After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It’s a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucky—men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew, looking for an experienced guide.
Though he balks when Tempe is appointed to lead his team through the wilderness, it isn’t long before Sion must admit that her abilities may outmatch his own. But can the tenuous tie they are forming survive the dangers waiting just around the bend?
With her signature sweeping style and ability to bring the distant past to vivid life, Laura Frantz beckons you to join her in a land of Indian ambushes, conflicting loyalties, and a tentative love that meanders like a cool mountain stream.
A MOONBOW NIGHT:
“From the very first page, A Moonbow Night charmed me into its story, a story as earthy, rugged, and beguiling as the early American terrain upon which it has been laid. The book offers everything this reader wants: fidelity to history with rich, sensory details of time and place; names we’ve known fleetingly from the annals of the past who quicken on the page; fictional friends for whose happiness and romantic redemption we yearn. Tempe is a Kentucky heroine worth our time and heart’s investment—a waif on the outside, steel on the inside, kind in every situation. In Sion we find a hero worthy of the title, willing to grapple with his past to own his present and claim his lady. The plot is complex, tense, and layered and resolves in a most satisfying conclusion. This remarkable, elegantly written novel pulses with life and is a must-read for all who love historical romance.”

The only thing I wished with this book was a little bit more of a love story. I mean, there is a love story, but it’s soft, on the side lines, and takes a back seat to the story. There’s plenty of history and adventure to capture anyone’s intrigue, but I felt like Sion and Temp had such good chemistry I was wanting more there between them. It was so subtle that I wasn’t as excited as I could have been for them. Now don’t kid me wrong, the love story was gentle and cute, but I was hoping for more of a love story that swept me off my feet. But the gentle and subtle love works well for this story. I don’t think the love story was meant to be the driving point of the book. I think the journey of these pioneers and what they went through was the beating heart of this book.
If you like history, pioneers, great characters, great story and a cute, subtle love then be sure to check out this book!
