Review and Giveaway: Love’s Rescue by Christine Johnson June 4, 2015

Can a girl enamored with the adventurous seas ever be content with the tame life of a Southern belle?

When her mother dies, Elizabeth Benjamin heads home to Key West, determined to transform herself into the perfect Southern belle her parents always wished her to be. But nothing goes according to plan. Her brother resents her, the servants do not obey her, and Rourke O’Malley, the dashing man she vowed to forget, refuses to relinquish his hold on her heart. Worst of all, it becomes painfully obvious that her father is not the man he appears to be.

As family secrets come to light, Elizabeth is faced with a difficult choice: to perform her duty and abandon her dreams, or to leave her life of privilege behind to chase the man her father sees as little better than a pirate.

From the first emotional page, author Christine Johnson throws you into a world of impossible choices, hidden desires, and heart-melting romance in the steamy South.

Christine Johnson is the author of several books for Steeple Hill and Love Inspired and has been twice named a finalist for Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart award. When not writing, she loves to hike and explore God’s majestic creation. She and her husband, a Great Lakes ship pilot, split their time between northern Michigan and the Florida Keys. Learn more at

My thoughts and giveaway:

I have read a couple of Christine’s Love Inspired books and really enjoyed them so I was excited to get my hands on a full length novel and get lost in one of her stories.

I wasn’t disappointed.

From the first page I was drawn into the drama of this story. There are so many layers I’m not sure where to  begin.

We start with a hurricane that changes Elizabeth’s course in life. We catch up with her four years later in another storm and finds herself in a mess. But she gets rescued by the one man she loves and the one she can never have.

She finds herself trying to fill her mother’s shoes but finds discouragement a constant companion. She is torn between doing what others expect of her and what her heart tells her to do.

How will this all play out? How can she make everyone happy, including herself? Is it even possible? You will have to read the book to find out 🙂
