Bound and Determined (Hearts Entwined Collection): A Fort Reno Novella based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This novella by Regina Jennings is part of the Fort Reno series and is delightful. I have read many of her books and I am always entertained. Some are a little more lighthearted than others. This series has been full of adventure, romance, fun and some twist and turns. Even though Private Bradley Willis saved the entire troop, he disobey orders and played alone maverick to do so. He is now being punished and has to take this mysterious assignment to save his commission. He has been ordered to help a retired Calvary officer take a herd across the desert in Indian territory. He was not told it would be a heard of camel. But the biggest challenge is the officer's daughter who has decided to come along for an adventure.
If not for the fact that I'd already read the first book in this series...I STILL would've loved this novella!! Wow! I absolutely fell in LOVE with everyone in this story, including the camels! Lol, they were such weird little oddballs, but completely ADORABLE. And smart! I had already liked the character of Bradley Willis after reading "Holding the Fort" (book #1 in the "Fort Reno" series), but this story brought him more fully to life and I was able to understand him better. Once again, he had me laughing out loud at times and grinning from ear to ear at others! Amber's determination and straightforwardness were no match for his stubbornness (or was it loyalty?...) This was such a unique story! And I don't just mean from other books, but also from within its own series! I loved that the author found a unique piece of history that isn't widely known, and focused the story around it. Just makes it that much more intriguing! I'm so excited and will be eagerly awaiting book #2, "The Lieutenant's Bargain", set to release in December!
