Publisher: Eternal Press

Rating: You Want to Read
Reviewer: Tiffany Kleinhans
Roselle can't quite live up to her flowery name and prefers to be called Ellie. Her plans of one day running her father's ranch are threatened by a handsome foreman, the dastardly family on the adjoining land; And more surprisingly, her heart.
Foreman, Tyler Bishop, can't make heads or tails out of Ellie Fountain. One minute she's a childish tomboy and the next, copper curls and curves. One thing he's determined to do, and that's keep her safe. He's not sure if he's doing it because she's the boss's daughter or because her feistiness attracts him in ways he doesn't want to admit.
Romance and suspense emerge in Sparta Rose.
This is a decent historical romance set in Tennessee around the time of the Civil War. Complete with a bit of a love-hate relationship between the two main characters, some detestable characters, evil plotting, and emotional turmoil, I actually thought it was a pretty good book.
The primary main character, Roselle Fountain, is a woman living very much in what is considered to be a man’s world, and trying to play an active part in it. While it may have been considered acceptable when she was a young girl to lend a hand with the men on her father’s ranch, now that she’s becoming an adult, it’s considered to be completely inappropriate. With a father pressuring her to act like the young lady she is, and the ranch foreman treating her like a child, Roselle just wants to be allowed to be herself.
Meanwhile, Tyler Bishop, the ranch foreman, harbors a secret love for his boss’s daughter. But, does he dare to express his feelings for the daughter of the man he respects more than any other? And, when Roselle’s stubbornness lands her in more trouble than she can handle, can Tyler save her, before it’s too late?
If you enjoy historical romance set in America during the Civil War era, then this book is a good reading choice. It rates a solid ‘You Want to Read’.
