Review of Kentucky Bride
What do you get when you add one brawny Scotsman and one Philadelphia fallen socialite, more fireworks than the 4th of July.
Clover Sherwood had at the age of nineteen lead a quiet respectful life. The suicide of her father has left the family not only desolate but desperate and destitute, not only that but with no money her fiancé drops her flat on her face too. Ballard Macgregor has come to Pennsylvania to not only trade horses but to find a suitable wife, one that help him feel comfortable in polite society. When Clover proposes marriage he thinks all his prayers have been answered, she’s a dream come true but she brings with her a curse from her past.
Hannah Howell has made her livelihood with historical romance, but it’s nice to see where it all began too. Not a lot has changed in those many years since she started. She’s still a gifted storyteller, her characters are still amazingly larger than life, her romance is sweet, hot and sexy and her love scenes sizzle. Sometimes no change is good.
If you know and love Hannah reacquaint yourself with where it all started. If you’re new to her this is a great place to start.
