    ETA: there is a five star review on that is in spoiler territory. I've tried reporting it, but no luck yet, but be cautious when reading reviews there.New York, post Civil War. Christian Marshall came back from the war a hero, his brothers and parents all deceased, a permanent leg injury, and a whole lot of butt-hurt attitude that he drowns in the whiskey bottle. He was also stuck with the family's newspaper (he used to paint prior to the war), and when the story begins he's doing a piece on a [...]

    I have mad love for Jo Goodman, but I am not in love with title changes to old books. Luckily for me I hadn't ever read these books and I am glad. I would have rated this book higher had the two skated a bit too close to the edge of rape scenes at the first of the book hadn't took place or been retooled. It was the sign of the times when these books came out, so I took that into consideration. The last half of the book was awesome.

    Okay, this book is absolutely amazing and it is intense - or should I say that it's amazingly intense? Actually, what can you say about a book that has you sitting in a hot car on a sunny day in front of the supermarket just because you absolutely have to know what happens and you can't wait the five minutes it would take to drive home? Well, I guess this says a lot about a book, doesn't it?This book is raw, it is emotional, it is violent, it is shocking and it keeps you on your toes. From the f [...]

    I bought the book in spite of the cover and blurb. I was not disappointed and agree with Ms. Goodman's statement that the story held up, but can't comment on Christian's former characterization as I was deep in the toddler years when this came out. I see glimmers of West and Breckenridge in him and since they are two of my favorite heroes, I was quite, quite happy! After all, there will probably never be another Restell Gardner. I've almost accepted that.Never one to dawdle about, Ms.Goodman lit [...]

    Thank you to eBook Discovery for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. And, this is not an easy book to write a review for. Some facts to consider when writing my review:*The writing is excellent. *The characters are well drawn and fully developed.*The story is well plotted*There is drama, intrigue, romance, sex, abuse and more.*There is a HEA*The set up for book two in the series is well handled.*The story was originally published under the title “Midnight Princess” in 198 [...]

    Good read. It's almost melodramatic with the lunatic asylum and the struggles between hero and heroine. It comes really close to forced seduction without quite crossing the line. This is more a post-Civil War era story than Victorian because it's set in New York. It's very much "old skool" romance, and I liked it.

    I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review, and I must say this book had it all. The story involves an emotionally and physically damaged war veteran as the main male character, along with an emotionally, mentally, and physically abused young woman imprisoned in a 19th century lunatic asylum located in New York city, as the main female character. The first meeting of Christian and Jenny inside of this asylum fairly leaps off the page with descriptive cla [...]

    "I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review."The book opens with the terrified screams of a woman being tortured "for her own good" in the mental health wing of a hospital. A reporter, Christian, is secretly on a quest to rescue said woman, Jenny.How does one prove that one is sane if family and doctors insist that one isn't?Her Defiant Heart tells the story of a deeply damaged young woman, who is rescued from that hospital and hidden away from the docto [...]

    Jo Goodman is one of my favourite writers but she has written a few books which were deeply disturbing to read. I did not realize based on the reviews that this was one of her earlier books of that genre when I decided to buy it on kindle. The book started off dark and continued to be so until the very end. I really felt bad for the heroine Jenny who was in a horrible situation to start with and ended up with a disturbed hero who was almost as bad as the villains in his treatment of her. There a [...]

    Previously titled Midnight PrincessChristian Marshall, owner of the chronicle after his father and brothers died, embarks on a mission with the help of his friend to rescue a girl thought to be mad from the hospital. Not everything is what it seems as they slowly start to unravel the life of Jenny who has more secrets than she cares to admit. I like that the author made the hero fallible. He had his own demons to contend with just like the heroine. Everything life throws at you is not easy to ov [...]

    I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review. Our heroine, Jenny begins the story committed to an asylum and treated to extreme tortuous means of curing mental disease, even though sane. Our hero, Christian plans to ride to her rescue by preparing her for his return in the near future. Determined to save herself, she strips and ties up Christian and steals his horse and rides away. Christian is a hero haunted by war and drink and pushes Jenny away as much [...]

    I stopped reading about halfway through when the "hero" has sex with a woman in his employ, who he knows is drugged senseless, who he knows has been tortured and who he knows had been wrongfully placed in a madhouse under strange circumstances.I couldn't stomach that

    Okay, I did finish this book and I don't know WHY. Trigger warning for any sexual assault survivors out there, there is some in this book. Some is recounted and there's a couple scenes that might trigger.

    81% was a struggle. I give up. I can't believe the same author wrote the price of desire. That was a good romance. This is not.

    Decent enough story--I read a re-issue titled Her Defiant Heart-- but kind of spoiled by being too rapey for today.
