When Caroline Whitney receives word that the brother she thought was dead is in fact a prisoner of war, she is frantic to rescue him. On the way to find help, she hides from the Redcoats, but is quickly discovered by a rugged British soldier who claims she must go with him, or be tried for espionage. The world would tell her this man is the enemy, but the veiled secrets in her captor’s eyes reveal he is more than he seems. If she fails to trust, more could be endangered than her life—her heart is bound to be broken a second time.
As a double agent in the service of Washington, British Captain James Higley must keep his true convictions a secret or face being killed as a traitor. On his newest mission, he discovers a courageous woman hiding in a barn, and is forced to capture her, or both their lives will be in jeopardy. When she offers her compliance in exchange for help in finding her brother, he accepts, despite his inner warnings. He must keep his distance from this alluring Patriot, or risk revealing not only his identity, but the true feelings of his heart.
What a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed this story by a new-to-me author.
First, I was drawn in by the cover, I think it is just beautiful.
But the most important part is the story and whether that can keep my attention and that it did.
The romance was spicy and I loved it. Amber knows how to write a good kissing scene.
Caroline was a strong young woman and I appreciated her perseverance even when things looked horrible.
And James, well, he was just a perfect hero. I kept wanting him to tell Caroline that he was a spy so they could know they were on the same side, but all in good time 🙂
