Popular Kindle Scarred Hearts 3.5 starsSo this is a bit of an interesting review for me to write. If I had to give a rating to the romance and the love story, my rating would be a 4.5 stars. Lettie and Shadow were fantastic characters, especially Lettie. She was a strong, optimistic, never-give-up type of young woman and I adored her from start to finish. Shadow was great too. He was kind, patient and very loving towards Lettie. He was a bit too beta for me at times, but within the storyline and the circumstances, I am not sure going all-alpha would have ended up well. The story had a super sweet HEA too. All of that was good.What brought my rating so far down from the 4.5 is that (view spoiler)[ I was angry about the lack of justice meted out to Shadow's family. I honestly would have enjoyed seeing every brother (except Pernell maybe) die somehow at the end-- and his father too. That sounds bloodthirsty but believe me, these men were disgusting evil human beings. (hide spoiler)]Other than that, the romance storyline was really lovely and wonderful. :D Thank you †Ðawn† for bringing this to my attention and for the loan!

  2. 4 You can come talk with me anytime, Shadow Robeson Stars.Scarred Hearts is Bonnie Dee writing in her inimitable style, and at her absolute best.There is nothing unusual about the setting, well if you were around the Kentucky area in 1919 I suppose you may disagree, but I wasn t so I am happy with the vision Bonnie gave me The love story that develops from the down trodden and down hearted pairing in this book grabs you by the emotional short and curly s and doesn t let you go You aint no shadow [...]


  3. 3.5 starsThis 167 pages novella reminds me a lot of my first Bonnie Dee s HR book Bone Deep So, if you like the historical setting and Tom in Bone Deep, likely you will like Scarred Hearts The author is such a great story teller that the insta love stuff in this novella doesn t bother me much.Set at the close of WWI, it is a well written novella that has a beta hero, a strong willed heroine, vile villains, and a HEA against all odds A good read


  4. Spoilers 4.5 starsLoved it Great writing, 3 dimensional characters, steady pace loaded with conflict The antagonists were believable and well developed My only complaint is that the last 10% seemed a little rushed.We have hero Shadow who is the only sane person in his messed up family Shadow is a war veteran who comes home with a missing eye, a bad leg and a few scars His family runs a pretty big moonshine operation and Shadow s job is to make the alcohol by operating the stills.Lettie, our hero [...]

  7. 3.5 stars Short and sweet historical romance by Bonnie Dee with a favorite theme of mine Two seemingly lost souls, Shadow and Lettie, both by circumstances of their birth, find each other when they were least expecting it Samuel, or Shadow as he s called by his boisterous and troublemaker family, is a WWI veteran who returned home scarred and hopeless To say his family was not supportive would be an understatement Let s just say no one saw him anything but a burden You wouldn t even wish Robeson [...]


  8. Scarred Hearts is a historical romance set in Kentucky, during the aftermath of World War I, a time that I think is too rarely explored in fiction As a matter of fact, I was happy to see a historical romance set outside the Regency era Shadow is a veteran that has returned home with one eye missing and a crippled leg His family is everything but supportive and he soon finds himself withdrawing into himself and That is until he meets Lettie, a tavern girl with a past that has made her a mark fo [...]


  9. I loved the sweetness to this romance and I have a major soft spot for heroines with bad reputations that they re trying to live down Stumbling blocks to this story include the age of the characters the heroine is a VERY experienced 19 year old and yes this is hill country Kentucky in 1919 so that makes sense, but I could see some readers not getting past the age thing and the hero s vile villainous brothers who areally, really bad men They re behind a particularly upsetting scene towards the la [...]
