At West Point, Only True Love Should Lead You to Flirtation Walk
Lucinda Pennyworth, the daughter of a con man, is trying her best to leave her father's sordid past behind her. When he dies unexpectedly, she takes the opportunity to move to West Point to live with her aunt, ready to take on a new life and determined to marry a respectable man, a West Point cadet, to impress her relatives.
Seth Westcott, a cadet at the academy, is proud to be at the top of his senior class. But when his mother dies and his sister loses their inheritance to a swindler, Seth wants nothing more than to head west to track down the con man. But the army will only send the cadets at the bottom of the class to the frontier . . . which leaves Seth with some tough choices.
When a woman trying her best to be good meets a man determined to be anything but, can there be hope for love, or will two lonely hearts be condemned to casual flirtation?
Lovely read! Siri always draws me in, in everything I've read from her! This time she has come up with fantastic and complex characters! The whole time I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for everything to come crashing down and boy does it! :) Poor Lucinda is a character that needs some help, but you can't help but love her through her issues. And then there's Seth! :) Stuck when he needs to be, and thinks he needs to be, elsewhere, his attempts to do what he thinks he needs to leads to more trouble! :) And then the sub characters! :) I LOVE and want more of their stories! There was a couple of personal issues I have with specific words and I wish they weren't used in the book, but the rest of it is FABULOUS! Interesting history, both in the story and in the Author's Note, woven throughout an intriguing story, by a FANTASTIC author! How could you go wrong with that?! :D I really enjoyed it and hope that Siri goes on with these characters some time.
