BLURB: When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales. Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park, left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair. Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.

About the Authors:

 PAULINE CREEDEN

In simple language, Pauline Creeden creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long. 


Pauline is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. 

Armored Hearts, her joint effort with author Melissa Turner Lee, has been a #1 Bestseller in Christian Fantasy and been awarded the Crowned Heart for Excellence by InDtale Magazine. Her debut novel, Sanctuary is scheduled for release September 30, 2013, and has already been nominated for two awards in YA Science Fiction.

One of Pauline's short stories has won the CCW Short Story contest. Other short stories have been published in Fear & Trembling Magazine, Obsidian River and Avenir Eclectia. An urban fantasy short will appear in The Book of Sylvari: An Anthology of Elves from Port Yonder Press, and a vampire short will appear in Monsters! from Diminished Media Group.

MELISSA TURNER LEE
I'm a stay-at-home mom of three of the CRAZIEST boys ever. And I love them to bits. I'm also a wife to a wonderful man I met when I was 17. He went to a different High School than I did but we both worked at McDonald's. It was before texting and cell phones so we'd write notes at school and exchange them at work. We'd also talk to each other over the drive-thru headsets. Then he told me he had a picture he had drawn for art class long before he knew me that his cousin pointed out looked just like me. The picture went missing when we got married and moved into our first home together. This was kind of the inspiration for The Earth Painter.
I have a degree in Journalism and Marketing which I have never used because I've been home with my boys. Then one day my man sent me to the local book store for a day to myself. I picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and my life changed. I remembered being 17. I remembered falling in love. But most of all I remembered ME. I'd become "Mommy" and forgotten all about Melissa, the girl who dreamed of being a writer, but suddenly I remembered and the writing started. And It hasn't stopped.

 REVIEW
Tristen Gareth Smyth appears to  be such a moron most of the time.  Sure he doesn't want any pity for being crippled. He is so bitter and he does so to keep people away from him.  The real reason is he carries a secret that only his aunt is to know.  What is that secret he carries?  He keeps up that wall, never letting anyone in, that is, until Jessamine enters his life.  He has to figure out how to keep Jessamine at arms length and not let Jessamine find out the secret. Will his life take a turn for the better? I liked how Gareth grows and finds out that no matter what he does, Jessamine helps and wants him.  She is pretty, rich and isn't afraid to be who she is.
I had trouble keeping my focus on the story with Gareth being such a pain, Once I got past that, I turned those pages quite quick. There were some surprises and a lot of magic.  I haven't read a lot of steampunk, but I enjoyed this book.  It was a little more on the fairy side or at least I thought so.I loved the magic and promise the author wrote about.  Ms. Creeden wrote a book that lets the reader enter a fantasy world of steampunk with a hint of magic.

I would recommend this book to anyone who believes in a little fantasy, a little magic, a little fairy and a touch of romance,  There you have it all.

I was given a complimentary copy of ARMORED HEARTS from the authors, Pauline Creeden and Melissa Turner Lee for my own opinion. No other compensation took place.

 QUOTES FROM BOOK

“You put up this steel armor around yourself in the form of hostility and disinterest—whichever works to shield you best at the moment, but that’s not who you are.” 

“You are a man with secrets...and I plan to know them all.”
