I enjoyed this one. As always I get the last in the series and read it first!! But this one has me wanting the other 2 that preceded it.

Crista stayed home during the Civil War and fought to keep her home safe while her brothers fought on different sides to keep the Union whole. But after the war is over Daniel and Jesse are in Washington and Richmond helping with the aftermath. Crista's ancesteral home is under the gun, literally, on forclosure fromt he Yankee carpet-baggers. In steps Colonel Je
Rating: 5 out of 5.

This novel was AH-MAZING. And I knew it was going to be. This was why I left it till the end, because I wanted a brilliant finish to my ARC reading of Heather Graham.

This is the story of Christa Cameron and Jeremy McCauley.

Like the 2 other couples previous to them, these two are from two sides of the war. Except the war has ended and people are uniting to rebuild the nation.

A little insulated from this rebuilding attempt, Christa is still putting her heart and soul into the Ca
#3 in "rode" series. This is the story of Christa Cameron, the younger sister of Daniel and Jessie. The civil war is basically over. Someone wants Cameron Hall to burn and in order for Christa to save it, she must marry a Rebel. (Her brothers and their families are not there to clear up the ownership of Cameron Hall and she only has hours to save it) Sooo, she marries her sister-in-law's brother who has just showed up for a short visit, Rebel Jeremy McCauley. He is staying in the calvary and get ...more

Maybe it's just me, but each book in this trilogy was just a little less good than the one before.
One of the reviewers had it right, Jeremy and Christa argue, have sex-which she just lays there and does not participate in, and repeat for the rest of the book.

I don't know about you, but I seriously wanted to throttle Christa through out the whole book. She was so stubborn, anyone could understand, "Christa, please don't wonder off, there are indians out there that could kill you," but does she heed this advice? NOPE! Off she goes...and it's pretty much like this the whole book. Always fighti
And One Rode West is one of Graham’s earlier novels and the third in her Civil War series. (No, it is not necessary to read these in order, since each novel follows a different member of the same family.) The novel opens in the early days after the Civil War has ended and Reconstruction is ravaging the South. Christa lived through the war in her family’s Virginia plantation house with her sister-in-laws and several freed slaves. No longer a Southern Belle, Christ is tough and has learned how to ...more

Third in the series and just as great

With the last on the series off the Cameron saga, we have And One Road West - Christa and Jeremy's story. They were an odd pairing cohorts together by Christa to save Cameron Hall. She thought Jeremy would marry her to save her home then they'd get it annulled and go on their desperate ways but that's where Christa was wrong. Jeremy had no intention to let her go and wanted her to make and accept it as a real marriage which she hated him for it. Christa is us
This is the story of Christa Cameron, a Southern woman. The Civil War has just ended. She did everything she could to survive but someone wants to buy her beloved home out from under her. The only option she has is to marry a Yankee and let him pay off the money the Northerners say they owe. Jeremy McCauley is her sister-in-law's brother. Christa has known him and disliked him for quite some time. They marry and he pays the debt. The next day both of her brothers come back from the war. They are ...more
Lucie "a heart so wild"
By this book, Heather Graham shines.
I know I should read the 1st series, but this one catching me first.
Its good, I love the romance. Good chemistry and (several) steamy love scene which never bored me. Maybe it contain different emotions in each love-scene. I will find another of her books.
Old skool western romance. Christa was a hard one to like but I could understand her fury and her pride. Jeremy was a terrific hero and didn't deserve all the heartache. She hung onto old hates way too long in my opinion and I am surprised Jeremy hung in there.
OK who am I kidding? I haven't been currently-reading this for yonks! I'm obviously never going to finish it, probably coz I'm kinda over the whole historical romance thing...... So yeah, this book will be moved to the didn't- bother-finishing shelf!!!

Last book in the series, not my favorite, but a decent read. I like the Cameron men much better than the women.
The conclusion to The Civil War triology, this book takes off in June 1965 a few months after the war is over at Cameron Hall plantaion in Virginia. Christa, the younger sister of Jesse and Daniel is left to try and salvage as much as she can of her home and defend is from Yankees. Jesse is in DC finishing up war business and Daniel is hiding out from the Federal government that wants him brought up on charges. War has changed the south and people on both sides have lost loved ones. Callie & ...more
I must admit this is the first American Civil War romance novel I have read. So going in I had no concrete idea of what I should expect.

The story starts at the end of the war. And we meet Christa who is a Rebel and Jeremy, a Yankee. they hate the sight of each other simply because they are on opposite sides. a plausible scenario.

Christa is a feisty, stubborn woman and Jeremy finds himself doing things he had no intention of doing around her. like marrying her ( and also sort of forcing himself

In And One Rode West by Heather Graham, Christa Cameron a Rebel is suffering the indignities of defeat in the aftermath of Civil War. But that does not mean that she has lost her spirit or her hatred of the Yankees. Especially when the only way to save her plantation from being confiscated was to marry a Yankee officer.

Un buen libro, me ha gustado la descripción que hace de los distintos pueblos indios, no hay ni buenos ni malos, simplemente diferentes culturas, una buena investigación.
La historia es amena, aunque he de reconocer que de los tres es el que menos me ha gustado, ella me ha resultado cansina, una mujer muy decidida, pero en el fondo con muchos miedos a sentir lo que siente, el personaje de él me ha gustado más, pero la relación entre ellos, me han sobrado la mitad de hojas, siempre igual... más de

Loved it!

This one is probably my favorite out of the trilogy. I'm a sucker for good love stories, and this one is the best.

booksonboard.comthis is the final book in a three part series.heather graham writes a historical fiction novel that takes place in the aftermath of the civil war. christa who was a confederate ends up married to union officer who remains in the army and is posted to the west. she marries him to save her home. christa does not want to love him since she lost her confederate fiancee to the war. overall, this book was not heather graham's best but it was a go
Emily Higgins
Christa Cameron convinced Union Colonel Jeremy McCauley to marry her to save the family plantation. Jeremy insisted that the marriage would be consummated. He then insisted that Christa accompany him when he traveled to the western territories to his next post. It is hard to believe that a woman of that era would be so defiant of convention that she caused all those difficulties for her husband. That said, I enjoyed the story and the two books that preceded it.
Stopped reading this when the hero threatened to rape the heroine and only walked away once she was naked and he was on top of her. That's still assault, buddy.

Yes, I also thought she was unlikable and selfish... that's no excuse. Looks like it's more of the same from this series.

Disclaimer: I received a free ARC of this book from in exchange for an honest review.
It was a good book. Worth reading. Strong heroine. I would have rated it higher, but felt her character was not always practical. Would rather they had worked at solving their problems instead of just being angry all the time. Still, this is one of my favorite authors. I've read all three in this series and enjoyed them.
I read this book a long time ago as a teenager and at the time, I loved it. But thinking back now as an adult, it seems that it was borderline abusive towards Christa the main character. So with that thought in kind of makes me not like it so much.

Really liked this book. It was a great refresher to see two people that despised each other to fall so completely in love with each other by the end. Really loved the twist with Dr. Weland, it was completely unexpected.
I quite liked this book, although, I felt that much of it was petty fights. Which I noticed in Lord of the Wolves as well.
