Book Review: The Reluctant Warrior

From The Back:

He Thought His Toughest Tests Were behind Him.

But Nothing Could Prepare Him for Trying to Win Back the Love of His Daughter. 
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 finds himself trapped by a blizzard with two children who are terrified of him and the stubborn but beautiful Gwen Harkness, who he's worried 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 worries that 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. 
My Reflections:
Another winning tale penned by Mary Connealy!
This second book in the High Sierra Sweethearts series starts with heat and keeps readers burning the midnight oil to its very conclusion. 

The characters are what you would expect from this authour, well rounded, filled with bravado, spunk and a whole lotta heart!
Hold onto your hats because this book is a whirlwind ride the action is non stop and the landscape unrelenting, and the characters just as engaging as ever!

The character development is done brilliantly, as well as the plot that moves with breakneck speed. I enjoyed watching the changes between Gwen and Cam, Gwen certainly knows how to soften up this tough as nails Union army officer! But will he be able to win the hearts of the children as well?

Connealy certainly has done her research with this time period, and the demographics make this book stand out just that much more. Well done!

I can't wait to read the second installment in the series, this novel sets us up well, I'm eager to find out more about Penny and John's life and journeys! 

If you are in need, and I mean in need of a whole lotta action and a little romance this is just the book for you, but please read book one (The accidental Guardian) first so that you get the full flavour of this wild adventure!
