I have a confession to make…

I love trashy romance novels. No, I am not your grandmother. I am actually a 17 year old male. No shame.
Okay actually a little shame, maybe a lot.

Lets go back to where it all began.
I am a broke teenager, and while I do love an occasional book buying splurge, I don't have the money to binge at Barnes & Noble all the time. Unfortunately, This conflicts with my love of buying, owning and reading books. My parents do not have the funds to support my slightly unhealth

This review is of “Passion’s Dawn” by Elaine Barbieri.

The Story: “Passion’s Dawn” is set in Vicksburg, Mississippi, during the Civil War. One of the citizens of Vicksburg affected by the war is Rheva Sinclair, 18, the heroine of the book.

Longworth House, however, is soon taken over by Union soldiers, led

Wonderful read! I didn't know what to think of this book when I chose it. I had a feeling it would just be some cheap historical romance but I was wrong! This was my first civil war romance and first book from this author... and lord, I was hooked! It's a real page turner. It doesn't concern only on romance, the author gives very detailed descriptions of the surroundings and circumstances, most importantly on the Union army's moves and tactics in the war.
The story starts in 1863, in the midst o

Well!!!!! I just finished the book. It was 476 pages... I loved the historical references, but what a dick. This guy was a real asshole. Spoiler alert... I was truly hoping she would either kill herself or kill him at the end. It did not happen. the writer did a overly through job in making me hate Jeff Banks, I loved Rheva, but in the end, she should have killed him. Did I say he was a dick? The book had some great parts and I could not put it down. I read it in one day. It is a lot of book ...more
