I'm not quite done with the book but am unimpressed so far. I am tired of hearing how handsome the hero appears to the heroine. I am tired of him being a jerk to her(of course he is much nicer than her father) and her just giving in. Now I find myself skimming the sex scenes because there is not enough plot!
Done with In the Warrior's Bed and had hoped for a big finish to redeem the book but it was just okay. ( )

In the Warrior's Bed
3 Stars

Falsely accused of dishonoring Bronwyn McQuade, Cullen McJames decides to settle the longstanding feud between his clan and the McQuades by kidnapping and wedding her. Unfortunately for Cullen, Bronwyn is no timid miss and refuses to marry and be used as a pawn. Can these two passionate yet stubborn people find some common ground?

Not as enjoyable as the first book in the series.

Bronwyn and Cullen’s scenes together are exceedingly erotic. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, their romance lacks foundation and is based on mutual lust rather than any real love and affection.

Bronwyn’s relationship with her family is underdeveloped and her interactions with the McJames clan are unrealistic. Where is the animosity and the antagonism?

There are intriguing hints at an underlying suspense plot spread throughout, but it never fully materializes and is ultimately resolved rapidly and unsatisfactorily.

All in all, the book does not live up to its potential and the next one will hopefully be better. ( )
