In this sizzling battle of wills, passion becomes front-page news.
He challenged her legacy.
She challenged him to love.
In 1850s South Carolina, ladies with ambition and a penchant for wearing trousers are rare indeed. But that’s Charlotte Whitney all over. Not only does Charlie yearn to resurrect her late father’s newspaper, she wants to be its editor. That position, however, has been handed to Richmond newspaperman Adam Chase. Undeterred, Charlie convinces Adam to teach her the journalism trade. In doing so, she teaches him how to open his heart.
Adam Chase had one goal in mind: to return Edgemont’s newspaper to its former glory and then make tracks back to the big city. But he faces one very tempting obstacle in outspoken Charlie Whitney. The newsroom becomes the battleground for a war between the sexes—until Adam surrenders to Charlie’s sultry charms. Together, they discover that the power of the press doesn’t hold a candle to the power of love.

The loss of her father, owner of the Edgemont newspaper, has Charlotte Whitney determined to be its new editor. Yet the role has been handed to Richmond newspaperman Adam Chase. Yet Charlie is determined to succeed, convincing Adam to teach her all he knows. However, Adam is determined to return the paper back to its former glory yet faces attraction of Charlie, which may threaten all he knows.
Charlie is definitely a determined woman and sets the tone of the novel from the start. She also pushes Adam to realise that there is more to life, whilst he challenges her as well. The novel was entertaining and the friendship that developed between the couple, lovely to watch play out. Both their background stories add to the complexity of this storyline. This will be an entertaining series, and an interesting change from the typical historical romance.
I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
Two interesting characters.
Interesting insight into newspaper world.
1800s in tbe south of the States
I enjoyed seeing the relationship grow between our characters.
When Adam comes in as Editor of the small town newspaper after her father's passing, Charlie is determined not to give him a chance. Even though they're so very different, there's an instant attraction. Charlie is a bit naive and takes all the risk in their affair. While Adam is somewhat self-absorbed, takes no risk, but definitely reaps the rewards.
The story takes a little bit to get into, but all in all was a good book.
Thank you Tracy Summer and NetGalley for allowing me an advance copy for my honest feedback.
Nice book, I enjoyed the characters and their love story. It felt a little long, not sure how many pages because of the digital form but I caught myself thinking we should be close to the end and I was only %50 through.
The start of a new series. At first the story seemed like something that I had read in the past. It did take a few chapters before I got into the book. The characters are wonderful, Chase is an editor that has relocated to a small town in South Carolina. He has a past that has left him a unbeliever of love. Charlie, short for Charlotte worked with her father at the local newspaper. Her father raised her to think for herself, be self-reliant. Which the town frowned upon. Charlie beloved father passes and Chase takes over running the newspaper. He admires Charlie determination, her spunk, her I don’t care want they think.
The sparks begin to fly between the two, but due to a article Charlie wrote, Chase needs to return to Richmond. He decides it’s safer to take Charlie with him. Or is it? Things heat up between the two, but Chase can’t let go of the past. I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an Advance Reader Copy of this story..
