The Friday 56: The Sound of Diamonds

Hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.
Happy Friday!

It's time to celebrate Rachelle Rea Cobb's Steadfast Love series! In honor of Book Two, The Sound of Silver, she's hosting a fun birthday blog tour and giveaway for a couple weeks. Since today's the day of my tour post, I decided to continue spreading the (steadfast 😉 ) love over here and feature a quote from Book One, The Sound of Diamonds. Enjoy!

"I had hurt her. I knew I had. The acknowledgement seared through my soul as prayers spun from my silent lips. Escapades from years gone past could not compare to this."

Goodreads Synopsis:
Her only chance of getting home is trusting the man she hates. 
With the protestant Elizabeth on the throne of England and her family in shambles, Catholic maiden Gwyneth seeks refuge in the Low Countries of Holland, hoping to soothe her aching soul. But when the Iconoclastic Fury descends and bloodshed overtakes her haven, she has no choice but to trust the rogue who arrives, promising to see her safely home to her uncle's castle. She doesn't dare to trust him...and yet doesn't dare to refuse her one chance to preserve her own life and those of the nuns she rescues from the burning convent. 
Dirk Godfrey is determined to restore his honor at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk knows he has only one chance at redemption, and it lies with the lovely Gwyneth, who hates him for the crimes she thinks he committed. He must see her to safety, prove to the world that he is innocent, prove that her poor eyesight is not the only thing that has blinded her, but what is he to do when those goals clash?
The home Gwyneth knew is not what she once thought. When a dark secret and a twisted plot for power collide in a castle masquerading as a haven, the saint and the sinner must either dare to hold to hope...or be overcome.
