really liked it
Read from February 16 to 18, 2011

This was a great little novella. I have always been a sucker for Historical Fiction but it has been ages since I read a Historical Romance. I was hesitant at first but I am very glad I read this book. The author was well versed in the language and customs of the time era her characters lived in. C.J. Archer painted a wonderful picture and I could envision the book as if it were a movie. I enjoyed the theme of redemption and a second chance to make love work. Of course the ending was predictable but when I read romance I disregard that the ending is expected because it's ROMANCE! The boy and girl are supposed to live happily ever after in the end, I actually have no idea why anyone would expect otherwise is this genre. The author did a good job of immediately drawing the reader in with an almost palpable tension between the main characters and then was able to endure with that feeling right up to the end. BRAVO! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Romance, especially because Romance lovers read for the swooning, intense emotions and forbidden loves, this book has all of that! Overall it was a fun, quick and entertaining read. I would definitely read other works from this author because I enjoyed her writing style. WELL DONE!

C.J. Archer Hi Brianna, thanks for the review here and on Amazon. I'm glad you liked my little novella. My latest ebook, Honor Bound, has just been released and is available at Amazon etc for 99 cents. It's a longer story than Mercenary's Price but has more fun moments in it.
