Every single book I've read in this series has just been so damn good. A lot of depth, no insta-love, great buildup, interesting plots that don't feel cookie cutter, and most importantly, characters that you can't help but be invested in and root for. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a really good romance novel.

Could've been a good story, but the author tried too hard to make it deep. Instead, it just ended up being sappy & melodramatic.

It seemed like everything the heroine & hero did "stirred feelings in the heart". The heroine (can't even think of her name now) pulled a tray of biscuits from the oven, and it chipped away at the wall surrounding Seth's heart.

Linnea Holmstrom made a mistake when she was a teenager and found herself pregnant. The baby was born dead. The people of the town and surrounding area labeled her as a tainted woman. She didn't dare dream of a future with a man, because of her reputation and she had her blind mother to take care of. Along comes Seth Gatlin to help his step-sister and when they meet he is a total gentleman and wants to be friends with her. An interesting historical romance. A good read!!
Very good story. If you love her books and/or historical romance this is a must read.
