The Lieutenant’s Bargain is the second of Regina Jennings’ books I have read. What I have found each time is that reading her stories leaves me anxious to read more.

Once again, Janalyn Voigt writes a story full of action and intrigue.

We had the map, the trail was mostly a loop with a few intersecting paths going across it. How hard could it be to get where we needed to? Yeah, famous last words! I’m not sure if it was that the trails were poorly maintained and therefore we didn’t even […]
