Fire and Earth

Meredith Mansfield
Fantasy Romance

"Stealing her mount would be a pretty poor way to repay the ... very scary woman who had just saved his life."

Casora is a warrior.  Raised to lead the Deathless, an elite fighting group...who can now never return home.  The curse of her kind is upon them and they are forced to live as mercenaries to the highest bidder.  It just so happens the the highest bidder pulls them into a war and involving them with a prince Casora cannot easily ignore.  Tiaran doesn't want to marry for political reasons, especially to a girl he hates.  He'd rather fight - a glory denied to him by his father.  But when he sneaks off to avoid his fate, he'll collide with Casora, and a future neither of them expected even existed.  Can they work together to save his people and hers?  Or are their worlds too far apart - as different as fire and earth?

My Opinion: This was a great romance and a great story.  The characters pulled you  into its intricate and lightly complicated world.  Both main characters were strong in their own ways and developed slowly and satisfactorily.  Good side characters supported them and the story.  The war in itself was surprisingly exciting and involved you emotionally without getting either gory or boring.  In fact, the war distracted you as the reader as much as it did the characters, making you feel as they did every step of the way.  Very enthralling story.  I would definitely recommend this one.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
