Bitter Bonds by Heather Osborne
Publication Date: May 16, 2016
eBook; 160 Pages
Genre: Historical Romance
Brutally torn between duty and his heart, Henri Du Cormier never expected to be completely enraptured with Adrienne Beaumont, the sister of his betrothed. As the new owner of St. Esprit, Henri knows he must work his way into a tight-knit society, and spurning his fiancée will do the complete opposite. However, there are hidden secrets, black magic, and voodoo entwined like poisonous vines into the Louisiana plantation. Will Henri end up cursing himself in life and love?
Adrienne Beaumont is anything but ordinary in a world of demure, Southern belles. Desiring little more than to be rid of a vengeful older sister, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the mysterious Henri Du Cormier. As their lives grow increasingly entangled, will Adrienne give in to the burgeoning attraction, or will fate play another card?
Copy Received from Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours for an honest review
"Bitter Bonds" by Heather Osborne was a very rich and refreshing read. I love both romance and historical fiction so this was an easy sell for me. I usually read stories set in England during the Regency period, this story is set before the American Civil War. There was a surprise to this story that I was not expecting, the supernatural element. I think if done right this can add to the story, and Osborne made it work and made it fit. This story drew me in with its sweet characters and fight for young love. Fun and quick emotional read!
