What 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.

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?

A girl. A monk. An unthinkable sacrifice.
When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?
In a post-apocalyptic future, a girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.
After the troubles of his youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. Then he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. How can it possibly be right to leave a life of worship and service for human desire? And if he does leave, will the pressures from his past destroy him?
Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the Abbey. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything spirals out of her control. Everyone she’s ever loved has died. She can’t do that to him. But how can she walk away from the first place she’s truly belonged?
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. Is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?

Price : £2.99
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. That danger may be much closer to home than anyone suspects.
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?
Rachel 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.

Another Not Typical Day
On the blog tour for my last book, Thread of Hope, I wrote about a not-typical day in my life because there’s no such thing as a typical day. There still isn’t – so here’s another not-typical day.
One thing that isn’t typical about today is that there’s unlikely to be anyone but me around for most of the day. Usually my husband is in and out, and he often meets people here. Today he’s set off early to visit a friend for the day, and he’s got another appointment on the way home.
I start by putting the washing on – funny how you never run out of laundry! To be fair, this is mostly my stuff. I was at the gym last night and I need to wash my kit. And it’s sunny this morning, so I may even get to dry it on the line. Then I run through my morning emails. I’m subscribed to a number of book blogs and authors, many of which are in other time zones, so I usually wake up to a whole load of suggestions for new reads. I do look at all of them, but I have my favourite bloggers that I read in depth. Apart from those, there’s nothing I need to deal with.
I work as a freelance financial modeller, but two contracts have just finished and a third is dormant for the time being – that one will get busy next month. There’s stuff due from another client, but not until the end of the week, which means today can be devoted to my books and my writing. Before that, I go to Goodreads and record the books I’ve read this past week. I should have done that yesterday but I got carried away with my own writing. (You can follow me there at https://www.goodreads.com/goodreadscomracheljbonner)
I’ve a few more minor tasks to complete – letters to answer, that sort of thing – but pretty soon, I’m settling down to some writing. The first task today is to complete the acknowledgements section for Weave of Love. That’s the last thing I need to do before uploading it to the various digital distributors and then formatting it for paperback.
Oops! I ‘accidentally’ clicked into the file for Cloth of Grace, the fourth book in the series. When the clock says it’s lunchtime I’m surprised how fast the morning has gone. But I’ve made good progress on Cloth of Grace and now I’ll go and find something to eat.
Lunch over, I have a few more domestic chores but then it’s back to writing. And this time I will write that acknowledgement section. That done, it’s back to Cloth of Grace until my husband gets home and we eat our evening meal together.
This evening I’m out at my Bible Study group. We meet once a fortnight and it’s a great time. We’ve become friends and everyone is very enthusiastic and supportive about my books. They’re not best pleased about the cliff hangers though… But they are eagerly awaiting book 3, Weave of Love and I do share out some bookmarks featuring the cover.
I hope you enjoy Weave of Love too, (and the previous books in the series) as much as I have enjoyed writing them and continue with me to the end of the series.
