My Review:

I’m so pleased to have had the chance to read an advanced copy of Beguiling Her Enemy Warrior by Lucy Morris. I’ve loved The Shieldmaiden Sisters series, and I’m sad to see it end. That being said, Beguiling Her Enemy Warrior is a brilliant conclusion to the trilogy. It’s exciting and entertaining, and I adored the love story and the amazing epilogue!

We were introduced to Helga and Rhys in the previous books in the trilogy. Helga is the youngest of the shieldmaiden sisters, and she is the only one who is not a warrior. Rhys is the villain who kidnaps Helga in book two. I adored their enemies-to-lovers romance and feel like any time there’s a character named Rhys, I immediately fall in love with him. And when he’s brooding and mysterious with a lot of layers, I swoon. So, I swooned a lot as I read this book. lol

Rhys sees his own hypocrisy and learns from it. I love how much he grows and changes over the course of the story. He listens to and respects Helga, and he makes her feel heard and respected. I think he supports her in ways she is not used to. Helga (love her!!!) also changes throughout her journey. She understands her family a little better, and she becomes more self-aware and assured. I love seeing her confidence grow, as her relationship with Rhys deepens.

The story has action and suspense, and an overarching threat that has been lurking since book one is finally addressed. I liked seeing how many of the characters from the previous books had a part in helping Helga, her sisters, and their partners. It’s exciting and intense and very entertaining.

This is such a fantastic historical romance series! The female protagonists are strong and fierce, their partners are dynamic and complex, and the romances are positively swoon-tastic. And the epilogue! It was everything I could ever hope for in a HEA, and seeing how all of the characters’ lives have grown, changed, and come together while offering glimpses of their happy futures warmed my heart. And Valda’s crewmates are so sweet and comical. I just love them! This is by far one of my favorite all-time epilogues!

Special thanks to Harlequin Historical and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of the book. All thoughts are my own.



Favorite Parts:

  • The romance!
  • The suspense.
  • The epilogue.

Favorite Lines:

Fate is a funny thing. Nothing is ever chance, yet it all appears to be.

If a man uses his strength as a weapon, he only proves how weak he truly is.

I can still sympathize with your hardships while bearing my own.
