Fun & Sweet | The Lieutenant's Bargain by Regina Jennings


Hattie Walker dreams of becoming a painter, while her parents want her to settle down. As a compromise, they give her two months to head to Denver and place her works in an exhibition or give up the dream forever. Her journey is derailed when a gunman attacks her stagecoach, leaving her to be rescued by a group of Arapaho . . . but she's too terrified to recognize them as friendly.

Confirmed bachelor Lieutenant Jack Hennessey has long worked with the tribe and is tasked with trying to convince them that the mission school at Fort Reno can help their children. When a message arrives about a recovered survivor, Jack heads out to take her home--and plead his case once more.

He's stunned to run into Hattie Walker, the girl who shattered his heart--but quickly realizes he has a chance to impress her. When his plan gets tangled through translation, Jack and Hattie end up in a mess that puts her dreams in peril--and tests Jack's resolve to remain single.

Oh, I know I’m about to have some fun when I pick up a book by Regina Jennings. The Lieutenant’s Bargain, the second in her Fort Reno series, is full of misunderstandings and misadventures that had me smiling and laughing the whole time.

Hattie Walker is heading to Denver, Colorado to prove her artistic potential when everything goes wrong—and Lieutenant Jack Hennessey happens to come to her rescue. Only, this rescue has consequences neither Hattie nor Jack could have anticipated, one that challenges both their futures and their feelings.

It was a pleasure to once again visit Fort Reno and get to know Hattie and Jack in the process. Their story is sweet, in addition to being fun, with some valuable lessons, historical and otherwise, mixed in. I enjoyed reading The Lieutenant’s Bargain and recommend it to readers of historical romance.

Thanks to the author, I received a complimentary copy of The Lieutenant’s Bargain and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
