I'm not usually one to get into romances, I like them but I have to be in a certain mood to read them and for some reason that time usually comes around Christmas or Thanksgiving through Christmas; but I have to say that this book was fantastic and I enjoyed every moment of it. The main character of the story Caitlin is young, spry, and completely unconventional! She is determined to be her own woman in a time when women were looked upon as being nothing more than an ornament on a man's arm. I absolutely loved her! Then we have Dillon Cade, an Englishman living in America running his own printing press and one of the most eligible bachelors in the land. He is the quintessential perfect male and I had no trouble at all falling in love with him from the beginning, however, it takes Caitlin a lot longer!

The fact this story was not just about romance but had profound elements of true history made it all the more endearing.

Caitlin's parents thrust her into an arranged marriage to save her from being forced back to Ireland and into possible danger. When Dillon realizes just how hard it is on her he begins to put things into motion to help her get her parents back to America. Candy Ann Little writes like a pro for this genre, she has the ability to bring out the spark and life in characters and makes them so real you can't help but wish you knew them!

It doesn't matter if you are not a huge fan of romance novels, this one you HAVE to pick up. It's not just a romance it's a lesson in history in such a way that you have no choice but to absorb it! I only wish they could have taught history this way back when I was in school, it would have made it so much more interesting!
