4.5 stars — Well this one had me on a rollercoaster of emotions. Seriously. I mean, yeah, perhaps I was PMS-ing a wee bit, but I was honest to god bawling at one point and had to put the book down. There’s just something about the way Ms. Chase writes that has me connecting to her characters so fully that I *feel* their heartbreak, their loss, their loneliness. I’m not sure what I was expecting from Queen Lenora’s story, but I don’t think I was quite prepared for that.
She got to me, you know? Lenora had such a strange upbringing, and she was so isolated in so many ways, I just felt for the weight of responsibility on her shoulders, and how she felt such a barrier between herself and everyone else. It just got to me. SHE got to me. I kind of want to go back and reread the series, b/c now I have a different perspective on her. She was so fierce. I mean, yeah, she was stubborn, and somewhat entitled (reasonably so in her position), but she was also principled and the strength it took to step into that position at such a young age…well she is the stuff to be admired. I loved the way she loved her country, and truly fought back as much as she could in that time period to do what she thought was right.
We didn’t really get to meet Edward until well into the book, so I’m not sure I felt like I connected with him quite as much. In the end, I didn’t know *him* so much as the him he was in relation to Lenora. That didn’t bother me, it’s just something I realized as I’m writing this review. But I did love the Edward that came home. He dealt with some pretty heavy blows, but became a real strength to Lenora…he connected to the woman underneath and not the Queen. I loved the way he supported her, and that even though he faltered at times, he took responsibility for his actions. He was very much an alpha in so many ways, but he was also not afraid to be vulnerable. I loved that dichotomy.
And their romance was truly a story worth telling. I think because of all the different aspects that Ms. Chase wanted to convey, the story occasionally felt a little choppy with the time jumps, mostly near the end. But I loved the rest of the story so much, it really didn’t affect my enjoyment at’all. I ADORED the feelings they developed for one another, and how I connected with not just their attraction, but their genuine deepening feelings. I believed the progression of their relationship, and it made my heart so happy! And hoo boy, the steamy scenes were delicious!
One last point: Thomas. There were many fantastic secondary characters (Miriam, Alfie, Winston), but Thomas took the cake. I was half in love with him at the first dance. He took this story from beautiful to extraordinary. I can’t say more without giving spoilers, but I adored the glasses in the pocket. When you read it, you’ll understand.
So yeah. I don’t know what it is about the way Ms. Chase writes, but I just connect with her characters. I laughed and cried and just felt all the feelings, from grief to pure joy. And it didn’t hurt that when I was reading the steamy scenes, Edward was *almost* saying my name… 😉
This was such a heartfelt story, I was either smiling from the wonderful humor or trying not to cry from all the amazing moments that take place. I loved learning every single thing about Lenora. I already adored her as the strong, older queen she was in the other books but learning her history, of how she truly became to be was wonderful. Such a sweet girl full of sass who has to take on a very serious role. There was just so much feeling and emotion behind it all, some of it felt absolutely crushing and devastating. But it's these things and moments that form who Lenora is. As for Edward, he was the definition of swoon-worthy. I loved how sexy and confident he was. I loved his devotion to his brother and what he'd do for him. I loved him opening up to Leonora and challenging her and being her champion. Their chemistry was amazing and I loved watching them ignite. Lenora was so inexperienced but watching that playful heat between them build was awesome. I loved those steamy and passionate times.
I loved and adored a beautiful friendship that Lenora formed in her youth and how it played out into adulthood. It just felt so poignant and real. I like how her friendships and bonds form who she is. I loved the parallels of her and her sister to her grandchildren in the other books in the series. I loved the connections and characters that were introduced that play a part of the other books as well. The story is set in the 50's, a totally different time for women and I love how Lenora dealt with issues related to that time period and how she stood up for herself. Her dealing with a group of grumpy old men is priceless. The attention to detail and how the author brought it all together was amazing.
There’s emotion, humor, and a bit of drama. There are heartbreaking moments and entertaining ones. There is passion and heat and so much love. This had everything I could have wanted and so much more. Hands down Emma Chase is a favorite, go-to author for me and this is one of the best things she's ever written. Having read this series in order, I wasn't sure what to expect since I know Lenora as a much older queen. It was an absolute eye opener getting to see her younger self, the things I loved about her in previous stories kick into place and mean even more.
Lenora and Edward have a beautiful, heartfelt love story that's playful and passionate, I couldn't have asked for more. There were just so many precious things that brought this story to life. Absolute perfection!
