    Nothing feels quite so romantic as traveling back in time when knights had honor and would brave anything for king and country. And the women? Few were as gentile and fragile as we would like to believe. When a Norman knight is promised the hand of a Saxon lady as part of his reward, they both have misgivings, he for failing to keep a promise, she for detesting the thought of belonging to a countryman of her brother’s killer. Duty is duty and both are prepared to do whatever they must. But Ala [...]

    Vikki’s MusingsWhile the title, Snow in July, did not entice me, the book description did, so I decided to give this a read. I love novel set in the medieval period, especially ones involving the Battle of Hastings. I became immediately engaged since the book’s opening scene is in the midst of that battle. I love it when a book drops me in the middle of action right away.Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre is a troubled man. While he wants to serve his king, he does not feel he is worthy of the [...]

    I enjoyed reading this historical romance book. Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre has seen a lot and been through some rather ugly battles for his king. He has his demons of having issues with not protecting his brothers like he should have, even though it was not his fault. He is given a request from the king that he marry a certain girl and receives the estate, because of his bravery and honor for the king. Most men would be delighted to receive a bride and and land, but he is not your normal k [...]

    I picked this book because it was classified as YA medieval paranormal romance, all of them my favourite genres. I agree with the medieval romance aspect and the paranormal to a tiny bit but I would never call it YA though. I am not sure which part made them think it's suitable for YA. It might be suitable for them but not wholly acceptable for them. Aside from that, I have no complaints with the book. I loved the story and the characters. Alain was not what I expected. I was thinking that he wo [...]

    How could one not love this novel by Kim Iverson Headlee? Snow in July has everything a reader could want, Romance, Intrigue, History, Magic, and most of all (for us Arthurian lovers) a knight in shining armor! The story is set during the Normans and Saxons, which in itself, the history is a character that parallels the novel. In the midst of everything, our star-crossed lovers have to overcome thievery, beasts, and dangerous sorcery, however the biggest obstacle of all is their intense feelings [...]

    The author has a way with her writing that will pull her readers into the story that she has created. I completely fell in love with this from the beginning. The plot was very believable and descriptive to know what was going on. I really enjoyed the characters especially Kendra and Alain. I mean how would you feel after being forced into a marriage and finding out the things she did about the man you were going to marry. I think she took it a lot better than I would. However, when dangers start [...]

    *I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.This is a great read! As you start the story you are instantly pulled into a new time period, and the whole ourse of the story you are aware of it and you can feel how it would have been.Kendra and Alian are characters that you can really get behind and I love the dynamic between the two of them throughout.The story progresses at first without her really knowing who he is, as he is there scoping out the territory.her HA! She feels like she [...]

    Four stars because the paranormal in the story became a bit much. Lady Kendra as a natural healer is fascinating but the bad guy being a shape-shifter was more than the story needed. Ulfric was terrible just as a human being.The characters were very well written. I thought Kendra's grief for her brother was a bit selfish, and melodramatic. She seemed to thrive on grieving for her brother.Sir Robert and his friend are very engaging from the start of their subterfuge to becoming part of Kendra's f [...]

    Received a complimentary copy of the book to read and review.I must admit first and foremost that I don’t usually read historical romance but this one was an exception. When I read the blurb for it I knew I had to. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it. It’s a real page turner. It has some great twists and turns. It will appeal to all readers who love a good book. I love the world and the characters that Kim created with this one. The plot is great. I highly recommend it be adde [...]

    I loved this book. The characters and the plot sucked me right in. Kendra and Alian have a attraction from their very first meeting. I think the author does a great job of setting and keeping to the time period. I really liked how you knew that even though you were reading everything in English the book made sure you knew they were speaking other languages. Faith, Love , Loyalty are all tested, can Kendra keep her promise to her dying brother? I was sad to leave there story behind.

    Imaginative Dreams Review: Absolute Must Read! This book was very good. Nothing like I expected it to be. I would recommend it to those who loves to have their selves pulled in immediately. It is for those who want something they absolutely CAN NOT put down. I loved it from beginning to end and will make plans to re-read as soon as I get the chance.

    A novel that began life as a collaborative effort last millennium is available at long last! The other writer, a dear friend of mine, had to bow out for personal reasons, but she gave me her blessing to finish our fun little tale, and this is the memorable result.I hope you enjoy my first foray into the realm of historical paranormal romance!Stories make us greater,Kim Headlee

    Cathy Henderson
    My first supernatural romance and I was impressed. The characters are well developed. Snow in July was a poignant love story. The plot took some twists and turns which kept you wanting to read more to see if Kendra would find (and keep) her true love. The reference to the white and red roses and their recurring theme brought consistent threads to the tale. Recommend it!

    A direct descendent of 20th century Russian nobility and married with a descendent of the 7th-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia… my mind was hooked by Kim Iverson Headlee, long before reading her first book.When I had the chance to read Snow in July, the hook became a powerful harpoon. I felt this from the very first moment and while starting to read the book, I realized that it would unfold deeper and deeper. The author possesses the gift to keep you locked in with her [...]

    I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review and rated it 4 out of 5 stars.An Anglophile since childhood, I jumped at the chance to read and review Snow in July by Kim Iverson Headlee because of the historical period and setting. Set in the 11th Century, during the battle of Hastings, Ms. Headlee’s story is filled with knights, ladies, battle scenes, magic, and political upheaval. If you’re a fan of Medieval history and romance, then this [...]

    Is it selfish to want happiness when one is called to fulfilled their duty? What of the emotions and doubts one bears? Are they ignored for the sake of duty? Or are they acted on?Kendra and Alain are both grieving, she for her brother and he for a broken promise. Obligation has already bound them together. Fulfillment has yet to take place. Deception keeps them from really knowing one another and could, in the end, bring about more pain than happiness. But if it helps Alain get to know his soon- [...]

    Longtime fans of my work know that I love playing with legends, and in that regard Snow in July is no different. In addition to mentioning the local tradition that associates King Arthur with Glastonbury—though his alleged grave would not be discovered at the abbey for another century beyond the lifetimes of Kendra and Alain—I adapt the legend that the wounded King Harold Godwinson survived the Battle of Hastings and lived out his remaining days as a one-eyed monk.The primary liberties I too [...]

    Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.Alain is given and English estate as reward for helping William win at Hastings. He is also given the daughter of the Thane of the estate as his bride. Kendra doesn't want to amrry anyone, much less a Norman, the same race of man who murdered her brother.But darker forces are at work, and Alain and Kendra are thrown together then forced apart. And those Kendra trusted, betray her.Historical romance is not usually my thing, but I said yes [...]

    Again I am surprised by how much I like one of Headlee's novels. She always manages to take a story that I'm not sure I could be interested in and brings me into a world of multifaceted characters and detailed scenery. I'm constantly left with a feeling that I want to BE in the time/place that are the settings of her stories. I have never liked the time of lords and ladies, knights and kings so well as I do when immersed in her worlds. Well-developed characters in Alain and Kendra truly carry th [...]

    This book is about Alain, also known as Sir Robert Alain de Bellencombre knight of Normandy. The book is set right after the Battle of Hastings. The other main character is Kendra, Lady Kendra of Edgarburh. Both have lost their brother through the recent fighting and they are on opposite sides of the conflict, at least they seem to be. The King of England in an effort to restore peace has decreed marriages between his loyal knights and local Ladies and noblewomen in an effort to bring everyone t [...]

    I won this in a giveawayThe novel is mostly historical fiction with the right amount of [realistic] romance and a touch of magic that makes it something more.Sir Robert Alain is from Norman. His mentor and friend is Sir Ruaud. King William has developed a treaty with the Waldrons of Edgarburh (Saxons) where Waldron's daughter Kendra is to marry Sir Robert.Ruaud and Robert (Alain) are also sent to look for vagrants in Waldron's area.

    Julia Damatto
    I love medieval romance, and especially when we have a knight in shining armor full of guilt and a very strong minded lady, I adore when our main characters try to put their beliefs and obligations before their true feelings, the constant battle, that only leads to love, full of honor, family loyalty, do's and don'ts, betrayal and war. Imagine all that in an accurate historical moment, and you have Snow In July. Oh, wait! I forgot, there's also a little of paranormal!! The Author give us a story [...]
