Overview

Heather Graham’s Old Florida series comes to a close with a star-crossed affair between a Northern soldier and a Southern belle
Bravery in war can take many forms. There is the bravery of sacrifice for your country, and of attacking in the face of an opposing army, but there is also the bravery of risking your life to help others. And that is just what Tia McKenzie does for the rebel cause. She sneaks into the North and escorts rebel soldiers back to safety, using a trick borrowed from Lady Godiva. Fortunately, Tia’s passionate and brave defense doesn’t go unnoticed. Union soldier Taylor Douglas is immediately taken with her beauty and her strength. But standing between them are the chasm of war, the hostilities of their families, and a forced marriage to the wrong man. Bringing the entire McKenzie family back into the fold, Triumph is the explosive and satisfying ending the Old Florida series so richly deserves. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

    Did the same author write all six of these books??????????

    I fell very much in love with all of the books from this Florida/McKenzie series. I loved all of the caracters so much, and I am glad she let everyone make it through the wars. My only complaint is that she made more mistakes in these books than any author I have ever read before. In Triumph, she called Jeeves, Reeves. She called baby Katie; Kelly. In Captive, she said that Sean McKenzie was Scottish, but in Runaway, he was Irish. In Surrender, they called Jerome, James once. At the end of Triumph. Jarret talked about Tia and Taylor having 4 sons, then finally having a daughter named Jessica Lyn, but before the epilogue, Tia had a girl first and named her Hope. In Triumph, she said that James and Teela's house burnt to the ground, but in Surrender, basicaly, it was just the dining room destroyed. The writing was terribly inconsistant, and I have never seen so many mistakes before. It was like she was having some sort of a contest to see who could find the most mistakes for a free book or she had someone else write the book for her.

    A Satisfying Conclusion

    I thoroughly enjoyed this final book to her McKenzie series. She wrapped up the lives of these people that I have come to love in a most delightful and wonderful way. I absolutely loved the characters she created and will enjoy reading their story time and time again.

    Quite Disappointing!

    I have loved this series since its inception; however, this last book was disappointing!! The characters weren't well-developed and the story or plot was told to us. I want to experience-feel what they feel but this book didn't do it. I fell in love with James, Jarrett, Jerome,and Ian but these characters didn't have their depth or anything else. It was all wishy-washy. I miss these chracters and I wish better writing had taken place. Hopefully, the author will write another novel with the McKenize's included but who knows. I have a question, 'why didn't Brent deserve his own book?' Here's another question, 'why wasn't Sydney and Tia better included or equally included in this book?'

    At last the end of the Civil War

    Just finished reading the 'final' volume of the Florida series by Heather Graham. The last book 'Triumph' is dated January 2000. This book covers the end of the civil war, finally (I don't consider this to be a spoiler because we all know that the civil war ended and who won, and the back cover calls it the final novel). The series was published over a period of 6 years. These books are more historical than most romance novels, but the author does include a McKenzie family tree and chronology which helps a little. The family tree is in the back of Triumph. The first three books in the series were the best. The first two books predate the civil war and are concerned with the Seminole Indian wars. The last four concern the civil war. Lots of characters and lots of romance. In almost every case, the male and female leads are on opposite sides of the conflict, usually get married anyway and then go from lust to love. I do not recommend reading the last three as stand alones because they would be boring with so much history and so many characters being thrown at you. The first three books could be read as stand alones, but would probably grab you into the series. All of the books are available in paperback and are still in print. Heather Graham really worked on these books and it shows. Triumph is 488 pages long. Of course, there is a letter from the author in which she says that the McKenzies may be back.
