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 man who 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.

This book was incredibly wonderful; I loved it just as much as the first in the series! Arabelle was such a wonderful character, so generous and caring even in the face of betrayal. She had such a strong faith and prayed for people she knew and didn't know while also asking God how she could help someone and listening for an answer or nudge about what she should do. She also struggled with feeling rejected because of her father being gone for most of her life, her mother dying young and just feeling like she lacked that sense of security. She was also tall, "gangly" and plain and figured no man would be interested in her for herself, only for her money. Camden was a fascinating character, a gentleman who knew right from wrong but hadn't been living like he does until his squadron dies and he blames himself. He was reckless and impulsive yet fiercely loyal to his men and his family. He had changed since the incident and now knew what they had been doing was wrong but yet he was still running from God rather than facing his sins. I enjoyed seeing his journey to faith and redemption. He also cared about Arabelle and the position he put her in, though he tried not to. It was sweet seeing these two fall for each other as they both tried to talk themselves out of it, neither one feeling worthy of love. I enjoyed their banter and I loved the talk about codes and deciphering them. It was fascinating to see the enemy's point of view and watching both sides try to outwit the other, wondering what was going to happen next! I also loved seeing characters from the first book, especially De Wilde! The writing was wonderful. I can't recommend this book enough!
