While Prize of My Heart isn't the best historical romance novel I've read, it was fairly good! It starts out with a scene I found hilarious (I seriously laughed out loud!). Drew (Captain Brogan Travis's lost son) shoots Brogan with a slingshot and knocks him unconscious - he thinks he is protecting Lorena from "The Giant" (i.e David and Goliath).

Even though the story was very good, there were times it seemed slow to me and it wasn't until I was almost finished that I really found myself interested in the story.

There was a major twist I didn't see coming (really, it was totally unexpected) and I loved that! It brought a little drama/suspense to Prize of My Heart.

The characters were great and I loved how there was an epilogue! It was great getting to read what transpired years later! :)

All in all, I did really enjoy Prize of My Heart and, aside from being a bit slow, thought it was a great read! I recommend it if you enjoy a good historical romance! :D

Diana I agree! It was a little slow for my taste and not enough character growth and foreshadowing. But, like you said, the twist was great!!!


Melanie Thanks, Diana!
