For Love or Honor

by Sarah M. Eden

Seriously, how many times can I say how much I adore Sarah M. Eden? Simply put: I haven’t read a bad one by her yet!

This time, we get a bit of Regency PTSD. This is long before there was a name for it and the men had to just move forward with no help. Their wives, or the women in their lives, had no idea what they were dealing with and nobody spoke of it. I can’t even imagine. I am really glad that she decided to write on this topic!

Sarah continues on with the saga of Jonquil brothers that we all know and love. This time, the focus is on Captain Stanley Jonquil. Of course you are going to love the characters. They are always written with depth and wonderful character. Make sure you pick up a copy of this great read!!!

Thanks so much for this great book in exchange for my thoughts. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!

An Uncommon Courtship

by Kristi Ann Hunter

The latest book in The Hawthorne House series is here! woot woot! We’ve had a chance to read both of his sister’s stories and now it is Trent’s turn. Squeee!

Ok, thoughts? Loved it, of course. I know that it’s the publisher that makes the covers, but HOLY MOLY her covers are beautiful. That is, honestly, half of the battle right there. I could go on about how her characters are always entertaining, well rounded and lovable, but I especially love how they are deep. They really love God and these books are not just just clean or overall “religious”. They have true and deep relationships with God that are obvious throughout. I LOVE THAT!

Adelaide and Trent are married in an effort to protect her reputation since they were trapped alone together. As they muddle through their awkward marriage, I often times want to smack Trent in the head for being such a guy. ha! As they work through their after-marriage courtship, you will find yourself rooting for them and falling more in love with the Hawthorne family.

Pick it up! It’s a great read (but grab the others too! Link is in pics).

Thanks for this great read in exchange for my thoughts. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!

A Love Like Ours

by Becky Wade

I love books that deal with real, dark and deep issues. In A Love Like Ours, Becky deals with the tough issues of PTSD, single parenthood and a terminally ill family member. She doesn’t pull any punches, but really puts them out there. There are real relationships with God and that is another thing that is often times glazed over.

Jake Porter has come home from serving in Iraq where he was injured and saw the death of those he was close to. Lyndie, his childhood best friend, has come to work for him exercising his thoroughbred race horses. While there, she senses that God is calling her to a deeper issue than horses. She knows that God wants to use her to help Jake heal.

Absolutely loved it. The writing was wonderful, the characters were loveable, and the story held my attention. The only thing that I did not like was the idea of a girl saving someone that doesn’t believe in God. I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to be in a relationship, or physical with someone that is not on the same page. Especially when it’s the idea of changing or healing him. As a novel, it was fantastic. As a true to life, I would say almost never. Still, the book was really great! Becky is a truly gifted writer!! 5 Stars!

Thank you, Litfuse, for giving me this awesome book! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
