I really enjoyed reading about Melody and Anne, sisters and Cole and Steven. The storyline of how war affected Cole. Melody's marriage and how her husband, treated both her and her sister. Great story HEA for Cole and Melody. Anne and Steven have their own story "Tempted" (which I had to go onto B&N online bookstore to purchase). I am looking forward to reading their story and maybe reading to find out how things are progressing between Cole and Melody. HEA *****vrnb****

Good story.

This book was ok, but I feel like it lacked something and ended one chapter too soon. I also can not stand it when writers do not know when to use then and than properly. I doubt if I will get the next books in the series. 129 pages

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were very believable for the time period of after the American Civil War. I could see how a person could fall into traps by wanting security, peace and love. So very interesting to include the beginnings of the finding and use of rock oil.

I loved the setting of the gritty after the war experience. It was a great romance based on hardships and trouble.

A story of war, strife, loss and moving past it all to see a seed of hope, a kernel of light and a spring of love. Great read.

Wow. Up until this point, I've only read Molly O'Keefe's contemporary romances--which I loved. I was definitely open to reading a historical from her, though I wasn't sure what to expect. It's Molly O'Keefe, though, so it's got to be good, right? "Good" doesn't begin to describe it. It did take me a little bit to really get into the story (for one thing, she's not actually a widow for a good chunk of the novel, which threw me for a loop--that will teach me to read the blurb just before picking up a book), but once it grabbed me, it just didn't let go. Thank goodness I didn't have anything pressing to do that afternoon... This book is gripping. This isn't at all a "pretty" historical like most historical romances out there today, where the past seems sugar-coated and idealized--this one feels real. The blurb calls it "gritty", and it definitely is. These characters are damaged. They've got pasts that could conceivably influence the rest of their lives in a highly negative way. There were times that I wasn't at all sure that they could get to a HEA--especially since Cole was convinced that both he and Melody deserved more than a marriage of convenience and he was determined not to go that route. (And at the time my response to this was GAH! Why, Cole, why? Most standard historical romance heroes are just fine with that--why not you?) He was totally right, though. Giving into Melody's desperation would have been shortchanging them both--thank goodness he held out for more. Plus, it made for such an amazing story. I loved these two characters and their journey to find a new normal for themselves after Melody's abusive marriage and Cole's horrifying experiences in the war.  Their siblings--Melody's sister Annie and Cole's brother Steven--are the hero and heroine of book two. Though you could definitely see the beginnings of a relationship between the two here, I'm glad Ms. O'Keefe kept the focus on Melody and Cole in this one. Plus--a second book in the series; so much to look forward to! Rating: 5 stars / A rating I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Loved this story of damaged souls finding themselves--and each other--after the horrors they experienced in the Civil War. Molly O'Keefe brings her usual gut-wrenching insight to Melody, a former southern belle who doesn't know how to love, and Cole, a gentleman farmer turned soldier, then bounty hunter, who doesn't know how to find himself.
