My Rating: 5 Roses

A sweet, lovely romance! Beckman was so good, a brilliant historical romance.

Sara was a lovely heroine. She hasn't had the best life and she has been to everything she can to move past that.  She showed a lot of strength in her resolve to move on. Sometimes, that made her disinclined to let people in, since she was used to dealing with problems on her own, which was a little frustrating. But, for the most part, I really liked her. She was an admirable character.

Beckman was just as wonderful. This man is so sweet. He was such a charming, kind gentleman that it made my heart melt. He was honorable as a rule, the kind of man who enjoys helping others and would do anything to protect his loved ones. He was utterly perfect.

The romance in this book built up slowly. It started as a few sparks, then grew into a raging inferno. Sara and Beckman were very sweet together and very hot in the bedroom.

The plot of this book wasn't particularly fast paced, but it moved steadily. There were tons of surprises in store as ghosts from Sara's past came back to haunt her. I was hooked the entire time, anxious to find out what would happen to our lovely characters. And the ending was so perfect.

Beckman was a wonderful historical romance. Lovers of the genre, you should give it a read.
