Promise me Today - Lori Copeland #1

When the McDougal sisters were rescued by three strangers on their way to the gallows, each woman was picked up by a different man. Unfortunately for Abigail, she was grabbed by a twit of a shoe salesman, Mr. Hershall Digman. Of course she tried to steal his horse, only to discover the dandy was a Confederate spy! And he came running after her, demanding his papers. With murder in their eyes and lust in their hearts, they embarked on Drake's mission together, knowing that when fire and kerosene mix, the flames may burn out of control....

Sooo Just a heads up on this one. Lori Copeland did write Historical Romance before she went to straight writing Christian Romance. I've seen a lot of people complain about these early books of hers because they thought they were going to be Christian romance. This is a fairly clean book. Sex isn't described in great detail in this book, but it is THERE. I just wish people actually looked into books, and read others reviews before posting their own and giving these books bad ratings.

Ok off that subject I really did enjoy this book a lot. I loved the characters and can't wait to get to know the other sisters in the books to come. Hershall is just such a weird character when you first meet him, I wasn't sure how I felt about him. He was so awkward. But you learn to love them. As always I love Lori's books, she makes you feel the characters love, pain, and happiness. You really get pulled into the book. It is a historical during the war between the North and South. But it doesn't give a lot of history in it, just enough to image being there but not so much it over whelms you.  Great for those who love historical romance. Just so you know, this book leads into the next two books... so it doesn't really have an ending... Be prepared to have the next two books on hand!
