4.0 out of 5 stars Mariah's Quest, July 1, 2012
This review is from: MARIAH'S QUEST (Harwood House) (Paperback)
In Rose's Pledge, book one in the Harwood House trilogy, we already met Mariah Harwood. She's the most beautiful of her sisters Rose and Lilly. Rose was very worried about Mariah being bought by a handsome young man.
This book starts at the auction and we get to read Mariah's story.

Mariah is a selfish young woman who came with her sisters to the colonies in hopes to find a wealthy young man to marry. When wealthy Colin Barclay laid eyes upon beautiful Mariah he only wants to buy her because of her beauty. While traveling to his parents plantation he fantasizes about Mariah becoming his mistress.

Colin's mother is not pleased with his purchase. They have enough servants. She suspects that Colin bought her to become his mistress. So, on Mariah's first day, Mrs. Barlay makes it clear that she will never agree upon a marriage between Colin and Mariah, even if she gets pregnant. Mariah doesn't want to be Colin's mistress. She only wants to be his wife--that seems very unlikely now.
Colin really wants Mariah and he's thinking about an opportunity to be alone with her, but that proofs to be almost impossible.

When Colin has to go on a business trip for a couple of months, he promises Mariah they will get married when he comes back. Mariah can't tell anyone that she's secretly betrothed to Colin. When Colin finally comes home they want to make wedding plans. But then his best friend Tuck comes by with bad news. They have to join the militia and fight against the French. Colin has to leave again and gets injured in battle. Everything changes. Colin and Mariah have to search their hearts if there's still hope and love for each other.

This was a nice and easy read. I'm sure lovers of romance will enjoy this book a lot. The book is very different from the first book in this series--where the first book took place in the wilderness, this book takes place on a beautiful plantation.
I'm looking forward to reading Lilly's story in the last book in this series.
