Against Every Warning, She's Drawn Ever Closer to the Man Known as "Black Heart"
All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monster--a manwho deliberately caused the deaths of his squadron. But he would have preferred to die that day with his men rather than be recruited to the Admiralty's codebreaking division. The threats he receives daily are no great surprise and, in his opinion, well deserved.
As nurse Arabelle Denler observes the so-dubbed "Black Heart," she sees something far different: a hurting man desperate for mercy. And when their families and paths twist together unexpectedly, she realizes she has a role to play in his healing--and some of her own to do as well.
With Camden's court-martial looming, an old acquaintance shows up, intent on using him in a plot that sends the codebreakers of Room 40 into a frenzy. With their fragile hopes for the future in the cross hairs, Arabelle and Camden must hold on to hope--and to each other--if they want to survive.

Roseanna White continues to surprise me with the quality of her stories. I honestly cannot think of another book which I felt showed the transformation from absolute sinner, oblivious to their need for salvation, to transformed hero by the grace of God as well as this book did. Camden was a rogue, his past made perfectly clear while still not forcing the reader to live through it with him.
I loved this story and its message of grace. Arabelle, though at times she might have seemed a little too forgiving, was a great example in Camden's life that God forgives. Yet she also didn't shy away from calling him out when he did something wrong. I think what I liked most about her character though was that she was always willing to forgive the woman who wronged her rather than become petty. So often in affairs, the women are held to a double standard while the men mostly get away with it.
This story also did a great job with its villain. While I didn't care for Diellza at first, instead wanting more of Camden and Arabelle, Diellza steadily grew on me. Though she is clearly the villain of the story, Roseanna refrained from vilifying her, instead showing her as human like everyone else, in need of grace.
This book has me really excited for the next in the series and I can't wait to see who it will be about.
