Against Every Warning, She’s Drawn
Ever Closer to the Man Known as “Black Heart”
All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monster–a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But he would have preferred to die that day with his men rather than be recruited to the Admiralty’s codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved.
As nurse Arabelle Denler observes the so-dubbed “Black Heart,” she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their families and paths twist together unexpectedly, she realizes she has a role to play in his healing–and some of her own to do as well.
With Camden’s court-martial looming, an old acquaintance shows up, intent on using him in a plot that sends the codebreakers of Room 40 into a frenzy. With their fragile hopes for the future in the cross hairs, Arabelle and Camden must hold on to hope–and to each other–if they want to survive.
Roseanna is by far one of my favorite historical romance writers. I have to read every book to puts out. I always get worried I will be disappointed but I never have been.
Arabelle is a wonderful character, she is kind and puts others ahead of herself, even when something heartbreaking happens to her. Her reaction is beyond what most people would do.
Phillip really is a good guy but something happened to make others think he did a very horrible thing. Ultimately, he is a protector.
Then we are inside another character’s head that we soon find out relates to Phillip. At first I wasn’t sure what this part of the story had to do with the rest, but we don’t have to wonder too long.
Roseanna White fans will be thrilled with this newest release.
