Good morning everyone!! I know it's been a few days since a review but there's been a slight break in the amount of books I've received for review with the Holidays so I've resorted to reviewing my Christmas presents. ;)
*About the Author*
Roxanna Rowan no longer has any patience to wait for her dear father to return to her as he fights as a Patriot in the war. Determined, Roxanna sets out...only to find that her dear father has been killed. Now, with no money and no safe way to get home, Roxanna sets to work and agrees to stay until spring. When handsome Colonel Cassius McLinn arrives on his white steed, coattails flying, the heart of the Virginian Spinster soars along with it. When Roxanna begins to fall for a soldier, something she promised her mother she would not do, will his secret rip them apart? And when danger is just on the border, will the British prevail over them? Will anyone be safe, will Cass? And what of the secret of dear little Abby?
Colonel Cass McLinn feels dread, attraction and a million other things every time he looks at his dear friend's sweet Roxie. With growing respect and admiration for his new found scrivener, Cass does his best to keep his feelings under wraps. Unfortunately, to his undoing Roxie's feelings are similar and frightening to her. Trying to comfort the sweet young woman, keep himself in control, and worry about attacks, Cass is overwhelmed. Then when there's a chance that lives are lost, what will they do to protect one another? Will they live to see another day? Together?
*What I liked*
I love this book for many reasons but the first is the setting. I've read so few books set in the Revolutionary war time period (actually this was a first!) that it made it so worth it to read the history in this one. The cover was fabulous and don't get me started on the descriptions. Normally, I'm not too enthralled with red haired characters but Cass...he really had me. My favorite part was the nicknames. Not one but TWO nicknames, girl and guy nicknames!!! LOVE!!
*What I didn't like*
I didn't like the ending...don't get me wrong, I loved it but it was sooo sad when I reached the last page!! My sole issue with stand alone novels. ;)
I give The Colonels Lady... 5 stars!!
*My Overall Opinion*
My overall opinion on The Colonels Lady is five stars. I find it to be a wonderful book with faith, heroism, strength, and so many wonderful values in it without surrendering any passion or romance anyone may be worrying about. Into my favorites it goes!
