After Dark Review of The Bear and The Bride by Jianne Carlo

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)

Synopsis: "Jarl Torsten glimpses Ainslin of Durham, a recent widow with two sons, and immediately covets her for his wife. He outmaneuvers his rival, Ainslin’s neighbor Earl Sigrid, and receives the king’s blessing to marry her.
Ainslin fears Torsten reaction when he discovers she’s a virgin. How to explain her maidenhead and twin sons?
Her worst nightmares are realized when Earl Sigrid arrives in Norway for King Cnut’s coronation. What does he suspect? Will Torsten cast Ainslin and the boys aside when he discovers the truth?"
My Review: I saw a review of this on Pedantic Phooka book blogger's page and loved the idea. The characters are fantastic! I loved each of them, I just wish there was more story development. There were a lot of great story plot ideas that could have extended the book but they were all cut short and resolved without any major conflicts. However if you are looking for a hot steamy book to read in one night, this is it!

My Rating: While I wish there was more story to this one, the characters were great and it was exactly what I was looking to read at the time. I give it a rating of Three Paws.

Note: Explicit scenes and a lot of them
