April Williamson’s heart calls her across the frontier, but only one man—a handsome army scout with a tormented past—can get her safely to freedom.

Daniel McKenzie was an army scout—quiet, capable, handsome…and utterly unwilling to be the trail guide April Williamson needed to reach Kentucky. The Indian attack at Blue Licks was but one bitter taste of the American frontier,

Full review can be found here.

The author weaves an interesting piece of historical fiction with many a nod to real people and events. Not being from the USA – and having left school in the UK before we touched on anything relating to non-European history (except Ancient Egypt) (and French history lessons were only interested in their own colonies) – I am only vaguely aware of these parts of American history. In fact, most of my knowledge about this period comes from documentaries / films (and wh

Hopefully you caught my review of Terry Irene Blain's Colorado Silver, Colorado Gold earlier this week. Well my dears, she has done is again with the delicious romance novel, Kentucky Green.

Set about a century before Colorado, Kentucky Green takes place in the 1790s. The story follows the lives of strong willed, widow, April and fronterisman Daniel.

Beginning in Philadelphia, the two meet when April requests passage on his wagon train to the property she has inherited in the Kentucky Territory.

Although taken to Philadelphia when her father was killed in an Indian attack at Blue Licks, she has been waiting her entire life to return home. Her only means of transportation is Dan McKenzie, an army scout who has a commission to carry supplies to the Kentucky frontier. Dan is apprehensive regarding taking April. Not only does he consider the trip too arduous, but he knows that when she learns the secret of his past, she ...more
I was ask to read this book as part of a blog tour. I admit that I wanted to read this book because it is about Kentucky. I have been a life-long resident of Kentucky and will never live anywhere else. Yes, in Kentucky we really do have a blue colored grass.

April lived in Kentucky her first 8 years of life. He father died in an attack near the area where they lived. After this her mother packed everything up and moved north. April has a dream of being back in Kentucky, to live on her land and su

I usually prefer my historical novels to be set in Europe, but something about the plot of this novel drew me in and I'm glad I read it. I really thought it would be a lot of cowboys and Indians, but it wasn't and I was totally thrilled to have the characters traveling through Pennsylvania to Pittsburgh, which just received its name in the year that this story takes place!

April is a very strong heroine, but not in an overpowering sort of way. She knows what she wants and she does everything in h

Are you looking for a light, summer romance with a historical, frontier flair? Let me recommend this book to you. It is short, sweet, and a nice, little story. And I really like the fact that the author backs up much of what she wrote with historical fact.

I enjoyed the two lovers, April and Dan. She is the strong, young frontier woman who holds a prejudice against Indians. And wouldn't you know that Dan is part-Indian and has another deep, dark secret she does not uncover until almost the end o

When two hearts meet that recognize each other how do you say no? Do you refuse to let them melt each other and end up spending your life alone or do you take a risk and jump in with both feet? April Williamson is bound and determined to make it all the way to Kentucky but she is thwarted at every turn until she meets Daniel McKenzie. McKenzie does not want to be the one to guide her all the way to Kentucky but ends up not having a choice. Now, they both find themselves on a journey that not ...more
Daniel McKenzie can handle racism, Indian attacks, and bitter enemies, but he's met his match in young April Williamson. April is determined to return to her family's land in the wilds of Kentucky, and Daniel is just as determined not to take her. In the midst of their growing romance is more danger than they anticipate. Not only do they have to travel through barely-charted territory, but Daniel has an enemy who won't give up until Daniel is defeated.

I loved reading about the early days of Ken

Ms. Blain writes this historical romance with strong, believable characters. The author's portrayal of this story is historically correct and I was amazed at how will it was written. Recommend for all who love a good historical romance.

This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

Blain has captured yet another great historical romance in this book. I enjoyed the love the characters showed for each other. I also liked the fact that it didn't turn out to be one of those "trashy" romance novels.
