Reviewed by: Shawn Weisser
Reena Harrison is anything but the fashion, but despite her flaws, she has several suitors. Unfortunately, the one man she has always loved is not one of them. After things go dreadfully wrong with a suitor and her family, she finds herself asking Joshua a peculiar favor.
Joshua Sinclair has long had a fascination with the tall beauty. After years of denying his feelings for Reena in pure military fashion, he finds himself thrown together with her in an out of control scheme. How can he possibly rule his emotions when he finds himself posing as the sensuous woman’s husband?
As a general rule I like historical fiction. Crushing Desire did not disappoint. The author, April Dawn, captured my attention quickly and held it through to the end. She wove an intriguing tale of love and independence in a time when most women had neither. A headstrong young woman falls in love with a man she can’t have. Two brothers fall for her and she wants neither and the betrayal by one almost ends her life. She remains strong, remains true to herself and those she loves, and fights for what she wants. I really enjoyed this post-Revolutionary War story. The author was able to describe the settings and people of the period so well I could envision myself within the story playing voyeur. I would read more of April Dawn’s work.
