Review: Assaie’s Gift #RRBC

4 STARS FOR ASSAIE’S GIFT

Author – D.E. Howard

First Published – 2015 

Genre – Fantasy

SubGenre – Romantic Elements

Setting – Earth; Goddess Realm

Heroine – Kia; Assaie

Hero – Xander; Jacob

Major Theme – Love endures and heals; features parallel stories on earth and goddess realm

Descriptors – light, delightful, fanciful, as appealing as our favorite childhood fairy tale

Favorite Supporting Character – Mother, the wise old woman who took in a hungry goddess

Fun Tidbit – I’m used to reading romances with 3rd person POV. This book with its plethora of POVs was a lot of fun. Example: She still had an outfit to choose and didn’t see her mother wiping a tear from her eye as she watched Kia leave the room.

Memorable Line – “What kind of boyfriend do I have that won’t let me cut him up a little bit?”

 

Buy Assaie’s Gift – a steal at 99 cents!

 

Cheers & Happy Reading!

Having recently joined RRBC, this is my first block party with the crew. I look forward to meeting and getting to know everyone. Paying homage to our SPRINGTIME theme, here are some delights that are meaningful to me as a Florida native and inspirational as a paranormal fantasy romance author. Enjoy!

SPRINGS –  Our family likes weekend day trips, and Juniper Springs is one of our favorites.

RIVER – My two little grandsons enjoy boating on the Withlachoochee River.

BEACH — We especially love to zoom over to the beaches on the east coast of Florida.

POOL – With summer coming, it is time to plan poolside grilling and cocktails.

For me, the hardest part of writing is the initial 1st rough draft. It often feels like jumping off a cliff. To combat my resistance, my habit is to work on one of my 1st rough drafts seven days a week. The daily routine lessens the cliff sensation. Do you play any tricks like that on yourself? Still, I need my fur fae, Marigold, (and an endless supply of coffee) to see me through.  

Thank you for visiting my part of Rave Reviews Book Club’s Springtime Book & Block Party, Conjuring the Magic in Romance! I hope you enjoyed our Florida waterworks of springs, river, beach, and pool–which one do you like best?
