    A Must Read

    If I had to rate When A Warrior Woos A Lass by Julie Johnstone from 1 to 5, I would give it a 10! The book was so good I couldn’t put it down. Julie’s characters just come alive and her descriptions are so visual I can just see it in my mind. This book has treason, deception, battle, dark secrets, nightmares, abuse, trust issues and of coarse love… in other words, it has it all. Everything that I love in a book. As you can tell, I highly recommend When A Warrior Woos A Lass!!! So travel back in time to 1360 Scotland with Lena and Alex on a journey like no other.

    Emotionally charged romance

    I was gifted a copy of this book. Lena MacLeod has returned to her clan’s home of Dunvegan Castle after suffering through a brutally abusive marriage. She has attempted to be invisible for two years – holding herself aloof from the rest of the MacLeod clan. But everything changes the night of her younger brother’s wedding, when Alex Mac Lean asks her to dance. “A shiver of panic swept through Lena, and she stumbled into Alex’s unyielding body. When she looked up to apologize and put distance between him, the words caught in her throat, her hand frozen on his chest. His heart was racing beneath her palm, as if he was just as bothered by the prospect of a dance with her as she was with him.…. Lena stood there gaping at Alex. As he stared back, it seemed as though a cloak had lifted from his eyes, and the tenderness in their depths sucked the air from her lungs. ‘I ken ye dunnae wish to dance,’ he said in a voice as deep as an endless loch.” I enjoyed “When a Warrior Woos Lass”, its strong characters and the romantic tension between Alex and Lena were captivating. Alex has his own secret demons that he is battling and it is his shame of these demons that threaten to destroy his relationship with Lena. Although this book is a stand-alone story, I believe I would have appreciated the depth of the characters had I read the rest of the series’ first. I was disappointed in Lena’s quick surrender to Alex. I felt if someone had suffered that severely in a prior relationship, she would have taken much more time to consummate her second marriage. There was some sexual content, but it wasn’t too graphic. However, I did enjoy Lena’s transformation from fearful to brave. If you enjoy medieval romance, Johnstone has written a very well-crafted story with wonderful messages of redemption and restoration.

    When a Warrior Woos a Lass

    Can abuse break someone to the point that they can never love again? Would the perfect match between two broken hearts be able to mend each other? Johnstone’s historical romance really exposes the raw emotion of love for what it is—vulnerability that can be harnessed into strength. This tale is of another Scottish warrior who has provided his unyielding loyalty to his King. Two tests have been thrown at him in rapid succession. A marriage that he very much wants to a women who has endured far more abuse then he could ever hope to banish from her heart and a King who has asked him to betray his people. When a Warrior Woos a Lass holds depth, historical adventure, emotional prevalence and timeless romance. Johnstone provides yet another riveting and fascinating story that will captivate readers who enjoy this genre. Alex and Lena care for each other a great deal, being brought together time and time again since youth, but Lena’s last marriage to a cruel and abusive man has changed the way that she sees all men, including Alex. Once her brother saves her from that horror, can she learn to love another man and be with him as a woman should without fear of his touch threatening to overcome her? Alex is kind, compassionate, and stunningly handsome and yet, his eyes and his past hold a cold darkness full of secrets. When the King has demanded their marriage before an important task arises, a secret in which Alex and the King must hold sacred to themselves, Lena doesn’t know how to move forward. Should she follow her husband and betray her whole family or should she stay and leave her husband to his own betrayal? Lena knows in her heart that Alex is good, and she bases her determination to stay be his side out of faith that there is an explanation for his actions. Could she be wrong? Could he betray her? Johnstone almost has a poetic vibe to her words and the rhythm with which she carries the story. It is clear that she has a profound knowledge of history and a lot of research went into her story. This author does a superb job with character development and originality. The pace is very fluid and quick, but not so quick as to hinder understanding or perception. As this story progresses, it becomes more of an adventure for both Alex and Lena, one which will test strength as well as trust. If you are a reader of historical romance, this may be an exciting read for you. A copy of this book was provided to Turning Another Page by the author, but this in no way affects our honest opinion of the book or the review that has been written. We provide a five-star rating for When a Warrior Woos a Lass by Julie Johnstone.

    A must read!

    I loved Lena & Alex’s story! Among secret pasts, intrigue, and deception two tortured souls battled their own demons to find happiness. Lena and Alex can’t help their mutual attraction and through patience and trust venture into a journey of love and forgiveness. Once I started reading I was so immersed in their love story that I could not put it down! A great read just in time for the holidays! Enjoy!
