Belle of Charleston, Book One
In a world of pageantry and show, the Montgomery family accepts the way of life that has been antebellum Charleston for over a hundred years. Two cousins, the handsome and debonair, Wade Montgomery and the bold and brooding Cullen Smythe, were born to be brothers. Raised as Southern gentlemen, their character could never be questioned: loyalty, honor, duty to one's country, God and family. It was the tie that binds until...their bond is threatened, not only by the cry for secession but by a woman-Josephine Buchanan Wright.
Josephine BuchananWright is a dutiful, southern belle. Her future seems fated to the two Montgomery cousins...until all she has placed her faith in falls apart. As her life spirals out of control, she tries desperately to cling to the honor and duty that has been instilled in her. But how can she do so when allshe has known is no more?
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a series and you will need to read them in order and they do end abruptly. With that said, the book is fast-paced, action packed, betrayals, disappointments, and shattered hearts. So far it is not the happily ever after. But again, the story is good. It is written with less respect with what the south had to deal with, though times WERE brutal. The characters are believable and I feel their emotion. I had purchased the 3 that are read and look forward to book 2 and 3. And when 4 comes out...I will read it also unless the price goes up.
