The Baron's Blunder by Susan Baganz

The Baron’s Blunder is the novella prequel to the Rose Hill Regency Romances. I loved this story! The Baron, Charles Percy, saves Lady Henrietta Allendale and her aunt from a ruffian. He spends his time escaping the clutches of women determined to capture a wealthy gentleman. But what is it about Henrietta that draws him?

Henrietta Allendale has no desire to wed as well. But when she and Charles are caught together and must wed, will they find they have more in common than they thought? The verbal sparring between Charles Percy and Henrietta is delightful and kept me turning the pages. I never knew what they were going to say next.

To find a love most true, base it on God’s word. Can Charles prove his love to Henrietta? Is Charles the one God has chosen for her? This is a must read Christian regency romance. You won’t be disappointed. A wonderful start to a great series.

Unbound Hope by Joy Ohagwu

Unbound Hope, another great story by Joy Ohagwu, is the second in the Pleasant Hearts Christian suspense series. The characters draw you into the story. The suspense keeps you turning the pages. Erica Heart, flight attendant, is fighting her past, literally. When Erica’s past becomes her present, she can trust no one but God. Can Jim earn her trust and love?

Jim Denison, a US Marshall, has set his sights on Erica, but she is holding him at arm’s length. Can he win her heart? He feels God is moving in a different direction, but will it line up with what is happening in Erica’s life?

To follow the characters’ stories, it is better to read the stories in order, but not necessary to follow this story. This is a great suspense, a story about God’s love and faithfulness, and how to follow what God has planned for our lives, even when we can’t see where He’s leading.
