About the book:
Union army officer Cameron Scott is used to being obeyed, but nothing about this journey to Lake Tahoe has gone as expected. He’s come to fetch his daughter and nephew, and seek revenge on the people who killed his brother. Instead he finds himself trapped by a blizzard with two children who are terrified of him and stubborn but beautiful Gwen Harkness, who he worries may be trying to keep the children.
When danger descends on the cabin where they’re huddled, Cam is hurt trying to protect everyone and now finds Gwen caring for him too. He soon realizes why the kids love her so much and wonders if it might be best for him to move on without them. When she sees his broken heart, Gwen decides to help him win back their affection–and in the process he might just win her heart as well.
Genre: Historical, Romance, Western, Christian Fiction.
My Rating: 4 stars.
My Recommendation: 15/16 up because of romance, violence, and the villain’s POV.
My Favorite Character: Is Gwen, she’s stubborn but sweet but spunky, kind but killer serious about protecting her family. She does anything to help “her” kids.
My verse for Gwen is Joshua 1:9
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; benot afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (King James Version.)
My Thoughts: This was a good book, I read it before bed after working on writing (Rooftops is almost done!!!!) I have read many of Mary Connealy’s books, and I love her The Cimarron Legacy series, they are one of my favorite western series ever but back to The Reluctant Warrior’s review!
It was nice to read more about the characters I got to know in The Accidental Guardian, and I look forward to reading more by the author. The book lacked spiritual content at first, but it did pick up in the end.
