Series: Romancing America
Author: Laurie Alice Eakes, Carla Gade, Lisa Karon Richardson, Tiffany Amber Stockton
Head to Colonial Connecticut where unexpected adventure catches the Ingersoll brothers by surprise—and brings unexpected love into their lives. Nathaniel has his sights set on becoming a master figurehead carver, until he risks everything for a woman. Jonathan’s merchant trade and his new love are in jeopardy from a brother’s animosity. Micah expects to settle down to peace after a life of fighting on the frontier but finds a young woman hiding from an abductor. Alden is press-ganged into tending an ailing naval captain, then catches sight of the captain’s fetching niece. Will the unexpected end in four courtships?
This collection takes place in the late 1700s, a different time period than many historicals and one I wasn’t particularly knowledgeable about (don’t forget I’m Canadian!) I found the stories interesting from that perspective. I also enjoyed cameo appearances by previous novellas’ characters, and watching their families grow and interact within the newer stories. If you enjoy this period of American history, I think you’ll like this collection.
Over all I enjoyed this book. Of the four stories I liked that last two the best and my favorite was the last one with Alden. That story could have easily been a stand alone novel. I like the Romancing America line because they can be read easily and are great books for those days you find yourself waiting on your kids at practice or waiting at the doctors office. Looking forward to reading more of these books.
