Read The Promise of Breeze Hill (Natchez Trace #1) Online Free - Natchez, MS; 1791
Anxious for his brothers to join him on the rugged frontier along the Mississippi River, Connor O'Shea has no choice but to indenture himself as a carpenter in exchange for their passage from Ireland. But when he's sold to Isabella Bartholomew of Breeze Hill Plantation, Connor fears he'll repeat past mistakes and vows not to be tempted by the lovely lady.
The responsibilities of running Breeze Hill have fallen on Isabella's shoulders after her brother was found dead in the swamps along the Natchez Trace and a suspicious fire devastated their crops, almost destroyed their home, and left her father seriously injured. Even with Connor's help, Isabella fears she'll lose her family's plantation. Despite her growing feelings for the handsome Irish carpenter, she seriously considers accepting her wealthy and influential neighbor's proposal of marriage.
Soon, though, Connor realizes someone is out to eliminate the Bartholomew family. Can he set aside his own feelings to keep Isabella safe?

I seriously loved the history and setting of this story! It's a time and place I know little about, so I was fascinated by the details of life there, the dangers and struggles, the successes and progress. The vibrant characters made it come alive and it was great to see Isabella and Connor's rela...

I loved this book what a great look at the late 1700’s in the now known state of Mississippi, which was under Spanish control at that point, and a lot of lawlessness.
Connor O’Shea is a desperate man; he needs to be reunited with his brothers that are still in Ireland, so he puts himself in indent...

Gobsmacked doesn't even begin to describe the way I'm feeling right now as I sit in a discombobulated 'the-morning-after-a-frenzied-reading-night' stupor. I only have two words.
Give me a moment to rally my sensibilities, but you might have to move my dog-eared copy of Breeze Hill to...

It was interesting to learn a bit more about the South at a time we hardly ever study--after the American Revolution, when it left British hands and became controlled by Spain (but before Napoleon took control and sold it to America). Even then there were contentions over slavery, and it was part...

This is a wonderful historical fiction romance with a bit of suspense. These are my favorite types of stories. I loved Isabella and Connor. I love when people from different groupings can find love despite the obstacles. This is a great time period also. I look forward to reading the next book in...

I have to say the first meet with Connor O’ Shea up on the auction block; I knew my heart was in trouble! As soon as I heard his Irish lilt, I was in deep waters and didn’t care if I drowned. His sparkling green eyes and crooked smile added to his charm, the more I got to know his character in th...

My heart was held captive by this Gone with the Wind feel of a story. I quickly bonded with the characters as I imagined Isabella Bartholomew to be a little like Scarlett. She had to grow up fast after her father’s injuries had him physically unable to do much. She soon becomes the heart of Breez...

The cover for this book is beautiful, and was the main reason for my choice here. The author is new to me, and I am generally not that interested in this time period and location. I've never heard of Natchez or the Trace, or familiar with the issues of the day. The benefit of reading books like t...
