A glamorous Hollywood starlet must fight for her life, her love, and her country in this epic 1930s tale.
During the golden age of Hollywood, film star Roxy Price's future shines bright -- until the fated Black Friday when it all comes crashing down. Her only hope is to join forces with Belgian duke Rolfe Van Horne, a film investor. But Rolfe is not who he seems, and his plans to support a growing unrest in Europe could break Roxy's heart and endanger her life. When her country needs her, will she have the courage to surrender her glittering world and her one true love?

My review for book 2, Baroness


Review:
I've enjoyed this entire series, but this one is my favorite book so far. 
I love the era, and it being based around glitzy, glamorous, Hollywood. It is a theme you can put into any story I read. There is just something that appeals to me about the 1920's - 1940's. The music, the clothes, the class everyone seemed to have had... all call to me.
I really hope the author continues this legacy series of stories. After reading this one, I hope the next are about Roxys' children, continuing the legacy.
Even though this is a series, you can read them as stand alone books. I wouldn't recommend that though, as they are fantastic enough to start at book 1. Learning the back stories to some of the characters may not be necessary to follow along, but it makes it better.


4.5/5

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
