More of the Most Happy Reader

History has long been my keenest interest and was a childhood fascination. I followed this interest to University where I obtained my BA and MA in History. My thesis was concentrated on British colonialism in Africa, but my first historical love was England, especially those Tudors. My life's greatest passion are my two boys. My most avid hobbies are reading and travel. My favorite reads are historical fiction and my favorite travel destination Western Europe. Because of the high volume of books I read and my passion for discussion I was encouraged by friends to begin a book review blog earlier this year and so The Most Happy Reader was born.

Blind Allegiance - Violetta Rand Blind Allegiance grabbed me straight away. I love that when I become so involved in reading that the stress of life melts away! Noelle is a fabulous character; confident, intelligent and tough. Rand’s artfully and skillfully creates a wonderful chemistry between Noelle and Rand, a typical romantic hero, but an endearing one.

The story was well crafted and fast paced keeping me turning the pages and eager for the next. I thought that developing the imagery would be difficult but Rand again surprised me with rich detail that transported me back in time.

Truly a superb novel from Violetta Rand and the best news of all it is the first in a series! Definitely one to put on the TBR pile!
