“Romance. Intrigue. Honor. All that and more. I heartily recommend it.” —Michelle Griep, Christy Award-winning author
Susanna Moore can’t get him out of her mind—the learned lieutenant who delivered the commission from Andrew Jackson making her father colonel of the Cherokee Regiment. But the next time she sees Lieutenant Sam Hicks, he’s leading a string of prisoners into a frontier fort, and he’s wearing the garb of a Cherokee scout rather than the suit of a white gentleman.
As both Susanna’s father and Sam’s commanding officer, Colonel Moore couldn’t have made his directive to stay away from his daughter clearer to Sam. He wants a better match for Susanna—like the stuffy doctor who escorted her to Creek Territory. Then a suspected spy forces Moore to rely on Sam for military intelligence and Susanna’s protection, making it impossible for either to guard their heart.
From the start of this story you know it’s going to be tough one. Not because of the way it is written but more about the circumstances surrounding the main characters and the fact that you know it would take a lot for everything to work out smoothly.
I’ve not read much books set in this time period and was curious to see how it would be handled.
Both Sam and Susannah come from different works of life with her being fully white and him mixed. Though there’s attraction at first sight for both of them, it’s hard to see how it would work out. The story was evenly paced and enjoyable and I loved how the author put things together. A fun and enjoyable read especially for lovers of historical fiction.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All opinions expressed are solely mine.
