If you like settings on the open seas, the fight for freedom, and historical accounts as the setting of a fictional adventure then you will like The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall.

With the looming backdrop of the war of 1812 as the newly birthed nation fights for its independence against England, The Liberty Bride is sure to entice any reader of adventure and romance to dedicate a day or two to its pages. I particularly enjoyed the back-and-forth between Emeline and Owen as they plotted and schemed to keep their true loyalties hidden while fighting the desire growing between them.

I have always adored MaryLu for her Legacy Of the King’s Pirates series, and The Liberty Bride only solidified her in my list of authors that will always grace my bookshelves.

War Forces a Choice Between Love and Country

A trip home from England to Maryland in 1812 finds Emeline Baratt a captive on a British warship and forced to declare her allegiance between the British and Americans. Remaining somewhat politically neutral on a ship where her nursing skills are desperately needed is fairly easy—until she starts to have feelings for the first lieutenant who becomes her protector. However, when the captain sends her and Lieutenant Owen Masters on land to spy, she must choose between her love for him and her love for her country.
