    This is a super sweet book. Literally that is the main thing I can say about it. It was a perfect read when I was looking to just relax on a hot summer day.

    This is a novella, meaning it is shorter than a novel but longer than a short story—so right in between! But it still made me want to turn the pages so fast. I didn’t want to stop reading. Jody has a way of pulling readers into the story, which makes the story come alive. I love it.

    I cannot wait to read the next three books in this series. Like this one is just so great I am sure the others will be just as amazing.

    The cover is beautiful. I really like it. It adds the “princess” into the story of adventure. 5 stars to whoever designed this cover.

    As for the story, you can guess how many stars I am giving it. It deserves 5 stars. I would recommend this book to any readers who enjoy adventure and romance, mixed with a little mystery.

    I am a longtime fan of Author Jody Hedlund, and I can’t believe I had never read one of the books in her Young Adult genre. I realize after enjoying Always I have been missing some excellent reading. The author’s research into medieval times is meticulous and the descriptions were so real. A definite page-turner! I think it is suitable for both Young Adults as well as adults. It’s a good, clean romance and who doesn’t enjoy a story about princesses and strong, handsome knights in shining armor.

    Words cannot express how excited I am for Jody Hedlund's new YA series. I absolutely adored her last one. And with this novella this series is already off to a great start.

    This story has everything: adventure, romance, cute little babies, and sassy nuns. I must admit that I have not read a straight up romance for a while so it took some time for me to become readjusted to the genre. It was a little abrupt at first but it is a novella so that is a given. The detail was rich and the world building

It was a little abrupt at first but it is a novella so that is a given. The detail was rich and the world building created a unique story world. Felicia and Lance were such a cute unlikely couples. I have a secret weakness for Elite Guards, so there is also that *totally wasn't crushing on Lance just for the fact that he was an Elite Guard*

    I cannot wait to read the princess's individual stories.

    I was provided a ARC from the author, all opinions, however are my own.

Lance and Felicia have no trust for the other, but they are thrust together to save three small lives and outwit their pursuers.

    I have long been a fan of Jody Hedlund; since her first book, I've been determined to read everything she writes. She is a very good author, but she totally shines in her medieval offerings. It is my favorite time period to read and she is amazing at it. I loved every single minute of this one. Highly recommended. Now I must dash to read the next novel behind this one.

    *My thanks to the publisher and author for a preview copy of this book. My opinions stated here are completely my own.

    O my! This novella is the stuff my dreams are made of! “Always” is the novella which is the prequel to Jody Hedlund’s new series entitled “The Lost Princesses.” So why did I love it so much?

I love that it is clean and it is a great book to give to teens that are looking for an amazing read (but it seems adults love it too)! Ms. Hedlund sets up a world that I can’t wait to return to in order to read more about these princesses and their respective stories!

    Content: This is a clean read.

    Rating: I give this book 5 stars.

    This is a great novella for introducing us to the backstory of the three lost princesses in Jody Hedlund's exciting new YA series! The reader is thrust into the action which never slows down- danger is nipping at the heels of Lance and Felicia throughout the story which gives it a quick, suspenseful pace. The world-building is vivid and I felt like I got a good sense of the setting as well as the dynamic of the kingdom, its people, and its enemies. The author skillfully weaves in character devel

The world-building is vivid and I felt like I got a good sense of the setting as well as the dynamic of the kingdom, its people, and its enemies. The author skillfully weaves in character development and I felt invested in the fate of these selfless people who sacrifice for their kingdom. Lance's awakening of feeling for Felicia was sweet and I admired his fortitude over the years of denying himself. It makes their budding romance a little rocky, though, since he's not used to allowing himself any emotional connection to a woman. Felicia recognizes the noble qualities he has and appreciates the action he takes to protect her and the princesses. Their falling in love was only natural and I enjoyed the special moments they share. I'm so excited to read the books in this series!

    Loved this book so much!! I stayed up all night even though I was still tired from my trip to Michigan!

    The story was delightful and so many adventures!! I was kept on the edge of my seat and holding my breath to see what happens next!! Jody does have that effect on us.

    That's what I love about her writings.

    With God all things are possible. All we need to do is ask!!

    Trouble is, a lot of people myself included think they can do it all on their own. At some point and time we're all going to need devine intervention from the Lord to help us out.

    I'm thinking that Lance finally figures this one out. I had a feeling it was going to take something drastic to make him see.

    I think my favorite is Felicity. She's brave, strong, caring and can adjust to certain situations if need be. That's my kind of lady.

    I love being kept up late into the evening and then cry bc my adventure is over!!

    Well done Jody Hedlund!!!

    I strongly recommend this book.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. No compensations were received and all opinions are my own!!

    I ADORED this novella! I can't say that I read a ton of novellas, but of the ones I have read, not many have felt this rich, romantic, and action-packed...and with such fully fleshed out characters, too! And Jody Hedlund perfectly sets up her new series--I can't wait to read more! Meanwhile, I'm going to go back and read her other YA series (the Noble Knights series) because how in the world have I not read them yet? :)

    Prequel novellas seem to be the "in" thing lately. Sometimes, these novellas are just a fun "extra" ... and other times, they're vital to the story. Always is definitely the latter, as it introduces the three Lost Princesses and explains how they came to be lost.

    Always is the story of Lady Felicia and Lance, a member of the king's guard, who escape the castle with the three princesses once new king Ethelwulf overtakes the throne. They're reluctant to work together at first (especially Lance), but they soon come to depend on each other as they flee with a three-year-old and twin infants.

    The action is fast and furious; the romance aspect (between Felicia and Lance, of course) doesn't hit until at least the halfway point. I'm always all about the romance, and so that's the point in the novella when it became "unputdownable" for me. I loved Felicia and Lance together, and I hope that we'll get to see them again in the series. (Based on how the novella ended, we should; but, of course, there are no guarantees.)

    This novella wonderfully sets up the Lost Princesses series, and I'm very eager to dive into Evermore, which releases at the end of the month.

    Disclosure of material connection: I received this book for review. I was not required to write a positive review, and the opinions expressed are my own.

    This is the first young adult novel I've read by this author and I can see I've been missing out. Geared toward teens, as an adult I enjoyed it a lot myself and I also enjoyed that it was a clean read.
