As well as Ms. Feather writes her Regency novels, this one of an earlier era (Cromwell, etc.) disappointed. The idea that a single young woman could be allowed to act as she does in this story is ludicrous. Women just weren't allowed much freedom in those days and this book falls down because of it. We need to keep a clear focus on how societal actions have changed from the medieval to the modern periods, so we can see how far (or not) we've travelled! Novels like this just muddy the picture.

Very good book

From Back Cover-
On opposite sides during the English Civil War, Alexander Marshall was honor-bound to seize Virginia courtney's lands and take her prisioner. By transporting Royalist fugitives to safety, the defiant young woman had forsaken her right to freedom-and the colonel would keep her captive as long as he had to. Subduing her rebellious instincts with his kisses was a natural temptation-until desire became more compelling than duty...

This is a historical romance occurring in the period of those loyal to the monarchy versus Oliver Cromwell and his followers.

Interesting story. This is the first one I've read that takes place in that time frame...of the English civil war of the 1640s.

Colonel Alex Marshall was intrigued by the impertinent chestnut-haired beauty. He wondered if she would responsed with the same fire and spirit if he was kissing on her. Ginny knew he could take everything she held dear and find the royalist fugitives so she baited the man with mockery.

If you like historical romance, with the emphasis on HISTORICAL, then this is the book for you. The setting is 1648, during the war between the Royalists, who support King Charles, & the Roundheads, who support Oliver Cromwell. The hero is a Roundhead General; the heroine is a Royalist; the story is how they love each other and cope with their basic differences. There's not a lot of explicit sex, like in most of the romances written today, but enough to support the storyline - for me, it was a refreshing change. I have not read many books set in this era, and I loved it!
