TheSwordandtheSecrets

When Julianna’s final mission proves more deadly than she imagined, help comes from the most unlikely of places.

Raised in a castle on the remote border of England and Scotland, Lord John Stanton is the last male heir of his royal lineage. He has the responsibility to marry and carry on the family name, but a secret vow to God, after a near-fatal battle wound, could change his future from royal heir to humble servant of the church. His journey to the monastery to become a monk is interrupted when he meets a dangerous, but beautiful, woman who has plans and secrets of her own.

Abandoned by her father and raised in an institution as property of the Crown, Julianna Westerfield longs to be free to pursue love and have a family of her own. Trained to be a spy and assassin, she has a chance to earn her freedom by completing this last and most dangerous assignment. Her mission to uncover a murderous plot and the identities of the Black Guard has already cost several agents their lives, and now the assassins are after her. To survive she must depend on a handsome monk and his cantankerous donkey.

Was it divine intervention that caused John and Julianna’s paths to cross? Can they put aside their differences and join forces to deliver stolen papers containing vital information to the king in time to save countless lives?

My Review

Since I enjoyed the first book, I just knew the second would hold intrigue and surprises. With every turned page, a spy or counter attack appears as the evil schemes beg for the death of the king and his royal lineage. With so many lives at stake, I wonder how anyone sleeps with death around every corner. Who can the servants and noblemen trust?

Sometimes secrets in our lives become heavy burdens weighing us down with their unrealistic expectations. I’m not about to spill all of mine, but an element of trust needs to exist in our lives: trust in God as the author of the plans He has for each of us, trust in the ones placed in our lives, trust that good will prevail. In The Sword and the Secrets, one wrong move or thought could foil man’s plots and schemes. But God can and does work through our faults and mistakes, and He works them for the good.

I’m looking forward to the next book. I can guess who the main characters will be, but I’ll let you read and determine that for yourself. Happy reading.

More from Jan

The Sword and the Secrets is a Historical Romantic Suspense. It is written as a Medieval Christian fiction story set in England around 1209. I chose to keep the historical details to a minimum because of the inconsistency I found in researching this particular time and place. I humbly apologize to you lovers of more in-depth historical facts. I would’ve loved to have traveled to England for more hands-on research but the pandemic made that impossible.

I live in a once-rural area in Oklahoma. Urban development is fast encroaching transforming peaceful pastures into busy neighborhoods. I know it’s called “progress”, but I miss knowing all of my neighbors by name. In the good-old-days, my husband and I loved raising our children here on the farm. As a family, we had all kinds of poultry and livestock, so I can’t resist including a variety of animals in my stories from time to time.

Rosita and her daughter, Daisy, were two of our favorite donkeys on the farm. I’ll never forget when Daisy was born. I think her ears were almost long as her legs. Speaking of donkeys, did you ever hear the story about how the donkey got its cross? I included it in the book.

Precious is the name of the donkey in The Sword and the Secrets. Her mother was killed when she was but a few days old, and she was raised by an old woman who took her into her home and treated with the care and affection of the child she never had. Needless to say, Precious is smart and creative when it comes to getting her way. When her elderly master is about to die, the woman is directed by God to entrust Precious into Lord John Stanton’s care.

For the war-weary hero of this story, Lord John Stanton’s secret battlefield vow to serve God and the Church became more complicated when he was charged with the responsibility of caring for the contrary donkey. His intent to walk to London to join a monastery was supposed to be peaceful and most of all, solitary. It wasn’t until after John accepted the animal that he found out that the donkey’s elderly master had taught Precious not to budge unless first called by name. It was to keep her from being stolen, which served her well. But the name sticks in the hero’s throat every time he must submit to calling her Precious to make her move.

John’s plans also never included protecting a beautiful spy with secrets of her own.

The heroine, Julianna Westerfield was a fun surprise to me. As the story took shape in my mind, I thought the hero would meet the heroine by coming to her aid against brigands. Perhaps she was a princess fleeing her wicked guardian, etc. That however was not the way the story unfolded. As I came to Julianna’s part, I realized she had a colorful past of her own.

I love it when the story develops into something I never expected. 

The beautiful heroine of The Sword and the Secrets, Julianna Westerfield is not the princess I first envisioned but an indentured servant. She was abandoned as a child at the Grandfork Institute for Higher Learning. It is an institution run jointly by the Crown and the Church for the sole purpose of training spies and assassins to do their bidding.

I hope you’ll join John and Julianna (and Precious) on their quests and perchance uncover their deepest secrets.

May God bless and keep you and draw you ever closer to Him.

Blessings!

Jan Davis Warren

Unexpected Inheritance

“Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe them, and try to follow where they lead.” Louisa May Alcott

Four years ago, we moved to our present home in north Louisiana after we renovated a 1936 house. We found the original hardwood floors and beadboard ceiling. It came with such nice features like the tall ceilings, old doors, and wooden shutters. What I didn’t realize was that it came with other treasures.

The first year I watched a brilliant tree outside my bedroom window come to life from the winter freeze to the spring and summer sun. A tree I had never seen before attached to our property—an inheritance from the former owners, a gift from God.

Grancy Greybeard Tree! Have you ever heard of it? I love everything about it. All the seasons. The cardinals have made it their courting tree and bring their families each year. Since basking in its beauty, I’ve searched for its likeness in other yards. But I’ve only seen them in the woods, secluded from society.

I love nature and the always surprising beauty. The former owners left me other surprises such as two lovely pecan trees and irises—white, purple, and yellow. I know I can’t thank them in person, but surely, they know what joy the additional beauties of nature still bring. Thank you, God, for the inheritance.

God is in the beauty all around my house. I just have to open my eyes and soul to see and appreciate it.

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” Thoreau

Have you found an unexpected inheritance at your fingertips?

Thin Places

I read in a devotional recently about “thin places.” I like the wording of this phenomenon when I can almost reach out and touch the face of God. Of course, we cannot do that literally, but we can have the sense of God so near. And He is near, for with the belief of Him residing in a believer’s heart puts Him right there. Yet, there are times when an experience is so amazing that there is an overwhelming sense of Him being close. In these thin places, the separation between heaven and earth seems to grow a bit thinner.

“For great is Your love, reaching to the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.” Psalm 57:10

Sometimes those experiences are in nature or simplicity. Here are a few of the thin places I have experienced:

  • A sunset
  • Beauty of flowers
  • Children and innocence
  • Animals and their faithfulness
  • Arms of a loved one
  • Meditation in silence of nature
  • Scripture
  • Love
  • Gardens
  • Walks

See if you can add to the list. Do you ever sense that thin place that puts you so near to God?

I yearn for more of the thin places especially in the thick of the battle.

Review and Giveaway A Dark Beauty

About the Book

Book:  A Dark Beauty

Author: Clarissa Kae

Genre: Fairytale

Release date: March 9, 2021

A Victorian Twist on Beauty And The Beast

Bold and brilliant, Georgiana has a gift for fixing machines—from clocks to carriages—while her father has a penchant for finding trouble. In an accidental fire, Georgiana and her father scar the once handsome face of Lord Pichon, cousin to the queen.
Rumors of Georgiana’s gift raise her family’s status. Her incomparable beauty captures the eye of many gentlemen and the wrath of Lord Pichon. Abandoned by his peers and alone in his cold castle, Lord Pichon is determined to enact revenge.
When Georgiana’s father makes a terrible mistake, she sacrifices herself to pay his debt—as a lowly maid in Lord Pichon’s castle.
Her wit and warmth begin to thaw Lord Pichon’s estate, making him question his version of the past. Will her kindness break the beastly lord or will he hold her family hostage forever?

My Review

I felt welcome and invited into Queen Victoria’s drawing room in 1850. The author explores the Victorian world with vivid characters with the backdrop of the Great Exposition. I’m always excited to read a new-to-me author, and I am not disappointed. From the first page the characters expose their flaws and deep wounds in a less than perfect world, whether from the glitter of the palace or the dark rooms of townhouses. Their physical flaws work their ways into altering personalities and overall outlooks on life.

While reading the intriguing drama and ensuing changes due to life in London and at court, I ponder my own physical realm with my own flaws and failures. Am I forgiving of myself and my frailties? Or do I allow them to alter my character? Do I depend on God to see me through anything or do I turn to people to fulfill my purpose? This book offers opportunities to question personal motives as I view fellow humankind and how I treat them, flaws and all. I hope you decide to go on this journey, joining the lives of people in pain as they grow and possibly escape their physical bonds and frailties. Bravo to Clarissa Kae!

More from Clarissa

As a young girl most of the fairy tales talked about beauty as the only attribute but when Disney came out with Beauty and the Beast, my world was rocked. For the first time the heroine was a woman with a brain and a plan. I began researching the fairy tale and read every version. When my youngest daughter was born (with dark hair and big beautiful brown eyes) I named her Isla Belle. For as long as I can remember, I dreamed of writing a Beauty and the Beast retelling. And finally, that dream as come true.

My Review

In the historical WWII genre, it’s not often for a novel to come along set in the US. I forgot what a major role the work in the continental US did to propel the end of the war. This novel takes place in Brownsville, Texas. I’ve been there, and Matchett’s description is accurate—hot and dusty with a unique beauty.

Besides offering a view of states side wartime, the active role of women in the war shines through the WASP program. Headway is made even though not fully realized. Love is difficult in normal situations. But wartime? Romance blossoms and can quickly be extinguished. In wartime or pandemic or economic depression romance and love have roles, but will the sacrifice be worth it? As I read this novel, I put myself into a war and wonder what role I would play? Would I love or leave?

More from Linda

Dear Readers:

It’s all I can do to parallel park my car…well, actually I can’t. I’m terrible at that sort of thing, which is why I’m so impressed with the Women’s Air Service Pilot who served during World War II. Created in August 1943 by merging the Women’s Flying Training Detachment and the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron, the WASP was a civilian organization that came under the authority of the Air Force and freed male pilots for combat or other duties. Their leader was the intrepid Jacqueline Cochran, an award winning pilot who set and broke numerous records during her career.

Qualifications for the program were stringent, and of the more than 25,000 women who applied, only 1,800 were accepted. Of that number, 1,074 completed the program. These women flew over sixty million miles and transported every type of military aircraft from the ninety-nine foot long B-29 Bomber that weighted over 100,000 pounds to the P-51 Mustang that could fly at over 400 miles per hour.

The WASP also towed targets for live anti-aircraft gun practice, simulated strafing missions and transported cargo. Thirty-eight WASP members lost their lives and one disappeared while on a ferry mission, her fate still unknown. Disbanded in December 1944, the WASP did not receive military status or benefits for their service. However, after nearly three decades its members were granted veteran status, and in 2009 they were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.

It is my hope that Love at First Flight honors these brave women in some small way.

Blessings,

Linda Shenton Matchett

Review and Giveaway Heart Pressed

Heart Pressed

About the Book

Book:  Heart Pressed

Author: Melissa Wardwell

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: February 23, 2021

Hearts pressed

Crushes are great for grapes, wine, and romance—not so great for hearts.

The Sweetheart Festival, an Elnora Island institution, has sparked more than a few romances over the years, but who would have thought it would light a fire in two hearts from two of the island’s oldest families. When Amara Martin and Dante Greco meet, sparks fly that may ignite more than romance.

Two wineries, old feuds, generations of traditions.

Seeing the attraction at Amara and Dante’s chance meeting, Beth Stevens and Scott Anderson join forces to do a little matchmaking, not realizing the pressure it would bring to both households and their own hearts. The new couple must decide if they will adhere to tradition or break free from expectations and choose love. Pressure on every side threatens a love that hasn’t yet had a chance to ripen—for both Amara and Dante as well as for Beth and Scott.

In this “forbidden love” novel, Heart Pressed continues the Elnora Island romances of the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

My Review

Melissa’s Independence Islands novels are yummy! Beth and her concoctions make me want to bake something delicious dripping with calories. The portrayal of island life fills a yearning for a simpler existence. There is no lack of entertainment or drama. The background lacks the noise and rapidity of life on the mainland.

With the introduction of Amara and Dante, the age-old vice of holding grudges laced with secrets winds through the generations to land in their laps. They have a choice to continue the feud or twist it up a bit. One reason I love this series is the continuation of the stories of beloved characters. Beth’s story is not finished which reminds me that my story is ongoing too. Life and worth has nothing to do with age but everything to do with God’s purpose.

More from Melissa

“Life never goes as planned.”
That is the understatement of the century. 2020 has been the perfect example of it. Around the world, plans were made on January 1st to do this or that. Plans to use the year as a spring board for something new, better, or just a change.

Then that virus dashed all those plans. We were shut out from the world with only our books, our televisions, and our families. Some battled the shut down alone, while others had a house full (one friend of mine had eleven people in her house and only one was not her child). I know a couple of single friends who decided to stay at one house for the few weeks that Michigan was closed. Others, like myself, may not have done as well as everyone thought they were. Brave face and all. But we survived. We persevered. We adapted.

“Heart Pressed” is my covid story. It is about the unexpected way life change while you are in the middle of making plans for the future. How some changes are wonderful and rewarding, while others will bring you to the ground, begging for mercy.

Take Amara, for instance. She had a plan and put things into motion to make that plan come to fruition, but God (don’t you love those two words?) had a different plan and took hold of her heart. He softened it, molded it, made it a place where He could reside. Then life came knocking. The one person she thought would be there, couldn’t be, but God (there it is again) gave her someone to count on, hold her hand, and help her through the storms. He showed her that she wasn’t alone in this world by surrounding her with new people who loved her and cared for her.

(Disclaimer – I know God didn’t do anything, but we all have those stories in our own lives where God intervened on our behalf.)

Did you find a way to survive the storm? Did God bring people into your life, even at a distance, that made things better? Did your faith strengthen to new levels? I hope so because life never goes as we plan, but it sure is nice to have someone to hold your hand.
