The past is the last thing on Rose's mind when she sets out to welcome the new Castellan to their castle. But it only takes a single look at the man who has come to be the new master of the castle before the past is all that she can think about. Because the man before her is one that she knows well. But will Connor even remember her, let alone care about their shared past? And even if he does, can anyone decide their future at the tender age of 8 years old? In Love, Ever Strong, Rose and Connor just might be the exception to the rule. And when it comes to the trials of running a castle, neither is prepared to back down in this story by Ronnda Eileen Henry.

Love, Ever Strong is the story of Rose and Connor who met when they were only children and spent several years growing up together. But when Connor comes to the castle where Rose has lived for over 10 years, neither is sure what to expect. Ronnda Eileen Henry has created a story of love and strength that transcends years and distance. In this beautifully written tale of two people who were lucky enough to meet their soulmate in the tender years of their youth, there's just the right amount of romance and love to keep anyone reading through to the end, and hoping for even more. This story is a great choice for anyone who loves a gorgeous love story.

Love, Ever Strong: A Romance Novella is an historical romance novella written by Ronnda Eileen Henry. In the ongoing conflicts between the regions of Selby, Tenby and Crozby, Tenbian lords waged battle against neighboring Selby, mounting a siege against two castles and razing the surrounding villages. Any villagers who survived were enslaved, and their former holdings were demolished. A monk came upon twenty small child survivors as he traveled through the ruins of those Selbian villages on his way to his monastery. As he proceeded, he was able to find homes for all but six of them in the villages he passed through. Old Grayam of Tosside was in the final town where the monk found homes for all but two of the children. One was a little girl who was only two years old and the other a ten-year-old boy. Old Grayam decided to take them both and share his home with them. The three of them became a family, with Rose and Conor forging a bond that would survive their eventual separation six years later when Conor entered the King’s service. Twenty years later, their paths were destined to cross again.

Ronnda Eileen Henry’s historical romance novella, Love, Ever Strong: A Romance Novella, is a sweet and memorable romance about two child survivors of military conflict who find each other after decades spent apart. Henry deftly builds the courtly world that the adult Rose and Conor find themselves a part of, complete with palace intrigues and battles for dominance, and counters it most wonderfully with that simpler life their parents enjoyed before disaster struck and that Old Grayam gave them as they were growing up. As with her other historical novellas, it’s quite easy to immerse yourself in Henry’s alternate world and time period, which has a distinctly Arthurian feel to it. Her characters are well-defined and memorable, and her romances flow beautifully. Love, Ever Strong: A Romance Novella is most highly recommended.
