PNR Pick of the Week

Warprize (Chronicles of the Warlands)Chronicles of Warlands
I'm unsure whether to classify these books under Fantasy Romance or PNR. But I either way, this is one very good story and one of the best romances I've read. A very fast-engaging read, and a must for any PNR lover.

The first three books follow Xylara, daughter of the Warrior King, Xyron. With her father dead and her incompetent half-brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to the warring Firelanders. Before she was old enough for a marriage-of-alliance, Xylara was trained as a healer. But not only her countrymen are wounded, and Xylara's conscience won't let Firelander warriors die when she can do something to save them. She never expects that these deeds, done in good faith, would lead to the handsome and mysterious Firelander Warlord demanding her in exchange for a cease-fire.  The 2nd & 4th book are a bit on the weak side, but enjoyable nonetheless.  The fourth book is set within the same world, but focuses on supporting characters from the trilogy.
