review of The Woman on the Painted Horse by Angela Christina Archer

The Woman on the Painted Horse by Angela Christina Archer

Description from Amazon:  Alexandra Monroe is a slave smuggler, smuggling slaves north where they can live as free people. Her crime is sedition and her punishment, if caught, is death. The daughter of one of the wealthiest men in Montgomery, Alexandra lives a life not by her own accord, but a life she willingly accepts for her secret quest to save the lives of slaves.
One afternoon, Alexandra comes face-to-face with handsome William Graysden. Although forbidden for his Creek Indian heritage, he captivates her. They fascinate one another, and ultimately find in each other a bond they don't wish to ignore. After a series of events, however, William must face the choice to continue the dangerous pursuit of Alexandra's affections or forget about her.

This book was very well written.  The subject matter was kind of hard to read about in places, just because I'm so ashamed at how people used to treat others in the past.  Alexandra finds out quickly that her parents' kind of love is not what she wants for herself and William shows her how real love is supposed to be.  It was refreshing to not have all the steam that some authors are putting in their books.  It didn't take away from the romance of the story at all.

I highly recommend this book.  It was a very enjoyable read.
