Review & Giveaway: Arabella Dreams by Nancy M. Bell

Arabella Dreams
by Nancy M. Bell


GENRE: Fantasy Romance



Arabella Angarrick is heartbroken. Exiled from her beloved Cornwall, she must come to terms with life on the Canadian prairies and her arranged marriage to D’Arcy Rowan. She struggles to reconcile herself to life on a remote ranch with a man she barely knows. He knows he’s getting a two for one deal and Bella is thankful he is happy to welcome her unborn child into his home. D’Arcy is a kind man, but try as she might, Bella just can’t bring herself to love him. Her heart still yearns for Vear Du, the father of her baby. Will she ever stop dreaming of the selkie?

My Review:

It 's a fantasy exciting, original and very romantic
Arabella has lost the love of her life. A love story between a mortal and a selkie can't work. The only thing left to her is the child she is carrying. But she has to think about his future so she decides to make a marriage of convenience, far away from her home, in Canada.
It's the second book in the series, I recommend reading the series in order for a smoother and more pleasant reading
This was a fun and enjoyable read. The plot was well woven and all the characters were interesting, with an adorable heroine, strong and stubborn.
I recommend it to those who want to read a fantasy different from usual



“Hallo, I’m Arabella,” she greeted the man lying on the bed. At least he was fully clothed. Surely he didn’t expect her to anticipate the wedding the first night she arrived. She hid her trembling hands in the folds of her skirt.

“Hello, Arabella. As you know, I’m D’Arcy Rowan. Welcome to my home.” He stretched out a large callused hand toward her.

Bella moved closer to the bed and placed her smaller hand in his. The huge paw engulfed hers in a firm but surprisingly gently grip. “Pleased to meet you,” she said awkwardly. What did one say to the man who had basically purchased you sight unseen to be his wife. Bella was at a loss to find the proper words.

“Pull that chair over and sit down, Arabella. I think there are things we need to get straight between us.”

He seemed very formal, almost distant. She did as he asked and settled on the chair by the bedside. Bella folded her hands in her lap and waited for him to say whatever it was he wanted her to know. She was hardly in a position to make any demands, and she wasn’t familiar enough with the situation to even know what questions to ask. While she waited she surveyed the man from behind lower lashes. He was tall and broad shouldered, the long legs almost sticking over the end of the bed. Dark hair stuck up as if he had run his fingers through it while a wayward piece fell over his forehead.
