Nothing is Fair in Love and War ✓
Katherine always had shoes to fill. As the eldest child at the ripe old age of seventeen, she was expected to marry young, marry well, and be a respectable housewife in 1862. However, to her little sister's chagrin, she's much more interested in a good book than a man.
That is until she meets Sam. Dark, brooding, and distant, he's a book character in himself. A legend everyone warns her to stay away from. The only catch: how can she know to stay away from him if no one has seen him in years? When no one knows what he looks like now? When the two meet for the first time, she doesn't know who he is until she's already fascinated by him. Could he be different from what everyone says?
But even her friend James, "Red", warns her against Sam. Red, who she's grown up with by her side their entire lives. Red, who she tells everything. Red, her best friend. Red who may have deeper feelings for her than she realizes.
But when Katherine sets her heart on something, she will go to all lengths to get what she wants.
