Our customer reviews

I was given this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. How It Made Me Feel: This book was definitely my cup of tea. From the very beginning with the harsh and somewhat rude encounter with the felon, to the very end, I was entranced. I have found that I am drawn to historical romance books that have the premise of the main character being promised as the bride to a man she's never met. Generally, those stories never work out right in the beginning and she finds, and falls in love with, someone completely different. I love having the chance to read through their story, and this book was no different. It really stood out for me as I had never read a story set in Australia and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the characters, I loved the quirks the author gave the prisoners, and I love how much time and effort was clearly put in, and noticed, to create this wonderful book. What I Thought Worked: I was greatly amused with the amount of character and personality the author gave to the prisoners. I couldn't help myself but really enjoy Kevin's character. His conversations made me laugh and want to someday meet someone who speaks Cockney. I also enjoyed how much history was written into the book. I know it was a historical fiction book, but sometimes, I have found authors that are more interested in the love story, than the history the book is set in. What I Thought Didn't Work: I don't have anything of importance that I would have changed about the book. I loved it, cover to cover. Rating 5/5 Stars Why It Got That Rating: This was a book I was easily sucked into. I loved Emma's character and I also loved how she stood for what she believed, despite what might have been considered improper. I also loved how much I learned about Australia's history, especially when it came to Newcastle. This is a book I will have to buy a physical copy of to place on my bookshelf. Who Would I Recommend To: I would recommend to anyone who loves a great historical fiction book. It had everything included for a great novel. History, romance, adventure, and even more
