Review & Spotlight | Heart of War by CL Foster @CLFoster1

Title: Heart of War 
(Lady & Knight Chronicles #1)
Author:  CL Foster


The Hundred Years War rages around Adalira Mortimer's life and country, but she is not what is expected of a Lady; instead of dresses and tea, she dreams about weapons and war.

Bastian Kyros is not typical royalty. Being a warrior is in his blood, not paperwork and peace-keeping.

Tradition drives their families. She is expected to don her manners and win a worthy husband, and he is expected to drop his sword and do what's right for the sake of his family's name, land, and future.

Their chance meeting at the party of the season may offer them both the chance to find what they desire. Brought together by their longing for battle, their greatest fight may be in winning over their families and conquering their own pride.

A lull in battle does not mean there is peace. The greatest of wars are fought in the heart.


I fell in love with this book and the story the author wove.  My imagination took flight and the characters came alive. I especially loved Adalira's self confidence and independence.

When Bastian is introduced in the story I really wanted to fall in love with him, it wasn't till later on that I did fall and I fell hard.  He just has this character about him that even if he rubs you the wrong way he gets under your skin.

The author kept my interest and kept me hanging on to every word as this love story came to a close.  I wanted nothing more than to pick up book two right away!  <3

CL is eclectic, geeky, positive, nature-loving and completely non-"normal" (just the way she likes to be). She has been a fan of literature since she was a small child and finally decided to take her dreams (both waking and sleeping!) and do something positive with them.

CL has lived all over the world and has a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice, minoring in Psychology and Forensics. Which means you don't want to cross her because she knows how and where to hide a body so it's never found! She proudly admits to hearing voices in her head, but at times, her characters' impromptu visits can be rude and annoying. Thankfully, she has adequate patience for their shenanigans and can out ninja them any day of the week.

CL's voice is boisterous, sassy, and not finished yet! Stay tuned!
