    "I love reading time piece novels. Romance is my preferred genre. I was able to get the best of both worlds in this awesome book. I usually like stuff set in the Americas , which this was not but it still grabbed my attention and was a fantastic read. So if being set in America is a deal breaker this won't cut it unfortunately but otherwise it was fantastic read."

    "Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series is a very popular mixture of science fiction and historical fiction. As a librarian, I have had many customers who have been interested in this series. This particular entry partly takes place in America, and is definitely part romance (as is the rest of the Outlander series)."

    "I have a bunch of favorite novels, but this one is near the top of the list. Into the Wilderness was the first book written by Donati and has a great love story within its pages. If you have read Outlander, then this will be a good complement although a bit fluffier. If not, then this is definitely a good alternative and I have a feeling you will like it. Wonderful book!"

    "This is a lovely romantic tale set before the revolutionary war. I loved the characters interactions and dialogue, which can often be stilted in novels like this."

    "The Only Vallerands first book of the series, When Strangers Marry, introduces an anguished romance primarily in New Orleans in the 1800s. It offers suspense, and major drama in the deep south during the pre-civil war days. If you like fast reading, with some steamy romance then this is for you. "
