Well done, Hannah Fielding! What an incredible story :-)) You drew me in straight away with the setup on the ship! The adventure of Coral and Rafe started there and progressed to Kenya. Amazing setting descriptions that can only come from a true appreciation of that country. I loved your characters. They were easy to relate to yet they came in layers. And the only way I could discover the next layer was to keep reading. I felt the sizzle between Coral and Rafe early on and watched it grow into love, but along with the growing affection came a ton of conflict. And it just kept coming -- everything from secondary characters to gossip, mystery, doubt, mistrust, and more was thrown at Coral and Rafe to keep them apart. All of those things took the hero and heroine to the breaking point and all seemed lost. But the thing about true love, it doesn't give up. This book was expertly written to keep me wanting more. I would definitely read this author again!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Hannah Fielding's first book Burning Embers takes you on an unforgettable journey to Africa in the 1970's. Her vivid descriptions of Africa and beautiful love story will take you away. The story is about a very immature and sheltered young woman, Coral Sinclair, who returns after many years to Africa following her father's death. There she meets Rafe de Monfort, a mysterious neighbor to whom she is attracted. They are drawn to each other but Rafe must face his personal demons and Coral must mature. The descriptions in this book are pictures painted with words. The love story sensual without being crude. The characters are well developed and the book totally enjoyable. If the sign of a good book is that it transports you to another place and time, then you are certain to enjoy this bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I really loved Burning Embers and couldn't let go of it, which is amazing, because I'm not usually a great fan of romance novels. But thanks to the author's way of teleporting the reader to a distant place and time, depicting the sceneries with such pictorial colours, painting the heroes with such genuine emotions, that not only did I ideate the locale, connect with Coral and Rafe, but felt as if I was part of the plot.
I give five stars to Hannah Fielding and Burning Embers. And I can't wait for the next book to come out. Hats off to Hannah Fielding on her first novel - and many more I hope.
