Warrior's Cross by Madeleine Urban, Abigail Roux

I've had Warrior's Cross in my TBR since August of 2009, when it was released. It took me all this time before I read it and, of course, I'm now kicking myself.
MAN, this is one enthralling, fascinating and amazing book.

I really enjoy stories of intrigue and suspense; throw in a romance that's hot enough to cause 3rd degree burns but is also touching and, yes, I'll say it, even tender and, for me, you've got a book that I will go back to again and again. 
I was basically hooked when I read the description, but I in no way envisioned the power and the immensity of the story.  I'm still feeling the effects of a book that not only wins over the reader's heart, but the mind as well. 

Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux are an astounding writing team and frankly, I feel  as though they write with one mind; it's that incredibly of a piece.

Would I love to see more of Cameron and Julian? In a heartbeat!

Cameron Jacobs is an open book. He considers himself a common waiter with normal friends, boring hobbies, harmless dogs, and nothing even resembling a secret... except a crush on a tall, dark, devastatingly handsome man who dines alone at his restaurant on Tuesday nights. All it takes is one passionate night with Julian Cross to turn Cameron’s world on its head.

Julian's love and devotion are all Cameron could have hoped for and more. But when his ordinary life meets and clashes with Julian's extraordinary lifestyle, Cameron discovers that trust and fear can go hand in hand, and love is just a step away from danger.


  1. This one had me in tears a few times. My only complaint is that I wanted just a little more substance (or maybe detail or maybe time) at the ending.

  2. I think that's partly why I'd like more of Cameron and Julian; I'd love to see them more settled. Hmmm, maybe a short story or something... some kind of holiday tie-up.

    Have you read Dawn Kimberly Johnson's Broken? Wow.. now that one is another heartbreaker / amazing romance. And she's had a Christmas short that took them past the end of the story.
    I really liked it: Breaking the Christmas Biscuit I think it was called. Part of Dreamspinner's Mistletoe Madness.

  3. Oh yeah, Broken had me crying, too. Me = mushpot.

    I didn't know about the short, though! thanks for the heads up.
