Ena's Surrender (Prequel to the Borderland Ladies Series) by Madeline Martin
As mentioned this is the prequel to the Borderland Ladies Series, there are five other books in this series and this prequel is certainly enticing enough to make me want to the read the rest. This is the back story of Bran and Ena, siblings supporting each other since their mother's murder.
Ena is our feisty Scottish woman who stirs the heart of Renault, an English spy. Living along the border Ena and Renault are sworn enemies but Ena also harbours a deep revenge as the English killed her mother and older brother.
Ena's surrender is a classic enemies to lovers story which takes place between the unstable and often bloody borders of England and Scotland. This is a quick and powerful novella with a good dose of charm and wit.
I immediately took to Ena's character and I could imagine myself riding to the borders with her. Madeline did a wonderful job of bringing all the characters to life and expressing their emotions.
This novella was a free copy but with no obligation to review. The above is my honest opinion and review.
