About the book:

When colonial Williamsburg explodes like a powder keg on the eve of the American Revolution, Lady Elisabeth "Liberty" Lawson is abandoned by her fiance and suspected of being a spy for the hated British. No one comes to her aid save the Patriot Noble Rynallt, a man with formidable enemies of his own. Liberty is left with a terrible choice. Will the Virginia belle turned lacemaker side with the radical revolutionaries, or stay true to her English roots? And at what cost?
Historical romance favorite Laura Frantz is back with a suspenseful story of love, betrayal, and new beginnings. With her meticulous eye for detail and her knack for creating living, breathing characters, Frantz continues to enchant historical fiction readers who long to feel they are a part of the story.

About Laura Frantz:

Laura Frantz is passionate about all things historical, particularly the 18th-century, and writes her manuscripts in longhand first. Her stories often incorporate Scottish themes that reflect her family heritage. She is a direct descendant of George Hume, Wedderburn Castle, Berwickshire, Scotland, who was exiled to the American colonies for his role in the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715, settled in Virginia, and is credited with teaching George Washington surveying in the years 1748-1750. Frantz lives and writes in a log cabin in the heart of Kentucky.According to Publishers Weekly, "Frantz has done her historical homework." With her signature attention to historical detail and emotional depth, she is represented by Janet Kobobel Grant, Literary Agent & Founder, Books & Such Literary Agency of Santa Rosa, California.Readers can find Laura Frantz at

My Thoughts:

From the moment I opened the book I was transported back to Colonial America. The sights, the sounds, the dialogue between the characters, they all work together drawing you back in time to the Revolutionary period in America. 

At first I thought the story was going to be about Lady Elisabeth and her awful arranged marriage, with that short lived and a plot twist, Lady Elisabeth changes her name to Liberty, and Ms. Frantz then brings on the scene Noble, who is the best hero I've had the pleasure to get to know. Not only are the names Liberty and Noble romantic, their story is too. Let me just say that Ms. Frantz not only knows how to name her characters she also knows how to weave a beautiful romance around them too.

Besides being totally captivated by the romance, I felt as though I was rubbing shoulders with George Washington, Patrick Henry, and other patriots who are responsible for the creation and defending of America.

Bottom Line:

This book is about nobility, love, and sacrifice, with the backdrop of the Revolutionary conflict. The book moves along nicely, it is not rushed, nor is it slow. Noble is now my favorite hero. His love and care of Liberty are what romance is all about. As a lover of history this book nailed it on the head. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of it.

About the book:

After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It's a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke--men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew looking for an experienced guide. When his guide appears, Sion balks. He certainly didn't expect a woman. But it is not long before he must admit that Tempe's skill in the wilderness rivals his own. Still, the tenuous tie they are forming is put to the test as they encounter danger after danger and must rely on each other.
