JustRead Publicity Tours


Against every warning, she’s drawn ever closer to the man known as “Black Heart.”

All of England thinks Major Phillip Camden a monstera 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 healingand 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 hopeand to each otherif they want to survive.

Once again, Roseanna M. White does not disappoint! On Wings of Devotion, her second Codebreakers novel, delves into the scandal and mystery surrounding Major Phillip Camden, also known as “Black Heart.” Yet, even the blackest of hearts does not lie outside the realm of redemption, and though first introduced in The Number of Love as quite surly and unlikable, his story proves quite endearing and likable after all.

The British public believes Phillip to be a scoundrel and monster. However, as he forms a friendship with nurse (and wealthy heiress) Arabelle Denler, helping her after the ending of her engagement, his true character shines—but will he remain too stubborn to prove who he is and ask for what he needs before it is too late? 

Ara, of course, cannot helping Phillip as much as he helps her, and she proves quite capable of handling the burdens of the past and the uncertainties of the future. Together, they make a perfect, though unexpected, pair, and following them as they approach their many challenges is a true pleasure. I highly, highly recommend their story to readers of inspirational historical romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Roseanna M. White is a bestselling, Christy Award-nominated author who has long claimed that words are the air she breathes. When not writing fiction, she’s homeschooling her two kids, editing, designing book covers, and pretending her house will clean itself. Roseanna is the author of a slew of historical novels that span several continents and thousands of years. Spies and war and mayhem always seem to find their way into her books…to offset her real life, which is blessedly ordinary.
