synopsis (from Goodreads)
Beautiful and high-spirited Caitlin Gallagher has no desire to be married. When she’s forced into an arranged marriage, she vows to loathe the man. Her anger is kindled even more when she finds out he was born in England. Her family was forced to flee Ireland and move to America because of the war with England. Now this Englishman is stripping her freedom away. Dillon Cade is her enemy twice!
Gentle Dillon Cade has lived a quiet life for thirteen years in Norfolk, Virginia. When he agrees to marry a young maiden so she can stay in America while her parents are deported back to Ireland, he gets more than he bargains for. As he uses his newspaper to fight President Adams’ sedition acts and help Thomas Jefferson get elected, he must also deal with an unwilling bride, who now disturbs his peaceful life.
Can Caitlin work through her anger, finding faith in God and love in Dillon’s arms? Can Dillon tolerate her behavior long enough to win her trust?
Christian Romances are not my usual genre, however, I have to keep my eyes open for more books by Candy-Ann Little.
This novel is very well written, the spirituality is not overwhelming. This book will be enjoyed by both Christians and non-christians alike. If you like a good romance, and be honest- we all need a little romance in our lives, read this book.
I really liked the strong female lead, Caitlin Gallagher. She is sassy and funny without behaving too much like a shrew. As for Dillon Cade, you are going to love him! I guarantee it!
The book has a wonderful historical aspect to it. I give it 5 stars and look forward to reading more from Candy-Ann Little
