STORY: It is 1816 and twenty-one-year-old Julianne Smith is anxious to depart from her guardians’ luxurious household and set out on her own. Even with all her grand ideas seemingly within reach, Julianne never foresees the turn of events that are about to irrevocably transform her life.
Captain Charles Dorchester is a handsome, honourable man with few worries now that the war is behind him. When fate leads him to rescue the passengers of a stagecoach after it is robbed somewhere between London and Birmingham, he has no idea that inside is a woman with the power to turn his life upside down.
As Julianne’s path intertwines with his, neither can deny their attraction to each other. But as a fierce passion and love blooms between them, Julianne is left in the midst of an internal struggle that prompts betrayal, fears, and consequences.
In this historical romance, an independent woman becomes embroiled in a passionate love affair with a military captain that leads her to realize the influence of fate.
REVIEW: This is the first time I’m reading this author and I was pleasantly surprised with this touching and heartwarming story. Both, the characters and the plot were well written and the pace was just right, not too fast and not slow.
I truly enjoyed following these characters and finding out what made them tick.
For those of you that enjoy strong, independent heroines and honorable and handsome heroes, this story is perfect for you
