It is hard enough to write a romance between one couple let alone two. I never felt connected to any of the characters on a deep level. I definitely did not feel any of the romance. The whole story seemed rushed and only explored on a surface level. The villain Logan was barely in the story and seemed just put in as an afterthought. I wanted more. I wanted to be inside the characters' skin and feel their growing attraction and love for each other. The romance was so slight it felt more like a straight western than a romance.
I really liked the dynamics in this story, especially the theme of race and cultural differences. This is still a story worthy of reading and I hope Miss Sheridan will write another western.
The story plot set against the back drop of a railroad that would pass through the little town obtaining the much needed traffic for the town's survival. The tolerance of mixed couples and the ongoing attacks of the Indians on the "white folk" making it a good story to read. I like American History and read a few books concerning the same issues. Always fascinated how people could find common ground to work out their circumstances amid rivalry, the greed for money and accepting each other for who they are.With that said the story line lacked flow to make this a really good and enjoyable read. To many holes that made you wondering "What am I missing?"The first thing I miss was the vision, no where does it say he would die but yet the fear factor was played in Cody and his mother when he announced that he want to marry Kate and it causes a few frowns reading the short story. Then the sudden stop when Cody and Kate had to work out his so called death scene. Nothing was mentioned -how did Kate feel about the deceit, her acceptance?The story just end with Vivienne informing John about this. For the strong role the two characters portrayed right from the start it made a abrupt end.The so called Indian attack that was stopped by John and a few men had no real punch to it leaving a few questions in the air. Although the story had a nice build up towards it but the execution failed in my opinion. Both men, strong in build and character and madly in love with the two women had no quibbles of sleeping at the local brothel. It raised an brow or two.
The sensuality among the two couples just enough to make it sensual.
The whole story just lack to capture my imagination.
From the very first scene, this was an erotic and spellbinding story. It felt very realistic, in that the beautiful women had several men interested in them on different levels, but definitely developed their own love stories. And then men weren't sitting around, waiting to fall in love. They were pursuing it wherever they could find it, which made it feel very real--that's what men are like today, why would they be any different in history?
I appreciated the character development, having seen many of these characters or their offspring in other books. And while I hadn't read a Barbara Sheridan book before, I will definitely be reading more in the future. She tells an unexpected and engaging love story of Cody Blackhawk, interwoven with the difficult romantic journey of John Avery. I thoroughly enjoyed these two heroes and their heroines. The backdrop of the Freewill story and its fruition was equally as rewarding as the love stories. I can't wait to read more about Freewill in the rest of the Western Escapes Books. Excellent work by Barbara Sheridan.
