“Heather Snow is one of those historical romance authors that you may have not heard much about but you should be taking a closer look NOW.” ~Under the Covers

Heather Snow is one of those historical romance authors that you may have not heard much about but you should be taking a closer look NOW.  Her stories are tightly written, very original, full of romance and some intrigue.  Her characters are always complex, multi-dimensional and very smart.  She writes some of the smartest and most awesome heroines ever!

Now that I can stop gushing…let me tell you about the story.  Gabriel thinks he’s going mad.  He’s come back from war a bit touchy and his condition just seems to worsen to the point that his family locks him in an institution.  And during all that time, the girl he’d crushed on and fantasized about is married to his cousin.

Penelope was a sweet society girl who married the dashing artist, Michael.  But Michael wasn’t right and she soon found herself in a marriage with a madman.  After his death she took it upon herself to research the maladies of the mind, and has tried to help soldiers who have come back from the war with problems.

Gabriel’s family asks her to intervene and see if there’s any hope for Gabriel to get better and she soon finds herself in that institution with a version of Gabriel she doesn’t recognize.  And one that is not scared to tell her how much he’s always wanted her.

Their romance was almost perfect.  While Penelope finds a way to help Gabriel with his issues, they also slowly realize how good they fit together in almost every level.  I liked Gabriel even when he had a fit.  He’s a genuine hero, good at heart, a true gentleman, selfless sometimes.  Even amongst his “madness”.

Penelope, on the other hand, is strong willed and she’s lived through enough that she’s both tough but also knows what she likes and wants and can find that soft side in herself.  I love seeing a strong heroine and sometimes they don’t have to kick ass to show that strength.  That was Penelope.

SWEET MADNESS was another unexpected and absolute favorite.  It had a little bit of everything, a good romance, a sizzling couple, a story full of intrigue and twists and turns.  I can’t wait to read more from this author!
