Before I Called You Mine by Nicole Deese

After many matchmaking schemes gone wrong, there’s only one goal Lauren is committed to now—the one that will make her a mother. But to satisfy the adoption agency’s requirements, she must remain single, which proves to be a problem when Joshua appears. With an impossible decision looming, she will have to choose between the two deepest desires of her heart.

My Review:

There is a lot of heart and soul poured into this book delivering lots of emotions and heartbreaks. The story seems realistic as if Nicole is telling her own life story. In the end the story pulls together nicely along with likeable and characters you will remember after the story.

More Than We Remember by Christina Suzann Nelson

After a life-altering car accident, one night changes everything for three women. As their lives intersect, they can no longer dwell in the memory of who they’ve been. Can they rise from the wreck of the worst moments of their lives to become who they were meant to be?

My Review:

This book brought out all the emotions in me from crying one minute to laughing the next minute. The 3 different point of views from the women characters and the mystery of the story line had me hooked right off the bat. The book definitely shows us that life isn’t always fair and we must accept that sometimes.

The Runaway Bride by Jody Hedlund

Arabella Lawrence fled on a bride ship wearing the scars of past mistakes. Now in British Columbia, two men vying for her hand disagree on how the natives should be treated during a smallpox outbreak. Intent on helping a girl abandoned by her tribe, will Arabella have the wisdom to make the right decision, or will seeking what’s right cost her everything?

My Review:

If you enjoy historical stories this book is for you. This is the second book in the series so if you haven’t read the first book go back and read it. While this is about a woman getting forced into marriage there are other twists and turns throughout the book that you will enjoy!

The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch

He’s doing what he can to save the Prince Regent’s life . . . but can he save his new marriage as well?

Evan Eldridge never meant to be a war hero–he just wanted to fight Napoleon for the future of his country. And he certainly didn’t think that saving the life of a peer would mean being made the Earl of Whitelock. But when the life you save is dear to the Prince Regent, things can change in a hurry.

Now Evan has a new title, a manor house in shambles, and a stranger for a bride, all thrust upon him by a grateful ruler. What he doesn’t have are all his memories. Traumatized as a result of his wounds and bravery on the battlefield, Evan knows there’s something he can’t quite remember. It’s important, dangerous–and if he doesn’t recall it in time, will jeopardize not only his marriage but someone’s very life.

My Review:

I love the romantic side to this book that makes the story so much more satisfying to read. I was drawn to the characters in the story and felt like I knew them as I read it. The love and secrets between the 2 characters kept me reading and the descriptive words made me feel like I was there. Such a good book to read!
