Publisher's Summary

The War Between the States may be over for the rest of the country, but not for Kit Weston. Disguised as a boy, she's come to New York City to kill Baron Cain, the man who stands between her and Risen Glory, the South Carolina home she loves. But unknown to Kit, the Yankee war hero is more than her bitterest enemy; he's also her guardian. And he'll be a lot harder to kill than she's figured on.Believing that Kit's a boy, Cain offers the grubby rapscallion a job in his stable. But he has no idea what he's in for, and it's not long before the hero of Missionary Ridge discovers the truth. His scamp of a stable boy is a strong-willed, violet-eyed beauty who's hell-bent on driving him crazy.Two hard-headed, passionate people, two stubborn opponents with tender souls - sometimes wars of the heart can only be won through the sweetest of surrenders.


What the Critics Say

"Skillfully weaving issues of politics, power, slavery, poverty, and social class into the plot, this historical may not be what readers expect from Phillips, but her strong characters, lively humor, and excellent pacing are all there." (Library Journal)

Gone with the Wind...NOT

this seems to be an attempt to rewrite a "Gone with the Wind" type story - but it doesn't quite get there. A shame as the author actually writes well - but the characters are so tormented and angry all the time that you want to smack them. it drags on a lot about the main characters' relationship being strained - a lot of North South rivalry stuff - could have been a great tale, but I was so annoyed at the constant "misinterpretations" and unsaid thoughts and misunderstood actions, that by the end, which is predictable, I just said, "UGH! finally!"
the narrator did do a good job though, and that was probably why I stuck with it.

It's great just not the greatest

I disagree with most of the other reviewers of this book. I am a HUGE SEP fan, and this novel is one of the lasts of her novels I bought because of what the reviews say. As one of SEP's older novels it isn't exactly what you would expect, but it is still great! "Just Imagine" is a bit darker and has a little less humor than the other novels, the relationship between Kit and Barron much more conflicting and harsher than what we are accustomed to, but I found that the bad made the good so much sweeter! If you are familiar with SEP's books than listening/reading to "Just Imagine" you can see how it is the matriarch, the seed, that other novels and characters came from; Kit could be the great great grandmother of Blue from "Natural Born Charmer" and the plot line close to a combination of "Dream A Little Dream" and "Fantsy Pants". I have more appreciation for this novel having the sense that is was the start of so many other great things. "Just Imagine" will manage to make you feel every emotion...you will laugh, get mad, cry, and smile from ear to ear and is less predictable than most romances so you'll find it hard to turn it off. All in All, if you're already an SEP fan but are weary I'm telling u it's worth the credit, if your are new to SEP use your credits towards another one of her novels so you'll be sure to fall in love then come back to "Just Imagine".
