Alexandra Turner lives in a world turned upside down. The British are preparing to invade Philadelphia. Her parents are dead from smallpox. Her twin brother, Reid, is more interested in the revolution than he is in his sister.
When the Chevalier de Mont Trignon enters her life, she has no reason to trust the mysterious foreigner. She is drawn to him even as she realizes how little she knows about the elegant yet enigmatic man. Can she trust him with her life? Can she trust him with her heart?
The Chevalier de Mont Trignon, in the service of the King of France, has sailed to America to gauge the Americans’ chance for freedom for himself — and to escape the boredom of the Parisian Court. Enthusiasm for the American cause reignites his passions, as does Alex Turner, a beautiful tavern owner determined to discover his true identity. Keeping her near him and keeping her safe while keeping her curiosity at bay is the truest test of his skills as a chevalier.
In the dangerous world of revolutionary America, where people aren’t always who they seem to be, will the chevalier be Alex’s salvation or her ruin?
About the Author, Mary Jean Adams:
I started writing romance novels a few years ago out of absolute necessity. I kept reading fantastic historical fiction written by male authors. They'd have interesting female characters (occasionally) but they never developed the romance. I've decided to fill the void.
If you like...
American history - especially the Revolution
strong female characters
a little more action and less angst*
you might like my novels.
* Yes, my characters have their share of personal issues, but they're too busy creating a country to wallow!
