[Review] The Reluctant Amazon

The last thing Rebecca Massee expects on her wedding day is to go from jilted kindergarten teacher to Amazonian Earth warrior. But when she causes an earthquake after her groom says I don’t, she discovers that not only does she possess incredible powers, she is one of four lost chosen sisters who must fight to keep humanity safe from rogue gods and demons. Luckily she has help: ruggedly handsome Scottish warrior Artair MacKay, her protector and teacher.

An immortal, Artair has trained countless warriors for more than four hundred years. He understands Rebecca’s confusion at the new world she’s been thrust into and worries she is too emotionally vulnerable, but that doesn’t stop his growing feelings for the beautiful and fearless woman. 

When an evil force threatens to destroy the Amazons, Rebecca must claim her full powers--but they come at a cost. Can she sacrifice the man she loves if it means saving the world?


I loved the general storyline of the book. A woman finds out she has incredible powers after being rejected on her wedding day and must master her powers. 

Rebecca was a pretty cool character. She was not perfect and had a lot of doubts about her new-found position as a warrior. I loved the bond she develops between her fellow Amazons. The other amazons were pretty awesome and I loved how they have their own elements. 

Her relationship with Artair was a bit fast and had an insta- love feel to it, of which I am not a fan. He grew on me, due to his hotness, but they really needed to develop more before professing their love and the like. I liked the forbidden romance aspect of the novel, though. 

The villains were pretty bad, so I was happy about that. It led to some really entertaining fight scenes. Although the action and myth were second to Artair and Rebecca's attractions. 

I would definitely recommend it to romance readers who love aspects of myth and magic and fans of hot Scottish warriors and kick- butt heroines.
