Happy 2020 Fellow Bloggers,
What better way to kick off the new year than being apart of another book blog tour hosted by JustReads. This time around, I had the chance to read On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White which is book number two to The Codebreaker Series. Normally, I don’t usually read any themes that involve historical romance but somehow this series makes me want to read more. I’m excited to take part of another opportunity and highly recommend adding this to your TBR pile!

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.
I’m not going to give away too many spoilers but this book and entire series has been wonderful. You may recall hearing the name Phillip Camden in the previous book The Number of Love where aside from being Drake Elton’s good friend (Both him and Margot DeWhile provide a cameo appearance in this book) while earning the nickname “Black Heart.” On Wings of Devotion goes deep into Major Camden’s background where sometimes its best to not judge a book by its cover. We also meet Arabelle Denler, a beloved nurse whose father is an avid explorer and sees in the good in everybody. Their worlds collide in the most unexpected fashion: Her ex-fiancé having an affair (without her knowledge) along with an incoming child with Camden’s sister Cassandra. One of things I love about Arabelle is being a strong-will independent woman where even though, he fiancé broke her heart in unexpected fashion she still managed to somehow to overcome the obstacle and supported Cassandra. The book also dives into Camden and Arabelle’s first meeting where at first he was just being her escort but as the story progress, Camden truly cares about her because after her engagement ended, he didn’t want her to end up with a money-grubbing man but she sees another side of Camden the public doesn’t see. We also see another character from Camden’s past and her name is Diellza Mettler (whose lover Alwin Weber knows Camden from his early years). This entire book will make you laugh, cry, and swoon that you will want to read it over again.
