Love's Rescue by Christine Johnson

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. 

Love's Rescue by Christine Johnson
Keys of Promise Series #1
ISBN: 9780800723507
Trade Paperback - 352 pages

When her mother dies, Elizabeth Benjamin heads home to Key West, determined to transform herself into the perfect Southern belle her parents always wished her to be. But nothing goes according to plan. Her crippled brother resents her, the servants do not obey her, and Rourke O'Malley, the dashing man she vowed to forget, refuses to relinquish his hold on her heart. Worst of all, it becomes painfully obvious that her father is not the upright man he appears to be.

As family secrets come to light, Elizabeth is faced with a difficult choice: to do her duty and abandon her dreams, or to leave her life of privilege behind to chase the man her father sees as little better than a pirate.

From the first emotional page, author Christine Johnson throws readers into a world of impossible choices, hidden desires, and heart-melting romance in the steamy south. Readers will cheer for Elizabeth and Rourke as they battle the odds and the elements to secure their future

I am so happy that the author gave me the chance to read this book. It was a fun exciting book to read. From the first page to the very last it had my attention. I went to Key West for the first time last December so I could really see and feel every scene in this book. Christine does a good job with describing the background and scenes so you can really get a sense of being there.  I love that it is a historical themed book with some romance and adventure thrown in. In my opinion Elizabeth is a strong person. She left her home to return to the Keys to take care of her family home. At every turn it seems as if she is not wanted there, her brother resents her and the servants will not listen to her and then to realize that your father is not exactly who you thought he was. She had a lot to deal with.  If you like history, romance and adventure then I suggest you pick this book up as you will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to book two.
