Details: Any couple can play the starring roles in these novels – as hero or heroine – how cool is that? With dozens of books and eBooks set in exotic locations around the world, there’s something for everyone (even vampire, detective, golf and historical fiction). Your Novel‘s authors blend action and romance to produce fun, campy books for a one-of-a-kind gift or keepsake.
Personal Experience: I was provided with a complimentary copy of A Ren Faire to Remember to facilitate this review. They have over 40 titles to choose from, so there is something for every couple. Each title comes in mild or wild versions.
A Ren Faire to Remember is a personalized tale, where the starring couple embark on an outing to London to attend the largest Renaissance Faire in the world. They find London alluring but are most excited about attending the colorful Ren Faire.
Dressing in period costumes, our couple encounter others wearing the vivid, intricate garb of knights, maidens, kings, queens, jesters, wizards, princesses, falconers, minstrels and more. Jousting tournaments, musical performances, and food booths provide continuous entertainment, and in the extravaganza the hero and heroine meet a mysterious stranger who is desperate for help.
Taking them into his confidence, he transports them to a medieval, mythical land where brave knights serve a legendary king. To help their new-found friend and to get back home themselves, they must complete a fantastic quest, traveling through dark forests, into dank caves, up lofty green hills, and finally to an ancient plain where pillars of stone hold mystical powers and provide a battle ground to resolve their predicament. Magic, intelligence, perseverance, pride, evil, virtue, jealousy, daring and especially love all mix to truly make this a Ren Faire to remember.
I have already reviewed for Your Novel once before and it was a great experience, so I was really excited when they asked me to review their latest title. It’s probably not a surprise that my husband and I enjoy fantasy, dragons, and ren faires! A Ren Faire to Remember sounded like it was right up our alley. I chose the mild version this time.
I enjoyed this title even more than the last. The fantasy aspect of this title had greater appeal to me, because it is one of my favorite genres and the story line was very interesting. I got lost in the story. Having the personal details of my husband and I woven into the book made the fantasy more engaging and complete. It’s amazing how much easier it is to lose yourself in a story when it’s your own names on the page.
The mild version of the book included just a few gentle kisses and suggestions of something to come. For me, this is perfect. I’m really not a person that gets into the overly romantic stories. I mentioned in my previous review that the love scenes made me giggle because it was hard to imagine my husband saying or doing some of it. In this version, it was much more realistic and in keeping with his personality. It made the book feel even more like a story of us.
I continue to think that YourNovel books are a very original idea and very well executed. A Your Novel romance would be a thoughtful and fun gift for your spouse or that special someone. I also think they would provide you with a unique gift idea for a bridal shower, wedding, or anniversary. Perfect for that couple that already has everything else!
The paperback without photo that I received sells for $49.95. I do think this is a touch over-priced, but it does come with a lot of personalization throughout the entire story and each book must be printed and bound just for you.
Pros: Unique, personal, and fun. Great gift idea for a significant other or a lucky couple. High level of personalization. Fun stories. Available in ebook, paperback, and hardcover versions.
Cons: The price is a bit high and jumps up $25 just with the addition of a photo, but they do offer ebook options that would be easier on those of us with a tight budget.
