“Though it has a slow beginning, Valentine was a fun read and I am excited to read the next installment.” ~ Under the Covers

Valentine is smooth as they get. Swept me right under my feet. Known as a womanizer and the biggest flirt but loyal to the bone. He has long been banned from his hometown and labeled a traitor. Along with his brothers in arms, they will prove their innocence.

Lady Mary Beckham is sure to marry her handsome knight but she just found out she is married to another; an arrangement made by her parents when she was a child. Her plans are to find this man, dissolve the marriage and get back to her bethroed.  But in this journey, her life will take a major detour.

It was slow to start but Maria and Valentine’s adventures kept me reading. I enjoyed reading both of their backgrounds and bits of their pasts. Getting pieces of historical information was fascinating as well. Valentine was a perfect gentleman when he wanted to but also fierce when it came to survival. I found him intriguing especially when he refuse to react on his feelings towards Maria. It lead to a slow romance but I appreciated the absence of inta-love.

Though it has a slow beginning, Valentine was a fun read and I am excited to read the next installment.

About Heather Grothaus

Heather Grothaus has published eight novels since 2006, which
have been translated into several foreign languages. She fell in love with
historical romance after reading a Kathleen E. Woodiwiss novel when she
was far too young to be doing so, and has since built a

heart-wrenching emotion. When she’s not writing, she spends her time
gardening, listening to music, reading, and
watching Sherlock. She lives on a small farm in Kentucky with her family.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
