TO THE FARTHEST SHORES
The unpredictability of her upbringing prepared army nurse Jenny Bennett to face any challenge at the Presidio Army base, but the sudden reappearance in her life of the dashing naval officer who broke her heart six years ago is enough to rattle even her.
Lieutenant Ryan Gallagher is one of the few men in the world qualified to carry out a daring government mission overseas -- an assignment that destroyed his reputation and broke the heart of the only woman he ever loved. Honor-bound never to reveal where he was during those years, he can't tell Jenny the truth or it will endanger an ongoing mission and put thousands of lives at risk.
Ryan thinks he may have finally found a solution to his impossible situation, but he needs Jenny's help. While her loyalty to her country compels her to agree, she was too badly hurt to fall for Ryan again despite his determination to win her back. When an unknown threat from Ryan's past puts everything at risk -- including his life -- can they overcome the seemingly insurmountable odds stacked against them in time?
A rich, vibrant historical romance that held me enthralled. Camden's research is meticulous Between the unusual historical facts -- espionage in the late 19th century, pearl cultivation, American nursing -- and the lost-love romance, I was well and truly hooked.
And, oh, the angst of betrayal! Six year later Jenny is still marked by it. She's a scrapper though -- her back story is fascinating and Camden slowly reveals it in small snippets, always leaving me wanting more. A tough but compassionate nurse -- she knows how to manage a ward of wounded soldiers. If only she could manage Ryan as easily.
He's a tormented hero. His loyalty to his country has cost him everything he holds dear and yet he can't help but hope that he might still be able to make things right. Jenny doesn't make it easy though and that makes the read all the more riveting.
A fast-paced plot cloaked with intrigue and an unknown danger heighten the romance and make this the kind of book you can't bear to put down.
