Land of Falling Stars - Book Review by Voodoo Bride + giveaway

Land of Falling Stars
by Keta Diablo


What is it about:
After her parents die in a fire, Sophia Whitfield struggles to save her beloved home, Arbor Rose. The Civil War has devastated the South, and another blue coat has come to steal her meager possessions. Before the hated enemy inflicts his destruction, she shoots him. And soon discovers the soldier is Gavin, the champion of her childhood.

Gavin's dark secret lurks in Sophia’s future. When she discovers the truth, she's torn between a burning hunger for the man she truly loves and loyalty to Jesse, their childhood friend. The despicable acts of war have changed everything Sophia and Gavin once cherished. Yet somewhere deep in their hearts, the mystical Land of Falling Stars still exists.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
A very emotional historical erotic romance.

I loved the romantic and sexual tension between Sophia and Gavin (who is one hunky blue coat) and the scenes between the two of them are really intense and hot.

Next to a really hot romance there was lots of action as well: death threats, a perilous journey and much more. The historical background of the Civil War was intriguing and added to the overall mood of the story.

I fell in love with Gavin from the start. He's hunky, loyal and courageous. Sophia is a much more difficult person to love. From time to time I felt like kicking some sense in her and Gavin forgave her faults much too easily in my opinion. Still I rooted for both of them to find happiness together and to be able to let go of the past.

All in all a very enjoyable and steamy romance.

Why should you read it:
It's an intense and hot erotic romance

Hello Voodoo Bride,

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing Land of Falling Stars. A very insightful take on the novel. I agree, Sophia was difficult at times and also had a mind of her own. I tried to talk with her several times about acting like a spoiled ninny. Her words shocked me: "Live with it. Southern women are coddled, pampered and spoiled. Where have you been?"

I finally gave up and let her have her head in the novel, but warned her she had better attempt to redeem herself with swoon-worthy Gavin at the conclusion. Don't tell anyone, but I think she actually listened to me.

Characters! What are we to do with them at times?

Thanks everyone for leaving a comment. Good luck to all. And Voodoo Bride, please tell your owner, I'm indebted. I placed her adorable logo on Keta's Keep so we're forever bound now! Isn't that kewl?

Namaste, Keta
have a wonderful weekend,
