    1. "This has been a dream. Soon we must wake."Set in 1793, Voyageurs is a gorgeous story about an Englishman newly arrived in Canada from India and the Ojibwe man who takes him on a voyage he won't soon forget. Simon, enlightened for an Englishman of his time and station, longs to see the world, but he also enjoys the finer things in life. He's not used to physical work, and he's certainly never paddled a canoe for 14 hours a day.Christian, the name his English father bestowed upon him in hopes his [...]

    2. 3.5 stars. I've always been fascinated by the voyageurs - traveling by canoe and paddling 14 hours a day (at a rate of 55 strokes per minute), carrying 2 or more packs weighing 90 lbs portaging that canoe for up to a mile over land to the next body of water. Some became voyageurs rather than starve in the streets of Montreal, some were indentured servants. It was a hard life but many loved what they did: I could carry, paddle, walk and sing with any man I ever saw. I have been twenty-four years [...]

    3. This is a short novella about two voyageurs, two men who travel through the wilderness of Canada for thousands of miles in 1793. But their story is not only one of heroism surviving the elements and the dangers of nature, but also a story about falling in love.Christian and William are so different (one an Englishman, the other a half cast Red Indian), but they have a lot in common,too. Their journey of discovering each other was nicely told and interesting and made me happy. But ultimately I wo [...]

    4. 3.5 stars for this sweet historical romance. I enjoyed the slow build but wanted a little more time after !

    5. As someone living in a city that was formerly a Canadian fur trading post I AM SO EXCITED TO READ THIS BOOK! Also, from now on, every time I visit the historical park, I'm going to envision two dudes going at it in the woods. So if you see me at the park, I'll be the one with the smutty smirk on my face leering at the historical interpreters. ;)

    6. 3.5 Stars rounded up. This could really have worked as a longer historical. I loved how Keira Andrews slowly unfolded the half Native American-half English character of Christian; and I thought the English arrogance of Simon came through loud and clear.I thought the ending rushed with the declarations of love, hence my belief that a novella or novel would have worked better for these two men traversing Canada via canoe.

    7. 5+++ OMG, Super HotWanted it to be longer. Need more Simon and Christianrious to follow them on some more amazing adventures. Don't be turned off because it's historical or a short story. Give it a chance.Explore the untamed Canadian wilderness with a gorgeous half Ojibwe, half English native and fall in love like I did.

    8. By the numbers1. I love reading Keira Andrews.2. The book was short but full.3. The ending was a bit abrupt. I could use more. 4. I honestly enjoyed the adventure.

    10. Voyageurs, by Keira Andrews [Torquere Press, 2010], is one of a series called “Spice It Up” wherein each story features a different spice—in this story it is the clever uses of turmeric. Otherwise it is a period story (somewhat historical) set in the year 1793. I make the distinction because, apart from a few historical references—i.e. Upper Canada, the North West Company and the existence of Voyageurs, also coureur des bois—there is very little actual history that one can point to. I [...]

    11. Such a wonderful Historical novella, about two men traveling a long way across Canada during the fall and approaching winter. One is a British an headed to a fort he is to command and the other a guide or voyageur, whose mother is native North American and his father a European who did not stick around. It is a difficult trip, physically, and just as they are nearing the end a near tragedy causes both to consider what is really important.Written in Keira Andrews amazing style, this book is a rer [...]

    12. Great short story, written incredibly well. If you are looking for a satisfying, sexy short read, pick this one up, It's free on .

    13. 4.5 stars. I fell right into this story. It's lyrical and romantic. Then it was over. I could have gone on and on. I wished for more.

    14. The trouble with reviewing historicals is that the language of the times looks so awful on the page for modern readers. Kudos for Andrews for being period appropriate in her depictions of her two protagonists, both in language and in situation - this was well done. One of the sex scenes struck me oddly, but a minor quibble in an otherwise engaging tale.

    15. This short book is a must read. The first 45% or so is spent in getting to know Simon & Christian, as well as a slow build to the sexual tension between the two. Once that tension is broken the pace of the book escalates with events quickly flowing to the end. The budding relationship between the two is sweet, sexy and intense. All in all another awesome short read from the author!

    16. 3.5 starsI don't read a lot of historical now days but I really enjoyed this one. It's short and sweet. Simon and Christian took a bit of time to warm to but I enjoyed their story.

    17. Set in 1793, this novella tells the story of Simon Cavendish, a young man who must get to his new station at an outpost in the Canadian wilderness. He's running late and has missed the main opportunities for transport, but there is one man who's willing to take him on this canoe journey so late in the summer. Christian Smith needs the money desperately, so although he doesn't think much of the man he's going to be stuck with for weeks on end, he takes on the task.Being thrown together, alone, tr [...]

    18. 3.5 stars. This novella, set in 19th century Canada, portrays a classic greenhorn in the wilderness scenario. Jack is fresh from India and confident in his ability to handle anything. He arrives too late in the season, which makes travel more dangerous. He persuades a local guide to take him cross country to the fort he is supposed to man. Attraction and romance ensue, although the rigors of the journey are the main thing. The best part of the story is the strong sense of time and place, the wil [...]

    19. In late 18th century Canada, two men from very different backgrounds make their way through a thousand miles of wilderness while discovering - and soon giving in to - their attraction towards each other. A short standalone novella, this was a quick and fairly entertaining read, but the story and characters just didn't have enough room to develop into anything deeper than a bare sketch and Simon in all his naive idiocy just annoyed me to no end.

    20. I was gung-ho about this short historical up until the 50% mark and then BAM forced sex. Uh, yeah I wasn't into it. I don't mind reading stories with a twist, but I absolutely loathe picking up a story labeled romance and the MC is raped *by* the object of their affection and there's no warning at all for the reader. What could've been a great story quickly took a detour for me due to Christian and Simon's initial sexual encounter.
