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.
Former pilot Phillip Camden's reputation has gone down in flames with relentless speculation that he led his squadron to their deaths. He has been re-appointed to the codebreaking division, and the threats he receives daily only drive the knife of regret deeper.
Heiress Arabelle Denler is a trained nurse, engaged to a man who says he cannot love her, she watches with all the other nurses as Cam walks by everyday. Cam sees her kind heart, and appoints himself her protector.
Meanwhile a troublemaker from Cam's past is trying to resurrect the drama that besmirched his good name, and drag it all into a public trial.
I loved how supportive Ara and Cam are of each other, as they are both very aware of their own personal shortcomings. Instead they build each other up and help each other overcome the past. Ara helps Cam to see that he doesn't have to live in the past, and that he can laugh again and move past what happened. I liked how Cam admires Ara's kindness, positivity, and faith.
There was a lot going on in this book with the war on, and the codebreakers working together. As well as a lot of character development and growth with Ara and Cam's friendship, all the drama going on with her relationships, as well as his past and family. I really liked how thoughtful Cam was, and how he and Ara find a true friend in each other.
I wasn't sure how much I would like this book since the previous book in the series completely blew me away, but the author absolutely delivered with this excellent gem, filled with faith, high stakes, romance and redemption. Highly recommend!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
