Claim - Review

My Review:

The word "Claim" can imply quite a bit. It can mean that someone has located some gem in a mine somewhere and therefore requires a "claim" to ensure ownership of the property. It can also mean ownership like of a person. It the book, Claim, by Lisa T. Bergren, the third and final in the series of The Homeward Trilogy, the definition fits both circumstances.

We pick up the story of Dominic "Nic" St. Clair as he finds himself being offered a 50% share in a prospective gold mine. All the owner, Peter Vaughn needs is someone to help him get the gold out. Yet when Nic decides to venture a look into the mine, he finds his son, Everett abandoned on a horse with the story his father was murdered as he collaspes into Nic's arms. Sharing the property of this gold mine is another homesteader, Sabine LaCrosse who has had to fight to keep men off her property and out of trying to claim her mine as their own. Seems like women of her race and nationality have no rights to their mines as far as the men in her town are concerned. However Nic can't seem to keep his attention off of her and in trying to make sure that no harm comes to Sabine.

Meanwhile the story overlaps in the lives of Nic's sisters Moria St. Clair who was burned in the second novel, Sing, finds herself waiting on a man who may not be able to see past her physical scars to the love she has for him. Perhaps the call of the city is once more beckoning Moria back to the lights of singing once more. Yet being with a child from a man who wanted only to see her prosper, and then dying while attempting to leave her, wonders if she can go back to the life of her past once more.

I received this book, Claim, by Lisa T. Bergren, to review for B & B Media, for my honest review. Having read the second in the series Sing, I couldn't wait to read this one knowing how much I loved her previous book and the lives of the St. Clair family. I was not disappointed except in knowing that this book finalizes the story of the characters. However Lisa will remain a favorite author of mine and I can't wait to see what she comes out with next. This book can easily be read as a stand alone or when read as the final book in the Homeward Trilogy after reading Breath, and then Sing. If you love western romance as much as I do, then once again, you will not be disappointed. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
