Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Lord George Gordon Audley had been Callista Brooke's best friend, and it was to Gordon she turned in desperation to avoid a loathsome arranged marriage. The repercussions of his gallant attempt ended with Callie in Jamaica, and Gordon on a one way trip to the penal colony of Australia. Now it's 1814, and Callie is in Washington, trapped in the battle between her native England and her adopted homeland. She is on the verge of losing everything, including her life, when Gordon cuts through the violent crowd to claim that she is his. Against all odds he had survived, and finding Callie is like reclaiming his tarnished soul. But the innocent friendship they shared as children has become a dangerous passion that may save or destroy them when they challenge the aristocratic society that exiled them both.

    Lord George Gordon Audley considered himself to be a good problem solver, which is why he enjoyed undertaking "missions" for his friend Lord Kirkland. But Gordon's latest assignment—to locate an English widow living in Washington, D.C., and bring her back safely to her family—seems destined to fail from the very start. After all, with the British and American governments currently at war with one another and the American capitol under siege, how in heaven's name is Gordon supposed to find one woman amid the chaos? Much to Gordon's surprise, once he enters the city, he is not only able to locate the lady he seeks but he also discovers that she is none other than his old childhood friend Callie Brooke. RITA Award–winning Putney has always set the bar for emotionally engaging, expertly researched historical romances, but she soars to new creative heights with the second book in her Rogues Redeemed series, following Once a Soldier (2016). The beautifully nuanced characters and danger-spiked plot are quintessential literary ingredients for Putney, but the inventive incorporation of historical details about the War of 1812 into the story truly make this a romance worth savoring.
