Blog Tour: Heroes and Hearts by Noemi Betancourt

Fantasy Romance
Date Published: November 24, 2012_by BookRix GmbH & Co. KG

Isabel Kendra prides herself on being a strong independent woman.  She doesn’t fawn over men, doesn’t swoon and would rather take care of things herself than ask for help.  She has no use for heroes.  So when a dark stranger tells her of a kidnapped child who needs her help she approaches the situation in her usual practical manner.  Of course, with coming across her long lost father and gods and sorceresses who are constantly trying to kill her, Isabel soon realizes she’s out of her element.  Enter the dashing Prince Alaric for whom rescuing the damsel in distress is second nature, only this time the damsel doesn’t want to be rescued!
Together the two must thwart the evil forces that threaten their lives and their worlds while struggling against their own blistering attraction for each other. Can Isabel balance her aversion to the prince’s habit of coming to her rescue with the realization that sometimes it is all right to accept help from a man? Can Alaric handle himself around a woman capable of rescuing herself and learn to be simply the man who loves her?

My Review:
A Quick and Light read in the Fantasy genre! I loved the world that Noemi Betancourt has created! I am a sucker for castles, princes, dragons, adventure, and most of all Romance. I love the fact that the hero in the story was a prince, SWOON. 

The characters are fun and believable. The plot flows quickly and smoothly, definitely kept me flipping pages right to the very end. The detail of the world itself was great, it made me feel like I was there.  Last but not at all least, the Romance was equal parts sweet and steamy. 

This story is short and sweet, but sets up for the series well! 

The Crystal Palace Chronicles Part Two will be released at the end of the tour


Noemi Betancourt has been a lifelong fan of Fantasy, ever since her father introduced her to the works of Tolkien, Baum, and C.S. Lewis as a child. An avid reader, she has since developed her writing style over the years, and after becoming enamored with the Romance genre, Noemi began to blend a guilty pleasure with an old love. Her first novelette, Heroes and Hearts, is the first of many books and stories in which she interlaces the Fantasy and Romance genres.

Noemi lives in a seaside bungalow on Florida’s Sun Coast, indulging in her other passions: cooking, caring for her gallant husband (a disabled vet from the British Isles), and the three fur-babies who rescued them.

Thanks for the review, I just bought the book and signed up for the big giveaway to win the second book and the amazon gift card. So far, I'm really enjoying the book, but I can't wait for the "sweet and steamy" parts! I'm such a Romance addict...

Thanks for the review!

Clara, I'm glad you're enjoying the book and I hope you find the sweet and steamy parts as satisfying as I do:) Descendants of Quendaris, the sequel to Heroes and Hearts, will be available May 3rd.
