What I Loved:
The main characters, Phillip and Arabelle had such depth. I felt like they were real people. They had wonderful backstory and enough details to really enjoy and connect with each of them. Arabelle was a strong female lead with a deep spiritual belief system and Phillip is a wounded man that you can’t help but love.
How I Felt:
The religion in this book was very prominent. Sometimes books will have a little of it here or there, but this book created some characters that were incredibly religious, and it made for a wonderful Christian romance.
The story line of On Wings of Devotion was absolutely enchanting! There were little twists and turns in the story that made this a beautifully written book. I loved the change that Phillip goes through in this book. Taking a very negative persona and changing to a positive was a lot of fun to read.
This is my first book by Roseanna M. White, but I understand that there were characters throughout this story were from her other books, so regular readers of her books will really enjoy these cameos! Not knowing these characters, as this was my first book by her, did not in any way impede my enjoyment of the story though, so new readers, do not worry!
To Read or Not To Read:
Christian romance readers will really enjoy this story. Additionally, if you are already a reader of Roseanna M. White’s books, you absolutely need to pick this one up!!
Against Every Warning, She’s Drawn Ever Closer to the Man Known as “Black Heart”
All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monster–a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But he would have preferred to die that day with his men rather than be recruited to the Admiralty’s codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved.
As nurse Arabelle Denler observes the so-dubbed “Black Heart,” she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their families and paths twist together unexpectedly, she realizes she has a role to play in his healing–and some of her own to do as well.
With Camden’s court-martial looming, an old acquaintance shows up, intent on using him in a plot that sends the codebreakers of Room 40 into a frenzy. With their fragile hopes for the future in the cross hairs, Arabelle and Camden must hold on to hope–and to each other–if they want to survive.
