THE CAPTURED BRIDE, the next installment in The Daughters of
the Mayflower series, was an adventurous ride I thoroughly enjoyed.
Mercy Lytton is no ordinary woman. Raised among the Mohawks,
and gifted with extremely good eyesight, she is chosen to be a scout on a
dangerous journey. She’s not thrilled to be a part of the ruse to move valuable
cargo to a distant fort, but having to work with traitor, Elias Dubois, is
almost more than she can handle.
Elias Dubois is sentenced to death. But, when offered a deal
in exchange for his freedom, he teams with Captain Matthew Prinn, and Mercy
Lytton to move French gold under the guise of being a family who is relocating.
Immediately, he clashes with Mercy. She is an anomaly he just can’t figure out.
However, his growing attraction to her begins to monopolize his thoughts. He
knows Mercy only sees him as a traitor, and a man unworthy of her attention, but
if she only knew his deepest secret, maybe she would see the man he wants to
THE CAPTURED BRIDE has a little of everything. Romance,
drama, tension, twists, tragedy, and adventure. The interaction between Mercy
and Elias, is electric from day one, and Matthew was a wonderful father figure.
All the characters were skillfully crafted, allowing you to feel their hurts
and their triumphs. I loved Mercy’s character because she was sharp and
independent, but vulnerable, too. Her struggle to come to grips with her past, while
trying to figure out her future, made Mercy a great heroine.
If you romance, colored with action and adventure, you’ll
enjoy THE CAPTURED BRIDE.

MY HEART BELONGS IN GLENWOOD SPRINGS, COLORADO was an
enjoyable read, though heart-wrenching at times.
Millie Cooper is a professional. So, when she is asked to be
a nursemaid to a woman who never approved of her station in life, by a man that
told her she wasn’t good enough for his brother, she accepts the job offer, no
matter the personal toll it is sure to take on her.
I couldn’t believe the premise for this book. How could any
woman see to the needs of a family that treated her so poorly? But that’s
exactly what Millie does. She is strong, intelligent, capable, and intends on doing
what she was hired to do. Only a saint would be a mid-wife to her ex-fiancés
pregnant wife. But Millie seeks God’s guidance and feels this is what He would
have her to do. Who could have imaged where this would lead? Certainly not
This story is full of twists and turns. Ups and downs. Struggles
and heartache. An 1800s romance set in Colorado that is sure to please.
