With the help of half-Seminole Indian, Hunter (Wolf) Prophitt, Cait McCandless flees New Orleans and the manipulations of her father for a new beginning in the Florida wilderness. Soon after her arrival, however, her dreams of a new life are threatened by an unexpected death, a suspicious business deal, and an imminent Indian war.
In a voice that came out sounding infinitely calmer than he felt, he replied, "All of Cotton O'Connor's money couldn't buy Eden. It's far too expensive, and much more than he would be willing to pay. This is a prime piece of land, and the house is one of the best on the river." Crossing his arms on his broad chest, he continued to loll in the doorway, his eyes heavy lidded to conceal his true feelings.
With angry tears choking her voice, she asked, "How do you know he wouldn't pay it? Papa is always looking for good investments. What is the price of Eden?"
Wolf's eyes drank in the sight of her, lingering on her every feature. When he spoke he hoped his voice would not betray him, and to his surprise, it came out flat and totally devoid of emotion.
Romance Junkies Review
"Once in a great while a book will come along that not only touches our hearts but our souls as well; THE PRICE OF EDEN is one of those books. As I read this incredible love story I felt like I was right there with Cait, discovering all the new things she was seeing and the feelings she was having. I would definitely recommend THE PRICE OF EDEN to anyone who likes a touching love story that will stay in your hearts for a long time to come."

"This was a wonderful book to read. It was refreshing to see the female character, Cait, grow from a spoiled child, to a woman who truly learned to care for others around her. It was wonderful also to see the male character, Hunter, learn he didn’t have to take everything by force. If you enjoy historical romances set in the 1800’s in Florida, this book will most definitely be the one to read."

"This is a passionate story with two very spirited characters. Their fiery arguments prepare us for the passion they release when they finally come together. The author, Bren Yarbrough Bruhn, details a story that shows how the Indians were provoked into going to war. She brings alive the settings through her descriptive tale. I feel that readers who enjoy historical romances will love this story. The Price of Eden is an emotionally stirring story of love set before an Indian war where we meet and learn to care about the characters on both sides."
Overall rating: 5 hearts!
