Thank you for stopping by I'm delighted to be taking part in the blog blitz for Bound to Her Blood Enemy by Tora Williams and sharing my review today!
First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Norman heiress, Matilda Comyn is desperate to escape her grasping guardian and reclaim her inheritance. After a lifetime of being let down by men, she wants to rule her lands on her own terms. She can’t escape without help and battles her mistrust when compelled to join forces with a Welsh spy.
Huw Ap Goronwy has a rival claim to Matilda’s castle and has sworn a blood oath against the Comyns. When his king rules they must marry, he struggles to reconcile his attraction with his need for revenge. But they must form a truce if they are to seize their castle.
Risking capture and death, they will only succeed if Matilda learns to trust, and Huw allows his love for Matilda to overcome his need for revenge.

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I love historical fiction especially historical romance it really is a perfect escape that transports me to another time. In Bound to Her Blood Enemy we meet Huw and Matilda who join forces to try and reclaim land that was taken. I loved how they both had the same goal but with the addition of a very troubled past between their families that really makes things difficult. I enjoyed the interactions between the pair as they get to know each other but with a sense of mistrust lingering it made for an entertaining plot.
This was a very enjoyable medieval story with plenty of danger to keep things interesting. Along with a romance that will have you hoping for that happy ever after. The story is pretty fast moving and kept my attention throughout with a good balance of history and story.
With strong characters, romance and a dangerous plan Bound to Her Blood Enemy was a delight to read!
Four stars from me!

Tora lives in Shropshire in the United Kingdom. On childhood holidays her interest in history was fired by exploring castles in Wales and the Welsh borders, and she would make up stories about characters living there. When she started writing, it seemed only natural to turn to the settings that inspired her as a child. In her free time, when she can drag herself away from reading, she enjoys walking and cycling.
