DNF -- I just don't like these as much as I used to. And the combination of Big Mis and "I hate you/I love you/I'll give you the silent treatment" was just too much for me.

Love in Louisiana in 1814 as the Battle of New Orleans Approaches!

I love Shirlee Busbee’s romances because I know I’m going to diving into a deep story, one with rich details in the descriptions of places, people, food and history, woven together like a tapestry, providing a great background for her captivating love stories. This one is no different. Her seventh novel, it tells an intriguing tale of love in the time of the War of 1812 (“Madison’s War”).

Although the whole idea of the story is beautiful and I am fascinated with Melissa & Dominic,.. I can't help but think that some parts of the story are happening in a slow motion because of the elaborated and sometimes unnecessary description of 'everything' which I also sometimes find a little bit boring. But it is a good story though :)

Bon, dans le genre romances, y a mieux.... et y a pire aussi ! Bref, un roman sympathique mais pas inoubliable. Et puis l'héroïne est un peu trop nunuche à mon goût. Bon, ça m'aura procuré un moment de détente, c'est déjà ça ! ;-)

Not as good as the 1st book in the series but i still liked it. The usual big mis-understanding non communication.

The one negative thing about this book are the grammar mistakes.
Macaron
quite disappointing. Expected something better for Dominic Slade. Farfetched twists in the plot, improbable situations.

Creo que es por la traduccion que no me gusta... Le resta bastante
