I’ll actually interrupt my own post to marvel, once again, at how prolific Jody Hedlund is! Book 5 of this series is set to release August 16th & Book 6 on September 13, yes of this year! CRAZY! I’ve also heard that a third book will come out in the Waters of Time series. Yay!
This is the fourth book in a series, and I’ve just found the entire series really well set up. Everything flows together. Each book is just rooting for another set of personalities and circumstances from within a comprehensive whole. I’ve loved it. Zero disappointment.
And, although I’ve thought this about each book in the series, Enriched may be my favorite! What would it be like for an honorable man to suddenly need to marry for money? And what would it be like for someone who’s been preparing to take vows at a convent to suddenly be semi-engaged to someone who any single girl, even the novitiates laud from afar?
Now, that’s not to say our male protagonist is the suavest or most charming. This guy is a heartthrob for those of us who look beneath rough exteriors. A heartthrob he remains, especially if you have read the previous books. I think the previous works tone down his tough guy-ness with clearer insight into his loyalty, goodness, sincerity, etc.
Another great summer read. But, let’s face it. These books are great anytime reads.
