The Sound of Silver by Rachelle Rea Cover Reveal

Steadfast Love Book 1 Available October 15

The stalwart saint and the redeemed rebel. One is fighting for faith, the other for honor…

After Dirk rescues Gwyneth from the Iconoclastic Fury, she discovers that faith is sometimes fragile—and hope is not as easy as it may seem. Gwyneth continues her quest to learn more about the love of God preached by Protestants she once distrusted.

Meanwhile, Dirk’s quest is to prevent his sullied name from staining hers. Will his choice to protect her prove the undoing of her first faltering steps toward a Father God? Once separated, will Dirk and Gwyneth’s searching hearts ever sing the same song?

Steadfast Love Book 1

The Sound of Diamonds Back

Her only chance of getting home is trusting the man she hates.

With the protestant Elizabeth on the throne of England and her family in shambles, Catholic maiden Gwyneth seeks refuge in the Low Countries of Holland, hoping to soothe her aching soul. But when the Iconoclastic Fury descends and bloodshed overtakes her haven, she has no choice but to trust the rogue who arrives, promising to see her safely home to her uncle's castle. She doesn't dare to trust him...and yet doesn't dare to refuse her one chance to preserve her own life and those of the nuns she rescues from the burning convent.

Dirk Godfrey is determined to restore his honor at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk knows he has only one chance at redemption, and it lies with the lovely Gwyneth, who hates him for the crimes she thinks he committed. He must see her to safety, prove to the world that he is innocent, prove that her poor eyesight is not the only thing that has blinded her but what is he to do when those goals clash?

The home Gwyneth knew is not what she once thought. When a dark secret and a twisted plot for power collide in a castle masquerading as a haven, the saint and the sinner must either dare to hold to hope...or be overcome.

A Worthy Pursuit by Karen Witemeyer

A TEACHER ON THE RUN. A BOUNTY HUNTER IN PURSUIT. CAN TWO ENEMIES LEARN TO TRUST EACH OTHER BEFORE THEY BOTH LOSE WHAT THEY HOLD MOST DEAR?

Stone Hammon is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts.

Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them. 

When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim? 

Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What a fun book. It had adventure, romance and even a bit of mystery. The book was full of surprises. I loved how Stone didn't jump to conclusions but watched and made his decisions based on facts. Charlotte was much the same. She acted properly while being careful and still putting the protection of her child above all else. The children were a great addition to the book. I loved what made each one special. The characters were very well developed. I had a hard time putting the book down. I was adopted so these kinds of stories grab me. I wanted to find out what happened next and how things were going to go when the real "bad guy" showed up, because there always has to be one, right? Actually, there are a few of them, but two main ones. I recommend this to anyone who loves an adventure and sweet romance.
