.

~ About The Author ~
Kim fell in love with historical romance when she was sixteen, and blames Kathleen Woodiwiss for that, since it was her The Flame and the Flower that got her hooked. Not long after finishing it, she sat down to write one herself and now, many years later, here she is. 

Kim lives in New Jersey with her husband and their two children. When she's not pounding away at the computer keyboard, she does crossword and Sudoku puzzles, knits, breaks up the occasional wrestling match between the kids, and whenever she can find a few free minutes, she reads. She's also an avid fan of the New York Yankees, New York Giants, and the New York Rangers. She also loves Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Elton John, and the Rolling Stones.
