Amazon Summary:
Penniless, her parents and brother dead, Sophia Whitfield struggles to save her beloved childhood home during the Civil War. Another bluecoat is staggering down the hill, but before Sophia allows him to rob and pilfer like the others, she shoots him. How is she to know it is Gavin, the dark knight of her youth, carrying secrets too horrific to imagine and a passion that ignites her deepest desires? As Sophia gradually learns Gavin's secrets--and enjoys his talents in the bedroom--she discovers how to finally know her own heart. Can she save the Land of Falling Stars, or will she lose it all to the horrors of the War and Reconstruction? And will the Southern lady and the Yankee soldier be able to recapture the bliss of their youth--this time in each other's arms?

When this book was offered on tour, I knew I had to sign up - last book I read from Keta, I became an instant new fan and couldn't wait to read this one. My first love was Historical romances specifically the Civil War. Reading this book was like returning home.

This book effected me in so many ways one being frustration. Not in a bad way though. Sophia, I love love this character but wow is she stubborn. I kept thinking what more does Gavin have to do to!! Yes, I nearly screamed(at 4am not good when you have a sleeping family). Keta writes such a believable storyline that I did feel all the emotions the characters felt. Especially at the end - frustration I tell you..

Action packed, roller coaster ride with loads of hot smexy action!!. I hope we will get to see Gavin and Sophia again in the future. I could have kept reading on and on and not got a bit bored with it. This was a reading in one setting kind of book.

So if you love the Civil War and You want some hot smexy action with intrigue and yes a few hair pulling moments(in a good way) please I beg you to go get this book. It's so worth it!!

It is so well worth it, I loved the fact it was set in the Civil War Era and it had a good drama filled storyline to go with the smexy action.

I am anxious to see what you all think of it.
