The Bed Wife: Book One

In a world of stalking troll hordes and malicious plotting for the throne, two former childhood friends are forced together by an archaic tradition.

Luana and Baylin’s lives are vastly different. She, the peasant daughter of the town drunk, left to care for her family’s goat farm. He, the Prince and future King of Grasmere, who nobly rides into battle to protect the kingdom from lurking evils.

However, Fate intercedes with a time-honored tradition that dates back five hundred years. To their mutual distain, Luana’s life is thrust into the hands of her future king, filling both with resentment over the intimate duties forced upon them.

Unable to escape their callings, the pair must discover if friendship or affection can be formed when the freedom of choice is wiped away.

My Thoughts:

This audiobook was my first introduction to Ms. Lynn's work. I'm glad that I had the chance to listen to this beginning of The Bed Wife Chronicles. But a little sad that it took me so long. That fault is mine alone because I've come to listen/read more contemporary tales and historical ones have been taken to the back burner. Our author is good at teasing which had me wanting to know "will they, won't they". It made the couple of hours pass by too quickly.

This story reminds me how far we've come since days long gone. It made me wonder how the women of today would handle the situation that Luana finds herself in. Baylin seems that he would be an honorable man whether in his own point in time or in this one. It was not hard to picture the scenes as they went by and part of that was due to Mr. Maxwell. In no way does he attempt to take on Luana's persona. I could see him as a bard and we would sitting at his feet as he tells us his latest tale. Having an accent helps the reader with the setting and how the characters might talk.

Part of my regret is the fact at how quickly this story went by. Even though I knew this was a novella, I didn't want this tale to end. I wanted some more time in the presence of Baylin and Luana. The good thing is that I can follow the Chronicles and once finished, I can go back and revisit at any time. It will make my commutes a lot more pleasurable. The author's ending left me with a smile. It will remind you what historical romances are all about.

 The Heir: Book Two

When Baylin and Luana find out she is with child, they are certain the worst of their struggles are behind them. Their relationship grows stronger every day, and the entire Kingdom of Grasmere is celebrating the prospect of an heir to the throne. But their blissful reprieve is brought to an abrupt end by the arrival of the royal family from Mirstone. They bring with them the prospect of an arranged marriage and the threat of another troll war.

Forced to choose between love and fealty, Baylin knows the wrong decision could unleash a savage uprising between the Keld Kingdoms.

Can love survive in a world of mythical creatures and archaic customs? Or will it be ripped to shreds by the vicious talons of duty and war?

The Queen: Book Three

King Ashmur is on his deathbed, making tensions run high within his kingdom. Taking advantage of the ruler’s weakened state, Lord Cadman coerces Mirstone into declaring war on Grasmere. But they are not alone in their vile intensions towards the realm. A malevolent evil is lurking in the shadows, determined to devour everything in its wake.

While Baylin assumes the duties of his ailing father and readies the Kingdom for battle, Luana uncovers a dangerous elven secret that changes everything.

Luana and Baylin’s simple wish for happiness is once again threatened by deadly circumstances straining the delicate core of their love. Will dark betrayals from the past be enough to tear the two apart? Or will the smoke of war clear to reveal their love standing stronger than ever?

The Bed Wife:

Author Suzanna Lynn is a full-time mom of three beautiful, energetic children and spends her days with them and her husband in a small town nestled in the deep rolling hills of Missouri.

Growing up in the Ozarks, as a child Suzanna spent her days wandering the fields and woods surrounding her home. While most children avoided the dark corners of the woods, she sought it out, imagining them to be filled with fairies, dragons and all number of creatures.

Having not lost her childhood imagination, Suzanna has written numerous poems, songs and short stories that won various awards in high school and college.

However, in 2014 she decided to stop wishing she could publish a book and made the dream a reality when she released The Bed Wife.

That first novella gave birth to two more books, completing the series, and stirred the embers of a new five-book series called The Untold Stories, which is currently in the works.

When she's not busy writing or spending time with her family, Suzanna loves to draw and paint, as well as scrapbook. She also has been known to volunteer with her children's school, the local Ladies Auxiliary veterans group and even the local zoo!
