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.
