~Free Book ♘ The Rebel and the Rose ⚐ I Want To Lie With You Now, Whispered The Handsome Virginian, Defying The Danger Of Making Her His Bride Tonight When War Could Make Her His Enemy Tomorrow The Beautiful Lady Barbara Shivered With Fear And Desire Her New Husband Was A Stranger, Wed To Her So His Wealth Could Pay Her Father S Debts Alan Maxwell Was A Dedicated American Patriot, Committed To Fighting Her King But She Wanted Him Than She Had Ever Wanted Any Man And As His Lips Lowered To Kiss Hers, Barbara S Heart Pounded Wildly, Fires Of Love Surging Through Her Blood, Commanding This Colonial Rogue To Take Her Now Too political for me and not enough romance. This book is about an arranged marriage between an American plantation owner and an English Lady immediately before and during the American Revolution Alan is American and his father insists he marries a nice English girl in order to get control of the family plantation Barbara is the daughter of an impoverished Earl who needs to marry well in order to get her family out of debt There is a lot of historical detail and follows the couple throughout the revolution My biggest issue with the book is the hero has an affair during the war Although we did get to hear the story from his point of view and know he did feel guilty, I did not feel he expressed his regret to Barbara He just expected her to forgive and forget I think he should have been understanding and worked harder to apologize. i was scotched from the start the book was great at first however, i found the issue of infidelity treated far too lightly infact, alan made it seem banal just bcoz u re facing war, infidelity is ok it was like he thought it was inevitable, he was justified dats where the author lost me. It was odd to have a hero that is unfaithful but it is a great rakish bodice ripper. I love the cover but b c of a trigger this book won t work for me. loved it made me read all joan wolf s books and made her one of my favorite authors yes Scumbag cheater
