Publisher: Avon | 2006-02-01 | ISBN: 0060773162 | PDF | 384 pages | 1.09 MB
New author Shana Galen's latest novel has it all. Divided loyalties. Espionage. Intrigue. And a stiff cravat.
American Charlotte Burton has one last chance to restore her family business and repair the family's pride. At the height of the War of 1812, she's risked the conflict-ridden seas to plead for help from an old family friend. But the reunion is interrupted when a sinfully handsome British spy takes her prisoner.
Freddie Dewhurst - hero, unapologetic dandy, and spy. Freddie's one goal is to end the career of an American accused of stealing secret British codes and selling them to the French. But Freddie's quest is interrupted by one red-haired American hellion.
With the security of England at stake, Freddie and Charlotte devise a daring plan that will take them into the highest echelons of power, the farthest limits of passion, and lead to an all out engagement of war. But there's more than one way to engage an enemy!
