Drawn by the Frost Moon: Bitter Eyes No More (Creek Country Saga Book 4) ... by April Gardner

For those who enjoy saga-length Christian historical romance. Bitter Eyes No More is a single, complete story. It is book four in
the Creek Country Saga.

A man of abiding honor, tested by a woman of ruinous passion. A woman of unspeakable sins, pursued by a God of unquenchable mercy.

Spanish Florida once sheltered Lillian McGirth from her fears. Now, it feeds them. Mercy is for the deserving; for Lillian, an unwed mother accused of treason, there is only battering and defeat, but her fall breaks softly in the arms of an unexpected arrival, a man too beautiful of soul to stain with her lost character.

Captain Marcus Buck sails in on a pledge to save Miss McGirth from herself and from her child's father, a ruthless don. All the while, he's to regard her as virtuous and worthy of protection and to guard said virtue from pilfering. But the terms are flawed since he must first guard her from himself. Regardless, he is determined. He will free her, repair her name--simple labor compared to dodging the army's noose, mending wounds three years deep, and navigating a host of rebel Natives bent on inflicting more.

Through the steady crumble of his pledge, their friendship becomes a consolation, for she knows his pain as no other can or will. Their scars are one; their paths, however, might irrevocably become two... 


Even though I picked this book up out of the series order, it is a stand alone book. Drawn by the Frost Moon: Bitter Eyes No More (Creek Country Saga Book 4)  by April Gardner picks up action with characters that have crossed over from the previous story line, but I quickly learned their backgrounds and personalities thanks to their introduction in the beginning of the book.

Author Gardner has richly supplemented the story line with amazing details of the  historical 1817 era, proving that taking time in  researching details turns an average story into an epic book. I have to say, there were some characters that I didn't like and it took a while before I warmed up to them. Is it possible that a passionate woman could reach inside her soul to find the strength and boldness to endure hardships, battles and devious men that ruled her life?

This book could easily be transformed into a mini series or movie, as there are plenty of diverse characters and intense action. If you love historical fiction, this is  a must read series for you.
