I don’t normally read historical romance, not because I don’t like history, but mainly because I find a lot of historical romances boring. Many historical authors spend too much time describing the customs of the time period and not enough time developing the story.

That is definitely NOT the case for Dawn Crandall. The Cautious Maiden is an intriguing tale of a redeemed bad boy who falls for the rule-following cautious maiden. Violet is pushed out of her comfort zone time after time and sent right into the arms of Vance (the repentant scoundrel). I loved these characters!

The writing is beautiful and the story is engrossing, so that it transcends the historical genre. This truly is a story all readers would love.

The Cautious Maiden is the first of Crandall’s books that I have read, and I enjoyed the privilege of receiving an early review copy. I can’t wait to read more of her books. If you love historicals, and even if you don’t, this story is for you. You can get your copy and get a peek at Crandall’s other books by clicking here
