I never thought much about the war with the British.
Frederick is overlooking a plantation for his father in East Florida.
Rachel Folger wanted to be back in Boston helping the Patriots in some way but her father brought her to East Florida to work in his mercantile.
Frederick and Rachel fall in love but his plantation has slaves and he is a Tory.
This story is exciting and includes spies and who could they be, falling in love with someone considered an enemy, fires, a ball, snobs. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series called The Captain's Lady.
Jamie fell in love with Marianne Moberly last year but he realizes now there is not hope for their love. She is a Lady in the way the English have their titles, he is considered below her.
Marianne is surprised by the cold shoulder James Templeton is giving her after they had parted last year by declaring their undying love for one another.
Lord B. is very demeaning of his own four sons. He gives all his love and attention to Marianne and he likes Jamie (not enough for him to marry his daughter, not that James would dare ask it of him).
Robert Moberly mostly drinks and carouses his life away. Jamie feels God's leading him to find the right time to share the gospel with Robert.
Another great book in the series. I can't wait to get started on At The Captain's Command. The 3rd book.
I enjoy reading books where I also see the history of our country from a new viewpoint as well.
Even though there are 10 years between them and Dinah has sworn never to marry a seaman, there is an immediate attraction.
They are both in the mind set that England is right and they have no idea that their other family members support the rebels.
Very enjoyable and at times adventurous and stressful tales within these books.
Rebecca and Sebastian try to convince the other to see the marriage from their side of it. After Sebastian shares his story with her, Rebecca realizes that he is comparing all women to the one who betrayed him.
The Gentleman Takes a Bride Louise M. Gouge
Captain Thomas Mobley's children are grown and his daughter Elizabeth has her eyes set on someone of the peer. When Philip Lindsey burst into the church and stops her cousins wedding she has trouble keeping her eyes off him and constantly tells herself he is not a peer.
Her father invites the young man to stay with them until the matter of her cousins betrothed can be settled. Being already in a marriage contract to Lucy Lindsey he has taken her dowry early.
This book is about the different stages people are at in the English aristocracy, love and forgiveness. Of those who want power and those who want nothing to do with it. I enjoyed all the books in Louise's series.
