Reviews"This is the second installment of the Nobleman series. The first book introduced us to the characters and set the stage for bigger and better things to come. This book delivers on that promise. From the get go there is action and drama in this high stakes game of good versus evil and the consequences of the choices that are made throughout the novel. Ronda Caudill PhD has crafted characters that we continue to want to know more about and genuinely care about their well being. Congratulations on a job well done."
-Author MD Martin-
"Picking up shortly after the events of the first book in the series, Birthright, we're once again thrown Into the lives on Nila and Blake's life. Becoming comfortable with her life, Nila is once again thrust into a battle against a foe with the ability to control her will.
In a wonderful sequel in the series, Ronda Caudill weaves a web of realistic and enjoyable character interactions with the spiritual realm. The interactions between the characters draws you into their world and want to take part in their adventure.
I do have to say, there was a point where I wanted to reach out and shake Nila. I could tell you why, but then that would take away the fun of reading it yourself.
A fun and fast paced adventure, I recommend this to anyone interested in paranormal type of adventure and romance stories."
-Author CP Bialois-
"I must say that the author Ronda Caudill crafted an incredible action packed, suspenseful tale that kept me on the edge of the seat! The passion between the two main characters, the devotion and true love between Nila and Blake rivals the camps of Edward and Bella (Twilight Saga) and Elana and Stephan (Vampire Diaries).

Now Available on Amazon.com on kindle!!!!My new book, A Night At The Bishop House, a short story, is now available on Amazon.com.
Victoria Long is a typical young woman who lives in a typical town. What is not typical is the ghostly adventure that she is about to have. Victoria is forced to stay all night in the house she has avoided her entire life. That night at the Bishop House many things will be revealed.
"I enjoyed this short story, it was very reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe. Ronda Caudill continues to create interesting characters and story lines. I look forward to more works from this writer."
A Night at the Bishop’s House, was a perfect read for a rainy, dark day(which was the type of day it was, when I read this story:) A throwback to the Gothic novels that I used to love growing up, you know the ones, where the heroines, ended up in a old spooky house, either because they were the new governess or family members taken in by their estranged kin folk. I used to love not only the story line of those books, that authors such as Daphne du Maurier and Victoria Holt, to name a couple, but the atmospehere would be a major presence in the story. A Night at the Bishop’s House had that same quality!
The story followed Victoria May Long(see, she even has a great Gothic name! **see me squeal with excitement***). Victoria is basically roped into going to a office party which she doesn’t particulary enjoy. So after being there for what she believes is an appropriate amount of time, she leaves and makes her way home. That morning called for clear skies, and it was a clear night when leaving, and with her only living approx 3 miles from where the party was held, then there should not have been a problem. But once leaving and when she had not gone too far, Victoria runs into a storm of mega proportions, and the road that she usually takes home is closed, and she is forced to take the road by the abandon Bishop’s House, which for the majority of her life had terrified her, and that except for one or twice before, she has never gone near the house. So she is forced to go, and she believe if she can make it only those last few miles then she will be fine. But the storm becomes so intense, Victoria can barely see! Then of all things to happen, her car shuts down! Victoria, is terrified, she remains in her car for close to an hour, but eventually has no choice but to go in.
Once in the house Victoria, while simulatenously repulsed, frightened and also intrigued by the house; she is drawn in to a search and discovers the house’s secrets. Strange things happen, and she begins to see visions of the former inhabitants of the house, Sarah Bishop and her husband the handsome John Bishop. (I do not wish to spoil the story ) so, I will say that Victoria discovers a terrifying truth regarding who she really is, and that knowledge will change her life forever!
I truly enjoyed this novel, as I stated previously, it was a perfect throwback to those novels, similiar to the greats such as Victoria Holt and Daphne du Maurier! Ms. Caudill’s descriptions were so superb that it draws the reader into the story, the description of the house, made it almost a living, breathing entity, one that became a central character itself, and not simply the setting. My favorite scene, was when Victoria, was going down the long corridor(there HAS to be a long corridor in these great gothic tales, well any worth its salt!:O) Anyway,as she checked the multiple rooms, she would leave the door open, room, after room, but when she turned around the doors would be closed!
Awesomely creepy:) I enjoyed watching Victoria discover the secrets of the house and the startlung truth at the end! This is a wonderfully entertaining, hauntly fun read!

Nila Jones is forced to make a very important choice of how to live her life. Will Blake continue to be a part of that life?"Birthright was a story of discovery; Nila Jones like many young people was in the process of discovering who she was, and with that knowledge who she will become. Now Nila’s actual journey was little more in depth than a normal teen; because she had to remember a completely different life! I am a true romantic soul, and love soul mate sagas and this was no exception. I believe the story flowed, and the language regal and romantic. I believe that this is a wonderful debut novel and I look forward to other works by Ms. Caudill."

"There's a creativity here and an openness from author, Ronda L. Caudill that made me devour this book in just a couple of days because it was so intense! I kept finding out clues to each little mystery one-by-one and I loved that! I loved that there was some intrigue and excitement to this story."
"I feel that Ms. Caudill, a first-time author, gave a remarkably memorable first-impression. And, I can't help but feel like there is so much more to be revealed in future installments of this series. I'm really looking forward to it!"
