Just Imagine

The War Between the States may be over for the rest of the country, but not for Kit Weston. Disguised as a boy, she's come to New York City to kill Baron Cain, the man who stands between her and Risen Glory, the South Carolina home she loves. But unknown to Kit, the Yankee war hero is more than her most bitter enemy-he's also her guardian. And he'll be a lot harder to kill than she's figured on...

Believing that Kit's a boy, Cain offers the grubby rapscallion a job in his stable. But he has no idea what he's in for, and it's not long before the hero of Missionary Ridge discovers the truth. His scamp of a stable boy is a strong-willed, violet-eyed beauty who's hell-bent on driving him crazy.

Two hard-headed, passionate people.... Two stubborn opponents with tender souls.... Sometimes wars of the heart can only be won through the sweetest of surrenders.


**Personal Thoughts**

At first I had a hard time really getting into this book, I've read a few books by Susan Elizabeth Phillips but this was the first historical book I had read by her. After she finished introducing the characters and setting you up for the plot line that is when I was pulled in and never looked up. I loved being back in time where women dressed in petticoats and were instructed on how to be a good wife as their soul educational experience.

Even though Kit & Baron stood toe to toe most of the book glaring at each other you always hoped they would open their eyes and admit how much they adored each other instead of hiding their emotions behind their anger. I loved following the story line, the characters and watching the story unfold. I was so sad to have the book end - I wanted to know more, follow them longer. Another hit for Susan Elizabeth Phillips in my opinion!
