Release Day Review: Erik the Tempered by Denali Day

Series: Dokiri Brides #2
Genre: Fantasy Romance

She never thought to find love. He never thought to keep it.

Sold to whoremasters by her own husband, Tysha flees into the night with pursuers hot on her trail. For once in her life, the gods show mercy and deliver her to Erik the Tempered, a man as wild as he is noble. With him, Tysha’s long-dormant heart awakens, helplessly drawn to the quiet, enigmatic man who seems content to keep his distance.

Obligated to choose a bride for himself, Erik has spent weeks in half-hearted pursuit of a woman. Any woman will do, so long as he can easily say goodbye. However, fate brings him an unexpected bride, as nervous as she is lovely. With each passing day, Erik realizes his timid bride conceals the heart of a lion and finds it harder to turn from her sweet touch and haunting green eyes. But loving her comes with a great price: his family, his home, his purpose.

Soon Erik and Tysha will discover both the reward and cost of unconditional love.

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

In this book we focus on Erik, the brother of Hollen who was the main character in the first book of this series. He is a silent and thoughtful man and finds himself with a bride when he gets injured while protecting her. Tysha is timid but a very hardworking and strong woman. Her self-esteem has been beaten down by her husband, who because of a debt sells her to a brothel. I loved that she fought back and saved herself from that horrible place. Erik was at the right place at the right time and got injured while he was trying to protect her from a pack of wolves.

Tysha was very courageous and even though she came across as an obedient wife, she still had that fire inside of her that needed to be sparked. She was able to find herself in the right environment where she could blossom and figure out what she really wanted in life. Erik was a great partner and even though he distanced himself from her because of a secret that was haunting him, he still was very patient and sweet with her. They were just perfect for each other, and I loved seeing Tysha grow so much in this book. She overcame so many hardships and at the end became a fearless warrior. This book was romantic, action-packed, and emotional at times. I already look forward to the next book in this series.

About the Author:

When Denali Day was trying to figure out “what to be when she grew up” she noticed all her written stories featured a scene where the beautiful heroine patched up the wounds of a gallant hero. So she decided to become a nurse. Twelve years and two degrees later, she realized all she ever really wanted was to be a writer.

Now she lives in the midwest with her adoring husband, a real life gallant hero, and their two wicked goblins (children). When she isn’t writing she’s reading and when she’s not doing either of those things she’s probably plundering the fridge for something she can smother in whipped cream.
