A thrilling adventure set in the Revolutionary War!

I had a pre-release opportunity to read Carla Capshaw's exciting Revolutionary War romance, The Duke's Redemption, and let me say that I was NOT disappointed. This book has everything readers want and expect in a historical romance: danger, excitement, history (but not too much), a compelling hero and heroine, and a situation that threatens to destroy their love. The eternal romance question rings true in this book: How will these two lovers ever get together???

Because I am in the midst of writing my third Revolutionary War romance for Love Inspired Historicals, this period holds great interest for me. This book kept me interested from beginning to end. It's a wonderful time in history, and I find it more than inspiring to revisit what our Founding Fathers and Mothers went through to establish our country. . .and find love in the midst of difficult times.

The Duke's Redemption is in your local bookstores right now, so I suggest you hurry over and buy it!

Here's the blurb:
He came to the colonies for one reason: revenge. Drake Amberly, Duke of
Hawk Haven, won't leave South Carolina until he's unmasked the colonial
spy who killed his brother. Yet the more he sees of spirited Elise Cooper,
the more he's moved by the happiness she brings him…never suspecting the
dangerous secret she hides.

Her faith drives Elise to spy for the rebels, dreaming only of freedom for
her homeland. Then she meets Drake, and learns that love could be hers, as
well. When his pursuit of "The Fox" brings him dangerously close to the
truth, she'll risk everything to prove that love and forgiveness are all
they need.

Find The Duke's Redemption at your local bookstore or online:
ISBN-10: 0373828284
ISBN-13: 978-0373828289

Interesting, the storyline sounds similar to JM Hochstetler's Daughter of Liberty. I enjoyed that one, and I'd probably enjoy this one too. :)
