The Civil War had been hard on everyone, but Celia Weston felt as if she personally had taken the brunt of it. Left alone on what had once been her family's beautiful estate, she had to scrimp and scrape just to survive, reduced to living like an animal while she tried to take care of her beloved mother, whose mind had been crippled by her great losses.

This is a rather dark look into the post Civil War south. Celia is torn between what is necessary to survive and what she has been raised to believe. Aaron sees in the dilapidated property a chance to build his own future. Initially Celia is just part of the deal and a chance to provide a little payback but her determination and commitment wins him over. Aaron has dark tastes that Celia discovers she craves. So join them on their journey and read the Spoils of War. You will not regret it.

I enjoyed many aspects of this book, however I do not feel it's her best work. The reader is left to make many assumptions about the character of Celia, but her behavior is contradictory. She's tough and capable (as proven by her ability to keep her mother and herself alive throughout the war), but somehow she's also soft and spoiled as a Southern belle.

The historical aspects of this book are well done, and the D/s and corporal punishment was believable.

A decent book overall.

Celia Watson was desperately trying to survive the Civil War. Her father and brothers were gone and likely weren’t coming back. Her mother had surrendered to dementia and needed constant care. And her home had long since been abused by passing enemy troops. Her days of debutante balls and fancy gowns had given way to basic survival and unsightly rags. But this new way of life surrendered to another the day Aaron Denehy captured Celia when she was out foraging for food.

Very good

This book kept my interest from start to finish, it was not as harsh as some reviews suggested. A sweet poignant love story. There were a lot of historical elements in the book concerning the plight of the South after the war. There was a lot of rebuilding going on and everyone was involved. There was a great ending.

I enjoyed this book but was disappointed when I found a whole chapter had been repeated!

The storyline was very good. The discipline was a little too heavy handed but it didn't take away my enjoyment of the book. I would have liked a slightly longer ending, it felt rushed and I wanted to learn Celia's thoughts and feelings. Even with a few problems I enjoyed this book very much.

In typical Carolyn Faulkner fashion this is one good historical romance with harsh discipline all the way thru it. Spoils of war is definitly not your typical romance but does have a HEA in the end.

This book would've gotten a higher rating from me, but the first sex scenes are definitely rape-y. That turned me off.
