They are lovers on opposite sides of a brutal war, with everything at stake and no possibility of retreat. They can trust no one-especially not each other. Major Lord Peter Tremayne is the last man rebel bluestocking Kate Grey should fall in love with, but when the handsome British viscount commandeers her home, Kate throws caution to the wind and responds to his seduction. She is on the verge of surrender when a spy in her own household seizes the opportunity to steal the military dispatches Tremayne carries, ensuring his disgrace-and implicating Kate in high treason. Painfully awakened to the risks of war, Kate determines to put duty ahead of desire and offers General Washington her services as an undercover agent in the City of Brotherly Love. Months later, having narrowly escaped court martial and hanging, Tremayne returns to decadent, British-occupied Philadelphia with no stomach for his current assignment-to capture the woman he believes betrayed him. Nor does he relish the glittering entertainments being held for General Howe's idle officers. Worse, the glamorous woman in the midst of this social whirl, the fiancee of his own dissolute cousin, is none other than Kate Grey herself. And so begins their dangerous dance, between passion and patriotism, between certain death and the promise of a brave new future together.

Professional reviews

"Despite an uneven delivery, listeners will no doubt find something to enjoy in this intriguing romantic story set during the American Revolution. When Quaker and rebel sympathizer Kate Grey's home is commandeered by Royalist troops, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to cavalry officer Major Lord Peter Tremayne. But before they have any time to explore their growing attraction, a spy in their midst steals a precious packet of documents, forcing Peter to run for his life and Kate to become a spy in British-occupied Philadelphia. Narrator Madeleine Lambert's characterizations and accents are distinct, though some inconsistent pronunciations interrupt the flow of the dialogue. More importantly, she doesn't capture the complexities of the characters or convey the significance of the novel's historical events and personal encounters. B.E.K.
