The War Between the States may be over for the rest of the country, but not for Kit Weston. Disguised as a boy, she's come to New York City to kill Baron Cain, the man who stands between her and Risen Glory, the South Carolina home she loves. But unknown to Kit, the Yankee war hero is more than her bitterest enemy—he's also her guardian. And he'll be a lot harder to kill than she's figured on . . . Believing that Kit's a boy, Cain offers the grubby rapscallion a job in his stable. But he has no idea what he's in for, and it's not long before the hero of Missionary Ridge discovers the truth. His scamp of a stable boy is a strong-willed, violet-eyed beauty who's hell-bent on driving him crazy. Two hard-headed, passionate people . . . Two stubborn opponents with tender souls . . . Sometimes wars of the heart can only be won through the sweetest of surrenders.

This historical romance had an exciting beginning and plenty of action that moved right along but the animosity between the hero and heroine went on a bit too long with not enough re-building of the relationship. Disguised as a boy, Kit goes to New York City to kill Baron Cain.
The H & h fight and hate the entire book.I was pretty disappointed.
Listened to audio book. I'm not sure I'd have rated this book as highly if I'd read it, because it's a pretty old-fashioned story, with the hero and heroine at odds throughout the entire book and spending a lot of time apart.... there's a forced marriage and even a classic spanking scene. (I have to...
I enjoyed this, even though I don't care for Antebellum setting at all. I think a shovel was in order for the overbearing hero (to hit him over the head with), though.
