A Heart's Disguise



In the celebratory mood of the recently-ended Civil War, Sarah discovers her betrothed has been keeping a devastating secret.

While the tiny town of Wabash, Indiana, celebrates the end of the fighting,           

Sara Montgomery attends the parties, but inside she’s fighting a deep sadness. The love of Sara’s life, Rand Campbell, didn’t come back from the front.

So her brother and ailing father persuade her to pledge herself to another man—despite her misgivings. When Sarah finds out that Rand is in fact alive—and that her fiancĂ© Ben Croftner knew it—she indignantly breaks off their engagement.

Croftner doesn’t take rejection lightly—and a single woman with a sick father makes an easy target. He abducts Sarah, his intentions anything but honorable. Then Rand comes to her aid . . . only to reveal that he has been posted at Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and asks her to go with him as his wife.
Will Sarah leave her dying father’s side for the only man she’s ever loved? And what plans are forming in the jealous heart of Ben Croftner?

My Review:

Though this is a 2015 release, I am reviewing it on Retro Saturday because this is the first book in the Journey of the Heart series which includes both Where Leads the Heart and Plains of Promise (originally published in the late 1990s.) Neither book is available in print format any longer so the author and publisher chose to release them using a serialization model. The two original titles have been divided into six novella length books and will be released monthly March through August. So beware -- this one has a cliffhanger ending!

It is vintage Coble -- danger lurking around every corner, a villainous villain, a thwarted hero and an earnest heroine who finds herself caught in the middle of conflict...and danger. Did I mention the danger? And the snake-in-the-grass villain? Grrr. You won't be able to turn the pages fast enough and when you come to the end you find that it isn't. There's still much more to come.

Because of the unusual serialization of this series, I am offering either a paperback copy of A Heart's Disguise OR an ebook copy of Where Leads the Heart (original full length book) to the winner of this draw.

My thanks to Litfuse Publicity and Thomas Nelson for my review copy of this book.
