A Loyal Heart by Jody Hedlund is the fourth installment in her young adult historical series, which began with the prequel novella The Vow and continued through the following three books, An Uncertain Choice, A Daring Sacrifice, and For Love and Honor.
This has been a really enjoyable series that got better with each installment. Geared towards teenage and young adult audiences, I think it would be enjoyable for adults as well.
This novel follows the story of Sir Aldric and Lady Olivia. I don’t want to say anything about the plot because I don’t want to give anything away, and there’s not much I can say about these two characters and how they meet without getting into spoilers. So, I’ll go straight into what I loved about this book. First of all, these characters are adorable and have fantastic chemistry. I love the tangles they get themselves into as they learn who is trustworthy and understand more of people’s motives. The plot keeps moving and keeps you engaged; I literally finished this book in one sitting. I picked it up and did not put it down until I had finished it. I loved the storyline, I loved the setting, and I loved the time period. These young adults novels are definitely winners for me as well as my younger sisters, and address important issues like being trustworthy and having integrity and good character while being wholesome entertainment.
