A Heart's Disguise by Colleen Coble A REVIEW

 In the aftermath of the Civil War, a young woman searches for her lost love at the edge of the West.

The Civil War has destroyed Sarah Montgomery’s marriage before it’s even begun.

After Sarah receives word that her fiancé, Rand Campbell, has been killed fighting for the Union, her brothers and ailing father persuade her to pledge herself to Ben Croftner—despite her strong misgivings. But when Sarah finds out that Rand is in fact alive—and that Ben Croftner knew it—she indignantly breaks off the engagement and goes in search of Rand.

But Ben Croftner does not take rejection lightly—and a single woman with a sick father makes an easy target. When Sarah is abducted by her treacherous fiancé, Rand finally comes to her aid . . . only to reveal that he has been posted at Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and intends to take her there as his wife. But could Sarah leave her dying father’s side for the love of her life? And what plans are forming in the jealous heart of Ben Croftner?

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Colleen Coble has written several romantic suspense novels including Tidewater Inn, Rosemary Cottage, and the Mercy Falls, Lonestar, and Rock Harbor series. Visit her website at Twitter: @colleencoble Facebook: colleencoblebooks

A Heart’s Disguise is book one in the Journey of the Heart series. This is the first of six novellas in the series, being released each month for the next six months. Very short books that can be read in one sitting easily.
  I really enjoyed it, but it just seemed to get started and the book was over. Colleen Coble is an excellent author, I love her writing style. I think it would be better if you got the whole set at once and read them right together.
The story line and characters are well-developed. The action is truly captivating.
My favorite character so far is Sara. She seems so lost and alone in this first book and I know she thinks she made the right decision, but I think she should have thought through everything more.
I will recommend this book, but if you can order the whole set as it will give you a lot more enjoyment.
