Review/Giveaway: Armored Hearts by Melissa Turner Lee and Pauline Creeden

Armored Hearts
By: Melissa Turner Lee & Pauline Creeden

When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales.

Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park and left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair.

Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.

*This is an exciting collaboration between a Steampunk writer and a Paranormal Romance author. Together we are blending the two cultures as seamlessly as possible so that fans of both genre will love what we’ve come up with.*

My Review:

I’ve read a lot of steampunk stories, it’s a favorite genre of mine. This was an interesting start to a series in my opinion. I don’t read many stories with the hero in a wheelchair, of course the author gives him ways to compensate for it. I was a little put off by his attitude of the wheelchair at times, but I could understand it.

Overall I liked Gareth, and watching him and Jessamine fall in love was interesting. The characters are well developed. To an newcomer to Steampunk, the characters might seem a bit over the top but I liked them. I definitely felt like the authors did a lot of research and stayed true to historical facts except for the Steampunk aspects of course.

I would recommend this story for fans of Steampunk romance.

3 Books

I received a copy in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review.

Pauline Creeden is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. In her fiction, she creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long.
