Giveaway and Book Review of Kentucky Green

Book Review of Kentucky Green Sponsored by Innovative Book Tours

Blurb : 

April Williamson’s heart calls her across the frontier, but only one man—a handsome army scout with a tormented past—can get her safely to freedom.

Synopsis: Daniel McKenzie was an army scout—quiet, capable, handsome…and utterly unwilling to be the trail guide April Williamson needed to reach Kentucky. The Indian attack at Blue Licks was but one bitter taste of the American frontier, a massacre that had taken her father just as cholera had taken her mother. But April would not give up on her dream. At journey’s end was independence, and nothing would stand in her way.

The young widow was beautiful and determined, but the months of travel involved in her plan would be too hard. Without the general’s order Dan would have told any woman no, but April especially. His secret would destroy her—or she might destroy him. April’s kiss was like the country itself. Restless and sweet, it promised a love that denied every boundary and looked only to freedom and the future.

About the Author:

Bio: Terry Irene Blain was lucky enough to grow up in a large Mid-western family with a rich oral tradition. As a child she heard stories of ancestors’ adventures with Indians, wildlife, weather and frontier life in general, so she naturally gravitated to the study of history and completed a BA and MA then taught the subject at the college level. Married to a sailor, now retired, she’s had the chance to live in various parts of the U.S. and has traveled to Hong Kong, Australia, England and Scotland.

“My degrees and my teaching experience make me a natural to write historical romance. Writing historical romance gives me the opportunity to pass on stories of who we are and where we come from while exploring the relationship between men and women. What could be more exciting than that?”

Book Review:
            During this time period it was considered a bad thing to have American Indian heritage, no matter how little.  Dan’s father was half Indian, making Dan ¼ Indian.  To some people that makes him less of a person.  The only time it bothers him is when he fears that April will fear him.  April’s father was killed in an Indian attack when she was younger.

            This is a lovely romance set during the initial westward expansion.  It not only has your traditional romance items, but also explores the tensions between the Indians and the settlers.

            I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.
