The Breaking Season by K.A. Linde-Release Blitz

Release Date: July 21

A sexy arranged marriage romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I signed on the dotted line. A marriage contract to seal my union with the devil.

I thought I knew what I was doing. His money and name were mine for the taking. But Camden Percy always gets exactly what he wants. And what he wants is me—my body, my obedience, my surrender.

He wants to break me.

But I’m Katherine Van Pelt. I’ll never break. I’ll never beg. I’ll never give in.

Except I promised him one more thing—a baby. A Percy heir.

There’s no way out of this one. Either I comply or lose everything. Do I risk the husband I’m just learning to love or is this my breaking season?

Camden and Katherine have been the interesting couple in the background of a lot of these stories, and I admit I was not sure I was going to be all that engaged in their story, as both of them have not been the most likable characters of these stories. And, let's be honest, saying it's tough to like these 2 is being kind to both of them, as there have been some redeeming qualities, but they are few and far between. And, I can't lie, I have loved them as the villains in the story...but as the hero and heroine of their own story?

But, I love the author, and I was not going to skip one of these books as I have enjoyed all of the others, so I was excited to see where it was going to go and if Ms. Linde would manage to make me care about these 2 as people.

Well, she did and I was definitely engaged with their story and even found myself drawn to both of the characters as we got to know each of them, what's important to them, and why they each agreed to the arranged marriage. There are definitely some tough moments in the book as you get to know both of them, you do start to feel sorry for them, and understand them. But at least in my opinion, the characters don't really ever apologize for the things they did...it's more that they are sorry for where things ended up, and feel remorse...but you get the impression that they did what they did to survive and they would do it again if they thought their own survival was on the line.

I loved that the author didn't turn the villains into the heroes, that she let them be flawed and within their faults allowed them to find the person who knew the bad and loved them anyway. And, isn't that the most human thing of all?

There's also a part, a subplot if you will, of this that I thought was really handled well. I am not going to spoil it here, not what it is or why I thought it was handled well, but I can say as someone with no personal experience with the issue, it snuck up on me. Not in the same way that it did the character involved, but the way it was handled was definitely a tiny "huh" moment for me, but in the best possible way.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
