Bee Among The Clover

Bee Among The Clover - Fae Sutherland, Marguerite Labbe The writing is fluid and this story starts out very promisingly. However, I became increasingly annoyed at Aron, who is whinny, bad tempered, selfish and seems also rather dim. I could not cheer at all for the romance between Aron and Roman because I disliked Aron so much and just couldn't understand what Roman saw in him. I mean, here you already have a virile powerful warrior king and you instead choose a sullen and thoughtless peasant?

I loved Wulfgar. Was rooting for him the whole time. The scenes where he dominated Aron and Roman were the best ones in the book for me.

I think I might have given this book 4 stars just for Wulfgar, but then there appeared a super-obvious and completely extraneous deus ex machina a literal one! where a goddess shows up and sorts them out to wrap this up and I had to drop another star.
