My love affair with romance began many years ago when I picked up a historical romance novel in my older sister’s room and started reading. While my interests have spread much wider through the romance genre since that long ago day, I still love going back in time and reading romance as it may have played out in other times. It is with that in mind I highlight a new release from a debut author today!
The Petticoat Letters
by Kelly Lyman
At the outbreak of the Revolutionary war, Nora Bishop’s home is burned to the ground – along with her dreams, plans and all her family members except one. At 20-years-old and still unmarried, she moves to Manhattan to live with her Loyalist uncle, hoping to find her brother who has joined the Patriot cause against her late family’s wishes.
But, battle breaks out and she finds herself at the mercy of one American ranger, Alex Foster, who is the only person in a position to bring her to safety. Her growing feelings toward Alex and his passion for freedom help her re-evaluate her stance on the case for independence and makes her question her loyalties further.
When she is asked to spy for the rebels, she agrees.
But can she partake in the act of treason and do what is asked of her when the sadistic Captain William Roth seems to watch her every move and threatens the life of her brother who has been captured?
And how can she grow closer to Alex when the war threatens to tear them apart?
