The Iron Tiara by Beth Flynn – Release Blitz & Review



Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman are from two completely different worlds.Anthony’s the leader of a motorcycle gang that terrorizes Florida’s West Coast. As a child, he ran away from his family and the Cherokee Indian Reservation to enter a life of crime. As an adult, he leads a multifaceted life managing his two businesses—his legitimate landscaping venture, and his loan shark and underworld dealings. Driven by anger and betrayal, Anthony begins the hunt for Christy’s father, Van Chapman, after he runs out on a loan.

Christy’s privileged life is not as it seems. She has kept painful family secrets and hidden some of her own. She’s determined to find out the truth and expose Van, but her search delivers her right into Anthony Bear’s hands, adding kidnapping to his list of crimes

Their worlds are as contrasting as the color of their skin. The only thing they seem to have in common is their mutual disdain for Van Chapman…and each other.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

The Iron Tiara is a spin-off novel from The Minutes Trilogy. It can be read as a standalone, and does not contain a cliffhanger.

Yet again, Beth has delivered us a fantastic and very unique story. The Iron Tiara was everything I hoped it would be and I loved being returned to the world she so beautifully created for us.  You can’t help but be transfixed by Beth’s words, the way her stories evolve and the journey it takes you on through the years and you are left wanting more, so much more.

Anthony Bear and heiress, Christy Chapman grew up in completely different worlds and are a very unlikely couple. Having caught little glimpses of them throughout the Nine Minutes trilogy it was great to find out their story, to go back to the start and see how they met.

Anthony was a fighter in every sense of the word from a very young age. He grew up on the streets, moving from place to place and a life of crime was almost inevitable. He trusted few and now a “successful” criminal, he has fought his way to the top, a thoroughly intimidating and ruthless alpha male, that nobody in their right mind would cross. That is until Van Chapman …..

There was certainly more to Christy then first meets the eye. On face value, she is the privileged heiress but actually that couldn’t be further from the truth. She is incredibly feisty, opinionated but also has her own demons and a past that haunts her. Threatened by over 6 feet of alpha male Indian, Christy did what she does best and fights back but this time she does not get what she wants and finds herself kidnapped as a way to entice her father to pay the huge debt he owes to Anthony.

From the start there is something between them, simmering under the surface. Each of them has pre-judged the other, made there own assumptions and for there own reasons, neither wants a relationship. Like magnets they are drawn together, the spark between them is intense but after so long are either of them able to let down the walls they have built up and allow the other in.

It was great to see much loved characters, Grizz and Ginny and see them and parts of the previous trilogy weaved effortlessly into this story. Beth’s writing is meticulous, detailed and you can’t help but lose yourself in her words as they completely consume you right to the very last turn of the page. Well done Beth, I absolutely loved it
