The Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green Book Review and Giveaway


It's the 1720's and Julianne's new life across the ocean in the French colony of Louisiana was a far cry from her blossoming midwife career.  But one of her clients dies and she is marked as a murderer.  She desperately finds a way of escape and being forced to marry another convict was the only way for transport, but that brought her much closer to her beloved brother, Benjamin who had gone to New Orleans as a soldier.  Julianne encounters a law abiding military officer, Marc-Paul Girard who knew her brother but wanted to spare her the details surrounding Benjamin's desertion.  When some unexpected and devastating events develop, Julianne is left broken and alone.  She is determined to fight for justice and honor, but she cannot do it alone.  When she finally begins to understand that grace is what will keep her from plunging in the depths of bitterness, hate and fear, she finally opens her heart and life to a man who truly loves her and gives her the stability and safety that she needs.  But her brother is still missing and she cannot give up hope or should she?
Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green is a historical novel with romance, history and plenty of action.  The descriptive scenes were incredibly well written as if the reader was there with the characters.  The intricate balance of plot, characters, setting, dialogue and climax was immensely appealing.  I could not put this book down.  There were some very heart aching and repulsive scenes that made this story come alive.  The main character was truly a heroine with many secrets, losses and loves that she determined to not let her concede. 
If you want to get lost in a historical romance, check out The Mark of the King.

Enter to win The Mark of the King- It's a keeper!
