Blog Tour: Heroes and Hearts by Noemi Betancourt

Fantasy Romance
Date Published: November 24, 2012_by BookRix GmbH & Co. KG
 (Book 2 is set to release on May 3rd, at the end of the tour)

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?

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

My Review: 
Noemi Bentacourt has created a Romantic Fantasy full of action. This one definitely kept my attention, I devoured it in only 2 sittings. (Had to go pick up the kids from school ).

I love the fact that Isabel travels to a new world and she doesn't start off there. The detail was so well done, I felt like I was experiencing everything through her. 

The development of the Romance was steady and believable, which I absolutely loved! I am definitely a fan of these two together. I like that each of them are used to things one way and are having to learn how to go outside their element. 

Can't wait for the next book, which is out in just 2 more weeks! 

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.
