What They Are Saying About Roberta Olsen Major’s Bound

“I just finished Roberta Olsen Major’s BOUND and am mourning the book's end: I wanted the story to go on and on. The characters are so completely well-drawn, the story engaging, the setting and history is flawless.

“I'm not normally a fan of historical romance, but this is one that doesn't drone on and on with the author's proud display of research. Enough to make it real, but without the truckload of dry, historical facts that slog a story down. Bess Murphy and Ben Elliott are a hoot, and their reluctance to fall in love with each other is smooth and natural—no forced “relationship” scenes here. Flawed but charming, the couple engages the reader from the start.”

—Anne Carter, author of

STARCROSSED HEARTS

“…you know how I know that I have really liked a book? When I am done, I feel a twinge of regret that my time with these characters is over. And that's how I felt when I closed [BOUND].”

—an East Coast reader

“It was a really good story, with so many twists and turns, and such a wonderful command of language ...”

“[BOUND] is a great book—and wait until you read both TIES and PIECRUST PROMISES. More of those same folks! They're every bit as well crafted and entertaining.”
