    Soulfire sounds like an interesting book. "Captive Heart" is a great new ebook to read. This romance is not your usual girl meets boy, has troubles, and falls in love. It is set in the early Mormon frontier town of Nauvoo, Illinois, where polygamous relationships, and arranged marriages are forcing Maggie McGregor to make a decision that drastically alters her life. I found this book to be fascinating, with usual plot twists and turns, and sizzling romance. It combines historical romance with suspenseful action and interesting early American history.

    I read Betsy Love's "Soulfire" and am also hoping for a sequel. I love when authors use their imaginations to create a life that isn't mentioned in the Book of Mormon. Although we know about Alma and Abinadi, we don't know anything about their home life or spouses or families. Betsy took this as an invitation to bring us into the time period, make the characters from the Book of Mormon come alive and make them personal for us. I didn't want to put it down, but I had to work, eat and sleep. Just those "minor" things got in the way of turning the pages of "Soulfire."
