To Capture Her Heart


To Capture Her Heart
Rebecca DeMarino

It is 1653 and Heather Flower, a princess of the Montauk tribe, is enjoying her wedding feast when her groom is killed and she is kidnapped by a rival tribe and held for ransom. Though her ransom is paid by an Englishman, she is nonetheless left to die in a Connecticut forest--until she finds herself rescued by handsome Dutch Lieutenant Dirk Van Buren. Torn between her affection for Dirk and her long friendship with family friend Benjamin Horton, Heather Flower must make a difficult choice--stay true to her friend or follow her heart.

   Last year, I found myself reading Rebecca DeMarino's A Place in his Heart. I really liked reading a historical book set in a time period that doesn't normally get a lot of fiction about it, so I decided to try its sequel, To Capture Her Heart.

   There were a lot of characters in this book, and I found it a little confusing, even though I'd read the first book in this series. Also, the romance seemed to move way too fast-- Dirk was convinced he was in love with Heather Flower after they'd met for like, five minutes it seemed. Maybe that wouldn't have been so bad if I'd been able to connect to the characters, but I didn't. I was kind of interested in Patience and Jeremy, though. I think the next book is about Patience, so even though I didn't care for this book, I'd be willing to read the next one.

   I rarely-very rarely- leave review books unfinished. But I had a really hard time getting into this one and ended up skimming the rest after a certain point. I'm sure a lot of people will enjoy this one, though. It just wasn't my cup of tea. Still, I think I'd like to try the conclusion to this series, even so.
