{{Book Review}} Love's Rescue

Can a girl enamored with the adventurous seas ever be content with the tame life of a Southern belle? 

When her mother dies, Elizabeth Benjamin heads home to Key West, determined to transform herself into the perfect Southern belle her parents always wished her to be. But nothing goes according to plan. Her brother resents her, the servants do not obey her, and Rourke O'Malley, the dashing man she vowed to forget, refuses to relinquish his hold on her heart. Worst of all, it becomes painfully obvious that her father is not the man he appears to be.

As family secrets come to light, Elizabeth is faced with a difficult choice: to perform her duty and abandon her dreams, or to leave her life of privilege behind to chase the man her father sees as little better than a pirate.

From the first emotional page, author Christine Johnson throws you into a world of impossible choices, hidden desires, and heart-melting romance in the steamy South.

*My Review*
This is the first book I've ever read by Christine Johnson. It is a Christian romance that has such a magnificent beginning. While this story as a romance fizzled, but as a historical fiction, I really enjoyed it. The charm between Rourke and Elizabeth was lacking. 

Maybe this is just the author's way of trying to make a sweet romance that just didn't really draw me in as a reader. While I DID enjoy this book for the most part, I honestly think Love's Rescue might be better suited for a younger reading audience, like teens or young adults or maybe just someone who likes a sweeter story.

Just because I didn't 100% love the book, doesn't mean my readers won't enjoy it!
