With The Protector’s Promise releasing today, I thought it a good time to discuss one of my favorite romance genres–the enemies to lovers romance. In book two of the Border Series, the two warring families, Clan Kerr and the Waryns, clash in epic fashion when Brockburg Manor is taken back by Bryce Waryn and Catrina Kerr is taken captive. And though many of the tensions from the Border Series books arise from divided loyalties and the turbulent nature of the 13th century Anglo-Scottish border, this book truly pitted two enemies against each other.
And now, because this is one of my favorite tropes, I’ve done it again.
Toss together an English knight, a Scottish lady and a magical stone which can control the fate of Scotland, and we have ourselves an old-fashioned enemies to lovers romance like none other. Sir William (aka “Court”) needs that stone to take the only remaining obstacle between he and the only thing he’s ever wanted, a title and land of his own. Unfortunately for him, Lady Marion needs that stone to protect her homeland; Scotland’s fate depends on it. With a slight touch of magic and one magical unchaperoned trip from the Isle of Skye in Scotland to the wilds of Northumbria, ‘The Protector’s Promise’ delivers what every enemies to lovers romance demands–tension, passion and a wee bit of adventure as well.
In case you’re considering creating your own enemies to lovers romance, here’s the recipe I used. Enjoy! And don’t forget to grab The Protector’s Promise on Amazon for a special .99 release week price. As always, it’s in Kindle Unlimited as well.
