Reviews A Loyal Heart (An Uncertain Choice, #4)

  • Nicki Chapelway
    So... where to even begin? Honestly I loved this book so much. I loved this whole series, really, and I was so sad to think that the last book would have been the last in the series. So of course I asked for another one. I wasn't sure anything would come of it, but then she DID IT! Jody Hedlund wrote another. I was ecstatic. I sort of felt like she wrote this book for me even though she said she had multiple people asking for another book*Now wit...

    Jody Hedlund OWNS Historical Romance for me! This whole series has been breathtaking and the characters are ones who are timeless. Aldric and Olivia are characters brought together in unusual circumstances but find that love, true love is worth fighting for..regardless of station. Thank you Mrs. Hedlund for writing and sharing your gift with all.

    “A Loyal Heart” by Jody Hedlund is a book I could not put down! This is the fourth book in the “An Uncertain Choice” series. I have read and loved all of the books in this series, but one can definitely read this book as a standalone. This book may just be my favorite one out of the series!What makes this book so great? Well first of all, it includes knights and a kick-butt heroine during the medieval time period! Ms. Hedlund has awesome ...

    A Loyal Heart is the fourth (and final?) book in Jody Hedlund’s medieval young adult series, and out of the bunch, it is also my favorite. I found the plot to be the most realistic and the characters to be the most relatable. Olivia’s character arc drew me in. She is a strong character, both physically and mentally, but it never seemed out of context for the time – as in, she isn’t suddenly stronger and faster than knights who were larger...
  • Micaiah Saldaña
    This was a wonderful addition to Jody Hedlund's medieval YA series! This is one of my favorites out of the whole series. The plot was clever, the characters spot-on, and the setting of knights and castles as rich and vivid as ever. This is a fun weekend read that I would suggest to any fans of historical romance. =)
  • Carrie Schmidt (Reading is My SuperPower)
    After reading the book previous to this one in the series – For Love and Honor – I was drawn to Aldric (Sir Bennet’s brother) and was hoping that someday Jody Hedlund would give us his story. And what a fabulous story it is!Olivia and Aldric are fabulously drawn characters, and the alternating first person POV between them allows us to know them more personally over the course of the story. Aldric has made many mistakes (while you don’t h...
  • Elizabeth Dragina
    Again Jody Hedlund has captured meHow can she come up with books this good!? This fifth book in her series "An Uncertain Choice" is as captivating as the first four! Her way of writing is unique! The characters start off knowing they shouldn't or can't love each other, then come to find out they do in devastating situations where one or the other is about to die! This book ( like the first four ) made me not want to stop reading until I finished ...
  • Amy
    A Loyal Heart is the fourth installment from Jody Hedlund’s series, An Uncertain Choice. I have enjoyed this series, but this one is by far my favorite to date. This is a young adult historical romance that should not be missed! It is a delightful page turner, full of intrigue, adventure and action. I was captivated with the story throughout. I give A Loyal Heart 5 plus stars and I highly recommend it. Well done, Jody Hedlund, we done!I receive...
  • Brittany
    This story is absolutely fantastic! I also just adore the breathtaking cover. A Loyal Heart is the fourth book in the An Uncertain Choice series, however, it can be read as a stand alone novel.The two main characters, Olivia and Aldric, are up there with some of my favorites of all time. They are both so brave and valiant. Aldric reveals his true and honorable nature in the way he treats Lady Olivia. He also demands that the other knights behave ...
  • Rachael
    I own all of this authors YA books in PB, but THIS one really stands out to me as a favorite! I read this in one sitting and so enjoyed it. It reminds me of a movie that tries to prove chivalry isn’t dead. The men in the book treat women with respect no matter what the circumstances. The main female lead is strong, and I really liked her character and personality! Things like morals, chaperones, proper actions were all a terrific part of this Y...
  • Kara
    When I found out there was a Book 4 to this series, I knew I HAD to get a copy! The cover is so amazing and the story captivated me from the beginning. I truly loved Olivia's heart and this is her journey with Aldric. It was a pleasure to read how they go from enemies to respecting one another, to becoming friends and protecting one another to falling in love. This one is probably my favorite book of the series although I have enjoyed each of the...
  • Lori
    A wonderful tale of knights, castles and action adventure all rolled into one.Im a huge fan of Jodys! I especially love her historical fiction and my favorite was Newton and Polly.Luther and Katharina came in second. I wasn't sure that I would like something like this.However; I was pleasantly surprised by the awesome characters! I wasn't happy that Olivia got sold into a marriage that she didn't really want. Greed is like jealousy. It's evil and...
  • Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
    Love These Characters!I love this series. Each book can stand alone but I was happy to see characters from previous books make an appearance. I loved the characters this story. So much. Honorable, kind, strong. The best kind of heroes.

    swoon... OK I am a sucker for the "I hate you but then I fell in love with you" trope... it makes for some great banter and fun and I loved this! Head over to my channel for a full video review! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GUwL...
  • MJSH
    Ah. Jody Hedlund. Need I say more?I actually have not read the other three books in this series but did not feel I missed out on anything. Some of the characters from the previous books make cameo appearances and I will absolutely have to go back to read their stories, but this book works well as a stand-alone. It is an incredible journey through 1392 as knights and lords wage battles for control of land, wealth, and allegiance to the king of Eng...
  • Caitlyn Santi
    I have been loving Jody's Medieval YA books, and I was very excited when I learned there would be a fourth book in the series! Aldric was a very intriguing character in the previous book, and it was so interesting to get to know him and see him overcome the pain and mistakes of his past! I loved Olivia, her personality is so much like me, we are both strong, stubborn, and independent, yet fiercely loyal to and protective of those we love! It was ...
  • Minni Mouse
    Aww, that was sweet. And darling.
  • Jessica Baker (A Baker's Perspective)
    The cover of a book is always something that grabs my attention, whether good or bad. This cover really set the tone for the book - a strong minded heroine who looks ready to take on any battle. And that is exactly what her character was. Lady Olivia was strong, fierce, and wasn't afraid to stand on her own. Loyal to a fault she was prepared to fight for her family, and was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to save them - herself. Throughout...
  • Susan Snodgrass
    'Where would the wrongdoing stop if everyone acted out whatever moral code felt right in the moment?'This one is my favorite in Jody Hedlund's 'An Uncertain Choice' series. The medieval time period is my favorite era for books and Hedlund does it well. Lady Olivia, taught by her father's loyal retainer to fight as a knight would fight, she is determined that she will never be bent by any man's wishes because she is female. Honor means everything ...

    Book four in Jody Hedlund’s An Uncertain Choice medieval, young adult, historical romance, series, A Loyal Heart, is a fun adventure and an absolute delight to read from cover to cover. It is filled with wonderful and exciting characters, plenty of action and escapade, and of course an endearing love story. From page one, this is an exciting and fun story that readers will not want to put down. Hedlund has a way with storytelling that draws rea...

    He’s taken her as his prisoner. But she’s holding his heart captive. In gaining their freedom, will they lose what matters most?A Loyal Heart, by Jody Hedlund, is book 4 in the An Uncertain Heart series, but serves perfectly as a standalone. Ms. Hedlund's writing drew me in quickly with lots of action, tenacity, and threats of danger. Straightaway, I sympathized with Lady Olivia, as well as Sir Aldric, even though he initially posed danger fo...
  • Bree
    WowI never imagined when I began the journey into this story that I would be so taken with the story. It will leave your breathless, hopeful and is an excellent reminder of the quality writing the author always delivers. This is by far the best book in my opinion and I truly didn't want the adventure to end.
  • Nicole
    I adore anything written by Jody Hedlund. She is an amazing storyteller, and I devour her books. I must confess though, A Loyal Heart is the first of her YA novels that I have read. I spend ALL day with teenagers. From 6:45 am – 3:30 pm (and sometimes even later), I am entrenched in all things AP Lit and English 9 Honors and teenagers. So, when I read for fun, I tend to stay as far away from YA things as possible. But, I’m definitely going to...

    Lady Olivia wants to please her father and make an advantageous match, but when their stronghold is invaded and she and her sister, Izzy, are taken captive by Lord Pitt's right hand man, Sir Alric. So when her father asks her to steal a relic from their enemy, she is determined to be loyal to her family and complete the mission. But when Alric steps up to protect her from death, she wonders if there is more to the gallant knight than she first be...
  • Fizzy
    When I heard through the grapevine that there was going to be another book in the Uncertain Choices series I was positively gleeful. I had a small hope that it was to be Aldric’s story. As more information trickled my way I was over the moon to discover that Aldric’s story would be continued! He was a man of great flaws and yet also a man of great valor. Realizing his errors he set out to remedy them at the end of ‘For Love and Honor‘. An...
  • Gail Hollingsworth
    Another wonderful tale of knights, castles, conflict, dungeons and war by Jody Hedlund. I wasn't sure at the beginning if I would enjoy these stories of this particular time period but this is at least the fourth one I've read and it's just as good as the first if not better. The year is in the 1390s and there are those that support the king and those that are opposed. Olivia is totally devoted to her father who is in the camp of opposing the kin...
  • Deana Dick
    I have visions of a knight with armor on a white horse galloping across the pages as I read this adventurous story. The author glistens the scenes with dungeons, knights, ladies in waiting and Lords that oversee castles and surrounding lands. I stepped back in time to an era that is filled with intrigue and characters that jump off the pages. Lady Olivia is a beautiful young woman with fiery red hair and eyes like emeralds. She sure did surprise ...

    "For the first time in my life, I'd met a man who neither feared me nor bowed to my wishes. And I liked it."Lady Olivia is captivating, but extensive training with the sword has made her surprisingly lethal. When her castle residence is infiltrated by enemy soldiers, Olivia fights with strength and valor to protect her younger sister, only to admit that she is no match for Lord Pitt's captain of the guard. Taken captive, Olivia determines to find...

    Full post here: http://www.overweightbookshelf.com/20...Remember that scene from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves when Robin is beset upon by a knight in Maid Marian's house who turns out to be, well, Marian? Arguably one of the best strong heroine moments from a medieval period movie, that just happens to be mirrored in the opening chapters of A Lonely Heart. Jody Hedlund had me hooked the instant Lady Olivia threw herself into the melee to protect...
