(Vikings of Honor, Book 2)
STORY-LINE EMERALD GLORY BY RENEE VINCENT:
Emerald Glory, the story of Breandán Mac Liam and Mara, daugther of Callan, the King of Connacht, follows these two thru war-torn land towards love. The reader will remember Mara and Breandán from Sunset Fire by Vincent. Book 2 finds a widowed Mara seven years later raising a son. Mara’s raising her son alone, and watched over by Tait her deceased husbands best friend. Breandán’s given the task of returning Mara to the King.
Breandán loved Mara from the first time he saw her. Knowing he’s beneath her social class, he loves her from afar. Married to a Northman (Viking) and widowed, Mara’s summoned home to her dying king and father. Breandán jumps at the chance to bring Mara home. Come follow with Breandán and Mara in this wonderful love story. My reviews for romance novel, Emerald Glory, follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Emerald Fire continues the epic story of Mara, who finds all’s not lost when Dægan died. Seven years after his death, Breandán comes to escort Mara home to her dying father. Creating a story filled with conflict, long-held secrets, conspiracies, and, of course romance, Jenkins continued her tale of Viking honor. Breandán is the perfect knight in shining amour, kind, compassionate, giving, and honorable. Mara knew he had declared his love 7 years earlier, however, she wondered could that love have survived this long time. As the saying goes, “true love is timeless”.
Again, Vincent has included sexual tension, without the use of crude language or sex. I could feel the attraction and tension between Mara and Breandán, as they came to know each other again. Tait has a starring role as well as; he will learn secrets which will greatly affect how he see Breandán. The reader also sees the human side of Tait as he interacts with his family; not only a honed fierce warrior, also, a loving father and spouse.
In concluding my reviews for romance novel, Emerald Glory, the reader finds secrets and conspiracies revealed, lives changed, and a traitor revealed. With a steady and smooth plot, Vincent created an intriguing story-line with many threads she brought together to a great finale. As the romance heats up, will Mara and Breandán have their happy ever after? You will have to buy the book to find out. Although a standalone, I would suggest reading Sunset Fires as it will give you greater appreciation for the characters in this book. This is a sweet romance suitable for anyone who loves historical romance.
