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.

Christine Johnson is the author of several books for Steeple Hill and Love Inspired and has been twice named a finalist for Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart award. When not writing, she loves to hike and explore God's majestic creation. She and her husband, a Great Lakes ship pilot, split their time between northern Michigan and the Florida Keys.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this new book and start to a new series as Christine has done a fabulous job with creating characters and setting the scene.  Immediately I was drawn into the story and into Elizabeth's life and the trials she is facing.  This is such a great book that is filled with rich historical detail, family relationships and secrets, romance and wonderful characters whom I loved spending time with.  Must of the story takes place at sea and in the deep south and the societal views and traditions are woven in so well.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series!
