A Bridge to a Troll's Heart by Lee Colgin

What started out as two men becoming friends turned into them becoming so much more in A Bridge to a Troll's Heart.

From the blurb:

Everyone knows a proper troll must never leave his post. Arlo is thrilled to have his own bridge to
guard, though it’s a lonely job. A troll should enjoy being alone, but Arlo has never been very good at being a troll. He longs for companionship, and guards his secret as closely as he guards his bridge.

Toby, a cheerful wolf shifter, serves as a messenger between villages. When his route is suddenly blocked by a fearsome troll, he must charm his way across the bridge. Little does he know, he’s charming his way into Arlo’s heart as well. But Toby has his own secrets he dare not reveal.

As the seasons fly by and the holidays approach, their friendship flourishes into something more. But can Toby risk his heart for a troll bound so tight to duty? Will Arlo leave his bridge for love?

A Bridge to a Troll's Heart is a gay fantasy romance featuring an adorable lonely troll and the sweet wolf shifter who falls for him. Tropes include grumpy/sunshine, friends to lovers, found family, slow burn, and hurt/comfort. Sappily ever after guaranteed!

This book was previously published as A Bridge to Love by Lee Colgin. It's been lightly revised and re-edited with the epilogue that was previously available to newsletter subscribers included in the main body of the novel. Happy reading!

Angel's Review:

Toby never expected to fall for a bridge troll. What started out as a tentative friendship slowly developed into something more beautiful, something more romantic. 

Toby is cheerful, kind, caring, and thoughtful. He does get ahead of himself sometimes though, don't we all? He, like Arlo, has a hard time accepting himself as is. He can't shift freely like the other members of his pack, he sees himself as something being wrong when there isn't anything wrong with him. Just like Toby and his family finally showed Arlo what family is and how they care - Arlo showed Toby how to love himself as is. No matter if he can shift whenever Toby thinks it.  

Arlo is such a cute character, he's sheepish and shy- but tries so hard to be gruff and scary. He fails, desperately, but that's okay. He can be his own version of himself, and throughout the book he learns to accept and acknowledge that. 

I really loved this book. I read it in about an hour. I just could not put it down. Excellent, excellent, background detail! Phenomenal characters and I love Toby's cousins. Toby's whole family treated Arlo with love and kindness, and it was so sweet. I loved the pacing, the detail, the storyline. I'm in love!
I really appreciated Lee writing about the care Arlo puts into taking care of his bridge. I really enjoyed reading about that and how passionate he was about his duty to protect the bridge. This book was so original, creative and thoughtful. I've never read anything like it before. 

 I'm definitely going to be rereading this soon for sure! 

I highly recommend reading this book. Get your copy now!!
