The Colonel's Lady

What is it about a guy with an foreign accent?  Why are they so appealing?!
Book rating: Best of the Best

I was immediately interested in reading this book when I learned it takes place during the Revolutionary War.  Go, America! The lovely leading lady, Roxanna goes to find her father in a remote fort in Kentucky and learns that he has been killed.  She has no other choice but to stay on at the fort, where her relationship with the Colonel, a rugged foreigner named Cassius McLinn, begins.  *Sigh *

There is a lot of mystery in this book and a whole lot of drama.  I loved the intrigue—the who-done-its and such, and it really keeps you coming back for more.

The overall story is truly wonderful.  At times I felt it was almost too dark—but that's just me.  There is some really fantastic romance though, and that always gets me to keep reading!  However I have to say that I was sad to see it end so quickly.  I really felt that I wanted more in the climax at the end….read it and tell me if you think so too.   I was left wanting.  If I hadn’t been so attached to the characters and such I don’t think I would have minded.  Although there is a nice little epilogue which soothed my drooping spirits a bit.

Overall?  A really good story!!  I would certainly read it again.

Happy Reading!


  1. I just finished this this weekend and I think this was my favorite of hers! I loved the story line and especially Colonel McLinn.....what a man, lol.

  2. I totally agree. I loved the ear--very cool--and McLinn was to die for!
