June 2019 New Releases

June is all about historical romance here at Bethany House, but what a wide variety of fun stories we have for you! (And some beautiful covers, as well.) Take a look at all four of these new releases, and if you’d like to read more, click on the covers to read an excerpt.

A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund

The Bride Ships #1

Plot Summary: After facing desperate heartache and loss, Mercy agrees to escape a bleak future in London and join a bride ship. Wealthy and titled, Joseph leaves home and takes to the sea as the ship’s surgeon to escape the pain of losing his family. He has no intention of settling down, but when Mercy becomes his assistant, they must fight against a forbidden love.


The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White

The Codebreakers #1

Plot Summary: In the midst of the Great War, Margot De Wilde spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But after a sudden loss, her world is turned upside down. Lieutenant Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by a destructive enemy. Immediately smitten with Margot, how can Drake convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?


Wherever You Go by Tracie Peterson

Brookstone Brides #2

Plot Summary: Mary is one of the best sharpshooters in the country, but unless the man who killed her brother is brought to justice, her accomplishments seem hollow. Journalist Christopher is covering her show, and he is immediately captivated by Mary—but getting close to someone would threaten to bring his past to light. Can they find healing from the past together?

More Than Words Can Say by Karen Witemeyer

Plot Summary: After being railroaded by the city council, Abby needs a man’s name on her bakery’s deed, and a man she can control—not the stoic lumberman Zacharias, who always seems to exude silent confidence. She can’t even control her pulse when she’s around him. But as trust grows between them, she finds she wants more than his rescue. She wants his heart.


Which of these eras would you be most interested in actually living in?

  1. Having read three of the four, I would pick the Era of The Number of Love. There were some modern conveniences but it was an intriguing time.

  2. Ok, believe it or not, I’ve never read a Jody Hedlund book. How is that even possible?! As for the era I’d live in, I’d have to go with Wherever You Go!

  3. I read More Than Words Can Say and I would love to live in that Era. I am currently reading The Number Of Love and will be reading a Reluctant Bride next. I love reading and reviewing all the books that come from Bethany. Thank you for publishing these authors, they are all amazing!

    • I’m so glad you’re enjoying the books, Shonda! And I’d live in the world of More Than Words Can Say if I could eat goodies from that bakery…

  4. I would love to live in More Than Words Can Say! I just finished reading it and I love the town and the people and I loved the characters so I would love to meet them! The western period of the US “eras” has always been my favorite time period to read!
