The Irish are hardheaded so Elspeth Hamilton doesn't like them. The Mexicans are hotheaded so likewise, she doesn't think much of them either. Since Rebels burned her family home, killing both her parents in the Chambersburg, Pennsylvania fire, it stands to reason she surely doesn't waste affection on Rebels. Colum Sullivan is all three: Irish, Mexican and Rebel. It would ...more

I read this book as part of the year without a duke challenge.

Before starting Absolution, I was intrigued by the concept behind it. I know enough about that period of history to know that the differences between the two main characters would make a romance tough. It was. However, despite the difference of their heritage and the ugliness of supporting different sides of the Civil War, at heart both characters are very much alike and they both see things in the other they admire and that draws the

Wonderful story!!

I love stories where women are strong no matter what era the book is written in. Ellie is a great character. Strong, independent thinking and full of spirit. Culen is the same way. She is a northerner and he is a southerner right after Civil war. And sparks fly! I loved this story!

Reminds me of myself(mostly when I was alot yonger) when I used to argue for the fun of it. Good verbal sparing.
*note, perhaps a little suggetive, but no bedroom scenes. A good way to put is flirty*

This was a really well written story and I couldn't put it down. I loved all the characters including the bad guys.

It was a cute book. I loved this story. It was refreshing and once again I love the spunk of Carolyn Brown's characters.

Recommends it for: romance lovers
This book has a great story, however it's a little slow. The author takes a long time getting from one point to the next. Very clean and romantic tho. I loved it and would read it again.

Hi! I'm twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous. The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles. Can't trust those cameras or mirrors either. Along with bathroom scales they are notorious liars! Honestly, I am the mother of three fantastic grown children who've made me laugh and given me more story ideas than I could ever write. My husband, Charles, is my strongest supporter and my ...more
