  British Occupied Manhattan, 1777. American actress Jenny Leighton has been packing the John Street Theater with her witty comedies, but she longs to escape the provincial circuit for the glamour of the London stage. When the playwright General John Burgoyne visits the city, fresh from a recent success in the capitol, she seizes the opportunity to court his patronage. But her plan is foiled by British intelligence officer Severin Devere. Severin’s mission is to keep the pleasure-loving general focused on the war effort…and away from pretty young actresses. But the tables are turned when Severin himself can’t resist Jenny Leighton… Months later, Jenny has abandoned her dreams of stage glory and begun writing seditious plays for the Rebels under the pen name “Cornelia,” ridiculing “Gentleman Johnny” Burgoyne and his army—and undermining the crown’s campaign to take Albany. With Jenny’s name now on the hanging list, Severin is ordered to find her—and deliver her to certain death. Soon, the two are launched on a desperate journey through the wilderness, toward an uncertain future shaped by the revolution—and their passion for each other…

Review: The first thing I have to say about this book, is how stunning the cover is. It really made me want to read the book.

I'm one of those people that really love a gorgeous cover and I love when the book is just as gorgeous, and this one definitely is, especially for those that love historical romance. When I say historical romance, I mean the kind that are deeply rooted in history, as this book is.

I'm not usually a fan of American history, but I really loved this book and I really immersed myself in the Revolutionary War time period.

The characters were beautifully written and Jenny and Severin (I love that name, btw) were a wonderful pair that had to overcome a lot of obstacles before they could have their HEA.

Great reading!
