This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Sir Philip Hampton seems to be exactly what he claims: a loyal Royalist newly returned from exile in France.
But Alysa Leighton must be without doubt, for in 1659 England, Civil War has set Royalist against Roundhead, and those who support the king, like Alysa's family, are always in peril.
If Philip proves a Roundhead spy, everyone Alysa loves is in grave danger. But the more Alysa learns of Philip, the more she likes him.
Soon a marriage proposal is in the air and Alysa realizes she is in love. But is Philip friend or foe?
"A blend of romance, conspiracy, and hidden identities... with just the right mix of action and seduction." ~Susan Tanner, author of Winds Across Texas
HEARTS OF REBELLION SERIES, in order:
Rich history, strong love story
I loved the history surrounding this story. It showed how people of wealth were affected by war. Alysa spoke with her father about politics and other matters, treating her like a son. She was fairly headstrong and had a smart mind of her own. Philip returned to claim his inheritance but had his secrets. There are lots of secrets in this story, some pull Alysa and Philip apart and some bring them together. Their love bridges all differences and danger around them.
