Claimed Royalty
By Betty Schreffler
Rated 5 stars

I really was captivated with this story. I picked it up because I enjoy reading this authors stories. She is always able to draw me into the plight of the character and makes the story engaging within the first couple pages. This one was no exception. I was thrilled on how she introduced this large cast to us. It was easy going and one or two at a time. I was easily able to keep track. I enjoyed the story although there was a bit too many sexy times for me. I felt the story was strong enough that it didn’t need quite so much. I was still drawn to the characters and storyline. They were interesting, smart and clever. I loved the trials! It gives a good look into the princess’s strength of character.

While I am not a fan of cliffhangers I don’t really look at this as one. The main story of this book concluded and another line of the story is starting up. So I don’t feel frustration and disappointment like I do with an abrupt shocker of an ending. I just am looking forward to the next part of the story.
March can’t come fast enough!
…..and that cover? Very seductive!

Claimed Royalty is the first book in the Crowned and Claimed series by Betty Shreffler. This is a little different from the other books of hers that I have read. It is a really great romantic fantasy with some sci-fi elements woven through it. It made for a great change of ‘scenery’ and pace for me- throwing me into a wonderful ‘new’ world to explore- and introducing me to a brilliant cast of quirky characters.
Ms. Shreffler once again proves what a great author she is, by transporting me into an exquisitely detailed world which she crafted so masterfully. She builds such incredible imagery- building beautiful landscapes and weaving vividly descriptive and intricately detailed scenes. From walking the palace halls and grounds , to the excitement and action of the ‘trials’, and even horse riding – were so vivid, that I really felt as if I were right there with Fiora and Matheas as their story played out. Everything came to life before my eyes- in a completely immersive and believable way!
There are a lot of characters, lots of detail, and a lot going on- but everything is stitched together quite smoothly and seamlessly- and was very easy to read. This was such a wonderful, romantic, and sizzlingly hot read. I am never disappointed by anything Ms. Shreffler writes, as I am always completely captivated by her stories and unable to put them down.
This story was a wonderful surprise, and while it was a little slow to get going, the pace soon picked up and I really enjoyed the ride!

Thank you, Ms. Shreffler!

Hot mama!! Wowza! I don’t know what I expected when I opened this book. But whatever it was got blown out of the water. Simply put, this was fantastic! Sexy, suspenseful, just the right mix of all of the wonderful stuff I love to read. I lost myself in the pages and was at the end before I realized it. So thankful that this is a series – I cannot wait to get my hands on book 2!!!

Five Stars

Having no choice is depressing. Not being able to love who you want is sickening. Fiora is to be crowned Queen but she has to go through her trials. During those trials there are male suitors she has to pick one as her king. But how do you pick someone to help lead your country when you don’t know him. You don’t know their heart and they don’t know yours? Fiora seems like a strong girl who will make an amazing queen. I so ship her and Matheas. I’m ready for the next book. This story was very interesting because usually it’s the males that inherit no matter if the sister is older. The author presented us with the base for a strong female lead who doesn’t hide behind anyone.

This is the first book in this series, I loved it. I loved that I was pulled into the story right from the beginning and couldn’t put the book down until the last page. This is a story about Fiona, the future queen, she is to chose her king but in order to do that she must complete certain tasks. I love the triangle this author created with the four men but problem is she loves another, who is forbidden. Fiona is an awesome strong character and her chemistry with the men.. A must read story!

5 out of 5 stars

The story Claimed Royalty: (Crowned and Claimed Series, Book 1) by Betty Shreffler is a fantasy romance book. It is a story that drew me in from the very beginning and I found myself lost in its pages. It is a book that includes adventure, royalty, and lots of romance. There are parts of this story that are very steamy and make the temperature in the room rise and you can feel your heart and soul swoon. The book does an amazing job in world building and there is attention given to details. I at times felt like I was right there with the characters. I enjoyed reading about the main character. She is their chosen Queen. There are traditions she must uphold. She is a beautiful and strong woman. She is talented and quick-thinking. She knows that her love of one man is forbidden however her heart can’t let him go. I could feel the inner conflict that she goes through and I don’t envy the emotions/feelings that she is having. This story had my emotions going up and down throughout the whole book. There are other characters that you read about and are introduced to. I enjoyed reading about the part they play in the story and their interactions with the main character. There are also those who are not all they seem to be. They have their own agenda and only work to make their plans succeed. This is the first story in a series and one I would highly recommend reading. I can’t wait for the next book.

In a world where a woman’s purity is the fine line between being Queen and being killed, he was given one duty—to protect my purity and above all, to protect me. Both were a battle we weren’t ready for.
Forced by tradition, and as their chosen Queen, I must endure my trials and the suitor phase, ultimately giving myself to a man from the Royal Houses. Each one competes to be my King, all wanting what no other has had…my purity.
To have what I truly want would risk my entire reign, but to do what is expected of me would destroy my heart. My only protection is to follow through, giving each royal the opportunity to win their prize…me in a bedroom suite and a crown atop their head.
Behind closed doors, I commit my biggest sin, loving a man I’m forbidden to have. When the time comes for me to be crowned, I’ll be forced to make a choice—risk our love or risk my life.
