Review to come. Too overwhelmed right now. :D
Okay, I'm not as overwhelmed and words are coming back to me, but I don't think I can craft a review that says it better than this one:
So read that one after you read my lesser snippet.
This story has a great arc as well as powerful suspense and emotional ups and downs. The romance is full and rich and the setting is evocative and well-integrated into the narrative. Can't ask for more than that in a historical (French and Indian War -- unique!) romance.
Obviously, I highly recommend the MacKinnon series by Pamela Clare.
