    High adventure and romance

    In this adventure romance, the initial meeting between Cass and Rorrick is less than stellar. He puts his foot in it and only stops talking long enough to change feet! It takes the intervention of Cass’s best friend for Rorrick to once more have an opportunity of putting his request to her. Cass is not at all interested in Rorrick wanting to negotiate a deal for a tract of land, but she is willing to trade the land if he undertakes to take her to America and to act as her guide on her quest to right past wrongs. Having sailed from South Africa to Britain back in the days when sea voyages were still quite common, I emphathised completely with Cass’s sea sickness and felt for Rorrick having to take care of her. On their in arrival in Charleston things take a dramatic turn and the closer they get to Cass getting her answers, the more dangerous the situation becomes. Through it all, Cass finds that she can trust Rorrick until she discovers that she can’t. She is heartbroken but once again her friends intervene and she allows Rorrick to speak. The problem is Cass is holding her own secrets and when Rorrick finds out, they almost lose one another again. I found this book to be well written with very likeable main characters. They weren’t perfect and both made mistakes. The glimpse into mining towns is appalling and one can only be grateful that young children are no longer sent into tunnels. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Simply Wonderful

    i liked dis book, as it is i like d way K.J.Jackson writes & scripts her books, have read many of her regency romances. This is about Lady Desmond, Cass, who runs Revelry’s Tempest a gaming hall & American Rorrick Trowlson, bcoz of circumstances become a Viscount. He wants the land and she needs an American to help her right her wrong. With sparks flying and secrets both of dem encompass on a journey of d continent. It is a wonderful story of finding the truth, dealing with past heartache and righting some wrongs. A fast paced story that is full of passion and emotions that grip at your heartstring But also dealing with the mistrust that had built up... This story has passion , honesty, believable characters, realities of life woven beautifully by d author in d story..K.J.Jackson keeps d reader engrossed in d book so well developed he stories are... not one boring moment. I ve read many of her books set in d historical & Regency era , she presents d settings, aura , beauty , drawbacks of those times beautifully ...the beat i like about her books r d strong, bold , smart women characters in her stories ... I received a copy of this book as a gift via Hidden gems and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    A Lovely Adventure

    I just turned the last page, yet I do not want to let go of this story. Spanning two continents, this is a journey of life's hardships and disappointments that slowly turn into hope and love. Cass, Lady Desmond, allows herself only to focus on her work as the proprietress of a gaming hall, the Revelry's Tempest. Having lived through heartache a couple of times, she relies upon the only constant in her life, work. Rorrick Trowlson, an american comes to England to settle his dead brother's estate, but also wants to find answers. He confronts Cass and wants the land back his brother lost at the Tempest, that was part of the estate. Having deep regret not long past, Cass needs to go to America to right a wrong that has been on her conscious for several years. Seeing Rorrick as a means to that end, she strikes a bargain with him to take her there in exchange for the land. What follows is a wonderful story of finding the truth, dealing with past heartache and righting some wrongs. But also dealing with the mistrust that had built up with Cass and finding a way to trust her heart as sparks fly between her and Rorrick on their journey. This book is part of a series, although it can be read alone and I think this is my favorite. I love everything this author writes but I truly felt my heart engaged in this story. Do yourself a favor and don't miss it!

    Beautiful written story

    Beautiful written story. Strong, clearly defined characters. Although this is the third in a series, each book still works as a stand alone. Prior characters have cameo's in the story, but their story lines are not important to the heart of this story. Cass and Rorrick have a love that burns hot and bright - with both wanting the other, but not believing enough in their love to weather the storm. K.J. Jackson writes women you want to become best friends with, and men you want to have sweep you off your feet!!!!
