Review: A Hearts Obsession

Friday, April 17, 2015
Can a woman held captive by her family make it back to the one man she knows she can trust?
When Sarah Montgomery's father succumbs to his long illness, Sarah is faced with a life-altering choice: submit to her brother's will and marry the deceptive Ben Croftner . . . or escape through the dangerous American West to reclaim the heart of her beloved Rand Campbell at Fort Laramie, Wyoming.
From captivity in her family's home, Sarah makes her decision-and begins the perilous journey to Wyoming by train.
But even in the company of Rand's brother, Sarah does not receive the reception she had hoped for. The necessity of a military wife has preempted her, and Rand is already engaged to Jessica DuBois, the seductive daughter of the post commander.
With her heart broken and her life in ruins, Sarah has no choice but to remain at Fort Laramie and try to win Rand back. But things will get tougher before they get easier . . . the obsessive Ben Croftner has just shown up in Wyoming.

My Review:
Sarah is in a tough place, and she knows that if she were to stay now- she would be forced by her brother to marry Ben now that her father has passed. However, she is still in love with Rand and Ben is nowhere near the person she would ever want to marry. She escapes by going to the Fort with her best friend and her husband, Rand’s brother, and taking her younger brother with them. Yet, when she finds Rand, she finds that he has not been thinking about her as much as she may have been thinking of him. I felt for her, that would be so sad. His fiancĂ©e isa great person in public yet a snake when the windows shut down. Regardless,  Sarah stays, telling Rand she only wishes for his happiness yet begins to doubt that when his fiance's true colors begin to spill out.
This book is full of emotion and drama. It shows just how life was back then, tough, limited choices and the dangerous and strange relationship between Soldiers and Indians. Sarah decides to make a life for herself and the whole story is full of tension so thick it was palpable. A short, okay read.
*Disclaimer: I received this book from Booklook in exchange for an honest review.
