Blog tour - Bonds of Loyalty



About the book: "It shall be the son, the firstborn in the new monarchy, who shall quiet the fears and unite the nation again."

The infamous prophecy declaring that the firstborn would be a boy is the last thing Sarah wants to deal with. As if being newly engaged isn’t difficult enough, she’s still coming to terms with the fact that the first eighteen years of her life were a farce. The prophecy—the reason she had been secreted away from her family and her royal heritage to begin with—wasn’t supposed to disrupt her life any more than it previously had. But when unexpected events force her to leave her fianc√©, Prince Alexander, Sarah must return to her home country of Kyrnidan to face her destiny. 

Reunited with her royal family, Sarah is thrust into the political turmoil that surrounds her ancestral home. To make things worse, her arrival has upturned the long-held prophecy. 
As the voices of distension mount against her, Sarah turns to her bodyguard, Luther, for protection. But Luther’s protection comes with a price. Propelled into a plot that threatens her life and the welfare of the entire kingdom, Sarah must determine where her love and loyalty truly lie. Torn between two men, she will now have to face her fears and undertake a journey of self-discovery that will change the fate of a nation….

My Review: I was way excited to be able to read this sequel to Mark of Royalty, which I loved. This book was great too. I loved Sarah, she is an amazing character, it was great to be in her head. I loved how I was just as confused as she was about just who was out to get her and if her prince, Alex, was really still in love with her or if he was ready to move on. I loved the plot, Sarah must return to her original kingdom, the one she's never lived in, to visit her sick mother and try not to make it seem as though she is trying to take anything away from her brother's princely authority, even when she's asked for her personal take on things. This is a great book, filled with great characters. I enjoyed getting lost in it! 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the authors: JENNIFER K. CLARK grew up in the small mountain town of Monticello Utah where she is proud to say that she passed all of her English classes, and with fairly good grades too. At the time her writing aspirations didn’t go much beyond turning in her next essay on time, however, she did have a passion for fictional tales and inherited her father’s love of storytelling. Convincing neighborhood kids that their backyards lay over ancient ruins and stories to back it all up was part of daily routine. Made up languages, haunted houses, and tales of jungle adventures were also widely known among her friends. After graduating college, her interest in writing was sparked when she shared one of her made up stories with her sister, Stephonie Williams. Together they wrote their first novel, Mark of Royalty. Since then, Jennifer has fallen in love with the art of writing and has set out to learn the craft of combining the written word with storytelling. With veneration for the Renaissance time period, Jennifer loves to study history and attends festivals depicting that particular era whenever she can. She also finds the study of war strategies irresistible and enjoys reading about the great battles that have shaped history, using them as inspiration in creating the battle scenes in her own books. In her spare time she spends a lot of time with the animals on her farm and still takes time to spin yarns with her kids and other youth in her community.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church. But who were the brave women who paved the way for modern-day sister missionaries? In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries.
