This week's featured book is an ebook called Woven Dreams by NJ Walters. This is book 3 in her Tapestry series and is my absolute favorite. I think it's because two of the three main characters are wounded souls who find a new chance at happiness and family.
In the world of Javara, women are scarce. Brothers have to compete for the right to marry a woman and the competition is fierce. The brother who wins the woman's hand not only gets the most nights with her, he gets to claim any children born no matter who fathers them. However, the other brother retains the right to be with the bride one night a week.
Jarmon Bakra was badly injured during a battle with the Craddock clan who sought to steal a Tapestry Bride from the Bakra family's allies, the Garen brothers. Scarred both inside and out, he fears neither he nor his handsome, unscarred twin will ever find a woman who would be willing to be with both of them.
Genny is on the run from her violent past. When the two Bakra brothers come across her on their land and refuse to let her leave unprotected, she claims that the mystical tapestry of Javara brought her to them in the hopes of eventually disappearing. All people know of the Tapestry fashioned by a sorceress to help bring women who can handle the rougher lifestyle of Javara to it.
Because they think Genny is a Tapestry Bride, Jarmon and Garrick begin a quick and sensual assualt on her senses. They think they have only three days to convince Genny to stay with them before the Tapestry reappears and offers her a chance to go home. But the the truth may be more than they can handle, especially Jarmon. Can Jarmon put aside his own tortured past and help save the woman he and his brother loves before she ends up dead at the hands of her violent family? And can Genny find the courage to trust the warriors who have every reason to hate her existence?
Woven Dreams is a beautiful story. I love it and re-read it often. Woven Dreams by NJ Walters is available now from Ellora's Cave. Though it is the third installmant of the series, it can be read as a stand-alone novel. I can not tell you enough how good this book is. NJ Walters is a master storyteller and her books are amazing. You will love Woven Dreams without a doubt.
