In this Civil War romance by the New York Times– and USA Today–bestselling author, a Florida woman suspected of witchcraft reawakens a Rebel doctor’s heart.
Julian McKenzie, a surgeon and makeshift colonel, is at the end of his rope. He’s trapped deep in the South with his Rebel platoon, and their supplies and morale are running low. But while fleeing from an attack, he finds salvation in a most unusual form: a run-down plantation. Inside, widow Rhiannon Tremaine, a Union sympathizer, practices what the locals describe as witchcraft. In reality, Rhiannon is a gifted healer and medic. Still, she does have a bit of magic in her. In the fifth book of her Florida Civil War series, bestselling author Heather Graham evokes a treacherous world of divided loyalties. Rhiannon has the gift of second sight, and while she used to welcome her visions, now her dreams only give her pain.
In Julian, though, she may have found someone to change them . . . if the war doesn’t conspire to rip the two apart.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
In Confederate Florida, a healer reputed to be a witch fights her own civil war against the man she loves, in the conclusion of Graham's McKenzie Chronicles (Surrender etc.). Widow Rhiannon Tremaine, who harbors Union sympathies, betrays a Confederate platoon encamped at her plantation house and is taken prisoner by Julian McKenzie, the doctor who heads the platoon. Denying their mutual passion, they later separate, until the heroine's extrasensory powers bring them together. Graham knows how to spin an effective love story, but her unnecessary plot summaries of the previous McKenzie tales slow the momentum. Some unresolved threads--and the fact that the war has not ended by the book's end--give hope that the series will continue after all.
