The Candle Palace - Cover

 

The Candle Palace - CoverSometimes a single flame can ignite a love that lasts a lifetime. 

Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life and leaving an empty hole in its place.
But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.

The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun beating again just for her.

Reviewed by Rachal at KFF

This story focuses on Sara and Milo and is an accompanying story to complement The Jamieson Valley series. I’ve read a few of this author’s works before and have always been intrigued by these books as they are my kind of read. I happen to have 3 of them on my Kindle just waiting to be read, so thought this novella would be a great way to dip my toes into new characters and their stories. The blurb intrigued me from the start when it mentioned Milo was used to suffering, I do love a male protagonist who is a tortured soul. I’m also an absolute sucker for a guy who has to overcome his issues and the battles that often involves and when romance at the heart of the story; I’m sold!

Milo has endured the most horrific of injuries and has a long road ahead of him in terms of getting back to his job as a police officer. I loved him from the start, he’s such a kind and sweet guy. The scenes which played out between Milo and Sarah were adorable and made me smile so much. I got the impression that I should have already known Milo’s back story which after some digging, I understood is in one of the series’ books. At times this did frustrate me as I felt I was missing out. The story is primarily told from Sara’s point of view so this made sense when I found this out. On the plus side, it did make me want to read more of the other books.

“No more crying, okay? I can’t take it.”
“I’ll try.
“Is it just a guy thing?”
“No. I can handle tears. Just not yours.”
 

Sara was a sweetheart! Such a lovely and compassionate girl who did a job she was obviously born to do. She hasn’t had the best of lives but is determined to give herself a good, honest life. She’s a hard worker and doing a job she absolutely adores. She’s not had a great deal of luck with relationships before so when her eyes meet Milo’s she conflicted. She’s also honourable but when she meets Milo, her values are severely tested. In her profession, the kind of relationship she envisions with Milo is not something which can easily be achieved. But when its true love does that really matter? They say true love conquers all but will these obstacles be knocked down or merely pushed aside. Milo certainly has no plans to leave anything to chance but he’s not the pushy type. He knows what’s at stake and won’t jeopardize Sara’s job.

“How’d I get so lucky to find you?”
“We both got lucky.”
 

This story had the sweetest of moments between two very lovable and relatable characters. The writing is excellent which I have come to expect from this author. However, I do think I would’ve enjoyed the book more if I’d read more books in this series, especially The Coppersmith House.

THE FIRST GIRL CHILD by Amy Harmon is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing New York Times bestselling author Amy Harom’s brand new breathtaking fantasy novel of a cursed kingdom, warring clans, and unexpected salvation, THE FIRST GIRL CHILD.


Bayr of Saylok, bastard son of a powerful and jealous chieftain, is haunted by the curse once leveled by his dying mother. Bartered, abandoned, and rarely loved, she plagued the land with her words: From this day forward, there will be no daughters in Saylok.

Raised among the Keepers at Temple Hill, Bayr is gifted with inhuman strength. But he’s also blessed with an all-too-human heart that beats with one purpose: to protect Alba, the first girl child born in nearly two decades and the salvation for a country at risk.

Now the fate of Saylok lies with Alba and Bayr, whose bond grows deeper with every whisper of coming chaos. Charged with battling the enemies of their people, both within and without, Bayr is fueled further by the love of a girl who has defied the scourge of Saylok.

What Bayr and Alba don’t know is that they each threaten the king, a greedy man who built his throne on lies, murder, and betrayal. There is only one way to defend their land from the corruption that has overtaken it. By breaking the curse, they could defeat the king…but they could also destroy themselves.
