Published January 30, 2012
Available Format: ebook

My Rating: ★★★★★

Holding on to Heaven takes the reader back to the time just before the Civil War breaks out in the United States, when the Midwest was still "uncivilized" and the American Indians were being forced farther and farther out of their homelands. Lauren is a spitfire young woman from the south who travels to visit her aunt and uncle in Minnesota. Love finds her there, but it is far m

(watch the shortened video review: http://vimeo.com/33739282)

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

As many of you know I am a fan of Keta's books and this book I have to say is my favorite so far. It basically has two stories in one book.- Creed/Lauren and Sage/Wanapaya - Two sisters that neither know that other exists until fate brings them together.

What an amazing concept! At least for me anyway, I am almost positive I hadn't read anything this unique in awhile. Problem is where to begin with this review, other than I just loved it so much.

I have to admit Lauren, I wanted to smack a few ti

Keta Diablo has created a highly emotional read sweeping in its drama and action. From start to finish you're on the edge of your seat waiting for your heartstrings to get tugged again or your jaw to drop on the floor from the highly unexpected events. So get ready for one heckuva ride as you start reading this sexy historical.

HOTH is basically two different stories that finally converge in an unexpected way. With a story full of memorable characters, the reader is put into heart tugging situati

MARQUETTA
I think the summary of Holding On To Heaven is a little misleading. Yes, two brothers are in love with the same woman but the love triangle isn't the main focus of the plot. Lauren moves to Minnesota to live with her aunt and uncle as stirrings of the Civil War rumble through the South. Lauren is trying to get acclimated to living on a ranch. And then she meets Creed and the lasting impression she is left with is not flattering. Whenever they are in each other's presence, they argue and goad eac ...more
