This week, I'm introduing my good friend and fantabulous author, Louise M. Gouge. She's graciously offered to give away a free copy of her latest release, The Captain's Lady, to one lucky person. Here's a bit more about Louise and about her book. (including my review!)
Captain James Templeton's orders from General Washington are clear. His target: Lord Bennington, a member of George III's Privy Council. The assignment: find Bennington's war plans. The risks: the future of the East Florida Colony, Jamie's life...and his heart. In spite of the dangers of their hopeless situation, he's fallen in love with Lady Marianne Moberly, Lord Bennington's daughter.
Desperate to protect his country, Jamie carries out his orders with a heavy heart. But Marianne's persistence is a challenge he never expected. With love and faith, they must navigate troubled waters to win their future together.
Ms. Gouge's books just keep getting better and better. I absolutely adored this latest story of forbidden love. How can a lowly American ship captain ever hope to obtain the hand of a British Earl's daughter, especially when their two countries are at war? Set during the start of the American Revolution, this book has it all. Espionage, intrigue, romance, and adventure both on land and on sea. Complete with a happy ending that will leave you with a satisfied sigh. Louise Gouge's writing is like a fine wine: elegant, rich, flavorful and warming all over.
