Will she find suitable mates for her family? Will the fires burn into a steamy romance for Brette and Heath? Will she become a bride at last? Open the book to find out!
Collette Caneron’s writing is out of this world, she draws the reader in from the first few sentences and captures their interest and attention all the way through to the last word. Her characterization is very detailed and each character, no matter how miner, has their own unique personality and traits. She sets the scene in each phase of the book with such depth and attention to visual and historical accent where the reader truly feels they are there. Her phrasing and use of historical language of the day is supburb. She just draws the reader into the time period.. And gives them a real sense of what life was like for her characters. A wonderful book and one you want to read again and again!
