To Capture Her Heart and Giveaway

Rebecca DeMarino is the author of A Place in His Heart, book one of The Southold Chronicles, a series inspired by her ninth great-grandparents, Barnabas and Mary Horton.  She inherited her love of baking and gardening from her mother; a love of horses, reading, and writing from her dad; and the wanderlust gene from both parents.  Rebecca lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Tom.

In an uncertain time, she faces a choice that will change her life forever.

It is 1653 and Heather Flower, a princess of the Montaukett tribe, is celebrating her wedding feast when a rival tribe attacks, killing the groom and kidnapping her.  Though her ransom is paid by an Englishman, she is bound by her captors and left to die - until she finds herself rescued by handsome Dutch Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren.

Still tender from her loss, Heather Flower begins to heal in the home of the Hortons, English friends of her people.  Torn between
her affection for Dirk and her longtime friendship with Ben Horton, heather Flower must make a difficult choice - stay true to her friend or follow her heart.

My Thoughts:
Rebecca DeMarino has become a favorite author of mine.  Her impeccable research combined with a masterful gift of story shines through in her latest book To Capture Her Heart.
DeMarino captures the time period and history and seamlessly weaves those elements into a tender love story.  Her characters are well developed and have a genuine feel to them.  She has drawn me to a genre in which I would not normally invest time.
The writing in To Capture Her Heart is descriptive and DeMarino effectively transports her readers to another time and place in history.  Once you begin the first page, it is hard to stop until you have turned the last.

I love Heather in this story and DeMarino draws out her emotion and tension beautifully.  As a reader it is easy to feel what the characters are feeling.
You'll be blessed by this series.  The books can be read as stand-alones, but you will want to read all of them!
