This re-issue is available in ebook for a whopping $.99. I'm not going to review it, I'm gonna tell your cheap ass to just go and freaking buy it already. Spinster heroine raising three orphan girls in Reconstruction Louisiana Irish prizefighter hero who's an epic tortured soul = WHY HAVEN'T YOU BOUGHT THE DAMN THING YET? ( )

Story of tortured Irishman, Conor Branigan who finds love in Northern Louisiana helping a shy widow keep her plantation afloat and out of the hands of the local scalawag who wants to build a railroad right through it. Not bad, not great either.

It’s been some time since I read a book I hated putting down. It wasn’t so much the plot, although it was an interesting plot and perfectly paced, nor the writting, although it is beautifully written. It was the characters I hated to leave.

Conor, an Irish immigrant with a tortured past, has plenty of flaws, but his capacity for love and family are never far from the surface. Plus he’s strong, quick, handsome and competent! Never hurts.

The heroine, Olivia, was compelling as well. In spite of her dislike of swearing, gambling, drinking and so forth, she never came off as sanctimonious, ever. I think that’s where Ms. Guhrke’s talent really shines. That and the light hand portraying the children’s personalities and how each of them played a significant part in reeling Conor in.

He eventually capitulates, of course, but the ending has plenty of punch. And all for 99 cents! Wow. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061084026, Paperback)

In the aftermath of the Civil War, Olivia was determined to save her family and their near-bankrupt Louisiana plantation no matter what--even if it meant taking in cynical ex-boxer Conor Branigan in exchange for help. It wasn't long before she discovered the secret pain hidden beneath his rugged ways. And his ache touched something in her, lighting a fire in her heart.
