    Lisa T. Bergren is truly an amazing storyteller! She writes the most amazing characters and the most vivid settings.

    What an intriguing part of history that, though well know, has more layers than one might first know of.

    I`ve loved traveling from England to the Caribbean in the first book. And now, to get a glimpse of revolutionary America and the islands, not to mention the ship scenes!

    Verity Banning is surely one of the most interesting characters ever written! And, sure, because she`s a horse whisperer and falconer. But also because she is organically fierce, loyal, and a hard worker, though it might be struck as unusual for the time period. And these characters that capture Ian McKintrick completely by surprise, undeniably growing an attraction to the woman who once belonged to his brother.

    I loved Verity and Ian's interaction. They truly for a kinship from common grief from the beginning, but a surprise to both of them is the depth of romance that, though tentative, can't be denied. However, Ian has been harboring revolutionary ideas of late, and for Verity to link herself to him might mean putting on wavering ground the once steadfast relationship with her sisters.

    How can Verity continue, though, to just sit and watch the king who, yes, she once called hers but now gives orders that can't be denied, even if it takes all the comfort or little food one might have, even if it leads to death? Nevertheless, can vengeance be the way for closure? Or can the balm that heals a hurt soul be found somewhere else?

    I am so looking forward to Selah's story <3

    "They seek not a man to direct them or lord over them, but rather one who will stand beside them, celebrating their strengths."

    The Banning sisters(plus one Covington) are by necessity, an independent lot. Verity Banning in particular lives and breathes her sister Keturah's advice, "Grin and bear it and always be a lady . . . . . then quietly beat them at their own game." Deciding to build her own enterprise on the British island of Nevis, Verity capitalizes on her love of horses, and the scarcity of the animals in the West Indies, by traveling to New York to purchase equine inventory for "Banning's Bridlery & More"; while deep in her heart another motive trembles for attention, discovering the fate of a most beloved captain.

    Imagine Verity's surprise when instead of reuniting with Captain Duncan McKintrick, she is introduced to Captain Ian McKintrick, who reluctantly bears devastating news. In spite of their new acquaintance and determining to honor his brother's wishes, Ian offers to ferry Verity's goods back home, even though his loyalties to England have become tenuous at best. Verity's almost instantaneous attraction to Ian is rather confusing, for America is on the verge of a revolution and this captain's allegiances could deliver danger straight to her dear family's doorstep.

    Enter into the world of the brave and the free as Verity discovers whether or not she truly has "the heart of a warrior". Lisa Bergren has delivered an exceptional addition to her Sugar Baron's Daughters series.

    This book is a historical fiction lover’s dream. First of all, location, location, location: It’s set in the Caribbean! I love getting a glimpse into a historical location that’s rarely explored in fiction. Second, it’s set on the cusp of the War of Independence—or the Revolutionary War. (This Australian never knows what to call it!) The Caribbean setting enhances the political tension as the characters determine where their loyalties lie and what the consequences of those loyalties will be. Add

    This book is a historical fiction lover’s dream. First of all, location, location, location: It’s set in the Caribbean! I love getting a glimpse into a historical location that’s rarely explored in fiction. Second, it’s set on the cusp of the War of Independence—or the Revolutionary War. (This Australian never knows what to call it!) The Caribbean setting enhances the political tension as the characters determine where their loyalties lie and what the consequences of those loyalties will be. Add in Ian and Verity’s personal story and I found this a difficult book to put down!

    I didn’t connect with Keturah as much as I wanted to in the first book in this series, but even then I had a feeling it would be different with Verity, and I was right. While both women are strong in their own ways, Verity is a more charismatic character—someone who wears her heart on her sleeve, as opposed to Keturah who is much more restrained. I admired Verity’s determination to open her own mercantile and her business savvy in overcoming the opposition she faced—in fact, I loved her pluck in general. If I say much more than that, I might give too much away!

    Ian is my kind of hero. He’s a man of strong character and sober mien, and yet his blood runs hot on certain topics and he’s definitely able to turn on the swoon factor when given the right inducement. There was an understated intensity to the development of his relationship with Verity that felt very organic to them and their situation, and I loved the balance he maintained between being protective of Verity but also recognising her ability and intelligence.

    Oh, and did I mention ships? Danger on the high seas AND the land, not to mention espionage and the desire for revenge. This story really has it all, and while there’s no cliff-hanger ending, it’s clear there’s more to come in Selah’s story. I can’t wait!

    I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. This has not influenced the content of my review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.

    I loved being back on Nevis and with the Banning sister’s and their families, and this book mainly focuses on sister Verity. I would recommend that you read the first book in this series, Keturah, so good!

    These are strong women and Verity is now leaving her mark and setting up her own store selling mostly horses and tack, and with the help of Ian McKintrick, brother of Duncan, she has been to NY and the Carolina’s to get her stock.

    Now with British soldiers living on their plantation, and the threat of war on the horizon, these women are going to have to make changes.

    There is still evil lingering on the island, and we meet the main nemesis again, and yes, I wished him ill will.

    I can’t wait for the next book in this series so I can go on with the Banning woman and their loves and trial, and find out how this wraps up!

    I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.

    "Verity" is a Christian romance set in Spring 1775 in Nevis, West Indies. This is the second book in a series, and it continues the story of the three sisters. However, it focused on Verity's romance and can be read as a standalone.

    Verity was intelligent, resourceful, and brave. Ian was impulsive, quick-tempered, and quick to beat people up--not really ideal traits for a spy. I could see why Ian admired Verity, but I never quite understood why she fell in love with him. Yes, he supported and pro

    "Verity" is a Christian romance set in Spring 1775 in Nevis, West Indies. This is the second book in a series, and it continues the story of the three sisters. However, it focused on Verity's romance and can be read as a standalone.

    Verity was intelligent, resourceful, and brave. Ian was impulsive, quick-tempered, and quick to beat people up--not really ideal traits for a spy. I could see why Ian admired Verity, but I never quite understood why she fell in love with him. Yes, he supported and protected her. And they did have mutual interests and worked well together. It just seemed to me that they fell in love pretty quickly considering what she had to give up and what a future with him actually offered.

    The characters were interesting, and I cared about what happened to them. The suspense came from the threat of harm from an ongoing evil character and from their spying activities. The historical details were mainly focused on the beginnings of the American Revolution and how that affected the trade to the West Indies. Ian struggled to trust God to bring justice rather than take vengeance himself. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I recommend this exciting novel.

    I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
