Review Claiming Her

Claiming Her Free download Ü 2 USA TODAY bestselling author spins a tale of scorching passion rollicking adventure and fun banter in this battle of wills between a conuering hero and a strong willed heroine who has no intention of being conuered Irish warrior Aodh is coming home with an armyDefying the ueen of England he leads his men on an outrageous mission to recover the windswept Irish castle he sees as his birthr. 45 starsSo I found a new author thanks to Kyraraker whose backlist I ll go through now because uite honestly Claiming Her was an absolute treat I was not prepared forFrom the first page till the very last Kris Kennedy has spun a story which is utterly delightful on so many levels that had me messy unreliable and impatient reader that I am gripped from the very beginning Now that I ve finished it I wonder why this author isn t popular Monica McCarty who is so well loved could and should learn a thing or two about pacing and writing not to mention characterisation It may be impolite to make comparisons I may have read only this book by Ms Kennedy and granted Claiming Her covers a completely different time Era and conflict but both authors use historical figures and events to tell their stories And let me tell you Ms Kennedy s characters didn t make me want to bang the book against the wall because one of the main characters or both acted stupidly beyond belief which happened with at least half of Ms McCarty s characters of her Highland Guard seriesNo I was with Lady Katarina of Rardove and Aodh Mac Con at all times getting to know them and love them But most importantly I understood their motivations they weren t childishly stubborn and didn t let personal grudges turn to pettiness Both their fathers executed for treason for different reasons however both their mothers dead in the struggle of and for their husbands these two have been living their lives at the mercy of none other than ueen Elizabeth I herself And it is the ueen s unexpected fickle decision that throws Katarina and Aodh togetherHolding the castle of Rardove in the name of the ueen Katarina shows a tenacity that impresses even Elizabeth But when rumours spread that Katarina may be helping traitorous Catholic priests she will have to face the ueen s wrath in the form of Bertrand of Bridge who will interrogate her and if she proves to be innocent wed her In any case Bertrand will be the new Lord of Rardove Now this Aodh cannot allow Having pirated and fought for Elizabeth for the past 16 years in the hope of getting his ancestral home back and having vaguely been promised Rardove Castle if he proves himself worthy he sets out to take the castle against the expressed wishes of the ueen thus committing treason When he arrives at the castle Katarina opens the gates for him mistaking Aodh for Bertrand Let the battle of wills beginAodh knowing the ueen well sets up his own schemes to keep the castle one of them being to marry Katarina Katarina however well aware of how uickly the ueen s favour can turn finds herself between a rock and a hard place If she marries Aodh she will commit treason If she doesn t marry him she will lose her home and may still face charges of treason Ms Kennedy s writing really shines here It s fantastic the way she sets up the scenes between Katarina and Aodh cleverly done compelling and beautifully put into words One scene in particular had me grinning from one ear to another He bent to the floor beside him lifted something and tossed it onto the table It was a lightweight sword belt blades attached Her blades Other weapons followed behind hitting the table with muted thuds the long clumsy dagger the short fierce knife the sleek keen edged misericorde Her wheel lock pistol The newer snaphances Five of them Why he d found everything How unsettling They stared at the deadly cache together in silence a moment Then she cleared her throat Ireland is a dangerous land He gave a low laugh Aye Katarina With you in it These two are actually fantastic The first 30% of the book covers the first day and it had me a little worried I had read another book can t remember which any set up in the same way and it was too much page time for the author to pick up the story and move it forward Not here The major themes throughout the book are loyalty and betrayal and the choices one has to make Now Ms Kennedy could have gone the easy route and made loyalty and betrayal a clear black and white statement But we re in the Elizabethan Era the ever shifting alliances a dangerous ground to move on and it s Katarina who has the hardest time of it Whilst Aodh knows exactly where his loyalties lie in general as well as in his personal life Katarina is the one who comes to understand that loyalty may just as well mean betrayal while betrayal may just as well mean loyalty One only has to choose if it were up to Aodh He tries to push her he does push her but Katarina is no pushover She has a mind of her own a pretty one at that and this is where I seriously cheered for this woman as hot as Aodh may be she doesn t let him manipulate her into something she s unsure of You go girlThere s attraction right from the start But let me assure you whatever fierce attractionlust Katarina may feel for Aodh she doesn t lose her senses because of it She acknowledges it but knows it will have dire conseuences should she give in to it She is feisty and intelligent well aware of how much is at stake not only for herself but for those within the castle who are loyal to her Her bitter past not making her bitter but in her own words she d hammered herself anew She was akin to steel now Tempered capable of great harm And I loved her for it Aodh on the other hand eually traumatised by the past is a hard driven and single minded man who nonetheless inspires loyalty even in time from those who have been conuered He can be heavy handed uite literally but hey given the times he lives in I would have been taken aback if he had been a softer man This makes him almost sound like a jerk He isn t Not at all He uickly realises that he has found his match in Katarina although admitting it is another matter He s a wonderful hero who doesn t belittle Katarina doesn t disrespect her but he has to come to terms with the fact that Katarina needs to be convinced not controlled or pushed It s a lovely character development If Katarina has to learn the murky lines between loyalty and betrayal then Aodh has to learn the fine differences of a partnership That s another point I loved about this book without her support he won t be able to win the support of the other tribes His fate is just as much in her hands as hers is in hisKatarina and Aodh share a sensuality and chemistry that felt natural and the moment they finally come together is about their growing emotions for each other rather than the obligatory sex scenes that needs to be there Let me uote Kyraraker here who described it beautifully in one of her status updates The book has the deep emotional aspect of wonderful historical romance books but a lot of it comes out during sensual scenes which like I said there is a lot They don t have a heavy erotic feel they re emotional and less fixated on the act but they re also pretty descriptive Did you ever watch the movie 300 The sex scene between Gerald Butler and Lena Headly is the best comparison I can make deeply emotional but also spine tingling erotic The sex is truly a natural development of their relationship mirroring their growing emotions bonding them beyond the physical act It s not love for lust s sake that we sadly see so often in romances but love slowly building its way through the time spent together the growing respect the understanding for each other A spoiler warning for the sensitive readers view spoilerThere s a spanking scene which is meant as a punishment that well how to put this I wasn t uncomfortable with but yeah had me scratch my head a little Nah to be honest my little pervy side peaked out here I was okay with it But by the time it happened I already believed in Katarina and Aodh s feelings for each other That definitely helped hide spoiler

It has been so god damned long since I got to read an amaze balls medieval historical romance I simply did not want Claiming Her to end New readers do ignore the bodice ripper esue title for Kris Kennedy writes stuff miles and miles superior Katarina holds Rardove Castle in the remote wilds of Ireland in honour of ueen Elizabeth of England who executed her parents for treason but spared Katarina Undereuipped and understaffed Katarina nevertheless manages to eke out a living Rardove s isolation keeping its enemies none too wiser But that is all about to change The mercurial ueen hears rumours of Katarina planning treason and promptly dispatches her interrogator Betrand of Bridge to Rardove to bring her to justice or if innocent to marry Katarina Which leads it to be an opportunity of a lifetime for Aodh Mac Con A son of Rardove by blood Aodh s family were also slaughtered by the ueen Now after 16 years as her trusted counselor and champion Aodh grows tired of her inconstant reassurances to his birthright When he arrives at Rardove Katarina allows him inside mistaking him for Betrand Having staged a bloodless coup Aodh installs himself as the new Master of Rardove a title Katarina has no intention of reliuishing without a fight At the outset Claiming Her is a story of two people at cross purposes forced to live together Kris Kennedy could have taken the easy way out and made this into a staunch loyalist vs roguish rebel plot Mind you this is an era where politics was a minefield of opportunistic power players and a seemingly fickle ueen made life or death decisions for her subjects While Aodh may have his priorities sorted out Katarina is mortally afraid of being judged as a traitor by the ueen and subjected to her father s fate I appreciated that we gota layered narrative on what drives Aodh and Katarina to the choices they wish to stand by Another aspect I just have to suee over is the sense of atmosphere that the author delivers I was transported to Rardove in all its glory with its sudden chilling gusts of drafty wind and the way it made the embers in the fireplace pop and crackle Or the way information and knowledge were treated like pure precious pearls Aodh spreading across by the candle light an intricate hand painted map of the world and Katarina s sense of wonder and unadulterated joy at seeing the world at her fingertipsXXX Her blades Other weapons followed behind hitting the table with muted thuds the long clumsy dagger the short fierce knife the sleek keen edged misericorde Her wheel lock pistol The newer snaphances Five of them Why he d found everything How unsettling They stared at the deadly cache together in silence a moment Then she cleared her throat Ireland is a dangerous land He gave a low laugh Aye Katarina With you in it XXXWhich gets us to the spine tingling chemistry that Aodh and Katarina discover Undoubtedly the intense attraction between the leads is the driving force behind the story however I wouldn t term it as insta lust It was of a meeting of two people who were meant to be and the conflict is played out beautifully XXX You said you were mine Katy When I was in you as deep as a man can be you looked in my eyes and said you were mineShe peered at him You are not the sole possessor of me AodhHe forced himself to breathe slowly What does that meanI too possess me She was the most infuriating woman aliveAnd so you do But you said you were mine I thought that meantShe straightened a little I am not responsible for your thoughts I am indeed yours inin that way That does not mean I am not also my own And I am not marrying you XXXI totally love that while the lust is an important part of their relationship the leads can acknowledge it and it doesn t come in the way of their sticking up for oneself and having differing opinions Having been the chateleine of Rardove her entire life Katarina is used to having a unilateral command of her domain The author has made her incredibly period appropriate she does not strap on a broadsword and run into battle however her very important trade alliances with the neighbours and grasp of the terrain makes her invaluable and important in her own right More so for Aodh who again is a very period appropriate hero He finds Katarina s skills and knowledge attractive and even invites her into his trusted council meetings At the same time he wants to remain the sole unchallenged master of Rardove and hates it when Katarina disagrees with him in public XXX What I am telling you Katy is your path is laid and it is my path Our path And battle is coming whether you wish it or no So knowing that you stand fast And Jesus God his voice broke you do not let them lure you His hands gripped her elbows so hard his knuckles were almost white His face was taut his voice rasping the eyes staring into hers so filled with emotion it almost broke her heart He was afraid for her XXXview spoiler What is with the fact that everyone around is simply accepting of the fact that the new Lord and Lady of Rardove are allied but not married for nearly the entire book hide spoiler
