Book Two in the Crowns Legacy series.
They can only experience beauty if they dare to behold it…

Now that Princess Eunice of Diachona has come of age, she has much more to study, and a new weight sits on her compassionate shoulders. Her late mother was an admirable ruler, but Eunice can hardly see herself thriving in the political arena. In fact, she doesn’t think many people see her at all, especially not would-be suitors who often bypass quiet Eunice to pursue ladies they find more attractive.
So when Eunice meets a serious, gifted artist who expresses his desire for her company, she isn’t sure if his interest in her is romantic or simply artistic. And why does this young man seem to be as saddened by Eunice as he is drawn to her?

My thoughts:

This book was rolling along, seemed your average romance brewing between a princess and an artist who wasn’t worthy of her and then bam! Three-fourths of the way through Juwells drops a bomb I NEVER saw coming. It actually made me want to go back and reread the book with this new perspective.

I can’t say, or even hint, too much at what the revelation is but it would be something a Christian might struggle with. I even played mental gymnastics with this revelation and did some research this morning on what is revealed. It was an interesting situation that I can’t even imagine dealing with or the heartache people who deal with this issue must face.

I have read a few of Nadine’s book and have enjoyed them all. They are a bit different and that is what makes them interesting. Not to mention, this was a quick read.

Grab your copy at Amazon or your favorite retailer.

A copy of this book was given to me by the author. All opinions are my own.
