The Winter Lord is a man like no other. He rules the world together with the Summer Lady, the Autumn Lord and the Lady of Spring. That alone says that the Winter Lord is the wrong man to fall in love with, but Dawn loves him anyway.

The last thing Dawn expects is to be placed inside the Winter Lord's prison because of a minor dispute. When he visits her and asks her to marry him, Dawn knows that nothing will ever be the same again. Her entire world is put into a spin, but soon, she realizes that things aren't as they should be. The Winter Lord is hiding something, and when the truth is revealed, she understands that only one thing can save her life ...

This is a passionate and erotic love story for adult readers. It takes place in a magical fantasy world where the Elders rule the seasons.

My Thoughts

Winter’s Bride is the first book in an adult paranormal romance series, called the Elders of the Seasons. The first book follows the winter lord. I loved the concept behind the Elders of the Seasons. There are four elders that rule the land. Each one of them gets to take a turn to rule, during…you guessed it, their season.  The other piece to the story that I really loved was that the Elders all lived together in this one city. It was a tiny town because while the elders were not mean per se they were pretty scary to a lot of people, so there are not too many people that move to live closer to them, but the people that do live there have a pretty good life.

Winter’s Bride follows the story of Dawn, a young woman in this small town and the Winter Lord. The Winter Lord has never had any interest in marrying, until a string of events surrounding one of the other elders has forced him into taking a bride. And then he meets Dawn….What was actually really sweet was that Dawn has had a crush/ infatuation with the Winter Lord for as long as she can remember. I liked the interaction between the Winter Lord and Dawn, and I really liked the concept and the storyline.

My only issue with Winter’s Bride was that Dawn sometimes seemed like a lost little girl. She was a bit naiive, which didn’t fit in the situations she found herself in. Some of the scenes were a bit over the top as well. The Winter Lord was hard to get a read on as well. I would have liked to see a bit more inside his head to get a better idea of what he was thinking and truly feeling. But the pull of the elders kept me more than enough interested in the storyline. I can’t wait to see where Nellie C. Lind is going to take it next.

    Pretty cover for this!

    Hopefully Dawn gets to be a stronger character as the series goes. I love the whole concept of the four Elders. It sounds unique and really interesting!

    Wonderful review Michelle and Happy Friday!

    This really does remind me of the story of Hades and Persephone for some reason… but then it is also completely different xD I am glad you could like the concept and the idea so much. Just a bit of a shame about the naivety of the main character. I really don’t like it when main characters are like that >.>
