Lee Hunt wrote Bed of Rose and Thorns. Ezra couldn't bear seeing the Queen in pain. He had murdered the prince of Erle, which caused the Queen to banish him eleven years ago. He resided where Lady Kristen offered him a place to stay. Ezra was an Elysian Bell. Rachel, Lady Kristen's daughter, fell in love with Ezra. Her long blonde hair kept on reminding Ezra of every moment he spent with the Queen as this was seductively luring him to want Rachel. This made Ezra always wear his armor to contain his feelings. Whenever Ezra chimed, his chiming lured the women around him—causing them to lust after him. He tried to control himself, but these women only made things worse. When Lady Kristen asked Ezra to be her "Senechal," she informed him that his banishment had been rescinded. Now, Ezra would take a journey to the Queendom with Pontes. His love for the Queen seemed to permeate his heart. He is the only one who could protect the Queen from her enemies.

From the onset, I could tell that this book was going to take me to a world of ecstasy and fantasy. This science fiction has a mix of romance, revealing how much a man can go for love. The book is made up of different themes. There is a lot to learn about love, kindness, and war. The intense romance in the novel kept the story going. The poems also added more rhyme to the book.

It appears that Ezra was a man of great principles. He talked about speaking the truth when necessary. Ezra tells what prevented him from the pain of his banishment by the Queen, which I think it's one principle to guide the heart.

I admire how Ezra portrayed the Queen and stated why he loves her. There is a lot of reality to Ezra's words about a leader. All scrutinize a leader, and no one understands the pain and restless nights a leader undergoes. The sacrifices you made seem not appreciated and recognized. But daily, a leader is being scorned by the people she leads.

I love the high suspense in the book. Each time Ezra takes a step to see the Queen, he is stopped by an incident. Sometimes, he doesn't get to see her in time. As I read, this lures me to find out if Ezra will eventually be able to see the Queen or not.

I think Ezra's reply to the Queen when she asked him why he loved her was all it takes to appreciate a relationship. He confessed his last secret, which was about understanding. This his last secret, I assume, is the bedrock of friendship also. I also love the author's style of writing. The book centers on Queendom. The "Knights" were women. This makes this book worth my time. There was absolutely nothing I disliked in this book.

I found a few errors while reading. The book seems professionally edited. I would gladly rate Bed of Rose and Thorns by Lee Hunt 4 out of 4 stars. I would love to recommend this book to lovers of romance novels with a mix of science fiction. Since adult content was strong, I would request younger readers to walk away from this book.

The story of Bed of Rose and Thorns is alluring, where it pictures the scenes that occur amongst those who reign a kingdom and conflicts among the highnesses. The fantasy will surely make us stick to the book till the end, and I cannot deny that I can't wait to add this book to my wishlist. Thank you for the review.

I am glad to see a fantasy novel with strong women as the central characters. A queendom is very interesting to me. I hope that Ezra can express his feelings adequately.

From the cover art of the book, and it's genre belonging to Sci-Fi, I envisioned the book to be about wars and conflict. I'm not exactly saying that I'm disappointed about the story focus being on a romance, though, and really, the title "Bed Of Rose And Thorn" was telling.

Romance books aren't exactly my taste for the moment, but I'm enthralled by the scenes you've weaved in your review. The universe in which the story takes place seems interesting as well. I'm genuinely compelled to give this book a shot later. Thank you for the review!

I'm not sure about this novel because of its strong romance element, which is not my kind of stuff, otherwise, it seems like an engaging fantasy story. Thank you for your great review!
