A Heart’s Disguise (Thomas Nelson, March 2015)

In the aftermath of the Civil War, a young woman searches for her lost love at the edge of the West.

The Civil War has destroyed Sarah Montgomery’s marriage before it’s even begun.

After Sarah receives word that her fiancé, Rand Campbell, has been killed fighting for the Union, her brothers and ailing father persuade her to pledge herself to Ben Croftner—despite her strong misgivings. But when Sarah finds out that Rand is in fact alive—and that Ben Croftner knew it—she indignantly breaks off the engagement and goes in search of Rand.

But Ben Croftner does not take rejection lightly—and a single woman with a sick father makes an easy target. When Sarah is abducted by her treacherous fiancé, Rand finally comes to her aid . . . only to reveal that he has been posted at Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and intends to take her there as his wife.

But could Sarah leave her dying father’s side for the love of her life? And what plans are forming in the jealous heart of Ben Croftner?

“This suspenseful post-Civil War historical (the first volume in a six-part series) by Coble (‘Rock Harbor‘ series) will keep the author’s growing audience on edge with its intense quick pace; the cliff-hanger ending will leave them eagerly awaiting the next installment.” —Library Journal

The tension is high and, fortunately, readers don’t have to wait long before the next installment to discover what happens.

The Story Behind The Journey of the Heart series

Interview with Lena Nelson Dooley



    I was not super impressed with this book. I think the author could have thought of a more original story and made the characters really worth reading about. For me this one just did not hit home.

    A Heart’s Disguise by Colleen Coble begins an intriguing and historical six-part serial (A Journey of the Heart) with a post-Civil War setting and uncertain romance. An overall quick and enjoyable afternoon read, it is one I would recommend to fans of novellas and historical romance.

    This is the first serialized novel I’ve ever read, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. A Heart’s Disguise is intriguing, but it feels very incomplete … for good reason! I read the entire thing (which is only 90 pages) in about an hour, and I am anxious to read more.

    Colleen Coble has been a favorite author of mine for several years now, and when I was given the opportunity to review the re-release of her very first series, I knew I had to jump at it. Over the next few months you will find my thoughts about the series here on the blog. The first book, A Heart’s Disguise, was a fantastic book. For only 96 pages, there are a number of great twists and turns, and a great cliff hanger, perfect to become excited about the next book in the series. It is the perfect book to read while waiting for appointments or when your child is at an after-school activity!
    The characters are all fantastic, and the story line will have you excited as well. It is obviously a quick read, with wonderful descriptions of the setting, and it is a fantastic re-introduction for current fans of Coble’s work, and a fantastic introduction to her work for new readers.
    I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

    What happens when you lose your one true love? Can you move on with your life with someone that you have no feelings for? Is wealth and recognition more important than a life filled with love and a good character? What happens when someone that is suppose to love you and only to find out they have have been dishonest and committed the ultimate betrayal? Can someone rise from the dead? Will Sarah and Rand be together or will the lies of Ben Coftner split them apart? You will have to read the series to find out the answer these questions.

    I see these mini-series type of one novel an excellent opportunity for people who don’t have time to sit down and read a full length novel, but has time for a Novella or a Mini-Series.

    I enjoyed reading this book and it left me wanting more of the story since it’s only 90 pages and part one. I liked all the characters and I can’t wait to find out what happens with Sara, Rand, Ben and their families. This series is set in the time period right after the Civil War in Indiana.

    There are lots of twists and turns and things get very complicated. This is a short book – 96 pages – so it would be hard not to give away the whole story if going into it more. The book ends on a cliff-hanger, obviously, since there will other books to this series.

    It was a quick and delightful read and perfect for those lazy days when you just want to read a good book for a bit. I really enjoyed this story and am anxious to read the next in the series to see what happens.

    The drama is thick and the emotions, well, just plain crazy. Sarah was a well formed character hurting from the loss of her fiance only to joyously discover he is alive and yet then be rejected by him. Rand is waaay too emotional. He is the definition of rollercoaster. He needed to take a breath, relax and think a little. It is hard to see why Sarah fell for him in the first place.

    ‘A Heart’s Disguise’ does give us a brief glimpse into Coble’s writing voice and style. I haven’t read anything else by her before, so I can only assume her writing improved since this first story. However, this one? Not great. It had a lot of potential and I am still excited to read the next installment in April. I’m optimistically rating it with 3 stars. Keep an eye out for my review next month for further thoughts!!

    I received a copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

    A Heart’s Disguise is a very short novella at just 90 pages(not counting the 1st chapter of the 2nd book). I was able to read this in one sitting & I found myself instantly connected to Sara, the main character.

    A Heart’s Disguise by Colleen Coble is an exciting beginning to a 6-part series due out this year. This first book, set in post-Civil War Indiana, contains a love triangle and lots deception.

    Sarah Montgomery is still in love with Rand, but the entire town believes Rand passed away in the Civil War. When Rand rides into town on the day before Sarah’s wedding-of-convenience to Ben, secrets and deceptions are exposed. Sarah clearly has her heart set on Rand, but it is not clear that Rand be able to see through his own anger and hurt.

    The characters are interesting and the setting is wonderful, so I am looking forward to the rest of the books. A Heart’s Disguise is quite small at 96 pages, so I’m not sure why this story is being released as a series instead of as one large novel?

    It’s hard to review this novella. I usually read the book descriptions when I request a book for review and have often forgotten it by the time I come to read the book. But this time I hadn’t, because the book description was right there in the front—which was a shame, because it wasn’t a teaser. It was a plot

    The result was a novella where I kept waiting for something to happen. And waiting. And waiting. The writing was good, and the characters had potential, but the two plot twists in the story (Rand being alive, Ben hiding that from everyone, and Ben trying to kidnap Sarah) were covered in the book description, which took away any suspense the story might have had.

    Colleen Coble is one of my favorite contemporary authors. She has an amazing way of drawing you into a story and keeping your interest the whole way through.

    She has a wonderful new series of book that if they are all like the first one, is going to be a fun reading journey! This is a great introduction to the characters and community in this 6 part series. The book, or better, novella, is short. It’s 96 pages long, so it is a very quick read. I think it is perfect for when you have to sit and wait for a while somewhere. The book is small enough to fit in your purse and carry it along!

    I’m looking forward to learning more about these wonderful characters in a real town I live pretty close to, Wabash, IN (which by the way, is where Colleen lives).

Filled with what fans of Coble have come to expect — well-researched historical details, well-developed characters and a decidedly romantic thread, A Heart’s Disguise is a quick read sure to whet your appetite for more.

    A Heart’s Disguise was an enjoyable read for all of the 30 minutes it took me to start and finish it;-) This novella has only 96 pages, but they are 96 pages well used! The story was engaging and the characters were very well displayed given the short amount of time we were able to meet them. The only issue I really had with A Heart’s Disguise was that….

    Can you imagine the surprise when Rand reappears and is shocked to find out that Sarah has not waited for him? He thought she loved him, as he still loves her, but now she is engaged to marry Ben? He knows that Ben knew he was alive, so how could this be possible. He had even sent a letter with Ben to give to Sarah. Um, I bet you can guess that Ben is not a very nice man, and he goes on to prove it again, and again, the deeper we get into the book.

    I first read these books when they were titled Where Leads The Heart and Plains Of Promise, and I remember being awed by Colleen’s mastery of her craft. I’m no less wowed now. The back of the book kind of gives away most of the plot of the first installment in this series, which is unfortunate. But it doesn’t detract from the enjoyment of actually reading the book at all, and in some ways I found it interesting to see how the story actually plays out. The only thing I did not enjoy about this book was Rand’s reaction to Sarah upon his return. I don’t want to give away too much, but to be honest, he acted like a short-sighted jerk, only changing his mind when an opportunity presented itself for him to swoop in to rescue her. I’m hoping he shapes up in future installments. I liked the book!

    I love the way that Coble integrates history and geography as part of a book’s setting. I found myself getting very frustrated with Sarah, then cut her some slack when I remembered that she’s only 19 years old and expected to make adult decisions. Sarah also lives in a very male-dominated world, so she depends on the men in her life (father, brother, husband) for financial support. If you’re not happy with cliffhangers, beware! There are six of these novellas in all, and there’s definitely going to be some suspense! I’m not sure yet what to make of all this mess, because it all happens so very quickly, but I’m already looking forward to the next book (A Heart’s Obsession). If you complain that you don’t have time to read, this series is perfect for you because each book is so short!

    In a short 100 pages, Coble has caused me to love these characters already and to care about what happens to them.
    And while I will not give away any spoilers, I will tell you that in 100 short pages, I cried, I cringed and I cared. When a writer can cause so much emotion in such a short time- it is nothing short of magnificent!

    This story is part of a six book series and I will be reading and reviewing all six books. I was very excited to sign up for this/ I love to read series’ and I love Colleen Coble.

    This story was a very quick read (I read in one afternoon) – it was sweet and cute, but unfortunately not all that exciting for me. It was not bad, and I am looking forward to reading the next one in the series, but I do feel it could have been better.

    The conversations I think is what did it for me. They didn’t seem real, they were forced and fake. I didn’t like either of the male characters and I am hoping that at least Rand will win me over in the next book.
    I did like the storyline, it was original and had some good twists to it.
    I felt like the ending was very rushed. I know this was a short story (90 pages) but maybe if she had added 25 more?
    This book did get good reviews so far from amazon, so I know I am just being picky. I am hoping the next one will be better for me.

    Thank you Litfuse for sending me this book for my honest review.

    When Arthur Conan Doyle wrote his Sherlock Holmes stories they ran in The Strand Magazine. And when he wrote the full length novels they had to be serialized to run which meant that “The Hound Of The Baskervilles” took a full year. The good news is that, while the Journey Of The Heart is also being serialized, it will not take that long”as the whole series is only six parts. “A Heart’s Disguise” is a great way to begin. The Civil War is over however Rand, The love of Sarah’s life, did not come back. So she is going to marry Ben. There is a whole lot going on in the ninety pages of story that you are going to want to read for yourself. Ms. Coble knows how to write characters that come alive off the page. This is a fast-paced read that will keep you guessing as to what is really going on.

    I am thrilled to be able to read Colleen’s first book and I really enjoyed the first installment, “A Heart’s Disguise.” I have mixed feelings as to the book being split into 6 separate short books as I finished book 1 so quickly and it leaves the reader hanging for a month until book 2 arrives. Yet on the other hand, this allows me to really savor each part of the story instead of rushing right through the book if it was all together in one. I enjoy reading books around the Civil War time period and Colleen did a great job with setting the scene as the characters are dealing with the aftermath of the war, both emotionally and physically.

    If you are looking for a new series to get hooked on and you enjoy historical fiction this one might be the one for you! Even though this is a novella the author does a wonderful job of developing the beginning of what I believe is going to be a great series. The ideal aspect of a series of novellas is that you can take a couple hours one afternoon and read the entire novella. Hopefully this series will introduce more readers to Colleen Coble’s work. I firmly believe that the more of her work I read, the more I enjoy her writing style and her ability to weave together intrigue and romance and produce a wonderful story as the end product.

    This story was actually much better than I had imagined. I’m not fond of war or post war stories. Just me, nothing about the stories. But I took a chance on A Heart’s Disguise and I’m glad I did. I really felt for Sarah struggling with her father’s illness and the loss of her fiance, ready to settle thinking this is the best she can get. And then her obnoxious older brother!

    It is vintage Coble — danger lurking around every corner, a villainous villain, a thwarted hero and an earnest heroine who finds herself caught in the middle of conflict…and danger. Did I mention the danger? And the snake-in-the-grass villain? Grrr. You won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough and when you come to the end you find that it isn’t. There’s still much more to come.

    I loved the writing in this story. I connected with the characters from the start and I found that I was eagerly turning the page in anticipation of what would happen next. Set in Washbash, Indiana in 1865, the stage is set for a very interesting, civil war era romance.

    Sarah despair over her fiance’s death is overshadowed by an obligation to provide for her younger brother as her mother has died and her father is in poor health. This arrangement serves as a catalyst for Sarah to agree to a convenient marriage. When she agrees to marry Ben, it isn’t out of love but rather, it is out of duty.

    I really connected with Sarah and I felt for her. She wanted so badly to care for everyone around her and pushed her own feelings aside to do what she felt she had to. I really can’t wait to see how this story progresses. Be on the lookout for our future review of A Heart’s Obsession in April, 2015

    As a long-time fan of Colleen Coble’s books, I was thrilled to be included in the blog tour for her six-book series, Journey of the Heart. The first book of the series, “A Heart’s Disguise” is just the beginning of Sarah and Rand’s story and it left me wanting more. I anxiously await the next installment so I can learn what happens next.

    A letter from the author informs her readers that these books were her very first and have been re-released after being out for print for quite a few years. Although Colleen has written many books since this series, her talent was so evident even in her earliest efforts and are more confirmation of why I love her books.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed A Heart’s Disguise. It is a very short story – just under 100 pages. It’s a great book that had me from the beginning. Every time I thought I knew what would happen next, there would be a plot twist. There were twists and turns on every page. The ending of the book was a definite cliff-hanger, and I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book of this series.

    I was ecstatic to hear that Colleen Coble’s publisher was going to re-release her first published series, “Journey of the Heart”. The first book in the series is A Heart’s Disguise and I absolutely loved it.

    It is the story of Sara Montgomery and Rand Campbell and is set in Wabash, Indiana in October 1865. The Civil War has ended and Sara has been mourning the loss of her one true love, Rand Campbell for over five months. Her father has been told he doesn’t have long to live and it is his wish that his daughter Sara be married before he dies. His choice is Ben Croftner. But the question is, can Sara love Ben enough to give her heart to him? What if Rand isn’t really dead? These answers can be found within this wonderful book.

    This first novella draws us into the plot line. I had compassion for Sarah, reluctant yet feeling forced into an engagement. I hurt along with Rand, dismayed that the one he loved did not wait for him. And we have an angry villain swearing revenge to liven things up. It seems like the romance is doomed to failure so I am waiting for the sequel to find out if love can win out.

    I know that in a serialized novel, there will usually be a bit of a cliffhanger ending, or at the very least, an ending that will leave me wanting more of the story. That is true in this book. I am definitely looking forward to the next installment, A Heart’s Obsession.

    Another thing I hope for in a shorter novella or serial novel is a book that has main characters who are still emotionally well-developed. I want to form some sort of bond with them, even if it is in a shorter span of time. A Heart’s Disguise also fulfilled that request as well.

    I really enjoyed this first book of Colleen Coble’s serialized novel series entitled Journey of the Heart and I am looking forward to reading the other five stories.

    This novel has definitely given me a craving for more from Colleen and I can’t wait to pick up the remaining books in this series. I am a huge lover of western romances, reading Louis L’Amour books back in high school. This one is fit right into that wheelhouse for me and I love how much Sara is willing to sacrifice her own personal happiness for her father and family even though she knows she will never be truly happy without Rand. It is believable because with choices being so limited for women back then, they really didn’t have much of a say so in what their futures would be aside from a wife and mother. This one for me rates a 5 out of 5 stars and offers a sneak peek into A Heart’s Obsession at the conclusion of this book.

    Colleen Coble is one of my absolute favorite authors. Her stories are always full of twists, turns, intrigue, romance, and the Lord. So I jumped at the chance to review her Journey of the Heart series. From the first page of this book, I was hooked. If you’ve read Where Leads The Heart, then this story will be familiar to you. That being said, I look forward to re-reading this fantastic story!

    Going into reading this book I knew that the ending would come fast and probably leave me hanging-it’s only 96 pages. This is part one of six in the Journey of the Heart Collection so instead of everything being in one big book it’s split up. I’m not sure why publishers decide to do this because from what I can see I think it’s frustrates readers more than anything.

    It’s really difficult to rate this book because I felt like it was more of a prologue than a book itself. But I think four stars is a fair rating. Sarah is stuck in between the interests of two men and they both want to win her heart. Sarah irritated me a bit but I really love Rand’s character and actions. He does the opposite of what I would expect in the end and that made this book collection promising.

    Well it certainly is a good thing the book is a serial because I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN.

    From the author’s letter on page 1 to the sneak peek at book 2 – you will be hooked!

    The story will hold you in it’s grip and make you desperate for each new chapter.

    You may find your eyes racing ahead and your fingers itching to turn pages…

    And it is almost impossible to believe that this is part of a series that Colleen wrote so very long ago.

    Exceptional characters… intricate plot… beautiful detail…

    WOW! Just WOW!

    At 90 pages (I’m not including the excerpt for A Heart’s Obsession), this is very short novella. I read all of it this morning before I finished one cup of coffee. It’s definitely different than the author’s other writings, the plot feels like it came from a western pulp magazine from the 30s’ & 40s’. I instantly felt connected to main character, Sara, and the situation she finds herself in. The hero, Rand, is also well-written for the most part. Overall, A Heart’s Disguise is an intriguing start to a new series. I enjoyed reading it and I recommend it to others.

    I knew that it was a part of a series, but I thought that it would be a stand-alone story, like so many novellas that I read, Instead this book cuts off in the middle of the action, and the reader has to wait for the rest, in the remaining 5 installments.

    Furthermore, once I did find out that it is all one continuing story, I was even more surprised because the book reads like a novella, in that the characters and situations aren’t developed very fully. I was surprised that Rand had so little sympathy for Sara’s situation even after his brother told him the truth of it. He seems all over the place, with the reader not getting to see any of the insights to help us understand his motivations, etc.

    Wow! This novella is only 90 pages, but that was an intense 90 pages. This series is actually a serialized novel. This is the first of six installments.

    I admit, I was skeptical that this little book would be able to hook me and get me excited about this series. I had no reason to be. This book far exceeded my expectations. The writing was excellent, There was action and intrigue and romance pretty much from page one. I love the characters, who feel vivid and real, even having spent a limited amount of time with them so far. I have to say, although I understand both Sarah and Rand’s perspectives, I’m so frustrated with them and where they stand at this point. I’m very excited to see where this series goes. I can’t wait for the next installment! My one tiny complaint would be that I really don’t think the cover does this book justice at all. It looks far too tame in my opinion.

    Journey of the Heart is Cobles 6 book series that just came out. A Heart’s Disguise is book one and you don’t want to miss it.

    I do however have a problem with book one it is way to short, I wanted to keep on reading and before I knew it I was on the last page. Great characters and super storyline.

    I gave the book 4 stars and can’t wait for book two.

    I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.

    Mystery, deceit and more awaits readers in the first of six books that will captivate the heart and imagination of all. Whether one is familiar or not with Colleen’s books, this series is one to read and follow to its conclusion! The novella is well-written by an author who shares her heart with readers in an introduction section that sheds insight into the heart and life and what incident happened that inspired the series. Don’t pass this series up or you’ll regret it the moment you hear others sharing what they enjoyed about A Heart’s Desire!

    I’ll be upfront, I’m not sure I like the 6 part format. I feel that it is just too short! It was well written and easy to read, but it was over much too soon, and I have a sinking feeling that things are going to get much worse before they get better for poor Sara!

    It is a good start to the series, but I simply feel that breaking this story into 6-parts it just too many. I think maybe a number like 3 or 4 might have been more fitting, but that’s just me. But I will definitely be waiting for the net installment, so I can find out what will happen next!

    I like that A HEART’S DISGUISE doesn’t begin with a death, but it still has the somber dying/depressed tone to it at the beginning, despite the barn dance. Rand and Sarah have a lot of misunderstandings between them—a new published authors standby to increase tensions. This is (as I mentioned before) Ms. Coble’s first published book republished to introduce new readers to her books.

    This book was okay, but most definitely not Ms. Coble’s best. It is amateur compared to her more recent books. But if you like historical romances, and if you like serials, you will probably love A HEART’S DISGUISE.
