About the Book:
All of England thinks Phillip Camden a monster–a man who deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But as nurse Arabelle Denler watches the so-dubbed “Black Heart” every day, she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their paths twist together and he declares himself her new protector, she realizes she has her own role to play in his healing.
Phillip Camden would have preferred to die that day with his squadron 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. What comes as a shock is the reborn desire to truly live that Arabelle inspires in him.
But when an old acquaintance shows up and seems set on using him in a plot that has the codebreakers of Room 40 in a frenzy, new affections are put to the test.
This was so good! I’m not surprised – every single one of the books I’ve read by this author have been amazing and quickly become favorites. On Wings of Devotion was no exception! The writing is seamless, the plot amazing, and the characters just astonishingly lovely. Phillip Camden is a hero that is rough around the edges, but what an amazing heart he has, truly. I love his character. Same goes for Arabelle – she was utterly fantastic. So kind hearted, so down-to-earth and so real. The pain she felt at wanting to be chosen, to be cared for and about echoed one in my own heart, and so I bonded to her all the more for that. I loved both hers and Cam’s journey. And their relationship was so endearing.I want more of their story, honestly. Does it have to be the end? I know I will adore the next book in this amazing series, and will fall in love with those characters too, but for right now…I want to hang out with Cam and Ara a bit longer. ^.^Superb WWI historical fiction with everything good. <3
