After a couple of week away from writing reviews, I now bring you the review of “Bound to Her Blood Enemy“, written by the brilliant Tora Williams.
This is another book I got thanks to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources. I hope you enjoy this review and that it makes you want to go get the book and read it.
But before my honest review, here is the blurb of the book:
Norman heiress, Matilda Comyn is desperate to escape her grasping guardian and reclaim her inheritance. After a lifetime of being let down by men, she wants to rule her lands on her own terms. She can’t escape without help and battles her mistrust when compelled to join forces with a Welsh spy.
Huw Ap Goronwy has a rival claim to Matilda’s castle and has sworn a blood oath against the Comyns. When his king rules they must marry, he struggles to reconcile his attraction with his need for revenge. But they must form a truce if they are to seize their castle.
Risking capture and death, they will only succeed if Matilda learns to trust, and Huw allows his love for Matilda to overcome his need for revenge.

Most of you that reads my blog and follows my Instagram account may know How much I love Historical Romances. After one amazing Historical Romance I got addicted. And this book just got me so excited.
In “Bound to Her Blood Enemy” we meet Matilda and Huw, and we get to join them through a journey to reclaim a land, Coed Bedwen. Both Matilda and Huw had plans, goals they wanted to accomplish. And from the very first few chapters to the very ending you get invested in the story and on the journey.
What made this book unique for me were the historical aspects. I don’t know much about English history beside some aspects that are world’s history, so reading about Norman, English, Welsh and blood oaths.
I enjoyed the book a lot, from learning about some historical things, to the action, the surprises, the romance… Loved it all! I can’t even pronounce some of those names and towns, but It was so much fun to think of how we do say them.
From the first few page you just know things will get interesting. The past between the families that makes things hard for Matilda and Huw. And then the relationship that starts taking shape while we read the book… the “get to know each other” that we are a part of, because we get to learn more about each character as we read the books.
I should also say that there is action, and some danger, that just kept me intrigued and glued to my phone while I read the book. That’s something I also loved about this book. I got to enjoy it and have fun in a “I can’t put the book down” way.
Strong characters, lovely romance, dangerous plans and a balanced storytelling that just made the all plot much more epic and just like we were watching a movie.
Because of all of those aspects, I totally recommend this book, and I can’t wait to read more books by Tori Williams. She’s amazing!
