Tortured war hero meets whiny daddy's girl. I can understand a 10 year old trying to hide the fact that dad's a drunk. However by 25 you must know the secrets out. Give up and go get a life. The hero is not bad if you like your men angry and depressed. I've liked many of Leigh Greenwood' s book unfortunately this wasn't one of them.

Holt Price is a doctor who is burned out from his years of performing grisly surgery on soldiers during the Civil War. He’s searching for his future and the love of his life. Felicity is taking care of her aging father and assisting in his medical practice. She’s beyond what society considers a marriageable age. She longs for true love but is determined to stay with her father and keep his secret. Holt is very single-minded in his beliefs and at times can appear harsh. Felicity is very determined and coddles her father which angers and frustrates Holt. The two clash on many issues and there were moments when I wanted to yell at both of them for being so stubborn. The story didn’t always keep my interest but I read the entire book and was glad I did. There is a bit of suspense which I actually liked in this book even though suspense isn’t usually my thing. There is a love scene but tastefully done. The outcome of the book is very satisfying. This is book three of a six book series of Night Riders and I will go back now and read the others. This is I would recommend this book to a friend.

Born to Love by Leigh Greenwood takes place in post Civil War Galveston during the Reconstruction era and the descriptions of Galveston are spot on. This is the story of a disheartened Army surgeon and the daughter of a local physician who mix as well as oil and water. Both the hero and heroine are looking for the illusive love that has been out of reach, one because of lost love and the other through family obligations. The book is well-written and seems true to the time period. The characters are well-defined and fleshed out and the plot is believable from beginning to the end. While this is not a time period that I generally like to read, the story is interesting and held my attention throughout it.

Hope this series goes on. Good writing and good supsense. Did not care for the cover for the story is better than the cover. Would like to see a different type of cover. But story is very good and worth while to read.

In 1867, Holt Price plans to never work as a doctor again as he lives the horror of butcher assembly line surgical conditions caused by the Civil War bloodbath. All he wants is to forget the atrocities and medicine, and find his beloved and marry her. However, he cannot ignore his need for vengeance against the traitor who sold out his unit, leading to a slaughter.

In Galveston, Holt gets involved in the surgery of an accident victim with a spoke stuck through his leg. The town physician Dr. Moore never worked this type of accident besides which he is drunk. At Moore¿s office, Holt meets his medical peer¿s daughter Felicity, who helps. They are attracted to one another, but she fears he will expose her father as an alcoholic and he fears getting entangled with her as his own father was a drunk.

This fine post Civil War romance emphasizes the traumas and healing of people trying to regain equilibrium after the world went berserk for a few years. Trying to cope with alcoholism is brilliantly handled though why Felicity thinks no one knows her dad is a drunk seems like too much rationalizing. Leigh Greenwood continues to write some of the strongest historical romances of the past decade; BORN TO LOVE is further proof of this.
