In case you don’t have ($) to buy a rare, tattered copy of Phillips’ first book from 1984, RISEN GLORY, you’re in luck–Kit and Baron are back in this excellent rewrite, and they’re better than ever!
The Civil War is over for the rest of the country, but not for Kit Weston. She’s come to New York City disguised as a boy to get revenge. Baron Cain stands between her and Risen Glory, the South Carolina home she loves. Unfortunately for Kit, Baron isn’t just her bitter enemy, he’s been appointed her guardian.
Kit is an extremely strong heroine, but Baron is more than a match for her. If you love historicals where the heroine is disguised as a boy (I do!), and the hero and heroine are each other’s natural antagonists, where the action never stops, the story is fast-paced, and the sexual tension burns, you will really enjoy this book–it has it all!
I rate this book as follows:
