About the Book:
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 and her love for her country.
Three words to describe this book- adventure, adventure, adventure! From the onset of the story readers are whisked away and captured with Emeline onboard an enemy British ship. Aspiring artist, brave captor, and devoted American, Emeline uses her wits to outsmart the enemy by posing as a British loyalist stalling until she can concoct an escape plan for herself and fellow Americans taken captive. This tactic, however, causes tension to build between her and her handsome self-appointed protector, Lieutenant Owen Masters, who despite himself and his rogue ways finds himself falling for her. Through bouts of aiding the "enemy", weathering a sea storm, and acting as spies Emeline and Owen find at the end of their perilous journey to love that they aren't so different after all. Exciting from Chapter 1 to the last page!
