Favorite Read This Month:

Checkmate by Steven James was my favorite read this month! That book was fantastic and I loved it!

My thoughts on December:

I've very happy with what I was able to read. I finished several Christmas reads (though I still have a couple more I have to read next month) and I exceeded my goal for the month! ;)

Looking ahead:

My goal for January:

Finish 2 or more of my "Random Reads"
Finish a total of 12 books

I chose my Random Read this month from my Kindle review books, since I'm trying to clean out my e-reads. Duty is the book that was chosen and I'm looking forward to starting and finishing it!

Duty to King

Tomas Dyrease, the newly made Earl of Irvaine and the village of Wisenvale, owes his good fortune to his king and the recent civil war. When his benefactor demands Tomas marry the cousin of a noble, he obeys. However, no one warned him that she wasn’t a typical noblewoman.

Duty to Others

Brielle Solarius struggles to keep her village from starvation under the new Lord Wisten, her cousin. The men rode off to war and never returned. The remaining women and children face a dire winter if they do not find a solution soon. When she learns her cousin sold her into marriage to save his life, she isn’t surprised. However, she is taken aback by Lord Irvaine’s unpolished ways. Was this man a noble or a foot soldier?

Duty to Each Other

Bound by the words of their vows, they face a rough future. They must forge a marriage while battling betrayal, accusations of treason, and villains from the past. Survival depends on their precarious trust in each other. Failure could mean death.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
