(adult situations, sex, and a little violence and low humor)

I received this book free from the author for an honest review.

The Colors of Passion and Love by Stan Morris has an interesting concept. The main character sees auras that tell what each person is feeling, but this is intensified when she meets her mate. However, despite the fascinating idea, the story manages to fall flat because characters are not well-developed (or solidified in the author’s mind) and the plot meanders.

The heroine’s society is supposedly matriarchal, but I felt like the author didn’t have that firmly in his mind. For example, the princess is going to forbid her brother to ride horses when she becomes queen, but the brother is going to tell the father (not his mother, the Queen) what the princess has been doing. Or when Elly says, “I knew that a good wife unpacks her husband’s belongings first.” Then there are other things that are not solid, such as when they first begin their trip, the hero and heroine decide to conceal their identities. They spend much time discussing this, but in the end, nothing comes of it. In fact, almost instantly, Elly is having people call her “Princess.”

My other complaint is that the book is long. I didn’t mind the descriptions, although a few were off topic, but little happens to add to the plot throughout. It feels as if the characters and I were traveling down a slow, lazy river, and we may or may not ever get to our destination. I never felt they were in danger or in urgent need to continue forward with their journey. When we finally get to the first real battle more than halfway through the book, it lasts less than 400 words. In fact, all the few conflicts are comparatively brief.

I think this has the potential to be a good story, but it needed to be tightened up. The characters needed to be consistent. Many of the unnecessary descriptions could have been cut and tension should have been added.

(I won a free copy of this book in the Library of Erana Valentine's Day giveaway, and I would like to thank Library of Erana and the author for the book.)

I really wasn't sure what to expect from this book when I won a copy of it. The cover on the edition I received looked like it might be a children's book (in spite of the title), but I was delighted to discover that it's a very charming romantic fantasy (and it's definitely for adults and older teens, with some mildly to moderately explicit love scenes).

Elly, the Princess of Quail, has the gift of the women in her family to see the colors of men's auras and emotions. So when she sees Magesty, the bastard son of an enemy king, for the first time, she knows they were destined to be together. Fortunately, Magesty is open to the idea, if a little wary. As the two of them are feeling their way around their budding relationship, a treacherous attack on the royal palace of Quail forces them, along with Elly's brother Jode and her best friend Daina, to flee for their lives, to take refuge in Magesty's realm and then to defend against more treachery.

I enjoyed Elly's character as she's in that awkward stage of being both a sheltered teenage girl and discovering love and danger for the first time in her life. She's brave and smart, and although she makes a few mistakes along the way, she avoids the trap so many spunky teenage fantasy heroines fall into of doing stupid things just to show that they're strong and independent. Magesty is also admirable; he's older and more experienced, but when he finds himself faced with a young girl - the daughter of his country's enemy, no less - claiming that they were destined to be together, he handles it well and becomes an ideal friend, protector, and lover.

I like this book. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review but that fact does not affect my opinion in any way. I hate spoilers and so do not give summaries of books when I write reviews. I prefer getting straight to the things I like or dislike.

First, the characters are very well drawn – and not just the two main leads. Daina and Jode are also appealing individuals who seem like real people.

Second, the love story is well done. Let me mention that I am old and curmudgeonly and never ever read romance novels. This book is NOT one of those tired stereotyped stories. The wedding night scene especially is both sweet and sexy. Admittedly, this is one of those true-love-at-first-sight tales but the author gives a fresh take with an explanation of how it happened. Technically it’s a ‘scientific’ explanation within the framework of this fantasy world (although we would call it magic here in the mundane real world).

Other reviewers have commented about some overly detailed descriptions of the land and about a somewhat abrupt ending. I agree with them, but that does not stop this book from being an enjoyable tale worthy of praise.

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

When I first received this book and read the summary I was very excited to start reading.

I found the story to have entirely too much detail regarding the land and how the countries were laid out, but not enough detail into the characters until the end of the story.

With that being said, I love the relationship between Elly and Magesty. Magesty is always taking care of Elly; she never has to second guess his agenda or his love for her. The love and passion that they share is magical. Elly can always tell how the Magesty feels (good or bad) as she can see and tell the many colors of his aura. They really get to know each other under some stressful circumstances and in a short period of time with people always around.

Prince Jode is Elly's protective brother and is always close by making sure the Princess is taken care of. I love the sibling love that is showed between the two. Jode is very dedicated to do what is right even if it means standing and fighting with Magesty Yoll Master of Arete to stop the feud between the families.

I feel just as I was really getting into the storyline and the characters it was over. I wish I could have read more about the characters as things settled down to normal routine living.

Overall this story is very intriguing and I would recommend this to anyone that loves a good magical romance.

My Favorite Character: Daina by far. She is Elly's best friend and the bickering and sisterly love they have for each other is incredible.

My Favorite Moment: The garden on the palace grounds. Elly is very straight forward with the Magesty of Arete with what she desires.
