– ‘The Magic of Wor(l)ds’ blog is a hobby, reviews and other bookish stuff on this site are done for free. –
Today I’m on the ‘The Maiden and the Mercenary’ blogtour, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.
To promote this book I have a guest post, but before I let you read it first some ‘basic’ information.
About the Author :
Nicole first discovered romance novels hidden in her grandmother’s closet. Convinced hidden books must be better, Nicole greedily read them. It was only natural she should start writing them (but now not so secretly).
If she isn’t working on the next book in her historical series, she can be reached at NicoleLocke.com!
Keep your friends close…
But your enemies closer?
In order to find a legendary treasure map, mercenary Louve of Mei Solis must infiltrate his enemy’s fortress under the guise of a servant. There, Louve meets beautiful maiden Biedeluue, a fellow servant with her own hidden agenda…to save her sister from the malevolent Lord’s clutches! Their high-stakes missions may be at odds with one other, but their attraction cannot be denied even in this most dangerous of situations…

Top Ten things about the Heroine Biedeluue
1. I’m very aware that the heroine’s name is close to Beetlejuice. This was not intentional, but I can’t vouch for my subconscious since Biedeluue’s antics can lean towards Tim Burton at times.
2. Though I try to avoid it, I’m also very aware that my heroines’ often adopt aspects of what’s happening in my own life (not too much, they are usually more plucky then me,…oh, and Medieval). However, Biedeluue may have adopted a bit more of my traits than most.
3. Of course, I only wish I was as curvy and gorgeous as she, but the inspiration for Bied is Lulu Bonfils.
4. Biedeluue’s the kind of heroine I love: feisty, opinionated, takes risks, and is absolutely loyal to her family.
5. She can’t cook, hates cleaning, and doesn’t care for the great outdoors.
6. She charges forward, and never waits for help. This can be good, but also gets her in trouble.
7. She’s had a difficult childhood. In Medieval times, children had games and such, but survival, especially amongst non-nobility, was key. For Biedeluue, it definitely defined her, but she doesn’t dwell on it.
8. She had to do something in her past to protect her sister. How far would you go? If your younger sibling was threatened how far would you go?
9. The story is a series, but can absolutely be read as a standalone. Why? If I’m reading a story and I don’t get a beginning middle and a HEA, I am piqued. So, the story’s complete.
10. She’s absolutely smashed when she meets the hero and stares at his ‘blue, blue eyes. So many eyes when the rest of them had two. Unfair!’
