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?

At first this was shaping up to be very close to a five-star read. The prose is lyrical and the characters and circumstances very engaging. I was a bit shocked to see a French profanity in a scene, but I was still really enjoying it.
A little past the halfway point, it seemed to lose focus. Strong...

The Promise of Breeze Hill is the first book I've read by Pam Hillman, but I will definitely be reading more at some point. This story is historical, but focuses heavily on the romantic aspect. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but for me, it was a lighter, fluffier read than what...

The vibrant characters made it come alive and it was great to see Isabella and Connor's rela...

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...

I honestly don't know why it took me so long to start this book. But it did. I was captivated by the first few pages. And while it took me about 2 weeks to actually read the book, I'm so glad that I finally got around to it.
I loved Connor. I loved how he was determined to keep Isabel...

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...

Connor: A gentle, protective, swoon-worthy hero. Irish. Isabella: A gutsy heroine determined to save her struggling plantation home.
They both dearly love their families and put their heart and soul into pursuing their goals.
Secondary characters in this novel are memorable as well! Many...
