Gretchen Jeannetteabout this book: Dear Readers,
Think gritty historical fiction and romance don't mix? Think again...
Rebel spy Ethan Matlock must infiltrate the British military to thwart a plot to assassinate his commander in chief, General George Washington. Gaining the enemy's trust proves child's play for this master of deception, but trouble arises in the form of Miss Maddie Graves, a fierce supporter of the American cause whose activities complicate Ethan's mission. Worse, Ethan finds himself vulnerable to her charm, such that he assumes the added risk of keeping her from harm. With time running out to fulfill his duty, he resorts to vicious measures to unravel a conspiracy of power-hungry men. He will risk everything to save his commander, but will he find a way to rescue the love of his life?
"The Devil Take Tomorrow" was written for discriminating readers of 18th Century historical fiction. Growing up in an area rich in Revolutionary War history, I developed such a fascination with that era that I embarked on a journey to keep it alive in books. Nothing matters more to me than authenticity, and so I strive to weave my characters into the fabric of history, to have their actions influence true events in thrilling but credible ways.
If you enjoy a riveting adventure with a strong romantic element, you'll find much to like in this meticulously researched novel.
