    The Warrior and The Champion are completely unrelated and do not need to be read in order I thought both were pretty good.This is a historical paranormal romance There is a friendly ghost that gives it just a dash of paranormal Some of the scenes were funny Simone is followed around by the ghost of her little brother Only she can see and talk to him and that s why others believe her to be mad Simone has a horrible father who, pretty much, sells her to Nicholas to be his wife Nick re The Warrior and The Champion are completely unrelated and do not need to be read in order I thought both were pretty good.This is a historical paranormal romance There is a friendly ghost that gives it just a dash of paranormal Some of the scenes were funny Simone is followed around by the ghost of her little brother Only she can see and talk to him and that s why others believe her to be mad Simone has a horrible father who, pretty much, sells her to Nicholas to be his wife Nick resents her because he was forced to marry herI liked how he communicated with the ghost It took him awhile, but he findly became a likeable character.Good read

    C est en lisant ce second tome que je me suis rendue compte quel point j avais aim le 1 vu que a remontait quelques temps d j En effet tout y est bon, la romance, le c t surnaturel parfois un petit peu tir par les cheveux certes mais apr s tout, why not , le c t dramatique de l histoire qui vous rend le coeur gros pour les perso , les coup d tat et le suspense, un livre lire au coin du feu avec une bonne tasse de chocolat chaud et un plaid douillet.que du bonheur
