Review/Author Spotlight/Giveaway: Washed Under the Waves (Children of the King #1) by Gloria Clover
A hidden island. A prince in disguise…and a lady torn between love and duty. Lady Tayte Bashan never desired the distinctive black hair that marks her as Undae royalty, but when her family perishes in a devastating tsunami, the burden of leadership falls upon her young shoulders. Even as she prepares her island for the prophesied prince, she fears the duty to marry him is truly meant for another. Dispatched by the King to an island untouched by the outside world for centuries, Prince Geoffrey Athan D’Ambrose must lead its people to the ultimate truth. But how is he supposed to win the heart of Undae’s princess when the King sends him disguised as a tutor? Betrayal stirs within Castle Bashan, a threat as deadly as the rising wave. Now Tayte and Athan must brave the maelstrom or watch as the entire island succumbs to treachery’s destructive tide.

Washed Under the Waves is book one from Gloria Clover’s series, Children of the King. It is somewhat out of my usual genre that I read. I am so glad I went outside of my comfort zone and gave it a try. I loved it. The story is beautifully written and is full of faith and inspiration. It is one that really makes a reader stop and think. Such a refreshing read.
I cannot wait to read the next book in the Children of the King series.
I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
