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.



I dare say that I could quite feel my heart beating out of my chest at times through out this adventure. The revolutionary war era is my favorite historical time period and I hardly find a novel entwined in that time that I enjoy, but that was not the case with this novel. I very much so enjoyed the experience of reading into the lives of Duke Drake Amberly and his true love, the espionage Fox for the Patriots Elise Cooper.


The things that one would do to save the life of her sister meet with the things that one would do to receive vengeance for the life of his brother and they are stalled with the question of is their love strong enough to endure the past? Knowing from the beginning that they would fall in love, it was difficult not being able to turn the pages fast enough. Such a complicated situation, it is hard to even suggest what the outcome could be.


Author Carla Capshaw kept my attention wrapped around each page and continuing chapter and I am so glad to have entered her into my favorite author list. I enjoyed this novel and I will definitely be on the look out for more.
