WORDS SPOKEN TRUE
Adriane Darcy was practically raised in her father's newspaper offices. She can't imagine life without the clatter of the press and the push to be first to write the news that matters. Their Tribune is the leading paper in Louisville in 1855. Then Blake Garrett, a brash young editor from the North with a controversial new style of reporting, takes over a failing competing paper and the battle for readers gets fierce.
When Adriane and Blake meet at a benefit tea, their surprising mutual attraction is hard to ignore. Still, Blake is the enemy, and Adriane is engaged to the son of a powerful businessman who holds the keys to the Tribune's future. Blake will stop at almost nothing to get the story – and the girl. Can he do both before it's too late? Set against the volatile backdrop of political and civil unrest in 1850s Louisville, this exciting story of love and loyalty will hold readers in its grip until the very last page.
This is an oh-my-goodness-but-you-have-to-read-this-NOW kind of book. Seriously incredibly good. Riveting, in fact. The kind that you won't want to put down.
Rich in historical detail and fascinating facts, it propelled me back into an unfamiliar part of history and left me raging with fury and frustration more than a few times. Talk about engaging your readers! My blood is still boiling!
Adriane Darcy is a heroine to be reckoned with; a character full of complexities. She is conflicted between duty and desire and her struggle to be true to herself while not betraying those she loves brings such depth to the story. And who better to set her on her heels than that brash newspaper man, Blake Garrett? Gabhart upped the angstometer when she put those two together in their first scene. I won't say more other than a fainting couch is a definite reader necessity as their romance progresses. And you might want to have a supply of smelling salts on hand as well -- just to get you through to the end. :-)
