Publisher's Summary

The maiden was just another treasure to be won - until she stole his heart and changed his life forever.
Outraged that her beloved brother's soul is to be the Fae tithe to Hell, Elizabeth knows that she must save him. She is the only one in her family who can see the Fae, after all, and is already cursed by their king herself. Malcolm may have offered to replace his comrade out of honor, but Elizabeth knows who better deserves to live - and it is not the handsome rogue, Rafael, who is concerned with his own welfare alone. It should be easy to make a wager with a mercenary, especially as Elizabeth does not care about the cost to herself. To her surprise, though, Rafael proves to be the man who not only takes her dare, but banishes the Fae king's curse with kisses that turn her blood to fire. Could this hardened warrior, who appears to have no heart, be the destined love she has awaited?
At first glimpse, Rafael believes Elizabeth to be an angel sent to judge him - and he knows what her verdict will be. He has made choices in order to survive and is not proud of them. But Elizabeth dares him to change, with an audacity that awakens a nobility of purpose that Rafael has forgotten he possessed. Can this bold maiden heal the wounds of his past? Can Rafael earn the right to grant her the life she deserves - and do so before the Fae king springs his trap, making Elizabeth his captive forever?

The team of Delacroix and Maarleveld Rock!

If you could sum up The Warrior's Prize in three words, what would they be?

Sexy, Period-perfect, epic

What did you like best about this story?

I love the sweeping vistas, the amazing characters and the fantastic storytelling voice of Claire Delacroix

What does Saskia Maarleveld bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

both her male and female voices, her melodious voice and her perfect accent

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was well worth the wait

Any additional comments?

Claire continues her prolific Lammegeir saga with Elizabeth and Rafael’s tale. Her breathtaking medieval historically correct Scottish backdrops and bygone dialogue sets a realistic, excellent era scene for readers, and her smooth mellifluous narrative sets the perfect pace. But it’s her hero and heroine that rule this novel with their interesting backgrounds, their hardships and their tenacity that really stand out. We also get to reconnect with all the Lammegeir siblings, the spouses and see how the clan is growing. Along with fabulous characters, an epic tale and a bit of fantasy plus the ending was fantastic.

Once again the audible version was put in the capable melodious voice of Saskia Maarleveld who brings listeners right into the story with her splendid accent, her skillful changing from female to male and her impeccable cadence that makes the story come alive and allows fans to enjoy an experience that’s more in depth than just reading it would be.
Have you ever from the beginning of a series known there was one story you couldn’t wait to read; well Elizabeth Lammegeir’s story was mine in Claire Delacroix’s True Love Bride’s series.
Elizabeth is the youngest of Roland and Catherine Lammegeir and has been a ward of her oldest brother Alexander since their parents’ death. She’s always been a force to be reckoned with and the most vocal of her sisters in regards to choosing her own spouse. She’s also the only one of her family with the gift/curse of being able to see the fey which has gotten her in and out of all kinds of trouble and it might just be that same gift/curse that will get her, her true heart’s desire; the most handsome companion of her brother Malcolm, Rafael Rodriguez.
Mercenary Rafael Rodriguez covets the beauteous maiden Elizabeth but knows that he is not good enough for someone of her status so he must convince her that she must look elsewhere for a husband but she is not so easy to deny. And he doesn’t want to!

The Warrior’s Prize ended up being my favorite boo

Any additional comments?

Oh, what a suspenseful tale we find in the Warrior’s Prize! Elizabeth is the last unwed sister of Alexander’s and takes place at Ravensmuir. The beginning of the story overlaps with the ending of The Frost Maiden’s Kiss, Malcolm’s story and we faced intense battles and dealings with the Fae. The overlap worked wonderfully. Elizabeth has always been able to see the Fae and has caught the Fae King’s eye who seeks to trap her forever.

Rafael is a mercenary who fought with Malcolm and the reason Malcolm found himself in trouble with the Fae. Elizabeth sets out to make Rafael surrender to the Fae, but finds herself smitten. Of course, she is young and fancies a life as a mercenary’s wife to be thrilling and exciting. Despite his attraction to Lady Elizabeth Rafael knows he cannot ask this of her.

I was not sure if Rafael would cause me to swoon as he did Elizabeth but swoon I did. He was a fierce warrior and soothing on the eye but I am not a wanderer and I wondered if he was honorable enough. Delacroix soon had me falling for him and I felt he was perfectly suited for Elizabeth.

Impossible love and the devious Fae had me completely caught up in the tale. I wanted my HEA and anxious to see how it would all play out. This had me listening into the wee hours of the night and looking for excuses to grab my earbuds. In The Warrior’s Prize Delacroix weaved in so many twists that I found myself holding my breath and yelling at the characters. I love when an author gets me so caught up in the story that the characters become real. Both Rafael and Elizabeth are strong, determined and stubborn characters. The two together created an electricity that you could actually feel. Finvarra, the Fae King was wicked and the perfect villain. I loved seeing previous characters and others from the fairy realm.

Saskia Maarleveld has been the narrator throughout the series and I absolutely loved listening to her. Even her male voices were soothing and not that hoarse tone we often hear from female narrators. I could easily identify who was speaking as she drew me into the story.
