The Longing by Tamara Leigh

My review today is on the medieval romance, The Longing. This book is the fifth book in the Age of Faith Series. As I have said before I loved this series! I hate to see it all end. This book is well written, action packed and full of twists and turns. I love the inspirational aspect of the book. I know you will enjoy it.

Eveard Wulfrith is the last member of the Wulfrith family that remained single. Eveard is determined to continue training young men into the best trained knights in the land. The Wulfrith Knights' reputation is without question. Eveard never leaves the castle and women aren't allowed within the walls of the castle. Eveard is shocked when a woman out of his past comes to the castle and asks for sanctuary for her and her nephew in the castle; a child she believes that could be his own and the woman who he believes cost him the woman he loved.

Lady Susanna was once in love with Eveard Wulfrith but he was in love with her best friend Judith, her future sister-in-law. He had a moment with Judith where even though she was betrothed to another he took her in his arms and kissed her. Susanna interrupted the kiss and ran away. What neither of them realized was that Judith's future husband witnessed the kiss. He blamed Susanna for not telling him about the kiss and made her life as miserable as possible. When Judith went ahead and married him anyway he treated her badly and couldn't believe the child she carried was his own. On the death of his wife in childbirth he named the child Judas for betraying him and came to hate the child. Susanna was the only one to care for the boy. He married again and now ten years later he has died and his last wife has given him a son. The mother-in-law is determined her grandson will be the heir. Susanna takes Judas and goes to the one man who know the boys true parentage.

This is the journey of several destroyed souls trying to find out the answers to an impossible situation. God has a plan for these people! A plan for a hope and a future and it is much greater than any of them hoped. God has a plan for you too. Surrender your heart to Him and watch Him turn your life around.

The Kindling by Tamara Leigh

My review today is on the Medieval Romance, The Kindling. This is the fourth book in the Age of Faith Series. This has been an excellent series and each book is that much harder to put down. I'm sad I'm over half way to the end. This book is well written, action packed and full of twists and turns. You are going to love this one.

She knows when he finds out who she really is he will never forgive her for what her family has done to him and his family even though she wasn't raised by them. Her brother Christian isn't even aware of her lineage.

The Redeeming by Tamara Leigh

My review today is on the Medieval Romance, The Redeeming. This is the third book in the Age of Faith Series. I have so enjoyed these books. As far as I'm concerned these are a must read series. I have had a really hard time putting this book down; it is well written, action packed, and faith filled.
You will love it.

Gaenor Wulfrith has been ordered to marry Baron Christian Lavonne. She and her sister escaped her mother's castle and she is now hiding in the infamous Wulfrith Castle where women are not allowed. As she hides she meets a man that stirs her blood as no one else has been able to do. Her brothers finally decide that the Baron is not cruel like his brother and his father so it is arranged for Gaenor to meet her future husband. When she is informed of a deal her brother made with her betrothed she runs again. The knight that takes her away is a man she had a past with and when she returns she has to admit that she is no longer a pure maiden. Her betrothed, the man that she has come to care for, marries her anyway but doesn't trust her.

Christian Lavonne goes to Wulfrith Castle to train with his betrothed brothers. He had been raised to become a priest but now is the baron and is not strong in some areas. The Wulfrith brothers are the best at training. He knows Gaenor as he meets her in the shadows of the chapel at Wulfrith Castle but wants to know more of her before they marry so he doesn't reveal who he is. He comes to care for her a great deal but is then forced to leave her without telling her who he really is. When he goes to finally meet her she has run off with the knight he knows that she once cared for but who loves her sister. When they find her and he is told that she is no longer a virgin he agrees to marry her but will not consummate the marriage until he is sure she doesn't carry the other man;s child. 

A struggle of two broken souls; both feel like they are not worthy of love or blessings but are drawn to each other. God has a plan for these two, a plan much greater than they had ever dreamed. God has a plan for you too. Surrender to Him and watch Him work in your life. He is awesome!

The Yielding by Tamara Leigh

My review is on the Medieval Romance, The Yielding. This is the second book in the Age of Faith Series. I really enjoy Medieval books and this one is awesome. I read the first one in the series and made the mistake of reading the sample of this one and knew I had to buy it; although I just don't buy books, (most of the books I read are sent to me to read and review.) but I loved it. I so enjoyed the characters. This book is well written, action packed, and well researched. I know you will love it.

King Henry has decreed that one of the Wulfrith girls must marry Baron Christian Lavonne. Beatrix Wulfrith, the youngest has been pledged to the church so that meant that Gaenor would be forced to marry the man but the family all knew his brother Geoffrey who had recently been killed while trying to kill Garr Wulfrth's wife. Fearing Christain was like his brother; Beatrix and Gaenor flee to their brother's castle to hide. The Baron's men chase down the girls but they are separated and Beatrix is attacked and almost ravaged. She and her attacker are thrown over a cliff and the attacker falls on her dagger. Beatrix suffers a head injury and cannot remember what happened but she is accused of murdering the man and is to be put on trial.


Michael D'Arci is the physician that attends to Beatrix but he also the brother of the man that had been killed at this woman's hands. He is determined that she will pay for what happened to his brother. He is unprepared for his attraction to this beautiful woman and the doubt that somehow fills his heart. He really wants to believe her but he can't believe his brother would attack a noble woman.


A struggle of good over evil. Two souls who have no hope for a future together but God has a plan for them, a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too and it's far better than anything you thought possible. Just give Him your heart and give Him control and then watch Him work things out.

The boys ranch has moved into a new facility but the inheritance comes with stipulations. They have met several but there was still two more to go. The first one, Avery is here in town but is very angry at her grandfather for putting her in this mess, the other is to find his grand father and they have very little time to accomplish it. Avery was being thrown out of the bed and breakfast so he did the only thing he could, he brought them home, an invasion of tiny pinkness. How can he deal with all these girls?

Avery Culpepper grew up in foster homes; she didn't have a home like these boys did, love, understanding, and guidance. Her grandfather left her a small rustic cabin and then left the rest of his estate to the boys home. At first she really resented it but as she came to know the boys and the staff she decide to stay and help. Much of that had to do with Gabe; who although he is a solitary man he asked her and her twin four years to come stay with him at his ranch. He only did it to keep her here until the celebration. As Avery watches him deal with her daughters she is drawn to him. But she also watches him fall apart as they are unable to find his grandfather. Everything depended on finding this man.

A journey of these two solitary broken souls. God has a plan for these two, for the girls they are caring for, and for the boys ranch that means so much for them. God has a plan for you too. Just surrender your heart and watch Him turn your life around.
