As far as stories go, this book reminded me of an old western movie. The hero, Jesse, was intriguing. Raised by his father who was a blind preacher, Jesse's faith and moral lifestyle make him different from many men of the time. He grew up in the mountains where he was friends with Indians. When he rescues a wealthy female from her kidnappers, he takes her on the weeks- long journey to be reunited with her family. He teaches her how to build fires and cook on the open flames. All the while, she can't wait to get back to "civilized" society.

Raised in Boston's wealthy society, Katharine first thinks Jesse is a savage. Before long, she is learning and appreciating his way of life. Still, she pines for her soft bed and fancy clothes. Her fiance' has always treated her delicately. Jesse is blunt and rough around the edges.

By the end of their journey, the two have fallen in love. A Catholic priest performs the marriage ceremony that binds them as husband and wife. After a night of consummation, Katharine's family is found. With them, is her prior fiance', Damien.

This is where the book lost heart. Rather than introduce Jesse as her husband, she merely identifies him as the man who saved her and brought her to safety. She climbs into a wagon with Damien, and rides away. She just leaves her husband in the dust. Jesse tries to let her go, believing that he can't give her the life she wants. Before long, he knows he can't let go of her. He travels to Boston to find her. When he arrives, she is still claiming Damien as her fiance'.

Katharine's family fortune is at stake. They are putting everything they have into building the railroad across the country.

Rescued from outlaws by a man looking for revenge, Katherine Dory convinces her rescuer to help her find her family. Katherine never imagined in her upper-crust life that she would be wandering the wilderness with a wild man of Jesse McCallum's upbringing. Even worse she never imagined her self falling in love and marrying him either.

Jesse McCallum knew he and Katherine were from different words but he couldn't stop himself from loving her and marrying her. Alone in the wilderness their love was perfect but when Katherine is reunited with her family, will what they share survive?

The Eagle and the Dove starts out as a great historical romance with the clashing of the hero and heroine and then the falling of love. I was enjoying it a lot until Katherine abandoned Jesse. At that point she was unworthy of Jesse's love. I adored Jesse, he deserved so much more and much better treatment. This is one of the few times in a story that I didn't want a happy ending between the hero and the heroine, I honestly wanted Jesse to move on and forget her. In the end there is a romantic happily ever after, but I'm still holding a grudge.

This is a well written book about two complete opposites and how they were brought together. A lot of research went into the making of this book. Victoria Morrow did an excellent job of spinning a powerful love story. I look forward to reading her other books.

I haven't read a lot of romance novels lately, but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Loved Jesse! His devotion to Katharine, his hunger for justice was amazing!
