I enjoyed a lot about this book. The characters are interesting and believable, the setting is beautifully written, and the writing is good. The ending, however, fell apart for me. That could very well be just a personal preference, so I’m still giving it a solid three stars, because others may love the ending.

This book has moldered in my Kindle for years – literally – and I finally opened it. So glad I did! I enjoy stories about midwives, and this one didn’t disappoint. Set shortly after the Revolutionary War, it’s full of angst and distrust between the Americans and the British with the British Navy stealing American men and pressing them into service to the Crown. Good story!
Classic Robin Patchen! Plenty of unexpected things happen when an ex-con and an artist team up – accidentally – to bring down a murderer. Loved the characters in this one. He’s broody and temperamental, the quintessential artist. She’s independent and insecure, an interesting combination. Together, they’ll keep you turning the pages.
I don’t know why it took me so long to read a book by Lori Benton. But I’m glad I finally did! This story is a rich tapestry of the era peopled with characters who will draw you into their world. Benton does a very credible job – and it’s a difficult one – of balancing the relationship between white settlers and natives. Too many authors want to make the former all evil and the latter all saints. Benton didn’t do that. Her characters are all true-to-life with warts and all. That’s what makes it easy to slip into sync with them as you read. I highly recommend this on to all readers who enjoy historical romance at its best.
A fascinating and engaging story about a historic time and place that isn’t often showcased in fiction. I was captivated by the characters from the very start. The lifestyle of the Moravians is something I knew just a little about. Their interaction with the natives – both positive and negative – kept me reading until late into the night. And – of course – the romance didn’t hurt either!
What’s better than a book with a handsome cowboy for the hero? A collection of four stories with four handsome cowboy heroes! These stories will tug at your heart and give you a chuckle before leaving you with that satisfied *awww…* ending. Most importantly … did I mention the handsome cowboy heroes?! Written by four of my favorite authors is a nice plus as well.
I wasn’t sure how the author was going to take the “bad boy” of book #2 and make him the hero of book #3 … but she nailed it! What a great end to this trilogy. Two emotionally wounded people who are drawn together against their will only to be torn apart when the unimaginable happens. Plenty of twists and turns and just the right amount of sighs. Highly recommend this one – but read The Deepest Sigh and The Softest Breath first!
