A War-Torn Countryside Is No Place for a Lady
Mercy Lytton is a lady like none other. Raised amongst the Mohawks, she straddles two cultures, yet each are united in one cause. . .to defeat the French. Born with a rare gift of unusually keen eyesight, she is chosen as a scout to accompany a team of men on a dangerous mission. Yet it is not her life that is threatened. It is her heart.
Condemned as a traitor, Elias Dubois faces the gallows. At the last minute, he is offered his freedom if he consents to accompany a stolen shipment of French gold to a nearby fort—but he is the one they stole it from in the first place. It turns out that the real thief is the beguiling woman, Mercy Lytton, for she steals his every waking thought.
Can love survive divided loyalties in a backcountry wilderness?
I found this book on the new release shelf a the Library and snagged it up.
I can't remember the last time I read a book set during this time period. It has been a long time but I have read other books by this author.
I absolutely LOVED this book!
It was full of excitement and adventure and romance.
Mercy Lytton was a spectacular heroine who was strong and brave and everything a warrior princess should be.
Elias Dubois was quite the puzzle at first. I wasn't sure which way the whole "traitor" angle was going to take.
I loved everything about this book. The setting, the characters and the intrigue. But especially the romance :)
