Publisher's Summary

The last thing Leofred Toustain ever wanted was to be tied in marriage to the daughter of an enemy lord. Yet, when a peace treaty is forged in an attempt to mend the war-torn realm of Alemere that is precisely what he is faced with. To add insult to injury, the bride chosen for him is a sullen, silent shell of a woman who recoils from his every attempt at intimacy. Resigned to his fate, he strives to at least form a friendship of sorts with her. In the process, he will discover that there is far more to the woman he married than meets the eye.
After a harrowing incident left her broken and hideously scarred, Lady Emery Calliot fully intended to avoid marriage. However, when her only living male relative and guardian signs her life away in a peace treaty, she is left with no other choice. Determined to keep her scars - both physical and internal - a secret, she seeks to place as much distance between herself and Leofred as possible. Yet, the more time she spends with her new husband, the harder hiding from him becomes. Emery will face a daunting decision: reveal her scars and the dark secret accompanying them to her husband and risk his disgust and scorn, or bare her secrets and find acceptance, love, and perhaps, the strength she needs to become whole again.

5 Stars for Elise Marion

The War Bride, Novella Two of the Chained Series by Elise Marion

My Review:
5 Star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is the story of Leofred and Emery! Two people with past events in their lives that have caused trauma. They are made to marry as part of the treaty to keep Alamere one united Kingdom. It follows their story of finding love while moving past tragedy and trauma. It also continues the story of the Chained novels. I listened to it on Audible and the narrator is great at what he does! Just as the author is absolutely wonderful!

This is the second book of the Chained novellas. Next is The Heir.

Another great story from a diverse series.

I really loved the characters it this story.. I'm glad the female character was a strong survivor & found someone that took time to understand the fall in love with her.. This was worth a credit/money..
