Megan Clawson’s debut novel Falling Hard for the Royal Guard is captivating and full of charm as she takes us into the Tower of London. It’s time to walk along those streets through sacred spaces, and explore London with fresh and witty dialogue rich in details. A delightfully fun adventure that transports you into the Tower of London, a place with hundreds of years of history, secrets etched in walls, and gossip that lingers long after you’ve left.
Maggie Moore is a bit clumsy, sometimes unable to articulate her thoughts, and even a bit anxious in her quest for love, acceptance, and hope. It’s hard to feel normal when you live in the Tower of London, your dad is a Beefeater, and you are reminded of your faults on a daily basis at work. What will happen when she runs into a mysterious man and can’t stop thinking about him? Who is he and why is he there? Can she avoid the security cameras and stay out of the daily gossip?
Freddie Guildford is a Royal Guard assigned to the tower and is expected to live by duty, honor, and obligations. When he runs into Maggie his plans are turned upside down. Will he find the courage to tell Maggie the truth before it’s too late?
Journey into a place rich in history with ghosts and charm as Maggie navigates living in the Tower of London, the people she meets, and the men she attempts to date on her question to find her own prince charming in a pond full of frogs.
This sweet romance has enough sweetness to put a pink blush on your cheeks, and leave your heart full of joy. Warm, sensual, and delicious. Characters might hold hands or kiss. A warm embrace and possible mention of moving forward in an intimate nature could be mentioned. Happy Ever After or Happy For Now satisfaction.

It is Release Day for Fourth Wing by USA Today Bestselling Author Rebecca Yarros and it is currently #33 out of over 32 million books listed for sale. Congratulations Rebecca! From the first page to the last I was transported into this five hundred page book fighting to stay alive, riding dragons, and trying to figure it all out. This is the most challenging review I’ve written to date because I have so much to say yet, I don’t want to spoil a thing. If I share too much then you won’t have anything to discover. If I share too little, you could pass and select something else.
In Fourth Wing Rebecca Yarros delivers an epic world that is fresh, unique, and delivers in spades. When an author debuts a new fantasy series the worldbuilding in the first book is critical and needs to capture a reader within a few pages. From the first page the layers and layers of detail are perfection, and the dialogue is easy to navigate. Sometimes fantasy books leave a reader flipping back and forth, a few pages at a time for clarity, or referencing a glossary somewhere in the book for inorder to understand what’s happening. If you like a plot that pulls you in chapter after chapter, characters that leap off the page and into your heart for better or worse, and an adventure that keeps giving long after you have finished pack your bag and enroll in Basgiath War College today.
My no spoiler reasons why you should read this:
✔ You enjoyed: Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Divergent, The Hunger Games, or love fantasy
✔ War College – you’ll want to enroll ASAP as soon as you are finished with this book! Wait… I can’t ?!?!
✔Dragons. OMG the dragons!
✔Violet Sorrengail- a badass heroine. Knows her weaknesses, doesn’t let them define her, and never gives up.
✔Xaden Riorson – wants revenge for his father’s death.
✔ Not all can be trusted.
✔ Choices have consequences – family and friends watch your back.
✔ Secrets. So many secrets.
✔ Who will live?
✔ Who will die?
✔ Scorchin hot chemistry with electric banter and wit.
✔ When you wait a lifetime for something and discover it isn’t meant to be. What happens next you’ll never expect.
✔ The cliffhanger ending … jaw drop.
Scorchin Hot Read Caution, may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C. So steamy the pages ignite. May include a dash of Erotic elements or elude to further exploration of desire and need.
This adventure needs to be on the screen – tv or movie series, I’m fine with either. You will soar, fly, fall, twist, turn, scream, swoon and cry. I did not want the story to end and would happily have read five hundred more pages. I can’t wait for the next installment! Thank you Red Tower Books and Entangled Publishing for the advance reader copy for review consideration. All opinions are my own.
