Always the One was another great book by Tara Randel. I mostly listen to audio books these days so when I actually read a book it has to be able to keep my attention. This book kept me happily wanting to read more.

Derrick and Hannah were the main characters and both told the story. They had fallen in love when they were growing up and were separated just before they eloped as teenagers. The main story took place 17 years after Hannah had been taken with her parents into hiding. Derrick was in the FBI and finally found Hannah after all those years, but she wasn’t happy to be found. Derrick discovered that she was in a serious relationship with another man.

Throughout the story I continued to feel terrible for Hannah and what she had gone through and how her life had to change drastically. It was also hard to see Derrick go through the emotionally pain of trying to get her back in his life. Along with the sweet romance there was a little bit of mystery which I enjoyed.

Always the One by Tara Randel was a clean contemporary adult romance full of the ups and downs of love. If you enjoy books full of past love pushing its way back to the present then you will adore this read.

Always

(The Lost Princesses #0.5)

By Jody Hedlund

Christian YA Historical Romance

Paperback & ebook, 136 Pages

August 13th 2019 by Northern Lights Press

A fierce elite guard. A loyal lady in waiting. They must work together to save three princesses from certain death.

On the verge of dying after giving birth to twins, the queen of Mercia pleads with Lady Felicia to save her infant daughters. With the castle overrun by King Ethelwulf’s invading army, Lady Felicia vows to do whatever she can to take the newborn princesses and their three-year old sister to safety, even though it means sacrificing everything she holds dear, possibly her own life.

Gravely wounded in battle and knowing all is lost to his enemy, the king of Mercia tasks Lance, one of his fiercest elite guards, to protect his family along with keys to an ancient treasure. As Lance makes plans to sneak the princesses out of the capital city, he doesn’t need or want Lady Felicia’s help.

With the dark enemy in pursuit, Lance and Felicia must put aside their differences to outrun King Ethelwulf and prevent him from killing the princesses. In a desperate attempt to hide the young girls, Lance and Felicia agree to a marriage of convenience, a decision that will change their lives—and hearts—forever.

I LOVED this book! I was taken to another world full of danger and watched the main characters’ become stronger physically and emotionally.

Felicia and Lance had never met until they are pushed together. When the Queen was dying from giving birth to her twins she asked Felicia to take her baby daughters to safety. Felicia can’t believe that the Queen has chosen her for such a responsibility. Lance is asked by the dying King to protect his daughters as well.

Lance and Felicia learn about their own personal weaknesses as they try to work together. They go through heartbreaking events. The trials they go through bring them to prayer and give them strength.

Always by Jody Hedlund was an incredible adventure and romance. It was a fast passed novella that begins The Lost Princesses trilogy. Always left me wanting to read all of this Heart-filled Christian Teen Romance series!

(The Lost Princesses #1)

By Jody Hedlund

Christian YA Historical

Paperback & ebook, 222 Pages

August 27th 2019 by Northern Lights Press

An ancient key. A secret treasure. And a princess destined to use them both to fight evil and restore peace.

Raised by a noble family, Lady Adelaide has always known she’s an orphan. Little does she realize she’s one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne…until a visitor arrives at her family estate, reveals her birthright as queen, and thrusts her into a quest for the throne whether she’s ready or not.

Unable to tolerate King Ethelwulf’s cruelty and lawlessness, Christopher Langley left Mercia years earlier, training a group of rebels in neighboring Norland. When he returns home after his mother’s death, he discovers that not only is Adelaide all grown up, but she’s also the rightful queen of Mercia.

When King Ethelwulf discovers Adelaide’s location, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and the key she holds to the ancient treasure. Christopher is just as determined to protect Adelaide so she can lead the growing rebellion. When feelings ignite between the two old friends, forces threaten to destroy their love and rip them apart forever.

Incredible! I loved this teen historical fiction with romance and adventure! I went straight from reading the novella to this first book in the trilogy.

Adelaide grew up with a family that took her in after her parents died. She knew they weren’t related, but they had told people around them that she was their niece. She grew up with 3 boy “cousins.” I loved how Adelaide had had a crush on her older “cousin” Christopher. She knew they weren’t related so she let herself dream of marrying him. Christopher had always thought of Adelaide as his little friend until he saw how she’d grown up to be a strong and beautiful woman.

It had been way to long since I’d read a teen fiction with adventures! Evermore by Jody Hedlund took me away into a historical fiction where the characters went through trials and felt strengthened through prayer. I loved this YA Christian Fiction! I plan to read the next two books as soon as they are released!
