In Dissident we are introduced to politician Caroline Gerard, a widower with two small children. She has a blooming career in the House of Representatives. Enter John (Jack) McIntyre, a fellow politician whom Caroline said some not so nice things about. Through an apology and a drink these two start a friendship that becomes more over time. The attraction was always there. As Jack and Caroline spend more time together, these two easily become one of my favorite couples. Their love story is inspiring and beautiful.
SO much is revealed in the next book, Conscience. And in true Ms. London fashion, we still have questions at this point. However, the way the story slowly unravels will have you on edge the entire time. As long as this book was, I never felt it. I craved the next page. Even when forced to put down the book, I often found myself thinking about reading it. The author’s seductive and alluring prose is what makes this saga addicting. If this is what every political thriller, romantic suspense book is like, then sign me up!
My heart pounded through every page. Every single one. Through the declarations of love between Jack and Caroline. To the raw and grittiness that occurs. I was absolutely invested in the story from the moment it began. The writing is truly superb as the author perfectly orchestrates a story of love and hope even in the face of danger and evil. As in the first story, the romance and suspense are perfectly balanced as there are twists and turns we never see coming.
Sojourn and the rest of the books in this series has easily become one of the most unforgettable reads of my life. This riveting and compelling story gripped me. Stole my heart. And I don’t think I will ever get it back. The author brilliantly feeds my romantic soul as she expertly balances the gritty life Caroline endures with romance and suspense. The scenes in this book are so passionate and sensual. You have no doubt that the love between Caroline and Jack is timeless. The ending left me breathless and in awe. My heart is so full.
Can we please talk about the last chapter of Sojourn? Seriously? Cecilia London. You MOVE me. Your words OWN me. That had to be the most intense, beautiful, tragic, hopeful romantic chapter I have ever read in my life. I found myself reading it over and over several times. And each time, the words slayed me. I was IN that moment. This gut wrenching and heartfelt scene will forever hold a place in my heart.
Captivating and thrilling, this story will hold on to you. And not let go. This author is extremely talented. Brilliant. She is a master of words. The story is told in the present as well as a series as flashbacks. The author effortlessly transitions between the two. She is very strategic on how she places these time frame. The writing is phenomenal. The author easy takes you to places as a reader I have never been. I am weaved through the pages of this story and feel every single emotion endured by her characters. She not only places you in their hearts, but she allows you to understand their souls. And everything they stand for.
Why aren’t we talking more about this book and series? Isn’t this what reading is about? To challenge us? Push us out of our element? To make us believe, to hope, to dream. To love? Fiercely and whole heartedly? What a thought provoking, profound, and brilliant series. To the author. You left me in pieces. Shattered. But I’m trusting the process. Knowing that someday, somehow my heart will be made whole again. Words cannot express how much I am in awe of this entire series. I cannot wait for what is to come.
