  • I thought this book was average at best until the last three chapters. I love a sweet and satisfying ending, and this one has that, and more!

    The Hostage and now The Mistress read more like fiction than romance novels, but there is just enough romance to keep me, an avid romance fan, interested.

    The books take place during the Great Chicago fire of 1871, and I have enjoyed reading about this time in our nation's history through these characters eyes.

    Katherine was the best part of this book. Not entirely good, she "faked" her position in the beginning of the book, but certainly not all bad. She seemed real to me. Wanting more, as we all do, but in the end realizing that what she most wanted, Dylan, had nothing to so with money.

    Dylan was also likable because he had survived so much. I understood his con ways because of his need to survive. His reformation was the best part of this book.

    Overall, the ending provided me all I need to recommend this book wholeheartedly!

  • Susan Wiggs is not only a gifted storyteller but an excellent writer. She had me feeling the heat from the flames as the wind threw the sparks at my face. Her description of her characters had me disgusted one minute and cheering the next. I wondered what it would have been like to be in Chicago that might and the year after. But mostly I loved watching the characters discover who they really were and what they really wanted. Good for anyone who loves history and discovering the wonderful depths of human relationships.

  • It was a gift.

  • Excellent. Hostage is the first book then Mistress then Firebrand and they are all very good. Susan Wiggs is a wonderful author.
    Any and all of her books are worth reading . I have purchased many of her books for gifts and they have been well received.

  • It is my least favorite of the series but I still enjoyed it. Her books can seem to drag a bit but I always am glad when I read to the end.

  • Heated Series: All of the trilogy on the Chicago Fire are interesting historically and as usual feature romance.
    SW writes well and I buzzed through all of these books enjoying each one.

  • I was surprised how Kathleen, a lowly chambermaid, became a highlight. Mr. Kennedy, a sly one, never to be tamed is a great character. Susan Wiggs keeps the reader interested throughout.

  • Well written and moving, with light laughter and some sore feelings. Really enjoyable reading
