There are LOTS of historical romance out there but this one is exceptional. The Colonel’s Lady is the story of Roxanna Rowan a young woman stranded at a Kentucky frontier outpost during the Revolutionary War. So there’s trouble from the British, the Indians, the spies and of course the dashing commander Colonel Cassius McLinn. Only problem is that the colonel she is falling in love with accidentally shot her father. At it’s core, this is a story of redemption and I love stories of redeeming the unforgivable.
Frantz does an excellent job of presenting a vibrant and dynamic setting for her book with plenty of historical information to intrigue the reader without pulling away from the plot. Some good twists I did not see coming and a couple light hearted characters to keep me smiling. The author seems to favor stories about women that have ended up in places they have no business being and needing to find the inner strength to find their way out. I really relate to that! Enjoy the fun, face paced read. I know I did.
