Five-star Book Review of Jody Hedlund’s A Noble Groom, with historical background, my personal reasons for rating this book so highly, and celebrating the historical accuracy in the setting and conflict of this superior Christian Historical Romance novel.
Thank you, readers, for purchasing, recommending, promoting, reviewing, and helping Mail Order Bride Collection: A Timeless Romance Anthology succeed! Because of the support of so many, this title debuted today on the USA Today Best-selling Books List!
When a book and its characters linger in my mind months after I finished reading (or listening), I know it’s a keeper. Deanne Gist grabbed my full attention with FAIR PLAY. I savored every scene and chapter, often wondered where the story would go (a delicious kind of curiosity), and ultimately delivered one of the most satisfactory endings. 5 stars!
BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENT = New Release: Silver Belles and Stetsons, a Cowboy Christmas Anthology with 10 novellas from 10 different authors. My sincere thanks and appreciation to an unknown reader who posted a favorable review on Goodreads for The Drifter’s Proposal, my contribution to the anthology [which released three weeks ago on its own]. My heartfelt appreciation to readers who purchased both the anthology and the single title–simply to show support.
Queen Victoria reigned from age 18 to age 81; June 1837 until her death in 1901. Anything that falls within this time, whether those English-speaking countries were her subjects or not, is referred to as the Victorian Era. The United States definitely had a Victorian Era–and the sheer quantity of significant historical occurrences, inventions, developments, social happenings–is astounding. This overview sheds light on this favored backdrop (Victorian Era American West) for fiction.
