Since the fall of Charles Town, Sarah Mahon has found success as a spy for the partisan militia, until Jack Ashford comes ashore. She soon learns that she cannot judge the enemy by the color of his uniform, because a willing man can be made to change his colors by the right woman. It is a discovery that her rebel father does not share. As she is courted by Lt. Jack Ashford of the Royal Navy, those she thinks are allies actively sabotage the relationship that would take Sarah away from the Low Country she longs to escape. A rash act of rebellion meant to cement an engagement will destroy her plans, but Jack is not so easily discouraged. Even after Sarah marries another to save face, the naval officer will not rest until he has claimed Sarah as his own...at any cost.
While interesting, and the fact it deals with late 18th century as well as Revolutionary War in America, it probably should have held my interest in the first chapter, but I guess it feels a bit too predictable for mine taste, or perhaps I'm not in the mood to continue reading the book, not too sure I guess, or maybe I kind of read a little too much of women in spying business (I'll blame it on Tide Watchers by Lisa Chaplin.)
I don't think I'll continue reading the book
