There’s more than meets the eye with a brief description of this book. War, romance, deceit, family scandal… there is a lot going on in this novel. Readers might think there’s too much going on for just one novel, but that’s why fans can expect to be satisfied by more to come with this series.

The steamy romance scenes would be rated on the higher end. From 1- 10, an 8 seems about right. The friction between Lauren and Creed’s love-hate relationship is what seems to add to their scorching flames. To the more reserved romance reader, you’ve been warned. Blushing is in order. However, the book is not overrun with sex scenes, as the ongoing civil war and conflict with the Sioux natives give the story a rich plot full of action.

With the beginning of the civil war, be prepared for some detailed violence and the need for a hanky. There are many characters to get attached to, and since fighting inevitably comes from the wars and battles, expect to say good-bye to characters. There’s no spoilers, here. Everyone should know that with war, deaths are imminent.

It’s historical books, like this one, that remind us readers how much simpler life and love is, today. Marrying a man for convenience instead of love is not typically expected any longer, and fighting for your life when your home is suddenly ambushed is not a typical day in the United States anymore, either. This depiction of the civil war era may seem typical in some aspects, but this gun-slinging period is spiced up, lending thrills that enable the modern reader to still appreciate a side of history.
