The Colonel's Lady by Laura Frantz

A desperate Roxanna Rowan braves the hostile frontier to travel to Fort Endeavor where her father serves as a scrivner. Upon her father's regiment's return to the fort, Roxanna learns the terrible truth that her father is dead. Despondent and destitute, Roxanna remains at the fort and agrees to serve as scrivner to the attractive, yet demanding Colonel Cassius McLinn. As Roxanna and Cass grow closer to each other, danger grows closer to the fort. Roxanna discovers her father's journal and his suspicions of espionage. However, the worst secret is yet to be revealed. Will Roxanna and Cass be able to put the past behind them? It will take a higher power than what either of them have to survive the coming days.

The Colonel's Lady is the first book I've read by Laura Frantz and I will definitely be reading more. I usually don't gush about a book, but I absolutely loved this one and I know I will reread it multiple times in the future. The poignant story hooked me from the beginning and the vivid characters stayed in my mind for days. The author's writing style was amazing. It was so beautiful to read that I wanted to take my time, but yet I was compelled to read quickly because I wanted to know what was going to happen. A delicious quandry, indeed.

The Colonel's Lady is probably the best book I've read this year and I absolutely recommend it to fans of Christian romance.
