Sinful Folk
by Ned Hayes

In December of the year 1377, five children were burned to death in a suspicious house fire. A small band of villagers traveled 200 miles across England in midwinter to demand justice for their children’s deaths. Click HERE to read my full review.  Wonderful story, I really am grateful to have read this compelling story. Thank you Ned, look forward to your next project.

 
Sharp Hook of Love - cover

The Sharp Hook of Love
by Sherry Jones

Among the young women of 12th century Paris, Heloise d’Argenteuil stands apart. Extraordinarily educated and quick-witted, she is being groomed by her uncle to become an abbess in the service of God.

But with one encounter, her destiny changes forever. Pierre Abelard, headmaster at the Nôtre Dame Cloister School, is acclaimed as one of the greatest philosophers in France. His controversial reputation only adds to his allure, yet despite the legions of women swooning over his poetry and dashing looks, he is captivated by the brilliant Heloise alone. As their relationship blossoms from a meeting of the minds to a forbidden love affair, both Heloise and Abelard must choose between love, duty, and ambition.

Sherry Jones weaves the lovers’ own words into an evocative account of desire and sacrifice. As intimate as it is erotic, as devastating as it is beautiful, The Sharp Hook of Love is a poignant, tender tribute to one of history’s greatest romances, and to love’s power to transform and endure. Click HERE to read my full review. I LOVED this novel, Sherry Jones, thank you for taking on Heloise and Abelard, a must read, you’ll be very grateful.

    Tidy ending please. Cliffhangers to force you to wait for the next one I find despicable!

    I think Tidy endings, even though I do like cliffhangers, but waiting a year or more for the next book is so desperate.

    Honestly I like both even if a cliff hanger is torture when the next book in the series doesn’t come out until next year.

  32. It depends. Mostly I prefer tidy endings and Happily Ever After types. Though, I don’t mind a cliff hanger or two every now and then. 🙂

    I prefer a tidy ending, but if it is part of a series, I don’t mind a cliffhanger in the early books as long as the final book has a great ending.
