Winter's Bride by Nellie C. Lind is now one of my all time favorite books! I can't even begin to describe how unique and exciting this story was! The characters were all super awesome and I have never read another book that was close to this one. This story is completely different than anything else you have ever read. It is very refreshing!
In this book you meet a young woman named Dawn. She lives at home with her family, and has currently turned down multiple offers of marriage because she is in love with an elder, the Winter Lord. In Dawn's world there is a lord or lady for each season: summer, spring, winter, and fall. These lords are known as the elders, and they are here to help the world. The Winter Lord receives terrible news and due to drastic life changes, he now needs to find a wife. One day, the Winter Lord had spots Dawn, and is completely intrigued by her. He then realizes how much Dawn loves him, and how long she has been in love with him. This changes everything for Dawn. The Winter Lord now wants her. The Winter Lord will ask for her hand in marriage. There is something odd about the Winter Lord though. Why does he want Dawn all of a sudden? He doesn't love her. Why is her love and devotion so important to someone who doesn't love her in return? What is he hiding?
"He is a winter being, Dawn. It's not in his nature to be emotional, but you have done something to him, and from where I'm standing, it seems to be for the better."
The elders have many secrets and ceremonies that Dawn does not know about. Passing by a room one day, Dawn learns about a secret that the Winter Lord has been keeping from her. This secret is about her. This secret means life or death. Once Dawn discovers this, everything changes. Can the Winter Lord and Dawn survive this? Will their relationship get past this? All Dawn knows, is that she can not get pregnant. And then it happens. She is pregnant. Can the Winter Lord save her? Can the Winter Lord love her?
The Winter's Bride is so well written. I love every minute of this book. I stayed up until 5 am in the morning because I could not go to sleep until I finished this AMAZING story. This book is full of heart break, love, magic, friendship, secrets, royalty, jealousy, and loyalty! Once again, I have never read anything like this before, and I am in awe. I can not believe how good this book was and I will talk about this book forever! It is all I can think about at the moment. The second book, will not come soon enough. Nellie C. Lind's words were perfectly chosen. Her words flowed flawlessly into my mind and played through it, like I was watching it happen, right before my eyes. I can honestly say that everyone needs to read this book!
"I'm not royal."
"No, you're perfect."
