Book Description:

A fall and crash
A violent journey through the doorways of time
A villain or hero in the making
Rosemary Mayfield teeters on the brink of ruin. With the murder of her parents she is left the sole guardian of her younger brother and sister. Once a wealthy socialite in New York City, she now finds herself stranded in the untamed wilderness of the American West. When a wounded man comes crashing through her roof, as rough as the savage land, it is against her better judgment to bring him into her home and her heart. But she soon discovers he holds a secret that shatters everything, and she must make a choice, unaware that often destiny hinges on a single moment.
Fresh from an unsavory past and a violent fall through time, Nicolas Ekkridon awakens to find himself cared for by three orphans ignorant of the role he played in their parents’ untimely death. They accept and embrace him, and a lifetime of hardened barriers begin to crumble. On the precipice between good and evil, only Rosemary and her spirited defiance stands between him and villainy. But time and space are against them. As its weaving tentacles envelop them in an indifferent grasp, they are swept into a shattering series of circumstances that threaten the very makeup of their lives. But when time can be bent, nothing is written in stone.

*I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.*

I'm very excited to be able to write a review for this book because I have read a few other books in the series by May Nicole Abbey. The other companion books have been really great and The Villain is no exception. 

The Villain deals with time travel, adventure, suspense, and clean romance. All these aspects work so well together and provide a very fun and interesting read. The characters are pretty awesome as well. 

Rosemary is nineteen and the sole guardian of her two younger siblings after her parents are murdered. Rosemary and her siblings end up making their way to a town in the west where their family was meant to be living. 

Rosemary is such a strong character! She has to take care of two children by herself and she is so young as well. She doesn't know everything about providing for a family but she does her best and doesn't give up. She puts on a brave face and takes care of her siblings as best as she can. I loved watching her grow as a character and seeing how mature she was by the end of the book! 

Rosemary's siblings are wonderful as well! I loved the relationship that the three of them had and watching how they all got along. Each kid was unique and interesting. Then we have Nicolas who as a definite mystery for most of the book. The siblings weren't too sure what to make of him but he proved to be a great character. He was definitely tough and impatient at times but he was also caring and helpful. I enjoyed watching his character grow as well and reading about the relationship between him and the siblings, especially Rosemary. :) 

The setting was very fun and the whole plot was interesting as well. There really weren't any dull moments and there were some exciting moments filled with action. Some old friends can be seen in the book which was exciting as well! 

The Villain was such an enjoyable and quick read! Great for fans of clean romance, interesting settings, and action! I'm very interested to see what these sisters come up with next. I know that I'll definitely pick it up! :) Make sure to check out the rest of the series if you haven't already. 

I gave this book 5 hearts out of 5 hearts!
