Oria's Gambit - Jeffe Kennedy

Princess Oria has one chance to keep her word and stop her brother’s reign of terror: She must become queen. All she has to do is marry first. And marry Lonen, the barbarian king who defeated her city bare weeks ago, who can never join her in a marriage of minds, who can never even touch her—no matter how badly she wants him to.

To rule is to suffer, but Lonen never thought his marriage would become a torment. Still, he’s a resourceful man. He can play the brute conqueror for Oria’s faceless officials and bide his time with his wife. And as he coaxes secrets from Oria, he may yet change their fate…

With deception layering on deception, Lonen and Oria must claim the throne and brazen out the doubters. Failure means death— for them and their people.


But success might mean an alliance powerful beyond imagining... 

My thoughts:
Arghh, 4 days since I read this one and I have not written a review!!! Seriously, this is why I write at once cos I forget what I feel.

Lonen and Oria are married..well soon. But anyway, a political marriage. She needs his image, he needs, well he does not need her, but she needs him. Oh and he wants her, but can not have her, because she can not be with anyone. Sucks being her. No one can touch her cos she feels pain then. But hey maybe they will find a way *hint hint*

But first there is her stupid brother causing trouble. The stupid priestess causing the trouble. The Trom that are, I want to know more there....

And these two who want each other but can not have each other. I really hope they find a way, dunno what the author will do but I am curious!!

Conclusion:
Romance, politics, danger and intrigues. And just two people starting to fall for each other. So meant to be.

More romance in this one, so that was nice.

  1. I like the story line. Not a fan of the cover, though. I hope the whole, not-being-able-to-touch-her was not conveniently solved by him being the exception. That would be disappointing. :/

  3. I'm like you, I almost have to start writing it when I finish or I'll forget the nuance. Sounds like you remembered enough to have me curious about it! :)

  5. This one might be too romance heavy for me, but in any case this book doesn't seem like a good place to jump on board. I will look up book 1.

  9. The same thing happens to me after I read a book and wait a day or so to write a review. I usually write down notes while I'm reading so I can remember what I want to say. lol

    1. I do not do notes, I feel that for me they take away the experience so that is why I have to write at once

  10. I feel like I'm going to need to wait until all three books are out before I start this series. I want the whole story/romance. And look at you - happy for MORE romance! ;-)

  11. I think that's an interesting thing to add to the plot; them not being able to be together. I hope the author gives you answers in the next book!
