Fairy Tales / The Merchant's Daughter

Well, here is the first book in the new "series" I promised. Although, it's like a week behind. Sorry about that. Hope you all like this book as much as I did. (which was a lot :)

Enjoy the last few days of January!
 
Book Title: The Merchant's Daughter
Series: Book 2 of the Hagenheim / Fairy Tale Romance
Author: Melanie Dickerson
 
Description:
An unthinkable danger. An unexpected choice.

Annabel, once the daughter of a wealthy merchant, is trapped in indentured servitude to Lord Ranulf, a recluse who is rumored to be both terrifying and beastly. Her circumstances are made even worse by the proximity of Lord Ranulf's bailiff—a revolting man who has made unwelcome advances on Annabel in the past.
 
Believing that life in a nunnery is the best way to escape the escalation of the bailiff's vile behavior and to preserve the faith that sustains her, Annabel is surprised to discover a sense of security and joy in her encounters with Lord Ranulf. As Annabel struggles to confront her feelings, she is involved in a situation that could place Ranulf in grave danger.
 
Ranulf's future, and possibly his heart, may rest in her hands, and Annabel must decide whether to follow the plans she has cherished or the calling God has placed on her heart. 


My Review:
I totally loved this book! It's a delightful rendition of Beauty and the Beast. Of course, there was no magic involved and no spells turning humans into beasts and back again; much more realistic. Annabel was a sweet young woman and an inspiration to read about; you couldn't help but like her right away. There was some action and mystery that kept your full attention for the whole book. The Merchant's Daughter is one of my favorites of Melanie Dickerson's books -- a wonderful Christian version of the fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast.
 
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 
 
Coming Soon: An interview with the author,

Melanie Dickerson!
