Lieutenant Owen Masters and Emeline Baratt meet on a British warship as sworn enemies. Where will Emeline place her loyalties when forced to spy against her country?
War Forces a Choice Between Love and Country
A trip home from England to Maryland in 1812 finds Emeline Baratt a captive on a British warship and forced to declare her allegiance between the British and Americans. Remaining somewhat politically neutral on a ship where her nursing skills are desperately needed is fairly easy—until she starts to have feelings for the first lieutenant who becomes her protector. However, when the captain sends her and Lieutenant Owen Masters on land to spy, she must choose between her love for him or her love for her country.
I’ve enjoying this series. Each book is written by a different author so some books I enjoy more than others.
This is one enjoyed very much. I haven’t read a book by MaryLu in a long time. I forget how talented she is and how much I loved her stories.
Emaline is a strong character who has to make some tough choices.
Owen is a desirable hero, who is trying to lead a double life.
The reader knows Emaline and Owen’s secret but they don’t know each others secret and I was just waiting for the truth to come out. Chapter after chapter the tension builds as they get buried deeper in their lies.
A wonderful historical romance.
