To Win Her Favor

This sigh worthy book has been my favorite read so far in the genre of historical fiction for this year. I could not put it down and I became obsessed with reading it!! I read as I dried my hair in the mornings, in the pick up line at school, and by lamp at night long after my family had turned in for the evening. I have read all of Tamera Alexander’s books and this one might just be my new favorite.

To Win Her Favor is 5 stars for its beautiful telling of a marriage of convenience. Chemistry between characters Maggie and Cullen is tangible! It is Far and Away (with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman) meets Gone With the Wind, except Cullen (the hero) is a more mature and much taller man.  Tamera Alexander gives plenty of page time to Margaret and Cullen which leads to a believable and wonderful ending.

I will read To Win Her Favor again as it has won a place on my shelf of cherished books. Like a new favorite movie, it will be enjoyed by me over and over. Really, I could go on and on. I loved it!

I sought out my copy of To Win Her Favor on NetGalley. (Because I read everything Tamera Alexander writes!) I have not been compensated for my review and all opinions are my own.
