Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Dorothy Garlock was the first ever romance books I read, I was in 9th grade. They have stayed in my memory as great reads. Two series stick out in my memory, the Wind series and the River series. I found them for my kindle and am going to re-read them and see if they are still as magical as way back then

i really did like this book. it was suspensful at times and creative in others. but i knew what was gonna happen next after the first few sentences of the chapters. in all honesty, it wasnt a "have to read" it was a good read

I am so happy I found this book!! This book I finished within two days..... I wish it never ended!! This is prob. the oldest of the books I have read... most of the ones i read are 1800s to late 1800s. this book took place in the late 1700's and its not the typical western I am used to reading. I am very interested in more books like this and can't wait to discover more from this Author!

Loved this book!! From beginning to end I did not know what to expect next. This book had everything to give: suspense, romance, the right amount of angst, and plenty of drama. Once I started the book I did not want to put it down. A great read! One that I would not hesitate to read again.
Frontier orphan girl is thrown in with a French trapper. Danger from Indians, nature, a mad woman and rough frontiersmen ensues along with their romance.

Read this one a long time ago. I was in mood to re-read it. I don't read historical romances as much anymore.
