Today I’m super pleased to be on the blogtour, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources, to reveal the cover of

Cloth of Grace - Cover Reveal

But first some information

About the Author :

indexRachel J Bonner is the author of the compelling and enthralling four book Choices and Consequences series. The first book in the series, Strand of Faith, was published in November 2018. Book 2, Thread of Hope, released on 2nd May 2019, followed by Weave of Love on 24th October, and Cloth of Grace at the end of February 2020.
Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in fantasy or romance. Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun. When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club. Shooting targets only, honest. Nothing to worry about. (Okay, sometimes we shoot Polo mints. Or cabbages. Still nothing to worry about.)
She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary. It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.

Synopsis :

When the fate of the world rests on your shoulders, how do you choose between what you ought to do and the only thing you really want?
Leonie finally knows who she is. But now she needs to decide who she is going to be. Her choice will affect not just her family, not just those she knows, but tens, hundreds of thousands, millions of people that she doesn’t. And every path that’s open to her will put Perry under the pressures that caused his breakdown before. How can she do what she must and still protect Perry?
Perry desperately wants to make things easier for Leonie. Somehow he has to find the strength to face the things that all but destroyed him in the past. But every way he turns, some aspect of his past lies waiting to pounce – even during his happiest moments. And he can never forget that Leonie’s life is in danger from someone, somewhere.
Gabriel has managed to negotiate peace, at least in theory. Now he must put that into practice and reunite Leonie with the family she never knew she had. Then disaster strikes right in the middle of his own sanctuary. Can he still protect those he loves, or has he been harbouring a villain the whole time?

After this great teaser I hope you are still excited for the cover reveal, because this is happening

right now!

Synopsis :

9R5u38gwWhat if the choice you have to make has devastating consequences for others?
How can anyone know the right thing to do?

Leonie chose to sacrifice everything to save other people. Now those around her have to face the consequences – and those consequences are not what they expected.
Prospero must deal with his own guilt. He was the one who gave Leonie the tools she needed – her life was in his hands. To make the most of what she did, he will have to face up to all the family issues he has avoided for so long. Whatever he chooses to do, someone he loves will be hurt. For Leonie’s sake, is he now strong enough to make the choice he couldn’t make before?
The crisis predicted by Lord Gabriel has come and gone. But his task isn’t over. Leonie’s very existence may be out in the open but Gabriel discovers that the past is never what it seems – and nor is the present. How can he use what he now knows to bring together those who have been enemies for as long as anyone can remember? If he fails in this, everything he’s had to do so far will be in vain.

Friendship

My best girl friend and I met when we were three and we’re still friends more years later than either of us would like to count. At times we’ve worked together and been in touch every couple of days. Now we live hundreds of miles apart and there may be times where we don’t speak for months – but we can always pick things up exactly where we left off. If it wasn’t for her encouragement, my books wouldn’t be published – that’s why Weave of Love is dedicated to her.
If you read the dedications for the previous book in the series, Thread of Hope, you may have noticed that it was also in memory of my friend Ronnie. I’d only known him for a few years and we didn’t appear to have much in common. We were of different generations, different backgrounds, gender, education, experiences. All we really had were some shared tasks at church and a love of cricket (which we rarely talked about). And yet, we were friends. We could sit down together and chat; it didn’t have to be about anything in particular but we never ran out of conversation. And we helped each other with various tasks.
My husband was my friend before we started dating. Now he’s my best friend despite being married for more than thirty years.
Friendship is definitely a form of love, and the Choices and Consequences series is about friendship as much as about romantic love. One of the early reviews about Strand of Faith (Book 1 in the series) said:
“As for Prospero and Leonie, I really hoped that they could be friends and so much more. I just wanted things to work out for the two of them. Not necessarily as romantic partners but even just friends. Both clearly needed that.” J Bronder Book Reviews
I hope that, as I’ve carried on writing the series, I’ve shown that Prospero and Leonie become friends as much as lovers. And, as he meets them again, Prospero starts to repair his friendships with some of his past lovers too, showing the importance of dealing with issues which can drive people apart. If you’ve read Thread of Hope, you’ll have met one of his past lovers, Lesley. In Weave of Love you meet more, including both Melanie and Clare, so you can judge for yourself.
You’ll also meet Prospero’s brothers and cousins. Again, you’ll be able to judge for yourself but the way they pick up their relationships after a long separation suggests to me that they are friends as well as relatives. As someone says in Cloth of Grace (Book 4 so this is a sneak peek):
“All of them, all six brothers, they’re fiercely loyal to each other. They’d take on the world – or give it up – for each other, no matter if just a moment before they were at each other’s throats. And no matter if they haven’t seen each other for a decade, either.”
But no discussion of friendship and the Choices and Consequences series would be complete without mentioning Andrew. Andrew has strong feelings for Prospero, which everyone but Prospero knows. He’s learnt to manage them. As he explains to Leonie in Strand of Faith “We’re friends, we care about and support each other. It doesn’t need to be more.”
Slowly, Andrew also becomes friends with Leonie. Here’s the moment in Thread of Hope when he realises that (Perry is a nickname for Prospero):
He’d be there for her from now on if she needed him and he’d do his best to make sure Perry looked after her properly. Then he had something of an epiphany; this girl was getting what he’d thought for many years that he wanted – namely Perry – and not only was he not jealous of her, he was also thinking of her needs ahead of Perry’s.
I hope you enjoy reading this story of love and friendship in Weave of Love and in the previous books, and that you continue with me to the end of the series.

Synopsis :

_TNmsYV0The enthralling sequel to the compelling Strand of Faith.

What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?
Is honesty always the best policy?

Leonie may have run away but Prospero will find her. He loves her and he wants a future with her by his side whatever the consequences. Only when he does find her, he ought to tell her who he really is, outside the monastery. That’ll make her run again. Dare he risk it? But if he doesn’t tell her, someone else may…
Marriage to Prospero is what Leonie wants most and the one thing she knows she can’t have. If he found out what she was really like, what she’d been, what she’d done, he’d despise her and she couldn’t bear that. Better to leave now than live a lie – but it’s harder than she expected. If only…
Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie, secrets that not even she knows, secrets that will tear the world apart. And the secrets he is keeping are tearing him apart. How can sacrificing those he loves possibly achieve peace when everything he discovers risks the death of millions?

Clothing

I live in jeans, t-shirt and hoodie, as do many people. I’m fortunate in that I work from home, so that’s my work wear too, most of the time. It’s comfortable and practical, and it’s an outfit that can be dressed up or down, depending on your choices and personal style.
When I was developing the world of the Choices and Consequences series, I thought about clothing. It needed to be practical for both physical and sedentary work, and for travel, which is at a far more mediaeval level than our own world. I wanted it to be comfortable and broadly unisex, at least for everyday wear and it would need to be reasonably economical – my world has limited resources. So I settled on something that is basically jeans, t-shirt and hoodie.
It consists of trousers, which might be replaced by shorts in hot weather, a close fitting undershirt which can be long or short sleeved and then a warmer top or overtunic which again can be long or short sleeved, of varying length and may or may not have a hood. But there’s a lot of variety, based on colour, or fabric, or fit.
For the monks and nuns the trousers are straight cut in soft brown cotton. The undershirt is white, with either long or short sleeves, depending on weather and circumstances. The over tunic is hip length, brown and hooded again with either long, or no sleeves. For formal events the undershirt is long sleeved and the over tunic has no sleeves. Monks and nuns both tend to have short hair, but the nuns do not cover their heads.
For everyone else, there’s much more variety. Women tend to choose softer fabrics, brighter colours, and more close fitting designs often with a longer over tunic and more decoration but there’s no hard and fast rule about it. The overtunic might fasten back or front with buttons, buckles or zip or be a pull on style and might or might not have a hood. In hot weather, many will wear shorts and a short sleeved under shirt with no over tunic, or women might wear a short sleeved dress (slight gender bias there because I like summer dresses).
For formal wear, the colour, embellishment and material of trousers, undershirt and tunic will tend to be fancier and will often indicate the House the wearer belongs to. Each House has its own logo, and this will form part of the decoration on formal wear. For example, the logo of House St Peter is a crossed keys symbol – it’s incorporated in Leonie’s necklace and some of the clothes that Brother Edward makes for her. It’s also embroidered on the overtunics worn by all the monks and nuns.
Thread of Hope introduces House Tennant, where the signature colour is green, and the logo is a stylised castle with little castellations. Tennant’s the birth House of Prospero (Perry). In this extract towards the end of book 1, Strand of Faith, Brother Edward knows that…and Leonie doesn’t.

“Edward had brought me yet another new outfit and again he seemed to have woven some magic into it. This one was a shimmering emerald green silk which made my hair look redder than ever. There was no undershirt, just a short-sleeved tunic which fitted closely to my hips and then flared out, worn with matching leggings and ankle boots. The embroidery at the neck and hem line was in silver, little castellations like a picture book castle, interspersed with the cross keys of House St Peter. I found I was eagerly looking forward to wearing it, to Perry seeing me in it.
My hair was longer now, though still very curly, and Lady Eleanor came and styled it for me. She insisted I wore my necklace and bracelet too, even if the jewels weren’t the same colour as the dress. I looked in the mirror when she was done and thought I looked almost as grand, as beautiful as any of the ladies I’d seen at other Houses. “

Honesty is the best policy. Isn’t it?
What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?

Prospero is prepared to tell Leonie most of his past – if he can find her – but one of his secrets could send her running again. Another could destroy any future they might have. And one could kill her. Dare he risk it?
Leonie is terrified of the consequences of sharing any of her past with anyone. But not even Leonie knows the secrets that her very existence contains.
Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie and they could tear the world apart. Who does he turn to, and who should he share them with? If he tells the wrong person he could seal not just Leonie’s death warrant but those of millions more.
And no one has told Leonie the mystery of her necklace. When she discovers that, will she sacrifice everything and risk all that Gabriel has been working for?

Synopsis :

Front cover FaithWhen the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?
A girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But those from whom they expect support are manipulating them both because their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.
After a stormy youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. That is, until he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. To follow his heart, he’ll have to face his demons again, outside the security of the monastery. Is it worth the risk? Can he beat them this time? Or will they finally destroy him?
Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the abbey. All she wants is to learn how to manage her unusual abilities so that she is not a danger to those around her. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything threatens to spiral out of her control. Whether she leaves or whether she stays, how can she possibly avoid destroying – yet again – those she has come to care about?
Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. He knows what he has to do but is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?
