Catherine Anderson: Early Dawn

Books download Early Dawn by Catherine Anderson –

I had some wariness coming in to reading this book I ve read so many Catherine Anderson books that I ve loved but then some of the recent few have been so so nd including Wrong for Me (Motor City Royals, a lot of religion So I wasn t sure what to expect of this book But this ended up being good one I enjoyed it lot though the story wasn t perfectSeries NoteThis book is connected to both other historicals by Anderson nd Fiddle: One Woman, Four Strings, and 8,000 Miles of Music also her long running contemporary series The hero of this book is thencestor of the contemporary Coulters But I think this book could be read s standalone There re references to of Keegan s Lady nd Summer Breeze that may make you want to go back Downright Dead and read their books thoughSummaryEden Paxton suddenly finds herselft loose ends fter her fiance dumps her nd his family spreads vicious rumors bout her She nd her mother Left Fur Dead are shunned from long time friends So they decide to travel to Colorado to live with her half brothers But on the way the train is robbednd Eden is kidnapped by nasty vile gang who beats nd buses herHot on their tails is Matthew Coulter He s been chasing the Sebastian Gang ever since they killed his wife nd nearly him Death by Tea as well He intends to exact his revenge but when he finds woman in dire trouble he can do nothing but save her With few options Loyalty and Lies (Chastity Falls, after the rescue the twore forced to roam the wilds of Colorado hoping to void the Gang who wants Eden back nd Matthew deadAlong the way the two develop By Way Of A Wager a strong friendship Eden is waryt first because of what she went through but Matthew s kindness draws her Unfortunately Matthew has ghosts he has to lay to rest before he can give his heart to Eden He s just not sure he can do itReviewThis book reminded me of older Catherine Anderson books I thought it had much depth than some of her recent contemporaries Maybe depth isn t the right word but I just found this story so much engaging than say Sun Kissed or Morning LightEden nd Matthew re both sort of classic Anderson characters Both re battered emotionally nd physically Matthew s scars run deep while Eden s re new They were two characters who seemed to fit very well together I liked the way Anderson wrote their interactionsMatthew d been on the trail so long he d become sort of uncivilized but he begins to change with Eden round I just liked the way to two complemented each otherFor When Kingdom Comes anyone looking for passion filled bookyou won t find that here The sexual relationship between the characters does not begin until late in the storymaybe round page 300 of 417 nd the scenes The Wayward Bride (Besotted Scots, are pretty PGPG 13 So this is not book to read for sex nd steaminessAnd just warningthe beginning of this book does involve some moderately descriptive sexual Such a Dance assaultgainst the heroine Just something to be ware ofThe one rea I think this book could have been better was the plot I liked the overall storyline but the execution was bit monotonous Pretty much the entire book is Eden nd Matthew roaming round the wilds of Colorado together After while that got to be little old I didn t mind it too muchwhich is saying something considering how much I tend to dislike storylines where the HH re lost in the wildernessso it wasn t La bte du marais a big issue But I do think the storyline could have had varietyAndlsothere were some issues with logic Laos: Keystone Of Indochina and realism I shook my headt How Foreign Policy Decisions Are Made In The Third World a few things It seemed like the HH did everything the difficult way just to keep the story going They could have solved their problems lot uicker I thinkStill I really enjoyed this story I found it to be very readable nd engaging I was sucked into the story once I started nd wanted to keep reading My friend Rachel told me Geeking Out on 11C about thisuthor Et ainsi de suite and I got to tell you CA ismaaazing I started this book yesterday The Shoshoni Cookbook and I couldn t put it down staying up until 3AM to finish The Sebastian gangre

go but by some twist of fate they end up bringing his everything right back to him He doesn t know it t first seeing first hand what the gang has put Eden through nd ll the memories it forces him to deal with He is numb I thought t first I would spend the book reading how he mourned over woman long buried now But it wasn t like that t ll He missed her sure was saddened t how she left this world but it was bout him not being ble to forgive himself What you get is this delightful romantic story of healing nd forgiving Eden is one tough lady nd her brothers taught her well She does not bulk under what the Sebastian s put her through I will say the first part of the book is difficult to read but the Mr Darcy's Cottage of Earthly Delights: Shades of Pride and Prejudice author is not graphic with her descriptions she leaves it to your imagination which is probably worse LOL The two spend over month together keeping the gang guessing where they re in the hope that they would cross paths with her brothers This is when the uthor worked her magic nd convinced this reader how these two grew in love Matthew says You remember ll those damned corners of the heart you told me bout A

The reason I enjoyed it The hero nd heroine Matthew Coulter nd Eden Paxton Wonderful characters Even though it took long time for their romance to get physical I enjoyed reading bout their backstories nd loved seeing their relationship evolve into what started out s mistrust to gradual friendship nd then to n intense desire nd need nd then romantic love Matthew nd Eden were terrific characters I especially enjoyed Eden s spunkiness nd courage nd Matthew was one of those uiet heroes whose Loyalty and Lies (Chastity Falls, actions speak louder than wordslthough I must dmit when Matthew did speak bout his feelings for Eden it brought some tears to my eyes Catherine Anderson is wonderful storyteller nd from the opening chapter I was glued to the story Jeep.

Ramasamy a nail biting climax where Eden s brothers maken eleventh hour ppearance HEA nd nice little epilogue I couldn t sk for much nd now that I ve rediscovered Catherine Anderson I think I ll backtrack nd read one of this book s predecessors Keegan s Lady If you like uiet tortured hero nd courageous spunky heroine who find love nd re willing to sacrifice themselves for that love then you ll enjoy this book 4 12 stars Catherine Anderson is one my top favorite romance uthors but I just don t think she writes with the same passion that she used to Compared to Comanche Moon Comanche Heart nd Keegan s Lady this book was pretty tepid Eden is bducted by outlaws while on her way to join her brothers in Colorado They buse her but don t rape her planning on selling her Commit!: Unlock Your Full Potential and Learn to Lead Yourself across the border Matthew Coulter whose wife was killed by the outlaws has been hunting them for 3 years He rescues Eden temporarily sacrificing his revenge for her safety While evading the outlawsnd leading them in circles the two become friends nd start falling in love but Matthew is reluctant to betray the memory of his wifeI read it in one sitting so I can t claim that it was terrible Catherine Anderson is beautiful writer But there were just moments when I sort of rolled my eyes Like Coulter s freuent internal monologue Announcing Trouble about whether or not Eden would recovernd how some people never became right fter such n experience I guess compared to what Anderson s other heroines have lived through Comanche Moon is the one that really comes to mind The Book of Revelation: and Keegan s Ladys well Eden s ordeal sort of didn t seem that horrific Anderson s writing has becoming increasingly Christian I feel like she shied The Sound of Music Story: How A Beguiling Young Novice, A Handsome Austrian Captain, and Ten Singing von Trapp Children Inspired the Most Beloved Film of All Time away from depicting things she was willing to face in her other novels Eden waslso stronger Edward Keating: Main Street: The Lost Dream of Route 66 and independent than her previous heroines I like strong heroines butt the same time I don t Anderson s heroines re usually seriously messed up from ll the buse they ve endured nd really need the hero to be patient with them Cold Blood and coax them into opening up I like that formula lot Calibre (Inspector Brant, and think Anderson is one of the bestt it So when you ve got the strong minded gun slinging Eden bouncing back from her moderate but not that wful trauma so fast even though the story was decent nd the leads had chemistry it was kind of lacking nd disappointing Once in while I reread Keegan s Lady Comanche Moon Comanche Heart Annie s Song nd few other Anderson novels there re some scenes that I really just think were terrific like when Keegan goes home with Caitlin for the first time or when Loretta warns Hunter The Dirty Game: Uncovering the Scandal at FIFA about the snake Early Dawn seriously didn t have single scene I d hunt for to reread That s been true for the last few Anderson novels Even if I read book in one sitting if it doesn t leave me with single scene I d want to revisit it s sort of bust for me I m sad Catherine Anderson has gone from rush to the bookstore nd buy it the day it gets out to wait to find it April Blood: Florence and the Plot Against the Medici at the used book store to only buy it if I find itt the thrift store or library book sale I used to buy her books No Life But This and devour them in day Instead I had to push myself to finish this one nd I end up skimming the last third of the bookFelt like nother re run to me And the constant going in circles for weeks on end drove me crazy I wanted to hero nd heroine to just go to city The Invention of Science: A New History of the Scientific Revolution and have the standofflready I The Philosophers Pupil also felt the heroine got over herbuse bit too easily Anderson has handled to topic of sexual ssault before Blind Watchmaker and better than this Also I wondered why the hero couldn t take on the bad guys while they weresleep passed out from drinking too much Even if he had to save the heroine why not get her out safely nd then shoot them ll The element of surprise should have give him enough of n edge to kill them ll before they managed to kill him especially if he was s good with gun Cannibal Sector 1: The Kingdom of Death in the World of Progress as he claimed to beWhat makes me really sadbout this is that Catherine Anderson has written some of my desert island keepers The only thing positive I have to say is that it wasn t preachy This is going straight into my return for trade box I do love Ms Anderson s storylines Chanakya: the Master of Statecraft and have rated lot of her books five stars I have tagged Escape Clause (Virgil Flowers, and shelved hers n uto buy uthor So why only three starsI should tell you up front I m not big fan of the rape theme however she s one of the few uthors who could note use of past tense here incorporate this horrible devastating event into beautiful story Transcend as she did in Annie s Songnd Seventh Heaven That said sometimes she Short when they kidnap her intending to sell her Resistance Is Futile!: How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind across the Mexican borderEver since gang murdered his

ruffians It was cute story nd for someone that likes westerns Yearning for the Impossible: The Surprising Truths of Mathematics and historical romance books then I think they would very much enjoy this book Reviewed for THC Reviews Early Dawn isnother sweet historical romance from Catherine Anderson that was nearly perfect in every way The hero nd heroine re very much the focus of the story
