My Review
.

Having enjoyed other books in different genres by Ella, I was curious about her romance, Not Juliet

Holy smokes. Get a bucket of ice water.

The story begins with the newly wedded couple, Riella and Luca

Riella has found her Romeo. Luca is the  man of her dreams. She’s hypnotized by his eyes, melts from his kisses.

Luca is the man of any woman’s dreams. He’s lusting for his new bride, but he knows she’s inexperienced, shy, afraid. He’s cautious in his seduction. Taking her in small nibbles, planting the seeds of desire that will consume them both.

Riella is a Roma princess. Luca has a secret that may tear them apart.

The honeymoon is ended when Riella is abducted and taken back to her camp. Her father is seriously ill and the camp has been attacked by a rival tribe. Someone wants her father dead.

As Riella sets out to bring peace to her father in his last days, she discovers Luca’s secret. A secret that shatters her world.

Once I started reading this, I realized why the author chose this particular title. This is a love story along the lines of Romeo and Juliet.  Two people, a love so deep, and warring families. Will Riella and Luca survive their love?

There are rival gangs, betrayal, and love at first sight. Plenty to give you thrills and shivers.

I gave this 5 Stars because of how it made me feel. Giddy and warm all over, like a big hug.

Synopsis
.
Riella Smith, an unconventional Romany Princess, travels to Tuscany on the trail of her father’s challenger, to delay him and prevent unnecessary bloodshed and humiliation. What she expects is trouble from a fearsome rival. But life is rarely that easy.
The trouble she finds is of a different kind. Soon, she faces the toughest decision of her life – again – though it should really be a no-brainer. All she has to do is choose between her people and a myth.
After all, there’s no such thing as love at first sight.

Synopsis
.
“Trust me, he says. You’ll be safe with me, he says.”
Amelie Watts is sick and tired of being treated like a child. She might be willowy and delicate, but she has strength of the kind that doesn’t show on the outside. Plus, she learned all she needed to know so she could cope on her own. Now, if only her big brother would finally release her inheritance! She would fly to the Bahamas and kiss the backwater she grew up in goodbye.
Jason Watts is fed up with picking up the pieces of his little sister’s life. If only she would grow up already and learn to live life without stabilizers! Her latest idea is insane, and bound to be her most enormous failure to date. But how to make her understand?
Enter Rob Tyson, incorrigible bachelor and Jason’s best friend. For a laugh, they make a bet. Two people, a hastily acquired boat, and a tropical paradise. What could possibly go wrong?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Image of Ella MedlerElla Medler is a U.K. author and free-lance editor. She writes fiction in more than one genre in a seemingly vain attempt to slow down her overactive brain enough to write non-fiction on subjects she knows a thing or two about. She also does not believe in the starchy use of English and ignores the type of rule that doesn’t allow for a sentence to be finished in a preposition. Her books – whatever genre they may be – are action-driven. Well-developed, multi-layered characters are her forte. Loves: freedom. Hates: her inner censor.

My Review

Blood is Power (Hunter Series, book 2)

BLOOD IS POWER – book two in the Hunter Series. The action continues on international level and across multiple timezones. Darker, grittier than the first, and posing questions we’d rather not answer.

Eternal Island (Book 1 in the Eternal Series)

ETERNAL ISLAND – book one in the Eternal Series, a paranormal romance featuring an original take on vampires and witches, almost a spoof. Funny and entertaining. Collaboration with K.S. Haigwood.

    I think I love you! thank you so much, Laura! This is the best thing to wake up to when the weather is awful and you know you have a long day ahead. You made my day. So happy you loved Not Juliet. (You are going to think you’re in heaven when you read Trial Run. ARC on its way. Including the bonus cut scenes.) I like making my characters real, my female leads strong, and everyone grow through their experiences.

    Now I’d better get back to writing. Hugs. :)

  2. So Great is Ella! She is a wonderful writer and most of all, person! Ella SELL A MILLION!!! Lots of love, Emily

      You’re awesome, Emily. You and Ella and a few other authors have been like friends to me. Sherry and I were talking about how fun it would be to get together with ya’ll. Emma too. It would be such fun!

  3. Great review, Laura. Having read some of Ella’s work – and loved it – I had wondered about the romance novel. You make it sound like a book I would love. Yippee! I checked my kindle and have a copy. Must read soonest.
