4.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 12 July 2001
By Stacy Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A tempestuous beauty with topaz eyes and tawny hair...a gambler as handsome as he is charmimg...an international war...all play a part in this enthralling romantic novel. Amid the lush green splendor of Louisiana horse country in 1812, fiercely independent Melissa Seymour finds herself drawn to devilishly irrestible Dominic Slade-although they cross verbal swords from the moment they meet. But as war between the U.S. and Britian rages, and treacherous political intrigue threatens, their concealed passions explode in a love story as turbulent and magnificent as the times. This was a great love story from Shirlee. Although when Dominic couldn't see through Melissa's disguise? That was alittle too much to believe. If she's this beautiful then glasses and a bun are not going to make her ugly. That was alittle far-fetched. Other than that it was a great read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good story 23 Jan 2013
By amy heatherly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had read this 20 years ago and wanted to re-read it so ordered it from Amazon. The story was pretty good but definitely one of Busbee's earlier works. Not as good as some. I may have over-inflated it in my memory, but it was worth the time spent on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love in Louisiana in 1814 as the Battle of New Orleans Approaches! 9 July 2012
By Regan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Shirlee Busbee's romances because I know I'm going to diving into a deep story, one with rich details in the descriptions of places, people, food and history, woven together like a tapestry, providing a great background for her captivating love stories. This one is no different. Her seventh novel, it tells an intriguing tale of love in the time of the War of 1812 ("Madison's War").

Set in Louisiana, beginning in the spring of 1814, this is the story of Melissa Seymour, whose greatest concern is surviving until her trust funds come in, which will only happen when her younger brother, 19-year-old Zachary turns 21, or she marries. Her uncle, who stands to benefit, urges her to marry and yet Lissa is "unmoved by the most ardent admirer". To discourage the men who flock about her, she disguises herself as a dowdy shrew. Her gift is horses and she has one stallion, Folly, who is magnificent and wins all his races. His prize money is keeping her and Zachary's home of Willowglen afloat. Then enters one arrogant, wealthy 32-year-old bachelor, Dominic Slade of New Orleans, who wants to buy Folly and start a stud farm on his new estate close to Willowglen. Through a bizarre set of circumstances, they are caught together in his hotel room and forced to wed.

Busbee sets forth a shotgun marriage that grew into love against a backdrop of English spies in Louisiana seeking out Loyalists who can be counted on for the Battle of New Orleans that is coming. Among the secondary characters is Jason Savage, the hero in GYPSY LADY. While the pace is a bit slower than more modern historical romances, fans of Busbee will not be disappointed.
