The French Encounter by Jenna Brandt

Surrender to destiny: a window to the heart opens, when one door closes. While fleeing from danger and searching for her long-lost brother, Lady Margaret encounters new love. Despite her past, can Lady Margaret discover hope for the future? Deeply passionate and intensely gripping, The French Encounter weighs the struggle between giving in to temptation and sacrificing for refuge. The French Encounter (Book 2). Ruined by a night she will never forget, Lady Margaret, Countess of Renwick, must flee from England with her infant son to hide from the man who destroyed her life and from the sister-in-law who hates her. Relentlessly, the duke and viscountess hunt for them, planning to take the child to whom they both feel entitled. Margaret turns to God, believing he will protect her family and help her find her long-lost twin brother, Randall. While searching for Randall in France, Margaret is pursued by two enticing men: Pierre, the alluring Vidame of Demoulin, and Michel, the powerful Marquis de Badour. One man promises passion while the other offers security. Will Margaret surrender the chance for love to secure her safety?

Jenna BrandtAbout the Author

Y'all I am in love with this series. It is a whole lot different than the books I normally read. Not because it's a different genre or anything but it reads so deep an dark at times as well as very sensual and romantic. I will say it pushes the limit on Christian fiction and is a bit edgy but I can't help but keep reading and reading. I like that the author is more edgy with this story because it keeps it from feeling so syrupy sweet and like it's being wrapped up in a neat little bow. If Y'all decide you want to read the series, go ahead and get all three at the same time. Because you are definitely going to want to read straight through it. Check out below the specific things I liked and didn't like about book 2 in the series.

My Thoughts
Book 2 of the Window to the Heart Saga did not disappoint. I enjoyed where the book went and hated to see the twist at the end. I love and hate cliff hangers. I am however so grateful that I get to read all three books close together. I still like Margret and feel very sad for her at times with all she is having to go through. I almost liked Pierre and then I didn't. I really liked Michel also. I love the romance in these books, but the passion can be intense at times so be for-warned this isn't light romance. I would consider this to be more of an edgy Christian series, so keep that in mind while reading. My only real negative is that there is one ugly word in the book. Keep in mind that this book is definitely adult fiction and I would not recommend it for children under 13. Maybe even a little older than that. Overall an awesome read for adults. I received a copy of the book from the author for free. A positive review was not required. All opinions are my own.

I am so excited for Book 3: The American Conquest
