Liana De la Rosa, delivers a wonderful historical romance. Strong characters that I truly enjoyed. The pace was brisk and vividly rendered. The subject matter held my attention, I was captivated by the descriptive details of horse training. These details add a rich texture to this historical romance, making the novel have more depth. The plot line was enjoyable and stimulating.
I absolutely loved our main character here, Flora and thought that she was an extremely well-written, realistic, driven. DeLaRosa has a way of fleshing out the personalities of the hero and heroine, in this lovely book by keeping the reader thoroughly engaged in the storyline
The romance is tension filled and perfectly flows seamlessly from friends to lover troupe. Which happens to be one of my favorites.
Liana De la Rosa, is a talented author that has once again written a delightful, refreshing historical fiction. A passionate read that keeps you interested all the way through. I highly recommend reading this along with the other books in the series.
