Siege of Azalea Plantation (Book 1: Azalea Plantation Series) The Civil War stole her life and her new husband, but she vowed to keep his memory and dream alive and restore Azalea Plantation.

That becomes hard to do when Lieutenant Reese Armstrong sieges it for use as a hospital for his wounded soldiers and encampment grounds during the forty-seven day standoff for control of the Mississippi River before the surrender of Vicksburg. Widow Alexis Bella Seaborne led a sheltered life in the arms of massive oaks at Azalea Plantation with her husband Luke Wyatt until the Civil War forced her to forget about the elegant dress of a lady and embrace survival when a Yankee officer took control of her home. Reese never thought he’d fall for a Southern belle, but he can’t deny the attraction he feels each time Alexis’s haunted blue eyes show passion for the home she loves and her beloved South. He can’t help but envy the love and regard she held for her husband and longs for love like it. Alexis never thought she could love again when her husband died in the war. How could she fall for a Yankee when Union soldiers killed him? Left with nothing but a war-ravaged rundown plantation after the invasion of an ocean of blue, can she find trust and faith to move on? As movement flutters in her stomach, can she let go of the past to find a future for her and her unborn child? Her first love was sweet, young, and innocent, and she loved him with all of her heart, yet this handsome Yankee devil invaded her home and made her blood sizzle. His touch seared her skin as well as her heart. Worse yet, his kisses entrapped her lips and devoured her, consuming her with a passion that told her she was still alive and had not been buried with her husband. Despite her efforts to die on the inside, he awoke the spirit, heart, and passion she thought she’d buried for good. Book one of a two book serial, but may be read as a stand-alone. The second book will pick up with Reese still battling the raging Civil War and focus on the ending of the war. This one focused on the Battle of Vicksburg.

    I would give any writer a star for making the effort to finish a book but I must say this book was so tedious to get through. Too many details about the war and very little about the plot.

Same expressions repeated over and over. There were two children in the book living in the plantation but until the very end they were all but invisible. And several times it was mentioned that Lexie survived by teaching. Who did she teach, and where? She was too busy making wedding dresses from curtains (,got that idea from Gone with the wind?), standing at the bluff, writing love letters, daydreaming, taking care of the baby,seldom left home if ever. One chapter indicated that Reese was trotting up the lane but it took him two chapters to get there. For a while I thought the writer forget him as she went backwards to the bleak Christmas they were having except for the new baby. What about the other two children? So many chapters were wasted on repetitive and boring details. After reading excellent books of this era this one just doesn't measure up. It's just too silly and immature unless you're wanting a history of the Civil War instead of a good read that captures you from the first page.

    SIEGE OF AZALEA PLANTATION is a well-researched, moving historical novel of love and war. With great Southern pride, Alexis Bella Seaborne is determined to restore her Azalea Plantation to its stately days of yonder, which serves as a tribute to the her late husband Luke Wyatt, who lost his life in The Civil War.

During the forty-seven day standoff for control of the Mississippi River before the surrender of Vicksburg, her her home is sieged by Yankees for use as a hospital for wounded soldiers. Alexis tries to resist falling in love with the commanding Yankee officer, the handsome Lieutenant Reese Armstrong, who has invaded her home and her feelings. “When he rode away, her heart went for him.” “Love and war didn’t mix anymore than the North and the South”—or would they? Can enemies turn lovers? Five stars.

    Long and boring. The story begins with the heroine finding out her husband has died in battle. On the same day, a Union officer helps her to the carriage and then shows up at her plantation, taking it over as a hospital for his wounded men. She's literally just lost the love of her life but doesn't seem to be grieving...and showing interest in an enemy officer rather quickly... Besides that, the writing was boring. That's pretty bad when Civil War facts on their own interest me. But for a work of Long and boring. The story begins with the heroine finding out her husband has died in battle.

But for a work of fiction, there were a lot of sections that felt like the author just pasted in random paragraphs from the Encyclopedia about the siege of Vicksburg. I really can't recommend this book and won't be touching any others in this series.

    Good The story grew on me because of the characters and the plot. I didn't like how the author would write chapters where it was like he used a few of the characters..mostly Bill to be a narrator to tell everything that was progressing in the story instead of working it into the dialogue and characters interaction. But I will read book 2 to see what happens. It still was a good read overall. Good The story grew on me because of the characters and the plot.

    Good! It is a good story, but some parts I found to be repetitious. The characters were really believable and the story as I expected. I've already started the next edition. I'm anxious to see what happens. Good! It is a good story, but some parts I found to be repetitious. The characters were really believable and the story as I expected.

    Story was good I liked the main story line BUT. Way too verbose and repetitive!!! Same lines on the page before it time and again. Don't know if I will the next one. May have to scan paragraphs to get thru the repition. Story was good I liked the main story line BUT. Way too verbose and repetitive!!! Same lines on the page before it time and again.

    Ok The story line was good but too much military. Also, several errors in spelling and punctuation which takes away from the book. I will give book 2 a read and hope for improvement.

He can’t help but envy the love and regard she held for her husband and longs for love like it. Alexis never thought she could love again when her husband died in the war. How could she fall for a Yankee when Union soldiers killed him? Left with nothing but a war-ravaged rundown plantation after the invasion of an ocean of blue, can she find trust and faith to move on? As movement flutters in her stomach, can she let go of the past to find a future for her and her unborn child? Bill Dixon fights in the trenches as a Confederate solider who is a cousin to Reese. He longs for the war to end so he can return to Mary and marry her, but receives a ‘Dear John’ letter from her while fighting the hardest battle of his life, leaving him with little hope. He often wonders about the plantation on the bluff as he gazes at it from the trenches. After a horrible fight, he ends up hospitalized and meets a young widow from Vicksburg. Can she help him heal and get over Mary? What happens when Mary shows up looking for him, and wedding arrangements are in the making? Just when Lexie and Reese grow close, The Battle of Vicksburg ends, and he’s called to duty at another location. Will she ever see him again? The Union holds the keys to the war, Vicksburg and the Mississippi River, yet the war rages, and Reese has to ride to Chattanooga because the Union wants the key railroad in its center. Lexie dreams to restore Azalea Plantation once the war is over, but will it still be standing? Is Reese a spy or a traitor? When Mary recognizes him upon a chance meeting, will she make matters worse? There are many questions to be answered in this page-turning saga that will take you back through the Battle of Vicksburg and battles after it. Pull up a comfy chair and transport yourself back through time as Reese and Lexie fight for their love and their dreams, Bill decides between an old love and a new one, and the Civil War rages. Hearts yearn, war rages, and lives are disrupted when a handsome Yankee devil invades her home and her heart, making Alexis realize despite her efforts to die on the inside, he’s awakened her spirit, heart, and passion she thought she’d buried for good.

Ends with a cliffhanger. A clean historical romance. http://www.amazon.com/Siege-Azalea-Pl...

    In SIEGE OF AZALEA PLANTATION, opposing sides clash and then come together via the romance of two individuals during the most bitterly fought American dispute—the American Civil War. With resolve equal to that of Scarlett O'Hara's, Alexis Bella Seaborne is determined to revive her plantation home to its stately pre-war glory. Having fallen subject to the northern invaders—her home sieged by Yankees for use as a hospital for his wounded soldiers, Alexis never lets go of the memory of her dead husb In SIEGE OF AZALEA PLANTATION, opposing sides clash and then come together via the romance of two individuals during the most bitterly fought American dispute—the American Civil War. With resolve equal to that of Scarlett O'Hara's, Alexis Bella Seaborne is determined to revive her plantation home to its stately pre-war glory. Having fallen subject to the northern invaders—her home sieged by Yankees for use as a hospital for his wounded soldiers, Alexis never lets go of the memory of her dead husband nor of her southern pride. The commanding Yankee Officer, Lieutenant Reese Armstrong, unwittingly falls for Alexis, and she for him; which changes the dynamics of the situation in a heartbeat… literally. A sub-story provides more romantic intrigue when wounded Confederate soldier Bill Dixon meets a lovely after receiving a ‘Dear John’ letter from his fiancée. This is a story of honest romance and passion during a terrible war—how love can strike in the most unexpected circumstances; and how life events can utterly sweep you away. It has all the character and plot development one would expect in the first in a book series, leaving the reader wanting more. But SIEGE OF AZALEA PLANTATION can also easily stand alone as a novel. It is one of the better historical romances I’ve read in many years.

    I absolutely loved this book. It is a wonderful Civil War story and beautiful love story about Alexis, a true southern belle, and Lt. Reese, a Yankee officer, and how they discovered love can even be found with someone who should be an enemy. I was caught up in their story from the first pages and had to keep reading to see what was going to happen next. I was furnished a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and it is another one from this author that I can wholeheartedly recommend.

    It was a really cute story and great love stories. The time period was overly descriptive. I found myself bored with so much detail. I would space out and wonder what was going on. I had no idea at the first why a character's point of view was being considered till well over half the book. Other than that it was good. It was a really cute story and great love stories.

    Boring book This story is very sappy and repetitive. It talked about the war in a lot of boring detail. I got the next book in the series, but it is just as bad.
