  • Loved the originality

    I enjoyed the originality of this story so much. It’s been years since I’ve read a historical romance that revolved around war and even then, I can’t remember one quite like this. From the very beginning, I was pulled into this book, so curious to see what had happened and how things were going to work out. Laura was a strong heroine, especially for her time and her response to Geoffrey was not at all what I was expecting. This story revolves around the accusations towards Geoffrey and I enjoyed everything during their journey and his trial. The military background as well as the legal proceedings were well written and believable. All of this caused a mild level of angst that sometimes leveled up a degree higher as they fought for his life. I struggled some with the lack of chemistry between this hero and heroine. While they had plenty of steam during the smexy times, I didn’t feel it building up or believe that they had a strong foundation to base a relationship on. I would have liked to see a bit more of them growing closer. Once I reached the second part however, I was able to set my opinion on that aside and again found much enjoyment in the story.

  • Historical romance in an American setting

    I enjoyed this historical romance that takes place during the War of 1812, and is mostly on American soil. We so rarely see anything outside of the UK in historical romance, what a refreshing change. Laura and Geoffrey are both easy to cheer for character. Geoffrey is never the stuffy Brit stereotype, but a good man with a full family that I'd really like to know more about. He's reflective on life as a soldier, which makes him real. He sees his job, the good and the bad. I really liked that approach to a career soldier. Laura is a widow that has raised a son and built a business, in a time when that would be looked down on. As she says at one point, those people who look down on her sure wouldn't have helped much while she was suffering in poverty, so she made it happen. I love that! I also appreciate the Laura makes some decisions that don't involve Geoffrey, not just because she's trying to hide them or protect him or any of those reason. No, it's also because, as she acknowledges, she's used to taking care of herself and also has to learn how to be part of a team. Again, real talk for any relationship in any time period. The romance between them grows from their attraction and time together, which feels authentic and of any time. The sexy times are hot and on the page. There is travel involved which takes the actual amount of time it would take, again very much appreciated. There is a mystery at play related to Geoffrey's injury and service, which I won't spoil. I thin it is handled well in adding tension and opportunity for the main characters to connect. The trial at the end is well done. I enjoyed this and hope fans of historical romance will read it. Also, best author's note at the end!

  • Would there be Love?

    Laura Farnsworth and her son Daniel saw this bright red in the underbrush. They found a man, an English Officer. At first, they thought him dead but he grabbed her ankle and asked for help. She took him home and would try to save him. He was unconscious for five days and then opened his eyes. She kept nursing him until he could stand. Laura lost her husband ten years earlier. She enjoyed her life. Geoffrey liked the military except when he lost men. He felt his job was to save as many men as possible. She ran an apple and cider business, and harvest time was coming soon. He wanted to help. I enjoyed the story of Laura and Geoffrey. It was interesting watching them use logic to come to conclusions. Also how they investigate when they could. They were a loving and giving couple. They seemed to get along with everyone. They had the courage to face their problems head-on. This is a complicated tale. Something always seems to be happening. But they keep trying. I received this ARC from Net Galley and voluntarily reviewed it.

  • Wonderful war-time romance

    Sleeping with the Enemy is a wonderful war-time romance. This is one of those historical romances that you can curl up with a cup of tea and enjoy. I loved Laura. She's strong and independent, but her heart misses having something more than just her son to care for, especially now that he's about to become an adult. Geoffrey is an officer - wounded and on the wrong side of the war. Despite tension from outside, there's an undeniable spark between them, and it was nice to escape for a few hours into their world.
