What’s a gal to do after the Worst Date Ever? by Melodie Campbell #amreading #romance #romcom

One day I am going to write a book.  It is going to be called, A Dummy’s Guide to Men.  It will include all sorts of useful tips, such as: How to find Prince Charming in a sea of Prince Ronalds.

Today’s Revolving Book is THE WORST DATE EVER by Melodie Campbell. (New Release!)

What it’s about:

Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs…

 Jennie has been a widow for two years.  Her twelve year old son thinks it’s about time she started dating, and so does her friend Angela. So Jennie signs up for an online dating site. Within hours, she has several first dates lined up for the week. Surely they’ll be one Prince Charming in the bunch.  And if not, it’s only one date, right?  How bad could it be?

SYNOPSIS

“Is that a broadsword on your belt, or are you just glad to see me?”

When Rowena falls through her classroom wall and lands in a medieval world, she doesn’t count on being kidnapped ―not once, but twice, dammit― and the stakes get higher as the men get hotter. Unwanted husbands keep piling up, but that doesn’t stop her from falling for the wrong brother. Not only that, she has eighteen year old Kendra to look out for and a war to prevent. Good thing she can go back through the wall when she needs to.

Or can she?

FULL REVIEWS:

5.0 out of 5 stars Melodie Campbell does it again! July 5, 2014
By A.E. Bruce, Amazon Customer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rowena and the Viking Warlord is the capstone of Melodie’s Land’s End Trilogy. The funny parts are funnier. The sexy bits are sexier. And the tension is ramped up as Rowena sails a difficult course between duty and love.

The consequences Rowena has to deal with in Rowena and the Viking Warlord make the other adventures look like a walk in the park. Melodie’s research into historical weapons and warfare add weight to the setting. When a soldier is put to death after killing one of his comrades, you can almost hear the heavy axe fall. Equal effort seems to have been put into the creation of the magic in Land’s End. Melodie sets the rules and sticks to them, often sticking it to poor Rowena.

If you’ve read Rowena Through the Wall and Rowena and the Dark Lord, you don’t need me to tell you to pick up Rowena and the Viking Warlord. If you haven’t, buy the whole series and have a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raising the 5-Star Flag! July 3, 2014
By H34me
Format:Kindle Edition
Ever since I picked up the first book in the Land’s End series, I’ve been hooked. Melodie Campbell writes foot-stomping funny, yet romantic endearing, stories that keep me turning the electronic pages well past bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book and series July 9, 2014
By Barbara Dewey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book and series. The twists & turns were unpredictable. I wasn’t sure who Rowena would choose as her partner until the end. All characters were complex and interesting. This series was a must read for me

SYNOPSIS

Dark magic…dark passions….

When Rowena is abducted back to medieval Land’s End, one thing is clear: she must learn to control her powers of magic. It isn’t easy being a modern girl in an archaic land, and when Rowena accidentally conjures up a Roman Legion in mid-battle, Land’s End is on the brink of a war that could jeopardize everything and everyone she loves.

The stakes are raised when the Dark Lord reappears and traps Rowena in a cyclone of lust and passion. Once again, she is torn between the man she loves and the mage who fires her desire.
