BLOGTOUR: Wildflower by Amy Maurer Jones +GIVEAWAY

Love can be tragic.  17th Century America:
A Shaman’s daughter falls in love with an Englishman,
only her hand has been promised to a warrior.
Tears fall.
Promises are broken.
Rage is unleashed.
Souls are bound or shattered.
Present Day:
Laney Stillwater dreams about a boy she has never met,
but she longs for the attention of the ever popular and gorgeous, Jordan Stone.

Time tempts change.
Destined souls awaken.
Love gets a second chance.
Souls are bound or shattered.

What will destiny offer this time?
Reconciliation or more despair?

Cover: I really like this cover.  I love black and white, and then the title is in bright purple, that really makes it 'pop' at you.

This was a really quick and sweet read.  The fast pace meant I finished it in a couple of hours.
I really loved the premise of two soul mates kept apart over the centuries because of tragedy, and Wildflower/Laney and Joshua's story is a sad one and the author has really made me root for them, and hope that there is a way for them to be happy together.
Most of the time I liked Laney, mostly when she was being strong, but then other times she forgave far too readily, which frustrated me.  Whereas her best friend, Carly, was a great character- feisty, loyal and strong.
I did get a tad bored of reading so many song lyrics, I just didn't feel they gave anything to the story.
Wildflower has definitely left me wanting more, I especially want to see the mean girl, Gracie, get her comeuppance.
I recommend to anyone that loves a sweet romance story with a paranormal twist.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting me on your blog and reading and reviewing my book! :)

  2. This books sounds incredible!!! Congrats to Ms. Jones on her book!

  3. I think that you can look at someone and know if there is an attraction there, and if you would be willing to enter into a relationship with that person. I believe that love (real love) can only be found when you get to know what's on the inside of someone. In my opinion, people that say that they believe in "love at first sight" are confusing attraction with emotion.
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  4. I do believe on love at first sight, even though I have not experienced it yet. I hope to experience it with that special someone in the near future :D!
