HistoricalQuiz

 

If you choose mostly As … then you are as sparkling and resourceful as Her Serene Royal Highness Dagmar from The Truth About Leo by Katie MacAlister. Dagmar may have been raised in a strictly formal manner, but she’s never let that stop her from pursuing anything that catches her interest. She’s a bit quirky, marches to her own drummer, and has a fine, fine appreciation of the manly form.

TheTruthAboutLeo

If you choose mostly Bs … then you are clearly the stuff a baroness is made of, much like Millicent, from The Traitor. Milly is sweet, fierce, determined, and brave but slow to trust. Sebastian, Baron St. Clair, is ALSO sweet, fierce, determined and brave, and relentless when it comes to protecting those he cares for. Alas for both Sebastian and Milly, an enemy stalks them who is not sweet. By the time Milly is done with Sebastian’s enemies, they are not very brave either. So if you chose mostly B’s, the bad guys better steer mighty clear of you!

TheTraitor

If you choose mostly Cs … then you are equipped to be a master spy like Jane Bonde from Love and Let Spy by Shana Galen. Jane is smart, cunning, and loyal, but she has her weaknesses too. Her latest weakness goes by the name Dominic Griffyn. Planning a wedding and defeating a villain intent upon the destruction of England is tricky, but if you’re the sort who multitasks easily, then you too have Jane’s unique skills and panache.

MY THOUGHTS:

18310162THROUGH THE DEEP WATERS by Kim Vogel Sawyer is another exciting Christian Historical Fiction set in 1883 Chicago, Illinois and Florence, Kansas.

“A past filled with shame can be washed away with a love that conquers all” (from the back cover)

From a Chicago brothel, to a hotel chambermaid in Kansas, Dinah may just find the forgiveness she so seeks and the love she never thought to find.

An excellent tale of redemption, faith, healing, forgiveness and love. Written with the right mixture of romance, and emotional drama, and faith. Ms. Sawyer has once again written a tale that will capture any readers’ heart and hold their interest from beginning to end.  The characters are enticing, engaging, and intriguing. The storyline is very interesting, as well as will hold your heart and thoughts. A unique take on redemption, grace, mercy and the power of God’s love and forgiveness. Emotional and compelling, I enjoyed watching Dinah go from shame to learning to accept a gift she so desperately needed and finding the love to turn her world around. A must read! Ms. Sawyer never  fails to deliver a most powerful and merciful tale! Highly recommend! Received for an honest review from the publisher.

Rating: 4.5

DESIRED: CLUB SIN on Goodreads

 

Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey are sure to love Desired, USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy’s latest seductive, electrifying novel of Club Sin, where fantasy becomes reality.

Kyler Morgan, Master at the legendary Club Sin in Las Vegas, knows how to give women what they want—too well. He hasn’t had a real challenge in a long time. Then Ella Snow enters his life. Beautiful, inhibited, and innocent in the ways of submission and domination, Ella is the new blood he’s been lusting after. Soon, the thrill of training her to embrace his world brings forth desires Kyler cannot control.

After ending an abusive relationship, Ella makes a promise to herself to start living life to the fullest. It’s one of the reasons she seeks out Club Sin. Here, Kyler’s every touch is a lesson in liberation, stirring passions that have no bounds. But as she falls under Kyler’s command, Ella discovers that some secrets are so dark they must come to light. Submission alone may not be enough to save her, leaving her Master with only one question: How can he help Ella heal while unlocking the deep pleasures she craves?
