Genre: Historical Romance

A Viking Historical Romance

On the eve of her betrothal to a nobleman she’s never met, Rhiannon seeks comfort on the shores of the sea she loves so well. But instead of offering peace to her uneasy heart, the ocean heralds doom with the arrival of dreaded Viking ships. A vicious raid leads to the death of her beloved father and leaves Rhiannon’s life in tatters. Heartbroken, she travels to Ynys Môn, where she takes up residence at the royal court of Owain Gwynedd.

Leif loves voyaging on the open water. As the son of a Viking chief, he’s accustomed to his people’s practice of plundering and looting. But when one of his companions ruthlessly kills an old man in front of the man’s beautiful daughter, Leif is haunted by the memory. Desperate to find forgiveness for the atrocity he allowed to occur, he’s offered a chance at redemption through the kindly teachings of an Irish priest and the unexpected arrival of a royal fugitive. Suddenly thrust into the midst of the Cymry’s political turmoil, Leif is reunited with the dead man’s daughter—Rhiannon. Forced to work side by side to uncover the truth behind the turmoil, they come to discover that love can grow from even the most tragic of beginnings. But with such incompatible backgrounds, surely a future together can never be theirs.

Book Review:

First of all, this cover is stunning and of course the story was amazing! Sian Ann Bessey is a wonderful author and her books are always awesome. I was excited to read this book and it did not disappoint. The Call of the Sea is a Norse Romance and oh so exciting. 

Rhiannon was lovely. She had gone through much, losing her parents and yet she still sought to be kind. Rhiannon was trying to figure out what was going on in her life, she had lost not only her father but her home. Rhiannon was an easy character to read about, she felt relatable. Rhiannon had to learn to forgive those who had harmed her, never knowing that there might be some good in the Vikings. 

Lief was just a wonderful character. I loved his growth and his kindness. He knew that plugging a place was evil so he tried to change and make amends for his mistakes. Lief had to learn to look towards the future, learning from his mistakes in his past. I love how Lief still tried to help others and how he sought to do what was good even when he was trying to figure out what he believed. 

I liked the romance between Rhiannon and Lief. Although they were basically enemies, it did not feel rushed or stilted. Rhiannon had to learn to trust Lief before they could even hope to be friends. The plot was also so interesting and I was engaged in the story the whole time. There was so much going on and I wanted to see how the story was going to end. 

This book had it all, excitement, mystery and romance. The characters were also a lot of fun. I loved reading about the character’s growth. I also love how Bessey was able to weave faith into her book. This was just a stunning story. The Call of the Sea is a thrilling book and it needs to be on your TBR. The Call of the Sea is a clean historical romance. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher through Netgalley. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, a positive review was not required.

Author Interview:

  1. How did you choose the title of the book?
    The hero and the heroine both have a special connection to the sea. “The Call of the Sea” came to me as a way of expressing the emotions they were each feeling.
  2. What made you want to write in this era?
    I love including lesser-known historical events in my books. I grew up in Wales and so setting a book based on an actual event that involved the Vikings in my homeland was exciting.
  3. What kind of research did you have to do to write this book?
    It involved so much research. I did historical research on the Vikings, the Cymry, and the Irish, and specifically on the events that led to the rift between Owain Gwynedd and his brother.
  4. How did you come up with the names of your characters?
    Many of the names are the actual names of the people who lived through this time in history. The other names are names that would have been used in that era by those of the different nationalities.
  5. What was the hardest part of writing this book?
    The research, and meshing the real events with fictional characters.
  6. Did you have a character that you related more to?
    There were aspects of both Rhiannon’s and Lief’s characters that I could relate to. I particularly related to their love of their homelands and their desires to be true to their hearts.
  7. How do you deal with historical accuracy?
    The 1100s was a messy time in history. Historians do not all agree on the details of certain events and much remains unknown. Whenever possible, I read multiple sources to learn about specific events and everyday life. It was fascinating to learn more about this era.

The Danger with Diamonds

About the Book:

The Danger with Diamonds by [Traci Hunter Abramson, Sian Ann Bessey]

Title: The Danger with Diamonds
Series: Falcon Point Suspense #1
Author: Sian Ann Bessey and Traci Hunter Abramson
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Release Date: October 11th, 2022
Genre: Romantic Suspense

When Lars Hendriks arranges to meet Marit Jansen in Vienna, he is hoping their friendship will blossom into romance. What he doesn’t expect is a surprise visit from his cousin Cole or the loose diamonds he brings with him.

As a CIA operative, Cole Bridger is used to uncertainty, but when his work takes him back to Vienna, he looks forward to reconnecting with Isabelle Roberts, the fellow agent he dated briefly before duty took him away from Austria. Unfortunately, his silence over the last few months has created a chasm that he can’t cross without help. He barely takes a step toward repairing the damaged relationship when a brazen jewel heist seemingly links Cole, Lars, Marit, and Isabelle to the crime. The group is drawn into a deadly mystery, and once again, the treasures of Falcon Point are threatened. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they have stumbled upon something far bigger and more dangerous than a simple robbery. And someone on the inside knows it.

Book Review:

Wow! Another amazing book by two awesome authors. The Danger with Diamonds is a companion novel to Heirs of Falcon Point. I was beyond excited to hear that there was going to be another book. I knew that some of the characters still had a story that needed to be told. It was fun to see Lars and Cole again and get to read their story. 

Cole was a CIA Operative. He was used to being undercover and working under pressure but he was not used to courting a girl. It was sweet to read about Cole fighting for Isabelle, but Cole also had to figure out how to find his family’s jewels. Isabelle was so cool. I loved how she was able to handle herself and yet she knew when she needed help. Isabelle was hurt when Cole ghosted her but she was willing to put aside her feelings to get to the bottom of the heist. However, as Cole and Isabelle spent time together, they found themselves falling for each other. 

Lars was a sweetheart. I really liked him. You didn’t get to see much of him in the last book so it was cool to learn more about him. He wasn’t an operative but he wasn’t willing to let his family’s jewels just be taken. It was cool to see Lars step up and fight. Marit was also wonderful. She was one of Lars’ closest friends and it was sweet to read about them falling in love. Marit had to learn to trust Lars and his family especially as things got complicated. Marit and Lars always had a connection but as they interacted, it grew to more. 

It was interesting to read about Cole and Lars and see them falling in love. I loved both of the characters and reading about their romance. They were both unique characters and they made the book fun to read. All of the characters had a part to play that was exciting to see. The characters were likable and I was able to connect with them. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out how this story was going to end. The plot was engaging and I didn’t know what they were going to find out about the bank heist. 

The Danger with Diamonds is a must read! It is an exciting suspenseful romance. I felt as if this was the perfect blind of romance and suspense. I am crossing my fingers that there will be more books to come in this series. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher through Netgalley. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, a positive review was not required.

Author Interview:

  1. Where did you get the idea for this book?

    We really came up with the idea for The Danger with Diamonds while we were still
    working on The Heirs of Falcon Point. Both of us knew that our characters had
    more stories to tell, and it didn’t take long for the basic plot to take shape.
  2. How did you choose the title of the book?

    We offered several title suggestions to our publisher, but Sian came up with this
    one based on the diamonds that are integral to the plot and the danger that
    follows them.
  3. How did you co write this book?

    We wrote together using a Google.doc with the basic idea of what the first couple
    scenes would look like. Then each day Traci would write a scene or two in the
    morning. When Sian woke up (she is in a time zone two hours behind Traci), she
    would then work on her scene. Often when Traci would wake up, Sian would have
    another scene waiting for her. Every 8 to 10 scenes, we would have a zoom call to
    plan out the next portion of the book.
  4. What was the hardest part of writing this book?

    Sian will tell you it was getting Traci to help figure out the bad guy. Traci will tell
    you it was trying to figure out the bad guy. This is what happens when two
    discovery writers come together, and one (Traci) has absolutely no idea what is
    going to happen next.
  5. How much research did you need to do in order to write this book?

    Traci’s CIA background saved us hours of research into the ins-and-outs of law
    enforcement. There were a few times when we felt it necessary to check on
    specific protocols, but for the most part, her knowledge borne of experience was
    our best resource. Having grown up in Wales, Sian’s European upbringing helped
    make our European characters more authentic. We have both visited Vienna, which
    helped us as we decided on locations for various scenes. Our most time-consuming
    research involved uncovering small details like: When does the Christmas Market at Stephansplatz open? Which U-bahn lines run underground? What are the toppings offered at a typical doner stand?
  1. Do you like writing the romance or suspense parts better?

    We both find romantic and suspense scenes challenging to write. The suspense
    build up is not as difficult as a fight scene. And the increase in romantic tension is
    not as difficult as a kissing scene. Given a choice, we’d both avoid writing fight
    scenes and kissing scenes completely if we could.
  2. Where do you get the ideas for your characters?

    The main characters in The Danger with Diamonds originally appeared in Heirs of
    Falcon Point. Lars and Cole are cousins who only recently learned of each other’s
    existence. Neither of them has brothers, and it was really fun to develop a
    brother-like relationship between them. Isabelle and Marit, our primary female
    characters in this book, also had cameo appearances in Heirs of Falcon Point, but
    we really enjoyed fleshing out their characters and allowing their individual
    strengths to shine. Most of our characters are a blending of people we know and
    people we’ve observed over the years.
  3. How do you write relatable characters?

    No one is perfect, including fictional characters, but at their core, our heroes and
    heroines are good people trying to do the right thing. We enjoy using humor to
    endear our characters to readers. We also show our characters making mistakes,
    overcoming difficult things, and trying to improve. Ultimately, when readers finish
    one of our books, we’d like them to feel a bond with the characters and be glad for
    the time they spent with them.

An Unfamiliar Duke

About the Book:

An Unfamiliar Duke (Georgian Gentleman, #4) (Georgian Gentlemen) by [Sian Ann Bessey]

Title: An Unfamiliar Duke
Series: Georgian Gentlemen #4
Author: Sian Ann Bessey
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Release Date: May 16th, 2022
Genre: Historical Romance

At eleven years of age, Rosalind Ainsworth was convinced that Sebastian Lumley, the future Duke of Kelbrook, was the most odious young man she’d ever met. And ten years later, after having had no contact with the nobleman in the intervening time, her opinion of him has not changed. Unfortunately, neither has the marriage contract their fathers signed soon after her birth.

As Rosalind’s twenty-first birthday and the appointed wedding day approaches, Sebastian makes a rare appearance in London. His first meeting with Rosalind since childhood goes less than perfectly, but Sebastian has a compelling reason for honoring their marriage contract—a reason outlined in a document kept behind his workshop’s locked door. 

After a quick wedding, the new couple relocates to Finley Park, where their acquaintanceship slowly blossoms into affection. But when Sebastian’s secretive work threatens their fledgling relationship and Rosalind’s life is placed in jeopardy, Sebastian finds himself forced to choose between the man he has pledged to help and the woman he has come to love. 

Book Review:

One of my most anticipated reads of 2022 and it did not disappoint! An Unfamiliar Duke is the fourth book in Sian Ann Bessey’s Georgian Gentlemen series. This book was simply amazing! It is actually set before the first three books but it was so fun to read!

 Rosalind Ainsworth was such a fun character. I loved her little quirks but also her kindness. Rosalind was an easy character to read about. I felt for her as she tried to navigate her new life. She tried her best to be positive and look for the good. It was definitely interesting to read about Rosalind and fun to get to know her. She was in A Noble Smuggler for a bit but not a whole lot. I adored Rosalind and loved reading her story

Sebastian Lumley, was the future Duke of Kelbrook, and he didn’t know what to do with a wife. Sebastian was also a wonderful character. He was trying his best to be a good husband, but he honestly didn’t know what he was doing. I really liked Sebatian. It was sweet to read about him caring for Rosalind. He didn’t quite like being in large groups of people, but he cared for his staff and for Rosalind. 

I really enjoyed the romance between Sebastian and Rosalind. I liked how they both worked through their marriage. The story was easy to read and engaging. The plot was interesting and I wanted to see what would happen next. 

I loved An Unfamiliar Duke, it was a lovely addition to the series. I would totally recommend it! An Unfamiliar Duke is a clean historical romance, it can be read standalone but it is part of a series. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher through Netgalley. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, a positive review was not required.

An Alleged Rogue

About the Book:

An Alleged Rogue - (Georgian Gentlemen, #3) by [Sian Ann Bessey]

Title: An Alleged Rogue
Series:
Georgian Gentlemen
Author: 
Sian Ann Bessey
Publisher:
Covenant Communications
Release Date: 
November 8, 2021
Genre:
Historical Romance

Lord Adam Dunsbourne is a tyrant. At least, that’s what everyone says. The tales are shocking: accounts of a man who gambled away the family fortune and keeps his younger sister, Emily, captive in their home at Dunsbourne Manor. So when Adam and his sister make an unexpected appearance at a dinner party, the scandalized whispers cannot be contained.

New to the town, Phoebe Hadford hears the condemning rumors and determines to do all she can to help the baron’s oppressed sister. Upon entering Dunsbourne Manor, however, she quickly discovers that all is not what she has been led to believe. 

Adam, though unsure of whether he can trust the intentions of his beautiful neighbor, is quickly drawn in by Phoebe’s genuine nature. But even as his and Phoebe’s connection deepens, a dangerous enemy from his past reemerges. For years, Adam has hunted for the man who betrayed him, not realizing he had only to wait. His foe has returned, and this time, he will threaten everything Adam cherishes most—including the woman he loves.

Book Review:

Another author that I found this year and ended up loving! An Alleged Rogue is the third book in Sian Ann Bessey’s Georgian Gentlemen series. And it was amazing! I read it in one day, I could not put it down! I am loving the whole series and this was just a sweet addition to a great series. 

Lord Dunsbourne was a tyrant or at least that is what everyone believed. He gambled away the family fortune, and he keeps his younger sister, Emily, captive in their own home at Donsbourne Manor. However, when Adam and his sister make an appearance at a dinner party, people begin to talk. New to town, Phoebe Hadford hears of the rumors surrounding the Lord Dunsbourne and determines to help the baron’s sister. But as she spends time at Dunsbourne Manor, she finds all is not as the rumors said. Adam and Phoebe find themselves drawn to each other. When a dangerous enemy from Adam’s past reemerges, Adam finds everything he cherishes threatened including this new woman who changed his life. 

Phoebe was a lot of fun. I liked how kind she was to those around her. She did not allow rumors or appearances to stop her from reaching out to others. Although others warned against it,  Phoebe wanted to get to know Adam’s sister, Emily. I love how Phoebe worked hard. She saw past the outer appearances and tried to make her own decisions about people rather than listening to rumors. 

Adam was a sweetheart! I could tell that he loved his sister, and he wanted to make his parents proud. He was working so hard to give his sister a better life and catch the man who ruined his family. I adored Adam, and I loved getting to know him. He worked hard, and he was willing to do hard work to help his family. However, he was also struggling. He wanted to provide for his sister, but times were tight. He also wanted to avenge his father, but his thirst for revenge may make life difficult for him

It was just so fun to read about Adam and Phoebe working together. They were simply the perfect match. They understood each other. But they had to learn to work through their trust issues and what it meant to fall in love. Adam was not the trusting type, but Phoebe helped him see the good in the world again. Adam helped Phoebe look beyond herself and see the value of people again. 

Adam’s sister, Emily was also sweet and I adored reading about her. She was a lot of fun and she brought life into Adam’s life. She was also a great friend to Phoebe. I hope she gets her own book. Adam’s servants were also sweet and so was Phoebe’s maid. The side characters were lovely. 

I just really loved An Alleged Rogue! I would totally recommend it! It is part of a series but it can be read standalone. An Alleged Rogue is a clean historical romance.

Title: Heirs of Falcon Point
Author: Traci Hunter Abramson, Sian Ann Bessey, Paige Edwards, A. L Sowards
Publisher: Covenant Communications
Release Date: October 11, 2021
Genre: Historical Fiction

In the early days of World War II, the Lang family lost everything. Eighty years later, it’s time to take it back.

The Nazis have taken control of Austria, and wealthy widower Leopold Lang faces a difficult decision: join the ranks of the foreign power that has taken over his homeland or flee with his children to safety. Leopold makes his choice—but too late. His family is ripped apart, never to be reunited. But decades later, fate brings together the descendants of this broken dynasty in the place where it all began—Falcon Point.

Anna, Cole, and Tess have never met, each relying on fractured pieces of information to understand their Austrian heritage. But when unforeseen opportunities draw these Lang cousins to Falcon Point, they soon discover they are not alone in their quest to claim the coveted property and the fabled treasure hidden within. Unfortunately, another claimant, one with a much darker heritage, is determined to eliminate the Lang family once and for all.

Book Review:

I was so excited to read this book especially because some of my favorite authors collaborated to write this lovely book! Heirs of Falcon Point is written by Traci Hunter Abramson, Sian Ann Bessey, Paige Edwards, and A. L. Sowards and it was such an exciting book!

Karl was on the run, he just wanted to protect his family. He and his two sisters, Anna and Ingrid were forced to flee their home but they never expected to be ripped apart by the war, never to be reunited. Anna, Cole and Tess have never met or even known of each other but they are searching for the past that their relatives had told them of. However there are some who don’t wish for the Lang family to find each other or find Falcon Point. Will the descendents of Karl and his sisters, Anna, Cole and Tess, be able to find each other and find their home. Or will those who wish to take the wealth of Falcon Point succeed?

This was such a fun and interesting book to read! There were so many things happening and I was really interested in seeing how it would end! The first person you really follow is Karl and his sisters as they escape their home. Karl was an interesting character to read from, he was loyal to a fault and he wanted to avenge his family. 

I adored all of the characters and I enjoyed reading from their perspectives. They were different characters and yet they were also similar. They each had their own ideas and the way they responded to difficult situations. 

Anna was also fun, I found her conversations with Beckett so sweet. She came to work at Falcon Point and it was sweet to read about letting Beckett back into her heart. I liked how strong and stubborn she was, it was cool. 

Tess wasn’t really searching for her past or to learn more about her heritage, but life had other plans. She was brave and I liked how she didn’t freak out when things got crazy. She was strong but she was also able to lean on her friends. Her romance with Bram was sweet! He was so nice. 

Cole was the “cool” one. It was really interesting to read about him and see how he was different from his cousins. He knew what he was looking for and he also knew how to take care of himself. I also enjoyed reading from his perspective. His side romance was also cute, just not as prominent. 

The whole story was interesting and I was on the edge of my seat reading this book. The bad guy was shockingly good at what he does. But the ending!! I would recommend this book to those who like any books by these authors. I am excited to read more by these authors. Heirs of Falcon Point was a clean, historical suspense romance. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher through Netgalley. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, a positive review was not required.

Sian Ann Bessey was born in Cambridge, England, but grew up on the island of Anglesey off the coast of North Wales. She left her homeland to attend Brigham Young University in Utah, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in communications with a minor in English.

She began her writing career as a college student, publishing several articles in the New Era, Ensign, and Liahona magazines. Since then she has published historical romance and romantic suspense novels, along with a variety of children’s books. She is a USA Today best-selling author, a Foreword Reviews Book of the Year finalist, and a Whitney Award finalist.

Sian and her husband, Kent, are the parents of five children and the grandparents of three beautiful girls and two handsome boys. They currently live in Idaho, and although Sian doesn’t have the opportunity to speak Welsh very often anymore, she can still wrap her tongue around, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch still rolls off her tongue.

Traveling, reading, cooking, and being with her grandchildren are some of her favorite activities.

A. L. Sowards has always been fascinated by the 1940s, but she’s grateful she didn’t live back then. She doesn’t think she could have written a novel on a typewriter, and no one would be able to read her handwriting if she wrote her books out longhand. She does, however, think they had the right idea when they rationed nylon and women went barelegged.

Sowards is the author of multiple historical fiction novels, with settings spanning the globe from the fourteenth to twentieth centuries. Her stories have become Whitney Finalists and won a Whitney Award, reached the number one spot across multiple Amazon categories, received praise from the Historical Novel Society, and been loved by readers from a variety of backgrounds.

She lives with her husband and three children and has called Washington State, Utah, and Alaska home. She enjoys hiking and swimming, usually manages to keep up with the laundry, and loves it when someone else cooks dinner. She doesn’t own a typewriter, but she does own a pair or two of nylons.
