Jody Hedlund writes engaging stories, no doubt about it! This third release has a lot to love: a strong heroine, a battle of good vs. evil, plenty of romance, and a setting that is intriguing and full of all kinds of danger - from the freezing cold to wolves of both the animal and human variety.

Lily is passionate about life - finding humor and excitement in living it, and finding joy in helping others to embrace it. When she blows into Connell's cold, career-centered life like a warm summer breeze, hearts melt and fires blaze. But Lily's impetuousness pitted against Connell's reserve doesn't make for a safe situation...

Storms abound throughout the pages as winter weather and evil actions must be faced. Unending Devotion is a well-plotted novel in that sense - plenty of twists and turns, plenty of challenges to the characters, and a well-placed climax. I confess that I didn't completely connect with the heroine, despite her admirable qualities - her choices are great for the plot, but there's just something about her strong will and her character's journey that didn't completely resonate with me. The lessons about trusting in God's timing and plan, as well as refusing to be apathetic and inactive when it comes to standing up for what is right, are important ones. Those lessons just didn't overly mesh for me in a powerful way.

Unending Devotion is a great read. The romance is sweet, albeit a little overbearing at times. I think certain personalities might find the heroine (and perhaps the hero) more appealing than other personalities... But even though The Doctor's Lady is my favorite Hedlund book so far, Christian historical romance fans should be quite pleased with Unending Devotion.

*With thanks to the publisher through CFBA for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion.*

Allie yes, the romance was a bit overbearing at times!! But I liked it enough over all to give it 5 stars.

Yay! I LOVE plenty of romance in my books, too - I guess it just depends on how it's portrayed on whether or not it entirely wins me over. :) Hope you enjoy this one!
