Rolf’s Quest (A Medieval Encounter #1) by Aubrey Wynne
Synopsis: A wizard, a curse, a fated love…
When Rolf finally discovers the woman who can end the curse that has plagued his family for centuries, she is already betrothed. Time is running out for the royal wizard of King Henry II. If he cannot find true love without the use of magic, his line will end.
Melissa is intrigued by the mystical, handsome man who haunts her by night and tempts her by day. His bizarre tale of Merlin, enchantments, and finding genuine love has her questioning his sanity and her heart.
From the moment Melissa stepped from his dreams and into his arms, Rolf knew she was his destiny. Now, he will not only battle against time and a powerful duke, but defy his king and the gods to save her.
Review: I received this book as part of the NERFA romance contest. The plot line was good and the characters were strong; however, I found it moved a bit slowly and there was no passion. A few kisses and that was it. The villain was really strong and the conflict believable, but I was bored some of the time. It would have been better if it wasn’t so tame, it reminded me of Alexandra Ivy’s historical/paranormal romance series Immortal Rogues, it teased and hinted about the passion, but didn’t deliver. When I pick up a romance, I want the passion as well as a good plot, characters, and conflict.
