Book Review: "To Capture Her Heart" by Rebecca DeMarino

Heather Flower is kidnapped at her wedding after being forced to watch her new husband die. Even after the ransom is paid, she is left alone to die. Dirk Van Buren rescues her and brings her back to Fort  Amsterdam where Heather Flower's long time friends Joseph and Benjamin Horton get her and bring her back to her aunt's house.  With both Dirk and Benjamin interested in winning her love, how will Heather Flower know what she is supposed to do?

"To Capture Her Heart" is the 2nd in the Southold Chronicles series. I did not read the first book and felt lost as to who all the characters were. The names were hard to keep track of, also. I liked the concept of the story and the era it was set in, but couldn't get into the book. It did not pull me in and carry me along. It was unrealistic to me on how Dirk had just rescued Heather Flower and he was already in love with her. I never got a sense of either man being in love with her. It just kept being mentioned that she had two men who loved her.
