My Fave Historical Romance only 99 Cents!

War. Devotion. Deceit. Death. 
How long can a heart hold on before it breaks? Most women would carry on with their lives after being thrust into widowhood, but not Charlotte Adamsland. Upon learning that her husband, Captain Sanderson Redding, was killed in a botched escape from a Confederate prison in Illinois, she clings to his promise to return to her no matter what, and quickly heads north through a war-ravaged country with only her faith in God and her beloved horse to bring her beloved Sanderson home – one way or another.

Sara Barnard is a master storyteller. The action and romance go hand in hand. 
I guarantee you will keep turning pages until there are no more, and then you'll want to move on to book two!
Don't say I didn't warn you...
