While the writing, overall, is good, and the pacing of the plot, too, the pacing of the romance and the writing of the characters' physical reactions leaves a lot to be desired.
First off, the heroine started having overwhelming physical lust reactions way too soon, and in the midst of a frightening scene. She's scared out of her wits. She might notice Rafe is handsome, or at least not as scary as the other men, but not this. It was unrealistic. Also, for a young woman of breeding who, in her cousin's words, had 'never been bedded', she has an awful lot of carnal knowledge. And that brings me to another problem.
The story set in 1866, yet the characters use terms to describe their body parts, sexual responses, etc., that are way too modern. It kept yanking me out of the story and gave it a cheap feel. Authors. Pu-leeze. If you're going to write historical fiction, then do it right.
Maggie Monroe has just been 'sold' by her scheming cousin to a hard nosed, rough looking but handsome stranger. He is extremely good looking, but can Maggie trust Rafe, or should she try and make a run for it at her earliest convenience? Little does she know just how much Rafe will turn her whole life around, for the better.
Rafe McBride doesn't need this. The last thing he wants is a woman underfoot in a dangerous trek back home to his mountain cabin during a hellish winter storm, but the tenacious courage he senses behind a hesitant look in the beautiful woman's eyes draw him ever closer, so he rescues Maggie and throws himself deeper into a hole he never saw coming.
Two different, headstrong people thrust together in a blinding, emotion filled story that captures the gritty, hard west and showcases a brimming talent that will certainly shine in future books. Jennifer Jakes is an up and comer, a woman that has, with Rafe's Redemption, set herself on a path to future success. Get ready for sweeping passion, meltingly hot sex scenes and tender moments that sneak up on you. Jennifer has outdone herself!
