Stars-5
I really enjoyed this story and the characters! Fiora is the princess who truly is warrior that will stand up to bullies. She is picking suitors as well as proving she can be a strong leader. Matheas will do anything for Fiora, and he means so much to Fiora. This story spins a world of love, honor, destiny, the unknown, and fighting for what you want. It is a great new series by Betty Shreffler that I cannot wait to read more of it.

Betty Shreffer is becoming one of my favorite authors to read; every one of her books just pulls me in and leaves me wanting more. Claimed Royalty was an amazing forbidden romance with a side of great steamy moments. To me this was a different take on a royal story, instead of the guy trying to find a queen; we have a princess. Fiora is looking to become Queen but first, she has to go through trials to prove that she is strong, brave and a quick thinker, all along with finding her King. One major problem she doesn’t want any of the royals children, she only has eyes for childhood friend/Arms Man, Matheas.

So many good/bad things happened in this book that I don’t want to spoil them. I can’t wait for Twice Claimed I have to know what is going to happen next.

Claimed Royalty by Betty Shreffler is the first book in the Crowned and Claimed series. This book is fast paced and intense and will have you hooked from start to finish.
This is an author I normally enjoy and this book did not disappoint. You are drawn to the main characters and their journey, it feels like you go on it with them. Their was a depth and complexity to everything about this book.
As the first book in the series this is a brilliant way to start it. I really cannot wait to see what else is to come.

Claimed Royalty: (Crowned and Claimed Series, Book 1) by Betty Shreffler is a fantasy romance story that is refreshing and new, exciting and sexy, sweet and tempting and it captures you from the very beginning. What a great start to this series. Betty sets a scene and a world that is easily imaginable and descriptive and in my minds eye, majestic. The characters are imagined as being real and whole. This is an adventure and a journey where I was swept away and often on the edges of my seat. In this new world we see a Princess who is proving she is fit to be the next Queen. Where she must choose a suitor to become her King but will it be the man she loves? Will there be heartache on the horizon? Most of the characters I loved and some I hated with a passion, which goes to show how well written they are.

However, there are several big twists, and the proverbial rug was ripped out from under everything I thought was going to happen. Agggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh! now I have to wait for the next book in the series to see what happens.

Claimed Royalty is book one in the Crowned and Claimed series by Betty Shreffler. This author gets to me every time. I get lulled into the story and  stay blissfully immersed until the very last word. I get lost in this style of writing and the clever way the story was delivered was incredible. Fantasy at it’s finest.

The Queen has a dilemma. She has so many suitors, and her heart wants none. Age  honoured tradition forces her to consider these men, while choosing one seems an impossible task. The author takes the reader on an anxious and exciting adventure. One where I fell for the Queen and her strong personality, her love for the taboo, and her tenacity.

Claimed Royalty had it all. Forbidden love, dastardly deeds, secrecy, passion, suspense, and potency. Sinister characters were also at play, keeping the anxiety levels at fever pitch. This author knows how to keep her audience hanging off every word, desperately eager to find out what  is instore for the Queen. But more than one man has captivated her attention. What will happen next? Stay tuned for book two.

A riveting and totally spellbinding story that will hold your attention captive, dazzle you, impress you, and frustrate. All this in one fantastic fantasy. 5 stars.

Betty Shreffler’s Claimed Royalty is the first book in the Crowned and Claimed series. The theme of this story is unique and the author has tackled this in a creative and thrilling way. Fiora, who is the Princess of this story, is torn between duty to her country and following her heart. Reading how this unfolds, I enjoyed the story more by each chapter. Life certainly isn’t easy when tough choices have to be made, including choosing between multiple suitors. Then there is Matheas, Fiora’s bodyguard, who stands out on his own within this story. There is drama, steaming chemistry, suspense and danger throughout this first book of the series which keeps the reader fully engaged. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series knowing how well this story was written. I need to know what happens next!

Betty Shreffler could write a book turds and rainbows and it would still be awesome because she wrote it. Claimed Royalty is no exception. It was hot and the story was so well written. I love the imaginary world she came up with and I love her characters. She has easily become one of my favorite authors. Her ability to tell stories is second to none. The lead is Fiora and she is a strong amazing woman who is an amazing leader. And Matheas who is a major stud. I loved it and can’t wait to read others 5 star rating!

I just finished reading Claimed Royalty: (Crowned and Claimed Series, Book 1), by Betty Shreffler.

Wow, wow, WOW!

I don’t know why I do this but usually I try to picture what the book is like when I read the book description – and I am usually somewhat close – but this one took me by the biggest surprise and I love it!

I am honestly itching to get my hands on the next book in this series!

Princess Fiora is a force to be reckoned with and she has a fire in her soul that I’ve yet to see in another character – ever!

I loved just about every character in this book – obviously some more than others but I could spend the next few weeks reading about them all, if given the chance.

This book was so engaging, refreshing and the storyline was amazing and new!

You will not regret reading this book – trust me!

I’d give it 10 stars if I could!

Wow what a great start to a new series! I loved it. I was pulled in from page one and the author was able to keep my attention throughout the whole book because I couldn’t put it down. This story is about Fiona, the future queen. I loved her. I thought she was beautiful and strong. She is to choose her King to rule by her side but the man she really wants is not a man she should not be with…. because he is forbidden…..Ahh the chemistry! I just love it. I really enjoyed this book and i am looking forward to reading more by this author. I would recommend to a friend!
Happy Reading!

Claimed Royalty by Betty Shreffler is the first book in the Crowned and Claimed series. I was a little hesitant to read this because of the setting but I have read and enjoyed other books by Ms. Shreffler so I thought I would give it a try. It started a little slow for me but I truly think it was me not the book.

Fiora is a warrior literally, she is the heir to the throne of her nation and has to go through quite the gauntlet of challenges to show she is worthy of the throne and impress the suitors there.

As she was going the thr process I found myself going for one guy then one of the others, only to change my mind again. By the time I was at the end I was firmly committed to one of them.

The ending of this installment had me gasping and wondering what is going to happen next. I did look to see when the next one will be released and I have to wait patiently until next month for it to come out.
