The Colonel's Lady

The Colonel's Lady
: Laura Frantz

A nice clean historical fiction set in 1779. Our female protagonist heads off to surprise her military father at the fort he's assigned to in Kentucky. Plenty of disasters happen en-route and once there see meets the male protagonist. Instant attraction, but she thinks she's not good enough for him. Meanwhile he has secrets that she will despise him for, or so he thinks. Battles are planned, spy in the fort, and much more before the end of the book.

The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Laura Jennings has a pleasant voice to listen to.
