Bound and Determined COVER REVEAL


*everyone gives me weird looks*

*cough* Okay lemme back up. So Bound and Determined is the third book in this Christian historical romance series by one of my best friends and twin sister for life Grace A. Johnson. so I think I am allowed to be insanely excited. Anyway, since I finished book two (and it’s cruel ending *glares at Gracie*) I have been SO STOKED for this book’s release.

Oh and did I mention it was about PIRATES!

And y’all lemme just say the cover doesn’t help with the excitement. It’s awesome. The book’s awesome. Xavier and Julius in the book are awesome!

Which if you haven’t read the first two books you’re probably sitting over there like who in the world am I talking about. Only two of my many fictional crushes. *pouts because one of them is already married* 

I know I have issues. 

Oh why don’t I just stop rambling and share the cover? I feel like I’ve already lost half of y’all by now. XD Ready for the cover? Of course you are.


Dee blurb! *suddenly realizes I’ve never even read the blurb for this book* It’s rare that I read a book blurb. I’ll buy a book for the cover alone and never even glance at the blurb until I’m halfway into the book. XD So I’m reading the blurb for the first time as all of you!!!

Port Royal, Jamaica


A wicked twist of fate—or perhaps the hand of God—has landed Captain Rina Bennet in the most precarious situation yet. When her husband and the father of her twin boys leaves at the behest of a family friend, she is left to take charge of the ship she has not sailed on in two years, alongside her two toddlers. She finds herself between a rock and a hard place when her first voyage drastically turns into a rescue mission, leaving her to the ghosts of her old life.

Daisy Sharow has risked it all by escaping from her owner’s tavern in search of her sister. Following God’s direction, she seeks out the only person she trusts to help her: Keaton Clarke. When Daisy stows away aboard the Rina, quartermaster Keaton is faced with a ghost from his past and a decision neither he nor Rina are prepared to make.

Rina has to make a judgment call when the ghosts come knocking, a call that could mean either life or death—for both an innocent girl and herself. Can Daisy, Keaton, and Rina band together to save Daisy’s sister…or is the risk too great?

Oh my goodness, y’all that blurb DOES sound good. Why do I wait so long to read these things? 

I’m sure you’re ready for the cover now but I have something BETTER. The link to the goodreads page so you can add more books to your probably extremely long and overflowing TBR. No need to thank me. *smirks*

‘Nuff chit-chat. Time to begin scrolling for the moment you’ve ALL been waiting for…


Ah I forgot how much I enjoyed doing these things.

It’s been too long. ;P

Lemme know in the comments who noticed that I was ONLY using Pirates of the Carribean GIFs today. 

Alright I think y’all’ve waited long enough.





Y’all just take all the time you need to stare in awe over this thing. I’ll go ahead and share the author bio and author links while I wait. 😉

And shout-out goes to Saraina’s post of which I copied and pasted all the information. This time, it wasn’t due to laziness since my email is technically opened right now (which is a first XD) but I think I enjoy the copying and pasting too much. XDD

Until the next post,

Keep on being awesome and never stop writing,
