Title: Armored Hearts
Series: Armored Hearts #1
By: Pauline Creeden & Melissa Turner Lee
Published: May 20th, 2013 by AltWit Press, approx. 247 pages

When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales.
Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park and left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair.
Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.


 My review

A very nice surprise indeed...

4.5 magical stars!

Hotness factor: my favorite line "You'd propose, just like any man. Marry her. Make her miserable, and send her home to America with her title." it!

 I usually don't read YA but I have to say that I can't remember the last time I read historical, fantasy YA. It was so original and so well written, a real delight!
I received a copy of this novel as a giveaway win so when I found out they were having a review tour I signed up. The length was perfect for a nice satisfying read. I kept laughing at Tristan's thoughts on women which were pretty much the ones of the times. Just silly being creatures and thinking might be bad for us! I loved it... We proved them wrong, didn't we...
I won't say much about the plot to avoid spoilers but I highly recommend it. It covered action, romance, mystery, fantasy. I can't wait to read the second installment :)

Author Info


In simple language, Pauline Creeden breaks down Biblical stories and applies them to real life in new ways. Her methods of teaching have brought new light to old scriptures. In her fiction, she creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long.

Pauline is horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy.

She is the Admin for Spirit Filled Kindle and an administrator for Readers' Realm. Her articles, reviews, and devotionals have been featured in RUBY FOR WOMEN Magazine,Devotionals for Bloggers, Faith Filled Family Magazine, and Christian Fiction Book Reviews.

One of Pauline's short stories has won the CCW Short Story contest. Other short stories have been published in Fear & Trembling Magazine, Obsidian River and Avenir Eclectia. An urban fantasy short will appear in The Book of Sylvari: An Anthology of Elves from Port Yonder Press, and a vampire short will appear in Monsters! from Diminished Media Group.
