I am enjoying this series. It's fun, lots of action, witty, and romantic. Lots of newlywed stuff, but we don't hear about it, so it stays clean. In this book, Andrew and Gwen are married, and then she is kidnapped and held for ransome. I can't wait to read about RIchard and Charity in the next book.

I want to start off by saying that while each of these books can be read as standalone as each book is about different people, it would be much better if you read them in order. Gwen and Andrew both have been introduced in previous books and the previous characters' stories are continued on in a sense in the next books. Gwen and Andrew both have been in love with the other for years, however they keep avoiding the inevitable more on Andrew's side than Gwen. She is determined to capture Andrew's ...more

Fantastic love story that takes you back in time and makes you live it as though you are walking through the pages!
A wonderful read.

In addition to this book being a civil war time romance, there is also mystery and history involved. If you haven't read the books written previous to this one, you really need to do yourself a favor and read them. You will know more about the other characters in this book, friends of Gwendolyn and Andrew, some of who have come from the future, met each other and married, or married those they meet in the past where they are sent to stay. There is much more about the time travel in the previous ...more

There's probably nothing more painful in life than unrequited love. The attraction and long-standing love between Gwen and Andrew has been in the background of previous novels in this series and now it comes to a head. The pain and injury of war is threatening to injure these two lovers long-term, especially with the sense of personal honor that is so deeply imbedded in the masculine mind-set of the 19th century. Andrew is a victim of war injuries and his pride is causing him to maintain the dis ...more
Each new book in this sweet Civil War era Historical Romance series is always a source of anticipating for me because I'm eager to know which character(s) will get their romance next. In this case it is Andrew Simmonds and Gwendolyn Butler. This one was unique in the series because for the first time the hero and heroine weren't time travelers. They are recurring characters from other stories and their story has been given a bit more page time with each new book since their introduction. This se ...more

I was excited to finally get Gwen and Andrew’s story. Glimpses of them and their history were found in earlier books in the series, but this one is all about their love story. Again, Tracey does a fantastic job of establishing a deeper relationship between these two characters while continuing the story of the characters I grew to love in the first three books. I smiled, I laughed, I cried… Each book I read in this series, makes me want to pick up the next one. I was blessed that one of my new f ...more

I really enjoyed this book and getting to know new characters that I was not sure I was going to like in the story. She has a surprising way of making you fall in love with the characters.

I was wondering if we'd ever get to see what happens with Gwendolyn and Andrew. So glad we finally do. It's just as good as ever, despite no time travel.

Her love and passion for Abraham Lincoln and the entire Civil War era might have come from her American father, however, he lays no claim to influencing her. Tracey's mother used
