For Gideon North, a wife has to come with certain qualities. Hardworking, practical, and if possible, strong enough to not have a morning case of the vapors. Talkative, weak woman need not apply for this position.

Sarah Whitney is everything he could hope for and more. She understands Gideon better than anyone to date and in some cases, better than Charles Borden.

Charles has cared for Gideon since the Peninsular War. His life wouldn’t be complete without him. He fears he has lost his opportunity for a future with Gideon. Gideon fears his wife may not accept his scars. And Sarah is frightened she will never have a home of her own. This marriage will provide all three with the love and security they desperately need.

Just when I thought Samantha Kane couldn’t improve on this series, she blows me away with Love's Fortress, the seventh book in the Brothers In Arms series. Sarah’s loving relationship with her parents created a woman who is fierce, determined, courageous, loyal and warmhearted. Ms. Kane pairing Gideon with Sarah was a stroke of genius. He finally had someone to connect with, who understood his pain. Sarah was the perfect healing balm needed for Gideon to see himself as the man he truly is and to reclaim the passion that lay dormant for far too long. Her acceptance of Charles also smoothed the path for them to admit their lives wouldn’t be less than spectacular without him there. She made Gideon take his own advice and stop hiding in the shadows. It was nice to see him smile after so long.

Charles is an angel when necessary and a devil behind closed doors. He is the combination both Sarah and Gideon needed to make their lives one brilliant memory after the next.

Those who have enjoyed this series are sure to be as ecstatic as I was to see both men finally be able to claim the life and love they deserve. Pick up a copy and enjoy.
