Confederate officer, Lieutenant Jesse Coleman is ordered to bring in the most dangerous spy in the area, the “Black Widow.” Problem is, Jesse’s already gotten a look at Maggie and decided she’s about the most alluring woman he’s ever seen. When he meets her, she stirs every lustful thought he’s ever had. Despite their attraction, he still has a duty, but if he obeys orders, he’ll lose the one thing he wants most…Maggie.

When the war ends, things have changed, although a lot of people haven’t, and Maggie is on the run for her life. She has a big surprise for the man who promised to help her.

Once Maggie shows up again, Jesse seizes the chance to have a life with her, but even if they survive all the dangers ahead of them, can he live with her Love Rules?


Review:  I was completely enthralled by this truly lovely tale of love. The book was set in the Confederate war time period ,and really blew me away. The “Black Widow” is used by the Federals to spy on the Rebels. And Jesse is the one assigned to bring her in at all costs!

The book tells of love and betrayal and I really do not want to give away too much here as it would ruin the book for those who have not read it yet.

What I will give you is that you will find yourself rooting for Jesse and “The Black Widow” all the way and find yourself in scenes where it is almost unbelievable what happens but you can’t help yourself from going “What next?”

And yes like in movies and other books of War there were some truly horrific scenes that had me wanting to rather page forward to the romance scenes. But in the end it was a very good book and well written. I did however have trouble with forgiving Jesse, and it is that reason that very reason that keeps me from giving this one a 5 roses review.



One thought on “Review: Love Rules by Rita Hestand

  1. What a lovely review. I worked hard on this one, especially the research that went into time period and getting married. It’s remarkable that there was a very short time in history back then where it was legal for black and white to marry. But it didn’t last long. Thanks for the lovely review.
    Love and blessings
