    One thought on “Rogue's Hostage”

    1. This was one of 10 books in a Romance Super Bundle. I don't typically choose books set in the past, so this one was a change for me. It was pretty interesting and professionally and skillfully written.

    2. I was pleasantly surprised to have liked this book as much as I did. I've never read anything by Linda McLaughlin before so I didn't have any expectations but I do believe I've found another author I will be reading more frequently. The story was well thought out, well crafted, the characters were believable and developed with research. I could tell the author tried to stay true to the time and place without killing the reader with the horrific details of war. I'm sure that was not an easy goal [...]

    3. The setting is ok, French-Indian War in America but the story lacks bones to hang a plot on; sex and desire is not enough. I read 30-35% then gave up and skipped to the last chapter. Too bad. It could have been so much better.

    4. Good job with the 18th century French-British wars culminating with the Plains of Abraham. A hostage drama with the nitensity of a love story. Well done.
