CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Set in the Montana Territory and Kansas Prairie, author Linda Hubalek crafted a sweet clean romance filled with emotion. I could see the country, forts, and towns from her vivid descriptions.
During a time of prejudice to the Indian Nations, Hubalek faces these issues head-on smoothly and graciously. As a result, the romance between Nolan and Holly faces many challenges, including Holly’s lack of self-esteem. Nolan will battle her insecurities as well as prejudice from the community and his grandparents.
In addition, Hubalek crafted many story lines threads, which she skillfully wove together. With twists and turns, misunderstandings, and heart-felt emotion, Nolan’s Vow is a wonderful romance of the heart.
The pace of the story was in line with the length of the book. Most noteworthy, Hubalek did not include fluff to fill her page nor did she use sex to sell this book. A good story will carry itself without lascivious elements and filler.
