Joan Hohl certainly can write a range of romances. This historical is different from any I've read. Not being into vampire or time travel genres. Not that this is either of those. I've just never read sex scenes between a ghost and a human.
I thought the most interesting part of the book was the descriptions of how hard life was for women alone in the frontier west with no man to take care of them nor protect them. I could believe that Ms. Hohl did her research on this and believe the abuse of these young girls and how they really had to choice on how to survive except on their backs.
I don't know if it was because Jonathon was a ghost or what but the romance part didn't really grab me. Hence the 4 stars. I did fall in love with Wade Dunston. Those broody alpha males really get to me.
All in all, it's a pretty good read. Joan Hohl gets us again.
