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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Susan Elizabeth's great formula

If you are a fan of SEP, you'll like this one too. I steered clear of this one for a while, since the historical romance thing turned me off, but when I eventually ran out of other SEP books, I downloaded this. It did not disappoint. Strong heroine who butts heads with an intense leading man -- all you would want from a SEP book. Sad that Anna Fields didn't narrate, but this reader sounded very similar and made the man's voice sexy -- tough to do. I highly recommend. It's nothing new, nothing particularly deep, but a tremendously good time.

Not her best

I did not care for this book. I only got it because it was the only one of Phillips I hadn't read. I wish I hadn't. I didn't like the characters, especially Kit, a spoiled brat. And I didn't like the setting--Post-Civil War America. It was too predictable.
